Archadian Judges

The Archadian Judges from Final Fantasy XII.

The Judges are a recurring element in the Final Fantasy titles that exist in the Ivalice universe. Generally, Judges are the keepers of law and have held this position since their initial appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

The in-game moderators, Game Masters (or GM's), appeared in the form of Judges, and were capable of using exclusive magic and abilities.
