Welcome to O'aka's!
Wantz is O'aka XXIII's younger brother in Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. He appears at seemingly random times in the game to take pictures of Yuna. At the Moonflow, he's seen being bullied by Biran and Yenke Ronso. Later on, Wantz takes over his brother's business as a merchant. According to the Final Fantasy X Ultimania Omega, Wantz is 22 years old during Final Fantasy X.
Wantz wears a green and yellow headband, a blue striped shirt, and yellow bandana tied around his waist, dark fingerless gloves, green baggy trousers, and red sandals. He has light skin and red hair. He also has a necklace, though the significance of this is never explained.
Wantz has a kind and friendly personality, and loves his brother and deceased sister dearly. He is overly helpful to Yuna and her guardians, selling them goods under threat of death by Yevon. He gladly takes O'aka's place selling items while O'aka is imprisoned.
Wantz and O'aka had a sister who was a summoner. She passed away approximately seven years before the events of Final Fantasy X. If the player revisits the Farplane in Guadosalam after Tidus says to party that Seymour went to Macalania Temple, they can find Wantz talking to her there. He shows her a sphere of Yuna and says that they look alike. He promises that Yuna will beat Sin for her.
During the Eternal Calm, O'aka and Wantz have a fight, and Wantz is kicked out of the family business for believing the Macalania Travel Agency would fail without the Temple. However, if the Gullwings complete all of O'aka's sidequests, he and Wantz will reunite at the Agency, although their feud doesn't seem to be over.
Final Fantasy XEdit
Wantz is notable for selling optimal equipment in the game, for both of his shops. The equipment with four empty slots in Macalania is especially vital for players who want to create weapons and armor with strong abilities. However, the appearance of Wantz on Mt. Gagazet is missable, and if the player does not speak to him on their first visit, then the young merchant will not appear in Macalania to sell the four-slotted equipments. After talking to Wantz on Gagazet, he will be found at the entrance to Macalania Woods from the Thunder Plains, after obtaining the Fahrenheit, and completing the mandatory visit to Bevelle.
