Our clan has a very strict entrance examination. We should begin yours at once... And you pass. Moogles are quick to make up their minds, kupo.
Clan Centurio is one of the many clans in the world of Ivalice. Starting out small, they expand to become one of the largest clans. Some of the members can be found in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance as the first members of Clan Nutsy. It also appears in Final Fantasy XII as the clan the player can join to partake in special hunts.
Clan Centurio is a recently founded Elite Mark hunting group. Its leader and founder is the moogle Montblanc who receives bills for some of the toughest Marks for Vaan and company to track down and defeat, offering prizes along the way. It also operates a special store for clan members only at the Muthru Bazaar, which provides items based on clan rank, many of which can only be obtained from the provisioner.
The base for the clan is in Rabanastre's North End in the Clan Hall. It can first be visited after completing the Rogue Tomato hunt, where Tomaj of the Sandsea will advise Vaan to seek out a bangaa if he wants to advance his hunting career. Finding the bangaa allows the player access into the Hall.
Clan Centurio can be battled at the "Champion's Cup" mission that appears after all cups are completed, with Bansat at the head. If the player uses Montblanc in this battle, there will be a conversation between him and the seeq where Montblanc says the battle will show the best leader of the clan. Special conversations also result when Vaan or Penelo leads the clan, which is about Bansat asking Vaan/Penelo to join them.
Clan Centurio makes an appearance in the first expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. Returning as a clan of hunters they give players mark bills and reward them with Centurio Seals upon defeating Marks.
Montblanc is the leader of Clan Centurio and is responsible for supervising Vaan's clan hunt progress in Final Fantasy XII. He has a wide affiliation with other guilds and organizations around Ivalice, such as his sister Gurdy, who runs the world's chocobo stables. It is his desire to not only see Clan Centurio as the most prestigious of all clans, but to avenge his master's death at the hands of Yiazmat. He is oldest of the six moogle siblings, the others being Nono, Gurdy, Hurdy, Horne, and Sorbet.
Krjn is a viera and one of the founding members. She aids Vaan's clan hunt for the Carrot Mark. She is the older sister of Ktjn, a viera who can be aided in various ways in the city of Rabanastre. She is Clan Nutsy's viera archer in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
Ma'kenroh (マッケンロー, Makkenrō?) is a nu mou and a founding member. He offers advice on hunts, but unlike other members, he does not participate in battle; other clan members mention this, stating that he uses other talents to aid Montblanc. He and Montblanc are old friends, explaining his presence in the Clan Hall. He is one of only two living nu mou in all of Rabanastre. He is Clan Nutsy's nu mou white mage in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
Tomaj is the hume owner of the Sandsea Tavern and Vaan's friend. He gives Vaan the bounty on the Rogue Tomato Mark and tells him the basics of hunting. He is a scout for the clan who seeks out potential members by observing the people who go for hunts posted at the noticeboard.
Monid is a bangaa clan member of high rank. He is initially dismissive of Vaan, whom he views as a weak hunter. Monid cares for a hume child in the clan hall and it is revealed that the child is the son of Monid's hunter friends, killed by the Trickster Mark, to whom their deaths he promises to avenge. Monid helps Montblanc set the hunter stalker bait by the Belito Mark. After these two Mark hunts are pulled off successfully with Vaan's aid, Monid comes to respect him as one of the best hunters in the clan. Monid is Clan Nutsy's bangaa white monk in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
Bansat is a seeq member who aids Vaan's clan hunt for the Gil Snapper Mark in the Tracks of the Beast area in Giza Plains. A jolly fellow, he readily recognizes Vaan as "tougher than me!" when Vaan reaches a high enough Clan Rank.
Ktjn is Krjn's younger sister, and is not originally found at the clan hall. Ktjn can be found sitting on the steps at north end of the Muthru Bazaar and when Vaan talks to her, she will ask a question, usually about if she made the right decisions in life or if she is a good person. After certain points, Ktjn will ask a new question. If Vaan answers all four of her questions in a way that makes Ktjn feel worse, she will leave her spot on the steps and join Clan Centurio. She will vow to become stronger, and rewards the player with a Platinum Blade. Ktjn is Clan Nutsy's green mage in the Japanese version of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
Emet (エメット, Emetto?) appears in the Japanese version Final Fantasy Tactics Advance as Clan Nutsy's soldier and appeared again in the Jylland Cup in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift.
Once the player has defeated 43 marks (for exception the Shadowseer) and the Hell Wyrm, Montblanc will reveal his reasons for founding the clan. Long ago, Montblanc and his siblings had a master who taught them all they know about the world. He was a wise and brave person, and the moogles looked up to him.
One day a terrible monster appeared, called Yiazmat, and the moogles' master fought the wyrm for a long time but in the end, only Yiazmat remained. Swearing revenge for his fallen mentor, Montblanc started Clan Centurio to find the strongest warrior to fight the wyrm. Once Vaan's party fulfills the requirements Montblanc will send them off to fight Yiazmat. Upon Yiazmat's defeat, Montblanc will thank Vaan and keep the clan running.
