* NotSoImaginaryFriend: Part of the reason why Balthier abandoned the Empire was that he believed his father Dr. Cid had gone mad and invented Venat wholecloth out of that madness.
-->'''Balthier:''' "So... He was talking to Venat all along. He wasn't mad at all, was he."


Added DiffLines:

* SpiritAdvisor: To Dr. Cid, then to Vayne after Cid's passing.

* TheBadGuyWins: Her goal was to stop the Occuria's manipulation, something that heroes have no problems with, and in the end she succeeds.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Like the rest of the Occuria, Venat's motivations are as unknowable as her actions. In siding with Ivalice's mortal races and desiring to free them from her brethren, she's willing to engage in atrocities on the scale of genocide, but treats her allies in this quest with kindness and honor, and only does as much evil as is absolutely necessary to bring about the "greater good." By the end of the game she succeeds.

* InvisibleToNormals: Venat is invisible to anyone she doesn't want to interact with.
* ManBehindTheMan: Vayne and Cid are threats, but only because Venat's aid enables them to be.
* NecessarilyEvil: The only real way to shake off Occurian rule is to get rid of those they've put on the throne of world power. That unfortunately means an international war or two.

with. For example, Balthier had written his father Cid off for a madman for routinely talking to this "Venat" character that didn't actually exist outside his own mind. Venat revealing herself to the party in Draklor Laboratory quickly changes his mind.
