A muscle-bound monk and leader of the kingdom of Fabul who accompanies Cecil on his quest to protect the crystals. His strict discipline and unyielding spirit has gotten his allies out of trouble on countless occasions. He cowers before no one─with the exception of his beloved wife.
Yang is shirtless, with red bands on his wrists, red pants tied at the ankle, a yellow sash around his waist, and flat brown shoes. He also wears red earrings, and has a red tattoo on his left shoulder.
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.
