Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Kytes is a young boy with short brown hair and dark blue/green eyes. In Final Fantasy XII he wears a green vest, and a ring pendant. He wears dark trousers and orange cloth wrapped around his waist. He carries a brown leather messenger bag with a blue buckle on the strap.
In Revenant Wings, Kytes has somewhat matured. He wears an orange shirt under a green robe with yellow-tipped frayed hem, brown shorts, a white scarf around his neck, and still has the same bag. He wears brown bands around his shins and ankles with brown and tan shoes.
Being both designed by Ryōma Itō, Kytes's design is similar to Montblanc's, including being both themed with green and orange, wearing brown pants, and, exclusive to Montblanc's artwork in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, equipping brown staves with tiny objects on it. They are both Black Mages.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Kytes is cautious in contrast to Filo's headstrong personality. He has a high opinion on Vaan, impressed that he killed many rats, believing that Vaan is already to take on stronger monsters. After Vaan is arrested, Kytes and the other orphans worry over him, and Kytes congratulates Vaan after he returns to Rabanastre, having escaped the Nalbina Dungeons. Kytes fears earthquakes, as revealed in a side mission against Hashmal in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings.
Story[edit | edit source]
Kytes shows up in Garamsythe Waterway to fetch Vaan for Migelo. Kytes is impressed how Vaan managed to kill so many rats and thinks Vaan may be ready to take on bigger monsters now. Kytes is off to do his chores and later Vaan finds him from the Sandsea, where Kytes introduces Vaan to the notice board, saying Vaan should be strong enough to take on the Rogue Tomato.
Later, Kytes congratulates Vaan after Vaan has escaped the Nalbina Dungeons. He stays in the Lowtown slums when Vaan embarks on his new adventure with the new friends he made from the heist on the palace. When Vaan is looking for medallion pieces, Kytes and Filo have found a woman who has discovered a fragment of the medallion needed to break Chaos's seal. Kytes tells Vaan where to find her.
An orphan living in Rabanastre's Lowtown, Kytes is one of Vaan's closest friends. Hoping to become a sky pirate himself, Kytes practices magick with single-minded determination.
Along with Filo, Kytes joins Vaan on his new adventure when a previously unexplored floating continent called the Lemurés is discovered. Vaan starts his own sky pirating group and Kytes is the first to join him, along with their friends Penelo and Filo.
