First one.


Also,

quote
Valefar is considered a good familiar by his associates 'till they are caught in the trap.
Whilst Val is female in-game, it's still appropriate.

Gender aside

Harpy/Cockatrice/Wyvern are all birds/flyers.
Valefar - He is represented as a lion with the head of a man, or as a lion with the head of a donkey.
Lions and donkeys.

Standard visual representation means little as a medium. It's the persona of something that means the most.

Take Ifrit as an example; he's a Fire Djinni (rogue demon) in Hindu mythology. In every FF ever, the only thing that fits is the fire (and destructive nature; he never looks like a traditional Djinni).

Also Shiva is male. And has 4 arms.



Another example whilst I remember: Sephiroth and Tifa.

Sephiroth is far from being a benevolent group of 10 things. And Tifa isn't part of him. (Tifa is one of the 10 Sephirot. Tis the one of LOVE.)

Yea, I understand that.
But still don't see the connection between them.

So Valefor can represent the antithesis of Valefar?
Girl and guy.
Good and evil.
Bird and donkey.
Sephiroth and Sephirot.

When you first meet Valefor... has a gentle aura. Akin to being a "good familiar".

Magus Sisters? Since the plural of Magus is Magi...

http://ldolphin.org/magi.html

As for the nature theme... likely to be something illegal

I meant that the developers were likely on drugs (it's possible... that's why Mario makes no sense). Hence the TvTropes link.

~~

Also, this thread quickly changed from being about how to get the Sol Anima to mythology <_<

It's required to finish it. You can't leave without getting the treasure, and you can't even leave the first screen without the sphere.
