That question got me thinking... Was Vayne only a puppet ? Or was he using Venat to achieve his goals ?

Being a skilled swordsman, Reddas' only defeat was against Gilgamesh, who stole his Masamune. Respected between pirates by helping Balfonheim's development and promoting cooperation, he has been known as Sky Pirate's Leader.

I dont think there was a true villain in FFXII.

Neither Venat nor Vayne can be seen, in my opinion, as true villains although they both have ruthless and destructive qualities. One could even argue that the Occuria (apart from Venat) are the true villains - they would have made Ashe destroy the Empire which would have lead to the death of countless innocent civilians - or even (although that'd really be stretching things) that Ashe almost became the true villain.

I went Vayne. Maybe I didn't understand the story, but it seemed to me that Venat spent most of its time with Dr. Cid. It was only in the end that a link between Venat and Vayne was established. In addition, several times, Vayne mentions previous wrong-doings. "My hands are stained with blood, I see no reason to stay them now." (Or whatever.) He was pretty much evil anyways.

People say Vayne and Venat were buddies and doing everything together. Bleh. What a boring twist.

i like that its very nearly Ashe who is the villain, shes lucky she met Fran, Balthier and Basch who seem to hold her back a bit, and Vaan and Penelo who are a good influence on her. She grows a lot thru the game, definately an interesting character even if she isn't the most lovable
But i think if she did go to the dark side then the only one who would stand by her then would be Basch, cos honestly he's very loyal to her and hasn't really got anything to loose

The main antagonist is Vayne, but I would call him a villain as much as I would call him a hero. He has qualities of both.
