A monstrous bird with a razor-sharp beak and giant wings. Although a skillful flier, it almost always walks on land.

Aevis species in Final Fantasy Tactics includes three birdlike monsters. They have incredible mobility and can fly over other units. Although being avian creatures they are weak to Earth-elemental attacks and also have a weakness to Wind.


Rank I
Jura Aevis (Juravis)

The Jura Aevis is the weakest variant of the Aevis, but its physical attacks are still quite strong.

The Steelhawk lives up to its name by lashing out with powerful melee "Scratch Up" attacks.

Rank III
Cockatrice (Cocatoris)

The Cockatrice is a very dangerous enemy on the battlefield. It can swoop in from faraway perches and petrify unsuspecting units with its "Beak" ability.
