Ritz Malheur was the female protagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance . She was a friend to Marche after he had just moved into St. Ivalice and was constantly teased for her white hair. After the transformation of St. Ivalice into Ivalice, she fought against Marche and his allies, willing the world to stay the way it was.

During the Dissidian wars, she fought on the side of Cosmos, but didn't wish for the battle to end, enjoying the world of Dissidia. She fought several times with other Cosmos warriors to impair their efforts at ending the conflict, she eventually accepted her fate and went to join Marche Radiuju and the other warriors from her world, but was struck down by Queen Remedi before she could get the chance to apologize. She was also removed from future cycles after the defeat of Chronodia.


Her basic attire is the image shown, except she wields a rapier in battle.

Ritz' first alternate outfit, Vieran Pride is a recolour of her basic appearance, making her look as she did with lighter hair, her costume is also increased in brightness.

Her second alternate outfit, Class Head depicts her in her school uniform as she looked in St. Ivalice in the original game.

Her manikin; Archaic Aide is purple.
