XIII

Stiria is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII fought in Lake Bresha. She and Nix are the Shiva Sisters, and Snow's Eidolon.

Battle Edit

Since Snow is the only character to fight his Eidolon alone, Stiria cannot be targeted during the fight, but instead heals Snow as he has no other support. This is somewhat contradictory to her purpose in the battle, as she is also the one to cast Doom on him before he fights Nix, as a test to prove his strength to them.

Strategy Edit

Using Libra or a Librascope reveals that the Shiva Sisters "yield to those who defend against attacks", so the simplest (and easiest) method of victory is to immediately Paradigm Shift to Sentinel, and repeatedly use Steelguard to fill the Gestalt Gauge. For maximum effect, the player should time the use of Steelguard to begin at the same time as Nix's series of attacks.

AI script Edit

When Battle Begins - Doom
Turn 1 - Target = Snow - Curaga

Etymology Edit

Shiva (also spelled Śiva) is a Hindu god. The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. Shiva is a male god, but can merge with his consort Parvati to become Ardhanari, an androgynous Hindu god of duality. Shiva is the god of destruction along with Vishnu, who is the god of preservation, and Brahma, the god of creation. Together they are the three principle deities of the Trimurti (Hindu Triad). It is believed he periodically destroys the world, then recreates it.

Shiva has different human forms, males and females. When he was in his avatar form, he spent most of his times in the Himalayan snow mountain. Shiva in the Final Fantasy series is likely inspired by one of his female avatars.


Stiria is Latin for "icicle".[1]
