Shinra Analysis:
Something's not right. There's a protect spell on this creature! It's preventing me from properly analyzing it.
Approximate age: 1,000.
...How interesting.
Shinra Analysis:
I've analyzed the creature. There's a strange identification code on the back of its neck. Looks like a machine identification code. Continuing analysis...
Shinra Analysis:
I've analyzed the code embedded in the creature. It's a soldier ID tag from the Bevelle elite forces... from the Machina War 1,000 years ago. The Bevelle military inserted machine chips into fiends and trained them to be soldiers. This creature has stayed hidden for over 1,000 years as a living remnant of the Machina War. If you train it in the Arena, I can analyze its memories. Exciting stuff!

In the Fiend Tale endings, a notable Killer Hound was trained as one of ancient Bevelle's fiend soldiers for the Machina War, 1000 years ago. Because of the machina chip embedded within him, Killer Hound escaped Shinra, simultaneously causing ancient machina in Zanarkand to awaken. The scene ends with Shinra suggesting the Gullwings capture one of these ancient machina.
