A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. He lost his elder brother in the war with the Archadian Empire and was left alone in the world. He lives in the slums of the Royal City of Rabanastre, the capital of Dalmasca, and makes ends meet by doing odd jobs for a shopkeeper named Migelo—and by stealing from the Archadians who occupy the city. Though he hates the empire, which took both his brother and his homeland from him, it is not enough to inspire him to any greater action. He drifts through his days with only vague dreams of becoming a sky pirate to keep him moving.

|4★||A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. He lost his elder brother, his only family left in the world, during the war with the Archadian Empire. The desire for vengeance within him remains nebulous, channeled into nothing more than petty thieving. He decides to sneak into the Archadian-occupied palace to "take back" some of the Dalmascan wealth that the Archadian forces have seized. This is how he meets Ashe, the crown princess of his fallen country, and the sky pirate Balthier. This is how his journey with them begins.|
|5★||A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. After meeting the princess of his fallen homeland, he began a journey to Dalmasca of its occupiers. It took a long time for him to accept the death of his brother, who was painted as a traitor after dying in service to their homeland. But by coming to know Basch, a knight also entangled in the plots surrounding his brother, and making a connection with Ashe, who has similarly lost so many she loved, he finally learns to move onward to the future.|
|6★||A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. Vaan lost his brother to the war against the Archadian Empire, and came to resent both Dalmasca and Captain Basch as a result. Consumed by his emotions, his loathing for them grew day by day until his travels with Princess Ashe and the sky pirate Balthier helped him grow as a person. Now he is finally able to see past his brother's untimely death, and has learned to take his future more seriously.|
|3★||It's not like I want to live this way...|
I want to do something more than this.
|4★||I'll steal some treasure and treat everyone|
to a real meal for once!
|5★||Someday I'll be the fastest pirate in the skies.|
We'll see who's the leading man then!
|6★||I couldn't have imagined that|
I would come this far.
I feel I have changed.
|4★||One step closer to being a real sky pirate!|
All I need now is my own airship...
|5★||I was always running away...|
But not anymore. Now, I'm looking forward toward the
|6★||I will no longer run away from|
the death of my brother.
I need to find a goal for myself.
|3★||If something's stolen from me, I'll steal it back!|
Simple enough, don't you think?
|4★||I'm Captain Basch fon Rosenburg of Dalmasca!|
...Pretty convincing, don't you think?
|5★||I'm coming with you. I'm betting a great|
adventure awaits us!
I'm sure I'll find it if I go with you,
what it is I should do from now on.
|I'll fight with you until the end.|
We came this far together.
We'll finish this far together, too!
- Main protagonist of Final Fantasy XII despite that most of the game's plot is not directed to him. His protagonist role is better fulfilled in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings.
- Vaan has a variation: Seeker of Freedom Vaan.
