----
* {{BFS}}: Marche's Judgesword in his artwork.

!!Ritz Malheur
->Voiced by: YumiKakazu (''Radio Edition'')
[[quoteright:269:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ritz_small.jpg]]
Ritz is the [[ClassRep Class Head]] of Marche's new class. At the beginning, Ritz was supposed to fight against Marche's team during the snowball fight, but soon switches to Marche's team. One of the bullies teases her as a "prissy grandma" due to her white hair, which she dyes red. When St. Ivalice changed into Ivalice, Ritz had natural red hair and leads a clan named "Clan Ritz" with her friend Shara.
----
* ActionGirl: Along with other [[OneGenderRace Viera]].
* AmazonBrigade: Clan Ritz is entirely composed of Viera.
* ClassRepresentative: Ritz is the Class Head if you check her job during the SnowballFight.
* HairDecorations: Ritz has a hairpin.
* FashionableAsymmetry: One of her arms is wearing armor.

* GamerChick: She much prefers games over books.
* GreenEyes

!!Mewt Randell
->Voiced by: Creator/AsamiSanada (''Radio Edition'')
[[quoteright:269:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ffta-mewt_small.jpg]]
Mewt is the one who triggered the power of the Gran Grimoire. He is one of Marche's new friends who was always bullied in school. When they were still in St. Ivalice, Mewt was hit by a lot of snowballs, including one with a rock, causing his forehead to bleed. He then introduces his friends Marche and Ritz an old book he found at a bookstore. In Ivalice, however, he is the Prince and was highly respected by its citizens. He even has Babus and Llednar to serve for him.
----
* AdaptationalAngstUpgrade: He screams more in the AudioAdaptation.
* {{Bookworm}}: Mewt is the class librarian, and his connection to grimoires indicates this.
** It's also implied reading books makes one connected to magic in some way or is an indication that all mages are bookworms because they'd have to be smart to cast magic. Mewt's stats in the snowball fight show that he has a few points in Magic Attack while all the other children have no magic power at all.
* TheCaligula: Makes the laws harsher whenever he feels threatened by Marche's efforts, causing quite a bit of resentment toward him and the queen.
* CollaredByFashion: Mewt wears a red collar.
* CompanionCube: Mewt's teddy bear, which was given to him by his dead mother.
* FacialMarkings: On his forehead in Ivalice.
* HappyPlace: He shapes Ivalice to be this--a living mother, a father he can be proud of, and him in charge.
* HornedHairdo: In Ivalice.
* NonActionGuy
** TheUnfought
* TheQuietOne: Mewt usually quotes "..." during the beginning.
** [[IncrediblyLamePun Guess Mewt is sort of a Mute.]]
* SpellBook: The Gran Grimoire, Mewt is s the only one who can truly command its RealityWarper powers.
* SpikesOfVillainy:He's not ''really'' a villain, but he was ''against'' Marche during the game.
* SpoiledBrat: Mewt becoming a prince in Ivalice turned him into this. Anything he wants, his mother gives him and if she isn't around for it, Babus or Cid will grant Mewt's desires. When he hears how Marche is avoiding everything he throws at him, Mewt turns to his mother to make everything better and acts helpless if she isn't around.
* TragicKeepsake: His stuffed bear.

!!Doned Radiuju
->Voiced by: Hiromi Ishikawa (''Radio Edition'')
Marche's younger brother, who is confined to a wheelchair and has to go to the hospital on a regular basis. In Ivalice, neither applies to him.
----
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Late in the game, Marche goes after a very promising lead in the hopes of luring Doned out so that he can talk with him.
* IllBoy: He was born frail and sickly.
* KnowledgeBroker: A minor example being a street ear who gives clans tips and information.
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: After Marche makes him realise just how ungrateful he's been concerning his family's efforts (and that he can still go on living despite how hard it is, possibly even being able to walk someday in the future), Doned breaks down in his older brothers arms and apologises for what he's been doing to him.]]
* NonActionGuy: Even able to walk, he's too young to be able to fight in a clan yet.
* SpoiledBrat: Deconstructed. He sends people knowing they could well and truly kill his brother under some circumstances, but he also has a FreudianExcuse in that he especially doesn't want the world to return to normal. He ''is'' implied to be a bit of one in the real world as well, where he doesn't appreciate how much his family does for him.
* ThrowingOffTheDisability: In Ivalice, crippled Doned could walk. [[spoiler:Official artwork seems to have him and Marche standing in a photo together in the real world.]]
* TheUnfought: He works against Marche by tipping him off to bounty hunters, guards or rival clans, but never faces him in combat. A wandering clan called the "Doned Faction" can be encountered, but he isn't in it. Justified that he is not old enough to engage.

!!Cid Randell
->Voiced by: YasuyukiKase (''Radio Edition'')
Mewt's father, who sank into depression after the death of his wife. In Ivalice, he becomes the Judge Master and the highest authotity besides Mewt and Remedi.
----
* {{Bowdlerize}}: In the US version, he's only outright said to be having trouble at work, with anything else left to implication.
* CardsOfPower: His Advanced Law commands activate with these in addition he can assign red or yellow cards to send lawbreakers to prison.
* DrowningMySorrows: During the beginning of the game in the Japanese version.
** AlcoholicParent
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: Or rather, he swears neutrality and service to the Law rather than to the Palace; however, he discreetly supports Marche's efforts to return the world to normal, aiding him for the rest of the main story.]]
* TheJudge
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: In Ivalice, he seems not to remember his past life, unlike the other people from Mewt's life. [[spoiler:When his memory returns, he endorses returning the world to normal.]]
* TheMourningAfter: Whether drowning his sorrows or crying in the gutters this is the source of his turmoil.
* YasuyukiKase

[[quoteright:269:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Ffta-montblanc_small.jpg]]
Montblanc found Marche as soon as St. Ivalice experienced its transformation. He is very loyal to him, especially in ''Final Fantasy Tactics Advance Radio Edition''.
----
* BigNo: During the mission [[spoiler:"Moogle Bride"]], when it turns out that [[spoiler:the suitor was tricking him]].

* IAmNotWeasel: Montblanc's reaction when Marche calls him a "stuffed animal".
* IWillWaitForYou: What Montblanc says towards Marche during one of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtcjvlBM6n8 commercials]].
* JapanesePronouns: In the AudioAdaptation, Montblanc usually uses Marche's name towards Marche. Otherwise, he would use ''omae'' instead.
** When referring to himself, he says "Mogu", which could be a moogle-style version of "boku".
* {{Keet}}: In the AudioAdaptation, especially at Vol. 4.
* [[Creator/HyoSei Kumiko Yokote]]: That's what the credit says.
* NoIndoorVoice: Montblanc yells a ''LOT'' in the AudioAdaptation.
* SayMyName: Marche calls his name [[spoiler:if he dies in a Jagd (unprotected slum - keyword "unprotected" - which can cause a FinalDeath]].

* DuelBoss: The second time he's confronted, although Marche's goal is to destroy the Exodus Fruits rather than defeat him.
* FireForgedFriends: After the main story is over, one can take a mission which will end in him being recruitable. [[spoiler: Following the fight against Li-Grim/Remedi]], Marche offers him friendship despite their earlier clashes - after fighting side-by-side more recently, "why not?". Babus accepts, although he doesn't go as far as calling them "close friends", a sentiment Marche agrees with.
* {{Foil}}: To Ezel.
* MagicKnight
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Says as much to Marche - he causes Mewt pain, and that's reason enough for him to oppose him. [[spoiler:When he starts aiding Marche's efforts, he does so purely because he starts to believe it would be better for Mewt to face reality.]]
* PrematurelyBald: He sounds younger compared to Ezel and other Nu Mou have hair.

* InsufferableGenius: His attitude, not that anyone calls him out on it - he truly ''is'' quite brilliant.
* MadScientist
* NoHeroDiscount: [[spoiler:After you recruit him, the prices stay the same]]. It's also unclear how saving him affects his prices, but arguably, being let in on his secret shop can be considered a reward.
* RebelliousSpirit
* TheSmartGuy
* SpySpeak
* SquishyWizard: Unlike Babus he can't really take a hit.

!!Queen Remedi
->Voiced by: Creator/YoshikoSakakibara (''Radio Edition'')
Mewt's dead mother. Brought BackFromTheDead [[spoiler:not. She's really the Li Grim, and the FinalBoss. This article deals with both Remedi and the Li Grim posing as her Ivalice equivalent.]]
