Germonique, also known as Germonik, is a notable person from the history of Ivalice in Final Fantasy Tactics. He was one of the disciples of the infamous Saint Ajora Glabados. Knowing the truth about Ajora, he betrayed him to the Holy Ydoran Empire, resulting in Ajora's death. Germonique is the author of the Scriptures of Germonique, which play an important role in the game.
It is implied by the words of the final boss ("In you... his blood, my vanquisher in times... long past" (War of the Lions), or "You're the descendant of the one who killed me before" (PS1)) that Ramza Beoulve is a descendant of Germonique. As an alternative, it could mean that they are very similar.
Germonique is mentioned as the inspiration for a religious sect, deemed a cult by greater Dalmascan religion, that worships Ultima, the High Seraph. The mainstream church deems him a traitor who killed Ajora, while the Sect of Germonique declare him the true savior.
- Germonique's character is similar to the Disciple Judas, who betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. However, Germonique's reasons for betraying Ajora were more noble.
- Germonique's name is similar to St. Jermone, who is known for translating the Scriptures into Latin.
