The fastest sky pirate in the world. He lives for justice and sails through the skies under a banner of freedom. Balthier is a sky pirate who pilots the airship Strahl, traveling the skies of the world as he pleases. He hates being fettered down, and shows no affiliation to any country or ruling power. Following his own moral code, he steals only from the corrupt - along with his partner, Fran, a female warrior from the Viera tribe.
Typically he is calm and collected, and always quick with a witty retort. But when it comes to his own past, he becomes quite heated and his composed exterior can shatter. Because of his own experiences he may be a bit hard on his younger allies, but he remains a strong pillar of emotional support to them.
Additionally, Balthier is highly physically capable, possessing both speed and power, and he is handy with guns or daggers. His friends depend on him for this, as he leads the team like a big brother looking out for his younger siblings.
