|“||Ivalice will know a new Dynast King, and Man will keep his own history! The tyranny of the Gods is ended! We shall be their puppets no more! The freedom for which we have longed is at hand!||„|
|~ Vayne Carudas Solidor|
Vayne Carudas Solidor (ヴェイン・カルダス・ソリドール, Vein Karudasu Soridōru?) is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy XII. At 27 years old, he is the third son of Archadia's Emperor, Lord Gramis, the elder brother of Larsa Ferrinas Solidor, and part of House Solidor.
Driven by the desire to free mankind from the Occuria, he is also highly ambitious, seeking to become a new Dynast King, and is lauded by friend and foe alike as a devious politician, skillful leader and administrator, and a true military genius. While he is a great leader and general, he is also ruthless and obsessed by power, though he does hold a soft spot for his younger brother Larsa. After the death of his father, Vayne becomes the 12th Emperor of Archadia, and the 5th from House Solidor.
