Vaan appears as the hero representing Final Fantasy XII. He is a fairly new addition to the cycles of war, and offers naive but heartfelt comments on the events putting him at odds with Lightning. Vaan finds Terra and is forced to fight her to defend himself when she attacks him. He later sees her being tortured by Kefka, and helps her escape when he realizes she isn't fighting for Chaos willingly, assuming a role similar to Terra's compatriot Locke in Final Fantasy VI.
Explaining he doesn't care about her allegiance and just wanted to help, Vaan asks Terra to hide until he can take her to Cosmos and have her turn Terra into one of her warriors, which she later becomes. Vaan accompanies the others to the Lands of Discord and sacrifices himself to seal the portal to The Void the manikins are emerging from.
Vaan's first alternate outfit is based on his Yoshitaka Amano art, giving him a dark gray and black version of his base outfit. His second alternate outfit is his Tactics A2 attire, a light blue shirt under his vest with different pants. As a bonus fourth outfit available for download, Vaan wears an original design by Final Fantasy XII character designer Akihiko Yoshida, dressing as a traditional sea pirate with a pirate hat and blue and white boots and a coat.
Vaan is indirectly mentioned in a Mognet letter sent by Sablé. It talks about Penelo, her work ethics as the "item shop girl from Rabanastre" and her personality when Sablé discovered she was kidnapped by a bangaa. The mail is a tease to Vaan because Sablé was comparing him to Penelo.
- Watching You, Kupo
You understand, right? Right, kupo? The item shop girl at Rabanastre is a hard worker with a sunny disposition. That brat friend of hers should learn from her, kupo. I hope she comes back safely, kupo...

An orphan boy living in what remains of the Kingdom of Dalmasca after the empire's invasion. He aspires to be one of the sky pirates who rule the skies in their airships. While on the hunt for treasure to steal, he finds instead the Dalmascan princess, believed by all to have died during the war. Joining Ashe in her plans to free their homeland, he will give his aid in her battle against overwhelming powers.
Vaan appears as a default playable character.
Vaan possesses the highest raw luck of all playable characters, which not only ensures reducing the chances of being damaged should a player perform badly in music stages, but also increases the chances of obtaining rare items afterwards. Putting Vaan in the party almost always guarantees a rare item is obtained, and as most of his abilities focus on increasing his luck, Vaan is best used in Dark Notes or more difficult music stages to obtain even better items.
His Limit, Pyroclasm, deals damage to boss-type enemies in direct proportion to Strength, Magic and Level.

- No. 146: "A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. He lost his elder brother in the war with the Archadian Empire and was left alone in the world. He lives in the slums of the Royal City of Rabanastre, the capital of Dalmasca, and makes ends meet by doing odd jobs for a shopkeeper named Migelo—and by stealing from the Archadians who occupy the city. Though he hates the empire, which took both his brother and his homeland from him, it is not enough to inspire him to any greater action. He drifts through his days with only vague dreams of becoming a sky pirate to keep him moving."
- No. 147: "A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. He lost his elder brother, his only family left in the world, during the war with the Archadian Empire. The desire for vengeance within him remains nebulous, channeled into nothing more than petty thieving. He decides to sneak into the Archadian-occupied palace to "take back" some of the Dalmascan wealth that the Archadian forces have seized. This is how he meets Ashe, the crown princess of his fallen country, and the sky pirate Balthier. This is how his journey with them begins."
- No. 148: "A young man who appears in tales of Ivalice, a world foreign to this one. After meeting the princess of his fallen homeland, he began a journey to Dalmasca of its occupiers. It took a long time for him to accept the death of his brother, who was painted as a traitor after dying in service to their homeland. But by coming to know Basche, a knight also entangled in the plots surrounding his brother, and making a connection with Ashe, who has similarly lost so many she loved, he finally learns to move onward to the future.
