Appearance and PersonalityEdit
- “You must be awfully confident in your strength if you're skipping training just to flap your lips like that.”
- —Beclem criticizing Aurochs.
Beclem's model is one of the many designs of Crusaders' members seen throughout Final Fantasy X: he has brown hair and wears an iron mask which protects his eyes and forehead. He wears a red tanktop and has a green belt around his waist. Over the tanktop he has a purple jacket adorned with iron protectives on the arms and yellow ropes at each side. He also wears loose white shorts, knee-high red socks and black shoes.
He is a no-nonsense type, and loudly decries Yevon and anything related to it (such as summoners). He claims to have known Chappu while being in the Crusaders and after hearing so many stories about his brother Wakka, was looking forward to meeting Wakka himself, but is disappointed to see he is not what he expected. Highly skilled in blitzball, Beclem is a part of the team with Wakka when the player goes against the Aurochs in a blitzball match.
After their first meeting, Yuna is incensed at Beclem's attitude regarding Yevon and the summoners. Beclem challenges Yuna to test her skill at the Gunner's Gauntlet, where the player must run from the village to the beach on Besaid Island, killing fiends along the way to gain points. Later on, after defeating Dark Valefor, the Gauntlet can also be run in Besaid Temple's Cloister of Trials.
In Chapter 3, fiends begin pouring out of the temples' Chambers of the Fayth and Beclem insists on burning the temple to save the village. Wakka ventures inside alone to quell the fiend infestation, but receives help from the Gullwings. Afterward, Beclem scolds Wakka for acting so reckless, as he is about to become a father.
Depending on the player's actions during the game, Beclem may leave Besaid in Chapter 5 as he has been called back to the Youth League base. The player can catch him before he sets off and he will give the player a sphere of Chappu to give to Wakka.
Beclem's Japanese voice actor is Shunsuke Sakuya and his English voice actor is Adam Paul.
