Yūkyū no Kaze Densetsu: Final Fantasy III YoriEdit
Desch appears in the manga adaptation of Final Fantasy III. He initially appears in a villainous role, using birds to attack towns and brainwash people into serving him. He captures and brainwashes Muuchi, forcing the rest of the Warriors of Light to rescue him. Desch turns out to be under the influence of a monster and, upon its defeat, turns good. He accompanies the party to the Castle of the Ancients and assists in the fight against Hein. He eventually sacrifices himself by merging with the Living Woods and sending the heroes to the surface. Desch differs from his later appearances in that he is more of a physical brawler, being strong enough chop a tree. He also has the ability to summon and command birds.
Desch appears as a Legend.

Desch had lost his memory for quite some time until he visited the Tower of Owen with the Warriors of Light, and began remembering his true identity. He was none other than the son of Owen the Ancient, tasked with looking after the Tower of Owen in his father's absence. Upon the Tower's completion, he had been placed in cryogenic sleep, a state that caused his memories to deteriorate over time. Meant to only awaken if the Tower were ever in danger, he fulfilled his duty by sacrificing his life in order to stabilize it."

Desch begins regaining his memories when he joins the Warriors of Light in their quest to save the world. Once they reach the Tower of Owen, all of his memories come flooding back and he remembers that not only is he is an Ancient, but also the caretaker of the Tower.

Although many thought him dead after this feat, he actually survived to lend the Warriors of Light a hand when they needed it most."
