Ffxii espers ultima
Masterpiece among the scions created by the gods, and the mastermind of the plot to rise against them. Prior to her betrayal, she was tasked with guiding souls to heaven and aiding in their reincarnation. Called the High Seraph for her angelic wings of glimmering gold, yet it was on wings of deepest black that the tainted angel Ultima rose against the gods. Since her fall, her heart is without light, and impossible to know.
Clan Primer Bio

Ultima, the High Seraph (聖天使アルテマ, Seitenshi Arutema?, lit. Ultima, the Holy Angel) is the name of a recurring summon and entity in Ivalice. She is associated with the Holy element, her color sign is Golden Yellow, and she represents the Zodiac sign of Virgo, the Virgin. While she first appeared in Final Fantasy Tactics, her most prominent design is based on Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.


Final Fantasy XIIEdit

For the battle information, see: Ultima (Final Fantasy XII Boss)

Ultima is an optional Esper located in the deepest reaches of the Great Crystal in Giruvegan. Considering how big the Great Crystal is, and that only chosen people can use the waystones, Ultima seems to have been stored in a place where the Occuria can easily keep track of her. She is arguably one of the more difficult bosses of the game.

Defeating Ultima rewards her icon in the Sky Pirate's Den in the Clan Primer, earning the player the title of "Fell Angel".



Ultima's license costs 90 LP, and she requires three Mist Charges to summon. Her basic attack is Redemption, a powerful Holy-elemental attack. Her ultimate attack is Eschaton, where Ultima flies into space and charges the cannon under her dress to blast all enemies with a ray of Holy-elemental light. However, it is difficult to use due to the requirement that both Ultima and her summoner must be in critical HP before she will use it. In the International version of the game, however, the player can use her ultimate attack whenever they may wish as Espers can be controlled manually.

[view  · edit  · purge]Ultima is Latin, and in many of today's Latin-based languages, for "The Last", in its feminine sense. However in the Spanish versions of many Final Fantasy games the spell name is "Artema", a more close translation of the original Japanese katakana. Ultima is referred to as the Kanya Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish astrology. The name of Ultima's trademark attack Eschaton refers to the end of the world. It is from this term that the word "Eschatology" is taken, a branch of theology that refers to the study of end times.


  • Defeating Ultima in Final Fantasy XII adds her sprite to the game's Sky Pirate's Den and awards the player with the title of "Fell Angel".
