|“||Mwahaha! You fools fell right into my trap! I AM Astos, King of the Dark Elves! With the combined power of the crown you now hold and the crystal eye I already possess... I will become the TRUE Elf King! It is useless to resist me! I can take what is mine by sheer force!||„|
Astos is a dark elf and the second major boss of Final Fantasy. He stole a glass eye from the witch Matoya, and plans on getting the crown of the former King of the Western Keep. With this, he believes, he will become powerful enough to rule over all elves. To make sure there would be no one to oppose him, he cursed the Elf Prince who was about to be declared King, and disguised himself as the King of Western Keep. When the Warriors of Light arrive he asks them to get his crown so that he may restore his castle, but after getting the crown Astos reveals his true form. After he is defeated the curse upon the Elf Prince dissapears, and all of the elves thank the Warriors of Light for their help.
