"Aye, Matey! It sure was a swash-bucklin' voyage! If ya ever wanna become a pirate, be sure to come see me... Aboard the S.S. Invincible!"
— Fargo

Fargo (ファルガ Faruga?) is a reputable seaman who sailed around El Nido and developed a reputation for fierceness in Chrono Cross.


In the past, Fargo can be seen as a family man until his wife Zelbess' death, leading him to become a full-fledged pirate who sails the S.S Invincible with his crew. Upon meeting with Serge and his party, Fargo can be stoic and serious and is an adept sword fighter. He previously had a heated rivalry with General Viper until they settled differences when they decided to join Serge and his party. Fargo is able to recognize Serge even when inhabiting Lynx's body.

Fargo is very close to both Nikki and Marcy, the latter became one of the four Devas, recognizing her father after joining Serge's party. Before Fargo's recruitment when Nikki is in Serge's party, he does not recognize his son when they were questioned by him and his pirate crew at the S.S. Invincible. After Fargo gained Serge's loyalty and trust for saving him, he had a moment with his son Nikki when he asked him about his family where Fargo mentions that he had two children with his late wife Zelbess and he assumed that they were dead, much to Nikki's shock, not knowing that he and Marcy were alive.

Fargo shows his disgust towards his dimensional counterpart in Home World for naming the ship after his late wife, berates him for being "a sissy" because of his laid-back and stubborn behavior brought on from grieving his wife. He shows a fondness for gambling (although this is revealed to be more like scamming, and was reprimanded by Another World's Fargo). He also praises Nikki's dimensional counterpart when he saves the town of Marbule with his rock music.


His origins remain unknown; he inevitably came to the seas of El Nido where he mingled with the Demi-humans of Marbule and married Zelbess and the two stood together for the rights of Demi-humans. Fargo then developed his ultimate ship the S.S. Invincible. Zelbess and Fargo parented two children: Nikki the future rock star, and Marcy the future Deva. He also developed his ultimate attack, the Invincible, which Zelbess made him promise never to use again. He soon fell in with the Acacia Dragoons, whose leader, General Viper, struck a negative chord with him. Unfortunately, this led to a major falling out around 1011 A.D. where an incident occurred at Viper Manor, causing Fargo and Zelbess to flee for their lives and leave Marcy and Nikki in the care of Luccia (though Fargo believed they had both been killed). Zelbess perished in the aftermath which angered Fargo to a breaking point, causing him to become a full-fledged pirate. He subsequently gathered his crew and used the S.S. Invincible to raid ships belonging to the Acacia Dragoons. The crew revered him as a stoic, unabashed fighter. Lynx who had eventually befriended General Viper, caused problems for Fargo and his crew. Fargo started the legend of the Ghost Ship to avoid detection and used it to terrorize the high seas.

In the year of 1020 A.D. Fargo noted the movement of the Acacia Dragoons to Fort Dragonia, though he took no action against them, preferring to stay adrift in fog off the shore of Mount Pyre. At this time he encountered Serge whose party boarded the ship thinking it was the Ghost Ship. Fargo tested their strength and threw them in the hold for safekeeping, when suddenly the real Ghost Ship attacked. Fargo relentlessly fought at the stern of the ship to thwart the phantoms until Serge and party broke out and made their way up to the deck from below. Serge subsequently took the helm as Fargo had sustained an injury to his arm. The ensuing battle drove away from the ship and left Serge in Fargo's sincerest gratitude where Fargo thanked Serge and gave him a tip about the Water Dragon's Ice Breath. Fargo then continued to sail around the sea of El Nido until Porre invaded in Another World; somehow, the S.S. Invincible was subjugated without a battle and Fargo was thrown into the jail of Viper Manor. Serge once again rescued him, though Fargo was initially alarmed by his resemblance to Lynx. Fargo repaid the former favours in full after securing command of his ship when he steered it to Hermit's Hideaway and saved Serge and the Dragoons from Lynx. He met General Viper face to face once more and the two set aside their differences for the time being.

Fargo joined Serge's party, eventually visiting his counterpart in Home World where he was disgusted with the S.S. Zelbess. He commandeered the ship and steered it to Marbule to assist Serge's cleansing of the island, breaking the seal of Invincible, his most formidable attack. Along the way, he also met Marcy and Nikki, learning the status of his children for the first time. He then waited on the S.S. Invincible for the final battle, noting that after his business was done in El Nido he planned to set sail to other parts of the world.

After defeating the Time Devourer, Fargo asks Serge if he wants to become a pirate like him, returning aboard the S.S. Invincible to set sail.
