    -=-=- 2. Frequently Asked Questions -=-=-
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Who exactly is Glycinia?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Glycinia is a fairy who you will get to meet throughout the game. You 
    can find her in (not so random) encounters during the game but only 
    once. This secret character is different from other characters in one 
    way; she will appear will different equipment at different times. She 
    will always come with a Glass Pumpkin and either a Dragon Gem or a 
    Cassowary Feather. You will only get one additional special item if you 
    do choose to recruit her. If Glycinia dies in one of the encounters, she 
    drops the Glass Pumpkin she holds (Thanks Tetra!). After you have 
    recruited Glycinia, her death quote will be: "Aaahhhh! Why me again?".
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    When should I look for her?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Recruit her when you want to. You can avoid encountering Glycinia 
    anytime if you _pass over_ the area she is in. If you need a fairy for 
    your party and want to use her equipment to its fullest extent get her 
    at Vespa before your seventh battle. Just make sure the last area you 
    pass over is Vespa and not a different area. 
    
    If you want some stronger items and a better Glycinia then find her 
    later in the game. You may want to recruit Glycinia early in the game so 
    you can sell her Glass Pumpkin. You may also want to recruit her so you 
    can get a rare item that you can only get after a versus battle. I like 
    getting her early on and besides, how long are you going to use a 
    Crescente for? 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What should I expect in a battle?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You will always find Glycinia in a semi-random battle where you have to 
    defeat all the enemies. The enemies will change from time to time just 
    like Glycinia does. Her dialogues and Alphonse's will change as well but 
    she will always join you as a guest during the battle. Glycinia will 
    always run away from the enemy and keep her distance but will sometimes 
    she will use a long ranged attack like Magic Missile. Enemies with bows 
    will hit Glycinia most of the time so try removing those enemies first. 
    
    After the battle you'll have a chat with Glycinia and have the chance to 
    recruit her. If you choose not to recruit her the first time you see 
    her, you'll never see her again (Yay! erm..booo). If you do choose to 
    recruit Glycinia, she will tell you she's looking for her sister and 
    can't find her alone. Expect to meet Lubina, Glycinia's sister, later in 
    the game.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What can I do with Glass Pumpkins?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you try to sell Glass Pumpkins, you will find out nobody wants to buy 
    them. Every shop will have a Glass Pumpkin on their store shelf (along 
    with a Flame Shield and an empty Healing Essence vial) but only one shop 
    will actually buy them. If you visit the mermaids, you will be given a 
    hint, "I'm sorry, but we don't stock that. There's a man in a town to 
    the south who might be interested...". The mermaids are referring to the 
    Pumpkin Head in Scabellum who will buy Glass Pumpkins for 2000 Goth. The 
    Pumpkin Head will only start appearing after Deneb has joined your 
    party. If you sell five Glass Pumpkins to the Pumpkin Head, the 
    Firecrest will open up as an accessory you can buy. 
    
    You can also equip Glass Pumpkins as a firecrest substitute but early in 
    the game you may be having Goth problems. The Glass Pumpkin does provide 
    +5 resistance to all elements along with 15 spell and physical defense. 
    The drawback with equipping Glass Pumpkins is their heavy weight but as 
    an accessory, beast and dragons may equip them.
                                            
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What's happening at Gracula?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you go to Gracula with Glycinia, Glycinia will start flying around 
    and say "Smells like Lubina!!!". This will only happen during your first 
    battle at Gracula. Well that's nice and dandy but what does that really 
    mean? Glycinia is looking for her sister Lubina and if her instincts are 
    right Lubina is in front of your eyes. 
    
    There will be an enemy Gremlin named Lubinnya in Gracula who will not 
    attack your characters. If you move Glycinia to a spot adjacent to her 
    she will come out of her disguise and join as a guest for the remainder 
    of the battle. At the end of the battle you'll have the choice to let 
    Lubina join you. If you choose not to add Lubina to your troops, 
    Glycinia will leave with Lubina but leave her equipment with you. 
    
    Lubina, like Glycinia also has a death quote after you have recruited 
    her. Lubina's quote is: "NOOOOO! I still want to play!".
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I thought this was a Glycinia guide, why is Lubina so important?
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you reunite the Fairy sisters, you will be rewarded with their own 
    special attack. When you move the sisters next to each other the spell 
    Magic Barrage will open up. It has three different flags, Special, 
    Eradicate, and Selfdamage. You can't see it on their status screens but 
    if you look at their talents during a battle, it will show up. Magic 
    Barrage costs 0 SP and takes up both the sister's turns. Both of the 
    sisters will attack and then damage both of them afterwards. Like other 
    SP talents, it can hit through Necklaces of Resist. 
    
    After you expand Magic Barrage's Area of Effect, you can hit multiple 
    targets. You'll be able to hit in a five-square cross and like other 
    holy spells it is based on intelligence, not agility. If Magic Barrage 
    was based on agility it would be much more useful. The spell's damage, 
    hitroll, and range will be based off the fairy that casts it. They 
    damage themselves by one half of their current hitpoints (rounded down) 
    but the damage will never kill them. When you attack you will deliver 
    heavy damage and eradicate the undead. I find this attack useful in 
    Versus Mode along with other Fairy talents.

    -=-=- 3. Glycinia Locations -=-=-
    
    Now for the meat of this guide, Glycinia's locations and equipment. I'll 
    follow this format throughout the guide: 
    [Class: Element, Alignment - Equipment - Spells (not including 
    specials)].  
    
    Glycinia will pop up in different places at different times of the game. 
    You can avoid Glycinia temporarily by passing over the area where she 
    can be found.

    Glycinia, "Lubina, where are you hiding? Come out!!!"
    
    Enemies:
    Gremlin: Wind, N - Composite Bow, Hard Leather, Glass Pumpkin
       War Trophy: Glass Pumpkin
    Gremlin: Fire, N - Great Bow, Hard Leather
       War Trophy: Great Bow
    Lubinnya: Gremlin?: Water, N - Sherwood Bow, Hard Leather, Amulet

    Red Dragon, C
       War Trophy: Urn of Chaos
    Cockatrice: Wind, N
       War Trophy: Tome of Discipline
    
    Lubina, who has the Don Quixote emblem, is in a Gremlin disguise. If you 
    don't have Glycinia with you at the time, you will see eight Gremlins 
    and no Lubinnya or Glass Pumpkin.
    
    If you loose Lubina you get 1000 Goth, which is quite nice, but you'll 
    forfeit the chance of recruiting her. Glycinia will not notice her dead 
    sister's corpse and stay with you _forever_.
    
    ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
    After Battle 15 (Haena) go to Gracula _without_ Glycinia
    ~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.
    Alphonse, "Huh?!...What's with all these gremlins!"
    
    Enemy Team: 
    8 of these Gremlins with varying elements usually Fire or Wind
    Gremlin: Element, C - Pike, Chain Mail, Iron Helm
    Gremlin: Element, C - Composite Bow, Chain Mail, Iron Helm
    Gremlin: Element, C - Great Bow, Chain Mail, Iron Helm
    
    Without Glycinia in your party you will face lots of Gremlins (I guess 
    Lubina wanted to show the Gremlins how to do a real "Fairy's Kiss"). I 
    have seen the Gremlins drop three different items randomly. The Gremlins 
    will drop either a Tome of Discipline, Sword Emblem, or Sacrificial 
    Doll.
    
    Lubina will not be found anywhere. There will not be a Gremlin carrying 
    a Glass Pumpkin but many that will attack you with confusion and 
    petrifying SP talents. At the end of the battle Alphonse will ponder, "I 
    wonder if there are gremlin nests nearby..."

    To the coolness of ROMs which first got me into the Ogre Battle Saga 
    with Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen.
    
    To my local Babbages for being the only store that had this game during 
    the first week it came out. I went to Target, Toys R Us, KB Toys, Wal-
    Mart, Funcoland, and finally Babbages to find 10 on their shelf.
    
    To Atlus and Quest because without them I would never see this game.
    
    CyricZ for making a useful Ogre Battle 64 walkthrough, better than 
    Prima's in every way.
    
    And to, of course, CJayC for making GameFAQs.
