FFXII - Espers - Mateus, the Corrupt

Meena Ascendant
Scion of darkness ruling and protecting those who live in the underworld, in opposition to Lahabrea, Abyssal Celebrant and scion of light. In the course of his rule, he submitted to avarice, and the darkness took his heart, transforming him until he was both evil and corrupt. Then in his cowardice did he bind a Goddess of the Demesne of Ice, and using her as a living shield, he challenged the gods. Defeated before their might, he fell screaming into the depths of hell, there to be imprisoned for eternity.

Previously seen in: Final Fantasy II as the final boss (Emperor Palamecia), and as the Totema for the Humans in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

Location: Stilshrine of Miriam, Hall of Worth. Fought as part of the storyline.

Advice: Accompanied by 5 Ice Azers (HP 2708, Weak: Thunder) who'll be busy casting Blizzard, Curaga, and Sleep. Piece of cake... Dispel on Mateus, then take care of the Azers before moving on to the main course. Another easy battle - Blizzaja is the only moderately damaging attack, so take care of Sap, keep your HP up, and if you have any trouble... you're doing something wrong because this should be easy!
