* DarkIsEvil: All of them (except for Ultima's first form) have rather frightening appearances, their entrances are marked by ghoulish EviLaugh that sounds like malicious spirits. They're also all cruel, bloodthirsty and violent creatures whose only goal seems to be causing havoc and inflicting pain on humans, if Belias' speech about loving the sound of human screams is any indication. The only exception is Elidibus, who prefers to mind his own business.

* Retcon: The game's script contains names for other Lucavi who didn't show up in the game, but VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII gave a proper origin for the Lucavi (all of whom appear in the game as the Espers, the party's summons), meaning that the names will probably never make an appearance as the other Espers in the game leave all the Zodiac signs accounted for.




to:

* WesternZodiac: They are associated with the Zodiac Stones and the respective signs. In the game proper, only the Scorpio, Aries, Gemini, Capricorn, Leo, Virgo and Serpentarius Lucavi appear, however.

A group of demonic beings who exist in another realm beyond Ivalice. They can only take form in the physical world via the Zodiac Stones; if a stone happens to be under the possession of someone who's about to die, [[ADealWithTheDevil the Lucavi associated with the stone offers them life and power]]. Should they accept, the Lucavi possesses the individual, effectively merging the two together, with their human host losing all their humanity in the process.

Added DiffLines:

* DivinelyAppearingDemons: In her first form, she looks relatively angelic minus the outfit, certainly much less frightening than the other Lucavi. Averted with the second form however.

Their ultimate goal is the revival of their master, Ultima. Once she is back, the Lucavi will be able to freely come and go as they please, without the need for the Zodiac Stones or human hosts. In order to accomplish this, they masterminded the War of the Lions, as the ritual for her revival requires an enormous amount of bloodshed.

* DragonInChief: To an extent - he's ''not'' more dangerous than his mistress and serves her loyally, but with Ultima out of commission Hashmal's been forced to enforce her law until she is found and resurrected. He's not exactly a joke villain, either.

* AloofBigBrother: He's quite cordial, even towards his family and moreso than even Zalbaag.

-> ''His due I granted him, no more and no less.''
* BeardOfEvil: Just look at it.
* DirtyCoward: He fights against [[spoiler: Zalbaag]] backed-up with ''five'' knights. Fortunately Ramza arrives in the nick of time to even the odds.

%%* BeardOfEvil: Just look at it.



* BlueOni: To both Ramza and Zalbaag's [[RedOni Red]] - his speech is emphasised by rationale and a controlled temperament]], as can be seen in his cordial manner and cool-headedness. Said rationality is, incidentally, shared by his half-sister Alma. [[spoiler: Can't be a coincidence that ''both'' are suitable Lucavi hosts, now - can it?]]

* AssholeVictim: From his point of view [[spoiler: his father was this, since he refused to claim the throne when the opportunity arose.]]

%%* BeardOfEvil



* EmergencyTransformation: [[spoiler: Turns into Adrammelech after being mortally wounded during his battle against Ramza and Zalbaag.]]



* Hypocrite: Has the gall to call Ramza a traitor despite [[spoiler: having murdered his own father ''and'' his liege lord.]]



* MasterPoisoner: Certainly knows about the properties of mossfungus...
* MissionControl: He's the one handing Ramza his assignments for much of Chapter 1.



* PowerHair : That fluff is bigger than his own head !



%%* TheStarscream

to:

%%* TheStarscream* TheStarscream: To Larg.



* UngratefulBastard: Calls [[spoiler: Zalbaag]] one during their fight.



* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:He's unceremoniously killed by Adrammelech seconds after he shows up]].



%%* ICannotSelfTerminate

to:

%%* ICannotSelfTerminate* ICannotSelfTerminate: Begs Ramza to kill him after [[spoiler: Folmarv revives him as an undead.]]




to:

* TokenGoodTeammate: He becomes this for the Order of the Northern Sky once Ramza leaves.



* 0%ApprovalRating: According to Delita, nobody mourned him.
* AdiposeRex: He's got quite an unsightly amount of weight.



* AssholeVictim: Between his willingness to starve his people to continue the war and the callousness he shows to his own subordinates, his death definitely has shades of this.
* BadBoss: Doesn't give a rat's ass about the people's well-being, and was perfectly willing to send thousands of soldiers to certain death if it meant defeating Larg.



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: How he meets his end.
* KarmicDeath: Considers commoners to be insects beneath his notice, to the point that he's infuriated when Orlandeau shows concern for them. He's killed by Delita, a commoner.



* TooDumbToLive: Has Orlandeau, his ''only'' genuinely loyal soldier and most valuable asset (wrongly) imprisoned for treason and replaces him with ''Delita''. It doesn't end well for him.



* Necromancer: He's strongly associated with undeath. The lake surrounding his castle is haunted by vengeful spirits, he summons a variety of undead opponents during his last battle, and in the remake [[spoiler: he revived Argath as a zombie.]]



* TheChessmaster

to:

* TheChessmasterTheChessmaster: Plays ''everybody''.



* TheStarscream: He invokes this trope when he reveals his true nature to Funerbis, followed by Loffrey killing the old man.

* TheStarscream: He invokes this trope when he reveals his true nature to Funerbis, Funebris, followed by Loffrey killing the old man.




to:

* WouldHurtAChild: He would have killed Alma had she not be [[spoiler: Ultima's host.]] Even then, he has no problem punching her in the guts.
