Vayne Carudas Solidor was the main antagonist of Final Fantasy XII. He was the third son of Archadia's Emperor and part of House Solidor. His aim throughout the game was to create an empire while restructuring a world he saw as irreparably flawed.
During the Dissidian Wars, Vayne allied himself with fellow strategist Emperor Mateus, and controlled his loyal warrior Gabranth to fight in his place against the Cosmos Warriors. However, upon Gabranth's realiastion of the war's futility, Vayne was slain by him...
Vayne's base attire is based on his FF12 Appearance, a dark-green uniform, white gloves, a sleeveless armor with gold armlets, winged shoulders and gold knee-pads.

A Magicite Monk, Vayne fights by knocking his opponents around and pulling them with him as he moves, thus restricting his opponent’s movement. While many of his main attacks are close range he has several long-range attacks to throw and stun opponents from a distance, allowing him to catch up to them. His main weakness is that as a fist fighter his attacks are mainly close-range and he is a slow ground runner so he has to rely on restricting his opponent.
