Final Fantasy Wiki

Antica is a genus in the Beastman family introduced in Final Fantasy XI: Rise of the Zilart.

Antica are a race of ant-like Beastmen that live on and in the island of Kuzotz. The Antica have transformed the former Galkan capital of Altepa into the central location of their empire, which spreads across the islands of Kuzotz.

The Antica reproduce very quickly, and are known to possess a sort of hive mentality. They are assigned a job and a number upon birth and they work at that job for the rest of their lives. Antica have no emotions, or any sense of individuality, so they unquestioningly obey the orders of their leader.


The Antica originally lived deep under Vana'diel. However, the Galka disturbed the Antica deep underground, and the Antica fought them, wanting to take the island of Kuzotz for their own. While the Galka had the advantage of power, the Antican hordes far outnumbered the Galkan people. Eventually, the Galka had to flee Kuzotz, which left the land in the control of the Antica. The Antica largely remained out of the Crystal War, though it is said that if the Antica had fought alongside the Shadow Lord, he would have almost certainly won against the Allied Forces of Vana'diel.
