Story[edit | edit source]
A kind-hearted young lad. Childhood pal of Sol, the two have a friendly rivalry.
While traveling across the forest to the Checkpoint to welcome back Aigis, Glaive finds Sol watching an Avalonian airship fly over Lux and engages him a surprise sparring. After the fight, Diana joins the two with her and Glaive revealing they want to welcome Aigis back too. When they reach Lux, seeing Sol unknowingly hurts Diana's feelings, Glaive points out what he did while wrong, getting him to apologize to her. While infiltrating Castle Lux to find the reason for Aigis being called there, Glaive gets himself and his friends in through a passage way he knows.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Glaive begins with the ability Focus, meaning he can strengthen the power of his next used ability for up to three times. It takes up one ability slot. Glaive has high HP growth and his stats lean towards the physical side, benefiting jobs like Monk, Warrior, and later Dark Knight. However, since the stat differences between characters are minimal, and abilities and equipment are of greater importance, he can competently do any job. Jobs also gain stats boosts when they level up, which helps even out stats.
