Final Fantasy Tactics to this day remains my all time favorite Final Fantasy ever.  Beautiful picture, and very intense.  I like!

I also liked the concept of Altima the Blood Angel as a final boss, even if the fight was a bit anti-climactic if you leveled up a lot before you got there.  I liked her first form better, they should have left it at that I think :). All Ultima is still one scary concept for a spell.

Yeah that was a messed up ending to a great but incredibly difficult game. Wow man, you almost never see fan art for the original Tactics! And it looks incredible. I love the Ivalice games and really wish they'd revisit that version of Final Fantasy; to me 12 was the last truly great one.

Beautifull picture, but the love between Ovelia and Delita, was at least in part false, and Delita kind-off broke Ovelia with his manipulations. The fact that Delita first abducted Ovelia, I think is meant to symbolize a paralell to the Stockholm Syndrome, even if Delita did save her there. I think might have in part at least started to really love Ovelia, but it could be in fact also the Lima Syndrome on his part.

In general, I think the Delita/Ovelia Relationship, is something of an deconstruction of a realationship with a "Bad Boy"(if unortodox one), and showing realistically(and tragically) how it could end.

Still, it's just my opinion, and the relationship is indeed very interesting.

Delitia, has ironically some similarities to the Lucavi, if we take into account from from Final Fantasy XII(which is a prequell to Tactics, with even the Lucavi as summons). The Lucavi, or Scions of Darkness, became what they are because they were mistreated by their creators, the Gods/the Occuria.

The Occuria/Gods even betrayed imprissoned, and essentially lobotomized Zodiac/Zodiark(the Lucavi merged with Elidibus/Elidibs), despite the fact Zodiac/Zodiark was crucial with defeating Altima/Ultima and the Lucavi. The Gods/Occuria done so, because they feared Zodac/Zodiark's great power(indeed, in his summon animation from FFXII, Zodiark is shown to be powerfull enouh to destroy the universe), but that still no excuse how handiling so horribly their most loyal servant and child, as Zodiark was basically Archangel Michael, to Ultima/Altima's Satan.


This all makes Ivalice all the more grim, as the Gods/Occuria, seem ultimatelly as bad, or even worse than Ultima/Altima and the Lucavi...

But as you see, there is a paralell between the Lucavi and Delita, both being mistreated, but later themselves becoming cruell manipulators...

Although on the other hand, Zodiac/Zodiark, also has similirities to Ramza, both being the vanquishers of Ultima/Altima, and both being framed as the villain despite their heroism.

Although with Zodiark, there is the grim possibility he went insane from his unjust punishment and imprissonment. On the other hand, he seems to be at least less evil than other Lucavi, and not working with them, as well, as giving Elidibus/Elidibs much more independence(Elidibus/Elidibs keeps his human name even in Lucavi form), with Elidibus/Elidibs and Zodiac/Zodiark seemingly co-piloting their shared body.

With both games(Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy Tactics), being in the same universe, and being originally written/directed by the same guy(Yasumi Matsuno), I doubt the similarities are accidental...

That scene was horribly tragic; I was hoping that Ovelia could at least come to trust her husband a little and restore his humanity at least somewhat. Good job nonetheless. I just wonder that if she could kill him so easily when he was wearing his armor, why do the knights even bother wearing them?

Well, sorry I coment so late, but while I like Delita, I think he kind-off caused this situation the most. He promised to release Ovelia from her Gilded Cage, but only put her deeper in it. The fact Delita went livid when Ovelia said he would sacrifice anyone, even Ramza, seems to imply she was right, and that's what infuriated Delita so much.

To be clear, I think Delita is quite understandable, and easy to sympathize were with his life, but he became quite ruthless when you think about.

Especially that there are argubly in Ivalice's history more noble anti-villains/anti-heroes. Delita's goals for example were ultimatelly largelly selfish, while Vayne, Cid and Venat from Final Fantasy XII, worked for the improvement of the world, and releasing it from enslavement to the Gods/Occuria. The heroes even partially adopt their goals.

Not to mention,  Vayne, Cid and Venat were very loyal towards each other, with Venat consoling Vanye after his failure, and sacrificing her/it's immortality, to give Vayne a chance at survival.

Also, about Delita's armor, it's implied he survived the stab, as official historical records state Delita ruled many decades.

Delita's had a hard life, no doubt about it, but that doesn't really justify how he turned out since not everyone who's had rough lives turn out like him. It also depends on the choices you make as well.

I always saw Delita as very human. His 'the ends justify the means' just went overboard. And in a way, this was pretty much a logical end to Delita's revenge: A noble and the world the nobles ruled had taken his sister, so he was going to tear it down.

You can download it and play it in a emulator, but If you know the story of FF tactics you will know that Delita manipulate a lot of events in FFT  and make the princess Ovelia fall in love with him, But in the end she realize that Delita is a bastard and kill him ( so it seems ) and he grabs the knife she stab on him and kill her with it D: very sad if you see the overall story, people say that Delita deserve it, but in my opinion... No :(
