The latest issue of Shonen Jump reveals an amusing new character in Square Enix’s upcoming Final Fantasy XIII, an afro-donning, dual pistol wielding man whose hair is apparently large enough to serve as living space for his pet chibi chocobo: サッズ・カッツロイ / Sazh Katzroy.

The full sized scan from the magazine is below:

Not much in the way of details are given, but it is apparent that the dual pistols he carries will probably be his main weapon type in the game, and he does have a chibi chocobo that he carries around with him.

The magazine suggests that the chocobo, Hina, might be carried around in the unnamed character’s hair, which definitely does seem large enough for the task.

Above are Final Fantasy XIII’s more traditionally designed characters. Perhaps Sazh looks somewhat out of place?
