- — Fargo
Fargo (ファルガ , Farga?) is a reputable seaman who sailed around El Nido and developed a reputation for fierceness in Chrono Cross. He is one of three characters with the ability to steal items from opponents.
His origins are unknown; he eventually came to the seas of El Nido, where he mingled with the Demi-humans of Marbule and eventually took a wife, Zelbess. The two stood together for the rights of Demi-humans; he had erstwhile developed his ultimate ship, the S.S. Invincible. Zelbess and Fargo parented two children -- Nikki, the future rock star, and Marcy, the future Deva. He also developed his ultimate attack, the Invincible, which Zelbess made him promise never to use again. He soon fell in with the Acacia Dragoons, whose leader, General Viper, struck a negative chord with him. Unfortunately, this led to a major falling out around 1011 A.D.; an incident occurred at Viper Manor, causing Fargo and Zelbess to flee for their lives and leave Marcy and Nikki in the care of Luccia (though Fargo believed they had both been killed). Zelbess perished in the aftermath, angering Fargo to breaking point and causing him to become a full-fledged pirate. He subsequently gathered his crew and used the S.S. Invincible to raid ships belonging to the Acacia Dragoons. The crew revered him as a stoic, unabashed fighter. Lynx befriended General Viper, causing problems for Fargo and his crew; they later engendered the legend of the Ghost Ship to avoid detection, and used it to terrorize the high seas.
In 1020 A.D., he noted the movement of the Acacia Dragoons to Fort Dragonia, though took no action against them, preferring to stay adrift in fog off the shore of Mount Pyre. He encountered Serge at this time, whose party boarded the ship thinking it was the Ghost Ship. Fargo tested their strength, and later threw them in the hold for safekeeping. The real Ghost Ship attacked at this point; Fargo relentlessly fought at the stern of the ship to thwart the phantoms until Serge made his way up to the deck from below. Serge subsequently took the helm, as Fargo had sustained an injury to his arm. The ensuing battle drove away the ship and left Serge in Fargo's sincerest gratitude; Fargo thanked him and gave him a tip about the Water Dragon's Ice Breath. Fargo then continued to sail around the sea of El Nido until Porre invaded in Another World; somehow, the S.S. Invincible was subjugated without a battle and Fargo was thrown into the jail of Viper Manor. Serge once again rescued him, though Fargo was initially alarmed by his resemblance to Lynx. Fargo repaid the former favors in full after securing command of his ship; he steered it to Hermit's Hideaway and saved Serge and the Dragoons from Lynx. He met Viper face to face once more, though the two set aside their differences for the time being.
Fargo then joined Serge's party, eventually visiting his counterpart in Home World. Disgusted with the S.S. Zelbess, he commandeered the ship and steered it to Marbule. To assist Serge's cleansing of the island, he reluctantly broke the seal of Invincible, his most formidable attack. Along the way, he also met Marcy and Nikki, learning the status of his son and daughter for the first time. He then waited on the S.S. Invincible for the final battle, noting that after his business was done in El Nido, he planned to set sail to other parts of the world.
