Khalia Chival VI (カリヤ・シバル６世, Kariya Shibaru Rokusei?) is a supporting character from Final Fantasy Type-0. He is the 174th Chancellor of the Dominion of Rubrum and the headmaster of the Akademeia magic academy. He leads the Consortium of Eight, Rubrum's governing body.
Khalia is an older man with gray hair. According to the Crimson Codex, Khalia is 62 years old and 185cm tall. Kazusa mentions that Khalia, despite his age, still has a muscular physique.
Chancellor Chival serves as both headmaster of Akademeia and chief executive of the Dominion of Rubrum. He enjoyed recognition in his youth as a great mage, and he is similarly respected and admired by his colleagues at present. Chancellor Chival places great importance on order and authority, and he endeavors to embody both as a model for trhe denizens of the dominion, radiating composure. The chancellor often makes visits to villages around the dominion, preaching the gospel of the Vermilion Bird Crystal.
He was known as a great mage in his youth and has earned the confidence of those around him. Though he is aware that the students are willing to die for the country, he avoids putting them at risk at the point of considering unethical means to defeat their enemy. He is defined by his unshakable faith in the Vermilion Bird Crystal's protection and guidance, even more so than many other members of the Consortium of Eight.
In his youth Khalia rose to fame as a mage, proving himself more powerful than his fellow cadets, and thus the administration appointed him the 174th chancellor and chief executive of Rubrum. The chancellor has faith in archsorceress Arecia Al-Rashia and the group of students she has personally tutored away from the academy. As the Militesi Empire invades Rubrum, they deploy crystal jammers to disable the Vermilion Bird Crystal rendering Rubrum's forces vulnerable. As Arecia's group of cadets can withstand the effect of the crystal jammer, they are deployed to destroy it. As one of her cadets, Ace, requests a communicator be delivered to him for the mission, he asks for Izana Kunagiri from the Rubrum forces to do it. Arecia relays Ace's request and the chancellor approves it without consulting the army leaders.
Izana delivers the communicator but perishes. Arecia's cadets destroy the crystal jammers and defeat the White Tiger l'Cie Qun'mi Tru'e. With power returning to the Vermilion Bird Crystal Rubrum forces drive the Militesi army from the capital. Afterward, the chancellor is impressed with Arecia's cadets' prowess and approves of them being admitted to Akademeia as Class Zero with two other cadets, Machina Kunagiri and Rem Tokimiya, also joining. The chancellor allows Class Zero be deployed in the effort to reclaim the Rubrum Region that had been lost to the empire, and the campaign is a success.
The chancellor believes in the Vermilion Bird Crystal's guidance and thus places high hopes in the Vermilion Bird Primus l'Cie Zhuyu Voghfau Byot. During the battle for the Togoreth Stronghold, Zhuyu crosses blades with the White Tiger Primus l'Cie Nimbus, and the entire area is obliterated. After Class Zero has been deployed to an imperial magitek factory near Ingram, word arrives that the empire wants to negotiate for peace. Unable to get word to the cadets in time to halt the mission, the chancellor with his entourage that includes Kurasame Susaya as his bodyguard arrive at Ingram. Queen Andoria invokes the ancient Fabula Pact peace agreement as she arrives, and a ceasefire is called. The cadets are given leave in Ingram while the chancellor negotiates with Andoria and Marshal Cid Aulstyne of Milites, but Andoria is assassinated and, taking this to mean the ceasefire's end, the chancellor and his entourage hurry back to Rubrum to commence the war. Unable to contact Class Zero, the cadets are left behind.
News spread that it was the cadets of Class Zero who had assassinated the queen and attempted to assassinate the marshal as per dominion orders due to Rubrum having been dissatisfied the truce conditions. Andoria is succeeded by a king who allies with the empire to begin a joint campaign against Rubrum. As the situation appears increasingly gloomy the Consortium of Eight is called. The provost, cadetmaster and commandant blame the Class Zero cadets whom they deem to have gone rogue. Arecia finds the accusations ludicrous, and the chancellor interrupts the argument by telling the others the Vermilion Bird Secundus l'Cie, Lady Caetuna, is willing to use Verboten Eidolons against the Militesi-Concordia coalition lest they try to invade Rubrum, shocking everyone with the news.
The commandant plots to get rid of Arecia, whom he deems has too much power over the consortium. He schemes to send Class Zero and their commanding officer to a suicide mission under the pretense of clearing their name. The commissar, Tazuru Kisga, knows about the commandant's plot and asks him to leave both herself and the chancellor out of them. Kisga's assignment to the dominion Logistics came through the personal recommendation of the chancellor himself, and her constant deference to him lead many to believe she may be his mistress.
Rubrum secures victory on the western front when Class Zero defeats Shinryu Celestia. The eastern front is falling back and thus Class Zero is recalled as reinforcements to destroy the empire's crystal jammer allowing for Lady Caetuna to begin summoning Alexander. Alexander obliterates the Militesi forces, and Caetuna enters crystal stasis. News are delivered to Khalia, who, comments that Caetuna's sublimation means they have been following the Will of the Crystal. He asks for Caetuna's crystal retrieved and placed in the catacombs. Khalia meets with Arecia, who comments her children made it out safely. He tells her Caetuna's sublimation means the Crystal's Will has been served, and Arecia agrees. Khalia says he will do his part in ensuring the Crystal's Will, and Arecia says she is counting on him.
