Story Edit

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

Originally, Vata was of a village destroyed by the Avalon Empire when its soldiers raided it for a crystal. The sole survivor, Vata joined the army's ranks to raise up to a position to exact revenge on the Emperor. With such a chance out of his grasp as he could not be promoted beyond his current rank, Vata lost hope in his village being avenged until he met Sol and his friends while they help Barbara rescue her dragon Ceres. Though he succeeds in obtaining the fragment of Deist's crystal, Vata falls back without obtaining the rest.

He later confronts Sol and his party, guarding the elevator to the Heliogabalus. He flees after a fight and seeing that they have Argy on their side.

He appears again on Mt Wells, where he warns the party of the coming of the four Divine Generals before fleeing.

The party once again encounters him on the Heliogabalus after it attacks Mysidia. He appears to be defeated by the party but reappears before the Heliogabalus goes down and helps the party escape by showing them that they can jump to Lugae's ship as dragoons. He then reveals that he's the one who helped them by destroying the engine before teleporting away.

After the worlds of Light and Darkness have merged, he appears before the party in Mysidia to tell them that the Emperor is harvesting dark matter and that the other generals have been resurrected in corrupted forms.

Later, in Castle Avalon, he tells the party of Imperio and Gehenna, the two remaining Divine Generals, before once more departing.

He issues another warning to the party in The Void, where he tells them someone will make the ultimate sacrifice if they continue further. When asked if he's an enemy or ally, he responds that he's certainly "someone's" enemy.

When the world is about to be engulfed by the Dark Flow, Vata sacrifices himself by merging with it, giving it a form that can be destroyed. As the party is forced to kill him he tells them of his past.
