  • The refined Gradivus gives Sirius the obligatory spectrum stat boost in addition to giving him in-combat healing in the vein of inheritable weapons such as the Bellringer, meaning he can pass up on a healing special in favor of a damage special such as Bonfire. Be mindful that the Gradivus’s stat boost and in-combat healing will only occur during Enemy Phase or if the foe has full HP.
  • Atk/Res Unity is Camus’s best choice of A slot as it gives him a massive stat bonus to his Attack and Resistance should they be debuffed, while also giving him +5 Attack and Resistance as long as he has an ally within 2 spaces. Mirror Stance 3 can also be used if the Guard effect is preferred.
  • Lull Atk/Spd and Lull Atk/Def are both Camus’s ideal B slot skills thanks to the extra staying power provided by their Attack debuff. Which one is used depends on whether one wants to prevent follow-up attacks or deal more damage.
  • Joint Drive Atk gives Camus and any allies within 2 spaces a +4 boost to Attack, but Camus’s C slot can easily be swapped according to player preference.
  • Defensive stat boosting sacred seals such as Distant Defense round off Camus’s kit nicely.


Refined Gradivus

Camus’s refined Gradivus is a solid weapon, giving him a boost to all of his stats and in-combat healing in addition to inbuilt Distant Counter, which allows him to substitute Distant Counter with other A slot skills such as Atk/Res Unity.


Low Resistance

As is the case with many units in Fire Emblem Heroes, Camus is plagued with extremely low Resistance, making him easy prey for high firepower magic users such as Ophelia and Young Merric, although his ability to opt for a Resistance boosting A slot skill in place of Distant Counter can improve his prospects somewhat.

Effective Damage

While inheritable cavalry effective weaponry is rarely used, Camus should be mindful of units who have cavalry effectiveness built in to their exclusive weapons such as Micaiah and Duo Ephraim as they can potentially KO him in a single hit(or at the very least take off a massive amount of his HP).
