Like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift takes place in both Ivalice and St. Ivalice. Chronologically, the Ivalice portion of the game is set some time after while the St. Ivalice portion is set around ten years after Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
There are seven playable races in the game: Humes, Moogles, Vieras, Bangaas and Nu Mou return from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, while Seeq, from Final Fantasy XII, are playable for the first time. The Gria are a new race that has been introduced to the world of Ivalice.
The main character, Luso Clemens, is a boy who is sent to library clean-up duty right before summer vacation, he finds an old book in the library. The book abruptly becomes blank in the middle. After this, the book commands that the reader should tell/write the person who should fill in this blank. He then writes his own name on the blank page, Luso Clemens, after which he is transported into the world of Ivalice. Dropping into the middle of a forest right in front of a large monster called a Klesta, he is told by a warrior named Cid nearby that if he wishes to live he should join his clan, which the player can give a name to later in the game. Luso does so, and, in front of a judge, swears to join the clan, after which he is transformed into the soldier class.
