"A once immortal wizard who commands a terrible magic stolen from the crystals themselves." 


Xande is a playable character and villain from Final Fantasy III.

In his original game he was the greatest student of the immortal Archmagus Noah, and when Noah passed from the world he gave Xande the gift of mortality. Feeling spurnned by his master, Xande sought a way to escape his inevitable demise and sought to stop time itself by draining the four crystals of their power and creating the Flood of Darkness. For centuries he lived on unopposed until the Warriors of Light defeated him and his legion of monsters putting a stop to his nefarious schemes once and for all.

In the storyline he swore alliegence to Barthandelus and and aided the fal'cie with his schemes to bring about an ultimate end to the cycle and the meaningless servitude to the gods with the promise that he would emerge from this with eternal life. To this end he confronted the heroes and became enraptured with a vicious rivalry with his moral opposite the young Black Mage Vivi.



In Xande's regular form he wears long blue cape with a high collar with a dominantly blue sash and yellow pants. In his EX Mode Xande more closely resembles his NES sprite his hair becoming much shorter and his skin becoming blue and face more demonic.

In his first alternate outfit Xande's Clone, changes Xande's body to become a red palette swap based on the enemy of the same name.

In his second alternate outfit Azure Carapace, Xande's body changes to reflect his DS design, becoming a bluish silver hue rather then a jet black carapace and his hair becomes slicked back and much shorter rather then its normal mullet style.

Xande's DLC costume Lord of the Crystal Tower is based on Xande's design from Final Fantasy XIV making his sking a navy colour with red hands bearing long white claws and giving and prounounced yellow veins cover his body. 

His Manikin is green and called the Counterfeit Magus.


Xande is described as a Crystal Corrupter, which means he commands shards of the four crystals of light to do his bidding. Xande's spells take effect by him channeling energy into the crystals and he can place these crystals throughout the battlefield to give his strategy more depth.
