Flowchart Shows Heroes Of Final Fantasy IV Before And During The After Years

By Spencer . February 23, 2011 . 2:33pm

Amazon Japan posted a handy chart that shows all of the major characters from Final Fantasy IV and how they developed ten years later in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.



The Kingdom of Baron has a few new faces like Luca, the daughter of King Giott who is working under Cid as an apprentice, and most notably Cecil’s son Ceodore. Yang also has a child. His daughter Ursula is the princess of Fabul. While Porom is a leader in Mystdia, Palom left his home (i.e. he’s not in the orange circle) with Leonora, a magic user from the Earth Crystal kingdom of Troia. No kingdom has as many new characters as Eblan. Edge, now the land’s king, travels with a group of ninja known as the Eblan Four. During the intervening years, Damcyan was rebuilt and Edward rules the land along with his secretary Harley.


Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection has a new scenario called the "Interlude" which covers the time gap between the two games.


Square Enix has Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection slated for April 19 in North America.

  • Cant wait for the complete collection, i never finished FF4 for the DS ._. dunno why

    • irzbos

      could it be because of how emo cecil was as a main character? Only edge and rydia got me through that game.

      • AnimusVox

        Yeah I never cared for Cecil either, for me part of it was his character design. But I like Rydia and Edge as well.

        • Bakuryukun

          I liked Cecil, of course Kain is my favourite Video Game character ever so, he gets destoryed in that department anyways. I think some people are too quick to cry Emo with video game characters these days. ONLY HAPPY/ANGRY CHARACTERS ARE REAL, NO SADNESS ALLOWED. >=(

    Might pick this up. As hyped as I was for FF4 DS, I ended up hating the game, enjoying the GBA port much better. Never got to playing The After Years either so all I need is a nice Special Edition to talk myself into buying it ^^

  • I’d so want to make sprite comics with those sprites. D:

  • Eduard is called Gilibert in Japan?

  • Hours

    I’m so excited for this game!

  • A handy chart if you can read Japanese :D But this would be a cool bonus for the European package.

  • Joanna

    I wonder how long the Interlude will be. I mean are they going to give each character some time (i.e. you get to play as them), or just mention most in passing and focus on Cecil, Rosa, and Kain? The former would be a lot better…but the latter seems more likely.
