Fujin
"RAGE!"
—Fujin

Fujin (風神 Fūjin) is a character from Final Fantasy VIII, and a member of Balamb Garden's Disciplinary Committee, alongside Raijin and Seifer Almasy. She has silver hair, an eye patch covering her left eye, and uses a chakram in battle. Fujin's most distinguishable trait, however, is her manner of speech. Fujin speaks in one-word sentences, usually shown in all-capitals in the text boxes (e.g. "RAGE!" or "LIAR!"), though later in the game she is seen to speak more prominently, even speaking a full sentence at one point. In the original Japanese release, she spoke completely in kanji characters.

Story

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
"POSSE... We are. We always will be. Because we're a posse, we want to help you. Whatever it takes to fulfill your dream, we're willing to do. But... You're being manipulated, Seifer. You've lost yourself and your dream. You're just eating out of someone's hand. We want the old you back! Since we can't get through to you, all we have now to rely on is Squall! It's sad... Sad that we only have Squall to rely on... Seifer! Are you still gonna keep goin'?"
—Fujin to Seifer, the only time in the game she speaks in full sentences.
Artwork of the "Disciplinary Committee".

Not much is known of Fujin's past, although it is obvious that she was enrolled at Balamb Garden at some point. Also, at some point, she, Raijin, and Seifer Almasy met and formed the Balamb Garden Disciplinary Committee. Rarely seen apart the three would usually bully their fellow students through punishment and detention. Their friendship was such that, when Seifer broke out of the disciplinary room and went rogue, Fujin and Raijin embarked to find him despite the Garden already sending agents to do just that. Since they could not be stopped, Headmaster Cid gave Fujin and Raijin instructions to deliver new orders for Squall's party to Galbadia Garden's Headmaster.

At Galbadia Garden, they did as they were asked and then ran across Squall Leonhart, who informed them that Seifer had been executed for actions against the Galbadian president. Not believing that Seifer would go down that way the two immediately embarked for Deling City; the capital of Galbadia.
It is unknown when exactly the three reunited but, as Seifer was now the Knight of Sorceress Edea, Fujin and Raijin became Generals of the Galbadian army to support Seifer. Assisting in the search for Ellone the two encounter Squall again in Balamb Town during a Galbadian-induced lock-down where-upon Squall soundly defeated them but let them leave peacefully.

They are once again seen in Galbadia Garden but decide not to fight Squall and the others. Some time after the defeat of Sorceress Edea the two once again assist Seifer as he embarks on resurrecting the Lunatic Pandora. However even as they do the two begin to admit that Seifer was no longer the friend they once knew and, when Squall once again arrived to stop the three, they allowed Squall to confront Seifer where Fujin made an emotional plea for him to stop what he was doing. In response, Seifer claimed that it is too late to go back, and wishes them a good life, before he fights Squall one last time.

After Squall and his party go into the future to defeat Ultimecia, the two are seen fishing together with Seifer; having returned to being the friend they remember him being.


Battle

Main article: Fujin (Boss)

Fujin is fought against twice in the game. First in Balamb Town and second in the Lunatic Pandora. Both times she utilizes a chakra-type weapon, called Missile Blade, in combat and uses Wind para-magic. The Guardian Force Pandemona can be drawn from her in battle.

"Cakewalk."
—Fuu

A younger Fujin makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts II, along with Seifer, Raijin, and Final Fantasy IX's Vivi. The four together make up the "Twilight Town Disciplinary Committee". She is referred to as "Fuu", and continues to speak using as little words as possible, though what she says is no longer in all capitals. She, along with Seifer and Raijin, sees Sora as a rival at first, but once he saves them from the Nobodies the trio becomes more respectful towards him. Noticeably her eye is not covered by a patch, instead covered by long bangs.

Fujin is voiced by Rio Natsuki in the Japanese version. In the English release, she is voiced by Jillian Bowen.


Etymology

Fujin is the name of the Japanese wind god; however, the correct spelling is Fuujin (Fūjin). Fitting, because Fujin uses Wind-based attacks, and any Wind-based attacks or magic will heal her. It is also from her that the player is able to draw the game's Wind-type summon, Pandemona.

In Chinese Buddhism, a legend states that Fuujin and Raijin were both originally evil demons who opposed Buddha. They were captured in battle with Buddha's army of heaven, and have worked as gods since then.

Trivia

  • Fujin, along with Raijin, was initially designed to appear in Final Fantasy VII however the inclusion of the Turks saw their presence unnecessary and they were shelved until Final Fantasy VIII.
