Biography

Celes is a young magic user and a general for the Empire alongside Kefka and Leo, having been groomed by the Empire since childhood to be a magic-using soldier. Celes is imprisoned in South Figaro early in the events of Final Fantasy VI for betraying the Empire for reasons unclear; Celes escapes captivity with the help of Locke when he infiltrates South Figaro for the Returners. She assists the Returners in the defense of Narshe, the journey to the eastern continent, the assault on the Imperial continent, and the mission to Thamasa.

There's more! But you need to turn on spoilers to see it.

Gameplay

Similar to Terra, Celes learns several magic spells without the aid of Magicite, can equip powerful swords and heavy armor without a RelicMerit Award, and has naturally high magic power; her stats are all average or better. Celes is a valuable teammate for a large portion of the game. Celes's Runic skill nullifies any magic spell cast by the enemy or your party and grants MP equal to its cost to Celes, allowing her to employ anti-magic tactics in combat, notably the fight against Tunnel Armor.

Celes, like Terra, can also learn magic naturally as she levels.

Level 1: OBlizzard
Level 4: OCure
Level 8: OPoisona
Level 13: OImp
Level 18: OLibra
Level 22: OProtect
Level 26: OBlizzara
Level 32: OHaste and OConfuse
Level 40: OBerserk
Level 42: OBlizzaga
Level 48: OVanish
Level 52: OHastega
Level 72: OHoly
Level 81: OFlare
Level 98: OMeteor

Interestingly, Celes will only learn OConfuse at level 32 if she's in the party at the time or if she's at or above that level when you meet her. Otherwise she can only learn it via EsperCait Sith.

Special Skill: Runic

Runic disables Celes as a character, and sets her up as an advanced lightning rod: any Magic will be absorbed by her Runic blade and converted into MP. The only drawbacks here are that Celes can't act and the fact that should Celes have absorbed the spell in the first place by means of elemental properties (say, she absorbs OBlizzara by means of her ShieldIce Shield), absorbing it with the Runic blade will damage her MP.

When Celes has absorbed a spell, she won't absorb any other spells until you command her to use Runic again.

Also, take note that Celes will be more than happy to absorb Magic your own characters cast. She can't absorb all standard magic spells; she will fail at these:
She can also absorb a handful of enemy attacks.
