I've got me a nose for ill intent. I'll take the measure of 'im.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Raz is a tiny bangaa, and he can always be seen with a parrot on his head. He is the smaller bangaa seen in all of Ivalice games. In Revenant Wings he flies on a little hover-board depicted with tiny angel wings.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Raz is loyal to his leader, and considers himself one of the fastest people in Ivalice.
Story[edit | edit source]
The party encounters Raz at Balfonheim Port after talking to Reddas. He is with Rikken and Elza just outside Reddas's manse. Claiming to be a good judge of character, Raz inspects the party, and claims that they measure up to his expectations. Elza remarks about how Raz could barely measure anything, given his height, but this does not faze Raz.
After the party returns from the Pharos, Raz is surprised to hear of Reddas's death. When Elza says that Reddas had intended to die all along, Raz does not accept it. Elza asks if Raz would like to upset Reddas for all eternity by worrying, which makes Raz change his tone. He wishes his late master peace in the afterlife.
Rikken, Elza, and Raz return and encounter the party over several islands of Lemurés.
Quests[edit | edit source]
Racing[edit | edit source]
Vaan can challenge Rikken, Elza, and Raz for a foot race through the streets of Balfonheim any time after meeting them. There are 100 different races, and winning them yields various curative items and gil.
Raz is the fastest of the three, but he trips a lot, causing him to almost always lose the first races. Beyond the 40th level Raz no longer trips on his own (apart for one fall at the beginning) and Vaan has to prompt it by intercepting Raz's trajectory or approaching him from the side. If the player fails to stop him, Raz will win the race.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
Raz appears with a water-elemental card depicting his Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings artwork.
