The Diakon Entite is an enemy in Final Fantasy XII. It is the Holy-elemental entite, and is found in the Giruvegan when there is abundant Mist. Two of them are also fought alongside a Luxollid in Stage 79 of Trial Mode.
Bestiary entry Edit
Page 1: Observations Edit
In ages past, the gods took to the air and from here shone with a brilliant light, so that Man might not walk forever in shadow. The light drove out cold, thinned fear's grim pall, and purified that which was corrupt and evil. Yet Man was not pleased. He grasped for the light, seeking to make it his own. He wanted to be a god. So the gods quit their heavenly seat, and created the diakon entites, whereby to judge Man with a fierce and holy righteousness. Thus did Man seize light, and in so doing, lose the favor of the gods.
Page 2: The Entite Pact Edit
The power of holiness is salvation. The power of holiness is its faith. Worship it, and it will be an absolute. Worship it, and it will know no doubt. Yet strike it down with the power of darkness, and its eyes will open, and it shall know fear. Holiness, fearful, shall surely offer the shining electrum to you.
Diakon Entite's attacks consist of Silencega and Sleepga. It uses Fearga rather than Fear, reducing the entire party's MP. Diakon Entite uses high-level elemental spells—Firaga, Blizzaga, Thundaga, Waterga (Aquaga in Zodiac versions), Aeroga and Darkga, as well as Holy—and can use Dispelga to remove buffs from the party. Reflect will not work against its spells. Like the other entites, it is docile, but attacks when provoked or when magick is used nearby.
A Diakon is also another spelling for Deacon. Deacon (diakonos) means minister or servant, and is used in context with the Catholic Church. This might imply that the Diakon Entite are "ministers" or "servants" of the Occuria.
The Japanese name, "Dekuarubu," is the Romanization of old Norse "Dökkálfr," the Dark Elf. The contradiction of elemental property directly mirrors with "Ryosuarubu", Leamonde Entite in English version.
