Coldrun Gaming: FFXII – Part The Mist Burns Away
Really, if the relationship between Balthier and Ashe could have been far the same amount of. but made me incredibly happy anyway XDD Take The Quiz!. Test chapter for SURVEYORS OF THE PAST: Invisible Sun - please read that if Balthier and Penelo agree to keep thier relationship a secret from the others. Balthier and Ashe have barely any chemisty lol. weren't hinting anything than frienship (plus Vaan and Penelo's relationship was pretty clear.
During the Imperial occupation Reks signed up as a light infantry soldier. When King Raminas agreed to a peace treaty and left for Nalbina Fortress to sign it, word arrived that the treaty signing was but a conspiracy to murder him.
Reks was sent to the fortress, his squadron being led by Captain Basch fon Ronsenburg of the Order of the Knights. Reks was fatally wounded by what appeared to be Basch who had murdered the king. Reks's witness testimony led to Basch's conviction for high treason and he was announced executed, while Vaan looked after the increasingly unresponsive Reks in a hospital in his final moments.
In the manga, Vaan later tells Reks was tortured to death by the Empire to force a confession for co-conspiring the King's death.
Vaan watches an airship fly overhead. Believing his brother to have been murdered by not only Captain Basch, but also at the fault of the Archadian Empire, Vaan vows vengeance. He lives in Lowtown with Penelo and the other war orphans and spends his days slaying rats in the Garamsythe Waterway, carrying out menial tasks for the sundry shop owner, Migeloand pick-pocketing the Archadian troops stationed in Rabanastre, rationalizing it as reclaiming the wealth Archadia is stealing.
He chances upon the Goddess's Magicite and runs into the sky pirates Balthier and Fran who demand he hand over the object. Not knowing its true power but guessing it to be valuable, Vaan makes a run for it when the Resistance attacks the palace and the Imperial airship Ifrit repels the insurgence. Vaan attacks Vayne, but is stopped by Gabranth. As told in the manga, during his escape Vaan overhears Vayne speaking to Judge Gabranth and spies on them overseeing the battle.
He is caught and brought before Vayne who mocks his rage. Vaan tells the two his brother was killed at Nalbina Fortress, and Vayne invites Vaan to attack him.
Vaan lunges but is blocked by Gabranth. Vaan is taken away by the guards, Vayne ordering him executed for attempted assault on an Archadian official.
As Vaan is carried off the guards are intercepted by Balthier who continues to pursue Vaan and throws him over a bridge to Fran's hoverbike before following suit. The vehicle's power is drained by Vaan's Goddess's Magicite and crashes in the Garamsythe Waterway, the city's sewer system that was exposed during an attack from Ifrit. Vaan teams up with Balthier and Fran to find a way out.
Balthier surmises Vayne staged the dinner to lure the Resistance out of hiding and trap them using the Imperial fleet. They encounter a Resistance fighter named Amalia cornered by Imperial Guards.
Vaan runs to her aid, and following the ensuing battle, Amalia joins the party briefly though she scorns at Vaan's thievery from the palace. Upon reaching the Waterway's exit they battle a Firemane. In the manga they are accosted by Judge Ghis and Vaan attacks him but is knocked out.

Ghis takes Amalia captive onboard Dreadnought Leviathan while the others are sent to Nalbina Dungeons. In the game the party is confronted by Vayne himself.
Nevertheless, Penelo spots Vaan, Balthier and Fran being led away in chains and approaches them in tears, but Balthier soothes her. In the manga, Vaan awakens in the dungeons and intervenes on a seeq prisoner attacking a former Dalmascan soldier, but has the Goddess's Magicite stolen from him. Balthier tries to teach Vaan why he lost by challenging him to a game of coin toss where Vaan must guess which of Balthier's hands he holds it. For a wrong guess Balthier wants Vaan's chestpiece from Reks, but Vaan demands Balthier wager his airship.
Balthier tosses the coin and Vaan fails at guessing its location with Fran returning and revealing she has the coin and Balthier's hands are empty. Gabranth authorizes the bounty hunter Ba'Gamnan to search the prisoners for Balthier, and Fran reveals she has found an exit.
In the manga, Balthier decides to make their move in two hours after investigating the Resistance, and Vaan declares to have recovered the Goddess's Magicite by that time. He finds the seeq who stole it but is ambushed by two more.
Vaan is thrown into a cell until the seeq, Daguzais ready to face him in arena. Carver has discovered their secret and Hawke's mother has other plans for Marian.
