Hmm... good question.Was thinking of a new topic of discussion to keep the thread going, so I'm curious to know which of the playable cast is your favorite character, excluding Terra?
I think I'd have to say Shadow is my favorite character. I like how we have this inexplicable badass ninja and his dog in a steampunk world and that despite his fearsome reputation, he still goes up and helps the Returners despite not getting much in return (though he does leave them time and time again). I love how his backstory shaped him into who he is at the beginning of the story as well as his relationship with Relm and his dog Interceptor.
The fact that he's a pretty decent party member as well also helps.
I do like the Figaro bros, Locke, Shadow, Celes, and Mog to name a few.
I think I will have to say Celes for the development she gets throughout the story. While Terra is my favorite overall, I did like Celes in the second half of the game.
