Etymology Edit

Flanitor is a portmanteau of "flan" and "janitor." Flan is a recurring enemy type in the series.

Flan is an open pastry or sponge cake containing a sweet or savory filling. A typical flan of this sort is round, with shortcrust pastry, usually coated with sweet syrup. It is similar to a custard tart or a South African melktert.

Trivia Edit

  • Interestingly, a Flanitor never uses Rescue on itself, implying it was bred specifically to provide care for others with little concern for itself (much like a doctor whose only concern is their patients).
