Illua is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. A high-ranking member of the crime syndicate Khamja, she is a merciless woman in search of power, armed with a beautifully adorned katana.
In the Dissidian Wars, although technically on the Chaos side, Illua did not truly ally herself with either side. During a confrontation with her, Adelle began regaining her memories. Once she succeeded in regaining all her memories she challenged Illua. The ensuing battle was however unclear in the victor as the cycle restarted and they were both removed in their damaged states.
Illua’s basic attire is based off of her in-game appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics A2, . In EX Mode, Illua fuses with Neukmia (the demon of the Rift), covering her arms and chest in Neukmia's purplish stone-like body.
Her alternative costume 'Night Shade' is a pallete swap, colouring Illua's clothing in blacks and silvers. In EX Mode, the covering is more silver-hued.
The 3rd costume 'Ninja's Garb', dresses her in her disciple Ewen's clothing, dull green linen ninja clothing. In EX Mode, the covering is blue-hued
As a Void Trapper, Illua fights with attacks that surround the opponent and deal constant damage until the opponent escapes from her attacks. Due to this style it is difficult to evade them and not be slightly caught in her attacks, her speed and attack is slightly above average but there are many characters with higher stats, her main weakness is that as her attacks are mainly long ranged her closer-ranged attacks are easy to avoid and weaker.

In a similar manner to Cloud of Darkness, fill a bar to 100% by holding O. As the bar fills Illua creates several White Holes around opponent, eventually the Rift will open, and if the Bar fills to 100% in time the Rift stays open and deals the final blow as Neukmia strikes out of it. If not Illua will finish by casting Apocalypse.
