Knight of Death
Hmm, what characters did he design?
He's worked on:

  • Vagrant Story
  • Tactics Ogre
  • Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Final Fantasy Tactics A2
  • Final Fantasy III
  • Final Fantasy XII
  • Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light
  • Bravely Default
  • Final Fantasy XIV
Bear in mind, he's probably not done every single character in each of those games, but he has a very recognisable style when you look at the art rather than the in-game renders.

Ack, shame to see him go. I hope freelance will be a beneficial turn for him, expand his profile and to give other developers a chance to utilise his talent in their games, but at the same time, Square, what's wrong with you? Give it ten years, we may even see Nomura out.
