Beowulf Cadmus
Temples? Ah, where people worship the gods. Or perhaps the flat areas bracketing the forehead.
~ Beowulf Cadmus


Beowulf Cadmus, also known as Beowulf Kadmas, is an optional character from Final Fantasy Tactics that prior to the events of Final Fantasy Tactics served as a general only to leave after a series of events. A former captain of the Gryphon Knights of Lionel, he now spends his time looking for his fiancée Reis Duelar. His birthday is October 4. Beowulf first joins Ramza during a series of side-quests as an unpayed mercenary in turn helping Ramza after he aided him in turning his girlfriend back to human after becoming a dragon as well as rescuing her and the only character in the game to posses the Templar class as such he has access to many Hax in battle.

Beowulf used to be the captain of Lionel's Gryphon knights. Liked by his men, he became good friends with his lieutenant, Aliste Rosenheim. He considered him a rival as well as the only person with skills as good as his own.

Eventually, Beowulf fell in love with the Dragonkin Reis Duelar. The two of them were quickly engaged. However, the Celebrant Bremondt Freitberg was also infatuated with Reis, and would do anything for her love. He saw Beowulf as an obstacle, and tried to dispose of him.

He first claimed the captain was a heretic and stripped him of his rank. When Beowulf would still not leave Reis, he prepared a curse for him. However, Reis sacrificed herself for her love, and took the curse in his place, becoming the Holy Dragon. Reis then left, and Beowulf went in pursuit.
