Ffxii espers famfrit
The hideous, darkly clouded form of Famfrit, scion in opposition to Holy Queen Emmerololth, scion of light, was anathema even to his creators. Thus, after a great battle, was he broken and sealed within armor laced with wards. The confines of his armor are void of light, so is he called the Darkening Cloud. Men fear the rain that falls from the black clouds that ooze from that giant ewer as a herald of chaos and waste.
Clan Primer Bio

Famfrit, the Darkening Cloud (暗闇の雲ファムフリート, Kurayami no Kumo Famufurīto?, lit. Famfrit, the Cloud of Darkness) is an Esper from the world of Ivalice. The Esper of Water, he represents the Zodiac sign of Aquarius, the Water Carrier, and he carries a large jug on his shoulder. From his power of Water, his color sign is clear. Famfrit is also referred to as the Kumbha Ascendant, which is the Sanskrit name of its Zodiac sign as used in Jyotish (Hindu) astrology.

AppearancesEdit

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

For the battle information, see: Famfrit (Final Fantasy XII Boss)

It is never revealed where Famfrit was discovered, since he is summoned by Dr. Cid when the party fights him at the Pharos. Dr. Cid may have found him during his research into nethicite, or simply used the nethicite to obtain him at that moment from the Pharos's peak, the Sun-Cryst's Womb.

When both Cid and Famfrit are defeated, the player obtains the glyph needed to command the Esper. He is the fifth of the five Espers obtained during the main storyline.

AttacksEdit

Tsunami

Briny Cannonade: A Water-elemental attack, and one of the few offensive Water attacks the party can use in Final Fantasy XII.

Tsunami: A Water-elemental attack, and Famfrit's ultimate attack. In the middle of a maelstrom, Famfrit stands up against the rain. He swings the chain of his giant ewer like a sling. The ewer tips and spills the water over the enemies sending huge waves to strike all foes in range.

EtymologyEdit

Famfrit's title alludes to the Cloud of Darkness from Final Fantasy III, using her exact name in the Japanese version. His stance as the Esper of Water may be intended to reflect the Cloud of Darkness's desire to "flood" the world with darkness, or to the literal deluge suffered by the world in Final Fantasy III. Famfrit's armor—sky-blue with a narrow eye-hole and gold highlights—resembles that of Exdeath from Final Fantasy V, and their destructive intentions are similar too.

TriviaEdit

  • Famfrit is the only Esper called by name in Final Fantasy XII, by Dr. Cid.
