Ladon is the god worshiped by the Dragon Clan, and a recurring character who appears throughout the Breath of Fire series. His statues serve as save points in the first two games, while in Breath of Fire III he appears as one of the many masters that player characters can study under.

Appearances[]

Breath of Fire[]

Shrines containing statues of his likeness are common place in towns and cities, and the statues are prayed to by many people. This serves a practical purpose for the player as it allows you to save your game when you pray. In the event of a game over, you will return to site of your most recent prayer.

Breath of Fire II[]

The shrines which once served as places of worship to Ladon have disappeared, however statues of his likeness can still be found throughout the world including in most towns. However, outside of the Dragon Clan, few people seem to pray at them, with the general populace increasingly opting to align themselves with the Church of St. Eva. As in the previous game, praying to Ladon allows players to save their game, change which characters are in their party, or to exit the game. This is the religion that Ryu fights for during the course of the game. It is also revealed that within the Dragon Clan a select group of women belong to a religious order called dragon's maidens, who devote their lives to the service of Ladon and the furthering the aims of their religion. Ryu's mother, Valerie, is one of their members and is sent as a spy to the surface world to understand why the demon Deathevan is regaining his strength.

Breath of Fire III[]

By the time Breath of Fire III takes place, only two known statues of Ladon remain: one on Mt. Glaus, where it serves travelers, and the other found in Dragnier, the hometown of the Dragon Clan. Ladon himself resides behind a panel in a wall of one of Dragnier's buildings and only showing himself if Ryu examines it. When discovered, he will offer to allow the party to study under him as a master.

As a Master[]

Ladon is available as a Master when the party has acquired all 18 Dragon Genes. His skill Aura is the strongest holy elemental attack in the game and is otherwise only available in Warrior and Myrmidon dragon forms. In particular learning Aura from Ladon allows you to use it in True Kaiser form, although Meryleep's Shadowwalk is also extremely powerful and much cheaper. In terms of stats, Ladon incurs severe penalties to HP and AP so he is typically suited to characters who already have a healthy supply in the end-game such as Ryu, or characters like Garr and Peco who don't need much AP.
