So after playing through FSIII again, I just realized that they never expand on that shadowy translucent character that is introduced with Luphiel. It's basically like, he mentions how
How strong/weak is he really? Considering you never get to fight him with Luze either, he just kinda gets his ass beat.
After this point, he doesn't appear for the rest of the story as far as I can tell, not even in post-game (unless he's supposed to be one of those secret super-bosses that I never fought like
). His character design looks kinda foreign to me too, closest maybe to Hein? But not to anyone else who appears in the story.
I suppose really I'm just wondering who he was supposed to be, whether he had any real impact in the story that I may have missed, and maybe if his role was originally planned to be bigger than it currently is?
