The plot of Final Fantasy VI (originally released as part III in the United States) follows a diverse group of characters as they first try to bring peace by stopping the Empire. After the Emperor's top general, Kefka, betrays him and takes power, the world is destroyed from the misalignment of the three Goddess Statues. One year later, the warriors must reunite and stop Kefka once and for all. Some of the characters include the mysterious Terra, a woman who knows little of her past, but was born with magic powers, Cyan, a Knight of the fallen kingdom of Doma, Locke, a treasure hunter, Celes, a former Empire general artificially infused with magic, and many more. The games plot contains screwball comedy, intense drama, and hits every emotional chord in between. Written by Annonymous
