Judge Ghis is a non-playable character from Final Fantasy XII. Ghis is the leader of the Imperial 8th Fleet whose base is the airship Leviathan. He captures Ashe from the Garamsythe Waterway, and when the party sneaks onto the airship, they encounter Ghis who tells them Ashe's true identity as Princess of Dalmasca. After the party escapes, they encounter Ghis once again at the hangar as a boss fight.
Later in the game he captures the party again at the Tomb of Raithwall, where he takes the Dawn Shard from them. In order to test its power, he orders that the Dawn Shard be placed in the engine of the airship. The shard however destroys the engine, killing Ghis in the resulting explosion.

Ghis hits hard physically with his two swords and also with magic, and can KO any character whose HP is below 50%. Make sure you have at least one character (preferably someone long-range) with Cure as their top gambit for any ally with HP<70%, and equip your front-line characters with your best armor. If you have a Quickening available, use it when Ghis and his Swordsmen are together. If not, pick off the Swordsmen first with some regular attacks. Once they are gone, focus your attacks on Ghis until he falls.
