Creation and developmentEdit
As opposed to the first game, which emulated old Final Fantasy games before characters had fleshed out personalities, UPRC aims to make each character feel very unique in terms of personality in Final Fantasy Blackmoon Prophecy II. All of the character personalities in the game are slightly based on other characters from the Final Fantasy series. Zephyr is based on Zidane Tribal from Final Fantasy IX.
Zephyrus, also known as "Zephyr," is the Greek god of the west wind.
