- “Shiny crystal light, energize! Fairy!”
- —Quote when summoned in the PS version
The fairy in Final Fantasy Tactics is covered in its wings, and releases feathers onto the battlefield healing allies within its range of effect. This summon is stronger than Moogle and has a larger area of effect.
The Faerie is based on a fairytale fairy, only with the wings of a bird instead of a dragonfly's or butterfly's.
It costs 28 MP to cast, has a speed of 25, and requires 460 JP to learn.
During the Crystal War, a freelance pixie named Titania fought alongside her nine summoned Faeries to aid the Allied Forces of Altana. Although Faerie cannot be summoned by players, Titania's Faeries cast healing magic on both players and allied NPC soldiers during Campaign Battles, an allusion to Faerie's role as a healing summon in Final Fantasy Tactics.
Fairies appear as the familiar of the Scholar job and aid their summoners with their healing and defensive magic. There are two fairies, Eos and Selene, who specialize in healing and support magic respectively.
A fairy is a type of mythical being or legendary creature, a form of spirit, often described as metaphysical, supernatural or preternatural.
- Fairy was also the name of a Final Fantasy XI server, which was shut down on March 22nd, 2010.
