Urstrix is a beast/urstrix-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII located in the Giza Plains during the Dry, and in the Dalmasca Westersand. Compared to other enemies in these areas, it is more of a threat, but should not prove too difficult.

- Being the progeny of wildfowl taken into the magicite mines to ascertain the presence of noxious fumes. On occasion of a mining accident, these birds would be exposed to great quantities of Mist, under the influence of which they would at length give birth to chicks with stunted wings of a most peculiar shape. Perplexed, the hens discarded the unwanted, flightless brood, these becoming the feral urstrix.
