Senator Stabby's Retail Emporium

I gotta say, Sazh makes this look awesome as hell. I would totally get this outfit for him as DLC if that were possible.

My wife made a cool post about her top five male Final Fantasy characters using cool GIFs, so I coerced her into making some for me as well. Honorable mentions include Kain Highwind and Yang of FFIV, Edgar and Sabin Figaro of FFVI, Galuf of FFV, Barret Wallace and Cid Highwind of FFVII, Zell of FFVIII, Vivi and Zidane Tribal of FFIX, Auron and Wakka of FFX, Basch of FFXII, and finally Snow Villiers of FFXIII.

Sazh Katzroy

I don’t think Sazh, of FFXIII fame, gets nearly enough attention from the fans. He’s basically the most “normal” character from the game, and I mean that in a good way. His motivations are very clearly defined from early on, and his personality is incredibly kind and likeable. He cares deeply for his family, and for his companions, and he will do anything to take care of the people that he loves. Honestly, I think he might be the easiest character for people to relate to, because his desires are so grounded in reality. I’ll be the first to admit, when I saw pictures of him in the promotional material for FFXIII, I was worried that he was going to be the “token black guy,” and be relegated to nothing but the comic relief. I was pleasantly surprised when he turned out to not only be a great source of humor in the game, but a well fleshed out, genuinely good person that I could find myself caring about.

Yeah, this is going to sound cheesy as all get out, but Sazh Katzroy is the sort of person, and the sort of parent, that I would like to become in my life. He’s truly a great character, who deserves more respect and admiration from the fandom, regardless of your feelings about the game itself.
