It's good to see you, Princess.

Artania as Garnet arrives in Lindblum

Artania is Cid's minister in Final Fantasy IX. He greets the party when they arrive in Lindblum for the first time and quickly arranges for an audience with Regent Cid for them.

Profile Edit

Minister Artania has a tall physique with long gray hair and a beard. He wears a brown overcoat with a green trim and white cuffs. He also is also adorned with a white surplice and bluish trousers and shoes.

He usually advises Regent Cid on upcoming events or the consequences of certain actions throughout the game. When he first appears, Artania greets Princess Garnet as well as the party and informs them of the motive for her kidnapping. As the game progresses he provides assistance as much as he can which usually involves access to different parts of Lindblum's Grand Castle or giving the party important items for their journey.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Artania is the man who formally greets the party upon their arrival in Lindblum via the Cargo Ship. Upon recognizing Garnet's pendant he immediately takes her to see Regent Cid.

Later, after Lindblum is attacked by Queen Brahne, Artania discreetly leads the party to Cid's chambers without alerting the Alexandrian Soldiers to their presence. Artania is often present when the party strategize their next move in Lindblum and offers advice and counsel when he can. He is also present when Zidane and Doctor Tot accidentally turn the Regent into a frog. He is frequently referred to by Garnet as "Uncle Artania".

Spoilers end here.

Trivia Edit

  • Artania's beard and ponytail have a similar style to Dagger's hair, right down to being tied with an orange bow.
  • Upon obtaining the Falcon Claw key item on Disc 3, the description of the item is by someone named Shaman Artania, suggesting that in some unofficial or otherwise dual capacity, Artania has role of both Minister and Shaman within Lindblum.
