Final Fantasy VI PlayStation esper section

Cait Sith (ケット・シー, Ketto-Shī?) is a recurring creature in the Final Fantasy series. It is a feline beast whose exact traits vary—sometimes it is an enemy, sometimes a summoned monster and sometimes an ally. It most commonly appears as an anthropomorphic black cat with a white stomach wearing red boots, a small red cape or scarf, and a golden crown. When appearing as an enemy, though, it is often a palette swap of the Coeurl. Cait Sith's most prominent appearance is in the Final Fantasy VII universe, where he has appeared as a playable character.

The Cat sìth (pronounced "Caught Shee") is a fairy creature from Celtic mythology, said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands. It literally translates to "mound cat", referencing the fairy forts commonly held to house fairies of all kinds. English speakers may be familiar with its usage in the term bean sí, banshee.

Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a witch who could transform into a cat and back up to nine times. After the ninth transformation, they would be unable to return to human form. This is speculated to be the origin of the proverb "a cat has nine lives", as opposed to some other number.
