Biography

Sabin is a martial artist and student of Duncan. Prior to this, he was a prince of Figaro along with his twin brother, Edgar. Sabin left Figaro after Edgar became king, and when the two brothers reunite Edgar can hardly believe how muscular his brother has become. Sabin joins the party after Terra, Locke, and Edgar help him defeat Vargas, Duncan's resentful son. After encountering Ultros for the first time, Sabin is separated from the rest of the group and ends up traveling to Doma, Mobliz, and Nikeah and befriending Cyan and Gau before reuniting with Terra and the others in Narshe.

There's more! But you need to turn on spoilers to see it.

Gameplay

Sabin has high Strength, Speed, and Stamina but low Magic, making his primary role in battle as a physical attacker quite obvious. He can only equip light armor, light shields, and claw weapons, but Sabin is consistently a source of big physical damage throughout the game. Sabin's Blitz attacks require button inputs similar to those in fighting games - uses the same button combination as the Hadouken skill in Street Fighter, maybe not by coincidence. Several skills in the Blitz moveset are powerful indeed, and add to Sabin's versatility in combat. For whatever reason, most of Sabin's Blitz attacks use Magic instead of Strength in their damage formulas, so players shouldn't neglect his Magic stat if they plan on using Blitz often.

Special Skill: Blitz

Sabin can execute the Blitz attacks by means of pressing the correct button sequence. Blitz attacks are learned by gaining levels:

Level 1: Raging Fist (Single-target physical, non-elemental barrier-piercing attack)
Level 6: Aura Cannon (Single-target magical, Holy-elemental attack)
Level 10: Meteor Strike (Single-target physical, non-elemental barrier-piercing attack)
Level 15: Rising Phoenix (Multi-target magical, Fire-elemental attack)
Level 23: Chakra (Heals all characters but the caster for the amount of the caster's current HP / number of characters.)
Level 30: Razor Gale (Multi-target magical, Wind-elemental attack)
Level 42: Soul Spiral (Heals all characters and removes negative status effects. Kills user.)
Level 70: Phantom Rush (Single-target magical, non-elemental barrier-piercing attack)

The Blitz techniques can be executed as follows:

Raging Fist: Left, Right, Left
Aura Cannon: Down, Down/Left, Left
Meteor Strike: R, L, Down, Up
Rising Phoenix: Left, Left/Down, Down, Down/Right, Right
Chakra: R, L, R, L, Up, Down
Razor Gale: Up, Up/Right, Right, Right/Down, Down, Down/Left, Left
Soul Spiral: R, L, Up, Down, Right, Left
Phantom Rush: Left, Left/Up, Up, Up/Right, Right, Right/Down, Down, Down/Left, Left

An alternate way to do Blitzes which most people find more fail-proof and easier to input, is by converting the diagonals into double arrow input. Any diagonal can be input by pressing either of the two directions that make up the diagonal.
