- "The heavenly huntress."
Atalanta is a Summon sequence of the Jupiter element. When two Djinn of the Jupiter Element are on standby, the Atalanta Summon sequence can be activated. It resembles a young green-haired woman garbed in Greek-style clothing summoning an array of green energy arrows that shoot down into the enemy party.
Atalanta has a base Jupiter power of 60 and also does additional damage equivalent to 6% of the enemy’s maximum HP. Atalanta is exactly the equivalent to two usages of the Jupiter summon sequence, with no actual bonus to put it ahead of Jupiter aside from using the equivalent of two Jupiter summons in one turn.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn[edit | edit source]
Atalanta was shown in a preview trailer at E3 '09 for Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. The summoning requirements remain the same as in the first two games.
Cultural Allusions[edit | edit source]
In mythology, Atalanta was a skillful warrior with a bow and arrow. She took part in the hunt for the Calydonian Boar, an immense god-sent monster roaming the countryside. She was also famous for running and winning races against all suitors, only losing to Hippomenes when he placed three golden apples, given to him by Aphrodite, to distract her along the course. Atalanta is one of the few female heroes recorded in Greek texts.
