FFXII - Espers - Zeromus, the Condemner
Honoring the law more than any other, a scion of holy order and condemner of criminals. Created in opposition to Knight-Star Pashtarot, scion of light. He turns his deep, abiding hatred for those who break the law into living darkness, therein to plunge the guilty in fell judgment. Over time, he came to care less for upholding the law and more for condemnation, and so tainted by hate, he sought to condemn the gods themselves to death. Thus did he earn the title of "The Condemner," and thus did he fall from grace.
Previously seen in: Final Fantasy IV as the final boss.
Location: Stilshrine of Miriam, Throne of Veiled Gods. Several steps to do before you can encounter him: First, talk to an acolyte near the temple on Mt Bur-Omisace. He'll give you the "Stone of the Condemner". Now, return to the Stilshrine of Miriam, touch the Way Stone in "Ward of Measure", and use the Stone of the Condemner when the Way Stone prompts you to. You'll be warped to Throne of Veiled Gods, and upon entering the room, be thrust into battle.

Advice: "Dark Lords" (Level 47, HP 4616, Undead, Weak: Holy) frequently spawn around Zeromus over the course of the fight. Zeromus himself is a bit of a cakewalk, even without magicks. Just make sure your magick-based gambits are set to items... main items of interest should be X-Potions (for curing - they should be buyable at this point in the game), Phoenix Downs (for reviving), and Chronos Tear (to remove Stop). If you really want to, use Motes as a way of getting around the no-magicks rule. But other than frequently-spawning Dark Lords, his gravity attacks are endurable and there shouldn't be too much of a problem.
