Profile[edit | edit source]

Story[edit | edit source]

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Hashmal is one of the five storyline Espers and is the fourth obtained. He is found at the Pharos, guarding one of the platforms leading up to the Sun-Cryst. The Occuria sealed him here to protect the Sun-Cryst from intruders. Princess Ashe and her entourage brave the tower to reach the Sun-Cryst and defeat Hashmal along their way t the top, gaining him as an ally.

Spoilers end here.

Obtained[edit | edit source]

After being fought as a boss at Pharos, Hashmal's license can be purchased for 50 LP.

Unlocked abilities in Zodiac versions[edit | edit source]

Esper licenses sometimes unlock licenses that could not otherwise be reached. Hashmal's license will appear on all boards, but once chosen by a character, will disappear from all other boards. In The Zodiac Age version, the player can choose two license boards for each playable character, and activated licenses are activated on both boards if present.

Hashmal allows access to the following licenses on these boards:

Battle[edit | edit source]

Hashmal requires two Mist Charges to summon.

Unlike other Espers, Hashmal's basic attack uses the damage formula for axes and hammers, thus dealing randomized damage.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Roxxor

An Earth-elemental attack, and the only offensive Earth attack the player gets apart from certain weapons. In Japan, this attack's name is "Rock You".

Gaia's Wrath

An Earth-elemental attack, and Hashmal's ultimate attack. Hashmal descends beneath the earth, landing on a rock amid magma. He draws power into himself and jumps, smashing back through the surface. His leap breaks the earth into enormous chunks, smashing the enemies in range and unleashing torrents of lava.

Etymology and symbolism[edit | edit source]

In modern Hebrew hashmal means "electricity". Hashmalim is the Jewish second order of angels; translated as golden/amber ones. (Amber was known for its static charges in antiquity and the basis of understanding electricity.) The leader of this order is named "Hashmal".

Hashmal's name and role are based on the Angel hierarchy of the Dominions, also known as the Hashmallim in the Jewish scrolls, who are tasked in regulating the duties of lower angels.

He is also referred to as the Simha Ascendant, the Sanskrit name of its zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.

Hashmal's attack, Roxxor, is called "Rock You" in the Japanese version, as well as some other translations, such as the Italian translation. This is a nod towards the band Queen; one of game director Yasumi Matsuno's trademarks is to pay homage to the rock band Queen in his works.[1] Rock You has been changed to Roxxor in the English localization, a likely play on internet slang.
