Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Gekkou is one of the characters Edge talks to before heading to the Cave of Eblan. He is seen guarding the entrance to Eblan if the player, when in control of Edge, goes outside the cave and head back to the castle.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

When Eblan receives word of Baron stealing Crystals from the other nations, the Eblan Four become eager to assist Edge, and they are sent on missions to gather information. Gekkou travels to Fabul to investigate the impact crater of a meteorite that crashed near Mt. Hobs. At the base of the crater he sees a mysterious person engaging with the Monks from Fabul, quickly defeating them.

Gekkou ponders if he would be able to save the monks, but, remembering the orders of his master, he regretfully retreats to bring the intel he has gathered, and buries them after their deaths.

He reunites with Edge and the other Eblan Four within the Tower of Babil and after being forced to escape from the Mysterious Girl and Ifrit, they fall to the Underworld and into the Falcon.

In the Gathering Tale, Gekkou watches over Yang, Ursula, and the other incapacitated characters below the Falcon's deck. During the ending, he is seen overlooking the training of Ursula. In the end he and the other Ninja Guard of Eblan renew their vows of loyalty to Edge awaiting for their next mission.



Gekkou has high HP, Strength and Stamina, surpassing many other fighters, but has low MP and Speed. His statistics and equipment make him similar to Cid and Luca, though with better individual abilities and less versatility when it comes to armor and Bands.
