Top 10 LGBT Characters in Video Games

6. Faris (Final Fantasy V)

Born female and raised as a male by pirates, Saris even made the rank of captain herself. Her heritage becomes a big point of contention later in the game, clashing even more with her character. She often gets confused or even offended by the subject of her gender and its affect on others’ view of her. She’s reserved overall but staunchly defends those near to her.

She’s also the most statistically balanced character, making her someone you can use with any build or abilities you like. She has a huge and expansive backstory that runs the gamut of betrayal, success, failure, working her way up, identity crises and the like. There are paragraphs of text explaining it on the Final Fantasy wiki, or you can play the game. It’s one of the best in the series.
