- "A friend of Master Balthier’s a friend of mine."
Jules (ジュール, Jūru?) is a non-player character in Final Fantasy XII. He is a shady dealer in Archades, who knows the key to success is knowledge. He always has his ear to the ground, looking out for the next big rumor.
The party first meet Jules in Old Archades, where he recognizes Balthier. Knowing Balthier does not want him to spread the rumor he has returned to Archades, Jules offers to help Vaan and the party get to the city's upper levels.
Upon reaching the upper levels, Balthier splits off, and gives Jules some chops, so the rest of the party may get to the Draklor Laboratory. Ever the swindler, Jules keeps the chops, and sets Vaan to work getting his own. When Vaan meets up with Balthier and Balthier realizes Jules stole the chops he had given him, Vaan realizes Jules is probably not as friendly with Balthier as he first thought.

The theme that plays when the party meets Jules is "Little Rascal". The theme also plays near the beginning of the game when Vaan is looking for Kytes.
- Jules is one of the few to refer to Balthier by the name of Ffamran.
