The Erinyes Tunic (エリネスコート, Erinyes Coat?) is a piece of Clothing found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age

The Erinyes Tunic is located in a treasure chest in Jupiter Lighthouse, accessed by rolling a piece of pipe into a break in the floor, and can be equipped by all Adepts.

Statistically speaking, the Erinyes Tunic is one of the more powerful pieces of Clothing available. Although more powerful Clothes exist, one of them (Triton's Ward) is only dropped by an Ocean Dragon, and the other (Mythril Clothes) can only be made by forging a piece of Mythril Silver. The sheer simplicity of obtaining the Erinyes Tunic gives it somewhat of an edge over both of its "superiors". In addition, the Erinyes Tunic provides a decent boost to the Unleash rate, useful for any Adept who prefers to attack with a weapon.

Because anyone can wear the Erinyes Tunic, it oftentimes is used well into the late game, finding its way to somebody. The Erinyes Tunic is most often seen used by characters such as Sheba and Ivan, who need the extra Attack as well as the Defense increase.

Cultural references

In Greek lore, the Erinyes are the three sisters Alekto, Megaera, and Tisiphone, born when Oranos's blood fell upon Gaea after he was castrated by Kronos. Having live serpents for hair, the Erinyes' task is to seek out mortals who have committed heinous crimes (typically patricide and matricide) and goad them into madness and suicide. They were euphemistically called the Eumenides ("kindly ones").
