I can't stand Vaan. I think the main character should have been Ashe since the plot of her avenging her husbands death and defending her Kingdom is more interesting than Vaan who is just there.Ashe is the reason why the plot continues while Vaan is just there. Ashe is the leader of the ensemble but I guess 2006 is a year where game developers are not confident with female leads. Also look at Vaan, he have an awful design, he looks like a 12 year old male stripper. I also don't like Penelo, she is also an empty vessel like Vaan.
