IX

The Jabberwock is an enemy from Final Fantasy IX. It can be found on the Blairsupass Plains on the Forgotten Continent. If anyone has Float, it will remove it with Heavy to ensure that its Earthquake finds its mark. It will also cast Float on its prey with Light and Everyone Light so that its Aera spell will do more damage.

However, it tends to cast Earthquake right after "Everyone Light", making it an easy enemy even with its high amount of hp (they appear in pairs and have almost the same amount of hp than harder monsters of the same area like Adamantoise and Catoblepas).

The Jabberwock also has a friendly counterpart encountered in Seaways Canyon on the Forgotten Continent as part of a sidequest. It requests the party give it an Emerald, for which it will reward 40 AP and a Moonstone, which should be given to the Feather Circle enemy next.

Etymology Edit

Jabberwocky is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, a sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In an early scene in which she first encounters the chess piece characters White King and White Queen, Alice finds a book written in a seemingly unintelligible language. Realising she is travelling through an inverted world, she recognises the verse are written in mirror-writing and holds a mirror to one of the poems, and reads the reflected verse of "Jabberwocky." She finds the nonsense verse as puzzling as the odd land she has passed into, later revealed as a dreamscape. The creature called Jabberwock is never fully described but is accepted to be an unworldly and vicious entity.
