Story[edit | edit source]
Lost Chapter: Raise the Runic Blade[edit | edit source]
Celes appears in open fields and is quickly forced to fight her way through the waves of monsters created by the nearby Torsion. She is relieved when she sees Setzer and Cyan, but soon realizes that something is wrong because they do not speak and appear crystalline. Realizing they are imitations, Celes defeats them.
When the real Setzer, along with the rest of the party, find her, Celes takes them for more manikins and prepares to attack until Setzer proves his bona fides by reciting what he knows about her. When the others tell her that there are more friends from her world, Celes realizes that Kefka is also there and asks to join their ranks.
Celes and Terra discuss the manikins and their origins. According to Mog, they are created by Spiritus, but this brings up the topic of Mog's trustworthiness and the group argues. It is agreed that the manikins seem to originate from Torsions, and that they only take the form of people already in the world. Celes speculates that Spiritus creates them after a new person enters the world and puts them under the command of his own warriors. She and Terra decide to ask Mog for more information, but Shadow remarks after they leave that they are wasting their time.
Act 2, Chapter 5: Will of the Hunters[edit | edit source]
Celes is part of the group that happens upon Noel Kreiss while exploring an abandoned city which takes on the appearance of the Imperial capital of Vector from her world. At the direction of Ultimecia they pursue Kefka, who has kidnapped the dark manikins of Celes and Terra and sowed within them the seeds of a dimension-destroying monster known as the Blackened Will.
The warriors of Materia chase Kefka onto a surrogate rendition of the Floating Continent, they find the discarded bodies of many of their dark manikins, stripped of their brilliance. Celes comforts Krile, who is shocked by the sight of the pile of their bodies. While looking for survivors, they stumble upon the distressed and badly injured dark manikin of Locke Cole. Locke tells them that he has failed to protect the dark manikins of Celes and Terra from Kefka and directs them to Kefka's final location. After dark manikin Locke's death, Celes ponders the apparent notion that dark manikins are easily manipulated with Noel and Krile, which seems far less certain after what they have just witnessed.
Celes and her compatriots confront Kefka but fail to destroy the Blackened Will, which escapes during their battle and begins to destroy the world - including the surrogate Floating Continent. They are forced to flee aboard Setzer's airship, but chase Kefka through a torsion opened up by Spiritus and Materia into a corrupted version of the World of Illusions.
