Ultimecia is an evil sorceress from Final Fantasy VIII whose motivations are a bit hard to pin down. At first glance, she appears to have the same nihilistic love of nothingness that some of the other Final Fantasy villains have embraced. Her real drive, however, seems to be rooted in either fear or arrogance. She wants to rule all of time, all at once, forever through something she calls “time compression.” The story can get a bit wonky as time gets manipulated, but her power is never something to be questioned. She possesses powerful people, easily occupies positions of rulership, and envelopes the world in fear. More importantly, the English version of Ultimecia replaces the hard c sound with the “k” sound, which makes “time kompression,” even more badass.
