Aeronite is a dragon/wyvern-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found in the Lhusu Mines and the Pharos. It is surrounded by a thick Mist, making its appearance similar to that of a Giruveganus. Aeronites are flying enemies, meaning that the party can only attack them using ranged weapons (spears/poles work in the Zodiac versions), magick, technicks and attack items. If they are defeated out of the bounds of the map, they do not drop loot.

Page 1: Observations[edit | edit source]
- Being a creature of extreme rarity, its body lighter than the air itself. Vents upon its back belch heat and steam upward, keeping the creature from floating too high. Should these vents be damaged, it would rise up and be carried away on the winds. Aeronites are revered among many cultures as a symbol of holiness, appearing as a motif in sculpture and murals.
Page 2: Concerning Heraldry[edit | edit source]
- The airship armadas of one far-off land display the red wyvern wing as their heraldic crest. In this land, colors are used to distinguish class, with red being the most auspicious and thus the highest rank, used both for the royal family and, it being a military state, for their elite fleet. This Redwing Armada is said to be the strongest in the world, and serves as an excellent deterrent to invasion.
