Luxollid is a Rare Game enemy found in the Subterra of Pharos in Final Fantasy XII. The player can steal a good weapon from it, though which weapon it is depends on version.

The player must kill the rare enemy Vagrant Soul in Abyssal-North, and then head to Umbra-South without saving or leaving the Subterra. Luxollid will spawn in the easternmost room of the southwestern corridor leading away from the Umbra-Interior.

It is also fought in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode at Stage 79 along with two Diakon Entites where a Dark Matter can rarely be stolen from it.

Trial Mode[edit | edit source]

Trial Mode.

Luxollid is fought alongside four diakon entites in Stage 79. One strategy is to use a Remedy on it while wearing a Nihopalaoa and move away when it will be immobilized. The player can also use the Immobilize spell (will always work with Indigo Pendant equipped). The party can then take out the smaller minions first. Shell Shield and equipment resistant to elements can be used to mitigate damage.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Luxollid's name is derived from the Latin word lux, meaning "light" and, perhaps, the Latin word olim, meaning "at another time". Considering the Japanese name is "Raito-Obu-Raito", it may simply be a corrupt phonetic translation of "Light of Light". In the Italian translation, it is called Lux Lucis, which has the same meaning.

While lux is easily defined as Latin, the "ollid" phrase may be meant to be ole + id (suffix). There are several words in Greek and Latin in which the 'ola' sound (olla/ola/ole/eola) is attributed to or used in conjunction with disc/round/spherical objects. Aureola (aureate + ole) is both the term for the circular breast adornment and a radiance of light, usually depicted as circular, emanating from an object (halo, corona). Olla (in its modern Spanish spelling) is an archaic word (predating Roman Empire) for a round or spherical pot. "Id" is likely meant as the suffix used in both Greek and Latin, taken from the word meaning "origin", and ubiquitous with a "kind" or "classification" of a thing. The intended translation for "ollid" may be "of the radiance", and lux+ollid may be intended to be "Light of the Radiance".
