Depiction of the Lucavi, associated zodiac signs, and names.

The Ivalician Language (イヴァリース言語, Ivarīsu Gengo?) featured in Final Fantasy Tactics appears in a few places. They can be seen on the big circular zodiac sigil. The one in the opening movie of the PlayStation version and also in the background when the player access the save screen. It is also found on the floor in the "job class demonstration" opening movie demo.

English players could never think to discover this by themselves since several words appeared in the Sound Novels, a feature that is exclusive to Japanese players because the Sound Novels were dummied for the English release. These words are written in both katakana and Ivalician while the English players only have the blurry world map and the zodiac sigil to go on with in deciphering the Ivalician alphabet.
