Story[edit | edit source]
Summoned into the conflict by Materia, this polite and protective monk is recruited by Mog at the Snowy Peaks of Crudelis. Although Cecil recognizes him and attempts to greet him as a friend, Yang is under the control of Kefka and attacks the party. Defeating him brings him back to his senses. Yang is ashamed of having been made to fight his friends, but Terra, who had also been controlled, assures him that it wasn't his fault and that he can make up for it by joining them to close the Torsions.
