Once Sphinxaur is defeated, Sphinxara will take over and begin inflicting status ailments. Eventually it will call three allies to fight in its place: Jelleye, Forbidden, and the Tri-Face. These can be easily dispatched, leaving the monster vulnerable. Once Sphinxara is defeated, the ally disappears.
The Japanese name for this enemy is "Andro" in reference to androsphinx, a sphinx with a human head.
[view·edit·purge]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.
