Name: Carbuncle

How to Acquire: Carbuncle can be drawn from the Iguions that attack Rinoa in Deling City. If missed, he can be acquired later in Ultimecia's castle (drawn from Krysta). Carbuncle is missable.

CarbuncleName Meaning: The word carbuncle actually has several definitions, the most commonly used one being an infection in the skin that leaks pus. The second definition has a much stronger connection with the GF, being an unfaceted and dark red gemstone (usually referring to a garnet), matching the stone in the center of his forehead. The image to the left, from John Pratt's article, corresponds. Carbuncle literally means "little coal", or glowing coal. The carbuncle is Biblically significant, being one of the twelve stones representing the twelve sons of Israel, associated with the tribe of Dan. Likely this Biblical reference doesn't have much to do with the GF, but it's an interesting reference. The final definition simply refers to the color, a reddish-black.
