An exceptionally talented young woman who became SeeD in fewer years than anyone before her. As Squall's assigned instructor, Quistis feels a personal responsibility for him.
—Character Profile

Quistis is a playable character who could be recruited during the Challenge Event A Planted SeeD. She was available via two separate Quests shortly thereafter: "Complete Shores of Wisdom - Hard" on November 15, 2015; and "Complete Dollet Classic (VIII)" through the system's retirement. She was reissued in A Meeting Beyond Time, Rains of Ruin, and A Special Place as well.


Quistis is a SeeD. Her combat role is Physical/Magic Hybrid.

For reasons as yet undetermined, this game will turn a Blue Mage into a Black Mage of one sort or another, and Quistis is no exception to this rule, becoming a high-level Black Mage and leaving the Blue Magic for Soul Breaks. She has above-average Attack and Magic as well as average Resistance and Speed, but low defensive stats. Absent Rinoa, Irvine, and Edea, she can take on many different roles. As a rare whip-wielding ally who can also ignore distance, Quistis may also aid the party by stalling an enemy for a few turns.

Quistis' default Soul Break is Electrocute which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals lightning magic damage to one target. The whip Sleipnir's Tail (VIII) allows Quistis to use Maser Eye which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals non-elemental magic damage to all enemies. The whip Red Scorpion (VIII) grants access to the Super Soul Break Mighty Guard (VIII), which for one Soul Gauge segment buffs the party with Shellga and Hastega, also adding major Regen for a period of time; and upon its mastery, Quistis' Magic is raised by 10 points.

After increasing Quistis' level cap, it unlocks the Record Materia Keen Eye, which increases the damage dealt by 10% upon hitting an enemy's weakness.


Quistis can equip the following weapon types: daggers, rods, staves, and whips. The whip Sleipnir's Tail (VIII) allows Quistis to use Maser Eye. The whip Red Scorpion (VIII) unlocks Mighty Guard (VIII).

She can equip the following armor types: hats, light armor, robes, and bracers.

She can equip accessories.

Who's Who
CV: Kristina Pesic / Miyuki Sawashiro
Age in Grimoire: 18
Notes: Lass in glasses / Secret agent / Cautious and calculating / Generous enough to give away a fastcraft / Not generous enough to include a parachute
A Cunning Strategist
Quistis is a wily and worldly woman who knows just what's needed to grease the wheels of the political machine. When it came time to investigate Icicle Ridge, she immediately readied a juicy bribe for the thane—the fastcraft—but quickly shifted strategies in light of new information. While you might think her capricious for this, that is most certainly not the case. Quistis merely reallocated her resources to where they would do the most good. Once she learned Reynn and Lann were the Jiants from the Hills, she considered the prophecies and decided that helping the twins progress was a more productive course of action.

Quistis Legend of Mana

In Shiro Amano's manga adaptation, Quistis Trepe gets a recurring cameo as the main character's idol and fanboy obsession, but in the original translation her name was mistranslated into "Kistis Tulip". The manga's main character, Toto, collects everything involving her, including fake autographed photos and life-sized dolls. He even attempts to defeat three evil dragons with the request of meeting Quistis in person as payment.
