“That Lifis, he's going overboard... Of course...I'll have no more use for him once I find the prince. Well...what to do now... I suppose I should first let my master know of this matter.”
August is a former Blaggi bishop who appears in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. He acts as the tactician of the Lifis gang but was disgusted by their brutality and killing of innocents, and later becomes Leif's tactician.
According to Bucks, he knows how to torture people and taught Lifis too, insinuating this why he was kicked out of the Blaggi order, however the truth in his words is debatable. August does not dispute this so its possible that August had a shady past before reforming or has a bad reputation.
August is a name of the eighth month of the current calender, taken from Augustus, the successor of Julius Caesar, who both thought they were important people and arrogantly rearranged the whole calender and shortened the already existing 10 months to fit them in. That is why September, though "sept" meaning seven, is the ninth month of the year; same thing with October, November, and December.
- Leif gains a leadership star when August joins the party as their tactician. The only other instance of this is when Dorias is with the party, although unlike him, August is with the party until the game's end.
