Kefka Palazzo (Final Boss)They stood before Kefka as he flaunted his power and told them their lives were meaningless and insignificant. The Returners replied that he was wrong and gave him their reasons for living, but Kefka refused to accept this and turned the Light of Judgment on the world. The Returners attacked and Kefka fought them in the form of a divine being.

Blue mage may learn this ability as a 8th level spell (Knowledge: Planes DC 31).

For a number of rounds equal to 1 + 1 round for every four HD, Kefka can use the Doublecast ability from the black mage ability list but has a 30% chance to change any of the spells currently cast. Check from his current list roll a 1d10 to determine what spell level it will be changed to. He still uses the same MP from the spell he was originally going to cast even if the replacement spell is lesser or higher. This limit break requires only a swift action to activate.
