Belias the Gigas is a powerful fiend and one of the twelve Lucavi, beings who were created to serve the gods but rose up against them in revolt instead. The gods cast the Lucavi down for their transgressions, twisting their once noble forms into hideous mockeries and binding them to magical glyphs that would limit their once-great power.
Flawed Servant. It is said that the gods once dwelt on the material plane in physical form, and that they once inhabited a glorious citadel where their worshippers could come to pay them tribute. Belias, the legends claim, was created to be the gatekeeper of this sacred city. But some unforeseen flaw in the creation process left Belias malformed and twisted, and the gods rejected him in disgust and branded him an abomination. Incensed at this mistreatment, Belias rose up against the gods alongside their other rebellious servants, only to be cast down.
Bestial Sentinel. Belias is a hulking and hirsute creature with thick patches of red fur covering his muscular blue body. His legs are those of a ram, and he has four arms: two small but muscular, like those of a human, and two thick and bestial like those of a great ape. He has two heads, one set above the other, both covered by brass masks with curling ram’s horns. He carries a great and ornate staff in one of his larger arms.
Unwilling Servant. Though undeniably powerful, Belias is not free to do as he pleases. When the Lucavi rose up against the gods and were defeated, the gods bound Belias to the Aries glyph, a powerful sigil that restricts his movements. He can only manifest on the material plane during the month governed by the Aries sign, and only in areas of frequent storms or great magnetic activity. If mortal warriors should encounter and defeat Belias during this time, they will obtain ownership of the Aries glyph and Belias will have no choice but to serve them for the remainder of the month.
Undying Loyalty. Of all the Lucavi, Belias is said to resent his forced servitude to mortals the least. According to certain myths from the region of Ivalice, a warrior-king was able to not only gain Belias’s servitude by besting him in combat, but also gain the Gigas’s respect by treating him with kindness. In gratitude, Belias is said to have sworn fealty to this king, vowing to stand watch over his treasure vaults until the end of time.
Whether such stories are true or not, it is a fact that those who try to plunder the tomb-vaults of this long-dead monarch seldom return.
