A brave captain who never strays from the knight's true path. An Archadian plot in its war with Rabanastre two years prior saw Basch blamed for the assassination of King Raminas, but throughout it all he has remained devoted to Princess Ashe.
Basch is a playable character who could be initially recruited during the Challenge Event Consorting with Sky Pirates as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Draklor Laboratory stage on the Classic difficulty.
In a game already rich with Knight-type characters, Basch's role is not much of a surprise. He will be a Final Fantasy XII party's first line of defense against physical enemies, and with a little luck, he can be an excellent support for said party. On his own, he is a strong attacker with a broad range of melee weapons at his disposal. Basch's Resistance, like that of many defenders, could be his downfall if not offset with a strong piece of armor.

Upon breaking his initial level cap, Basch acquires the Record Materia Shield of Dalmasca, which allows the wielder to deal more damage when a shield is equipped.
He can equip accessories.
