I am Judge Magister. Even in disgrace. My just reward for aiding the empire that destroyed my homeland.
~ Judge Gabranth
Silence! All was stripped from me! Only hatred for the brother who fled our homeland remains mine.
~ Judge Gabranth


Judge Gabranth (ガブラス, Gaburasu?), born and more formally known as Noah fon Ronsenburg (ノア・フォン・ローゼンバーグ, Noa fon Rōzenbāgu?), is a character in Final Fantasy XII. A major antagonist, he is Basch Fon Ronsenburg's younger twin brother and is a Judge Magister, the highest rank in the Archadian Empire's military. While he appears to hold an extreme loyalty towards the Empire faithfully, a torn and broken man lies behind his lordly façade.
