Great Oracle Avarice is a character in The Legend of Heroes: A Tear of Vermillion. Avarice has great influence with many aristocrats and members of the Bardus Church. He lifted the ban on the Meefa hunt and endorsed the hunting of their furs. After being threatened by Madram, he confessed everything he planned to do with the Meefa fur. He was going to bribe the aristocrats and try to take the place of Supreme Priest Crior. He is sent to the Valkd Dungeon for interrogation.
Avarice is a person who is more interested in self-gain rather than spreading the word of Bardus and helping others. He takes any oppurtunity to advance himself in status, even if it means the lives of others. He is friendly towards people of great status such as Abbot Zaria and Merchant Garcia. He is considered selfish and corrupt by many people.
After the first encounter with Madram, he becomes fearful for his life and only cares about staying alive rather than trying to bring back his social status and wealth.
Avarice was able to secure the title of Great Oracle due to his contributions towards the Bardus Church. He was able to bring the Bardus Church back to life with his money making talent.
