Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Gabranth's default costume is "Judge Magister", updated from his main appearance in both Final Fantasy XII and previous Dissidia games. His suit of armor has been updated, featuring more accentuation of his ornate markings and metallic luster. Because of the reworking of EX Skill, Gabranth's aggressive fighting style in EX Mode, along with his helmet, are retained throughout battle, though taking a certain amount of damage will greatly fracture the helmet or completely remove it. His first alternate coloration resembles that of fellow Judge Magister Ghis, coloring his armor bronze with a red cape. His second alternate coloration has black armor with the ornate patterns white and his cape purple.
Gabranth's first alternate costume, "False General", is an updated version of his second alternate costume in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. The now darker metal armor has added luster along with his leather clothing. His alternate coloration resembles the early concept art of his brother, Basch, the upper armor being red with black accents. His second alternate coloration resembles that of regular Archadian soldiers, coloring his armor blue and silver.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Gabranth maintains his personality from Final Fantasy XII with the word "hatred" being a big part of his vocabulary.
Equipment[edit | edit source]
Gabranth brandishes dual-bladed swords, which he can freely disconnect at the hilt to wield as two separate weapons, the signature style of the Archadian Judges. He mainly dual-wields, but reconnects his weapons in several of his attacks.
His default weapons are the Highway Star & Chaos Blade, wielded by him in Final Fantasy XII. His first alternate weapons, Daybreak & Twilight, are Judge Ghis's weapons; golden in color, the primary sword is a large blade while the smaller sword is a spiked fan that has a half arch crescent guard and a long protruding blade with a series of trailing blades that follow down the guard. His second alternate weapons, called Triumph & Imperial Ensign, are Judge Bergan's weapons; the blades are rectangular and feature additional spikes at the edges of the blades. His third alternate weapons, Mace of Themis & Redemption, are Judge Drace's weapons; a dual-headed club with a longer, larger head on one end, and both themed in an enigmatic arthropod-like design, sporting the apparent preserved and possibly reinforced bodies of insect-based monsters with some limbs and anatomy jutting out metal blades.
All of Gabranth's weapons appear in Final Fantasy XII and its updated Zodiac versions as the weapons of the Judge Magisters, although the alternate weapons did not have names until the Dissidia series. Both their naming and design reflect their owner's personalities.
