FF12 Char Model - Penelo

Penelo is a playable character in Final Fantasy XII and its sequel Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, and also makes a cameo in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Her stat growth favors magick use in Final Fantasy XII, and in her follow-up appearances her job class is a Dancer who supports the rest of the party; Penelo was planned to have a connection to dancing in the original Final Fantasy XII as well, as a scene of her dancing was included in an early trailer and she dances during her Quickenings, but this was cut from the final game.


Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII

Penelo Evanesence

Penelo performing her level 2 Quickening, Evanescence.

Out of the playable characters of Final Fantasy XII, Penelo has potentially the highest MP, and at level 99 has the highest Magick Power, tied with Ashe. Penelo has the lowest HP growth and Strength, but her Vitality is high and Speed is average.

When Penelo joins the party for the first time, her level and LP are calculated with the first formula, and the second formulas are used when she joins permanently.

Penelo's Quickenings are Intercession, Evanescence and Resplendence.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant WingsEdit

FFXIIRW Penelo's job is a hybrid of White Mage and Dancer, and she wields staves as her weapon, wears dance gear as armor, armlets as accessories, and uses White Magick. She cannot do physical harm to enemies, as her normal action is to cure nearby allies.

Since she can send healing magick from afar, she is classified as a ranged unit, though she can cast Holy. Penelo's Quickening, Dance of Rapture, fully restores the HP for all allies and removes all debuffs. It is obtained by defeating Ultima.

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the RiftEdit

TA2

FFTA2 Dance

Slow Dance.

Penelo is a secret character recruited in the "An Elegant Encounter" quest. Recruiting her also lets the player recruit Vaan. The player must be at the end of the game, right before the last quest: "The Ritual." At this point the player must head for Fluorgis. An event bubble appears that lets the party meet Al-Cid, and afterwards Penelo will join. After recruiting her, another event bubble will appear on the same map. Winning the battle has Vaan join the party.

Penelo's unique job is Dancer, though she now has the degenerating dances of the Final Fantasy Tactics Dancer rather than the healing dances from Revenant Wings. She can access viera jobs. To recruit Penelo, the player must be at the last quest before fighting Illua and go to Fluorgis and an event bubble will pop up.

In Fluorgis, Al-Cid Margrace will give a letter for a sky pirate whom the player "knows". Penelo will appear and join the player's clan. The law system views Penelo as a viera, so any laws that affect viera also affect her.
