|Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings Enemy|
- “Shiva's cold-hearted paramour.”
Shivar (ダーリンシヴァ, Dārin Shiva?, lit. "Darling Shiva") is an Esper in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. He is the Rank II Water Ranged summon and costs 18 Affinity Points to summon. His normal attack, Blizzard, deals Water damage to one foe. His special, Absolute Zero, inflicts Stop on one foe. He is one of the unique Water-types in that he is really an Ice-type, and therefore is weak to Fire instead of Thunder.
Shivar is described as being Shiva's lover, but has not made any other appearance in series thus far. He is similar to Shiva in terms of appearance and powers, the only major difference being that he is male. This may be a reference to the Hindu God Shiva's dual gender.
Shivar has the Attack Speed of 36 to 50, an impressive growth for a ranged attacker. His time between attacks are between 2.5 seconds and 1.86 seconds (simplified calculation). His basic attack attribute is magickal, so he uses his Magick stat instead. If he is Silenced, he will not be able to attack at all. His hit style is direct shot, which means that it hits and stops at any target that is within the attack's range. His Absolute Zero spell inflicts Stop on the target regardless of space. As long as the target is within Shivar's sight, it will hit it since it uses no space.
Shivar has an impressive growth for time between actions. If buffed with Haste or Berserk, his attack is incredibly fast (his final Attack Speed pulverizes all of the Ranged Water Espers) yet may be as collective as Shiva in that situation. He also has a significantly high growth of Magick Defense. His Absolute Zero inflicts Stop, highly favorable when used against enemy Party Leaders for their seamless range.
Shivar, one stone throw better than Shivan in Stamina and Defense, has a comparably weak Defense growth to be almost parring with Shivan's. Making him under the category 'susceptible to Melee attacks'. His Absolute Zero magick, is seamless, although favorable to use since it has indefinite hit range, if the player makes several Shivan attacks a single unit, all of them will waste a single target with the Stop status, which the effect does not stacks.
