— Vyse
Vyse (ヴァイス Vaisu[1]) is a major viewpoint character in Skies of Arcadia. He is a the son of the Blue Rogue captain Dyne. Vyse was born and raised on Pirate Isle and dreams of embarking on a grand adventure and seeing "what's beyond the sunset".


Vyse is somewhat short for his age, standing at a height of 5'7''. He has medium-length brown hair, brown eyes, and a scar on his left cheek. He wears a blue jacket over a black sleeveless t-shirt, black leggings, brown knee-length leather boots and a sky-blue eyepatch lens over his right eye which he can use to magnify distant objects.

Very little is known about Vyse's youth. When he became of age, he became a regular crew member on his father's pirate airship, the Albatross. He would often take part in raids, as well as menial tasks onboard such as moving cargo and cleaning the decks. Vyse had to overcome airsickness when he was a child. He obtained the distinctive crescent-shaped scar under his left eye during a failed rescue attempt when he was ten years old while protecting Aika.


Vyse has a driven and positive personality and displays strong compassion for those he cares about and empathy for those who. Vyse is extremely driven to do well and be a role model to those around him. His strong compassion and empathy are known to inspire others to great feats that they did not realize they were capable of. With nothing more than his goodwill and personality, Vyse unites a disparate crew from all over the world into a single fighting force to do battle with the Valuan Armada, and he can call on his crew members when the need is great to fight the enemy by shouting, "Blue Rogues, attack!" Vyse is a notable character in modern RPGs because his personality and character design visibly eschew the brooding, monochromatic and depressive characterization embraced by Squaresoft (now Square Enix) in the PlayStation iterations of the Final Fantasy series. Also in a departure from many role-playing game heroes, Vyse is not a silent protagonist, and the player is often given a choice of what Vyse is to say at key moments in the game. At least one of these answers will usually enhance Vyse's Swashbuckler Rating.

Combat ProfileEdit

Vyse wields twin pirate cutlasses, with his combat stance utilizing one for defense and the other for offensive. He excels at physical attacks. His attack stat is not extremely high, but his weapons are often extremely powerful. He is a compotent magic user, but the power of his magic attacks are limited. Vyse also has the highest spirit profile in the game, which allows him to channel a significant amount of spirit points during Focus. However, due to his physical strength it's better to utilize him for attacking rather than raising the spirit of the party.

Vyse has five special moves that can be learned.

Appearance in Other GamesEdit

Valkyria ChroniclesEdit

Vyse Inglebard

Vyse makes a cameo appearance in the PlayStation 3 game Valkyria Chronicles as an optional playable character. He is voiced by Roger Craig Smith in the English version.

In the game, he is named Vyse Inglebard and is a Shocktrooper in Squad 7; his profile indicates he is from “a far off land”. Uniform and weapons aside, he looks identical to his Skies of Arcadia counterpart, albeit with a different voice. Vyse is often seen with Aika (a Scout), Fina (triplet Medics), and another young Squad 7 Shocktrooper named Alex Raymond ("Alex" was an early name for the project that developed Skies of Arcadia) and a Lancer (anti-tank trooper) named Hector Calvey. After the events of the game (if they survive), They leave Gallia along with Alex, last seen boarding a ship in the early morning fog.

Vyse, along with Fina also makes an appearance in the anime adaptation; he is seen at the start of episode 13. Unlike the game, he has blue hair and is a member of Squad 5.

Vyse, along with Aika and Fina is playable in Valkyria Chronicles 3 after clearing the Squad 7 mission in Post-Game, though they are unplayable in the Mission itself.

Vyse appears in the anime OAV for that game as well, this time as a member of Squad 7.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing TransformedEdit

Vyse as he appears in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Vyse appears as a playable character in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. He has a similiar design of that in Skies of Arcadia. He is seen driving a vehicle in the trailers that resembles and has the same colors as the Delphinus. If the vehicle's a boat, it'll sprout two canoe-like hulls that extend a little bit away from it. If it's a plane, it's back will reveal two exhausts and two little winglets that despite the placement and the appearance, they give his jet the same area of agility as the other planes.

Although Vyse does not appear in the game's prequel, Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, an interview with Gamereactor reveals that he was considered to be a playable character.[2]



  • During battle, it is possible to remove Vyse's goggle. When choosing a battle command, press right, right, left, left, up, down, up, down, right, and left on the control stick (if done correctly, Vyse will sigh). The effect only lasts for the duration of the battle.
  • Vyse's character traits are similar to Sonic the Hedgehog in the Sonic Adventure games. Willing to go on adventures,protect his friends, and shares Sonic's voice actor Roger Craig Smith in Sonic All Star Racing.
  • The way Vyse learns responsibility is similar to Ryo Hazuki in the Shenmue games.
