Janne Angard is a temporary playable character in Bravely Second: End Layer. Just like Yew Geneolgia and Nikolai Nikolanikov, he is from Gathelatio. He is a member of the Three Cavaliers, assigned protectors of Agnès Oblige, and is known as the "Blazing Wolf." His real name is Janne Balestra.
Five years ago, Janne and Yew stayed in the same dormitory and studied in the same academy too. Recognized for his amazing sword skills, he was able to graduate a year earlier than Yew. The two are reunited when Yew joined the Crystalguard's Three Cavaliers, and are appointed to protect Agnès on the day of the peace declaration treaty. Six days after Yew's coma, the Three Cavaliers set a plan to retrieve Agnès from the kaiser's clutches. However, in the middle of their journey, Janne comes out as an Imperial spy and threatens to take Yew's life from him.
