Sol, accompanied by Diana and Glaive, go to the Checkpoint to welcome Aigis. When they reach Lux he is summoned to the castle.

Aigis begins with Red Magic level 1, giving him access to basic White and Black Magic spells. He comes with Cure, Libra, Poisona, Fire, Blizzard, and Thunder. Aigis also starts with Cover to help protect weakened allies.
Aigis's stats can benefit the Paladin job due to his high physical stat growth, his high MP growth, combined with his decent magical stats and high physical prowess, can also benefit the Red Mage job, however, since the stat differences between characters are minimal, and abilities and equipment are of greater importance, he can competently do any job. Jobs also gain stat boosts when leveling up, which helps even out stats.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
"Aigis" is a play on "Aegis", playing on his role as a protector. Aegis is the shield wielded by Athena in Greek mythology. It is often interpreted as a shield made of animal hide, often featuring the head of Medusa or another Gorgon. In some depictions the Aegis actually belongs to Zeus, in which it may be his breastplate rather than a shield, and Zeus would lend it to various gods in deeds they need his aid in. However in popular culture the Aegis is more commonly associated with Athena.The
