Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers character
"Agents of the light, or children of the dark. In reality, we're neither, nothing special."
—Layle

Layle is the protagonist of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers. He is a Clavat (although it seems that he is more welcome among the Selkie tribe) who, unlike other Clavats, possesses a very unique trait. Layle is a Crystal Bearer, someone who is born with a Crystal shard inside their body; this crystal provides Layle with gravity-based telekinetic powers. When the story begins, Layle is already well-known for his abilities and takes on jobs as a mercenary for hire.

"Leave it to me."
—Layle

As the game opens, Layle is on what he calls a boring escort mission, guarding the enormous new passenger airship, the Alexis, on its maiden voyage. However, what seems like a passive mission quickly becomes more dangerous than expected as a pack of Zu mysteriously appear, poised to attack the ship. Layle leaps off his escort ship, armed with a large gun, and demonstrates his bearer powers for the first time - using his gravity-based telekinesis to hold his weapon, as well as levitate towards the Alexis' deck. Once on deck, Layle confronts the Yuke Amidatelion before using his power to bring the Alexis safely to the ground. Soon after landing, Layle becomes a wanted man when he saves Belle, a selkie thief he first encountered on the Alexis, from Lilty guards with the use of his powers which have been banned in civilized areas. After escaping the guards he then pursues Amidatelion, the yuke responsible for sabotaging the Alexis' voyage, with the help of his friend Kiess. Amidatelion eventually reveals her true intentions and persuades Layle to help her restore the crystal principle and in turn revive the yuke tribe. When meeting Princess Althea, Layle learned the fate of her father that she had been hiding from the people and later uncovered it to be the deed of Lilty Jegran as he infiltrated the Aerial Prison to save the Selkie Guild from him. After meeting Amidatelion, who sacrificed himself to save him from Jegran, Layle took the Yuke's death personally as he battled Jegran while he purposely restored the Yuke Crystal. But as he defeated Jegran, seeing the Yukes arriving to stop their curse on the Lilty Crystal, Layle is grabbed by the Lilty who intended to kill him with the fall. However, Layle managed to escape Jegran's final attempt on his life and departed for parts unknown.


Abilities

Layle using his power mid-air.

Layle uses his gravity-based telekinetic abilities to lift, manipulate, and toss enemies, objects (cacti, statues, treasure chests, fireworks, switches, coffins, and various foods for example) and even people. Occasionally, lifting and/or tossing people causes gil to fall from their pockets; unfortunately, this behavior often attracts nearby guards and can cost Layle some of his own gil.

When his powers are enhanced by a crystal reactor, his body crystallizes far beyond just his cheek. He gains the ability to fly at high speed and his crystal bearer powers greatly increases, allowing him to rip turrets off of battleships and destroy previously formidable enemies in a single swipe. A wing-like crystal also forms above his cheek's crystal, but seems to lack any function.

Layle is also able to use his powers to manipulate standard weaponry such as swords, cannons, etc. However he never actually wields any weapons directly, save the machine gun he uses to shoot a myriad of Zu as he falls through the sky in the opening sequence of the game.
