Not very versatile when he's dead
Not saying you shouldn't use him. I just find he's not always worth it.
He's basically a wizard who can fight with a weapon. Problem is, that includes his Defense, and HP stats, while lacking in the MP department. Still, since I pretty much never use Chaz because by then I already have my party built the way I want, Raijin is a welcome spell for hitting groups of enemies. If not for that alone, I would probably look a bit less favorably on him.

Must be fun to watch someone play this for the first time ^.^
It has been interesting. We're playing cooperatively in battle though, with each of us directly controlling different characters, but it's still interesting giving him the lead, and seeing how things play out as a result. Especially when we fought Kraken, and I refrained from telling him until we were already knee-deep in trouble that the easiest way to win the battle is to start by coaxing the head with Luke and/or Peter.
I don't let him go in totally blind however in situations where I feel it necessary to speak up. For example, when we fought Taros, I addressed the fact that only Bowie can damage him, yet still recommended we rush him with everybody to distract his blows from our leader.
