An executive officer in the Narshe attack forces. Attacks with Virite and SilverPike. He's weak vs. Fire, so use Terra's Fire magic if she's in the party.
Final Fantasy VI PlayStation Bestiary entry

The Hell's Rider (simply abbreviated as Rider in some translations) is a boss in Final Fantasy VI. It is battled during the imperial attack on Narshe and patrols in front of Kefka. The player can avoid the Hell's Rider, but it is difficult. If the player does manage to avoid it, it will still be there running back and forth in the World of Ruin.

Hell's Rider fights alone, a trait he shares with his three palette swap counterparts: Dante, Test Rider, and Death Rider. The Hell's Rider uses normal attacks, Venomist to inflict Poison on the party, and its special attack, Silver Lance, a strong physical blow. It counters attacks with Reverse Polarity, shifting the attacker's row. Locke can steal a valuable Mythril Vest from it, but the Rider will counter with Silver Lance.

The best way to deal with it is to have Gau use the Mu Rage and hope Snare is used, or use the Commander Rage and hope it uses Break, killing the Hell's Rider instantly. Another method is to have Cyan use Tiger on it to halve its HP and give it Sap.

The Rider is one of the few non-randomly encountered enemies to appear on the Veldt and have a Rage.
