"It really isn't my kind of place. You see, there's an anti-magic barrier around the place. And I want to send you because you're too stupid to use magic."
Kuja (クジャ, Kuja) is the primary antagonist of Final Fantasy IX.
He is The Angel of Death, sent by his creator Garland, to Gaia to encourage war and destruction so that people would die quicker and the souls of Gaia could be replaced faster.
Thus, it is Kuja's nature to cause death.
