The four Fiends of Chaos will be back in Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, and now we have a better idea of what to expect from Marilith. She was the Fiend of Fire in the original Final Fantasy. Her role will be reprised here, and she’ll use some familiar sorts of attacks.
Here’s the reveal of Marilith’s official Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin art and some in-game screenshots. In addition to being able to deal damage with fire, it noted that she’ll be able to petrify her foes. While she didn’t possess that exact sort of ability in the original game, she would be able to paralyze opponents during boss fights.
"But you woke me from my slumber!"
