Pandemona

Culture:N/A

Pandemonia is from pandemonium, an English word referring to chaos or an uproar. Pandaemonium was also the capital of Hell in Milton's Paridise Lost. I have no clue what it has to do with wind, except that strong winds can cause pandemonium.

Cerberus

Culture:Greek

Cerberus is a three-headed dog who guards the gates of Hades, the Underworld. He made sure that no spirits left the underworld.

Alexander

Culture:worldwide (historical figure)

Alexander probably refers to Alexander the Great, a man who actually existed. Some believed him to be a son of Zeus or Apollo; historically, he was the son of Phillip II of Macedonia. Alexander was king of Macedonia, a country north of Greece, in the 300 B.C.'s. He went on to conquer much of eastern Europe and western Asia, but his empire fell apart after his death. Alexander appears as a robot, for some reason, in FF6,7, and 8.

Bahamut

Culture:Arabic

In Arabic mythology, Bahamut is a giant fish which indirectly supports the world, like Atlas in Greek mythology. Bahamut appears in the FF series as a gigantic dragon.

Doomtrain

Culture:folklore

Doom train probably refers to the Phantom train, present in FF3 (6j) and many folktales. The ghost train carries the souls of the dead to the afterlife.

Cactaur

Culture:N/A

Cactuar is a cactus. No mythology here; he's just a cactus monster Square made up.

I have no idea. I think Square just made him up. If you have any insight, please mail me: mail me.

Ok, everyone knows this one. Eden is the Paradise where Adam and Eve lived until they ate the forbidden fruit.
