The monster attacks the party led by Riou and Alex, in response to their entry into the inner sanctum of the ruins. It stands between the party and the bag of Healing Herbs found within the treasure chest at the top of the stairs. Following the defeat of this monster, it is never mentioned again over the course of the game. While the party leaves with nothing of major value, they are able to save Hilda's life with the herbs.
Each of the monster's heads bears a strange pattern on the top of it. Whether or not these patterns represent some kind of rune, or are just different decorations, is unknown. Each of the heads is capable of a vicious bite attack, and can even perform it simultaneously. Double Head can also summon a rain of frozen energy or liquid fire from the sky, fueling speculation about the monster's apparent "Rune patterns".
As A BossEdit
Unless the party has a fair amount of defense, this boss can hit for considerable damage. It's bite attack does 20-30 damage normally, while its rain and fire attacks do upwards of 50 damage to the whole party. Zamza's Fire Dragon Rune and the Black Sword Rune does a great amount of damage to this boss. Unite Attacks are also highly recommended to put it down quickly.
