Adelle, real name Adelaide, is a character in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. She is a famed thief, known by her nickname "Adelle the Cat" due to her agility and swiftness. Upon Luso's arrival in Ivalice, she befriends the stranger and travels together with him. She reluctanly held great inherited power as a Heritor.

During the Dissidian Wars she remained neutral as she was not interested in helping anyone but herself. However, upon seeing Illua, she regained some memory and stalked her in hopes of reviving more. She succeeded in regaining her inherited Heritor memories and challenged Illua. The ensuing battle was however unclear in the victor as the cycle restarted and they were removed in their damaged states.


Adelle’s basic attire is based off of her appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics A2. In all her costumes, during EX Mode Adelle wields the TipTapTwo (A Heritor's Dagger) and her clothing flaps as if caught in a wind.

Her alternative costume 'Possessed Slave' is a pallete swap which colours her clothing darker and blanks her eyes reflecting her brief period of being possessed by Illua.

Her 3rd costume 'Thief's Disguise' dresses Adelle in a generic Tactics A2 Thief's uniform.

The DLC costume 'Adelle the Cat' dresses her in a pink and yellow jumpsuit/catsuit fitting her thief name.

Adelle’s manikin 'Archaic Heritor' is Light Gold


A Force Drainer, Adelle uses Thief and Seer based skills as her arsenal, her movement speed and attack speed are both fast but she lacks attack strength. Her move pool is also quite limited until she gains her EX Mode where her move pool doubles. For this reason, like Gabranth, Adelle focuses on reaching EX Mode by stealing EX Force points from opponents to add to her own. Once in EX Mode she can automatically appear by her opponent and can keep herself in EX Mode by continuing to steal from her opponent.
