A flamboyant and narcissistic manipulator, Kuja is a humanoid construct created by the mysterious Garland as a means for inciting war upon the world of Gaia. After learning of his purpose -- and the dramatically shortened lifespan it promised -- Kuja suffered anger and despair to such great levels that his sorcerous powers were unlocked to their maximumdestructive potential through the 'Trance' ability. Even this could not change his cursed fate. From his lofty seat upon the airship Invincible, he now commands an army of Black Mage automata against Gaia's more peaceful folk, fulfilling his purpose as the Angel of Death. Though he puts on pompous airs -- often critiquing the fashion sense and unrefined manners of those around him -- he is much more than a vainglorious and eccentric warlord; he is also a powerful and capable wizard who wields the forces of Black and White magics with equal potency. But despite his power and feigned confidence, the specter of his too-short life continues to haunt him. He knows his end is coming, and he will do anything to prolong his existence...
Life Limit: Garland only intended Kuja to be a 'temporary' Angel of Death, and so installed a limitation on Kuja's lifespan. It is unclear how long Kuja might have to live; it could be a year, it could be a matter of weeks. He is obsessed with overcoming this limitation, and will stop at nothing to do so, since he believes the world just can't continue on without him.
Narcissistic: Vainglorious and refined, Kuja reviles those he deems ugly or beneath him. His refined and pompous attitude colors literally every aspect of dealing with him. His standards for luxury and living are ridiculous, shunning even the generosity of others if it is not deemed sufficient. He is at best a vain and pompous wretch, at worst an annoying and eccentric fop.
Cruel: Despite his eccentric and colorful behavior, Kuja is exceptionally cruel, befitting his masquerade as a slave whip wielding nobleman. He's unlikely to inspire a lot of loyalty or respect, maybe fear, but not respect. He has caused grievous harm and death in his exploits in inciting war, indeed acting as a saboteur on Gaia. One could say to do these things is in his very nature.Immature: While not exactly child-like, Kuja speaks in a boyish and eccentric fashion, weaving prose and cheer into his words, and referring to others as if they are already familiar. Along with his elegant charade his immature behavior can make Kuja seem a bit strange, to say the least, though a cultured act to make himself endearing to others. He is somewhat emotionally stunted, due to being created as an adult, and thus never experienced a childhood.
