Seeing Gaol die horribly before his very eyes, Lini took his sword into the Eluut Sands to await the one worthy to wield it.

The Hero Gaol, Epilogue

Lini, a moogle, is one of six special recruits in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.


Lini has a 1-in-5 chance of joining the clan after completion of a mission where The Hero Gaol is equipped. The Hero Gaol is a reward for "#062 Oasis Frogs", which itself is unlocked after "#005 Twisted Flow", but can only be completed after "#006 Antilaws" due to an automatic engagement in Cadoan.


Like all secret characters, Lini joins four levels above the average of the entire clan. Lini is recruited as a Mog Knight, and as a bonus he has two abilities already mastered: Mog Guard and Ultima Charge.


Mog Knight command. Use momentum to deal damage.

Skill Effect MP
Mog Guard Raise Defense and Resistance for one turn.
Ultima Charge Triple Damage Attack. 60


In Sudanese, "Lini" means "Earthquake".


  • Lini was the name of the sidekick of Gaol, a legendary hero on which Missions #032 through #035 were based. The special recruit could either be a moogle named after the original Lini, or, based on what Mission "#036 Twin Swords" states, could be the original Lini returned from the dead.
