Cuchulainn is a villain from Final Fantasy Tactics.
After Gafgarion betrays the party at Zirekile Falls, Dame Agrias suggests they take shelter with the Cardinal at Lionel Castle. During their journey, they take in a young Machinist called Mustadio. When they meet the Cardinal, he earns their trust by showing them his Zodiac Stone, allegedly a powerful weapon for good. He tells them the story of the Zodiac Braves, agrees to protect Agrias and the Princess, as well as help Mustadio with his troubles.
However, his duplicitous nature is revealed when a trader named Bart tells Ramza of his deception, his plot to gain the Stones, his attack on Mustadio's father, and what he plans to do with the princess. He propositions Mustadio for Taurus, and goes back with what he believes is the true Stone. The Cardinal, however, sees through the ruse and realizes the Stone is a fake. He kills Bart for his idiocy, and hires Gafgarion. However, the mercenary tries and fails twice to kill Ramza and retrieve the Stones, so the Cardinal is forced to take matters into his own hands.
