“Ha ha... You're so naive! You're no knight. And you're no mercenary, either, you dolt! You know nothing! You can carry your precious morals straight to the grave!”
—Eubans talking to Heath
Eubans is an enemy boss character in Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken. He is the commander of a mercenary band which is extremely loyal to the Marquess of Laus, Darin, as shown when he still attacked Ostia, even after Darin had abandoned them. He is also known for his lightning quick battle formation, which makes him known as the "Hurricane" (although Legault, one of the Black Fang's members has the same nickname, perhaps due to a translation oversight). Sealen and Heath are members of his mercenaries. After recruiting Heath, if you use him to attack Eubans then they will have a short conversation before fighting. His mercenary army appears in Chapter 15 of Hector's story trying to recapture castle Laus, but you do not fight Eubans in that chapter, as he leaves Sealen to oversee the attack. He is finally fought in Kinship's Bond, where he leads his forces to attack Eliwood and Hector at a fort on Ostia's border on their way to meet with Uther, Marquess Ostia. Also note that on Hard mode, he will advance and attack units within his range.
In the Japanese version of the game, Eubans was known as the "Fierce Eagle", which fits well into the chapter he first appears in, "Talons Alight".
Normal Modes and Eliwood Hard ModeEdit

** Hard Mode only; dropped when defeated
Hector Hard ModeEdit
* Dropped when defeated
Eubans' stats are nothing to write home about. In fact, aside from his HP, he is actually worse then Uhai, a boss fought (with the added boon of a forest, no less) at least three chapters ago. In Eliwood's story, Eubans's starting position is surprisingly close to the player's, and with most of the reinforcements coming from different parts of the map, he may well die early on in the chapter. This is especially true in Hard mode, where he will attack anyone who enters into his range, which actually spreads out far enough to cover the Ballistae near the center of the map.
In Hector's campaign, Eubans has made his base in the forested southeastern corner of the map, and will require a dedicated effort to reach. As he carries the game's second (and, in Hector's Hard mode, final) Knight Crest, reaching him is highly recommended, though optional.
Conversation with HeathEdit
Eubans: You are a traitor, Heath. You know nothing of honor!
Heath: I... No. I simply must live a life of which I am not ashamed. Commander Eubans... It is not too late. Give the order to stop. If you do...
Eubans: Ha ha... You're so naive! You're no knight. And you're no mercenary, either, you dolt! You know nothing! You can carry your precious morals straight to the grave!
