The Galypdes, also known as Aquila, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI.
It uses Cyclonic to put the entire party in HP Critical, and its special attack Flap is a powerful physical blow. They are a useful enemy to meet, as Locke can steal valuable Celestriads from them, and they can be morphed into Growth Eggs. Both of these relics are among the rarest and most useful items in the game.
