Paithos (プットス Puttos) is a supporting character in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. He is the uncle of Amiti and the ruler of the kingdom of Ayuthay. He is technically an Adept, though one of extremely limited power, as, by his own admission, he has barely enough power to move even a pebble.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn[edit | edit source]
As the ruler of the kingdom of Ayuthay. He presides over the kingdom in a time of prosperity brought about by the activation of the Alchemy Well.
Paithos, upon being met by Matthew's group, reveals the lineage of Amiti. For his whole life, Amiti had believed that he was conceived by his mother's powerful abilities as an Adept. This, Paithos explains, is entirely false. Not only does he have a father, but his mother was not an Adept, not even an extremely weak one like himself. He goes on to explain that Amiti had inherited his powers as a Mercury Adept from his father, though, apart from calling him an incredibly powerful Adept, Paithos does not know any further details about Amiti's father.
He is saddened when his nephew, Amiti (the crown prince and heir to his throne, since Paithos has none of his own), informs him that he must depart with Matthew and his group after learning the power of Insight, but is nonetheless accepting and encouraging of his kin's decision.
After the Grave Eclipse begins, if the player returns to Ayuthay, they will find Paithos absent from his throne. He is in fact ill and bed-ridden within the inn. He is glad to see Amiti and tells him that he must assume the throne, as he is bound for death, but Amiti turns him down, saying that his quest is not finished, and the world is still in danger. Paithos then says that he will endure at the very least until Amiti and friends have accomplished their ends. If his mind is read though Spirit Sense, he will give a hint as to the location of a great treasure, the potent Heirloom Ring.
