Familiar Faces is a Miscellaneous Event that may occur during the game.

In the event, the party will come across a Custom Character (if one has been created) and have the option to recruit them. It may happen in Normal Mode, but it happens much more often in Familiar Characters Mode and Familiar EXTREME.
