Bestiary EntryEdit

Note: Shares the bestiary entry of Garuda-Egi.

Genus: Avion
Class: Diver

Page 1: ObservationsEdit

Being the legendary foe of the wyrms, as told in 'The Legend of the Dragoons'. Living atop only the highest peaks, they feed primarily on serpents. Natural philosophers have confirmed the existence of two kinds: the garuda, whose glimmering gold wings distinguish it as original stock, and the garuda-egi, whose wings have lost their brilliant luster. Many are the cultures that regard these creatures as gods for their auspicious appearance.

Page 2: On the Extraction of ElementsEdit

Now, it is generally held that the sun has an affinity for fire. However, according to those natural philosophers who have studied white incense, the sun's allegiance lies not with the flame, but with holy power. This, of course, discredits the theory that the sun is but a large, fiery sphere, and has led wiser men to suggest that the sun is indeed a holy object, to which flame has clung: a base light yearning for a higher power.

BattleEdit

FFXII Garuda

Battle with Garuda.

Garuda is a flying enemy, meaning it can only be attacked by using long-ranged weapons, magicks, certain technicks or the item Knot of Rust.

To make the battle easier, the player can enter a sidequest involving the Urutan-Yensa and the Urutan Eater in the Yensan Sandsea. In the Sandscale Bank area, which is a Save Crystal area, the player can talk to the Sandsea Moogle who tells the party of the Urutan Eater. The player can then find the Urutan Eater in the Withering Shores area and defeat it. Returning to the moogle, the player can follow a Urutan-Yensa and witness a scene and in the end find Eksir Berries. Eksir Berries are useful against the Garuda as it lowers its Attack power and dispels the effects of its Enrage.

StrategyEdit

The party can unleash their full force by using Fire, Thunder, Water, and Dark magick, which does double damage. Another fast way is to try building a long Quickening chain. This will deplete its health at a decent amount.

Blind renders its physical attacks useless, although it may take a few casts to inflict the status.

EtymologyEdit

[view  · edit  · purge]Garuda is one of the many aspects of god in Hinduism, and one of three main aspects related to animal symbolism. In Puranic and epic mythology, Garuda is the king of birds and the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. Garuda is traditionally seen as male, and his appearance is that of having a golden body, white face, red wings, and an eagle's head and beak, but with a man's body. He wears a crown, is ancient and has size enough to block out the sun, and is seen as a symbol of ethical strength.

Garuda appears also as a demon in a set of 69 illustrations by Jacques-Albin-Simon Collin de Plancy. He was an illustrator, writer, and demonologist of the nineteenth century. Garuda also appears in Buddhist mythology as a race of bird-like divine creatures with intelligence and social organization. They combine the characteristics of animals and divine beings, and may be considered to be among the lowest devas. These Garuda are enemies of another race known as Nagas, being snake-like creatures.

In Indonesia, Garuda is synonymous with Phoenix. Garuda is featured in the national emblem of Indonesia and Thailand.
