Amarant appears in Final Fantasy Artniks.
An accomplished--and thus highly feared--bounty hunter. Amarant is a skilled fighter, and his thick mane of red hair has led many to call him the Flaming Amarant.
Amarant is a playable character who could first be recruited during the Challenge Event A Place to Call Home as the First Time Reward for completing the event's stage Madain Sari - Pursuers on Classic difficulty. His recruitment process differed from the usual three-battle stages in that he had a single-battle stage with no enemy waves before or after him, which made him one of the quickest characters to recruit in any event. He was also awarded upon completion of the Bonus Quest, "Complete Gizamaluke's Grotto Elite (IX)", and was later reissued in Angel of Death. Amarant also appears as a boss named "Scarlet Hair" in dedicated Final Fantasy IX stages.
Amarant is a Pugilist, whose combat role is Physical Attack.
"Pugilist" is just a fancy word for a fist-fighter, but "Monk" is an even better word to describe what Amarant does for a party. Like Refia before him, Amarant can attack from either rank, and he has strong physical stats to support his role. His Soul Breaks include skills that support other party members as well. His Speed is also an asset, as is a broad range of usable skills. Thus, he may well be a worthy addition to the player's roster.
Amarant can use Combat abilities up to rarity rank 5, Support abilities up to rarity rank 3, Celerity abilities up to rarity rank 3, Monk abilities up to rarity rank 5, and Sharpshooter abilities up to rarity rank 5.
His default Soul Break is No Mercy which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals physical damage to one target. The fist Scissor Fangs (IX) allow Amarant to use Aura which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment grants Shell and heavy Regen to all allies.
He can equip accessories.
Amarant appears as a vision obtainable through summoning. His job is Monk. His trust mastery reward is HP +30%. He possesses the special abilities Throw, Chakra, Gravity Fist, Power Break, HP +10%, Curse, Counter, Draw Attacks, Eye for an Eye and Revive. His limit bursts are No Mercy, Holy Strike and Countdown.
- No. 235: "A fighter who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. He was known by the alias, the Flaming Amarant, thanks to his bright-red hair and fearsome power. Having been alone since birth, he used his own fist to navigate his way through the world on his own. Because of this, he was unable to bring himself to trust others, and was rarely ever known to speak. Still, somehow, he found himself chasing after the man with the tail."
- No. 236: "A fighter who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. Having fought his way alone through the world, he was reluctant to put trust in others. When he was a guard in Treno he set up a trap to capture the thief Zidane, but ended up being framed by him, instead. This sent him after Zidane, though not for revenge, but out of suspicion for the actions of a man who despite being Amarant's equal chose not to act on it."
- No. 237: "A fighter who appears in tales of Gaia, a world foreign to this one. Even as an assassin appointed by Brahne herself, he was unable to subdue Zidane, who once threw his own trap back in his face. Curious as to why Zidane didn't deal him the final blow, and interested in seeing exactly what kind of man he was, Amarant decided to join his former adversary. Once a man who believe the strong have no need for the weak, the longer he spent with his new comrades, the more he changed."
