Amarant Coral is an enigmatic fellow, with not too much known about him. Known as The Flaming Amarant, he seems to be feared in Treno, sending some people who know of his name running away. After meeting up with Zidane, he questions the thief’s motives, opting to follow him instead of carrying out his mission. Despite his nature, Amarant does seem to fight with honor.

One of Amarant’s special commands is Throw, allowing him to toss weapons and specific items at enemies. Note that the items thrown are lost, so be especially careful about throwing the more elusive weapons. His other special command is called Flair, which is just a set of offensive and defensive skills that he can use. The defensive skills are what shine here, as Chakra can heal both HP and MP, Revive is for the obvious, and Aura allows both Auto-Life and Regen. Amarant’s Trance turns Flair into Elan, basically turning all of those skills into multi-target ones.

A group known as the Tantalus Theatre Troupe visits the kingdom of Alexandria to celebrate the birthday of Princess Garnet. Unbeknownst to the royal family and the citizens of the city, the troupe is actually a band of thieves, who are aiming to kidnap the princess. However, to add a twist, the princess was planning on escaping the castle all along, even asking the troupe to "kidnap" her. This little event kickstarts many others, leading to a grand adventure.
