A member of the Militesi nobility and a brigadier general in the imperial army, Qator Bashtar serves as Marshal Aulstyne's right-hand man--but not, perhaps, without some reservations. Nevertheless, General Bashtar is the finest MA pilot in the empire, and he often assists in the development of new models by testing them out himself. In spite of his rank, he also accompanies his men out on the front lines, often turning the tide with his own two hands. His military prowess has earned him several epithets, such as "White Thunder," "the White Reaper," and "the Unscathed."
Qator is the Brigadier General of the Militesi Empire and is a proud, blond-haired, light-blue eyed soldier who wears a patch over his left eye. He can often be found fighting on the front line, wielding a sword in one hand and a pistol in the other, and is also known to be an expert magitek armor pilot. According to the Rubicus, Qator is 28 years old and 6'3" tall.
In Final Fantasy Agito, Qator assists with Akademeia's invasion.
Just before war broke out in Orience, the empire devised a three-part campaign to invade the dominion. The first phase was Operation Solar Eclipse, in which Brigadier General Qator Bashtar would lead a blitzkrieg attack on the Vermilion Peristylium from the ocean. Accompanied by the provisional First Airmobile Force and a l'Cie-piloted magitek armor, the general's objective was to force Akademeia to surrender. While the empire succeeds in conquering most of the dominion, Akademeia and thus the Vermilion Bird Crystal were protected by Class Zero. Afterward, the dominion begins its long campaign to reclaim the conquered areas.
During Rubrum and Concordia's joint attack on Togoreth Stronghold, Qator slaughters many of the opposing soldiers with his new flying magitek armor Gabriel before confronting Class Zero. He is forced to fall back after fighting them. When Class Zero infiltrates the imperial magitek factory and face off against the White Tiger Crystal l'Cie Nimbus, a ceasefire is called as the Fabula Pact has been invoked between the empire, Concordia and Rubrum. Qator delivers the news to Nimbus and the cadets, saying all combat operations must halt and anyone who violates the pact is executed. The cadets give up the battle but are puzzled a ceasefire with such terms was called at a time Rubrum had deliberately deployed them for a sabotage mission to imperial territory.
When Class Zero arrives at the capital of Militesi, Ingram, Qator attacks them head on in his Magitek mecha Gabriel before learning that an Ultima Bomb secretly installed into the Gabriel. Refusing to allow the city to be destroyed, Qator takes the bomb into the atmosphere and jettisons it. However, the Gabriel was damaged from the fight and thus was unable to escape the explosion.
