“Even if you leave this place alive, the Faithful will hunt you down. How long will you place the lives of your friends at risk, Your Highness? You're more clever than that.”
Dolth appears as the third boss faced in Celica's route during Chapter 4: Land of Sorrow. When Celica's party reaches his keep he attempts to persuade the princess to lay down arms and allow him to escort her. Though she struggles answering, Mae threatens the cantor, resulting in the man siccing his necrodragons on the party among his small force of dread fighters, snipers, and arcanists. He is defeated but curiously survived the battle—likely due to Celica's hesitance to finish him. Resuming the conversation topic from earlier, the cantor continues to convince Celica to offer her soul up to Duma in exchange for the safety of Zofia and others (much like Jedah had done earlier), going so far as to assault Mae at her and Saber's urging Celica to escape. Having finally caved, Celica agrees to the cantor's demands and is about to depart with him, but the masked knight appears in the nick of time and finally fells the Duma devout.
Being a minor boss, his personality is not quite expansive by any measure. Much like others in the Rigelian army and the Duma Faithful, he is a wicked person who will harm/kill those who slight him or his faction. Aside of this, he does display a relative willingness to escort Celica to be offered up to Duma with no clear desire to attack her or her comrades, and he attempts to reason with the princess to peacefully surrender even after he is at the party's mercy. Once the princess is in his grasp he promptly leaves her comrades alone with no further attacks on them. This contrasts with many of the others in the Duma Faithful who have attacked Celica and her party at first sight, though Jedah's similar attempts earlier may have had an influence in Dolth making these decisions.
