A bewitching sorceress who wielded vast magic powers to bring Galbadia under her control. She harbors a deep-seated hatred of SeeD, and she works tirelessly to see them destroyed.
Edea is an enemy and a playable character who could initially be recruited during the Challenge Event Broken Chains as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Galabadia Garden on the Classic difficulty, this being a reference to Final Fantasy VIII where after the battle at the Garden she became a guest character.
Edea first appeared as a boss enemy within the later dungeons of the To Slay a Sorceress event. Like her source, Edea attacked with powerful magic, her role seemingly to stall the party from progressing through the event. She occasionally cast Protect and Shell on herself to soften the blows, but with a strong party, she was easily vanquished.
Later upgrades to the game backend placed Edea, together with Seifer, as the final boss of the Record of Galbadia Garden, Part 3. Here, she added powerful spells including Maelstrom, which deals Gravity-type damage to the party. Defeating the pair unlocks Zell's Character Record.
Edea is a Sorceress, whose combat role is Offensive Magic.
Edea completes a triumvirate of spellcasters focused solely on black magic, the other two being Vivi and Lulu from the following two games in the series. Her statistical progression mirrors that of Krile from Final Fantasy V, yet her inclusion gives the Final Fantasy VIII delegation another source of offensive firepower. Like Lulu who came before her, Edea suffers from a gross lack of Speed and should be supported with fast attackers and buffers who can give her the time she needs to cast spells.
Her default Soul Break is Astral Punch, which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment deals two magic non-elemental attacks to one target.
She can equip accessories.
Edea is represented in Thunder-elemental cards. One pictures her render with the words "Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec" inscribed in front of her, one uses her Final Fantasy VIII official artwork, and one is her appearance in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call.
Edea appears on a Triple Triad card.
