Luso Clemens

I dunno what the world's coming to if chests in underground tunnels can't be relied on to contain treasure!

There's only one way to end a story.
~ Luso


Luso Clemens is the main male protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, who also appears as a playable character in Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions.

A cheerful and adventurous prankster, Luso was assigned to clean his school library for his antics right before summer vacation. The task bored him, prompting him to open a book with a particularly ornate cover, transporting him into Ivalice and throwing him onto a battlefield between a Clan of adventurers and a massive cockatrice named Klesta. Forced to choose between joining the adventurers or facing the beast without protection or equipment, Luso naturally chose to join them to avoid becoming bird food, starting his journey as a member of Clan Gully.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Air Blast: Luso focuses air into a cone in front of him to blast foes with a small tornado.
  • Air Render: Luso focuses air around his fist before sending a multitude of air blades at a target.
  • Aurablast: Luso expels his inner energy as an attack, blasting enemies in a fairly wide area from a considerable distance.
  • Backdraft: Luso imbues his weapon with fiery energy and attacks with a powerful but reckless swing, dealing heavy damage but also returning some of the damage dealt back to Luso as recoil. But this recoil can be negated with fire-negating or absorbing equipment.
  • Beat Down: Luso wildly swings at a target to deal double the damage of a normal attack, but has its accuracy cut in half as a result.
  • Blitz: Luso uses a carefully measured and incredibly accurate attack that can tag opponents that are much faster than him, but deals reduced damage as a result.
  • Rend Skills: Luso can strike an opponent's abilities instead of their body directly, lowering their striking strength, magical power, durability, magical reserves, or speed. These skills will always work unless the opponent has increased their evasion abilities through external means, but must be used at close range.
  • Rush: Luso strikes the target when they least expect it, sending them hurtling backwards a considerable distance.
  • Ultima: The ultimate magic spell, dealing incredible amounts of damage with an explosion that can engulf entire battlefields. In his home game, Luso must use this at point blank range while equipped with a melee weapon but can use it from a distance if equipped with a bow. Luso himself is not affected by the blast.

Notes: As with many tactical RPGs, Luso's powerset and equipment are entirely up to the player, meaning that the OP should specify what he is equipped with and what abilities he has.
