- "Earth's might enflamed."
Zagan has a base Venus power of 50 and also does additional damage equivalent to 6% of the enemy’s maximum HP. In addition, all enemies have their defense cut by 25%, and therefore their defenses can be cut down to a maximum of 50% with a second summoning of Zagan. Zagan, however, is not automatically summonable once one collects the required Djinn. Zagan can only be summoned once the Summon Tablet containing the sequence has been found and collected. The Zagan Tablet is found in Indra Cavern in the southeastern area of Indra, west of the beach where Piers’ Lemurian Ship is initially docked. Therefore, the tablet can be acquired very early in The Lost Age and the cave containing it lies along the way to Madra. A simple puzzle involving the Lash Psynergy is required to be solved in order to get to the tablet.
Zagan is the first Summon sequence players can find that requires Djinn of multiple elements. Zagan is among Megaera (Mars), Flora (Jupiter), and Moloch (Mercury) as a Summon sequence that can be used as a “placeholder” summon for more powerful “traditional” summons, in this case for Ramses. Since most players have one Venus Djinni and one Mars Djinni and do not have more than one Djinni of any element at the point they find Zagan, this summon is useful as the first relatively high-end attack that can be used by the party. It has 5/6 the power of Ramses but also can lower the defense of enemies. It can therefore prove useful in boss fights such as the one against Briggs in Alhafra. As more Djinn and Summon Tablets are collected, however, Zagan quickly becomes underpowered. However, it has one last chance to shine during the boss battle with Valukar, as an extremely efficient and costless way, in terms of djinn needed, to cut out about 800+ HP per summon because of the damage-in-proportion-to-max-health property of Summon sequences. Zagan also works well because it will not do nearly as much damage to you when the boss uses the monster skill Crucible, as higher level summon would.
Zagan in demonology is a Great King and President of Hell, commanding over thirty-three legions of demons. He is often depicted as a griffin-winged bull, although the body may sometimes be that of a man. His main power is transmutation — he can turn water into wine and vice versa, produce precious metals from base metals, and even instantly reshape any metal into coins of that type.
