Worshiped by a Meracydian race of centaur-like beings, this eikon manifested upon the physical plane as an embodiment of eternal victory. And yet, despite his godlike might, Zurvan was captured. He has languished in his Allagan-made prison now for five thousand years, his primal desire for justice swelling in magnitude with each passing millennium...
Creation and developmentEdit
Zurvan, like Sephirot and Sophia, are based on their Final Fantasy VI counterparts. Zurvan is inspired by the Demon. His name is taken from the working name he was initially given before simply being called Demon in Final Fantasy VI. Note that while there is a recent monster called Zurvan in the remakes of Final Fantasy VI, this enemy is based on the Warring Triad original member.
Like Sephirot and Sophia, a rearranged version of "Battle to the Death" called "Battle to the Death - Heavensward" from Final Fantasy VI plays in the first phase of the battle against Zurvan. Two new tracks called "Penultimania" and "Infinity" play during Zurvan's second phase, unique to him. Unlike "Fiend" and "Equilibrium", there are two tracks in the same phase, with "Infinity" playing after Zurvan uses his signature attack, Ahura Mazda.
Zurvanism, Zurvan is the god of infinite time (and space) and is Aka Manah ("one", "alone") deity of matter.In
