Kelger Vlondett, originally romanized as Kelgar, and known as Kelga in the Anthology translation is a non-player character in Final Fantasy V. Kelger is a Warrior of Dawn.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Kelger is an anthropomorphic lupine, appearing closely to a typical depiction of a werewolf. In his official artwork and portrait by Yoshitaka Amano, his fur is in shades of grey, but his in-game sprite depicts him as having fur in a light shade of brown. He wears a gold headpiece with a protruding horn behind his ears. He wears a full-body armor and a yellow cape.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Kelger is initially distrustful of Bartz, Lenna, and Faris, and asks Bartz to mettle with him to prove his worth. Kelger is loyal to his friends however, and when he learns Bartz is the son of his old acquaintance, he accepts the party with open arms.

Story[edit | edit source]

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

Kelger a Warrior of Dawn along with Galuf, Dorgann, and Xezat. The Dawn Warriors sealed the supernatural warlock Exdeath in a cave thirty years ago. He is a werewolf and, like all of his race, hails from the town of Quelb, where he is leader. Galuf, along with Bartz, Lenna, and Faris, visit the town and Kelger challenges Bartz to a fight, believing him to work for Exdeath, who has now been freed.

Kelger initiates his "Lupine Attack" (known as Pine Attack in the Anthology translations), but is defeated by a powerful blow that sends him through a door. While recovering, Kelger learns Bartz is Dorgann's son, and the party's real motives for coming to Quelb, and grants them passage to Drakenvale to the north. Later, when the party is in Castle Exdeath, already weak and dying, Kelger sacrifices his life energy so the party can see through the illusion spell cast up by Exdeath. He is the last of the Warriors of Dawn to die.

When the party is sent to the Void, Kelger's spirit, among those of the other Dawn Warriors and King Tycoon, appear to help the Light Warriors.

Spoilers end here.
