King Walse is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy V. He is the King of Walse. Initially when Bartz Klauser and friends reach Walse and go talk with him in his castle, he is reluctant to turn his Water Crystal off because it provides his kingdom with its essentials.
Once a meteor lands near the Walse Tower north of his kingdom he takes the army and goes to the tower. Inside the tower, he is found injured in the fourth floor after he was attacked by a Garula possessed by Exdeath. After the party defeats the Garula in the crystal room, the crystal shatters. He escapes when the tower collapses and sinks into the ocean, and is bedridden in his chamber at Walse Castle.
