Balthier is born in Abaven by Aranea and Allegro with his brother Solo and his sisters Forte and Psalm. His mother ends up leaving shortly after their birth. It is saddening to Balthier, but he still loves his mother deeply and tries to understand her reasoning best he can at his young age. He soon learns about a lost older sister he has, but doesn't understand enough to want to chase after her. He also learns his mother will be even more absent in his life, and it hurts him to think that what little time they had together will be cut even shorter. He starts to question why his mother doesn't want to be around them as much but still loves her all the same.

Balthier feels lonely inside his pack even beside his father and siblings. He wants to get out and get to know the rest of Abaven but it proves harder as the winter becomes never ending and spring non-existent. He meets Poem who he secretly looks up to like a mother and starts collecting supplies for the raft the were supposed to start crafting before the summer came around.

Poem does start a family of her own, putting their raft building behind, but he doesn't mind. He gets to meet Shae after Poems kids are born, and she joins in on going adventuring on the raft when it's ready and when she is old enough.

Balthier along with the rest of his family make a surprise visit to The Hallows to spend time with his mother. Little does he know that Aranea had been sleeping with another man which leads Allegro to make her come back to Abaven or forget that she ever had his kids. Balthier had avoided any alone time with his mother, and they set off back to Abaven after a few weeks.

Allegro starts getting their den ready for Aranea, and all of the kids at least expect their mother to finally come join them as the whole family they should be. Unknown to Balthier, Allegro catches Aranea's scent and follows her back down to Auster. Balthier believes his father went to meet Aranea half way before bringing her home, but Allegro returns the next morning without her, revealing what he and his kids had expected from the beginning. It doesn't hurt any less, but it at least gives Balthier the opportunity to move on, knowing what to expect from this moment on, knowing that his mother no longer exists in the picture of their family, and abandoning the Loire name.

Life in Abaven hadn't really gotten better or worse, Balthier spends time helping Azzurra regain her strength so she can travel more and spends more time with his brother. Before he knows it, without warning or seeing the signs, Allegro ends up leaving too, unable to look at his kids and care for them everyday being reminded of what Aranea had done to him and them. Balthier takes it upon himself to be the man of the family, feeling responsible for his three siblings and keeping them together. He comes back to the den that night to wake and tell Azzurra first before the others, and it turns into conflicted feelings within him resulting in a true kiss between them.

Shortly after Allegro had left them, Balthier has a dream where Allegro tells him that he was murdered when he returned to his mother's pack. Balthier gathers up the family and they head back to The Hallows in an attempt to face their mother again only to find out she had passed to. Balthier understands that she had an affair with another man when the Alpha states she died from birth complications, but there's nothing he can do to fix any of it.

Returning to Abaven is just a painful reminder of what they had missed from their mother and now the loss of both of their parents, and Balthier struggles to live happily inside the loving family pack he was born into. Growing close to Azzurra as her main provider and comfort, he makes the decision to leave Abaven to escape the now all painful memories of a life he had loved so much.

Now outside of the pack and alone with Azzurra, Balthier in his growing adolescence experiences numerous feelings that he doesn’t understand as lust until he and Azzurra share their first time together and realizing exactly what his mind and body had wanted from her over the course of the last few seasons growing stronger since their first kiss. But Balthier struggles immensely with the thought of lying with his sister, only knowing it feels wrong from the relationship he grew up around in Abaven. It causes tension between the two of them, and Balthier pretends that everything is fine while Azzurra festers in her own troubled feelings.

The discussion rises of finding a new pack to join and after unknowingly showing his skills before the alpha he is invited and joins Fenmyre with Azzurra, feeling a better sense of security for her.
