Duane and Katarin are both sixteen. Ah, what a magical age! The springtime of love...
Duane and Katarin are lovesick teenagers from Mobliz. In the World of Balance, they fall in love, and will not say a word to the party. In the World of Ruin, they are the oldest survivors when Kefka attacks Mobliz with his Light of Judgment.
Terra stays in Mobliz begins to take care of the younger children. About this time, Katarin becomes pregnant, and does not know what to do, but Terra helps her. When Terra rejoins the party after the defeat of Humbaba, Duane and Katarin resolve their differences. After Kefka has been felled, Katarin gives birth.
- In the Dawn of Souls and subsequent remakes of the original Final Fantasy, Duane is one of the automatic names the player can choose for the Red Mage Job.
- Hironobu Sakaguchi had high hopes for the scene where Katarin was giving birth, as he had just had a child himself.
