He's the cloned form of the fallen Allagan Technomancer, Amon seeking to reclaim his former glory in Eorzea. However, not everything is going as he planned.
Please note that my version of Amon is not Fandaniel, but rather the clone that Amon placed in Syrcus Tower. Due to changes in lore for 6.0, I've written up some theories on my version of Amon!
In order to survive his fall in the raid on Syrcus Tower, a seed of Amon's soul was embedded into a clone of his younger self. However, this cloned form was too weak to support the power he once commanded in his previous life, and the ritual used to revive him had detrimental effects, including sealing away the use of his aether.

Amon has made a home for himself within a Shirogane-based Free Company. There, he assists the FC with minor missions and odd jobs to help monetarily support it. He also sometimes busks and performs for a little gil on the side.
I've included a brief summary of Amon's time living in Eorzea, however, to get the full picture, check out the Spot of Mummery and Forge Ahead stories!
Things were going well enough for Amon as he adjusted to life with his new FC... until he had a chance run-in with the dragon Midgardsormr. With a mind to put the Allagan to a test, the elder dragon unlocked the seal on Amon's aether. Once released, the corrupted and wild nature of his life energy became an increasing danger to himself. This was temporarily held in check by a aether filter built into a choker created for him.
Aside from the aether issue, Amon's life was mostly peaceful until the discovery of his once-rival the Allagan Archmage, Scylla. Imitating Amon's clone project, Scylla also managed to survive the raid in the Tower by transferring her soul into a clone of herself. However, the imperfect nature of the transfer left her temporarily without memory of her past.
Seeing this, Amon took advantage of Scylla's amnesia episode to persuade her to travel to Syrcus Tower. He saught to use her royal blood as means of unlocking the Tower, with all intentions of transferring the power of the royal blood to himself afterwards.
Only... the Tower did not open for Scylla. Instead, she was granted memories of her past. In realizing she had been caught up in Amon's scheme, she struck at him viciously, thinking at first to punish him for all of the agony the Technologist put her through.
However, Scylla was unable to go through with her revenge, and instead, both Allagans were apprehended and taken back to their Free Company. They were placed under the watch of Benjamin Ya, by orders of the Gridanian Council, and also banned from Azys Lla and Mor Dhona.
Trained as a healer during her time in Gridania, Scylla struggled with her healer's instincts as they clashed with her desire to strike back against her old rival. However, in the end, she assisted Amon in building the aether transferal device that would eventually carry out the procedure that saved his life.
Amon survived the aether procedure, but at great price. His road to recovery was long as he had to allow natural aether restoration processes take place. The once powerful and proud Allagan Technologist found himself having to rely upon the kindness of others to do the most simple of day-to-day things.
As a result of the near-death experience, Amon swears off his endless struggle to return to the Tower and regain his previous power and status. But turning over a new leaf, even for him, is rarely a clear-cut path.
On top of it all, he's discovered a new sort of unusual feeling for his once hated rival, Scylla. Bearing witness to her selflessness, courage and dedication, he can't help but admire her... or maybe it's something more than merely admiration.
With his natural aether beginning to grow in strenth once more, Amon takes up learning the art of Red Magery. This... turns out to be more complex than he anticipated. His interactions with Scylla also inspired him to seek knowledge on the way of White Magics - though whether this was out of a desire to prove himself to her and win her approval is still unknown.
Things were getting pretty crazy in the world by this time, with the talk of the End of Days around every corner. Amon began to have uneasy dreams about seeing his cousin, Tad Kouris, from the Allagan age again. Sure enough, beyond all impossibility, Tad does arrive.
Tad came with grim news - information that he said he wanted Amon to hear straight rather than from some wandering rumor. First, Amon learned that his younger cousin, once a member of the Allagan Resistance, went on to become the Warrior of Light of the 4th age. If that wasn't enough, Tad informed Amon that he had lived all this time in Eorzea, and the final days in Syrcus Tower, unkowningly as a clone of the real Amon.
Torn with insecurity and struggling with a crisis of identity, Amon finds only further confusion when he overhears talk of the Ascian Fandaniel being linked to himself - or rather, his maker. Determined to seek out the truth behind his creation, he comes to Tad for clarification. That's when he learns that his cousin has the ability to enter Syrcus Tower, a location that might hold the answers that Amon is looking for. Much to his surprise, Tad agrees to take him to the Tower - the very place that Amon has longed to return.
-To be continued...-
Amon's skills range from bard performance to magic arts and the inner workings of Allagan technology. Some things he's a bit more experienced in than others, though.
