Kelger Vlondett, originally romanized as Kelgar, known as Kelga in the Anthology translation, and Kelgore in the RPGe fan-translation, is a non-player character in Final Fantasy V. Kelger is a Warrior of Dawn.



Kelger is an anthropomorphic lupine, appearing closely to a typical depiction of a werewolf. In his official artwork and portrait by Yoshitaka Amano, his fur is in shades of grey, but his in-game sprite depicts him as having fur in a light shade of brown. He wears a gold headpiece with a protruding horn behind his ears. He wears a full-body armor and a yellow cape.


Kelger is initially distrustful of Bartz, Lenna, and Faris, and asks Bartz to mettle with him to prove his worth. Kelger is loyal to his friends however, and when he learns Bartz is the son of his old acquaintance, he accepts the party with open arms.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Kelger a Warrior of Dawn along with Galuf, Dorgann, and Xezat. He is a werewolf and, like all of his race, hails from the town of Quelb, where he is leader. Galuf, along with Bartz, Lenna, and Faris, visit the town and Kelger challenges Bartz to a fight, believing him to work for Exdeath.

Kelger initiates his "Lupine Attack" (known as Pine Attack in the Anthology translations), but is defeated by a powerful blow that sends him through a door. While recovering, Kelger learns Bartz is Dorgann's son, and the party's real motives for coming to Quelb, and grants them passage to Drakenvale to the north. Later, when the party is in Castle Exdeath, already weak and dying, Kelger sacrifices his life energy so the party can see through the illusion spell cast up by Exdeath. He is the last of the Warriors of Dawn to die.

When the party is sent to the Void, Kelger's spirit, among those of the other Dawn Warriors and King Tycoon, appear to help the Light Warriors.

Spoilers end here.
