Final Fantasy IV: The After Years Character

Izayoi (十六夜) is one of the Eblan Four in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, and is known as Izayoi of Water. She is a kunoichi who always views battle in a calm and collected manner. At times, she is known to make use of her other fascinating assets, though she views herself as a Ninja first, a woman second.



When Eblan receives word of Baron stealing Crystals from the other nations, the Eblan Four become eager to assist Edge, and they are sent on missions to gather information. Izayoi disguise herself as an Epopt trainee in Troia. There she learn that the Epopts has constructed a tower to train their ranks into combat. Izoyoi returns to Eblan in the ship that brought Palom to Troia. She reunites with Edge and the other Eblan Four within the Tower of Babil and after beign forced to escape from the Mysterious Girl and Ifrit they fall to the Underworld and into the Falcon.

In the Gathering Tale, Izoyoi watches over Leonora, Palom and the other incapacitated characters below the Falcon's deck. During the ending, she is seen again impersonating an Epopt trainee, where she giggles at Leonora's upcoming announcement. In the end she and the other Ninja Guard of Eblan renew their vows of loyalty to Edge awaiting for their next mission.

Equipment and Stats

Izayoi's stats are mediocre, and she is one of the weakest physical fighters of the Eblan Four, specializing mostly in healing. But her stats and abilities for this are easily surpassed by any White Mage. She is right-handed and can only use most basic Ninja equipment.

She can also equip katanas, boomerangs, whips, and bows. Although most effective with the latter two.


Compared to the other Ninjas, she learns the most healing Ninjutsu, with a total of three. However, none of which can be cast on multiple targets, and are weaker than the most high leveled White Magic. Of the other four ninja, only Edge and Tsukinowa learn any healing moves. Her other ability Illusions can confuse enemies, but is not anymore effective than a simple Confuse spell.
