Erutan (real name, Kate Covington, also known by her internet name katethegreat19), is a singer/songwriter who has made several unofficial vocal arrangements of themes from the music of the Final Fantasy series. Erutan performs and arranges her work by herself, able to play the violin, the piano, the lyre, the guitar, several types of drums, and an array of other musical instruments. If the theme she covers lacks lyrics, she writes them herself, keeping in mind the mood and atmosphere of the tune.
Kate Covington started playing music at age two and went on to win many competitions in classical violin. She is an avid gamer and a fan of the Final Fantasy series. At age 16, she decided she wanted to compose music for video games and began practising music composition at the piano; she began producing songs and then turned to singing.
Erutan released her first original album titled Raindancer on November 22nd 2010 on her official website. Her second album, A Bard's Side Quest, was released as an iTunes-exclusive on January 19th 2013. The album featured most of her Final Fantasy covers as licensed, studio-mastered tracks, besides a selection of other tracks featured in different video games. (more...)
Screenshot of the Final Fantasy Band in the iOS release of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Band attacks combine the skills of several party members to unleash a very powerful technique, usually a powerful attack but sometimes a healing or buffing skill. The Final Fantasy Band combines the signature skills of the original final five party members of Final Fantasy IV - Cecil's Attack, Kain's Jump, Rosa's White Magic, Rydia's Black Magic, and Edge's Throw. The Band does heavy damage to one enemy, breaking the damage limit, and healing the party.
The Band's name is one of several uses of the actual term "Final Fantasy" in the series, which is snuck in as a pun in many cases, such as Gilgamesh's "Ultimate Illusion" or Chaos's "Brink of Delusion".
