The following section contains potential story spoilers!

Albus was the former captain of the city watch in Noblecourt. He was said to be a privileged and honored man who served as Geoffrey Azelhart’s right hand, but was believed to have been murdered by the Obsidians before they seized the city watch. In actuality, he was with the Obsidians himself.

10 years prior to the events of Octopath Traveler, Albus sold out Geoffrey to the Obsidians for possessing knowledge about the Gate of Finis. Simeon, himself, and Rufus, then murdered Geoffrey, leading to the destruction of House Azelhart and allowing Albus to seize power in Noblecourt.

Later on, he is confronted by a now-adult Primrose and his former friend and second-in-command Revello, to the shock of the latter. After a battle between Primrose and her companions, he is defeated and killed.

BattleEdit

Albus will begin battle alone, but will increase his actions per turn to 2 in the earlier half of the battle. At 50% health, he will use Human Shield, which summons 2 Obsidian Officers to his side and locks all of his weaknesses.

Albus has attacks that inflict blindness and may incapacitate allies inflicted with blindness. Equipping allies with a Bright Stone or Vivifying Stone is recommended.

  • Attack: Physical attack, single attack.
  • Shoulder Smash: Heavy physical attack, single target. Inflicts Debuff Decreased Physical Attack Decreased Physical Attack to target for 2 turns.
  • Eye Gouge: Physical attack, single target. Inflicts Status Blindness Blindness for 2-5 turns.
  • Flay Skin: Physical attack, random allies. Hits 4-6 times.
  • Death to the Unseeing: Effect. Incapacitates all allies afflicted with Status Blindness Blindness. Only used if at least one ally is afflicted with blindness.
    • The effect will be nullified on targets equipped with
      Vivifying Stone
       
      Equip: Prevents instant death
      .
    • The effect cannot be reflected through skills such as Reflective Veil nor avoided through Sidestep.
  • Settle down, you whelps!: Used once Albus reaches 60% of his maximum HP. Albus increases his actions per turn to two.
  • Human Shield: Used once Albus reaches 50% oh his maximum HP. Summons 2 Obsidian Officers.
    • Albus is using his lackey as a human shield...: Used only immediately after the first usage of Human Shield. Seals all of Albus's weaknesses.
      • Albus is defenseless!: Used once both Obsidian Officers have been defeated. Unlocks all of Albus's weaknesses.
    • But Albus's men can fight no more...: No effect. Subsequent usage of Human Shield fails.
  • I'll show you true darkness... // Albus brandishes his dagger ominously...: Albus enters boost mode for 1 turn. Uses Eye Slash if not broken before Albus's next turn.
    • Eye Slash: Charges for 1 turn. Physical attack, targets entire party. Chance to inflict Status Blindness Blindness for 2-3 turns.

TriviaEdit

  • The surname Albus means white in Latin. This is somewhat ironic in that Albus’s moves are themed around blindness, or blackness.
  • Corvus albus is the scientific name of the pied crow.
