Black Waltz 2-FFIX

Black Waltz 1-FFIX


The three Black Waltzes (黒のワルツ, Kuro no Warutsu?) are special, winged black mages manufactured by Zorn and Thorn in Final Fantasy IX to apprehend Princess Garnet. They are many times more powerful than regular black mages, but their vast magical power means they have a shorter life expectancy, and are more volatile in nature.
