The grieving bird cast a spell without the Mother's knowledge.
So the mistakes would not be repeated, and the cycle of sadness would end.
The large bird cast a spell.
Should the bird die, the spell shall break, and the pillar of light shall disappear.
I leave this behind and pass it down, in the same state of mind as the bird with the face.
--Gate of Illusion (E-2) Tablet
Ba is a Sub-Boss in the Gate of Illusion. It is a large bird with a human-like head that resides in an aviary kind of room. To defeat it, Lemeza must be careful not to fall off the small ledges present in the room or get knocked into (E-1).
Ba begins in a passive state hanging from the center of the room. After he is struck, he drops down, then flies back up and begins to fight.
- Ba flies around the room. Collision will do damage and probably knock Lemeza down into (D-2), forcing him to restart the fight.
- Ba pauses in mid-air and fires four feathers in all directions.
- May do this attack twice in quick succession
- Use Lamp of Time
- Stand at the far edge of the of the central platforms so that your weapon will reach.
- After awakening Ba, use the Lamp of Time just as it rises into position (See image)
- You should be able to kill Ba before the effect expires
- The Axe+randc.exe+mekuri.exe combination kills Ba in 7 hits to the head.
- Be sure to destroy the hand statue on the left of the central wall to open the (D-2) ladder back to (D-1) and (E-2).
- If you stand on the platform directly off the entrance ledge, you'll only get knocked onto the small platform on the wall if he hits you, and you can throw chakrams or shurikens with relative safety.
The ancient Egyptians believed that a human soul was made up of five parts: the Ren, the Ba, the Ka, the Sheut, and the Ib. The 'Ba' is in some regards the closest to the contemporary Western religious notion of a soul, but it also was everything that makes an individual unique, similar to the notion of 'personality'. The ba was always portrayed as a human-headed bird, usually a human-headed falcon.
