Fun to finally meet Celes's identical not-twin.

Well, I guess getting kidnapped by Ultros is bad, but it's certainly no getting kidnapped by the creep Setzer... dry.gif dry2.gif tongue.gif

See, if Ultros had a brain, he'd notice that helplessly screaming for someone to save her couldn't possibly be any more out of character for Celes.

So who's the "strange little girl"?

My very off-the-cuff answer, the Sovereign or one of her avatars (that is, a Touched).

The "strange little girl" delayed Maria (there may also have been the intent to delay the wedding, by forcing the heroes to go rescue Maria, thrown off by the fact that they didn't wait), thus Ultros had the opportunity to kidnap her.

The strange girl reminds me of the Shard bearer.

Anyone else think Maria was the Sovereign in Celes form? Just me?

DIVIDE BY ZERO ERROR

Anyway, I wonder if anything'll come of Chupon's new-found love for Ultros? (Also, this explains why Chupon was watching Ultros sleep during the wedding.)

Oh, did anyone here start thinking of Super Mario RPG when Chupon was talking, or was that just me?

See, I thought Touched, until she started shrieking like a veteran princess. I think she's clean.

By the way, I like the inversion of the opera-house plan, here. This time, Maria is Celes's decoy. I love it.

Ya know, he meets Celes all of twice or three times in the entire game, provided you take her to the second and third time. First time, she's acting the part of Maria. Second time, airship battle. Third time, coliseum.

He never really gets to see much of Celes.

My immediate thoughts in both cases as well.

I'm not sure the Sovereign could or would speak without purple text... Maria's text was white before she even appeared on-panel.

Not to mention that Celes isn't royalty.

This may sound a bit crazy, but I think Chupon is not in love with Ultros.

I think Chupon is in love with the cat you see in his close-up.

In any case, it's not anyone in Celes's form. Maria just happens to look a lot like Celes. It's perhaps FFVI's most suspiciously convenient plot point. It just so happens that Celes looks like the woman that the man with the only airship in the world wants to abduct.

Maria has purple hair ties, but Celes has blue. This obviously means she has some as of yet unidentified version of being touched. Or she's only slightly touched. Or her only talents are getting knocked out by more important characters and singing in cut-scenes, so this is the manifestation of her powers.

Or she's only being used a little for now.

No, I thought that too for a minute. And, no she isn't royalty, but it has not yet been established that a "royal" form is a necessity and not merely a preference.

How would we know if we haven't even seen her? Also, for the shard bearer to be in this world would require a hithertofore unknown gate between there and Nexus. Wouldn't you have thought that we would have a blink-and-you'll-miss-it type of reference to such a gate before now?

EDIT: That "cat" is a fur cloak that's shaped like a cat.

It's a flimsy pretext, but I'm sure that the N-Team have gotten away with worse.

Wasn't she referred to as the strange little girl when she first took the Shard from Rydia?

It was more a fleeting thought on first glance from the purple hairties.

I didn't notice the purple hair-ties at first. That is odd.

It could be to distinguish her from Celes' blue hair-ties, but yeah, coincidences, Videoland, yadda yadda...

If we go with the little girl as being an agent of the Sovereign (such as it is), she could have been touched (thus the purple hair ties), but given that Maria basically never appears in the game, it might not have worked right.

Or, y'know, it could just be a matter of personal preference as to the hair ties. Geez, I know there are very few coincidences in Videoland, but realize that not *everything* means something.
