The Eternals were beings of immense power, but limited creativity, who utilised the thoughts and emotions of so-called Ephemerals for their own ends.

Contents

Characteristics

The amoral Eternals made it their principal aim in life to amuse themselves, using Ephemerals as their toys. (DW: Enlightenment) In the course of their games, the Eternals would sometimes pose as gods and doom whole worlds in the process. (DWM: Uninvited Guest) These games were started by the Guardians of Time, whom the Eternals greatly respect as leaders. (PDA: The Quantum Archangel)

Though they were related to the Chronovores, they looked down on them as vicious predators. The Ancient Compact prohibited a union between the two beings. However, the great Kronos arose from one of such union. (PDA: The Quantum Archangel)

Through somewhat obscure means, as a punishment, the Doctor used the force of the Time Vortex itself to bring the particularly callous Lord Prospero and his social circle into the domain of Time, which would indicate that under circumstances they can transition from Eternal to Ephemeral. (DWM: Uninvited Guest)

Powers

The Eternals dwelt in the domain of Eternity rather than the smaller one of Time, which meant they were unaffected by Time and thus unaging. Eternals could not be destroyed, only transferred. Eternals could also use telepathy and create objects from the memories of Ephemerals. Their powers were not limitless and they could not read minds from great distance or from strong minds. (DW: Enlightenment) They could also appear in dreams. (NA: Love and War)

History

The Eternals were, as their name suggests, eternal, therefore a history of their race would be hard to find. However, the first event that they are known to have done was to banish the Carrionites into the Deep Darkness during the Dark Times of the Universe. (DW: The Shakespeare Code)

Possibly near the same time as banishing the Carrionites, the Eternals banished the Hervoken into the Deep Darkness also. (NSA: Forever Autumn)

Some of the Eternals passed themselves off as the Gallifreyan's deities such as Time, Pain and Death, a development which Lady President Romana found distressing. (NA: Happy Endings) Not all Eternals did this, and until he met the Doctor and probed his mind, the Eternal known as Striker professed that he had never heard of the Time Lords. (DW: Enlightenment)

At some point, the Guardians of Time set up a race for a group of Eternals, with Enlightenment being the prize. Groups of Eternals copied ships from various points in Earth's history, fitted them with ion drives and sails to catch solar winds and kidnapped Humans to run the ships. Though Captain Wrack almost won the race by destroying the ships of her enemies, the Doctor managed to push her off her ship and bring it to the Guardians of Time. (DW: Enlightenment)

The carnage of the Last Great Time War horrified even the aloof Eternals to the extent that they left this reality. (DWA: Doctor Who Annual 2006)

The Doctor later refers to the Eternals as though they have returned to the universe as he warns the Hervoken to beware of attracting the Eternals attention. (NSA: Forever Autumn)

(Redirected to Feolthanos article)

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Feolthanos
"You must give your anima to the heavens! Only then will you fly on wings undying!"
—Feolthanos

Feolthanos the Eternal (フォルサノス, Forusanosu) is the main antagonist of Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. The self proclaimed God of the Aegyl, he has been alive for a long time, thanks to the Auracite. With the barrier around Lemurés gone, he has started a plot to get revenge on the world. This vengeance is prompted by the Occuria, who tried to dominate the aegyl, thus causing Feolthanos to take them to Lemurés.

Plot

Exodus to the Skies

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
"Know that my name is Feolthanos, He who laid open this land of Lemurès for you, My followers and people, the aegyl. Know that I ever stand above you, delivering you from harm. For I am the Undying, the Eternal."
—The Canon, Book of Origins, Canto I

Long ago, Feolthanos was the leader of the Aegyl. During his rule, he took a Viera wife and had children. These children would become the Feol Viera, named after him. However, during his rule, he revolted against the Occuria, and took his people to Lemurés, using the Auraliths to lock Lemurés away in Mist, evading the Occuria while trapping himself and his people inside. Before he did it, Feolthanos left behind treasures for his Viera children, in the form of some Auracite and a giant airship, the Galbana. He hoped that they would be able to reach him some day in Lemurés.

When his people took flight and settlted in the land of Lemurés, Feolthanos wrote the Canon, a book of verse laying down the foundations and principles for the new aegyl community. Though his people had found a new home, Feolthanos still harbored a hatred and vengeance against the Occuria in his heart. Filled with revenge, he used the Auracite to build a palace high in the sky, even above the Purvama. There, he absorbed the Auracites' power, melding with the Auralith in his palace to become a god himself. He also used the other two Auraliths to steal the anima of the rest of the aegyl to prevent disputes and make them easier to control. However, he could not extend his crushing grip to the land of Ivalice, due to the barrier of the Occuria.

Centuries later, thanks to all the mist Dr. Cid released from the Sun-Cryst, the barrier around Lemurés faded, and Feolthanos could begin his revenge on the land from which his people had been exiled so long ago. Possessing the young Feol Viera Mydia, Feolthanos turned her into the Judge of Wings, an embodiment of his anger and hatred. It was because of the recent loss of her love Velis and the fact she was a Feol Viera that made her the best choice to be possessed.

Crusade

"Yes, Feolthanos. I'm beginning to dislike our gods."
Balthier

Using Mydia, Feolthanos gathered Auracite from all the main islands located in Lemurés to give to greedy Sky Pirates. He would use their anima to become even stronger. However, the young sky pirate Vaan and his friends started to interfere.

Feolthanos Exultant

After meeting Velis on the jungle island of Tswarra, the sky pirates began to realize that the Judge of Wings was but a pawn to a higher power. When Ashe and Basch joined Vaan's team and explored Ivalice for clues, they uncovered a relic in the Glabados Ruins that explained Feolthanos' past and motives. Venturing to the Feol Warren, they found and fought a sorrowful and murderous Mydia, who had just completed killing off the last of her race. When Mydia herself was defeated, her cold and manipulative shell of armor melted away, allowing the Feol Viera to finally break free of the chains placed on her. Sadly, the damage to her body was too great, and Mydia asked the sky pirates to defeat Feolthanos as she died in the exiled home of his wives and children.

By following Eternity's March, Vaan and his friends reached the Keep of Forgotten Time, Feolthanos' fortress high in the sky. They battled a army of illusion Aegyl and an illusion version of Feolthanos, and found out his true nature as the last Auralith. This Auracite gave him incredible summoning powers, and so the ensuing fight was tough. They eventually overcame all the summoned Yarhi, and pleaded with the aegyl god to stop his tyranny. But their intentions were for naught, and Feolthanos summoned a cloned Mydia that they once again battled. By this time, however, he had already absorbed enough spiritual power and caused the room to collapse, sending the party fleeing.

Fall from Glory

"We each face death alone. Those you have known and trusted... they cannot help you then."
—Feolthanos

A portal to the Womb of Feolthanos opened, and the party ventured in. Here, they traveled deeper into a maze of Feolthanos' own dreams and soul, battling ancient Aegyl along the way. They eventually found Feolthanos, who now was a giant demonic Yarhi called Feolthanos Exultant. However, the party managed to defeat the monstrosity in battle, and the powers he had drained from the aegyl faded away.

Back in Feolthanos' throne room, Vaan found himself alone, and Feolthanos appeared in his throne. Even though he had lost all the power of the anima, he was still incredibly strong, and nearly killed Vaan. However, Vaan's friends showed up, and together, they finally defeated the misguided Aegyl. Realizing what he'd done, Feolthanos finally allowed himself to fade away. However, with him gone, Lemurés started to crumble and fall from the sky, never to be seen by the people of Ivalice again.

Etymology

It is likely that "thanos" is a reference to the Greek word thanatos, the personification of death and mortality.

Trivia

  • Feolthanos bears some resemblance to Final Fantasy X's Yu Yevon. They are both revealed late in the game to be major antagonists rather than gods, they are both the final boss of their respective games and Feolthanos and Yu Yevon are both semi-conscious beings who can only summon the Yahri and Sin, respectively.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

The Eternals are an army of immortal spirits and champions in the service of Balthazar. They are his forces inside the Fissure of Woe, locked in an everlasting struggle with the Shadow Army of Menzies. Unlike the dark appearance of the Shadow Army, the Eternals are glowing spirits.

Despite the fact that they are immortal, they can be killed if your party lures hostiles near their position, and if this happens, your party will be immediately expelled from the Fissure.

For a list of all units in the Eternal Army, see: Category:Eternals.
