Added DiffLines:

* EstablishingCharacterMoment: In his very first scene, on pure charisma he rouses a rowdy and angry crowd from contemptful to hopeful with a speech that earns him near-universal applause. Not long after, he promises to get Migelo drunk enough to start calling him by his first name. AffablyEvil indeed.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenEvilTeammate: As explained above, four of the five Judge Magisters have at least some degree of nobility and honor. Bergan is the exception -- he revels in bloodshed and war, thinks Vayne should become Emperor because Bergan wants a conqueror on the throne, and he's just generally brutal, vicious, and unpleasant to everyone, even his fellow Judges.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foil}}: To Balthier, in lots of spoileriffic ways. Had they each made some slightly different choices, they might have switched places in the narrative. [[spoiler:They're both former members of the Archadian Empire, Judges even (though Reddas was a Judge ''Magister''), who went rogue and abandoned their former lives and names when the Empire's warmongering went too far for them. However, Balthier would rather have nothing to do with the Archadia and nethciite and gets roped into things by chance, while Reddas protactively seeks to stop Cid from using nethicite on the scale of Nabudis and will fight to do it. Balthier went rogue to reclaim his freedom and became a sky pirate with little higher ambition than that, while Reddas went rogue to resist the Empire, which included becoming the de facto leader of Balfonheim and an ally of Ondore.]]

* OlderSidekick: Is Balthier's partner, but in practice she often just follows him. She is also 50+, while he is 22.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Would you believe that he's only ''thirty-three''?

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Would you believe that he's only ''thirty-three''?''thirty-three''? Then again, it could just be that he shaves his head and his hair colour is naturally white, which wouldn't be out there for Final Fantasy.

* ThereIsAnother: It is strongly implied that [[spoiler:the Occuria are grooming him as a replacement Dynast-King if their manipulations of Ashe don't work; Vaan can see Rasler's m too, but to him it looks like Reks]].

-->[[spoiler:"Fear not, princess of Dalmasca. We Occuria have chosen you, and you alone."]]



* MoralityChainBeyondTheGrave: [[spoiler:One of her reasons for deciding against using nethicite to destroy the Empire is that the Rasler she loved would never use such catastrophic means for revenge]].

to:

* MoralityChainBeyondTheGrave: [[spoiler:One of Rasler's ghost appears as SpiritAdvisor to drive her reasons for deciding forward on her quest to restore Dalmasca, [[spoiler:such as convincing her not to use the Sword of Kings to destroy the Dawn Shard and leading her into Giruvegan to meet the Occuria. After it is revealed that his ghost is only an Occurian-made illusion, Ashe decides against using nethicite to destroy the Empire is that because the real Rasler she loved would never use such catastrophic means for revenge]].



* TragicKeepsake: She still wears her wedding ring and also wears Rasler's on her middle finger. She reluctantly gives Rasler's ring to Balthier as compensation for him and Fran accompanying her on her journey until he finds "something more valuable", [[spoiler:and she does not put it back on when it's returned to her in the epilogue]].

* NecessarilyEvil: The only real way to shake off Occurian rule is to get rid of those they've put on the thrones of power around the world, destroy their god-given tools of oppression, and permanently stop any attempts they might make to re-establish control. That unfortunately means an international war or two.
