Character Profiles

At the forefront of a rising tide of violence brought on by Galbadia's war declaration is a SeeD cadet named Squall Leonhart. Serious to a fault, Squall has earned himself the reputation of being a lone wolf. A chance encounter with the free-spirited Rinoa Heartilly, however, turns his universe upside down. Having thrived on discipline, Squall finds Rinoa's carefree attitude fascinating. Yet there is no time to ponder these thoughts, for the job of dealing with the sorceress behind Galbadia's irrational hostility has fallen to SeeD and Squall.

Squall Leonhart
Squall uses a sword called the Gunblade. This rare weapon takes many, many years to master and is therefore rarely used. Currently, there is only one other Gunblade user in Balamb Garden-Seifer Almasy. With the Gunblade, Squall can unleash his special skill, Renzokuken, a deadly series of punishing attacks sometimes followed by a powerful ending move. In the eyes of others, Squall is seen as a silent, cold person. Having this perceived image is fine by him.

Rinoa Heartilly
A member of the Timber resistance group "Forest Owls," Rinoa fights against the Galbadian President, Vinzer Deling, whose dictatorship has caused great suffering in her homeland for far too long.

Quistis Trepe
The whip is Quistis' weapon of choice, but when faced with a dangerous situation, she relies more upon Blue Magic. Quistis is much admired in Balamb Garden, and her admirers have even formed a fan club known as the "Trepies." She's a bit of a child prodigy considering she's the youngest instructor at the Garden. However, her actions toward her students sometimes betray her age and undermine her authority, as she lacks the stern demeanor of most Garden staff.

Zell Dincht
Zell, a master of close-combat fighting skills, uses kicks and punches to defeat his enemies. Zell also has a great passion for the hot dogs that are sold in Balamb Garden's cafeteria. Never one to cause problems to others, Zell's abundant energy, wild temper, and reactionary style sometimes get him into trouble. People in his hometown of Balamb view him as a "comic-bookish" type of hero, or a klutzy, poorly behaved person.

Irvine Kinneas
Irvine is touted as an expert marksman who can use special ammo to attack enemies.

Very little is known about Edea, other than the fact that she has inherited the Sorceress Power at some point in her life. She only recently appeared for the first time, and seems to be working with Vinzer Deling, the Galbadian President. Her true intentions are unclear, but it seems unlikely that she will bring peace to the warring nation of Galbadia.
