BiographySetzer is a carefree and freewheeling gambler and airship pilot. His airship, the Blackjack, is the only of its kind in the world. Setzer is infatuated with the opera singer Maria, and at one point plots to kidnap her during a performance. Prior to the events of Final Fantasy VI, Setzer's dear friend went missing after crashing her own airship, the Falcon, during a race against Setzer.
There's more! But you need to turn on spoilers to see it.
GameplaySetzer has balanced stats, plus a very good selection of armor (he can use almost every light armor, heavy armor, and shield in the game) and a very unique set of weapons. All of Setzer's weapons have no back row penalty, and several of them increase stats, inflict status elements, or deal specialized random damage (he is a gambler after all). Setzer's Slot command has several possible effects that can deal powerful damage or cause instant death, but the attacks are random and a failed attempt usually results in some negligible healing. If Setzer equips the Heiji's Jitte relic, Slot becomes , a powerful attack that uses the party's cash reserves to inflict damage.
Special Skill: SlotsSetzer is a gambler. Therefore, his special skill involves the most prominent of Las Vegas imagery: the Slot machine. You spin it, you win it. Most of the time, anyway. On a normal, losing spin, you get minor recovery. If you're really unfortunate (as in, really, really unfortunate), you roll Snake Eyes and cast Joker's Death on your own party. There are eight possible outcomes to a slot spin.
Prismatic Flash: Non-elemental damage to all opponents.
Chocobo Stampede: Non-elemental barrier-piercing damage to all opponents that doesn't hit Floating enemies.
Dive Bomb: Non-elemental damage to all opponents. Stronger than Prismatic Flash.
Mega Flare: Non-elemental barrier-piercing damage to all opponents. It's the same attack you get when you summon the Esper Bahamut.
Summon: A random Esper is summoned, not including Odin and Raiden. There's a small chance (1/25) this will produce Crusader, whose attack hits you as well, often meaning death to everyone everywhere.
Joker's Death: Instant death to your entire party. Characters in the air from a Jump attack are spared, and Reraise restoration can prevent a Game Over.
Joker's Death: Instant death to the enemy party. There are some battles where this cannot be rolled by normal chance.
Any other spin results in Mysidian Rabbit, which provides a small amount of restoration to the entire party and also cures Darkness, Poison and Sleep.
If Setzer equips the Heiji's Jitte, he will give up Slots in favor of Gil Toss, which will use up the party's cash reserves to cause damage. Unequipping the relic will revert the ability back to Slots.
Desperation Attack: Red Card
