A young man who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. He is a lone orphan, adopted as a small child by the troupe of theatrical thieves known as Tantalus, and their leader, Baku. He was raised by Tantalus and considers the group his family, but even having such a home cannot erase his longing to discover his true roots. He has a bright and cheery disposition, and a strong sense of justice for a thief, but his womanizing tendencies keep the shine off of this diamond in the rough. The moment he spots a cute girl, he will pull out every trick in his bag to try to pick her up.

|3★||A young man who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. He is a lone orphan, adopted as a small child by the troupe of theatrical thieves known as Tantalus, and their leader, Baku. He was raised by Tantalus and considers the group his family, but even having such a home cannot erase his longing to discover his true roots. He has a bright and cheery disposition, and a strong sense of justice for a thief, but his womanizing tendencies keep the shine off of this diamond in the rough. The moment he spots a cute girl, he will pull out every trick in his bag to try to pick her up.|
|4★||A young man who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. He is a member of the Tantalus Theater Troupe, a band of traveling thieves who attempt to kidnap Princess Garnet of Alexandria. Finding himself captivated by Garnet, who is troubled by the changes in her beloved mother's behavior, he pledges himself to her cause. As they set out on a journey together with the young black mage Vivi and an Alexandrian knight named Steiner, he comes closer to the truth about the two moons in Gaia's night sky, and the roots he has searched for all his life.|
|5★||A young man who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. On a quest to help Princess Garnet of Alexandria save her kingdom, he learns of the existence of Terra, a foreign planet trying to take over Gaia and replace its people. Confronted with the knowledge that he is not, in fact, human, but a tool create by Terrans to take over Gaia, he is overwhelmed by a self-destructive despair. But the friends and allies who have traveled with him so long draw him from his shell and help him to accept himself as he is, lending him the courage he needs to fight his fate.|
|6★||A young man who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. Zidane grew up as a member of the Tantalus Theater Troupe without any knowledge of his past. It wasn't until he came across Kuja, a man bent on plunging the land into chaos, that he learned he had originally been sent to Gaia as part of the vanguard meant to raid the planet in the name of Terra. As he struggled with the sadness and desperation that came with this realization, his friends helped him get back on his feet and convinced him protect Gaia instead. He then swore to stop the rampage of the closest person he had to family, his older brother Kuja.|
