Cait Siths are mysterious avatars created by Altana to carry out the task of negating the future where the Crystal War continues, setting up the events of the Final Fantasy XI expansion Wings of the Goddess. Little is known about the Cait Siths, but they are initially referred to as the "Regal Felines" and see their mission more important than their lives.
There are initially 10 black Cait Siths and 10 white Cait Siths from a different dimension associated with Voidwatch. At one point in the story, the black Cait Siths combined to form a single entity. It is this entity that is a summonable Avatar available to players who complete the Wings of the Goddess expansion as well as the quest "Champion of the Dawn" or "The Dawn Also Rises".

Cait Sith appears on a card.
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.The
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.
