SummonIconProcne.gif Procne (プロクネ, Procne) is a Summon of the Jupiter element. It is one of sixteen summons that is automatically available as soon as the player acquires the necessary Djinn.

Basic Mechanics[edit]

For a successful summoning of Procne, the player must have three Jupiter Djinn on Standby. Procne has a base Jupiter power of 120 and also does additional damage equivalent to 9% of the enemy’s maximum HP. In addition, the summoner's Jupiter Power will be increased by 60 points.

Procne's appearance in Dark Dawn

In Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age, Procne's summon sequence features a divine, beakless bird bringing up and incapacitating enemies in the sky with a giant tornado, then attacking the foes with Jupiter Psynergy before letting them drop down to the ground below. In Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Procne's sequence shows Procne, slightly redesigned with a darker color, flying across the sky with two small birds. The small birds circle around an energy orb, while Procne fires several energy blasts through the orb. The enemies will be taken off the ground into a tornado, where they will be hit by the energy blasts before falling back to the ground.

Analysis[edit]

Procne is the first truly useful Jupiter summon sequence. It is twice as powerful as Atalanta and uses only 1.5 times the amount of Djinn on standby. In Golden Sun, It can be very effective in the boss fight against the Killer Ape in Mogall Forest. In The Lost Age, it can be accessed after completing the Garoh-related quests, and can be useful when fighting Briggs and his men if fought after completing Garoh. In Dark Dawn, Procne is available prior to the battle with the Sand Prince, where its power can be useful.

Cultural Allusions[edit]

Origin: Greece

In Greek mythology, Procne was a daughter of Pandion and Zeuxippe, rulers of Athens. She was turned into a bird by the Olympian gods after her husband Tereus' attempt to kill Procne and her sister Philomela. In some accounts, Procne and Philomena were turned into a nightingale and a swallow respectively, both of which are shown in Procne's summon sequence in Dark Dawn.
