"You think you die,and that's that?! You think you die an' everything'll be sugar and rainbows?!"
—Sazh to Vanille
"Sazh is a friendly, cheerful man who is never without his curious companions—a chocobo chick and a pair of pistols. He is quick to banter, but also keeps a mature perspective on matters. Uncontrollable events have set him on his current path, but another purpose compels him to walk it."
—Online Description

Sazh Katzroy is a player character from Final Fantasy XIII. He is a middle-aged black man with an afro dressed in tan, and is described as a sympathetic and kind man who is easily moved to tears. After his wife died three years prior to the events of the game, Sazh looked after their six-year old son, Dajh, before he became a l'Cie and was taken by PSICOM. Saving Dajh is Sazh's main motivation in the game.


The baby Chocobo.

Sazh is a professional airship pilot from Cocoon, knowing Lightning from their time spent together serving PSICOM. Prior to the game, Sazh bought a newly hatched baby Chocobo for his son Dajh as a gift during a trip eleven days ago where they cross paths with Jihl. Four days later, he loses his son to Sanctum after he realized he became a l'Cie after finding him. Sazh follows Lightning to meet the Pulse fal'Cie Anima, becoming a l'Cie as a result. After Sazh and Vanille willingly depart from Lightning and Hope at the Vile Peaks, the two become close friends as they travel together.

However, during their visit to Nautilus, talking about Dajh while at the Chocobo ranch, Sazh realized Vanille is hiding something from him prior to them being ambushed by a PSICOM unit led by Jihl Nabaat. After fighting their way to escape their pursuers, Sazh is briefly reunited with his son before he is crystallized right before his eyes. By then, Jihl arrives and reveals that Dajh accidentally became a l'Cie because of Vanille and Fang. Distraught, Sazh pursues Vanille with the intention of killing her. Finding Vanille, he points his gun at her as she insists for him to just shoot her, furious that she thinks he will simply forgive her once she is dead. But after Brynhildr appears moments later, seeing Vanille willing to protect him makes Sazh save her and spurns him to gain control of his Eidolon before he attempted suicide prior to be captured by Jihl, learning from Jihl that the crystallized Dajh is to be placed in Eden as a memorial. This infuriates him as Sazh is rendered unconscious before being taken with Vanille to the Palamecia.

In the TGS '09 trailer, he is seen flying an airship through yellow energy arcs of an unknown fal'Cie to evade PSICOM forces, and later to escape Yaag Rosch in the Proud Clad.

In the final Japanese trailer, Sazh is seen riding on Brynhildr in her Gestalt Mode, seemingly trying to save Vanille, who had been knocked off a platform by a missile while being protected by her Eidolon, Hecatoncheir. After Orphan's defeat, Sazh is reunited with his son, Dajh.
