Cyuss Warren is one of the main characters of the first Star Ocean, as well as its remake, Star Ocean: First Departure.


Beneath his boorish manner, Cyuss is a "friendly rival" type of character who recognizes Roddick's potential. Due to a spat he had with his father Lias prior to the story, he travels the world in the hopes of becoming stronger so he can face his father once again, to show that he has changed.


Star Ocean: Fantastic Space Odyssey/First Departure

Cyuss is first encountered in Haute, when he warns Roddick and Ilia that the swords they are buying are cheap imitations. After he runs off, the two find him in the local shops, taking on the delivery job they had their eyes on. Cyuss says he'll tag along with the two of them to help in the delivery, and they go to Portmith to get the item.


Go to Haute, go into the item shop, talk with the item shop owner, Badam, about the quest. He accepts your offer but Roddick has to get a weapon. So run to the bottom part of Haute and talk to the "Weapon Master"Say you would like to buy the sword for 20 fol, and Cyuss will come rushing to whack the master up. Go back to the item store, and there will be more discussion. Endpoint is Cyuss joins the party temporarily. Go across Mt Meteorx, to Portmith, get the goods from the weapon shop in Portmith, and return to Haute. once the quest ends, you will get the option to keep Cyuss or not.

There are three options:

  1. Ask him to join you. 
  2. Ask him about the treasure (after which you still have to make a choice). 
  3. Say good day and goodbye to him (he won't join). 

If you get him you can't get:

  1. Phia, in the early game (you can get her later, in the game).
  2. Ashlay.
  3. Erys.


FD Cyuss Warren

Cyuss is well versed in the ways of the sword. Much like Ashlay, many of his Special Arts are shared with Roddick. Many of his weapons are elemental based, which is both a vantage and a disadvantage depending on the situation.

Family Tree

Cyuss Tree


  • If the player recruits Cyuss, it becomes impossible to recruit Ashlay Bernbeldt and, by an indirect extension, Erys Jerand.
  • In the PSP version only, if Cyuss has a high enough affection rating for Roddick, Cyuss will challenge you to one final duel before he jumps back into the Time Gate at the end. Winning or losing changes nothing except the dialogue.
  • Cyuss is one of two characters whose favorite food (in his case, Tropical Melody) requires a character age 20 or older to make (the other being Ilia).
  • His Japanese voice actor, Hiroki Touchi, is a regular in the series, voicing a playable character in every entry to date.
