This build's modus operandi is speed, and lots of it. Given how lackluster his base stat spread is, this build assumes that Canas has S-rank summoner support. Lukas or Brave Ike are solid choices for ally supports, soaking up physical blows that could shatter Canas while he strikes down magic units who would threaten them otherwise. Canas should always be kept adjacent to his supported ally if possible, as the combination of support and his Owl tome grants 4 very welcome points to all of his stats in combat.

While the drop in overall bulk may be drastic, Canas's Resistance is high enough on it's own that sacrificing it isn't too worrisome while dropping his Defense to a less-awkward level helps optimize his spread some. In return, Canas reaches 50 Attack and 38 Speed, allowing him to escape being doubled by many speedier foes as well as letting him do just that to any slow, low-Resistance green units unlucky enough to be in range. Desperation meshes well with his native Reciprocal Aid, allowing him to provide allies a second wind as well as put himself in Desperation range. If a more supportive role is needed, Escape Route can be used instead to grant Canas the ability to warp next to any ally after dropping below half his health, which synergizes well with both his support skill and his tome's combat buff effect.

The C skill is flexible, as one can opt for a more supportive Canas through buffing his allies through either his native Res Tactic, inheriting a Drive/Spur/etc. to fit his team's needs, or (in the event that a player is feeling especially spicy), throw in an Attack or Speed Wave to go all in on his offensive nature. For Seals, Atk/Spd Bond is his best option, as it complements the ally-adjacent nature of the build and goes especially well with Escape Route.

While far from a high-tier threat, this build aims to do Canas the justice that IntSys won't. He may require significant love and support to really shine, but if a player needs a free red mage and has utter disregard for tier lists, he'll find a good home on your next team.

Canas’s Res is ok but with inheritance,it can become better.With Res Tactic,he can support his allies with helping them stand against mages and take some hits as well. With the Reciprocal Aid and Renewal,he can be a Healer as well. Also with Keen Rauorwolf,he can be a threat to cavaliers but Rauorblade can work fine as well. Plus Atk/Res Bond 3 will further give him a boast. So Canas can be a combination of a supporter,healer,magic tank,and attacker.

Mage Bait
Click to show/hide build description 
As the name implies, this lets Canas bait almost any long-range mage to take them out before the rest of the team catches up. Quick Riposte will let him proc Iceberg in one round if he gets doubled (which he most often will), while his Assist will let him heal himself back to full to do it again or get an ally in Desperation range. Atk+3 and Res Ploy prop up that damage as well, and the only mages that end up giving this build trouble are Micaiah, Lute, or a cavalry-buffed Reinhardt

Canas' only really outstanding stat is his solid 33 res, but even that gets outclassed by free units like Arvis with his higher res and better ploying ability. To that end, building around Canas' Owl tome is my favored way to build him. Rather than positioning to get the most out of his Owl tome, it's far more efficient to have him use the B-slot teleport skills to get a consistent +7/+7 from Atk/Spd Bond. With a +spd refine, Canas will reach a workable 50/38 offensive statline while adjacent to just one ally. If you're on a budget, Fury in the A-slot is a good alternative for a bit less power, or for even more power if you put Atk/Spd Bond in his seal slot. Either way, Canas also makes for a decent splash on mixed flying teams that run Guidance and lack a red mage.

Based off of his statline, Moonbow is probably the best choice for a Special Trigger, giving a little extra oomph on a low cooldown. If you opted to go for a build with Fury, Iceberg can add 18 damage if you think the extra turn is worth it.

As a result of teleporting around, Canas' C skill should be built to support your other units. Smoke skills are a well-rounded choice, and Breath of Life is an option for Chain Challenges. Spur skills can be used in conjunction with Draw Back to support your enemy phase units.

For seals, you've got options depending on which phase or mode you want to build around. Smoke is a great option, as can Hardy Bearing if you've accidentally fallen into the trap of a gimmicky vantage build in the arena. If you'd like, Spur Def/Res, Breath of Life, or mixing Smoke skills can be used as both a seal and C skill tailored to whichever mode you're playing.

This build isn't necessarily here to make Canas the strongest unit out there, but rather it's to give one of my favorite characters a unique niche in an overpopulated pool of free red mages.
