A young man who appears in the tales of holy stones known as auracite in the distant world of Ivalice. Ramza is a mysterious warrior who left many questions unanswered, after his untimely death, regarding his role in the War of Lions, and his actions as a heretic. Born the third and last son of the noble house of Beoulve, he strove to uphold his family name by becoming a knight alongside his childhood friend Delita, eventually joining the Gariland Royal Military Akademy with him. However, when compared to his two half brothers who were already knights, he never considered himself worthy of the house name.Ramza (5★) description

Ramza is one of the oldest 5★ base rarity units in the game for the support role. As such many of his moves are initially very weak for present time, however, they can be enhanced for great results. His Hero's Rhyme becomes a very powerful buff ability for the party, boosting stats by 100%, that along his Break moves that get a tremendous boost of 60% and a long turn duration allow him an adequate rotation of Breaks and buffs. His 7★ expands this with additional Break abilities, the ability to use them twice per turn and even grant an HP barrier to all allies, making him a versatile and useful support unit.
Mercenary Ramza serves as a Physical Damage, Tank and Support unit, the latter two being his primary functions. Initially he doesn't have much power in any role having rather weak Breaks and only a passive Cover for Tanking. His enhancements, fix all of these flaws, granting him a powerful Provoke in Stone Throw, an ATK/MAG Break on Blade of Justice and far more powerful and durable breakers on Weapon Break and Mind Break (provided they are used right after the enhanced Blade of Justice) allowing an effective turn rotation or provoking, and breaking, eventually having his provoke and both breaks set. He's also immune to all status ailments, and his enhances grant him resistance to Charm, elemental resistances and a no small amount of HP, ATK, DEF and SPR bonuses, essential for his roles. His 7★ grants him the ability to function as a Cover Tank both Physical and Magical, although only through Cooldown abilities, so if Mercenary Ramza were KO'd he could not reapply said Cover immediately. He also becomes a Fire Physical Chainer and can perfect chain with 7★ Knight Delita. Making him a powerful and slot efficient unit.
