Final Fantasy VIII
I'm not asking you to say anything. I just want you to listen.
Quistis is known as a child prodigy around Balamb Garden. When she was 15, she became a SeeD and she was 17, she became the youngest instructor ever. She even has her own fan club. She is more lax and not so strict as other instructors, due to her age, and with some students, this causes problems since they don't take her seriously. She is friendly and she always tries to be calm. Due to her quiet assertiveness and restraint, very few people take the trouble to view her as the young woman she still is and so, forced to mull over her thoughts and worries alone, kept at a distance from her pupils by her rank, she tends to brood a lot. She would love to develop a more personal relationship with the people around her, especially with Squall. But she is hesitant to make a bold move and maintains her role instead.
Quistis was also an orphan at the end of the Sorceress War and grew up in the Orphanage with Zell, Selphie, Irvine, Seifer, Squall and Ellone. She admired Edea and her nickname was Quisty. They thought she was bossy, because when Ellone left, she tried to take her place and always broke up Squall and Seifer when they got into a fight. She was eventually adopted, but due to unknown reasons, she came to Balamb Garden at the age of 10. She was first one of the youngest students and when she became an instructor at the age of 17, she was also the youngest instructor. Even when she became an Instructor she couldn't stop thinking about Squall, confusing her childhood feelings as a "big sister" for love. She hid her feelings though, even more so when she became his Instructor. During her time as a student Quistis became close friends with Xu, another Garden student, and together they climbed the ranks of Balamb Garden's Card Club with Quistis eventually becoming the card master King; the highest ranked and skilled member in the club, at age 14. Three years later Quistis had become something of an idol to some of the students, so much that they had even created a fan club around her. Naming themselves "Trepies", they respected and idolized everything that she did and was also slightly protective of her. Quistis herself took their actions in stride and ignored them for the most part, concentrating only on her job as Instructor of her class. Two students she kept specific attention on were Squall and Seifer, the former due to her hidden feelings towards him, the latter due to his misconduct.
Quistis gets her licence to teach back and she is newly promoted to oversee the care of the students with Dr. Kadowaki, Quistis served, along with Xu, as Squall's assistant while on board the mobile Balamb Garden. Decisions were made and the Garden next embarked to the old orphanage, but it was intercepted by similarly mobile Galbadia Garden. The Battle of the Gardens ensues, ending in Sorceress Edea's defeat and Rinoa becoming comatose. Quistis is really concerned about Rinoa and they eventually make it to Esthar. Later, in Esthar they go on the final mission to defeat Ultimecia once and for all.
Quistis wields the whip as her default weapon. A precise weapon that requires a lot of practice and skill to use effectively.
Quistis' name in Romanji is Kisutisu Turīpu, and it is pronounced (in English) as "Kistis Treep". So far, the true origin of her name and its meaning are completely unknown.
