The Gespenst is an undead/reaper-type enemy in the game Final Fantasy XII. They are found in the No. 1 Cloaca & No.'s 3 & 4 Cloaca Spurs of the Garamsythe Waterway, once the player can open the flood gates. There is one Gespenst in No. 3 Cloaca Spur and three in No. 4 Cloaca Spur.
Chaining the Gespenst to increase the chance of it dropping the Book of Orgain can be done by circling between three areas; from No. 3 (or 4) Cloaca Spur, the player should take the northernmost east (west) exit into No. 1 Cloaca; from there, the player should go north to the Central Waterway Control, and circle back south into No. 3 Cloaca Spur.
Being an undead given to sudden manifestation in the streets of large towns where the living reside in numbers. Such that perish with sins unabsolved are barred from celestial reposed and cast into the darkness, from which pollution they rise once more. Though they are related in sort to the ethereal ghost, their fearsome appearance has led to the widespread belief that they are none other than the very hand of Death. This has led some necromantic authorities to place them in a genus altogether separate from their ghostly kin.
The Gespenst is located in the No. 3 Cloaca Spur. To find it, the player must close the No. 10 and No. 3 gates using the Sluice Gate Key and enter the No. 3 Cloaca Spur to find a few Gespensts. It is also located in the No. 4 Cloaca Spur. First, the player must close the No. 11 and No. 4 gates using the Sluice Gate Key. Then, enter the No. 4 Cloaca Spur to find several other Gespensts.
