From Final Fantasy Wiki

"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 Sei Tenshi Arutema lit. Ultima, the Holy Angel) is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Holy, she represents the Zodiac sign of Virgo, the Virgin. Ultima does, like her title suggests, resemble an angel, sometimes used to represent purity or divinity. From her power of Holy, her color sign is White. She is also referred to as the Kanya Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology. She is based on the Final Boss from Final Fantasy Tactics, Ultima. Although the form she is shown as is the same as the totema of the Nu Mou from FF Tactics Advance.




Final Fantasy XII

For the enemy page, see Ultima (Final Fantasy XII)

Ultima is located in the highest reaches of the Great Crystal in Giruvegan. Considering how big this place 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.

Ultima can be unlocked in the Sky Pirate's Den in the Clan Primer. By defeating her, the player receives the title of Fell Angel.



Redemption: A Holy Elemental attack, it's rather powerful, and preferable over her ultimate attack.

Eschaton: A Holy Elemental attack, and Ultima's ultimate attack. Flying deep into space, Ultima charges her cannon under her feet. She charges it up, and when it's ready, she opens her eyes with a terrifying expression, unleashing a beam of holy energy onto the earth. The enemies in range are surrounded with dazzling light first, until the light disappears from the targeted enemy, and finally a blast of concentrated holy energy annihilates all the enemies with a series of devastating explosions that grow exceedingly large.

Eschaton is subject to the damage cap of 9999, and it proves to be a difficult attack to use because of the requirement that both the summoner and Ultima must have critical HP.

The word Eschaton is related to Eschatology, a branch of theology which describes either a particular model of the end of the world or the study of such models, so it is a good replacement word for the more common "Complete Ultima".
