FFIX was one of my favorite and most-played titles when I was young. I've completed the game several times and found all the collectibles. Dagger's character arc was one of its weakest links. She was one of the most influential characters of the story, however she was so helpless it was annoying. I couldn't bring myself to like her, even when she made her so-called resolution to be a great Queen by cutting her hair, she still depended on Zidane, Steiner and everyone else to get things done for her. Vivi and Zidane had much more wholesome stories as they both went through such hardships yet found it in themselves to bounce back and live life to its fullest.
