FINAL FANTASY IX heroine Garnet’s birthday is just a couple days from now, on January 15! Happy birthday to the princess of Alexandria!
”Someday I will be queen, but I will always be myself.”
Shocked and saddened by a sudden change in the actions of her mother, Alexandria’s Queen Brahne, princess Garnet flees Alexandria castle on her 16th birthday. While escaping the castle she encounters the thief Zidane and requests that he “kidnap” her, later taking on the false name Dagger as a means to hide her identity. Although initially unaccustomed to the world outside the castle, through her journey with Zidane and friends, Garnet overcomes numerous hurdles and grows into a person worthy of becoming a queen.
