I know I'm not always reliable, but I swear to be your hope this time! As long as you believe in me, I won't lose, that I promise you!
~ Tiz Arrior in his image song You're My Hope


Tiz Arrior is one of the main protagonists of Bravely Default. The "Miracle Man" who survived the collapse of his hometown, Norende, Tiz is haunted by the fact that he is not only the only survivor but the fact that he failed to save his younger brother Til in the midst of the disaster. He assists the Wind Vestal Agnes Oblige in hopes of finding some piece of mind and a place to go back to. Kind, mild-mannered, and down-to-earth, he serves as the core of the group and the voice of reason in most situations.

Tiz returns as a party member in Bravely Second, having been kept in a vivipod to sustain him after releasing the Celestial from his body at the end of the first game.

Intelligence: Gifted. Tiz is a farmboy who's rather naive, and had never left his hometown prior to the events of the game. Nevertheless, he is resourceful, and picks up new crafts quickly, gradually becoming experienced enough to master all of the Asterisks and even defeat ancient beings like Ouroboros in combat. In addition, he is arguably the most reasonable and level-headed member of the party (with a few exceptions) and is noted to be thoughtful and responsible.

Weaknesses: Extremely reckless when innocent people are in danger, particularly when young children are involved. Many of his skills and magic spells are reliant on his limited supply of MP. Bravely Second is reliant on SP, which cannot be refilled during battle.
