“Why is that girl having a boy`s name?”
Final Fantasy V (ファイナルファンタジーSims) is the fifth game of the Final Fantasy-series. It followed the story of four hippies who saves the world (again), this time from a suicidal oak. Final Fantasy V was praised by gamers and critics alike for its Totally Awesomely Mega-Rockin' Job System™, which finally introduced the Holy Grail feature of '90s gameplay: the ability to have and keep...a Job.
In the early 90's, Square was very aware that the european and american conveyor-gamers wouldn't understand the beauty of their games, so Final Fantasy V met the same fate that Final Fantasy II, III and IV did; no one was interested on translating it. This, once again, gave free hands to the developers of the game to make a game that would challenge the bounds of a human mind with a combination of drama, romance and macho men.
edit The Characters
Bartz - The main protagonist of the game. His father, Dorgann, was one of the legendary Four Farmers of Dawn, who originally planted Ex-Death into ground. Bartz never had a chance to tell that to his friends at school, because Dorgann died tragically when Bartz`s pet-chocobo Boko ate him. After that tragical happening, Bartz started to train Boko as Bartz`s personal pack mule and soonly forgot his father.
Galuf - An old grandup person from another dimension. He and his hometown crashed one day when a meteor crashed surprisingly, which made him to forget everything. Or that`s what he thinks, he actually doesn't remember if that is the case.
Reina/Lenna - the daughter of King Tycoon itself, who almost flattered by that meteor. Reina is an emotionless cold hearted idiot who can`t understand that she is a princess of one kingdom, and still she wants to kill some stupid useless tree with stupid useless people.
Faris - Now, before everyone is going to say that Faris is transexual pirate, I want everyone to know that she`s a girl. It was a surprise for me that everyone thought she was boy, as I always knew even from the beginning that she`s girl. Maybe a bit complicated, but who ever said that Final Fantasies aren`t?
Krile - is the daughter of Galuf. She has the unique ability to speak to animals, like moogles, chocobos, and dragons, which `tough is nonimportant as you kill them anyway.
ExDeath - a tree who, very long time ago, was pissed on by an evil wizard. This made the tree evil as well. For some reason, Exdeath eventually got a human body, but had a horribly disfigured face which had to be hidden by a mask.
