Amano Ricard
Ricard Highwind is a Cosmos Warrior from Final Fantasy II, who is among Firion's companions. Firion and his party helped Ricard defeat the Roundworm to escape the Leviathan and joined afterwards.


His base outfit is the one shown, from his artwork in II.

His first alternate costume is a more simplistic version of his base outfit, similar to his Dawn of Souls artwork.

His second alternate outfit is his NES sprite, wearing mostly brown and blue, with a helmet similar to his mugshot from the NES game, only colored brown and blue instead of purple and red.

His Manikin, Imitation Survivor, is yellow.
