Series appearancesEdit


Balthier was to appear in this cancelled game, where he was to "sweep in to save the day" near the end. The game's premise was to defend a cliffside fortress from invading marine forces of a vengeful sea king in the far uncharted reaches of Ivalice, the defense being led by Basch fon Ronsenburg. It was planned that airships would be inoperable around the fortress because of a flying continent above making the area even more isolated from the rest of Ivalice, but the airspace would be opened during the game allowing with Balthier to arrive and rescue the others from the brink of defeat.[1]

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

Balthier is a secret playable character, in the War of the Lions remake, and can be recruited by Ramza Beoulve. He can join the party during Chapter 4, after checking the rumor "Rash of Thieves" which occurs in the Merchant City of Dorter. When the thieves spring their trap and attack Ramza's party, they realize they have the wrong man, and Balthier shows up late on scene, and later is willing to join the party. His zodiac sign is Leo.

Balthier's job is Sky Pirate, and as such, wields several blades in battle. He can potentially do the greatest amount of damage in the game with Chaos Blade and Barrage.
