Final Fantasy Wiki

Members from the Wolf class.

In the binomial nomenclature used worldwide, the name of an organism is composed of two parts: its genus name and a species modifier. In Final Fantasy XII, the bestiary names monsters in a two-part format: the genus and the classification, which functions as species.

The genera of monsters in Final Fantasy XII correspond with the monographs, which give additional loot drops. The monographs are bought at a shop's bazaar as "Forgotten Grimoire".
