Venat

Final Fantasy XII

Antagonist


Voice Actor: Anita Carey
Age: N/A

Venat is a member of the Occuria, a race which effectively act as Gods in the world of Ivalice. However, Venat differs from its contemporaries, as it believes that the citizens of Ivalice should have control of their own destiny - the other Occuria believe that they should have their actions dictated to them.

Because of its views, Venat decides to take action. Using its power, Venat can actually take over and influence the actions of others. This is first seen when the group encounter Mjrn in the Henne Mines, and later when Judge Bergan is encountered at Mt. Bur-Omisace. However, Venat finds a kindred spirit with Dr. Cid.

Siding With The Empire

Due to Venat's connections with Dr. Cid, it could be seen that Venat sided with the Empire. However, its sole purpose was to try and destroy the Sun-Cryst - the object that effectively represents the Occuria's power over the inhabitants of Ivalice.

Venat is often seen having conversations with Dr. Cid, about mankind and science. However, Venat, while using Dr. Cid, does eventually achieve its objective. During a confrontation at the Pharos at Ridorana, Dr. Cid is killed, but the Sun-Cryst is destroyed by Reddas.

With its objective complete, Venat decides to accompany Vayne Solidor on board the Sky Fortress Bahamut. No longer neededing its immortal life, Venat ties its fate to that of Vayne when they create The Undying. When it is defeated by Vaan and his group, Venat disappears and ceases to exist.
