The Dark Skeleton is an undead/skeleton-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII found in the Paramina Rift. Dark Skeletons can either be walking around or pop up out of the ground when approached. They also can be found in the Golmore Jungle Rustling Chapel area when all other enemies are defeated.

Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Being the black-boned demon-skeleton of a man whose strength faltered and failed in a place rife with darkness. They are driven by the need to create more of their ilk, and so they exude dark energies, polluting all around them. The greater their number in a given area, the more likely it is that others will join their eternal vigil.

Page 2: The Jobber's Gazette Edit

'Tis a well-known fact that black mages head off into the wilderness several times a year, clutching a death's-head from a dark skeleton tightly in their hands, but few know why they travel or where they go. Rumors speak of shady gatherings, or pilgrimages to the underworld, where demons impart dark secrets to them in return for grisly sacrifice, but such explanations are little more than idle conjecture. Though nonetheless prized for their skills, this mysterious custom has earned black mages a rather unsavory reputation.
