Scylla/The Elder Staff
Stats[edit | edit source]
Battle[edit | edit source]
Scylla's main form of attacking is by using high-level spells such as Holy and Flare, many of which can deal heavy damage to the party if they are underleveled. She does not have a weakness so using strong attacks and well timed healing is essential to winning. In the original version, defeating Scylla earns the Ninja and Sage job roles.
3D Remake[edit | edit source]
In the 3D remakes, Scylla is more of a threat as her physical attacks can inflict Petrify, and she now has access to the Curaja and Thundaga spells. It is recommended to have a Sage to heal every turn while a Scholar uses any attack items available, one or two Ninjas attack, and the fourth party member either on standby for backup healing or as additional damage dealing support.
Other appearances[edit | edit source]
Scylla appears as the first boss of Syrcus Tower.
Scylla appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game with her Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy XIV versions.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Greek mythology, Scylla was a horrible sea monster with four eyes, six long necks equipped with grisly heads, each of which contained three rows of sharp teeth. Her body consisted of twelve tentacle-like legs and a cat's tail and with four to six dog-heads ringing her waist. She was one of the children of Phorcys and Ceto.In
