Caius Qualls (カイウス・クオールズ Kaiusu Kuooruzu?) is the main protagonist in Tales of the Tempest.


As a boy, Caius lived with his foster father, Ramus, in a small village situated in a remote area of Aruera. Everything was peaceful until one day when a creature known as the Spot attacked, looking for Caius's crystal that had once belonged to an imperial guard. Hoping to protect the village, the young man attempted to fight off the Spot but the monster overpowered him, eventually forcing Ramus to change into a beast and protect his son. It was at this point that his foster father's identity as a Lycanthe was revealed to the villagers who quickly called for Lukius Bridges and Rommy to take him away. Mourning over what he had lost, Caius vowed revenge on the church and set out to save Ramus along with his childhood friend Rubia Natwick.

Caius has mixed blood, with his mother being the late Lady Melissa of the Lycanthe and his father being the human Pope. Because of this, his friends and even his foster father were unsure as to whether he would be able to transform into a beast. Forest Ledoyen especially seemed to think it was impossible, commenting on how all Lycanthe have a special mark on their bodies that allows them to shapeshift.

After the party jumped from the river around Janna to escape the Black Knights, Caius, Arria, and Ramus got separated from the party and wounded up on an unknown shore. There, they encountered Rommy, who then used her magic to forcefully transform Ramus into his Lycanthe form and make him attack Caius and Arria. Caius was then forced to battle his own father. After Caius defeated Ramus, Rommy turned Ramus into stone, thus ending his life. Caius, fueled by rage and the desire for revenge, transformed into his Lycanthe form. With very little control over his Lycanthe form, Caius went berserk and quickly defeated Rommy in a battle. Rommy, realizing that Caius was too powerful, retreated.
