Tears Point Statue FFVIII Art

Concept art of a statue at Tears' Point.

Long ago, Tears' Point was determined to be the most likely place for a Lunar Cry to happen. To prevent the Crystal Pillar from summoning the Lunar Cry, the location was set up with a ground energy field that should have worked to deflect the energy field created by the Crystal Pillar, generated from the security boxes placed around the area's periphery. Statues were erected, their purpose besides being ornamental is unknown.

Seifer, under the control of Ultimecia, transports the Lunatic Pandora on the Tears' Point to perform a Lunar Cry. The energy field of the Crystal Pillar, combined with the Lunatic Pandora, is too powerful for the Tears' Point to contain, and most of the generators crack under pressure, and a Lunar Cry is unleashed on Esthar.

Spoilers end here.
