Cait Sith is a Soul of Rebirth enemy in Final Fantasy II. It is a palette swap of the Werepanther, and most likely a reference to the Final Fantasy IV Cait Sith. As well as Coeurl, it uses the Blaster ability and may inflict instant death with its normal attacks. While posing a high threat with the instant death capabilities of their physical attacks, the chances of this happening are low. Equipping Ribbons will help with dealing with Blaster, while the player can deal with the enemy in any way they see fit as they are not very powerful enemies.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Cat sìth (meaning "faerie cat", pronounced "Kat 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.
The legends surrounding this creature are more common in Scottish folklore, but a few occur in Irish. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a witch that could transform into a cat nine times.
