Mindy, Cindy, and Sandy, from left to right, by Yoshitaka Amano for Final Fantasy IV.

I am Sandy! I'm Cindy! And Mindy! We're the Magus Sisters! Sorry, but your quest will be over here. Take our Delta Attack and farewell!!

The Magus Sisters

The Magus Sisters (メーガス三姉妹, Mēgasu San Shimai?, lit. The Three Magus Sisters) are recurring characters in the Final Fantasy series who appear as a triad. Sandy (ドグ, Dogu?, lit. Dogu) is the tallest and middle sister, Cindy (マグ, Magu?, lit. Magu) is the portly and oldest sister, and Mindy (ラグ, Ragu?, lit. Lagu) is the smallest and youngest sister. They are associated with the Delta Attack ability.

The Latin-text Japanese names for the sisters (given above following "lit.") are the names given for their Final Fantasy X incarnations in various Final Fantasy Art Museum sets.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Magus Sisters stop the party's climb (DS).

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

The Magus Sisters appear as a boss at the top of the Tower of Zot where they are minions to Barbariccia of the Air, one of Golbez's Archfiends. They attack using the Delta Attack, in which Sandy casts Reflect on Cindy and Mindy who use a level two elemental spell or Bio on Cindy, reflecting it on to Cecil's party. Cindy can revive her allies, and thus it is a good idea to concentrate the party's attack on her first.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[edit | edit source]

Cindy, Mindy, and Sandy are bosses fought in the Subterrane. They fight in the exact same way as in the previous game, and can be dealt with in the same manner.

Final Fantasy X[edit | edit source]

FFX-MagusSisters.jpg

The Magus Sisters appear as an optional aeon found in Remiem Temple after opening its back door with the Flower Sceptre and the Blossom Crown (when Anima and Yojimbo are recruited). The Magus Sisters act as three separate players, and their moves cannot be controlled, only suggested with shouting commands such as "Fight!", "Help Each Other!" and "Go, Go, Go!". However, their moves and stats are very strong, making them worth using.

When the sisters perform their Overdrive, they surround the enemy party in eight crystals, four of blue hue, and four of red-orange hue. This is a reference back to Final Fantasy IV, where there were four blue crystals of the surface world, and four red-orange crystals of the Underground.

Final Fantasy X-2[edit | edit source]

The Magus Sisters return as the second aeon battle waiting to impede Yuna, Rikku and Paine's venture into the Farplane.

Final Fantasy XI[edit | edit source]

The Shikaree Sisters,

The Shikaree Sisters are largely a reference to, if not a direct appearance of, the Magus Sisters, as confirmed by Square Enix in Dissidia. Simply referred to as Shikaree X, Shikaree Y, and Shikaree Z, they wield the sisters' respective weapons (scythe, daggers, polearm) and have their own version of a delta attack in the form of skill chaining.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance[edit | edit source]

The Magus Sisters appear as Liliths and are fought in "Mission #077: Free Baguba!" where they are known as Naga and each know only one of the three abilities the Lilith can use (Cindy uses Poison Frog, Sandy uses Twister, and Mindy uses Kiss). When they are all defeated, Mindy will say she should have used her special attack, a reference to the Magus Sisters' Delta Attack.

Final Fantasy Dimensions II[edit | edit source]

The Magus Sisters appear as a summon. In addition to appearing as a group summon, each Magus Sister appears as a separate Signet for the player to obtain. Each of their special attacks are based of their abilities from their Final Fantasy X appearance.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Magus is the Latin word for "wizard". Its plural is Magi.

Magus Sisters may be a reference to the Moirai, often known in English as the Fates. The Moirai were the three incarnations of destiny—Clotho (spinner), Lachesis (allotter) and Atropos (literally 'unturnable' but metaphorically 'inflexible' or 'inevitable'—i.e. death)—who controlled the thread of life of every mortal and acted independently; even gods needed to submit to them. This could be reflected in Final Fantasy X by the player not being able to directly command the sisters like the other aeons.

The Japanese names of the Sisters may be derived from Dogra Magra (ドグラ・マグラ, Dogura Magura?), a 1935 novel by Yumeno Kyūsaku. The novel is regarded as an example of Japanese avant-garde gothic literature.

In Final Fantasy X the special attacks "Razzia" and "Camisade" have origins in military tactics: Razzia comes from Arabic, Ghazw, meaning "raid" and Camisado is a surprise raid during times when the enemy is supposed to be asleep. Passado is a fencing skill—a forward lunge with an epee or rapier.
