FFII Character Profiles

From old Japanese gaming books you've never heard of! Yes, these profiles appeared in a pair of books (RPG Fuuunroku - Record of RPG Elements and RPG Jinmeiroku - RPG Directory) back in the late 80's. While they don't really add too much to the game, they are interesting tidbits of information nonetheless. I sepated the characters into two groups (Playable and NPC) just to break it up a bit. All info is under the cut

Playable Characters

Firion has the only odd profile. Everyone else either fits into one of two formats.

*He is also listed as Leo/O. No, I don't know why they couldn't decide on one.
**According to the novel, he was born in Salamand and was adopted by Maria and Leon's parents after his own died.
