ФЭНДОМ


Bahamut ffivds

Бахамут, Святой Отец всех Эйдолонов.

Эйдолоны (англ. Eidolons), также известные как Призываемые монстры (англ. Summoned Monsters, яп. 幻獣, Genjuu?) являются призываемыми существами в Final Fantasy IV и в Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Эйдолоны отличаются от других монстров тем, что они умны и могут разговаривать на человеческом языке, а также они помогают в сражения, в которых участвуют герои. Они строят магазины, производят и продают редкие предметы, пишут книги и так далее.

История

FF4PSP Leviathan Battle

Because of their isolation, Eidolons are naturally wary of humans who are not Summoners. The bond between an Eidolon and their Summoner is unique. The Summoner must first defeat an Eidolon in battle, then they can use them as a summon. If the Summoner's Eidolon is killed, the Summoner dies as well.

The Eidolons live in the Feymarch, a plane usually inaccessible to humans, although a portal to this world exists in the Underworld and Leviathan is able to travel to and from the surface world by undisclosed means. In Feymarch time flows faster than normal, and a few weeks or months in the human world can be years in the Feymarch. According to the books in the library in this world, Leviathan and his queen, Asura, are the rulers of the world, but Bahamut is their God and the ruler of all monsters. Bahamut lives on the Red Moon.

Lostown

The Town of Feymarch, where the Eidolons live.

Young Eidolons are called Whytkins, and take the form of Rydia's Eidolon Whyt. In this form, they can grow to take on the forms seen in the other Eidolons. Whyt and his parents stay Whytkins so that new Eidolon children can be born. Though Whytkin have no abilities of their own, they have hidden potential that allows their power to be greatly increased. Not all Eidolons grow up from Whytkin, however - at least one, Odin, is born from a deceased Dark Knight instead through undisclosed means.

Eidolons in Final Fantasy IV seem to take on humanoid forms. Leviathan introduces himself as merely "some old man" until the party defeats Asura. In the Lair of the Father, Bahamut appears as a robed man wearing a head ornament. His two guards also take the form of children.

Список Эйдолонов

With the exception of Whyt from the Final Fantasy IV DS version, all of the Eidolons and their attacks from Final Fantasy IV are the same in Final Fantasy IV: The After Years.

Этимология

In the English localization of the DS version, "Eidolon" is pronounced [aɪˈdoʊɫ.ən] (aye-doh-lon). The summons in Final Fantasy IV did not have a specific name until the DS version of Final Fantasy IV was released. The game's translator, Tom Slattery, was the one to choose the term "Eidolon":

Во всех других играх серии они имеют нормальные названия, эсперы, эйдолоны, стражи и т. п., а здесь тупо использовалось слово «саммоны», либо «призываемые монстры». Эсперы уже вернулись в двенадцатой части и во всех её ответвлениях, а эйдолны до этого не засветились нигде кроме девятой, поэтому я решил их применить сначала в четвёртой и потом в тринадцатой частях.
—Том Слэттери[1]
