Man, I forgot to bookmark this thread :x
That . . . gave me an idea that's a little different, if you don't mind me just throwing it out there to see what you guys think about it. Glyphs I envision as sort of magical tattoos on the body, usually on one limb or the back, in specific patterns depending on what they're for. On their own they give you a boost of abilities in certain ways (Like what a character's Class in traditional fantasy-y things does) and a couple of abilities. The way to maximize their usefulness is to find special crystals (i.e. materia-ish system) that you can place into the Glyphs, increasing the size of the design/changing the colors/etc and granting more abilities (i.e. spells/techniques).
The BBEG figured out a different way to use them, i.e. putting multiple Glyphs on at the same time, and (rightly) believes that with all the Glyphs on he'd become immortal (Which is probably true, considering that's basically taking ALL THE LEVELS AND CLASSES yeah?).
Ideas, they come to me.
Well, I don't usually cross-play, so I'll go with a female. No idea what though.

Ah, Tales of Eternia. Good times. They shouldn't have changed the name though. That was silly. X3
