I was just going by the book that came with my game which says she's 17 --Thai420Talk to me! 18:24, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

That's weird, since in Revenant Wings, a year has passed since the beginning of FFXII, and she's 17 in that. --Hecko X 19:22, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah you would figure that kind of stuff would be accurate but the books have been wrong before, maybe it's in the translation. --Thai420Talk to me! 17:57, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Can numbers be lost in translation?[edit source]

I can see from the above discussion that I'm not the first to notice this.
This confussed me when I first got my American copy of XII. I looked through the instruction manual and it said she was 17. This didn't sound right, I thought she was 16. So I get out my Japanese copy, check out the instruction manual, and sure enough, the Japanese manual says she's 16. Now, why Square made her a year older is beyond me. It's not like she gets into anything raunchy, and she's dressed very modestly. I can just tell that this is eventually going to come round and bite Square in the ass.
Here's a picture of my two instruction manuals beside each other, in case you want proof: [1]
Sorry about the size. Any smaller, and the 16 would be impossible to make out, any bigger and it would take up too much space.
And just so I know, which age should I put down for her profile? 16, 17, or 16/17? Diablocon 14:28, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Wow. She's two different ages? I never thought there was an actual point to this character anyway, heh. --Crazyswordsman 15:33, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
I'm guessing it's a misstype. I mean... 7 is right next to 6 on a keyboard. --Hecko X 16:42, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Possible. I guess we'll have to wait for an English release of Revenant Wings to make totally sure. Diablocon 16:44, 2 February 2007 (UTC)

Wait... isn't Revenant Wings a prequel?[edit source]

Because Panelo's RW outfit is seen in the ending. --Crazyswordsman 19:18, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Erm, no, Revenant Wings is set a year after XII. She is seen wearing her RW costume at the end of XII, which is also set a year after the main events of the game. Maybe I was being a little vague when I wrote that Revenant Wings part? Diablocon 19:22, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
Whatever. She still looks as pointless as ever. Still the most pointless character Square invented outside of Umaro and characters in FFVIII. --Crazyswordsman 07:00, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Where the hell does it say Panelo's a dancer?[edit source]

People! if you don't like Final Fantasy XII then why bother contributing here? She IS a dancer since Square Enix said so. I'll put up 'but is not mentioned' or 'portrayed in this game' if you want. I am going to put that right back into this article. Don't like it? Tough. None of you own this website. Its for everyone. Blueknightex 03:20, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Dude, chill. Your edit was reverted because there was no source. Provide a reliable source, it can stay. But to call her a dancer on assumptions when it never comes up in-game isn't how we do stuff here. Bluestarultor Best-of Stellar Arena sigicon.png BSA 03:26, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
(I'm gone too long if I forgot how to do talk bubbles.) Anyway, THAT and this conversation took place three years ago. wee187 03:38, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Yup. Found one. Turns out she has 'dreams' of becoming a dancer and she learned a bit of martial arts/self combat from her older brother who were soldiers. It seems that at the end of Final Fantasy XII she finally becomes one and hence the change of clothes. Blueknightex 08:57, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Penelo wasn't kidnapped after going to the mines[edit source]

As far as I remember, and from watching the cutscenes in order, Penelo was kidnapped by Ba'Gamnan in Rabanastre after they saw Balthier give her the handkerchief. They then took her to Bhujerba to lure Balthier there...

The entry here says that she went to the mines to look for nethicite (?!) before she even knows what it is yet, and that she was arrested (?!) but was in fact kidnapped by the headhunters.

Somebody want to dispute this? Exdevlin 23:01, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I shall. Penelo was kidnapped from Rabanastre. Indeed, if not, Migelo would not have found the note telling him Penelo was kidnapped. Bluer 10:22, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Why the hell is everyone calling her 'Panelo'?![edit source]

Last time I checked, her name was Penelo, not Panelo. Are you guys just bashing on her cause she's supposedly worthless?

Only CSM calls her Panelo. Everyone else just calls her Penelo. We arne't sure why he calls her that. Diablocon 00:38, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
Its because he hates her. I think the idea is PAN-elo, though I can't say I ever really understood Crazyswords's sense of humor. --BlueHighwind 00:59, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Penelo's personality?[edit source]

Why is it so that every character of every game has some info of the character's personality, while Penelo doesn't? She does have a personality, so someone should write about it and put in on the wikia! ^^


If you see something missing you could get it started. People are more likely to expand on something already-existing than add something completely new.Keltainentoukokuu 18:09, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Penelo's Cooking[edit source]

Does anybody remember which character actually liked the food that Penelo made on the Galbana? I can't remember if it was the winged people or Larsa. AmbieSushi To think that mother would prefer Sephiroth over... 18:33, September 16, 2011 (UTC)

Penelo is a user template[edit source]

Penelo in FFTA2[edit source]

She can access viera Jobs, except for Summoner.


...and how can this be? In my game, she can access every viera job. -- Dissicon ff9 Kuj4.png Flüstergras 21:57, June 3, 2013 (UTC)

That seems to be a mistake. Nowhere else on the internets does it say she couldn't be a summoner.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 23:11, June 3, 2013 (UTC)
