The High court of Yevon is now in session.Maester Kelk Ronso at the opening of Yuna's Trial
Kelk Ronso is the leader of the Ronso, and a Maester of Yevon in Final Fantasy X. According to the Final Fantasy X Scenario Ultimania Kelk is the Minister of Civil Affairs within Yevon, which is in charge of the judiciary, treasury and general civil administration. Kelk has human-like speech and sophisticated mannerism, quite unlike the broken English spoken by most other Ronso. Maester Kelk Ronso is voiced by Corey Burton, who also voiced Tromell.
According to Final Fantasy X Ultimania Omega, both Jyscal, the leader of the Guado, and Kelk, leader of the Ronso, became Maesters of Yevon as part of Grand Maester Yo Mika's "sub-races appeasement policy." Kelk is in charge of administering Spira's judicial system and puts summoner Yuna and her guardians on trial for the murder of Maester Seymour. He is the only one of the Maesters unaware that Seymour had killed his father, Jyscal, and learning it troubles him. Following Yuna's sentencing, Kelk has had enough with Yevon's hidden secrets and betrayals, and returns to Mt. Gagazet hoping to find honesty and order in his mountain home.
When Yuna and her guardians reach the Mountain Gate, Kelk denies them passage up the sacred mountain because of their interactions with the Al Bhed and Yevon. Upon realizing Yuna is willing to sacrifice herself for the good of Spira even after turning her back on Yevon, he praises her resolve, and lets them pass.
Shortly after, Seymour advances the mountain intent on continuing his mission to become Sin. Kelk had promised Yuna and her guardians he and the Ronso would bar the path of any intruders wishing them harm. When Seymour is prevented passage he slays every Ronso in his path, including Kelk.
- Kelk is the only Maester who is neither seen nor mentioned in Final Fantasy X-2. Seymour's influence upon the Guado left grave repercussions in Final Fantasy X-2 and he appears as a boss in Final Fantasy X-2: Last Mission. Wen Kinoc, Jyscal, and Yo Mika appear in Via Infinito as fiends. Kelk's absence from Final Fantasy X-2 suggests he had accepted his death at Seymour's hand.
