Bestiary entryEdit

Page 1: ObservationsEdit

Scion of darkness and guardian of the Holy Realm, made by the gods in opposition to Loghrif the Transcendent, scion of light. Called the Gigas for his appearance: man and monster fused as one. Considered a mistake upon his making, and receiving not his intended role, the Gigas challenged the gods and lost. Scorned by his masters, he found another: the Dynast-King, whose tomb he swore to protect for eternity.

Belias is found guarding the Dawn Shard at the heart of the Tomb of Raithwall. In comparison to previous enemies and bosses, Belias is a heavy hitter, but is comparatively slow. His unique attack, Firaja, deals heavy Fire damage to everyone in the party, and also has the potential to inflict the Oil status. Although Belias has a high Magick Resist, his elemental weakness to Water leaves him open to Water spells.


The Rain of Tears unlockable item (Aqua Shot and Vega) in the Bazaar is useful for this battle. A good method is to have all characters equip magick-enhancing equipment and set them to cast Water, or use Water Motes. Shell is useful, as is a healthy supply of Handkerchiefs.



In Christianity, Belias means "Father of Lies". Belial (also Belias; from Hebrew בְּלִיַּ֫עַל Bəliyyáʻal; also named Matanbuchus, Mechembuchus, or Meterbuchus in older scripts) is a demon in the Bible, Christian apocrypha and Jewish apocrypha, and also a term used to characterize the wicked or worthless. Some scholars translate it from Hebrew as "worthless" (Beli yo'il), while others translate it as "yokeless" (Beli ol), "may have no rising" (Belial), or "never to rise" (Beli ya'al).

Belias's link to Aries and the Ram may be based on "belias" being similar to the French word for Aries, Bélier.
