"Hmph! You're not even as attractive as I thought you'd be..."
—Matoya, upon regaining her vision

Matoya (マトーヤ Matōya) is a witch from the original Final Fantasy who lives in a cave. She cannot see without the use of a special crystal eye, which was stolen from her by the sorcerer Astos. The Warriors of Light are able to recover her crystal eye by defeating Astos, and recruit her help in reviving the Prince of Elfheim.
