“The beasts....the beasts wish to...CONSUME me!”
Septimus (ノーズ Nōzu) is a boss character from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. He is one of the generals in charge of the Begnion forces. Though he is first seen in the Prologue of Part 3, he is not faced until Chapter 3-8.
Septimus was first seen in the prologue of the game at the border fortress of Flaguerre, where he was discussing the sizes of the force that should be taken out to take out the Laguz, as his aide, Silvano, was saying that they were only simply taking the rounds that day, when a soldier cried out that the "Sub-Humans" had reached Flaguerre, and Septimus then gloated that he was right. When either the Greil Mercenaries (your team) or the Gallian army reached the thickets that were near the fortress, Skrimir would yell that he is the general of the army and nothing could stop him, and Septimus would go crazy and say that the laguz would eat him and run in cowardice, leaving Silvano to command the forces.
General Septimus was probably most famous for his racism towards laguz and famous line: "The beasts....the beasts wish to...CONSUME me!" Fittingly enough, it was the very Laguz that he eternally feared that killed him in the Kauku Caves when Senator and Begnion Imperial Army Commander Valtome ordered him to lead the force to "Collect the bodies of the Laguz Alliance" when the Laguz Alliance fled into the caves to escape the Begnion forces. General Septimus and a large group of Begnion soldiers charged into the cave, not knowing that the Laguz Alliance was alive and well, and ready for combat. While Skrimir searched for an exit out of the cave, Ike led the force which would distract the Begnion forces and take down Septimus.

Septimus: They told me the enemy would be burnt by the time I reached them. The only thing I'd to do was carry their dead bodies back as proof...It's just my luck the enemy is alive and well! Why does this always happen to me?
- Vs. Ike
Septimus: Wh-Who are you?!
Ike: Ike of the Greil Mercenaries. You don't look too good. Maybe you should just leave...
Septimus: Wait a moment... HAH! Look everyone! Look at this one! He's not a beast! Oh, thank the goddess! Victory is nigh!
Ike: So... Chasing us into these caves wasn't the plum assignment that all the best generals wanted, huh?
Septimus: How DARE you! Take my spear, knave!
- Vs. Laguz
Septimus: AHHH! Th-they’re here! Th-th-the sub-humans! The mongrels are here! They want to consume me!
“I-I knew it... I knew I would end up like this...”
