Pau is a support character in Dark Chronicle, found during the beginning of Chapter 4 in Veniccio. Pau first appears in Veniccio tending to Shingala's wound. When the common medicine he is using to tend to the wounds fails, he suggests that better medicine might be found in the Ocean's Roar Cave. Pau's rabbit-like appearance implies that he is a moon person, like those seen in the Starlight Temple.

Pau may be recruited as a support character after completing Chapter 4. After speaking with him inside his cave in Vennicio, he will ask Max and Monica to bring him a carrot, which may be given to him only after leaving his house and re-entering. After he is recruited, he will be found in the front most passenger car of Blackstone One, just before the engine room

His abilities include an automatic full display of the map, like the Map item, which also reveals the gate key monster (showing as a flashing dot). He also warns you of Mimics upon attempting to open a treasure chest.

Behind the scenes[]

According to the character designer, Jun Sonobe, Pau was originally supposed to join the main cast, and turn into Griffon at the very end, revealing him to have been Emperor Griffon's vessel all along. Max and Monica would then have to fight him, but the idea was scrapped. He personally considers it was too sad a plot twist, and was happy with the final outcome.[1]
