Battle Edit

It can put party members to sleep, and it has a chance of countering with Magnitude 8, but it does not have enough MP to do so. Like most enemies in the Cave to the Sealed Gate, it absorbs Fire, but unlike most of the monsters in the area, it is not undead. Also, unlike the other enemies in the area, it is weak against Ice, and a Blizzara spell can easily dispatch them if they attack in groups.

Etymology Edit

Antares is another name of the star Alpha Scorpii located in the constellation Scorpio, named from Greek meaning "against Ares" due to its red coloration similar to the planet Mars. In the religion of Stregheria and in some translations of the Book of Enoch, Antares is a fallen angel.
