* SoLongAndThanksForAllTheGear: She pulls this on your whole clan by leaving out of the blue towards the end of the main storyline (right after the mission at Goug), partly because of the fight against [[spoiler:Neukhia's hand]], and partly because of her nature as a [[spoiler:Gifted]]. As a result, she leaves with every piece of equipment that she has equipped, on top of robbing Cid of his gils. Thanksfully, she comes back after [[spoiler:you defeat her brainwashed self]] in the following storyline mission.

* TheChosenOne: As she wields tremendous power which came to her (through, presumably, her grimoire), she views herself as a chosen one.



* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her weapon of choice.



* LightningBruiser: You better be prepared, as Illua won't pull any punches in your fights against her. Her unique class, Nightshade, grants her formidable stats and access to devastating abilities: Saber is a self-buff raising her Attack and Accuracy (which will make sure you won't be able to avoid her other abilities), Time Blade deals massive damage and slows your unit, and [[ThatOneAttack Dimensional Rift is similar to Gravity, except it will make you lose 75% of your current health points, and it has an area of effect as big as summons]]. She is also immune to debuffs and to normal attacks, thanks to the Reflex skill.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her weapon of choice.

to:

* KatanasAreJustBetter: Her weapon MightMakesRight: She subscribes to this philosophy, claiming that the world needs powerful beings. As she considers herself to be powerful, she deems herself worthy of choice.ruling over others.
* NotSoDifferent: After her first defeat, she claims that Cid and herself are no different, with both of them seeking power. Cid calmly rebuffs her, saying that power through destruction doesn't interest him.
* NotSoStoic: She acts collected, high and mighty, but she is genuinely surprised to see Luso in possession of a grimoire similar to her own. She immediatly attemps to destroy it, but the grimoire easily repels her sword strike and throws her against the wall.
