What is the plural of Ix? Ixa? Ixes? Ices?

Ixes, but if you're being good you shouldn't really make names plural. Instead, say many Luxuxi.

Surely "Luxuxi" is the singular form, if Ix's description reads:

Ix's description wrote:
...Ix was a courageous Luxuxi spirit...

(note the article)

Just as human pluralises to humans, should Luxuxi not pluralise as well (as it would in "many [Luxuxi]")?

In which case, what would be the plural then?

If Luxuxi is the plural, the description is wrong.

Luxuxi is singular AND plural, like sheep or fish.

Mass nouns represent, although to say "Luxuxi spirit" is redundant.

That's your personal opinion. I disagree.

Then it is settled: we remove Ix and replace him with Valentina, which is actually the plural of Valentinum.

Players control a small cloud of valkyrie warriors, you see.
