Serving as Squall's instructor, Ms.Trepe is regarded as a valuble member of the team...

In most schools, a teacher with a name like Ms.Trepe's would be inviting trouble, but at Balamb Garden she is treated with the upmost respect by her students.

With her amazing fighting skills, Quistis entered Garden at the tender age of 10 and graduated to the elite SeeD at 15. Quistis had a harsh early life, living in an orphanage for the first five years of her life, and in the years that followed she has had a hard struggle. With her past behind her, she is a superbly skilled teacher at Balamb Garden - sharing her many talents with Squall and his companions

Despite Quistis' cool and bold exterior, she is known to have a difficult time coping with frustration, which sometimes results in her becoming depressed over trivial matters.

Quistis learns enemy moves using Blue Magic as her special ability, but she does not gain it while she fights. Instead, she learns moves by using items which can sometimes be obtained from defeated foe.
