Xande was a main villain from Final Fantasy III. 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 Cloud of Darkness. For centuries he lived unopposed until the Warriors of Light defeated him and his legion of monsters putting a stop to his nefarious schemes once and for all.
Xande's default appearance is based on his Amano artwork. His skin is a deep black, while his facial hair is stark white. He dons baggy golden pants and a white cape. In addition, he wields his battle staff which hovers around the vicinity of his right arm at all times.
His first alternate 'Mortal Demon' outfit is based on his NES battle sprite, giving him a more vampiric appearance. His skin, hair and cape are recolored navy with orange accents thrown in.
His second alternate outfit 'Cloned Mortal' is based on the appearance of the Xande clones, recoloring his body orange, his pants sea green and his cap red.
His Manikin version, Counterfeit Mortal, is light green.
Xande is a Battlemage, who is able to combo his Brave Attacks by chaining his attacks from the Physical Branch to attacks of the Magical Branch.
