    Not much of a contest there. The captain sees off the Occurian without much fuss.

    Battle 6:

    Vayne vs. Fran

    Vayne

    The Lord Consul of Dalmasca, and later leader of the Empire.

    Fran

    Balthier's partner. Takes care of the Strahl's maintenance. Joins your party after the events in the Royal Palace.

    FIGHT!

    Voting for Vayne here, as Fran was developed poorly in comparison with the other main characters, except maybe Penelo. She didn't really play enough of a role in the plot considering she's a full time member of your party. Some guests played a bigger role, to be honest. She does own in battle, but that isn't enough to get my vote.

    I'm going to have to go with Vayne too, for similar reasons. Besides, Vayne was an interesting deviation from the normal villain formula.

    I'm also voting for Vayne. His characterization wasn't anywhere near as good as previous villains in the series but at least having an antagonistic anti-hero was an interesting idea. Plus he does see some minor development towards the very end. Fran is...not a terrible character I guess, but there really isn't anything notable about her. They obviously wanted to put a non-human character in the game (FF has a substantial furry fanbase maybe?) yet couldn't think of a more interesting backstory then "was outcast from her village for some reason". I mean really, that's the same backstory EVERY humanoid character has. And the game doesn't actually explore why she left anyway. That makes her a worst character then Kimahri. Kimahri!

    Just wondering, does anyone know how the Viera reproduce? They all appear to be female.

    Vayne


    Just a comment about him. ThroneOfOminous said that his characterisation wasn't as good as some other villains from past entries. I remember Kefka being the number one choice for the "best FF villain ever", yet all he have for himself is a psychotic behavior with almost no lines. Vayne was at least twice better characterised wirh more subtleties. He may not have the charisma of a Kefka or a Kuja (and should I recall people that charisma and characterisation are 2 different things) but his motives were well developed throughout the game. It wasn't the typical "I want to rule the world" villain, and for all that, he was a fresh take on a villain.

    Fran, the stiletto heels-donning, anthropomorphic rabbit with "Björk's voice" ftw.

    Vayne 8-4 Fran

    A low turnout on this one. Vayne comes through it with relative ease.

    Battle 7:

    Larsa vs. Marquis Ondore

    Larsa

    Younger brother of Vayne. Joins your party on a few occasions.

    Marquis Ondore

    Bhujerban leader. Plays a part in the resistance against the Empire in secret, despite trying to uphold a smokescreen making it look like he is co-operating with them.

    FIGHT!

    I don't know. Larsa I guess, but neither of them really left an impression on me.

    Larsa. I was expecting him to turn towards the end, even against Vayne, and so he always came across to me as being a very cunning and evil young man. Good for him. Even though that didn't happen I still found him interesting enough from his introduction to the end.

    I never thought much of Ondore except how I hated the voice actors' choice of saying "mar-kwiss" rather than "mar-kee". Meh. >.>

    Larsa. I didn't really like either of them, but I disliked Ondore more.

    Larsa

    He was pretty helpful in the Lhusu Mines.
