after over 330 hours, its finally time to say bye bye to Reddas...:-(


I would just like to preface my post with a link to short little video as small reminder for us what was in fact an integral role that Reddas played in the development and outcome of events in the game and story.

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fJZus5j-eVc

Before he was ever the dual wielding pink leggings sky pirate we have come to identify him as, seldom do we seem to recall that Reddas was in fact himself a judge magister known by the name Judge Zecht and served under the Archadian empire just a couple years prior to the events of the game.

During his service to the empire, Judge Zecht (Reddas) was ordered by Cid to test the potential power of deifacted nethicite and unwittingly obliterated the kingdom of Nabudis. Judge Zecht then abandoned judgehood to become a sky pirate and carried with him an incredible amount of contempt toward Cid for having manipulated him into destroying the land and people of Nabudis, as well as disdain for the destructive power of deifacted nethicite. It was around this time that he changed his name to Reddas to hide his previous identity as a judge magister serving the empire.

Here is link describing this forgotten bit of history for those who would like additional material on the subject to read into

https://finalfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Battle_of_Nabudis

The culmination of his character arc is seen at Draklor Laboratory where Reddas takes up the Sword of Kings to destroy the SunCryst and in the process sacrifices himself to save Dalmasca and prevents the airship Bahamut from reaching full power before the empire could attack Dalmasca with it. This in turn buys enough time for the rest of the team to board the airship and deliver a resounding blow to the empire.

When Ashe was trying to determine if she should use the power of nethicite against the empire at the risk of herself also becoming corrupt with power in the same way the empire did, there is a meaningful bit of dialogue exchanged ingame that would be appropriate to include

Do not forget Nabudis. That is my only counsel for you.

Reddas... speaking to Ashe.
just play the game... worry about your sanity afterwards ~riddlebox89

The Pharos, but yeah.
Everybody 1) is a genius, 2) is an alt, and 3) has bad taste.
