Ah, forgive me sir. I meant to say 'pardon me', but it came out in Al Bhed.

Rin upon stumbling into Tidus

Rin is an Al Bhed merchant and entrepreneur who runs the various travel agency chapters across Spira in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. He persuades Tidus to learn the Al Bhed language. Rin is a player of blitzball and the player can recruit him to their team in Final Fantasy X. According to the Final Fantasy X Ultimania Omega, he is 35 years old during Final Fantasy X.

Profile Edit

Appearance Edit

Rin has long blond hair, held from falling over his face by his goggles propped up on his forehead. He wears a pale yellow open jacket with nothing underneath, and dark blitzball player's trousers and orange boots.

Personality Edit

Rin is always thinking of business and starts various entrepreneurial endeavors. He has a darker side in terms of viewing machina powered the Farplane energy as the future of Spira, as he reveals if Yuna points him as the one behind the Mi'ihen Highroad machina attack in Final Fantasy X-2. In the aftermath of Final Fantasy X-2, Rin gets Shinra to be part of his big project.

Story Edit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Final Fantasy X Edit

Rin Mi'ihen

Rin in front of his travel agency, Mi'ihen Highroad branch.

Rin discovered Auron ten years ago when he had been injured by Yunalesca, and offered him a place to stay for the night at the Calm Lands travel agency. By the morning Auron had already moved on. Yuna's party runs into Rin along their pilgrimage when they need to stay in Rin's travel agencies, and Rin takes an interest in Yuna's newest guardian, Tidus, encouraging him to learn the Al Bhed language. After Home's destruction, Rin is evacuated on board the Fahrenheit with his fellow brethren and declares to use the money from his business to fund Home's rebuilding.

Final Fantasy X-2 Edit

By the Eternal Calm, Rin redirects his funding to build "his own home". Taking advantage of the entertainment field, Rin creates Sphere Break, as a source of entertainment in Spira during the blitzball off-season, offering a dressphere as the prize. When strange things start happening on the Mi'ihen Highroad, Rin hires Yuna, Rikku, and Paine to investigate the Mi'ihen Highroad Mystery and find the culprit. The mystery can have five possible culprits: the Chocobo Eater, Rikku, Calli, the Prophet, and Rin himself.

Spoilers end here.

Gameplay Edit

Al Bhed PrimersEdit

In Final Fantasy X, Rin takes an interest in Tidus's study of the Al Bhed language, at one point offering him an Al Bhed Primer if Tidus tells him his studies are going well. Once Tidus has found all 26 primers and mastered Al Bhed, Rin will be so pleased over being able to hold a conversation with Tidus in Al Bhed that he will reward him with 99 Underdog's Secrets.

Blitzball Edit

The player can recruit Rin to their team. Rin's best attributes are his PA, EN, and, after gaining sufficient experience, BL. His ideal position would be a midfielder.
