Firion is the main protagonist of Final Fantasy II, and as such, the leader of the player's party. He is the adopted brother of Maria and Leon and he is the best friend of Guy. Firion is a youth from Fynn, who flees it as the Empire lays siege to and occupies it.
In the Japanese Final Fantasy II Muma no Meikyū novelization, Firion was born in Salamand and was taken in by his adopted family after his parents' death. After his home is burned down and his adoptive parents murdered by the Palamecian army, he is critically wounded by several black knights while fleeing Fynn. Upon awakening, he finds himself in the remote rebel stronghold of Altair where he reunites with his close friends Maria and Guy. Upon realizing that Leon has been separated from them, Firion, Maria and Guy ask Princess Hilda if they could join the rebel army since they have nothing left to return to, together they work to defeat the Empire, take back Fynn, and save the world. Firion appears along with the Emperor in the Dissidia: Final Fantasy series and appears as a player character in the Spin-Off Theatrhythm Final Fantasy.
Firion is the first main character in the series with a default name and an actual storyline, unlike the playable characters of the original Final Fantasy.
