An apparition foretold to appear and send the world back to nothing when the balance between light and darkness is severed. Although appearing as a woman, the true nature of this being remains unknown.
An existence that wishes for all to return to nothingness. She has transcended the abstract and is the embodiment of fear.—Dissidia Final Fantasy description
The Cloud of Darkness is the embodiment of nothingness. Ancient, or rather timeless, it’s the only directive is to cause a flood of darkness and reduce the world to nothingness. Besides achieving its objective, the Cloud of Darkness doesn’t care about the affairs of anyone, even its teammates.
Cloud of Darkness: “You dismiss us as mere pawns in this conflict. Yet you yourself struggle; fret over your plans.”
It is an emissary of the Void; all will return eventually, according to it.
Cloud of Darkness: “In the end of infinite solitude– Disorder shrouds the world in darkness. And now, all things belong in our arms.”
Cloud of Darkness: “With the gates to the Void wide open, you are already dissolving into darkness. There is nothing more you can do.”
So then, when did Chaos summon the Cloud of Darkness to World B? Chaos may not have summoned it at all. Cloud of Darkness doesn’t manifest until Xande foolishly summons it. However, neither Time nor Space bounds the Cloud of Darkness. It can appear whenever, and wherever, in the timeline.
It is of the Void and thus exists in the spaces of the Interdimensional Rift. However, Cloud of Darkness, like the Void, is eternal. Our heroes can never truly destroy the Cloud of Darkness, only tame it.
Cloud of Darkness: “Such interesting creatures. But there is no escaping the fate of doom. We will be waiting– among the clouds in the Void…”
