Vision Card Onward to the Disc

The chancellor of Niflheim in the faraway world of Eos who controls all mayhem from behind the scenes. It is impossible to ascertain his birthplace from his appearance, and with an aloof attitude and joking tone, he has others eating out of the palm of his hand. After usurping the Crystal from the capital, he hid his social status and often appeared in front of Noctis and the others by "coincidence." Hiding his true motive behind a friendly demeanor, he shrewdly guided Noctis and the others through some witty conversation.

Notes

Gameplay

Default Attack Changes

  • The passive ability Burning Passion for Vengeance permanently changes his default attack upon reaching the prerequisite unit level. This will override the unit from using a standard normal attack.

Trivia

  • Main antagonist of Final Fantasy XV.
  • In the Japanese version, this unit was released roughly 8 months after Keiji Fujiwara's passing last April 2020. The CG Limit Burst animation features some of the recorded battle quotes taken from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia where he was featured as a playable character in both games.
