Sphinx' design originating from Shin Megami Tensei II

Sphinx (スフィンクス?) is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

A mythological creature that originated in Egypt, and was later imported to Greece, its name was actually originated in Greek though. The Egyptian sphinx is most often depicted as a reclining lion with the head of a human man. Less commonly, it will be a lion with the head of a ram, in which case it is called a "criosphinx". The most well known example of the Egyptian sphinx is the Great Spinx at Giza.

The creature was later imported into Greek mythology, where it became a daughter of Echidna and Typhon. This sphinx is described as having the head (and in later times, breasts) of a woman, the body of a lion, and the wings of an eagle. It sat on the road to the city of Thebes, and asked all who passed by a famous riddle: "What creature walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three legs at night?". She killed all those who answered wrong. Oedepus finally gave the correct answer of "Man", and the Sphinx immediately killed herself in rage.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Sphinx first appears alongside Seth in his boss room in the Abyss Tower instance of alternate Shinjuku Babel. It also appeared in the Ordeal of Soul event instance alongside Anubis. It was implemented as an obtainable PG and plug-in during the follow-up event.

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

"A beast from Greek lore with the head and breasts of a woman, but the body of a lion and feathered wings. The goddess Hera sent her to Thebes, where she asked a riddle of those attempting to pass. Oedipus answered correctly and she threw herself off the cliff, killing herself. In Egyptian lore, she was a statue related to the sun god. One Sphinx had the head of a pharaoh."

Sphinx is the Atma Avatar of Zaphir, one of the two bodyguards of Jinana. She is credited as the fastest Atma in her own tribe.

The desperate rescue is successful.
