Zidane Tribal

Age: 16
Occupation: Thief
Skills: Steal, Thief
Weapon: Dagger

"You don't need a reason to help people."

A member of the Tantalus Band, a combination thieves' guild and acting troupe, Zidane has a kind heart. Very much the ladies' man (or at least wishing he was), he makes it his business to both flirt with and protect Princess Garnet. Zidane is physically a rather powerful character, and so he does well in the front row. His Thief's skills range from the merely helpful to the incredibly useful.
