Byblos is a playable character from Final Fantasy Tactics. He appears in the Midlight's Deep and resembles a Reaver, but has a different palette coloration and abilities. He serves as a guest during the battle with Elidibus; if he survives, he joins Ramza Beoulve's party, though it is never explained why.

Byblos is weak to Fire-elemental attacks, just like the Reavers.


This monster is distinguished by its sharp claws and large horns. It stands on two feet and has a slender tail.

Byblos might allude to the boss of the same name and appearance from Final Fantasy V, that was fought in a library and thus named after an undeciphered writing system. Byblos syllabary, also known as the Pseudo-hieroglyphic script, Proto-Byblian, Proto-Byblic, or Byblic, is an undeciphered writing system known from ten inscriptions found in Byblos.
