The party should enter the battle with Float on, to negate Echidna's Quake spell. Anyone hit by Flare should be healed by a white mage, and anyone who is killed should be brought back with Raise or Arise, or a Phoenix Down if the white mage is killed. Black mages should attack with their most powerful spells, and physical attackers should use their most powerful bands or attacks.
[view·edit·purge]In the most ancient layers of Greek mythology, Echidna was called the "Mother of All Monsters". Echidna was described by Hesiod as a female monster spawned in a cave, who mothered with her mate Typhon. Her face and torso is that of a beautiful woman, sometimes depicted as winged, but always with the body of a serpent. She is also sometimes described as having two serpent's tails. She was said to be the mother of such famous Greek monsters like Cerberus and the Chimera.
