FFVI Black Cowl Artwork

Official art from Final Fantasy VI.

There were some spies come into the barracks the other day, but they got away before we could nab 'em. They was wearin' black cowls just right, so as to not be seen. Don't get me wrong, I ain't praisin' 'em, but if you'd seen some o' them things they was wearin', made o' fine wool an' tyrant hide, you'd've been impressed too.
