|A lot of people say that Sephiroth is the greatest Final Fantasy villain, but in my opinion, that honour goes to Kefka. Sephiroth goes off the rails after discovering the truth about his origins, whereas Kefka doesn't have any reason at all to act the way he does, he's just a complete psychotic sociopath.|
He starts out as the court mage under Emperor Gestahl, but he eventually overthrows him in his ascension to godhood.
I really love Kefka in all his madness, he's definitely among the top few on the list of my favourite villains! Not to mention I adore his design, I think I have a thing for jesters!
I'm really going for Amano's designs for him, but I will be checking the Dissidia references occasionally for some guidance, though not explicitly, as some things are slightly off from the original game.
