Stiltzkin is a Moogle who appears at various points of the game beginning in Alexandria. He sells you a collection of items each time you meet with him at a discount price and the items get progressively better as you proceed through the game.

Stiltzkin uses the funds to allow him to continue his journey across Gaia, but he will show up at each location regardless of whether you purchase the group of items.

The final purchase that you can make from Stiltzkin will net you a Ribbon but only if you purchase all of the items at each opportunity.

The final reward that you will receive from Stiltzkin (if you purchase all of items that he sells) is a Ribbon. There is no way to go back and revisit some of the encounters with Stiltzkin throughout the game so make sure that you purchase all of the available items from him.

Driving the Hard Bargain

You must purchase all of the available items from Stiltzkin each time he appears in order to obtain the Driving the Hard Bargain Trophy. This is a missable trophy as you cannot return to some sections of the game in order to buy items that you have missed.
