The childhood friend of Vaan, Penelo is often frustrated with Vaan's obsession with becoming a Sky Pirate, and frequently tries to dissuade him from getting into trouble. When she hears there were intruders caught trespassing the palace grounds, she rushes to the site, knowing full well it had been Vaan's plan. She sees Vaan, together with the sky pirates he had met inside the palace, being led away in chains. Balthier, one of the sky pirates, assures her Vaan will be safe.
Unknowingly, her encounter with Balthier was seen by the headhunter gang led by Ba'Gamnan. They mistakenly assume Penelo knows Balthier personally, and kidnap her, leaving a note for Balthier to meet with them at the Lhusu Mines in Bhujerba if he wants to save her. Penelo is freed by her captors when Balthier shows up, and she makes her escape, only to be caught by Archadian soldiers, angry at having discovered her inside the mines, a place where Archadia is involved in a secret magicite mining operation.
She is brought to the onboard the Dreadnought Leviathan where she reunites with Vaan, whose party had been sent in by the marquis to save Ashe, the Princess of Dalmasca who was being kept in captivity by Judge Ghis, though Vaan had followed only to find Penelo. Shortly after, the decision to sell the females into slavery is made, and Penelo is carried away, along with Ashe and Fran.
