A harp with a rich timbre and wide tonal range.
Bloodstring Harp (血の十二弦, Chi no Jūni Gen?, lit. Twelve Bloody Strings), also known as Blood Strings and Bloody Strings, is a recurring weapon in the series. Much like the Blood Sword and Blood Lance, it drains HP from the target it hits, but has more range than the sword or lance.
Bloodstring Harp is one of three instruments, providing 13 Attack, 10% Weapon Defense, and drains HP of the target it damages. It can be bought for 10,000 gil at an Outfitter after Orbonne Monastery during Chapter 3 or found as rare treasure at Free City of Bervenia.
This harp can drain men's strength with its song.
Blood Strings is a low-ranked instrument that provides 22 Attack, 1 Evasion, and drains HP when it damages a target. It teaches the abilities Tonberry for 300 AP to the Beastmaster and Friend for 300 AP to the Animist.
