Celes Chere

"Product of genetic engineering, battle hardened Magitek-Knight, with a spirit as pure as snow..."

Celes Chere This woman's beauty hides her raw grit and powerful abilities. When you first meet Celes, she is an Imperial prisoner, but it turns out that she was once one of the Empire's generals. Genetically engineered by the Empire to kill without question, she turns against it to prove a powerful ally. As an ally, she is a strong fighter and her Runic Blade may just save your entire party on several occasions. Like Terra, she is blessed with the "gift" of magic, although hers are present due to a genetic process involving Magicite. Because of this, she will develop powerful magic skills without difficulty.

Class Runic Knight
Age 18
Height 5'9"
Weight 165 lbs.

Special Skill: Runic Blade

Celes has the unique ability of Runic, which absorbs any spell used during a round of action. Generally she receives the MP that the spell cost to use, but equipment can effect this value. It should be noted that some of the spells that can be absorbed are enemy-specific ones. Below is a list of what the Runic skill can absorb:

  • Cure, Cure2, Cure3
  • Antdot
  • Remedy
  • Life, Life2, Life3
  • Regen
  • Fire, Fire2, Fire3
  • Ice, Ice2, Ice3
  • Bolt, Bolt2, Bolt3
  • Poison
  • Bio
  • Drain
  • Break
  • Doom
  • Pearl
  • Flare
  • Demi
  • Quartr
  • X-Zone
  • Ultima
  • Scan
  • Slow, Slow2
  • Haste, Haste2
  • Rasp
  • Osmose
  • Mute
  • Safe
  • Shell
  • Sleep
  • Muddle
  • Stop
  • Bserk
  • Float
  • Imp
  • Rflect
  • Vanish
  • Dispel
  • Enemy Skill: Atomic Ray
  • Enemy Skill: N. Cross
  • Enemy Skill: Diffuser
  • Enemy Skill: Tek Laser

Note: If Celes/Gogo has protective armor against various elements, the amount of MP absorbed will be affected. Usually, absorption of spells is the same amount of MP it takes to cast the spell. If an armor has 50% Damage against Fire, using Runic with Fire will only get you 2 MP instead of 4. Also, if the armor says that an element has no effect, you won't get any MP. This might be the case commonly with Celes, since she can use Minerva, powerful armor with lots of magic protection.
