to:

* UsedToBeASweetKid: When he was younger, all he wanted was friends. His father helped turn him into a power hungry, jealous monster. According to Eliwood and Hector's A support, when they were young they were at a meeting where all the Marquis promised to come to one another's aid if there ever was a crisis. Little Erik picked up on this, jumped up, and cut his hand to make a blood oath. Hector was annoyed by his over eagerness and only one other kid was brave enough to take the blood oath with Erik. It suggested that neither of Eliwood or Hector was the one to take his hand, but they took each other's. Eliwood points out that none of the kids knew what to do when Erik did that and Hector mentions that he ran off when the going got tough. This may have started his resentment for the other lordlings, not that it excuses anything. They were all kids at the time and having a kid cut his or her own hand is a lot to ask of someone so young.

!Laus

!!Lord Darin of Laus
The Marquess of Laus. Entranced by Ephidel's promises of power, he attempts to incite a civil war against Ostia for the role of leader of the Lycian League. When it backfires on him, he flees for Valor and is placed in charge of the defense of the Dragon's Gate.

->'''Class:''' General
----
* AGodAmI
* AlasPoorVillain: For all that he'd done, even ''Hector'' pitied him after his death. Once Nils reveals how Ephidel slowly corrupted him for Nergal's malicious ends, it's not as easy to hate him anymore (even if he's still a dick). [[spoiler:Then he's brought back as a Morph, much to the appalled horror of the Lords.]]

!!Erik of Laus
The son of Lord Darin, and a former classmate of Eliwood and Hector. Both jealous of their abilities and dismissive of them, he volunteers to lead the defence of Laus to try to lull them into a false sense of security.

* {{Jerkass}}
* HeelFaceTurn: It's implied he becomes a decent ruler at the game's end.

* NobleDemon
* WakeUpCallBoss: Has suprisingly high defenses, to the point where it's difficult to take him out with anybody except the Lords.

!!Bernard
The Knight Commander of Laus, tasked with the occupation of Castle Caelin.

->'''Class:''' General
----
* BadassBeard
* TheBrute
* TheDragon: As Knight Commander, this was presumably his role toward Lord Darin. Subverted in that Darin's abandoned him by the time we meet him, and it's implied the Black Fang replaced him with Cameron.
* EvilRedhead: Though he's not really ''evil''...
* GracefulLoser: "This is a just reward... for Laus's brutality..."
* NobleDemon
* PunchClockVillain: Strongly implied to have wanted no part in his lord's conquest, but MyCountryRightOrWrong...
