The Epopts, also known as the Eight Clerics, are non-player characters in the game Final Fantasy IV. They are sisters who govern the kingdom of Troia and are guardians of the Crystal of Earth. Cecil first meets them when Golbez and Kain Highwind sends him on a mission to retrieve the Crystal in exchange for the safe return of Rosa Joanna Farrell. The Clerics, however, do not have the Crystal, and they mentioned that it was stolen by the Dark Elf. Cecil goes to the Lodestone Cavern to retrieve the Crystal, and returns to Troia, where the Clerics agree to lend Cecil the Crystal in order to rescue Rosa. However, they do not get it back. They later appear on an airship during the battle against the Giant of Babil. Afterward, two of them go to the Tower of Prayers in Mysidia to pray for Cecil.
The Epopts

Before the start of Palom's tale in The After Years, one of them falls ill and it is implied the illness is very debilitating, or even fatal. The Epopt leaves her position and Leonora replaces her shortly after the beginning of Palom's Chapter.

Etymology

Epopt comes from the Greek language, which refers to an individual who is initiated into the mysteries of a secret system. It originally referred to those who had joined the epoptia and learned the mysteries of the goddess Demeter in the initiation ceremony called the Eleusinian Mysteries.
