Belias the Gigas (魔人ベリアス Majin Beriasu lit. Belias the Devil-Man) is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Fire, he represents the Zodiac sign of Aries, the Ram (which is also a fire sign). However, his only ram-like feature are his horns and hooves. From his power of Fire, his color sign is Red. He is also referred to as the Mesha Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology. Belias is based upon the Lucavi Belias the Gigas from Final Fantasy Tactics, though it is noted that he acts as the Final Fantasy XII summon counterpart for the summon Ifrit.
Belias is found in the Tomb of Raithwall, still guarding his master's tomb. He is the first of the five Espers obtained during the main storyline, and the only one you have to summon during the main course of the game. The main gate of Giruvegan can only be opened by The Gigas, forcing you to summon Belias to open it. We can then assume that the Holy Realm he was created to guard was Giruvegan, and that the gods referred to in every Esper entry are the Occuria.
Painflare: A Fire Elemental attack. Like your standard higher level Fire spell.
Hellfire: A Fire-elemental attack, and Belias' ultimate attack. Twirling his staff, Belias summons a giant fireball. He then sets his staff ablaze, jumps high into the air and thrusts his staff into the earth, making the ground break apart. Fire and molten rock from the depths of hell spew out, burning everything on their path and damage the enemy.

At the Yapih Caverns, after taking care of Ba'Gamnan, the party attempts to hunt down the Judge of Wings to the Dais of the Auracite. Before they can approach her, she summons Belias to attack the party. After defeating Belias, aswell as a whole horde of Fire monsters, the party gets closer to the Judge. However, Belias was only a distraction for the party; the Judge of Wings has now had enough time to summon Bahamut, the ultimate summon. After the following scenes, the party can access Belias on the Ring of Pacts.
