Scott is a character from Final Fantasy II. He is a prince of Kashuan and the elder brother of Gordon. He first appeared as a minor character, but in Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Scott appears as a playable character during the Soul of Rebirth sidequest.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Scott has a long blond hair tied in a ponytail. He wears a red coat, a green cape, beige pants, and brown shoes. He wears golden shoulder pads and a leather belt with a silver belt buckle around his waist, and below it has tied a purple scarf. His rapier has a golden rose near the hilt. His ultimate weapon in Soul of Rebirth is named the Wild Rose; this is also the name of Firion's ultimate weapon in Dissidia Final Fantasy.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Scott is in love with Princess Hilda and is willing to defend the kingdom with his life.
Story[edit | edit source]
The alliance between his kingdom and Fynn, along with his feelings for Princess Hilda, lead Scott to defend Fynn Castle during the Empire's siege. He dies shortly after the attack, though not before telling Firion about Borghen's treason. He gives the party the Map Ring just prior to his death and asks Firion to tell Hilda his feelings for her, though he reconsiders, not wanting her to grieve, leading to Hilda never learning the truth about his feelings towards her.
In Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls, Scott appears in the Unknown Cave facing off against undead members of the Palamecian Army, which he had already killed in the first place. With the aid of Minwu, he defeats the monsters. Scott himself journeys with Minwu, trying to find the reason why they have arrived to such an inhospitable place. Eventually, Scott and Minwu meet with Ricard Highwind and Josef.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
As Scott is not playable in the main game, his stats in Soul of Rebirth will always be the same. Scott is similar to a Red Mage, having all-around decent stats. He joins knowing several moderately-leveled basic spells and is proficient with all weapons to at least Level 2, with higher levels in shields and swords. He has high Magic and Stamina and thus his stats will grow quickly. His initial equipment consists of a Mythril Sword and a full set of Mythril armor.
Because Minwu has healing and buffing spells covered, and Josef and Ricard have more skill as physical attackers, training Scott with Black Magic is a good idea, especially since he begins knowing several spells already and can immediately begin training to raise his MP and Intelligence with them. If the player chooses to focus Scott in magic, purchasing a Flare Tome in the Unknown Cave is a good idea to teach him the spell. His ultimate weapon is the Wild Rose sword, which boosts his Strength and Intelligence to reinforce his versatility as a fighter or mage-type character.
