* BlackMage: Of the four main characters, she has the best Intelligence of the lot, making her the most suitable character for this role.

White Wizard of Mysidia, and apparent advisor to the Fynn royal court. He is the one who saves Firion and his party, and later fights alongside them in their quest to stop the Empire. He is tragically killed by the magic necessary to undo the seal on [[SealedGoodInACan Ultima]]. He appears as a playable sub-character in ''VideoGame/TheatrhythmFinalFantasy''.

* MagikarpPower: In Soul of Rebirth, he starts as a basic medic who isn't really good for direct combat. Then he gets Ultima, and he becomes a murder train dealing damage to the tune of ''600 per Ultima spell level''. It won't be long before he's single-handedly slaughtering anything that dares cross you.



* RedMage: Becomes this if taught any black magic. Soul of Rebirth made him the only party member capable of learning Ultima.

mage. In his story we learn that he was born with inmensely powerful magic, and thus, was fit to be the one who'd guard over the [[FantasticNuke Destruction]] magic tome, which is basically Ultima on steroids. However, after millennia of guarding the thing he becomes so absorbed by his duty that he fights everyone who dares to enter his sanctuary. [[spoiler: After Firion and his party defeat him, he's presented the Light of Hope, [[RestoredMyFaithInHumanity and thus has renewed faith]] in the world.]]

* AmbiguouslyBrown: His skin color is a bit darker than the rest of the cast, along with however, Firion and Minwu.Minwu have a darker complexion.

* BadassBoast: Subverted. After realising that the party has the Goddess's Bell, he declares that he's still a soldier, attacks the party... and proves to be easily the weakest boss in the game, if not the ''entire series''.

* NoNonsenseNemesis: Probably ''helped'' by his status as a FlatCharacter rather than hurt by it -- with no defined personality beyond being an EvilOverlord, the Emperor's defining trait is how effective and competent a strategist he is. The plot of the game pretty much goes "the Rebellion gets some advantage over the Empire or sabotages some advantage they have, but it doesn't matter because the Emperor was already working on getting an even ''bigger'' advantage over them in return, and now a party member is going to die and/or at least one town is going to be invaded or destroyed." Rinse and repeat several times until there's nothing else left for him to do but [[spoiler:take over Hell, come BackFromTheDead, and go for HellOnEarth.]]

You can basically sum up the plot of the game pretty much goes as "the Rebellion gets some advantage over the Empire or sabotages some advantage they have, but it doesn't matter because the Emperor was already working on getting an even ''bigger'' advantage over them in return, ''better'' advantage, and now that he has it a party member major character is going to die and/or at least one town is going to be invaded or destroyed." Rinse and repeat Repeat several times until there's nothing else left for him to do but [[spoiler:take the party just finally confronts and kills him. [[spoiler:And then even that doesn't work, because he takes over Hell, come comes BackFromTheDead, and decides to go for HellOnEarth.]]
