Worgen is a beast/wolf-type enemy in Final Fantasy XII found in the Mosphoran Highwaste and the northern Dalmasca Estersand areas. One spawns under the Berserk status in the South Skirts area of the Mosphoran Highwaste. The Estersand and Mosphoran versions have the same item spoils and immunities, but slightly different stats.
A slightly more formidable Alpha Worgen sometimes accompanies the regular Worgens.
Page 1: ObservationsEdit
Being a variety of wolf with fur of eye-searing red, known to hunt in well-organized packs. Of them, the alpha worgen are the strongest, and the pack leaders. The fur is doubtlessly for protection from the strong sunlight and arid environs in which they dwell, the exception being the band of bright yellow stretching from their eyes to their ears, which together with the red serves as a clear warning to interlopers and potential predators.
Page 2: Tips for the AdventurerEdit
Just about anyone can see the value of a well-furred pelt. Still, there are some treasures you'd even give up a fine pelt to possess. One famous example: throat wolf blood. I won't go into the market price, but seeing the adventurers lusting after furs with the merest bit of the blood splashed on them... Well, I think you get the idea.
The term worgen is a verb used in Middle Dutch which means "to strangle". This is alluded to in the monograph drop item, "Throat Wolf Blood", its best-selling drop item.
The Worgen's Japanese name is Warg Wolf. Wargs or Worgs are mythical Norse wolves, specifically Fenrir and his sons Sköll and Hati. Based on this, J. R. R. Tolkien in his fiction used the Old English form warg to refer to a wolf-like creature of a particularly evil kind.
