|Limit Break||Mirage Dive|
Locke Cole is the primary male protagonist of Final Fantasy VI. Locke is an average Thief and the man to go to when in need of agile hands, information retrieval, or someone to be on a quick lookout. Locke is the second in command of the Returners and deals mainly with recruiting.
Locke is first met aiding in an espionage mission at the Narshean Caves, as they investigate the frozen Esper. During this time, he encounters Terra Branford, who he figures out that was a mind control device. He vows to protect her until she regains her memory, and takes her to the Returners hideout in order to meet with Banon.
Locke detests being referred to as a Thief, and prefers Treasure Hunter. Some time ago, during Locke's younger years, he fell in love with a woman named Rachel, in the town of Kohlingen. Locke took Rachel on all sorts of daily activities and small adventures to entertain her. One day however, the bridge they were walking on was collapsing, and Rachel jumped and pushed Locke off it in an attempt to save him, and she falls to her near death. Locke manages to rescue and nurture her back to health, however she develops amnesia and doesn't remember anything about herself or Locke. Her father was furious with this and banishes Locke out of the house, and the town. Rachel not knowing who he was, agrees, and Locke leaves a hollow and broken man. That day, Locke vows to protect any female with all his strength.
One day, the Empire attacked Kohlingen and destroyed everything in it, and wiping out a major portion of it's civilians. Rachel was one of them, and when Locke finds out, he becomes infuriated and swears revenge upon Gestahl. Locke joins the Returners and and helps the resistance's fight against the Empire.
