Anna
Tellah's daughter elopes with Edward (whom Tellah thinks is just a lowly bard). She is killed when Golbez's Red Wings strafe Damcyan Castle, and she protects Edward with her body. She serves as Edward's inspiration to be brave in battle.

Asura
The queen of the Phantom Beasts joins you if you defeat her. Getting her is the only way to get Leviathan. (See also Summon:Asura)

Expand Images

Baigan
The Captain of Guards of Baron, Baigan is a snitch, a faker, and not a very nice-looking person either. He squeals on Cecil, getting him demoted, then he attacks him when he makes his way into the castle to defeat the king.

Expand Images

Barbariccia
(Aliases: Valvalis (NA), Barbariccia (JP,DS)) The Emperor/Fiend of Wind, she lives in her floating tower (which looks a lot like the Tower of Babel). She's the one who keeps Rosa captive during the game. Her name comes from Dante's Inferno, an ancient work.

Expand Images

Cagnazzo
(Aliases: Kainazzo (NA), Cagnazzo (JP,DS)) The Emperor/Fiend of Water looks like a giant blue turtle. He was the one who took over the kingdom of Baron by killing the king, Odin, and disguising himself as the king. He then let Golbez come in and wreak havoc. His name comes from Dante's Inferno, an ancient work.

Cecil Harvey [HERO]
Cecil was raised with his friend Kain by the king of Baron. The king taught Cecil the art of the Dark Sword. His skills eventually became so great that he was appointed the leader of Baron's Red Wings airship squad. However, the king's orders to him become more and more erratic, and Cecil begins to have doubts about his king's honor when he is ordered to torch a peaceful Mysidia and steal the Water Crystal. Cecil is dogged by his own sense of morals throughout the game, until he becomes a Paladin and leaves his dark art. We find out much later that Cecil is the son of KluYa, a Lunarian (which makes FuSoYa his uncle) and the brother of Golbez. Rosa is his lover. (See also Jobs:Dark Knight, Jobs:Paladin)

Cid Pollendina [GUEST]
The mastermind behind Baron's Red Wings airship squadron, he's a crusty man, fairly old, who nevertheless has the work ethic of an entire anthill. He overworks himself several times throughout the game, risking his life, but he's tough as nails. He lives with his daughter in Baron Town. (See also Jobs:Scholar)

Expand Images

Cindy
(Aliases: Cindy (NA), Mag (JP)) One of the three Magus Sisters living in Valvalis's Castle. She's the fat one.

Expand Images

Edge [HERO]
The Young Master of Eblan, Edge is a master ninja and royal pain. He has a major attitude problem, and for some reason thinks he's very attractive to ladies. He has a massive crush on Rydia. Cid enjoys making him work to improve the airships. Edge's parents, the king and queen of Eblan, were cruelly experimented on by Lugae without Rubicant's permission, causing Edge to really lose his temper. His real name is Edward Geraldine. (See also Jobs:Ninja)

Expand Images

Edward Chris von Muir [GUEST]
(Aliases: Edward (NA), Gilbert (JP)) Edward is the prince of Damcyan. He's a great bard, but also a coward. He elopes with Anna, much to Tellah's consternation; Anna is killed protecting him during an attack by Golbez. Edward is stricken ill for quite a while by an attack by Leviathan. (See also Jobs:Bard)

Expand Images

Fusoya [GUEST]
(Aliases: FuSoYa (NA), FuSuYa (JP)) The ancient Lunarian watches over the people of the moon as they sleep. He knows all White and Black Magic. He joins Cecil temporarily in his quest against Golbez. As it turns out, Cecil and Golbez are actually FuSoYa's nephew; FuSoYa's brother was KluYa. (See also Jobs:Red Mage)

Expand Images

Gilbert
See Edward Chris von Muir.

Giott, King
The king of the dwarves in the underground is a jolly guy who tries his best to aid everyone against Golbez. He rules kindly with his daughter Luca at his side.

Expand Images

Golbez [VILLAIN]
(Aliases: Golbez (NA), Golbeza (JP)) An evil dude with red eyes and a horned helmet, Golbez commands the Four Emperors. One of them takes over the throne of Baron and institutes Golbez as the head of the Red Wings, but that pretense is soon destroyed. Golbez's aim is to gain the eight Crystals, but even he doesn't know why. Later we find out that Zemus is the one controlling him. Golbez reveals that he's Cecil's brother, which makes his father KluYa and his uncle FuSoYa. At the end he turns out to be a basically nice guy, I guess.

Expand Images

Kain Highwind [HERO]
(Aliases: Kain (NA), Cain (JP)) Raised by the king of Baron with his childhood friend Cecil, Kain nevertheless forsook the Dark Sword for his father's Dragon Knight skills with the spear. The king looked down on him for this, but Kain felt he had to uphold his father's spirit. Kain unfortunately has a weak mind and is a prime target for Golbez to prey on. Kain switches allegiances no less than four times throughout the game. His private love for Rosa doesn't help much, either, seeing as she's Cecil's honey. (See also Jobs:Dragoon)

Expand Images

Kainazzo

Kluya
This character doesn't actually appear in the game. Fusoya's brother, a Lunarian, traveled to earth, believing it to be a really good place despite all the Lunarians' protests. His children were Cecil and Golbez.

Expand Images

The true king of Baron was killed by Kainazzo. However, his spirit still lurks in one of the towers, and he allows Rydia to summon him if Cecil can defeat his spirit. (See also Summon:Odin)

Expand Images

Palom [GUEST]
A potty-mouthed ten-year-old Black Wizard. Palom goes out of his way to try to offend everyone he can, or so it seems to his twin sister Porom. He's just as brave as her, however, and almost as wise, much as she hates to admit it. (See also Jobs:Black Mage)

Expand Images

Porom [GUEST]
A ten-year-old White Wizard, she was taken under the wing of the Mysidia Elder for her great skills. A very proper and polite child, she is forever trying to endure the antics of her twin brother Palom. Despite their goings-on, she's very wise and very brave when it comes down to it. (See also Jobs:White Mage)

Expand Images

Rosa Farrell [HERO]
Cecil's lover lives in Baron Town with her mother. She became a White Wizard to be able to help protect others, her real wish in life. She has a very good heart, and her longing for Cecil after he disappears causes her to fall ill with sunstroke after blindly searching for him. (See also Jobs:White Mage, Archer)

Expand Images

Rubicante
(Aliases: Rubicant (NA), Rubicante (JP,DS)) The Emperor/Fiend of Fire is an honorable man - he always heals you before you fight him. He rules the Tower Of Babel; Lugae is his dubiously sane right-hand man. His name comes from Dante's Inferno, an ancient work.

Expand Images

Rydia [HERO]
A summoner from the town of Mist, Rydia's mother dies when her Phantom Beast, a white dragon, is inadvertently killed by Kain and Cecil. Rydia, a small child, doesn't trust Cecil but falls ill thanks to an overblown Tita Summon she uses in self-defense. After Cecil saves her from some soldiers, she joins him. She's later swallowed by Leviathan, who raises her in the Land of Summons. Since time travels differently there, by the time she rejoins Cecil, she's fully grown. (See also Jobs:Black Mage, Jobs:Summoner)

He's a hotheaded geezer who seldom thinks before rushing into things. His daughter Anna runs off with Edward, causing Tellah to angrily search after her. Finding out she was killed by Golbez sends him on a rage-filled quest to find Meteor and use it against him, even if it kills Tellah in the doing. (See also Jobs:Red Mage)

Yang Fang Leiden [HERO]
The head Monk at Fabul, Yang is a pure-hearted and valiant warrior. His loving wife is quite patient as he gallivants around saving the world.

After a very brave and very stupid move which destroys the Tower of Babel, Yang is taken by the Sylphs to recover. (See also Jobs:Monk)

Zemus [VILLAIN]
