Templer’s previous Shard Champion, a title given to the strongest Shard Caster in the country. Even though he held the prestigious title, he works as a farmer. He also, however, had turned the basement of his house into a hospital for those of the country of Jimoto who have been cast into exile, but when they started attacking the castle he helped to defend it against them. Dumas draws his Shards from an aqua-colored crystal on his right shoulder. His weapon is a brownish-orange and is about twice the width of Zed’s sword. His shard element is earth. It requires six Shards to activate.
Dumas bears a cross-like mark on his left palm, an inherited symbol of servitude that has run in his family for generations. He is obsessed with changing this ‘destiny’, and sought to do so by becoming the Shard Champion. To his chagrin, all that came with the title of Shard Champion was “useless honor” and being the first person to call when trouble came about, with no change in his station or position. Obsession turned to madness, and he became the Zymot usurpers’ spy, the Joker, in exchange for marriage to Princess Rebecca.
Hugh had no intention of honoring his bargain with Dumas, and intended to have him and a captured Robès kill each other off. The duel was more or less even (though Suraguna defeated Belladonna) until Zed showed up. Armed with a new sword and his more controllable Spirit, Rambos, Zed easily defeated Dumas. Afterward, Gláucio executed the exhausted Dumas by shocking and strangling him with his flail and throwing him into the fire pits surrounding the Zymot Jousting ring.
