~ Sabin offering to join Terra's party

Summary

Sabin Rene Figaro (Mash in the Japanese version) is the twin brother of Edgar Roni Figaro and one of the protagonists of Final Fantasy VI. He was a physically frail and emotional youth who felt estranged from the political affairs of his fellow elites, running away from home during the ensuing turmoil after the murder of his father at the hands of the Gestahlian Empire and allowing Edgar to take the throne. After some time, he came under the tutelage of martial arts master Duncan, becoming one of his brightest pupils and becoming gaining a great deal of self-esteem as his skills and his body grew. He eventually crossed paths with his brother after ten years of separation while in pursuit of his fellow pupil Vargas, who had apparently killed Duncan. After satisfying his thirst for vengeance, Sabin offers to join his brother in his quest to protect the world, thus setting him on a new path once more.
