Edgar's twin brother.
When Sabin learns that Figaro has broken its alliance with the Gestahlian Empire, he goes to fight at his brother's side.
Rarely seen without Edgar, Sabin is a playable character who could first be recruited during the Challenge Event A Fateful Coin Toss, Ascension and Freedom alongside his brother. The pair appeared later in Forgotten Bond, and Sabin alone was recruitable after accepting the Bonus Quest "Complete Mt. Kolts Elite (VI)" and completing it while the Quest system was in force. Both brothers appeared again in Two Sides of a Coin.
Sabin is a Monk whose combat role is Physical Attack.
Perhaps in homage to his origins and his celebrated status, Sabin remains one of the strongest Monks in the game, having the highest HP for a class that includes the not-quite-so-famous Galuf, Josef, Refia, Zell, and Snow; his other stats are well-aligned with those mentioned. His only current drawback is that a few of his Unique Soul Breaks are elemental.

Twin brother to Edgar, prince of Figaro, his distaste for the struggle of succession led him to leave his homeland at the age of seventeen. Strict training under the martial artist Duncan transformed a boy into a man strong of body and passionate of mind, and after reuniting with his brother, at Mt. Kolts, he swears to join the fight against their common foe, the Empire."
