A sphinx (plural sphinxes or sphinges) is a mythical creature with the head of a human and the body of a lion.
In Greek tradition, it has the head of a human, the haunches of a lion, and sometimes the wings of a bird. It is mythicised as treacherous and merciless. Those who cannot answer its riddle suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster. This deadly version of a sphinx appears in the myth and drama of Oedipus. Unlike the Greek sphinx, which was a woman, the Egyptian sphinx is typically shown as a man (an androsphinx). In addition, the Egyptian sphinx was viewed as benevolent, but having a ferocious strength similar to the malevolent Greek version and both were thought of as guardians often flanking the entrances to temples.

"Sorry for entering all of a sudden. However, there's something I have to tell the Prince no matter what."
"It seems the weapons... ... the 'Divine Beast Sphinx' that the Lord released have finally started to move."
"There was an incident a little while ago. The soldiers that were patrolling the ruins in the desert region seemed to have been attacked by the angel corps."
"Slumbering in the desert ruins, there are magical, cursed, and divine tools that contain tremendous powers. I believe they're seeking to destroy the ruins so that those items won't benefit the Prince."
"During one of those battles, the soldiers that were fighting seemed to have encountered a phenomenon where they're suddenly enveloped in a mysterious light released by the angels and whisked off to a faraway place."
"They returned in a hurry, but all that was left were the destroyed ruins with the angels nowhere to be seen."
"Afterwards, the angels have been repeatedly assaulting the ruins in various places. However, everyone's response to the attacks have proven fruitless. Without a means to deal with the phenomenon where they're engulfed by that light, the ruins are..."
"... The one thing that can cause such is no doubt the 'Lord's Authority', a power possessed by the divine beasts."
"If we're forced to look on with folded arms like this, it's only a matter of time before all of the ruins are destroyed. And it just so happens we have a plan from Katie."
"However, that doesn't mean they're invincible."
"According to the soldiers that rushed to reinforce the front lines, there's a report that those who were some distance from the battlefield aren't affected by the authority even if they're bathed in the light."
"In addition, there's also a report that they haven't seen any instances where the light is released again for some time once the authority has been released."
"I believe there's a limit to the effects of the authority and its range, and if it's cast once, it will take a considerable amount of time to cast it again... It is in that a solution came to me."
"We'll divide our forces into a first, second, and third wave and have the other teams remain in the back lines, and once we ascertain that the Lord's Authority has been activated, we'll switch to the next force... What I'm suggesting is a 'Total War'."
"A Total War is a special mission where you fight by using 3 teams."
"Organised into multiple waves, the units deployed during each wave switch will all withdraw and the team will be replaced."
"Due to the deploy cost not regenerating, how you use your cost in each wave will become a key strategy."
"Have you grasped the plan? This will be a large-scale battle that uses many soldiers and multiple teams. So I believe you'll need to take considerable consideration."
"Also, looking at the enemy's lineup, the first enemy wave will be mummies and regular angels and such that I believe won't have much in the way of battle strength."
"This is just my opinion, but I believe setting up the first wave in preparation for the next battle and focusing on the rear lines will be the meat and bones of this battle."
"With that, let us head to the desert region as soon as preparations are ready. From here, we'll commence the 'Total War'!"
|Mid-tier Map Opening|
Angel: "The orders given by the Lord is the complete destruction of the sacred tools that can be the human's strength to prevent those sacred tools from awakening to inflict vengeance on Tenkai."
Angel: "If it's not possible to destroy them, then we are to seal them deep underground so they won't be used. A thorough destruction..."
Angel: "No matter how many times you come, the result will be the same... ... Well, it appears the humans have wrung out what little wisdom they have."
Angel: "... With the power of 'Divine Beast Sphinx', we shall purify your foolish souls."
Zaram: "By the state of that statue... I believe it's in the midst of building up its power. However, if you agitate it, it'll begin moving before long."
[The statue of Sphinx will transform once it's defeated or after a certain amount of time has passed. After the transformation, Sphinx will paralyse all allies after some time has passed.]
|High-tier Map Ending|
Angel: "The main force will soon join us. Next time, we shall show you the true power of the divine beasts. ... That time will be the time the hope of you humans collapses."
Angel: "The sin of rebelling against the Lord, we shall make you regret it without fail."
|Extreme-tier Map Opening|
Angel: "However, we shall show you the true power of Divine Beast Sphinx to trample you as you slowly die with its overwhelming strength and to bestow a bottomless despair to the humans in the world."
Angel: "All troops, retreat. Suffering further damage will be contrary to the Lord's will."
|Extreme-tier Zaram Epilogue|
"The reconstruction of the desert ruins is progressing smoothly. The reason the ruins weren't completely destroyed is thanks to you, Prince. Once again, I shall give you my gratitude."
"Now then, that was the main reason I came to visit you today, but the truth is that it has been decided during a meeting of the people of the desert the other day to give you the title of 'Hero that Subjugated the Sphinx', Prince."
"This is for your distinguished service in protecting the desert country, and it is proof of the utmost respect and gratitude from us, the people of the desert."
"However, at the same time, it is the same title that was given to the great hero that is said to have rescued the desert country from evil long ago."
"And for the Prince who gained that title, a sword that was once possessed by the hero will also be given."
"An unparalleled sword that is said to be where the soul of the hero dwells. Because of that, it is a difficult task for it to choose a bearer and for them to master it."
"It won't work favourably in all battle situations, it would be best if you used it according to the situation and the way you fight."
"In the event you have need of the power of this sword, change your title to 'Hero that Subjugated the Sphinx'."
"If it's the Prince, I believe you can use the power that dwells in that sword without fail."
"I'll be looking forward to witnessing the brave figure that wields that sword."
