GSDD Arcanus


Alex, (Codenamed Arcanus in Dark Dawn) is a Mercury Adept from Imil and the central antagonist of the Golden Sun series. He seeks to receive the full power of the Golden Sun that will grant him both immortality and the power to manipulate all the elements of Weyard. Although he has never actually fought the party, various encounters have strongly implied that his power has both the entire party and every boss scene thus far in the series outclassed. He has absorbed each of the Lighthouse beacons and eventually received 3/4 of the Golden Sun's power, but the Mars Lighthouse has instead been absorbed by Isaac and his friends thanks to the clever tactics of The Wise One.
