The Lucavi are a group of demons from Final Fantasy Tactics, who are working in secret under the cover of the Church of Glabados to revive their dead leader, Ultima the High Seraph. There are at least seven Lucavi, though one of them, Elidibus, is not necessarily connected to the other six. Each Lucavi is connected to a shard of Auracite, called a Zodiac Stone, which serves as a conduit for that Lucavi to exist in Ivalice. Each Lucavi also has a human host, allowing them to interact with others in Ivalice without drawing attention. The Lucavi are capable of switching between human and demon form via their Zodiac Stone.
The symbol of the Zodiac Braves contained these names written in ancient Ivalice script, and there are other names as well, though they will never make an appearance; most probably they were retconned in accordance to the beings that became associated with the six remaining signs. While unofficial, the retcon of Tactics would most likely identify the other six Lucavi as the remaining six Espers from Final Fantasy XII. This might not be a retcon, however, as the symbol of the Zodiac Braves was only ever seen as a sculpture in Final Fantasy Tactics and may well be an artistic creation within the context of the game (indeed, humans from Ramza's era had no idea who were the actual Zodiac Braves, and could have invented names similar to how demons from real world legends always have multiple names and varying status in the demon hierarchy).
The Lucavi employ many underlings, the most notable of which are the Archaeodaemons and Ultima Demons. Both are of considerable power, and the Ultima Demons can even cast the spell Ultima. During the battles against Ramza, Belias summons Archaeodaemons to help him, while Ultima summons Ultima Demons to help her. In addition, Celia and Lettie, who serve Marquis Elmdore, are really Ultima Demons, and if defeated in human form during the battle with Elmdore, will transform in their demon form, and continue fighting. It is likely that Loffrey is also an Ultima Demon since Ramza felt the same feeling in Loffrey's presence as with Celia and Lettie. Both Archaeodaemons and Ultima Demons were summoned by Folmarv to help the Undead Zalbaag.
Ultima is the leader of the Lucavi, but in her absence Hashmal is left to lead the effort to revive her. Ramza runs afoul of the Lucavi by discovering what they are up to, and Ramza is forced to fight and defeat the Lucavi one by one. By the time he catches up to Hashmal, however, he is dangerously close to reviving Ultima due to the countless bloodshed needed for the resurrection to work. Ultimately, Hashmal succeeds by committing suicide to fulfill the ritual. Ramza then battles Ultima, who transforms into a giant skeletal monstrosity mid-battle. This is still not enough, however, and Ultima is destroyed, though the resulting explosion devastates the area, and it appears that Ramza has perished as well. However, Ramza is seen by Orran Durai, so it appears that Ramza managed to survive the Angel of Blood's demise.
The Russian word "lukavy" (лукавый) means "deceptive". It is commonly used as a euphemism for the Christian Devil. It is related to the Greek word "lykaugea", which means "twilight".
