Players first meet Banon when [[Locke Cole]], [[Edgar Roni Figaro]] and [[Sabin Rene Figaro]] bring [[Terra Branford]] to see him. He immediately becomes interested in Terra because he knows she annihilated fifty of the finest Imperial soldiers single-handedly, a fact which Terra denies due to amnesia. He asks Terra to join the Returners, and while it is up to the player to decide if Terra agrees or not, the story remains the same as she is forced to flee with the Returners. With Terra on his side, Banon realizes he needs to protect the remaining [[Esper (Final Fantasy VI)|espers]] from the Empire. He decides to go to [[Narshe]] to take a look at the [[Valigarmanda|frozen esper]], and takes Terra, Edgar and Sabin on a raft ride down the [[Lethe River]] to get there.

On the way, the four meet up with [[Ultros#Final Fantasy VI|Ultros]] the octopus, and a [[Ultros (Final Fantasy VI boss)|battle]] ensues. During the struggle, Ultros sticks a tentacle onto Terra's leg, forcing Sabin to save her. He then boldly jumps from the raft to teach Ultros a lesson, but is swept away, and Banon, Edgar and Terra continue to Narshe alone. Once they get there, they can not enter the town because Terra is recognized as the person who attacked Narshe earlier.

Terra shows Edgar and Banon a secret way in, which they use to make their way to [[Arvis]], a Returner living in Narshe. They then speak to the [[Elder of Narshe]], who is reluctant to side with the Returners. Not even [[Cyan Garamonde]], [[Gau]] or [[Celes Chere]] can convince the Elder. [[Kefka Palazzo]] attacks Narshe to claim the esper and Banon has to lead a defense, which consists of Terra, Locke, Edgar, Sabin, Cyan, Gau and Celes. They succeed in holding back Kefka, but when they check on the esper, Terra reacts to it and turns into an esper herself, flying away.

A search party is formed to look for her. Meanwhile, Banon stays in Narshe and tries to convince the Elder to align the city with the Returners and by the time Terra is saved, Narshe has decided to do so. Banon formulates a plan to attack the Empire. Terra would plead to the espers in their [[Esper World|home]] to help, and attack [[Vector]] from the east, while Banon would lead a coalition of Returners and Narshe Guards to attack from the north.

The plan works, and Banon eventually winds up in Vector to find it in flames, worried that the espers had gone too far. What happens to Banon after that is unknown, and it is possible he is either betrayed and killed by the Empire, or died during the [[end of the world]]. The developers actually refuse to comment on his fate, with Sakaguchi saying "Use your imagination."<ref>[http://totscqcc.hp.infoseek.co.jp/vjamp.htm V-Jump issue (in Japanese)]</ref>

Banon's job wasn't listed within the Super Nintendo version of the North American game. It was removed. Within the ''[[Final Fantasy III Nintendo Player's Guide]]'', his job is given as Top Returner. The English Gameboy Advance version retained the job titles and Banon is a Oracle.
+
Banon is an [[Oracle]], and as such his [[stats]] are heavily weighted in the magic areas, while having low [[HP (Stat)|HP]], and [[Strength|Attack power]]. His [[Defense (Stat)|defensive stats]] are also quite high. Being a temporary character, his equipment is permanently set to a [[Punisher (Weapon)|Punisher]], [[Wizard's Hat|Magus Hat]] and a [[Silk Robe]]. Also, if Banon is [[Knocked Out|KO'd]] at any time while in the party, it counts as an instant [[Game Over (Term)|Game Over]]. His ability is [[Pray (Ability)|Pray]] (Health in the original SNES version), which simply casts [[Cura]] on the party for no [[MP (Stat)|MP]] cost. This makes Pray vulnerable to [[Runic]], and can be [[Reflect (Status)|reflected]], though it is unlikely for the player to ever see this done.

Banon and [[Leo Cristophe|Leo]] share the same slot, whatever [[row]] (back or front) Banon is currently or placed in before he leaves the party, Leo will be in the same row Banon last was.
