“The world she believed in isn't dead yet. I won't let anyone bury her dreams!”
- ― Phantom
A century ago, he was famous among the wealthy merchants and noblemen. He deliberately left traces when stealing, and even then people did not even know who he was. They called him "Phantom".
Throughout the Maple World, Phantom was honored. However, the death of Aria, the Empress before Cygnus, with whom he had fallen in love with while trying to steal the great treasure of Ereve, caused him to join the Heroes to take revenge on the Black Mage. He sought one of the heroes, Freud, for an invitation, and he was most welcome. After a fierce battle, he and the other four heroes sealed away the Black Mage and saved the Maple World. However, due to the curse inflicted by the Black Mage, all heroes except for Freud, who died in the battle, were trapped in ice and went into a deep sleep.
A hundred years later, Phantom reawakens from the curse. He infiltrates Ereve, where a meeting is being held. Hilla, a commander of the Black Wings poses as an Empress by showing the crowd Skaia, a jewel said to glow in the hands of the Empress. However, it did not glow in Cygnus's.
Luckily, Phantom comes to the rescue. He calls the Skaia held by Hilla a fake and destroys it, claiming that the real Skaia is in his hands. This causes Hilla to back off and flee from Ereve, although she tells him that the Maple World is already in "his" hands. Phantom then gives Cygnus the real Skaia and returns to the Lumiere.
A friend who loved the Maple World has come back to defend it and battle the Black Mage a second time. The Phantom Thief has returned.
Perhaps the most convenient class of all, Phantom has the ability to copy skills of other Explorer players (except Dual Blade, Cannoneer, Jett, and Zen) thanks to Impeccable Memory I, II, III, and IV. Skill Swipe is used to copy skills from other players and Loadout is used to rearrange them. Loadout can only carry four 1st and 2nd job skills, three 3rd job skills, and two 4th job skills, and Phantom can only have one skill from each of the four jobs active at a time. Impeccable Memory's level also determines the level of the stolen skill. However, copied skills are equivalent to the other player's skill level, unless of course they exceed Impeccable Memory's level.
Another convenient ability is To The Skies, which allows Phantom to return to Lumiere. The airship doubles as an NPC service area and an intercontinental station, allowing Phantom to restock, replenish, etc. while allowing him to travel all over the world from anywhere. Additionally, the ship's transport time is much shorter than other transports, taking only three minutes regardless of destination distance.
Phantom also has high dodge rate (mistakenly written as avoidability) and critical hit rate.

- Like Mercedes, the Black Mage's curse did not wipe Phantom's memory.
- Phantom is the only hero whose introduction did not take place centuries ago.
