The Heart of Babel!? No kidding; the Heart of Babel? ...I don't what that is, actually, but it sure sounds powerful!

Lid

Babel is a mysterious and unseen character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and a member of Hess' Eight Sages. He, or rather what remained of him (his physical heart), was sealed in a crystal, while its power was sealed by the Wind Crystal.

Babel's appearance is unknown although its remaining heart is massive enough to serve as the main engine for the airship Invincible.

Story

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

Babel is a creature from the world of Paladia. Babel is an Aldore experiment to create a source of energy. Eclipsa transplanted Heliarc's heart to the Babel machine, and thus both of these Hess sages, Sol and Babel, originate from the same body.

When the original Veritas of the Dark enacted a plan to seal the Sages in Crystal to force negotiations between the two factions, Babel was faced by an unknown member of the Sworn Eight of Paladia and sealed into the Wind Crystal. Little of Babel remained except for his still beating heart that was used to power the airship Invincible.

When Veritas of the Heavens destroys the Wind Crystal, he unseals the Heart of Babil to provide power to the Invincible as they needed a powerful airship for their quest for revenge. Dr. Lazarov steals the airship for his own purposes and attempts to use it as a weapon of genocide for his experiments. A fellow sage, Bahamut, was awakened after the Fire Crystal was destroyed. Sensing Babel's heart beating in the airship, the Dragon King challenges the vehicle and blasts the airship with his Megaflare. Lazarov is forced to hide for repairs and Bahamut departs.

Spoilers end here.

Etymology

The Tower of Babel is from a story from the Book of Genesis in the Hebrew Scriptures/Old Testament/Torah, as well as other various ancient documents. The story tells of how early humanity was living in one city (violating the commandment to spread out and fill the Earth) and began construction on a great tower that would extend to the heavens so they could see God. However, God destroyed the tower and confused their language, forcing people to spread out among the Earth.
