- Deceptively joyful colorations adorn this carnivorous ichthian of vicious temperament. Of its armaments, the naturalist Merlose has called it 'a beast most fierce, it having a lower mandible which jutteth out like a war-spear, this being used to rend and tear the flesh of its prey, and a voracious appetite quite exceeding its diminutive size.' When feeding in shoals, they are known to devour large creatures such as the wild saurian in the blink of an eye.

- A small kingdom comprising the lands around the city of Rabanastre, governing a portion of the Galtean Peninsula. While its territories are small, its situation at the crossroads of three continents enabled to prosper as a center for trade. More than 700 years are marked in the charts of history since her founding, yet many are the armies that have sought to claim her cultural richness and strategic importance. Upon her defeat to Archadia in the invasion of 704, her lands were placed under direct control of the empire.
