Battle[edit | edit source]

The Garuda Interceptor is faced in two consecutive battles. During the first fight it has a low chain resistance, and it is easy to Stagger. In the second battle the creature raises several barriers around itself, making it harder to damage. The battle scores from both fights are combined.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

In the first battle Sazh and Lightning can concentrate on attacking while Vanille heals. In the second battle the party should still attempt to focus on staggering through the use of two Ravagers.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Garuda is a large, birdlike creature that appears in both Hinduism and Buddhism. It serves as Lord Vishnu's mount and is the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila. Contemporary representations of Garuda are the brahminy kite and phoenix.

An interceptor is a person or thing that stops or catches (someone or something) going from one place to another.
