Tibarn, the King of Phoenicis, is one of the five Laguz kings who rules over the hawks. After the incident twenty years prior to the start of the game, Tibarn became quite hateful of beorcs.[1] He currently was taking care of of Reyson's father who fell ill after the Serenes Forest massacre.[2] He also shows much care for the Heron tribe due to them almost being wiped out of existence and has some issues with Naesala of Kilvas.

Death quotes

Blast! I’ve got to get out of here! Sorry for all the trouble!
— Tibarn, in Path of Radiance.
…Urk! Impossible… Looks like I need to pull back.
— Tibarn, as an NPC in chapters 17-4 and 28 of Path of Radiance.
No! You’re not going to retreat!? Don’t you…know who…I am? You can’t kill…me… I lived as I wished… I’ve no regrets.
— Tibarn, in Radiant Dawn.
Gaah…can’t die…yet. I can’t… leave things this way…
— Tibarn, in part 4 chapter 2 of Radiant Dawn.
Ugh! Damn! Just…a scratch… I can still…fight…
— Tibarn, in part 4 chapter 5 of Radiant Dawn.

Battle quotes

The objective is accomplished. Let’s retreat!
— An unused quote intended to be Tibarn's retreat quote in Path of Radiance.
As am I. I want to rake my talons across your face so much, I can hardly control myself. [...] Come. Let’s get started.
— Tibarn, when fighting Ashnard in the final chapter of Path of Radiance.
Sorry to disappoint you, but Zelgius is my prey. There’s no chance I’m passing him on to the likes of you.
— Tibarn, when fighting Valtome in part 4 chapter 2 of Radiant Dawn.
No power on Tellius will protect you from me. With your death, I can finally lay my brothers’ souls to rest.
— Tibarn, when fighting Izuka in part 4 chapter 5 of Radiant Dawn.
As payment for taking care of Rafiel when I couldn’t, I’ll make this quick.
— Tibarn, when fighting Hetzel in part 4 final chapter-1 of Radiant Dawn.
I’m glad I got to you first. See, I heard that the Serenes Massacre was all your doing… That puts you at the very top of the list of the enemies of the bird tribes. [...] As much as I’d love to draw this little chat out, I don’t think I can keep my talons out of your neck another instant. [...] Some of us here are just overflowing with the chaos you’re causing with this fight. That might be part of it… But, to be honest, there’s a part of me that can hardly believe how much fun tearing your head off will be.
— Tibarn, when fighting Lekain in part 4 final chapter-1 of Radiant Dawn.
I never would have believed that one day I’d be facing off against you. Life sure is funny, sometimes. [...] Don’t be so sure about that. You just might be surprised. Besides, you’ve got a lot to answer for, Dheginsea. You’ll finally pay the price for all those years of inaction and indifference as your kin were butchered and enslaved.
— Tibarn, when fighting Dheginsea in part 4 final chapter-3 of Radiant Dawn.
You know what? I don’t believe you’re the big, bad, evil guy you want us all to think you are. [...] Ah, I was right! I see it in your eyes. I’ve been around for a while, and learned a bit about spotting fakes. So now that your secret’s out, maybe you’d like to open up and tell me: Who are you really?
— Tibarn, when fighting Sephiran in part 4 final chapter-4 of Radiant Dawn.
