The Sphinx appears as a large monster with long brown wings. It has the hind legs and tail of a lion, covered in purple fur, while its arms, chest and head are those of a woman. The face of the sphinx is framed by long pointed ears and a mane of long pink hair. This class only appears late in the game, first encountered as an enemy during the middle battles of the Final Chapter. Wild sphinxes can be encountered and potentially recruited in Latium and Argent, and in Mount Keryoleth during the scene The Sleeping Goddess.
Sphinxes use a peculiar attack called Evocation. This attack actually casts an Elemental Magic Plus spell (either Thunder Flare, Firestorm, Crag Press, Ice Field, or Dark Quest). The attack is determined by whichever element is most effective against the targets. Because most enemy units are least resistant to Bane magic, the most common spell cast by Evocation is Dark Quest.
