Artwork from Revenant Wings.

Balthier is a protagonist to some extent in the Final Fantasy series, making his debut in the PlayStation 2 video game Final Fantasy XII, and later appearing on the Nintendo DS sequel Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, where he played a smaller role. While Vaan is undisputably the leading character of both games, Balthier will oftentimes beg to differ, assuming that he's the leading man.
