The Pandora is an insect/mimic-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in the Lhusu Mines, although one also appears in the Necrohol of Nabudis. Like many mimics they hide as treasure containers, but are easily recognizable from the real thing due to their colorful markings.

Bestiary Entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Some boxes are made to be opened, others to remain closed. A prime example of the latter is none other than the pandora, a fiendish creature that assumes the look of a chest or coffer, granting death to any who open it. But o, the folly! For still it is whispered that the taboo upon the death-box's opening is nothing more than a rumor spread by those avaricious few who would claim the treasures inside for themselves! How many, hearing this, have opened what they believed to be a boon only to find a bane.

Page 2: A Curious Treasure Edit

Though it appears to be naught but a puppeteer's fantasy, the pandora is a crafty creature, with complex, highly developed innards that somehow harness the power of lightning. Where blood flows in our veins, lightning flows in theirs. Its heart, charged with the task of sending that lightning to the rest of its body, works much like the engine of an airship. Mechanists call this unusual organ the wrath of the gods.

Battle Edit

In the Necrohol, the lone Pandora is not a threat and is easily dispatched. The Pandoras found in the Lhusu Mines, however, are a different story. Their HP is not exceptionally high, but they can do several thousand damage with normal attacks. Protect and Bubble are crucial for surviving their blows. The Pandoras allow access to Cancer Gem and Wrath of the Gods loots, which are needed to purchase the Orochi and Grand Bolts, respectively, at the Bazaar.

The Pandora in the Mines are located in the Site 6 North. To get to this area, the player should go to the left side of the north section of Site 6 South and pan around until finding a hidden passageway.

If the player has the Knight's Monograph, they should just kill the Pandoras as they will drop both Cancer Gem and Wrath of the Gods. However, if the player does not have the Monograph, they will be forced to poach the Pandoras to acquire the Wrath of the Gods. Either way, if the player cannot acquire these items they can easily zone two areas away and come back to make the Pandoras respawn, allowing them to raise their Chain level and increase the odds of a drop.

Etymology Edit

[view  · edit  · purge]In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman created by the gods. According to the myth, Pandora opened a jar, in modern accounts sometimes mistranslated as "Pandora's box", releasing the evils of humanity leaving only Hope inside once she had closed it again. The myth is a kind of theodicy, addressing the question of why there is evil in the world.
