Elazul (瑠璃 Ruri, lit. Lapis Lazuli) is a major character from the Jumi story arc of Legend of Mana. With piercing blue eyes and a cape of sand, Elazul is the Jumi Knight of Pearl and possesses a core of lapis lazuli. Making a stunning impression on all who behold him, Elazul, alongside Pearl, embarks on a mission to search for fellow survivors of the nigh extinct Jumi race.

Namesake[]

Elazul comes from "el azul," which is Spanish for "the blue one."

Story[]

Elazul first meets the Hero/Heroine in Domina. He is seen harassing Rachel in the tavern, and depending on what you say to him, he will either join you then or later when you're on the town map. He is essential to the Jumi arc, although you can choose to bring him or Pearl.

The player helps Elazul in many quests, most of which revolve around finding the remaining Jumi or rescuing Pearl. As the story becomes more complex, Elazul and Pearl start to work together instead of one simply babysitting the other in hopes of stopping Sandra the Jewel Hunter and finding a way to save the other Jumi.

Elazul's quests revolve at finding the Jumi, who are due to the Jewel Hunter hidden among the townspeople around Fa'Diel. Although they manage to earn the trust or support of the other Jumi, they also reveal their identities and become victims. This makes Elazul more protective of Pearl and desperate to stop Sandra and save the Jumi. After the deaths of Rubens, Esmeralda, and Diana, Elazul grows bitter and more resentful of the Jewel Hunter. After Sandra kidnaps Pearl, he rushes to ask for help from the Hero/Heroine instead of arguing.

Elazul's past starts to be revealed after the events in the Mekiv Caverns. When Pearl turns into Blackpearl, and Sandra scratches Elazul's lapis lazuli core, he weakens greatly and recovers at the main character's house. Elazul begs Blackpearl not to leave him, but she does so, leaving him as a broken man. However, despite everything, Elazul finds strength in himself to search for his Jumi Guardian.

Elazul, alongside the hero/heroine, fights Blackpearl for the right to be her Knight, and after this, Blackpearl changes back into Pearl for the time being. 

The player learns of Pearl and Elazul's past when coming in contact with the Pandora's box inside Geo's Jewel Shop. Another Jumi named Florina is sleeping here, suffering from nightmares. The player helps her in her sleep, which reveals that in the past Elazul had another unknown Guardian whom he failed to protect, and Blackpearl, the Jumi leader Knight, scolded him for it before she suffered from severe damage to her core and turned into Pearl. By this time, Elazul had found her and swore to protect her as her Knight.

After these events, Elazul and Pearl track a jewel merchant to the abandoned shop in Geo, which was, in fact, a space between realities that served as the hideout for Florina, the Clarius and leader of the Jumi, inside Pandora's box. Here Florina agreed with Elazul to turn Pearl into Blackpearl to learn what happened.

Blackpearl explains it and reveals the Sword of Mana to Elazul, and he asks for that power to help their dying race. After this, the group heads to the City of Shining Destruction, the Bejeweled City.

Depending on the player's choices, Elazul may die at the hands of Sandra, and the final battle against the Lord of Jewels begins.

Following the Lord of Jewels's second defeat, either him or Pearl and the rest of the Jumi are revived by the Hero/Heroine by giving a teardrop crystal that caused him/her to be petrified. Elazul also convincing all of the Jumi to make a new Teardrop Crystal to revitalize the Hero/Heroine from petrification. Afterwards, he and Pearl finally take the Hero/Heroine back home and he/she was reunited with Bud and Lisa.

Elazul can join the Hero/Heroine on his/her adventure in any other day after being revived by him and the rest of the Jumi at the climax of Teardrop Crystal.

Personality[]

Elazul is portrayed as an individual who is impatient, quick-tempered, and rash; a fact that is made immediately evident right when he is first introduced in the town of Domina, where he is abrasive and rude when confronting Rachel to gain information about Pearl's whereabouts.

While these attributes of Elazul's are not very ideal, it is through them that one can perceive that he is rather responsible in executing the duties that have been ceded to him as a Jumi Knight - Ones that demand him to protect his Guardian Pearl at all costs. This has led to him reacting in an agitated, irrational manner each time he perceives Pearl to be subjected to danger; in The Lost Princess, for one, Pearl separating from Elazul due to a spell of absent-mindedness causes him to be, in a spate of anxiety, unable to keep his cool when conducting investigations on her whereabouts, as he berates himself for having failed to keep vigil over her safety as her Knight; in Two Pearls, when Elazul bears witness to the torment that Pearl underwent and her true self (Blackpearl) manifests in the Tower of Leires, he unhesitatingly attempts to challenge Blackpearl, throwing no caution to the power that she wields as a more experienced Knight.

Unsurprisingly, Elazul's brash demeanor is one that, in turn, makes him appear anti-social and disagreeable in the eyes of the general public of Fa'Diel. This could be seen as a means of self-preservation on Elazul's part, given his situation; as a member of an endangered race that is under the threat of extinction due to the work of an enigmatic jewel hunter; he is thus naturally inclined to be distrustful of the people he encounters.

Trivia[]

  • Elazul's personality is very similar to Squall Leonhart, a protagonist from Final Fantasy VIII. Because of his personality, he seems cold and anti-social to anyone that isn't Pearl. His original Special Technique "Laser Sword" is very similar to Squall's Limit Break "Blasting Zone" because both swords drastically increase in size, however, Elazul's is much thinner in comparison and its length is undetermined because of the limited screen length of the game.
  • As mentioned before, Elazul's likeness to Squall Leonhart is referenced in his claims and desire to be a Knight to protect a girl; this is very similar to Squall's proclamations before he was inaugurated as Rinoa Heartily's Knight.
  • Elazul is the youngest member of the Jumi race, unless one considers Pearl and Blackpearl as separate entities; in this regard, Pearl would thus be regarded as one who is much younger than Elazul.
  • In the manga adaptation of Legend of Mana, Elazul mentions that he has lived for at least 80 years.
  • Elazul is willing to sacrifice his life to preserve Pearl's, a fact that is depicted in the manga adaptation, where he rips out his own core to spare Blackpearl's before encountering the Lord of Jewels.
  • His core is lapis lazuli and is referred to as being called "Sky of Dust" in the game.
