Hashmalum seems to be some sort of consigliere to Altima, as he is the puppeteer for much of the game's action prior to her resurrection. The Lucavi are written to be the saviors of Ivalice, immortal, all-powerful gods, but as Ramza and his troupe travel through the game, they discover this is not the case.
Fearsome though they may be, they are also mortal, and can be killed, especially since the writings say there were twelve originally, though after over a millennium, only seven remain (and a secret, optional boss).

The Zodiac signs of Taurus, Cancer, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and Pisces, do not have respective Lucavi Demons as far as we know. Either they were never sealed into Zodiac stones or were slain prior to the timeline of the game.
- The Lucavi's name comes from the Russian word "lukavy" (лукавый) means "deceptive". It is commonly used as a euphemism for the Christian Devil. It is related to the Greek word "lykaugea", which means "twilight".
