Me and my chocobo just go wherever the trail leads us...
~ Bartz Klauser


Bartz Klauser (known as Butz Klauser in the Japanese version, and Batz in Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals) is the main protagonist of Final Fantasy V. He is the son of one of the original Warriors of Dawn, Dorgann Klauser, and a woman named Stella. His mother died when he was young, and his father died three years before the game begins. On advice from his father, Bartz decided to wander the world.

Starting off as an average freelancer with his pet chocobo, until a meteorite hit a nearby area. He would end up saving the princess of Tycoon, Lenna, as well as team up with her and one of the Four previous heroes of light, Galuf, and embark on a journey to save the world from that point.
