Eastern Sphinx is a Notorious Monster from Final Fantasy XI: Rise of the Zilart. It is spawned as part of Bastok Mission 6-1: Return of the Talekeeper, alongside Western Sphinx. While the two spawn simultaneously, they are not linked to each other, and it is possible to pull one without the other.

EtymologyEdit

A sphinx is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and a human head. In Greek tradition it is a female with the haunches of a lion, sometimes with the wings of a great bird, and the face of a human, and is mythicised as treacherous and merciless; those who cannot answer her riddle are killed and eaten. Unlike the Greek sphinx, the Egyptian sphinx is typically shown as a man and viewed as benevolent. Both were thought of as a guardian often flanking entrances to temples. XI
