FFT Archaeodaemon Portrait.png

A member of a race of daemons that has existed since the age of myth. It employs the destructive Dark Arts.


Archaeodaemons (アルケオデーモン, Arukeodēmon?), also known as Archaic Demons, are servants of the Lucavi in Final Fantasy Tactics. They are quite powerful, and cast many powerful spells, including Unholy Darkness. Archaeodaemons first appear during the fight with Belias, and also appear during the battle with the undead Zalbaag Beoulve along with their more powerful Ultima Demon counterparts. In addition, an Archaeodaemon named Syneugh (also called Sinogue) appears in the coal mines of Gollund.

Archaeodaemons are immune to Holy-elemental attacks, just like the Ultima Demons.

The word root archaeo-, as in "archaeology", comes from Greek archaios meaning "ancient".

A demon is "an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell".
