Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being an undead warrior of some former renown, wearing armor of polished mythril. In life, these fell soldiers belonged to an invading army that massacred many people. It was the hatred of the slain that cursed the warriors, condemning them to an eternal unlife of aimless wandering. Scourged with remorse for their crimes and hatred of those who led the invasion, they ceaselessly roam the world, hoping one day to claim revenge.

Battle Edit

Even though Crusader is a common enemy in Pharos, they can be considered the hardest common enemies there due to their persistence in chasing down and outnumbering the party. It, along with the Dragon Lich and the Necrofiend, are the only enemies immune to Instant Death.

StrategyEdit

The player can use Foe:Undead: Curaja for areas were crusaders spawn. Holy Lance is good against them. The player can also cast -ga tier spells (besides Darkga, which they absorb) on them with a staff that boosts the element of the spell.

Etymology Edit

The terms "Crusader" and "Jihad" are both associated with the historic "holy wars" fought between the Christian Europeans and Islamic Middle-Easterners for control of the holy land, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. "Crusader" (meaning "under the cross" because they were wearing a cross on their outfit) was a term used to describe the soldiers of the Crusades, the European term for the holy wars.
