|Game||Tales of Symphonia|
Vharley gains access to the Toize Valley Mine after he blackmails Regal Bryant with the life of Alicia Combatir, Regal's love and Presea Combatir's sister. He becomes the sole distributor of Exspheres between the Church of Martel and the Desians. However, he maintains himself in the limelight, and continues to perform odd jobs for the Pope.
After the party tries to infiltrate Meltokio through the sewers, they overhear Vharley talking to a knight of the Pope. The party learns that the Pope is slowly poisoning the King in order to make his death look like a natural occurrence, enabling the Pope to take control of the crown. Vharley appears to have been selling the poison to the Pope. After the knight leaves, the party confronts Vharley, where Regal throws him to the ground. Vharley yells to Regal that he will die just like Alicia, which enrages Presea enough to kill Vharley.
