He's like Frankenstein's creation. Was there ever a plot point directed at his origins or can this just be written off due to the fact that most FFIX characters have a fantastical look to them?

He looks a lot like a doll, in my opinion. I'd argue all the cast has a storybook-like quality to him.

What made my interest be piqued is I assumed Marcus and Cinna were orcs or trolls or goblins because they have a look to them. There's only a handful of characters who are clearly human in this game.

Holy shit, Blank has stitched up skin!

Holy trout, Blank is wearing a belt on his head.

Holy shit, Blank's entire outfit consists of three belts of various sizes!

Maybe his name is Blank because he doesn't have a name. He really is just a reanimated corpse like in Frankenstein. He turned out better than that monster with adapting to society, but he still just never knew exactly how belts were supposed to work.

I don't think it was ever mentioned or discussed.

Holy shit, Blank is just freaking badass.

Seriously, the more I think on it, the clearer and more terrifying it becomes.

Keep in mind that he is essentially blind as well on top of everything. I don't know if he may actually be blind, but there is no seeing through that belt over his face.
