“Kee hee hee…Wretched Altean whelp, stumbling home to the slaughter... What fool throws away a life already so preciously bought? Your mother, Liza, is dead; I killed her myself. Your sister Elice lives only because Gharnef wanted her. So what will become of you, little prince? Will you run for your life a second time? Or will you stay this time to die? Emperor Medeus would not put me on this throne if he thought you could remove me from it, kee hee hee...”
—Morzas to Marth in Shadow Dragon
Morzas ( モーゼス Mōzesu, Moses in the Japanese version) is an enemy character from the Archanea Series of Fire Emblem. He is a Mage Dragon of the Basilisk clan, who serves Dolhr's Emperor Medeus. He took the place of Camus as the overseer of Altea Castle. However, unlike Camus, he is very cruel, killing Atlean captives for the smallest reasons. He tries to stop Marth from reclaiming the Altean throne, but is killed by Marth's army. He also murdered Marth's mother, Liza.
Despite his brief appearance, Morzas does show a bit of his personality as a cold, proud, and loyal (to Medeus) Dragon.
