Lone Wolf the Pickpocket (こそどろ一匹オオカミ, Kosodoro Ippiki Ōkami?, lit. Lone Wolf the Petty Thief) is a character who has appeared twice in the series. He is a werewolf, a thief, and is known to steal treasure from chests before the party obtains them. He is also frequently seen imprisoned.


Final Fantasy VEdit

Lone Wolf is first seen imprisoned in Castle Walse. The party can select to free him or leave him captured. If he is freed, he will steal some treasures from their chests in dungeons elsewhere in the world, leaving a note behind, and the party cannot get them.

The treasures he steals are two Cottages in Castle Tycoon, a Cottage in Castle Surgate, a Cottage in Carwen, and the Blitz Whip in Jachol Cave. Those five treasures are not counted on the percent of treasures looted, and the Blitz Whip can also be stolen from Flaremancers in the Fork Tower, but it will be lost forever if not obtained before the tower's destruction.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

The party can follow him to the ledge where Valigarmanda is sitting.

There, he is holding Mog hostage. If the party waits where he asks them to for a minute, he and Mog will fly off the ledge, and the party must choose to save either Lone Wolf or Mog. Freeing Lone Wolf gives the party a Gold Hairpin, while freeing Mog causes Mog to join the party. However, no matter who the party chooses, Lone Wolf will fall down. When the party returns to Narshe in World of Ruin, Lone Wolf is running out of Narshe.


A lone wolf is an animal or person that generally lives or spends time alone instead of with a group. The term originates from wolf behavior. Normally a pack animal, wolves that have left or been excluded from their pack are described as lone wolves.
