Wizard armors[edit]

All these parts can be worn by Relm and Strago, who are the best magic users in the game. Many of them can be worn by Tina/Terra and Celes, who have innate magic abilities.

On the other hand, none of them (or almost none) can be worn by Edgar, Cayenne/Cyan, Setzer and Umaro, who are some of the strongest physical fighters.
