Role in the series

Aguni first appears in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow when Celia Fortner decides that Dario Bossi is completely outmatched by Soma Cruz. In order to grant Dario enough power to defeat Soma he bonds his soul with Aguni and greatly increases Dario's pyrokinesis by far. Soma uses the power of Paranoia to enter the mirror behind Dario and destroy Aguni. If the player decides to defeat Dario directly (and getting a bad ending) then Soma would seal Dario's power with a Magic Seal which would cause Aguni to overload Dario and destroy him from within.

Aguni also appears in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin in the Nest of Evil

Battle Tatics

Aguni sends shockwaves of flame across the floor in a similar fashion to Holy Water attacks which can be jumped over, attempts to smash the player with his claws three times in a row which can be slid away from and would also fly towards the ceiling in order to hit the ground with great force. Aguni can also fly across the room, back and forth like a falling leaf, swooping down slightly in an attempt to hit you.

Soul Ability

Aguni's soul allows Soma to send a shockwave of flame in a forwards direction on the ground. This soul is very similar to the Frozen Shade soul, except that Aguni's travels across the ground much faster.

Background

Aguni is an incorrect translation of the name 'Agni', although he may be a pun on the word "agony".


Agni is a Hindu and Vedic deity. The word agni is Sanskrit for "fire" (noun), cognate with Latin ignis (the root of English ignite), Russian ogon (fire), pronounced agon, and ogni, pronounced agni (fires). Agni has three forms: fire, lightning and the sun.

Agni is one of the most important of the Vedic gods. He is the god of fire and the acceptor of sacrifices. The sacrifices made to Agni go to the deities because Agni is a messenger from and to the other gods. He is ever-young, because the fire is re-lit every day, yet he is also immortal.

His cult survived the change of the ancient Vedic fire worship into modern Hinduism. The sacred fire-drill (agnimathana) for procuring the temple-fire by friction - symbolic of Agni's daily miraculous birth - is still used.
