Bestiary entry Edit
- Derivation: Babil
Babil considered the most sacred of its kind. This strain, as yet unrecorded in the Camp annals, is hunted in the Pharos at Ridorana.
Tower can be found on the Third Ascent by using the colorless Waystone, and will appear as soon as the player is brought to the area with the Dais of Ascendance on 88F. There is only a 20% chance of Tower appearing. If it does not spawn, the player should take the Waystone back to 79F and then use it again to warp back to 88F, and it will eventually appear.
Being a derivation of Babil and named tower, the enemy alludes to the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel is from a story from the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Scriptures/Old Testament/Torah, as well as other various ancient documents. The story tells of how early humanity was living in one city (violating the commandment to spread out and fill the Earth) and began construction on a great tower that would extend to the heavens so they could see God. However, God destroyed the tower and confused their language, forcing people to spread out among the Earth.
Its name Tower may also allude to one of two things: its spawn location, the Pharos at Ridorana, which is itself a tower, or that it is much taller than the Babil that it is derived from.
