Palom is a playable character in Final Fantasy IV and its sequel, Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. He is a Black Mage from Mysidia who trains together with his twin sister, Porom.

Appearance and PersonalityEdit

Palom is a young boy wearing a striped green and white costume, with an orange cloak and green boots. His hair is pulled into a little ponytail in contrast with Porom, who has longer hair and wears the same outfit as her brother, but it is orange instead of green.

Palom is a casual show-off, even to adults, and refers to himself as "The Mysidian Genius" or "Prodigy". This, combined with his inflated ego, causes him to get a little out of hand, leading to Porom having to settle him down, either with words or by smacking him on the head.

Palom's hair has grown longer and he wears it in a braid with a hair ornament. He still has his costume, which worn under a blue coat with a shoulder pad and a white scarf with green stripes. Palom and Porom wear matching amulets with contrasting colors - Palom's is red and Porom's is green. They wear these amulets in their artwork and renders, and wear them in-game in some releases.

He has matured and at one point tells Leonora not to get too confident, as this is the point where people let their egos sink them. Palom teases Leonora after taking her under his wing, but reveals to have faith and fondness for her by referring to her as his partner. He is determined to find independence from Mysidia on his personal quest to become a Sage like Tellah.
