Sazh worked as a pilot of passenger ships in the floating continent of Cocoon, until his normal life was snatched away when the fal'Cie branded his son, Dajh, a l'Cie.

A man who appears in the tales of a world where the gods toy with humanity's fate. Bent on saving his son Dajh from his fate as a l'Cie, Sazh threw himself into the heat of battle, only to be, ironically, branded as a l'Cie himself. Worse yet, the fal'Cie that had chosen him as their servant were working in opposition to the fal'Cie directing his son. Now an enemy of Cocoon, Sazh was persecuted to the point of contemplating death as an escape. However, the hope of one day seeing his son smile again freed him from despair.
