—Elimine granting the player extra items
St. Elimine was one of the Eight Legends who fought in The Scouring, wielding the light tome Aureola and the healing staff known as the Saint's Staff. Since she possessed strong faith, she was framed as a Saint (聖女, Seijo lit. Holy Woman) after The Scouring. Elimine went on to found the country Etruria and the St. Elimine Church.
Profile[edit | edit source]
During The Scouring, Elimine worked alongside the other Eight Legends with her legendary tome, Aureola, in order to defeat the dragons. With these weapons, the heroes were able to turn the tide of battle in their favor. The sheer power of these weapons caused a series of elemental imbalances throughout Elibe, forcing the dragons to assume a much weaker humanoid form in order to survive. However, this would be the dragon's downfall, as this allowed the humans to defeat most of the remaining dragons, with almost all of the others fleeing through the Dragon's Gate.
After Elimine's work on Elibe was done, it is said that she ascended to Heaven from a famous tower located in the Etrurian capital of Aquleia, which is now known as the Tower of the Saint and houses both her Aureola tome and her Saint's Staff.
She was apparently a beautiful, blonde-haired woman, as depicted in her cameo when linking The Blazing Blade with the Mario Kart: Double Dash!! bonus disc for extra items in the former.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
Elimine is possibly a corruption of the name Elemina, which is an uncommon name of Nordic origin. The name is thought to have come from the name Elen, with the diminutive suffix -ina/-mina attached to the end.
