The Etherian is a Rare Game enemy fought in Cerobi Steppe in Final Fantasy XII. Its appearance is that of the Jelly.

Bestiary entry Edit

Derivation: Jelly

A flan whose jelly transformed into an entirely novel substance due to a sudden change in its habitat.
This strain, as yet unrecorded in the Camp annals, is hunted on the Cerobi Steppe.


Requirement Edit

Once the player has hunted and vanquished all the foes in the Northsward area of the Cerobi Steppe, Etherian will drop from the sky to the very spot where the last foe is killed. It spawns no matter what the present weather conditions are.

High Arcana farmingEdit

After Etherian has been killed, the player can simply zone out and return, and it will respawn in the middle of the windmills, next to the trap. Because it respawns so easily, Etherian can be used for farming High Arcana, a loot needed for making some of the best bazaar goods.

Etymology Edit

Diethyl ether was once used in pharmaceuticals. A mixture of alcohol and ether was known as "Spirit of ether" or Hoffman's Drops. In the United States, it was removed from Pharmacopeia prior to June 1917.

-ian is a suffix when used as a noun means "One from, belonging to, relating to, or like".
