Imps are a diminutive species of demon in Final Fantasy XI, frequently sighted in the Near East in recent times. Though skilled in the use of elemental and dark magic, these natural-born cowards are not considered a threat when encountered alone. Imps carry a horn from which they produce a deafening noise, warning their allies and startling enemy forces.
In the time of the Great War, Imps were given the roles of scouts and messengers in the Shadow Lord's armies, and are thus well known to veteran soldiers even on the continent of Quon.
Critical hits or weapon skills from behind may break an Imp's horn, although they are able to utilize another one after the first one is broken.
