Summon a fairy that attacks your enemies periodically as wells as after you use abilities and spells.


Fleeting Familiar is an ability for Aerith in Final Fantasy VII Remake, provided by the Arcane Scepter Arcane Scepter. It summons a small fairy that follows Aerith and attacks with small energy pellets.


Fleeting Familiar's fairy flies toward the enemy to attack, supplementing Aerith's damage. While it seems like an underwhelming ability at first because the passive damage output is low, it can provide an additional source of damage during boss battles or more challenging opponents, as it lasts for a long time for only a single use of the ATB bar. The fairy deals minimal damage periodically, however, if Aerith uses any offensive spell and abilities, the fairy will shoot an orange energy orb that deals significant damage and stagger.

Fleeting Familiar by itself is not worth using, but it complements Aerith's other abilities from other weapons after their proficiency is gained. If Aerith uses a spell within Arcane Ward, the stronger energy orb attack will activate twice. Pairing it up with ATB Ward allows her to use more offensive spells and abilities by gaining some ATB back, with Lustrous Shield sets up for projectile protection. This can operate at a distance from the boss to deal huge amount of damage without risking Aerith. It can also be set up right next to a less mobile boss, or the center of an arena, so the wards can benefit other party members as well, with the shield adding more passive damage in contact with the enemy.
