The Grimalkin is a Trophy Rare Game enemy found in the Tchita Uplands in Final Fantasy XII. It carries a rare item, Coeurl Whisker, needed for Orochi, the second strongest ninja sword in the game. If the player wants to farm the Whiskers, they must not kill the Grimalkin, only steal and then exit, as once killed, Grimalkin, as all trophy monsters, will never spawn again. A Coeurl Whisker can also be obtained from the Ose.

Bestiary Entry Edit

Derivation: Coeurl

Coeurl given to frenzied bursts of strength. Hunted in the Tchita Uplands.

Requirements Edit

FF12 Map - Tchita Uplands
Imginfo-icon
Map of Grimalkin's spawn point.

In order to find the Grimalkin the player must have spoken to the "Huntmaster" in Phon Coast and defeated Thalassinon, which will trigger the start of the Rare Game quest. Grimalkin then has a 10% chance of replacing one of the Coeurls in the Uazcuff Hills area of the Tchita Uplands. Zoning out two areas (most easily done by going east to the Cerobi Steppe) and checking each Coeurl for the spawn is necessary every trip.

Etymology Edit

[view  · edit  · purge]A grimalkin is an old or evil-looking female cat. The term stems from "grey" (the color) plus "malkin", an archaic term with several meanings (a cat, a low class woman, a weakling, a mop) derived from a hypocoristic form of the female name Maud. Scottish legend refers to the grimalkin as a faery cat that dwells in the highlands. The term may derive from Beware the Cat (published 1570) by William Baldwin.
