A young black mage from the distant world of Gaia. While attending a play in the kingdom of Alexandria, he is swept up in Zidane's plot to kidnap Princess Garnet, and before long joins in on his new companions' quest. Raised with no knowledge of the world or his own origins, he is at first timid and dependent on others, but in the course of his journey gradually gains the courage to face the truth of the past.

He originally could awaken only up to 4★, but received new forms for the Final Fantasy IX event Alexandria Castle (along with Garnet and Kuja). He has no innate element or status ailment resistances. His Trust Master reward is the Level 6 Black Magic spell Firaga.
