Emperor among the scions, able to reduce to nothing aught he strikes with a single vengeful blow of his fist, created in opposition to Deudalephon the Benevolent, scion of light. Though he was made by the gods to quell the fiends that raged in the Otherworld, his immense strength and fearsome visage drew the fiends to his side, and turned him against his creators. Adrammelech rose to prominence in the Otherworld, whence he led a fiendish horde against the gods, but in the end, he was defeated.
Adrammelech, the Wroth (憤怒の霊帝アドラメレク, Funnu no Reitei Adoramereku?, lit. Adrammelech, the Furious Spirit Emperor) is a recurring creature in Ivalice. A large winged monster with horns, he has been both an Esper and one of the Lucavi, and is associated with the zodiac sign Capricorn. Adrammelech is also referred to as the Makara Ascendant, the Sanskrit name of its zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.
Adrammelech is associated with the element of Lightning, and is an optional Esper. He has a dragon-like form with a goat-like head and the cloven hooves on his feet. Due to his power over Thunder, his color sign is Yellow.
He is fought in the middle of the Zertinan Caverns and summons several undead to aid him during the fight. Once defeated, he can be summoned by the player. Adrammelech's standard special attack is Flash Arc, a powerful Lightning-elemental attack, and his ultimate attack is Judgment Bolt, which does Lightning-elemental damage to enemies in range.
Adrammelech, dormant in the Capricorn auracite, takes over Dycedarg Beoulve's body after he is wounded during a battle against his younger brothers Ramza and Zalbaag. Adrammelech kills Zalbaag and several guards from the Order of the Northern Sky, but Ramza and his group defeat him.
When summoned, Adrammelech attacks all enemies for massive damage, and is less damaging against bangaa.
Adrammelech can be summoned as a Scion by someone equipped with the Raging Brooch when the Smash Gauge is orange. His Wrath is called Judgement Bolt.
Adramelech was a god called Baal Adramelech (Baal means "Lord" and melech means "King" in Hebrew) in Assyrian mythology. It is said that children were sacrificed to him, but Greek accounts saying that child sacrifice via burning them or placing them within a heated bronze statue of the god are not historically verifiable, as no archaeological proof of such a large, bronze statue exists.
Adramelech is considered a demon in Judeo-Christian tradition, being generally depicted with a human torso and head, and the rest of the body of a mule, a peacock, or some combination there of. He was described as "The enemy of God, greater in ambition, guile and mischief than Satan. A fiend more cursed — a deeper hypocrite".
Adrammelech is also referred to as the Makara Ascendant, the Sanskrit name of its zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.
