FF5Crystal Behold! This article has been chosen as the Featured Article of February 15th, 2012!
Even so, if you wish to improve the article, do not hesitate! You can also nominate your favorite articles to be featured here!

From the article:
"Due to the fact that women were not respected among them, she was raised as a boy and dressed accordingly in order to be accepted by them."
When asked why she kept her gender a secret, she responded with "Well, would YOU want to be the only girl on a ship full of pirates?" I could be wrong, but I think she kept it a secret for her own safety and not so much anything else. But then again, I'm only in the beginning of the game, what do I know? --Hecko X 23:31, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

You playin' FFV now? Good for you! I don't remember what exactly was said. Crazyswordsman 23:33, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
Just got the Advance version a couple of hours ago ^_^ And that is what she said, I can screen it if needed. --Hecko X 23:35, 24 December 2006 (UTC)
If that's what the Advance version says, sure. I was going of the RPGe translation and Shinryuu's Lair, mostly. (I still need to get FFVA. ;_;) Eowynjedi 04:08, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
I think it would be safer to go with either the PS or GBA versions of FFV, as they were officially translated. Then just use the RPGe translations as redirects, e.g. Worse Castle redirects to Walse Castle. --Hecko X 11:15, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


warrior Edit

It is written "one of the Warriors of Dawn who fought Exdeath". I think it should be "one of the Warriors of Light" 18:15, 12 June 2008 (UTC)Guest

Where in the game does it say Scherwiz is her last name? Isn't it Tycoon Cloudofdarkness ^_^

Her firsnt name isn't Faris as well, it's Sarisa. - Henryacores 18:51, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Ultimania (or equivalent) thing, I'd pressume. They don't mention surnames in the earlier games... to my knowledge.  ILHI 18:53, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Syldra...not a boy. Edit

Syldra is a girl, according to FFV Advance. Here are quotes from the game:

"Krile: Syldra's your name? Oh, you're such a good girl...

Faris: Krile! You can see her?"

I think certain words in this article (like "he" and "brotherly") should be changed to reflect this.Final Aeon 20:46, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh but of course. If that's the case, then we should change it. I wonder why you removed your comment, though... Did you find something that disproved your own argument? --BlueHighwind 13:54, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
No, I'm pretty sure my findings were correct but I wanted to change my comment so it looked...better (for lack of a better word). I'm still pretty new to the wiki thing so...Final Aeon 20:46, 15 April 2009 (UTC)


''Faris is the first character of the "strong, serious female" archetype, something that continued on with Celes, Tifa, Quistis, Freya, Lulu, Fran, and Fang.

Is this really a necessary bit of information? It's up to the player to decide what female characters are strong and which ones aren't. That besides, given the personalities of the female characters mentioned here, shouldn't Beatrix, Ashe and Lightening be on this list?

Agreed - however, a signature would be nice :) Haveanicedays 03:18, June 12, 2011 (UTC)

Improvement suggestion Edit

Maybe a battle section would be called for to house the numerous Job sprites. It can be handled much the same way that the dressphere images are handled in Paine, Yuna and Rikku's pages. Just a thought. Netherith 09:00, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

Intro quote Edit

Yes, Faris' actual gender is well-known, but we still use spoiler tags and the article still makes an effort to avoid referring to her by her gender in the intro (note the deliberate lack of "he" or "she" until after the spoiler tag). Yet we then use a quote where she says she doesn't want to be a princess. Isn't that a little inconsistent? I'd change the quote, but I'm not sure what people feel would be a better one. Dazuro 04:21, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm. Another thing, the personality and appearance section should be before the story section, right? That's the format for other character articles.Keltainentoukokuu 04:27, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
Not sure about a good quote, but, yes, IIRC, appearance/personality goes before story. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 04:38, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

"Scherwil"? Edit

While this would certainly tie into her assumed surname, where did it come from? Last I'd seen, "Highwind" was thrown around as her middle name. For sake of confirmation, could a scan be provided, if from an Ultimania (I really ought to try nabbing a copy of Character)? TJF588 (talk) 07:06, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

As you suspect, the 20th Anniversary Ultimania does list her name, in English, as Sarisa Scherwil Tycoon (on page 130, if any cares to fact check). You may be thinking of her father, King Tycoon, who's full name is Alexander Highwind Tycoon.Espritduo (talk)

Sources Edit

Does anyone know where I can find sources that touch upon the stuff mentioned in her character design section (such as her origin as a gambler)? - 1bryn (talk) 21:46, August 26, 2019 (UTC)

Well the paragraph says the sources, but Setzer's article also links to this.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 02:24, August 27, 2019 (UTC)
