Bart Fatima is not your average prince. ^_~ He's a renegade in his own country thanks to Shakhan's coup, and he roams the sands of Aveh in his family's sandcruiser, the Yggdrasil. He's been named a criminal and a pirate, but despite the rumors spread by Shakhan and his allies from the Gebler organization, he does not do any more damage than necessary, and he never commits murder. He's trying to gather enough resources to reclaim his kingdom, but until Fei comes along, he isn't very successful.

When Bart was still very young, his father was toppled from the throne by Shakhan (as mentioned above). In order to save the family line, Maison and Sigurd smuggled Bart out of the palace and spread a rumor of his death, effectively cutting the searches short and granting them some relief from Shakhan's pursuit. Sigurd disappeared a short time after that, but Bart's life continued on.

Years later, during a pirating run near Bledavik, Bart encounters Fei for the first time. At first he fights Fei, not trusting him (I think he believed Fei was an Aveh soldier) at all. But after Fei proves himself to be a strong, loyal ally, Bart accepts him as a friend. With the help of Fei and Shitan, he hopes to finally reclaim his kingdom from the hands of Shakhan and Gebler.

Bart and Margie are made for each other, wouldn't you say? (yes, I know that came out of nowhere...) They both have a hard time admitting to any kind of emotion, but aside from that... well, they were childhood friends! They probably understand each other perfectly. Talk about a match made in heaven!

Anyway...... Bart is one of the stronger characters, although I didn't use him much. His voice is really strange in the American version, so listening to his deathblows is sort of funny. ^_~ But...... Rhythym Shock, Astral, and Angel were his most useful deathblows in my game. (Again, let me state that my results are not typical. I just happen to live in the Twilight Zone......) I love his elemental weapon spells though! They're just like Dominia's, and believe me, it's nice to get back at her sometimes!
