Quistis Trepe is one of the main playable characters of Final Fantasy VIII. Possibly the youngest instructor in Garden, Quistis is a valuable party member. She, like the other protagonists, was an orphan. She was adopted but things did not go as planned and she found herself in Balamb Garden at the age of ten. It was there that she began to notice Squall Leonhart and Seifer Almasy, two boys who just couldn't get on. It was she who was there for Squall at this time, and still looks out for him as they both grow older. Quistis Trepe passed her SeeD exam at the earliest possible age, fifteen, and became an instructor two years later. We are introduced to her when she supports Squall during the final part of his training, defeating the GF Ifrit at the Fire Cavern. Quistis is not an overly friendly person, and keeps herself to herself. She has no particular friends at Garden, although, due to her fantastic achievements and beauty she has her own fan club among the students of Balamb Garden. As she becomes closer to the party she begins to open more and reveal more of her thoughts and feelings.
Quistis's Limit Break, Blue Magic, allows her to use enemy magic against monsters. You can teach Quistis more Blue Magic by using certain items on her from the menu. You most commonly gain these items from battling the monster in question, or through using Card-Mod.
