Storyline

Hundreds of years ago, Phantom gained fame and fortune by stealing precious treasures from the wealthy. He intentionally left clues at every crime scene so all of his targets would know it was he, the master thief, who had made off with their valuables. Though many tried, no one ever learned his true identity, and many began to believe he was something more than human. He was dubbed “Phantom” by the people.

When attempting to steal the Skaia, a precious jewel rumored to be connected to the power of Empress Aria of Ereve, Phantom ended up falling hopelessly in love with the Empress. The two developed a burgeoning friendship that became more romantic by the day. Instead of attempting to steal the Skaia again, Phantom decided to simply ask Aria for it. Although she found this amusing, she always declined.

Before their romance could deepen, Aria was tricked and killed by an envoy of the Black Mage led by the sinister General Orchid. Devastated by Aria’s death, Phantom offered his help to Freud the Dragon Master, and joined forces with a group of heroes to strike back at the Black Mage. The Five Legendary Heroes were eventually able to defeat the Black Mage and seal him away. Phantom had played his part in protecting the world that Aria had once believed in.

But his victory was not without great sacrifice. Cursed by the Black Mage while sealing him away, Phantom was encased in magical ice for hundreds of years. Eventually, the magic weakened, and Phantom broke free. After hearing rumors that Hilla was the rightful owner of Skaia and heir to the throne, Phantom rushed to Ereve. He stunned the onlookers by proving that Empress Cygnus was the rightful Heir to Empress Aria’s throne and Hilla had deceived them all. Hilla had no choice but to flee, and Phantom has since returned to his personal airship, the Lumiere, to build his strength in preparation for the fight against forces that seek to revive the Black Mage and plunge the world into another age of terror and chaos.


Phantom has high evasion and critical chance. It is a combination of the Thief concept and many unique skills and system. His primary weapon is called the Cane, and the secondary one, Cards. Attacking monsters grants you more Cards allowing you to use more skills.

One of the talents of the Phantom Thief is that he can use a select number of skills from other characters in the same map. He enters Steal Mode and chooses a character to take a skill from. The Cane then turns into a weapon from that class.

Development and Release

Phantom will be made available on July 12th, 2012. During the time leading up to Phantoms release, players can receive a letter from him, stating that he has "stolen the heart of your dearest friend". Cassandra will give you the actual letter, which, when opened, will give a letter from Phantom, which provides a damage boost for an hour, 3 renegade coins, and the Carte Fanatique, which has hidden potential and can be given to Phantom characters.

Skills

The Phantom has various skills, but his most unique and eye-catching skill is his ability to steal other characters skills and use them for himself.
