Norzen is a mysterious man who can see the future. He is often seen talking to himself while immersed in what he does, that's why he has trouble hearing someone who's behind him. Later, it is revealed that he lost some of his sense of hearing while searching for a cure to the Great Plague. He also has an annoying loud voice and would laugh heartily. In his spare time, he is known to enjoy ballroom dancing and gardening.
Born in the city of Ancheim, Norzen played a role in the aftermath of the Great Plague that befell Luxendarc as Braev Lee had him develop a cure against the second wave while he led the Anti-Crystalists to conquer Eternia. He later moved to Al-Khampis where he becomes Professor Emeritus, rarely seen while standing on the sidelines during the events of Bravely Default.
When the Glanz Empire makes it move, Norzen sensed the threat they posed and saw reviving Tiz Arrior to be the means to stop them. But when Kaiser Oblivion's forces take over Eternian Central Command, Norzen sends Yew Geneolgia and Edea Lee to go in his place so they can meet Magnolia Arch. When the assumed group later arrive to Al-Khampus, spurred by his own guilt of not involving himself during the crystal incident years ago, Norzen sought to sacrifice his place of birth to take out the Skyhold with a sandstorm. But Yew and company defeat Norzen and convince him not to go through with it. Norzen then tells Yew's group the whereabouts of the Compass of Space and Time before he is attacked by one of the cats serving Minette Napkatti, dying from his injuries while pleading the group to get the compass.
Norzen uses abilities befitting of his Astrologian asterisk.
