Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Summoned into the conflict by Materia, this prankster monarch is recruited by Mog in the Domina Wastelands. When a local chocobo informs Mog of an old man nearby, Bartz speculates that it could be Galuf, a suspicion reinforced when a manikin of him attacks. Galuf is found lying apparently unconscious in the Domina Wastelands. However, when Bartz and the others rush to help, it turns out that Galuf is simply asleep. Upon being greeted by Bartz, Galuf asks "Who are you? And... who am I?" as a joke before greeting Bartz happily. After the situation is explained, Galuf takes it in stride thanks to his experience traveling different planets.

Later, Galuf gathers with Shadow, Sazh, Laguna, Steiner, and Yang to have a relaxing conversation away from the more youthful party members. They discuss their family members left behind at home, and Galuf notes that Shadow has been mumbling about a daughter in his sleep. When Sazh turns the inquiries on Galuf, Galuf immediately feigns amnesia, to their exasperation.

In Act 2, Chapter 8: Whither the Wind Returns, Galuf and his commrades play a more prominent role. After Bartz had given his memories to his Dark Manikin, the team searches for Bartz's Dark Manikin to restore him. Soon, the party come across their own Dark Manikins and recovers their lost memories. For Galuf, he becomes aware of his future in his home world, and reassures his grandaughter that they hadn't have time to worry about him.

After recovering Bartz's brilliance back, Galuf and Bartz come into a discussion, knowing about their own futures in their home worlds. Galuf remarks to himself how Dorgann's son had grown well.

Spoilers end here.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Galuf's abilities are based on physical-effective jobs. His Cover originated from the Knight job, his Shirahadori (formerly named Blade Block) originated from the Samurai job, his Bladeblitz originated from the Gladiator job and Dual-Wield originated from the Ninja job.

Galuf's kit focuses on him protecting his allies. His Shirahadori gives him a PHY Evasion Upbuff, that allows him to evade against melee and ranged attacks done by foes.

His Soul of Dawn buff grants him a great increase in attack and physical and magic evasion, and also restores his HP while it is active.
