Bestiary entryEdit

What strange Change does Magicite work on creatures, a perfect Example being this Gargoyle of the Lhusu Mines. Its Form inspired the commonly held Misconception in Bhujerba that the Creatures in its Magicite mines are Visitors from an Otherworld. The Bill for this Monstrosity has been extant for some Time, yet none have appeared to answer it, and so it remains, though the Petitioner's Identity be long forgotten.

FFXII Diabolos

Battle with Diabolos.

Diabolos tends to cast status-inflicting magicks, most notably Scourge. There is also a slight chance of it casting Haste on itself. At one point of the battle, Diabolos will use Force Barrier, which negates all attacks. During this period, Diabolos will use Pyromania, which inflicts high Fire-elemental damage upon all characters in range. It will also use Curse, which inflicts Confuse, Disease, Poison, and Sap on all targets in range. When around 60% of its HP is taken, Diabolos will build up an auto-counter barrier, which inflicts damage upon the character for every attack delivered. Diabolos is not immune to Slow and it is weak to Water-based attacks.


It is a good idea to buff the party before the fight. It is especially recommended to use Bravery. To combat Pyromania, one can equip fire-absorbing equipment while Diabolos readies the spell. One character should serve as the healer to heal the plethora of negative status effects Diabolos will inflict.

Diabolos susceptibility to Slow is exploitable via Nihopalaoa. Overall, the key of defeating Diabolos is to defeat it quickly.




Diabolos is the Greek word for "devil". It has entered many languages to mean devil, such as Diabolus (Latin), Diavolo (Italian), Diablo (Spanish), Diable (French), and Diabo (Portuguese). Diabolos actually means "accuser" or "slanderer" and could also be connected to the Greek word diabolous, which means "divider" (which fits given his affinity with gravity element), but eventually the general word Diabolos became the specific name of the entity. In the original Greek rendering, it was used to refer to the Christian Devil (The New Testament was written in Greek). Devil is the English translation of Diabolos and in Christian belief, this being is the embodiment of evil.

The concept of the Devil is believed to originate in Zoroastrianism with Angra Mainyu (also known as Ahriman) as well as from the Judaic Satan in the Book of Job in the Old Testament. However, their Satan was merely the "devil's advocate", an angel who acted as a skeptic and whom God allowed to afflict Job with suffering. Satan is Hebrew for "prosecutor/accuser" or "adversary".

The concept of the summon Diabolos may be connected to the Jinn in Islamic mythology, similar to Ifrit. The djinn were the origins of genie myths and were spirits or ghosts made of fire or smoke. They were said to grant wishes.
