Final Fantasy IV

Main article: Eidolon (Final Fantasy IV)

Originally known as simply Summons, Eidolons are a race of intelligent monsters that live in their seperate world known as the Feymarch. Rydia is the only party member who can summon Eidolons.

Final Fantasy IX

Main article: Eidolon (Final Fantasy IX)

Eidolons are massively powerful creatures in Final Fantasy IX, with enough power to destroy whole cities. For that reason, they are targeted by people greedy for power. The people of Madain Sari are the only ones who can Summon Eidolons, unless their power is extracted. They play major roles in the game's plot. Dagger and Eiko are the only party members who can use Eidolons.

Final Fantasy XIII

See also: Eidolon (Final Fantasy XIII).

Eidolons in Final Fantasy XIII are magical beings that can be summoned by the playable characters who are given the powers of the l'Cie. Each Eidolon is unique to their summoner, because they reflect the summoner's personality. They have the power to transform into mechanical devices via a system called Gestalt Mode. There are six playable Eidolons in the game, and several non-playable ones.

Etymology

Eidolon is the Greek word for "image" or "specter", from which the Latin word Idolum comes. And Idol is "a representation or symbol of an object of worship."

The Eidolon.

The Eidolon was a redesigned Strike-class cruiser.

Contents

Characteristics

It boasted upgraded TIE launch racks that were able to launch several TIE/ln starfighters in a very short time.

History

Secretly manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards in the Seswenna Sector, the Eidolon disappeared on its maiden flight. Unbeknownst to the galaxy at large, the ship was nothing more than a ruse by Sate Pestage to hide his accumulated wealth on Tatooine. Although the cruiser never went into full production, the hull and launch rack of the prototype was made and retrofitted into Eidolon Base.

Appearances

The Eidolon participates in the First Battle of Ciutric IV.
  • X-wing Rogue Squadron: Battleground: Tatooine (First appearance)
  • X-wing Rogue Squadron: Mandatory Retirement (Mentioned only)
  • X-wing Rogue Squadron: Masquerade (Mentioned only)
