Kaus Debonair was the fourth and final Knight to be appointed to the
Four Devas by Empress Endora. Debonair's appointment to the Four
Devas was somewhat unusual because he did not come from a rich and
powerful family like the other Devas did. Ralph Figaro was his
childhood friend, and it has been argued that he was appointed to the
Devas because of his connections with Figaro.
While being a great all-around warrior, Debonair is most known for
his extremely rigid moral standards. One time, a merchant tried to
bribe Debonair in an attempt to get exclusive trading rights on a
certain private road. Not only did Debonair refuse the bribe, he also
had the merchant imprisoned! Needless to say, while Debonair was
very well respected, he was not well liked by many people.
He was, however, held in very high regard by the people of the Zenobian
region because of his strong committment, dedication, and morals.
Empress Endora eventually tried to tighten the reign on the Kingdom
of Zenobia, and it is rumored that Debonair was demoted to "babysit"
the Kingdom of Zenobia because he refused to go along with the Empress'
Despite the fact that he had been demoted, Debonair still performed his
job very well, and he confronted the rebels at Zenobia Castle when they
were attempting to liberate the Kingdom of Zenobia. He fought against
the Knight Ashe, who he had imprisoned for slaughtering the Zenobian
royal family (even though that was proven to be untrue later). He
lost the battle to Ashe and the rebels, but he did not fight to the
death like the other Devas would later do. He reportedly said that
he made an oath to give his life for his Empress, but Endora was no
longer his Empress because she had become an evil "impostor." Destin
Faroda, the leader of the rebels, told Debonair about the plans of
Endora and Rashidi--Debonair went back to the Highlands to find out if
what Destin had said was true.
When he returned to the Highlands, Endora was not very pleased with
him; due to a suggestion from Rashidi, she imprisoned him in the Sky
Island Temple of Shangrila, where the Goddess of Justice (Fellana)
was said to reside. Endora also sent her corrupted son Gares to
watch over Debonair while he was imprisoned. The rebellion movement
also took to the sky though, and the rebels eventually liberated
Shangrila from the Empire's control. The rebels rescued Debonair, and
he was reunited with Norn, his lover who had since joined the
rebellion--as a result, he also joined the rebellion.
Eventually, he confronted his fellow Devas and defeated them in battle;
he beat Figaro and Luvalon on his own, and teamed up with Prince
Tristan to defeat Previa. General Debonair would become a major
player in the rebellion movement, contributing significantly to the
defeat of the Zeteginean Empire. After peace was restored to Zenobia,
Debonair joined Destin on his quest to restore peace to the northern
country of Palatinea, fighting against the Holy Lodis Empire.
