Devius is a non-player character in Sword of Mana.

Story Edit

Devius (birth name Gurnda) is the son of Lord Granz and Lady Medusa. This makes him half-human and half-Mavole. He was separated from his father and brother Stroud (Dark Lord) as a child. This seemed to have a psychological effect on him. He seemed to be very close to his mother, Medusa.

Devius lives in a huge mansion in the city of Jadd. From his place of residence and his behavior, one would think that he is a very rich and noble individual. He seems to have a fondness for birds. He would gather minstrels from all over the world to his mansion, where they were transformed into birds or Rabites for his mother's amusement. After he discovers his mother was killed by the Hero at the Altar of Time, he places a curse on Amanda. He turns into Mindflare, whom Duke defeats.

As a BossEdit

After a confrontation with Devius, he transforms into Mindflare.

Devius' true form

This can be easy or hard, depending on how strong you are and how you play your cards here. Basically, if you have been training and upgrading weapons, this should not be a huge problem for you. The only "challenging" thing about Mindflare is that you fight him on this rotating platform and you can only hit him when he lands and stops floating around. Mindflare himself does not have a lot of really serious attacks, but he has these Blue Homing Balls that if they touch you, they can inflict Darkness, which is a pain. The easiest way to go at him is to wait until he lands and stays in one spot, then run in the direction the platform is moving so you get to him FAST and crash into him so you stop moving and just nail the hell out of him with your Weapons. Magic is not suggested for this Battle, as its way too hard to use it right. Just get close and whack away at him and you will win.
