Fiend Tale Edit
- I won't let him get away this time... no I won't. Wait - who are you? Where am I...? I'm... I'm dead. Me, my friends... all of us done in. But I won't let that stop me from getting my revenge!
- He... he betrayed us. I was a warrior monk, and my unit was protecting a supply caravan. We were charged with ensuring that supplies and war funds reached the front line. And the person who betrayed us was none other than... our captain.
- Our captain had been lining his pockets by diverting supplies from the temple to a local merchant. When we realized what he was doing, we confronted him in a valley in the Calm Lands. But he had been planning to eliminate us all along. The merchant's private army had us completely surrounded.
- We were assaulted by the merchant's men, and my comrades fell, one after another. But I could swear that I had the captain cornered, but my memory fades after that... When I came to, I had become a fiend. The captain, on the other hand... He was promoted, and he continues to dirty his hands in secret! Only I can bring peace to my fallen comrades now. I must take revenge upon the captain!
One notable Cephalotus was created from the spirit of a warrior monk whose platoon was betrayed by their captain to a local merchant and died failing to restock his ammo in time. Bent on avenging his allies, the Cephalotus finds his captain and achieves his revenge.
It is weak against the Fire element. A moderately powerful foe, it can knock MP down quickly when in Oversoul, and in both Oversoul and normal state, it can inflict heavy damage with its Seed Cannon. It usually comes in pairs or with other enemies, though it is wise to take the Cephalotus out first.
Cephalotus is a monotypic genus which contains the species, Cephalotus follicularis, a small carnivorous pitcher plant. The pit-fall traps of the modified leaves have inspired the common names for this plant, which include Albany Pitcher Plant, Western Australian Pitcher Plant, fly-catcher plant, or moccasin plant.
