Auron Beastmaster Sword
More about: Auron Beastmaster Sword
Auron is a legend among the people of Spira. Ten years ago, he helped Yuna's father defeat Sin. Now he lends his power, his mind, and his unmatched experience to Yuna's pilgrimage. Although he seems true to Yuna's cause, the brooding guardian may have some other plans in mind at journey's end...
Auron Beastmaster Sword, though called a katana, actually appears to more closely resemble a nodachi or even the fictional Zanbatou. On his right hip, he carries a jug with the word "Nog" written on it (in Spiran script), a term used to describe a number of beverages including rum. The drink is featured in two of his Overdrives: the contents being spat onto his sword prior to executing Banishing Blade, or used to ignite the Tornado attack. The former likely pays homage to Japanese samurai, who would occasionally spit sake on their blades in order to "feed the spirit of the blade."
