“I'm a bard, you know. I know Prince Shanan's face. Well anyway, do what you want. Anyone would want to save his own life first. There's no reason to fall along with this city.”
—Homer talking to Shannam

Homer is a unit that comes fairly late, but has great potential and can reach it fairly easily thanks to Elite. He specializes in Light Magic, but light magic is very scarce, so it is better to have him use whatever he can till he promotes, and then he should specialize in Wind. Also worth noting is his pursuit critical coefficient of 5 which is among the best in the game.
Between his low starting level, good growths, and access to Elite, Homer can put the Crusader Scrolls to exceptional use. With just the Dain and Baldur scrolls in his possession, his defense growth shoots up to 50%. With the Hezul scroll on top of this mix, he achieves a 100% HP growth as well, turning an initially frail mage into a potent physical tank.
“Gah! I don't want to die...”
—Homer's death quote
“Man, you could never have enough lives for this...”
—Homer's escape quote
Homer: Hey, what're you packing up for? You leaving or something?
Shannam: Ha... Staying here would be for nought...
Homer: Whoa, you can't leave yet. The people living here served you that much because they wanted your help. You're not gonna be very popular if you leave now. Especially among the women.
Shannam: N-No, my servants have come to pick me up... I'm a prince, so I can't leave my country for very long...
Homer: Oh, so you're the prince of Isaac? Come on, gimme a break. You can't fool me.
Shannam: Ulp... You knew?
Homer: I'm a bard, you know. I know Prince Shanan's face. Well anyway, do what you want. Anyone would want to save his own life first. There's no reason to fall along with this city.
Shannam: So you too...
Homer: Yeah, I'm leaving tomorrow, after I have my fun tonight.
Shannam: All right, then I'll be going. We might meet again.
Homer: Hey, wait a sec. At least tell me your real name.
Shannam: ...It's Shannam.
Homer: Huh, at least your names sound alike... See ya, Prince Shannam.

Homer: Oh...? Mm, nice, very nice. I'll cancel my other offers for you, babe.
Nanna: Huh? ...What are you talking about?
Homer: You see, this is my last night here. I want to make love to you all, but I've only got one body, so... Ow! Whoa, babe, what was that for!?
Nanna: What are you thinking!? Even the children and the elderly are working hard to protect this city! And you're just sitting here drinking in broad daylight... You should be ashamed!
Homer: H-Hey, you don't have to cry. Okay, okay, I'll help you out, all right? But I'm not strong, so don't give me any heavy work...
Homer: Hey, Shannam. What's up?
Homer: So now you're working for Lopto, eh? You don't really care who you work for, do you?
Shannam: W-Wait... I didn't want to... I ran out of cash, so I kinda had no choice...
Homer: Well, do what you want. It's none of my business.
Shannam: H-Hey, wait. You're just going to leave me here? Come on, help me out. We're friends, right?
Homer: I told you to do what you want. You want to come along? Fine with me.
Shannam: Yes... I'm sorry...you have my thanks.
Homer: ...You still don't sound like him at all...
Homer - Traveling Bard (旅の吟遊詩人 Tabi no Gin'yū Shijin lit. Traveling Minstrel)
He continued traveling as a bard, singing songs of Leif's saga all across Thracia. Because it was based on his true experiences, this saga was loved more widely by the people of Thracia than any other saga.
Homer was an ancient Greek blind poet, known for being the creator of The Iliad and The Odyssey.
