- "Seeing you out there, bagging all those marks, well it inspired me! (snort) You're my new hero! Bu hweeeeee!"
Jovy (新人ジョヴィ, shinjin Jovi?, lit. "newcomer Jovy") is a minor character in Final Fantasy XII. Jovy is a seeq living in Nalbina and he used to know Vaan's elder brother Reks. Jovy knows Reks because at one time, Jovy was framed for stealing and Reks helped prove Jovy's innocence. He was first seen stumbling all over Nalbina's West Ward and then collapsing on the floor while crying because his "hero" was dead and because he was a new recruit who was constantly being bullied. After completing all the hunts at Nalbina, the player gets a scene with Jovy and some items.
The party must first finish the following hunts in Nalbina:
- 17. Trouble in the Hills: Atomos
- 18. Adding Insult to Injury: Roblon
- 24. The Creature Collector: Goliath
- 25. Dead City Watch: Deathscythe
- 39. Carrot Stalk: Carrot
After the hunts are completed, the player should meet Jovy (who now runs differently) in the West Ward of Nalbina. He will stop crying and reveal why Vaan is his hero and hand over an Elixir and a Knot of Rust.
