“Vat's vrong? Never seen anyone rise from the dead before?”


Larkeicus is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time and the Chaos representative of the game in the Dissidian Wars.

He has a speech impediment which causes his "w's" to be pronounced as "'v's", and having a German accent in cutscenes.

In Echoes of Time, he is an elderly Clavat and scholar who lives in The Town. He is friendly to the player at the beginning of the game, and helps them cure Eryll's crystal sickness. Eventually he figures out that they are the "cause" of the old civilization falling and attempts to destroy them. He ends up bringing about his own demise by building The Tower to reach the area where the cause will, according to the prophecy, remove crystals from existence. Then Sherlotta makes him realize that "how could something happen this high in the sky without this tower?" At the end of the game, him and Sherlotta go back to their own time, two-thousand years ago.
