The Fachan is an enemy that appears in Final Fantasy XIII-2.


Paradigm PackEdit

Once it has been tamed, the Fachan becomes a Synergist. It learns four commands, and its passive skillset lacks rare abilities. Its low stat growth makes it limited in use, and its two notable abilities, Enfrost and Enaero, are not learned until late in its development.
