Zurvan, the Demon is a primal from Final Fantasy XIV, introduced in patch 3.5, "The Far Edge of Fate".

StoryEdit

Worshiped by a Meracydian race of centaur-like beings, this eikon manifested upon the physical plane as an embodiment of eternal victory. And yet, despite his godlike might, Zurvan was captured. He has languished in his Allagan-made prison now for five thousand years, his primal desire for justice swelling in magnitude with each passing millennium...
—Official description

After the defeat of Sophia it was revealed that her thralls had freed Zurvan's thralls and immediately began attempting to rouse their master at full power. The Scions and the VIth Legion formed an alliance to stop the thralls' ambitions by destroying four towers that were feeding him aether. With three towers destroyed, Unukalhai struggles to destroy his and Regula assists him only to be blindsided by a swing of an awaken Zurvan. Although the blow was blocked, his sword breaks and Regula suffers a fatal wound, with his final breath he urges the Warrior of Light to defeat Zurvan. After a tactical retreat the Warrior of Light and a party of echo blessed adventurer's face Zurvan in a fierce battle that ends with the defeat of the Primal.

GameplayEdit

Zurvan appears as a boss twice in Containment Bay Z1T9 as a boss and as a superboss in the extreme version both require a level 60 job and a eight player party.

Defeating Zurvan in the extreme version grants players with the achievement "Zurvan Safari".

Creation and developmentEdit

Zurvan, like Sephirot and Sophia, are based on their Final Fantasy VI counterparts. Zurvan is inspired by the Demon. His name is taken from the working name he was initially given before simply being called Demon in Final Fantasy VI. Note that while there is a recent monster called Zurvan in the remakes of Final Fantasy VI, this enemy is based on the Warring Triad original member.

Musical ThemesEdit

Like Sephirot and Sophia, a rearranged version of "Battle to the Death" called "Battle to the Death - Heavensward" from Final Fantasy VI plays in the first phase of the battle against Zurvan. Two new tracks called "Penultimania" and "Infinity" play during Zurvan's second phase, unique to him. Unlike "Fiend" and "Equilibrium", there are two tracks in the same phase, with "Infinity" playing after Zurvan uses his signature attack, Ahura Mazda.
