Series appearancesEdit



Basch was to be the main protagonist for the cancelled Final Fantasy XII spin-off sequel game where he would have defended Ivalice and Ashe from a marine army seeking to take over the land. He would have had a small romance with her, but it would not have worked out, and the two would have drifted apart by the game's end. Basch would have been one of the only people in Ivalice to believe the legends of an old sea king who tries to invade Ivalice every 10,000 years, and would have traveled to the uncharted territories to defend a magickal fortress, the structure standing between Ivalice and the sea the marine forces would try to overtake. He would have been joined by his old allies from Final Fantasy XII, as well as Larsa and other Archadian Judges. Only his closest friends would have been aware of his true identity, most others calling him "Judge Gabranth".[1]

He would have faced challenges when defending the fortress from the sea king Loemund, allying the demigod Laegd after besting him in battle. Basch would have become torn between his self-appointed duty and his growing feelings for Ashe, who was developing feelings for Larsa. He would have come into conflict with Zargabaath after his true identity was revealed, resulting in his temporary imprisonment. In the end, when he had the chance to escape, Basch decided to stay behind and defeated Loemond at the cost of his life. The epilogue would have seen Laegd taking Basch's body to Loemond's castle, where he would have been resurrected and become the new Sea King.[2]

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit


Gabranth alt2

Though he does not appear in person, several references to Basch are made in Dissidia. Gabranth uses variations of Basch's Quickenings for his EX Burst, and Keith Ferguson, Basch's voice actor in Final Fantasy XII, voices Gabranth in place of his original actor, Michael E. Rogers. Basch is also the namesake for a Ghost Card, a Level 100 Gabranth that the player can win Orange Gems and Nethicite from through battlegen.

Dissidia 012 Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia012 Gabranth gains a second alternate outfit based on his disguise when he impersonated Basch during the Battle of Nalbina Fortress, and Vaan's secret quote is "I'm Basch!".

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit


FFRK Basch
A brave captain who never strays from the knight's true path. An Archadian plot in its war with Rabanastre two years prior saw Basch blamed for the assassination of King Raminas, but throughout it all he has remained devoted to Princess Ashe.
—Character profile.

Basch is a playable character who could be initially recruited during the Challenge Event Consorting with Sky Pirates as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Draklor Laboratory stage on the Classic difficulty.


Basch is a Former Dalmascan Captain, whose combat role is Physical Defense.

In a game already rich with Knight-type characters, Basch's role is not much of a surprise. He will be a Final Fantasy XII party's first line of defense against physical enemies, and with a little luck, he can be an excellent support for said party. On his own, he is a strong attacker with a broad range of melee weapons at his disposal. Basch's Resistance, like that of many defenders, could be his downfall if not offset with a strong piece of armor.
