In the Japanese version, there is a large cutout in the center of the teddy.

Personality[]

Unacceptable.

Agnès's trademark words.

Agnès is a polite, motherly young woman; she is slow to open up to others, though once she does is a kind, if reticent, person. She generally does not participate in the group's more casual conversations and can be blunt or aloof when the need arises. She is intent on her role as a vestal and is not originally keen on letting others accompany her on the notion that bringing light to the crystals is her sole mission; she does not want other people to be burden to her or be burdened with her problems.

Agnès is quiet, reserved, does not show her emotions or worries readily, and has trouble admitting them to herself. She holds people at a distance and mistrusts others, for some time even her own allies Edea and Ringabel. She seems to hold Tiz in much higher esteem, and is also very protective of him. She worries that the townsfolk see her as a mere object to enact her duty as vestal rather than as a human being, and though she is composed on the exterior, admits to being terrified of others.

While she chastises Edea for her rash behavior, Agnès's biggest flaws are in her naivete and shortsightedness. Agnès does not seem to value her own life, often playing the role of martyr for the sake of others and committing unpleasant acts, feeling that it is her duty. A good example of this naivete and lack of world experience is her confusion regarding what a bow is, how to utilize one or her dismal sense of direction.

At first, Agnès is socially inept, practical, and has difficulty communicating with others due to her extremely sheltered upbringing, which she longs to return to. She also struggles to be the leader her companions need her to be, though in the end comes to prove herself to both her companions and the whole of Luxendarc. While normally the most level-headed and pragmatic of the group, she is not above anger or rage, to the surprise of others.

Upon learning of the Crystal Orthodoxy's history and wrongdoings, she becomes confused about her goals and allegiances, and comes to resent her own loyalties due to the part they have played in allowing her to be manipulated by Airy, for which she desperately seeks to atone. This confusion seems to have stuck, as having completed her tasks as the Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy, she ultimately relinquishes the title, albeit now an infinitely more mature and wiser woman.

Story[]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Bravely Default[]

Agnès Oblige praying before the Wind Crystal is consumed in darkness.

When the Wind Crystal is consumed by darkness, forced to watch her acolytes sacrifice themselves to protect her, Agnès embarks on a quest on the advice of Eloch Quentis Khamer VIII to see the condition of the world. She sets out on a merchant vessel towards Caldisla that becomes waylaid half-way by the sea's sudden deterioration. After being rescued by boats from Caldisla, Agnès investigates the effects of the earthquake that struck shortly after she left Ancheim.

While pursued by the Knights of the Eternian Sky, Agnès encounters Tiz Arrior when she arrives to the site of the Great Chasm. Agnès refuses Tiz's help, as she believes facing adversity on her own is part of her responsibility as vestal of the Wind Crystal. When confronted by white mage Holly Whyte to surrender, she initially agrees. Agnès learns that even though she could give herself up, it would not help anyone else. Agnès distrusts Edea when she joins the party, and learns of her full connection with the Eternian forces. She becomes furious to learn Edea is the daughter of the council's leader, Braev Lee, after the death of her fellow vestal and friend Olivia Oblige at the hands of Victoria F. Stein.

After restoring the crystals and bringing Airy to the Pillar of Light, Agnès finds herself in another world and meets the Sage Yulyana of the second world who asks her to bring her most trusted companion to meet him in private. Choosing Tiz, Agnès learns of the Sage's past as a former high-ranking member of the Crystal Orthodoxy and how he and Lord DeRosso forged their alliance when an "angel" resembling Agnès appeared before them. Sage relays the angel's words of great evil and the nature of the crystals in relation to the "Harrowing" and the wind vestal's journey. Encountering other denizens of the second world, Agnès learns the dark secrets of the Crystal Orthodoxy, which were the motivation for the Anticrystalist movement.

After they end up in another world, Ringabel suggests consulting the sage again as he knows the events of the previous world would happen again, including the time Tiz and Agnès spoke to the Sage alone. During the second trip alone with Tiz, Agnès learns that Airy is evil and has been manipulating them. When Tiz inquires further into the story of the angel, it is revealed her death was caused by Airy's treachery. Though her other selves were unable see the truth until it was too late, Agnès's faith in Tiz allows her to accept the truth of Airy. This leads to Agnès to being more distant towards Airy, yet she continues summoning the Holy Pillar in the hope that each time would be the last.

After the last time Agnès learns that Airy serves Ouroboros and that she orchestrated her master's plan to consume the realities. With the pendant in her possession, Agnès gives her group the advantage and they destroy Ouroboros. After returning to her world, Agnès rebuilds the temple of the wind and enlists new acolytes to assist her in restoring the crystals and overseeing them.

Bravely Second: End Layer[]

Agnès as the Pope.

After learning the truth of her faith's corruption, Agnès becomes the newly inaugurated Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy and purges it of its corruption while forming relations with Eternia. During the peace signing between the Orthodoxy and the Duchy of Eternia, Agnès is kidnapped by Kaiser Oblivion and held captive in the Glanz Empire's sky fortress. After being rescued, Agnès aids Tiz and the others by communicating through a fragment of her crystal pendant in the possession of her Orthodoxy knight Yew Geneolgia.

Agnès running to Tiz's side.

After the battle with Providence, Tiz begins to die without Altair's soul to help keep him alive. Deneb, friend of Altair and Vega, and an Adventurer, asks the party to give her the SP Hourglass, which she takes into the past and delivers it to Tiz at the beginning of the events of Bravely Default. Filled with two years worth of SP, Agnès reveals that she has held the hourglass since Tiz's coma. Agnès rushes to the Norende Ravine and uses the SP Hourglass to give him a new chance of life. In the aftermath, having succeeded in establishing peace between the Orthodoxy and the Duchy, Agnès resigns from her position with the intention to marry Tiz and settle in Norende.

Spoilers end here.

Gameplay[]

Agnès in battle.

Agnès has the highest MP, Intelligence, and Mind, though she lacks in physical stats like strength and agility compared to the others, similarly to Tiz she also starts at level 1. This makes Agnès stats useful for magic-oriented jobs such as the Black Mage or White Mage. The player can also opt to compensate for her lower physical stats with jobs such as the Red Mage, Thief, or Dark Knight. The Vampire job is also recommended to her due to its high HP and balanced stats, the player should keep in mind however that base stats don't ultimately determine a character's competence on a particular job, and that any of the party members can do any job without major drawbacks due to stat differences.
