StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Saint Ajora Glabados, the founder of the corrupt Church of Glabados, serves as her host body. Ultima was killed 1,200 years ago and the goal of the other Lucavi, led by Hashmal in her absence, is to resurrect her. Once that is done the Lucavi will have no need of auracite or the vessels they inhabit and will be able to come and go as they please.

FFT-Final-Battle

Ultima at Airship Graveyard.

Ultima needs a person as a host body, but the only suitable host is Ramza Beoulve's younger sister, Alma. Ultima can be resurrected at is the Airship Graveyard in the Necrohol of Mullonde but to get there, the Lucavi must use a portal hidden in Orbonne Monastery.

As her title "Angel of Blood" implies, the resurrection requires a grand amount of blood be shed. The Lucavi use the Glabados Church's influence to evoke the War of the Lions, but Hashmal discovers this has not resulted in enough bloodshed, and takes his own life to complete the ritual.

Ultima is resurrected and possesses Alma and attack's Ramza's party. Alma breaks free and Ultima manifests as a demonic being, but is killed by Ramza and his allies.


BattleEdit

FFT Ultima Portrait 2

Ultima, the Arch Seraph.

Your soul itself shall not escape my wrath!
—Ultima, the Arch Seraph

Ultima appears as a powerful demon reminiscent of a succubus. She begins the fight by summoning four Ultima Demons to aid her.

In her first form Ultima uses several powerful attacks including a version of Ultima more powerful than Ramza's; Alma and Ramza cannot learn this version, although they can learn their version from the Ultima Demons. Her physical attack consists ofher taking both swords from the sides of her legs and slashing the target.

After enough damage has been inflicted on Ultima, she transforms into a giant skeletal monstrosity. This form of Ultima is even more powerful, packs more Hit Points and can cast more powerful spells like Divine Ultima, her most powerful move, and Grand Cross, which causes a plethora of status effects, including Petrify. When this form is defeated, Ultima gathers up even more power in a final effort to preserve her life, but ends up causing a tremendous explosion, which destroys the Airship Graveyard.

Ultima's first form is level 56 with 70 Bravery and Faith, and has roughly 1400 HP and 480 MP. She is immune to all negative statuses except Disable, Blind, and Slow, and has access to the Arcane Magick and Chaos commands, as well as the abilities Brawler, Master Teleportation, and Absorb MP. In her final form, she is level 66 with 70 Bravery and 60 Faith, and has roughly 3235 HP and 450 MP.

She comes with Divine Magicks and Divine Providence, as well as Faith Boost, Brawler, Master Teleportation, and Swiftness. She is immune to all negative statuses except Slow and Immobilize. Both forms have permanent Float, which makes Ultima immune to Earth-based attacks, and also increases her height by 1 more than where she is standing (if she's standing on a height 1, she is actually on height 2).

Trouble with the audio sample?

"Altima, the Perfect Body" is the final boss theme from Final Fantasy Tactics, though was renamed "Heartless Hellion" in the Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions version.

Trouble with the audio sample?

It radically differs from "Altima, the Nice Body", which is used during the first half of the battle, when Ultima is in her humanoid "High Seraph" form. When Ultima transforms into her monstrous "Arch Seraph" form, this song starts. The song gives the sense of destruction and doom, especially with the final few notes prior to the repeat.

EtymologyEdit

[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.

It has also been known as the Bloody Angel. [view  · edit  · purge]An angel is a supernatural being in various religions and mythologies. In Zoroastrianism and Abrahamic religions they are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles include protecting and guiding humans and carrying out God's tasks. The term "angel" has been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. In art, angels are often depicted with bird-like wings, a halo, robes and glowing light.

A fallen angel is a wicked or rebellious angel that has been cast out of heaven.

Its role as the leader of the Lucavi could allude to the role of an archangel. [view  · edit  · purge]An archangel is an angel of high rank. Beings similar to archangels are found in a number of religious traditions, but the word "archangel" is usually associated with Abrahamic religions. The word is derived from the Greek ἀρχάγγελος (arch- + angel, literally chief angel).

TriviaEdit

  • The quote of Ultima in the PS version, "Open 7 doors to reach the tower of power! Ultima!" refers to the seven doors leading to the Ultima tome in the Mysidian Tower in Final Fantasy II.
