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".

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.
