I've played FE10 all the way up to the Goddess, and my father has beaten the game, but we've never found a character that uses Black Magic. Not one. and I've only seen two enemies that use it, both bosses. Am I doing something wrong, or did someone mess with the game. Seriously, in the final few levels the shops sell black magic tomes and theres no one able to use them.

SPOILERS (if anyone cares)
































Pelleas uses Dark magic, but you can only recruit him on your second playthough, and only if you let him live after chapter 3-12. A third option will appear saying "refuse the duty" or something when you have to choose between having Micaiah kill him and passing the duty on to Tauroneo. Pelleas becomes playable sometime in Part 4.

There are two Druids near the boss in the Kauku Caves or whatever in Part III, although it's an irrelevant detail.

Septimus. Don't you dare forget his name. >:(

There's also Veyona, but it's really hard to recruit him. You have to follow all these really strict criterions.

Are you saying you can recruit Veyona?

Yeah. They missed it when they started hacking the game because Veyona doesn't have extraordinary growths or anything like that. They only found out just recently.

I was referring to the chapter's name, not the boss's. Of course I remember the boss's name.

So, how do you recruit him? I have always wanted a dark magic user, and they did not put them in Path of Radiance . . . how could they do such a horrible thing?!

Okay, you have to do all these steps. (Also, make sure you're playing Hard Mode, that's the only mode he joins in. I assume he's kinda the replacement of Oliver in that respect, because in the Japanese version, Oliver is Hard Mode only.)

1) First, you have to beat Chapter 3-3 without killing Veyona. You also have to successfully visit all the huts things in the chapter. I also think you have to steal his Shade Scroll, but I'm not sure about that. I did, just to be safe.

2) Next, you have to beat Lethe in Chapter 3-6. I had to power level Jill in order to do this.

3) Then, in Chapter 3-7, you have to fight and beat every single actual character on the enemy side sans the Black Knight. This wasn't too hard with Haar, but trying to get Veyona and Sephiran in one playthrough is hectic. o_o

4) If you do this, one of the Druids next to Septimus in Chapter 3-8 (Incandescent Glow, Othin) will be replaced with Veyona. Apparently he now sees that Zelgius is just a puppet for the senators and, coupled with the fact that he has just been assigned a suicide mission, decides to ditch the Begnion army. Talk to him with Ike to recruit him.

I will also try if I have the time.

Where will I get 80 hours, though? . . .

No, he just promotes into Arch Sage.

Ah...I'm already on chapter 3-13 on my hard mode run. D= I'll probably forget about this by the time I reach that point in the game again...
