Narcisse Pilloni III (ナルセス・ピローニIII世 Narusesu Pirōni III?), also known as Narcisse (ナルセス Narusesu?), is a playable character from SaGa Frontier 2. He is a veteran Digger who talks down to rookies but is also quick to offer his knowledge and experience for a price. He has advanced spell casting abilities at his disposal.




Narcisse is a very self-confident man of an extremely rational disposition. Like his namesake, Narcisse can be rather full of himself, revealed to be due to both his years of adventuring and his time spent with the Master Cielmer. Although he appears to be moody at first, his behavior towards Wil Knights reveals his other, kinder side. Narcisse is a friendly man at heart, who later even takes care of Wil's son, Rich.


In his youth, he accompanied Master Cielmer on his travels where he met and verbally sparred with a young Nebelstern. In the intervening years he became an adventurer who sold his services to Diggers in search of Quells. While his haughty attitude caused minor schisms with Wil and his team, the two eventually grow into good friends over the years. Eventually Narcisse decides to retire. In his later years, Narcisse grows concerned with Wil's obsession with the Egg and cautions him on his reckless behavior. Despite their disagreement, Narcisse remains a friend of the Knights family.

Narcisse begins the game with very high HP, decent LP, and high proficiency in Flame, Stone, and Tone Spell Arts. He also starts with the Bushfire spell and Heavy Spell Role making him a powerful mage at that point in the game. His WP regen is low at one point a round, while his SP regen is average with 2 points. Though Fire is his highest elemental aptitude in terms of growth, his spell art sparking potential favors Tone which is sadly a rare element to find in the scenarios he's available in.

Despite his high starting stats, his growth is slower than the other characters within his scenarios, so he tends to be a crutch character who helps the party out until they catch up to him. While he is quite competent with a Bow, Spell Arts work best for his strengths. Thus, while it's good to have him learn Bow Weapon Arts, he benefits more from the Bow's large assortment of Hybrid Arts instead.

In terms of Roles, Narcisse works best with roles that play to his strengths like Heavy Spell or Marksman.
