Screenshot of the Cactoid family from Final Fantasy XII. When the player comes to the village in the Dalmasca Estersand and crosses the river, they find the village on the northern shore occupied by a disgruntled Cactoid matriarch and her children. The villager Ruksel explains that the Cactoid is looking for her eldest son Dran, who has been terrorizing the desert, and has forced the villagers to search for him in areas beyond the desert. Vaan must locate the discarded Cactus Flower from the Flowering Cactoid Hunt, and it grows back revealing the Flowering Cactoid was Dran. The player can then take Dran back to the North Bank and the Cactoid matriarch will depart and set the villagers free.
