Lenna meets King Walse.

King Walse is a minor non-playable character in Final Fantasy V. Ruling over Walse, King Walse takes advantage of the water crystal amplification device.

The amplification device built by Cid Previa[1] provided Walse with purified water that kept it safe from monsters.[2] As such, when Lenna Charlotte Tycoon asked that King Walse deactivate the device due to worries it could shatter the water crystal, King Walse vehemently denied her request, believing there was insufficient evidence that the crystal would shatter.[3]

When a meteorite landed near the Walse Tower, King Walse sent his army, as well as Lenna and the Light Warriors, to investigate.[3] Inside, King Walse was injured on the fourth floor, attacked by Garula.[4] After the Light Warriors defeated the Garula in the crystal room, the crystal shattered, and the tower collapsed. King Walse was bedridden in his chamber at Castle Walse thereafter, and lamented his failure to heed Princess Lenna's warnings, urging the Light Warriors to go to Karnak and save the fire crystal.[5]
