A natural born warrior who wields a gunblade on the field of battle. Stubborn to a fault, Squall can come off as brusque and standoffish, but there's no doubting his skill.
Squall is an event-recruitable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper. He could be unlocked in the Balamb Garden - The SeeDs of Conflict Challenge Event in the Master Room on Classic as the First Time Reward; or obtained by completing the Normal trial in the fifth phase of Forbidden Treasure. He could further be recruited via Gunblade of the Sorceress, Broken Chains, and Rains of Ruin.
Squall's stats are weighted toward a typical Knight, having above-average HP and Attack; his other stats are low-to-average across the board: Defense and Resistance need to be offset with armor. He has the potential to be a power unit with his Soul Break skills, which are complemented by a broad skillset that positions him as a low-level Red Mage as well as a competent Spellblade.

Squall can use Black Magic abilities up to rarity rank 2, White Magic abilities up to rarity rank 3, Spellblade abilities up to rarity rank 5, Combat abilities up to rarity rank 5, Celerity abilities up to rarity rank 3.
His initial Soul Break is Blade Flurry, which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals three successive attacks to random targets, each hit equal to 60% damage potency of a conventional attack, totaling to 180% damage potency. The sword Revolver (VIII) allows Squall to use Rough Divide which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment unleashes a powerful attack on one target which deals damage equal to 480% damage potency of a conventional attack. The sword Shear Trigger (VIII) allows Squall to use Fated Circle which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals three random single target attacks, followed by one attack on all targets, each hit equal to 85% damage potency of a conventional attack, totaling to 205% damage potency with an additional 85% damage potency hit which hits all enemies. The sword Cutting Trigger (VIII) allows Squall to use Blasting Zone which at the cost of one Soul Gauge segment deals four consecutive physical attacks to one target, and upon mastery raises Squall's Attack by 10 points.
After Squall's level cap is increased he automatically gains the Record Materia, Composure, which when equipped allows the user to deal more damage when using Attack but at the cost of filling the Soul Gauge at a slower pace. His second Record Materia, Gunblade, sometimes increases the damage of attacks, mimicking the trigger effect from Final Fantasy 8, while his third Record Materia, Lionheart, increases how much soul gauge is filled from taking damage.
Squall can equip the following weapon types: daggers and swords. The swords Revolver (VIII), Shear Trigger (VIII), and Cutting Trigger (VIII) allow Squall to use Rough Divide, Fated Circle, and Blasting Zone, respectively.
He can equip accessories.
