This looks like a sweet little kitty, but its Scratch isn't so cute.
—Bestiary entry (PS)
The Lycaon, also known as Spek Tor, is an enemy in Final Fantasy VI. It always shows up in groups and with other enemies. They can be useful as a Rage for Gau, giving him access to Blaster and inherent Haste.
Their HP is so low that virtually any attack ought to kill them at this point in the game. Their special attack, Scratch, is only a slightly stronger physical blow, plus they only use it and their normal attack.
[view·edit·purge]Lycaon was the son of Pelasgus and Meliboea, respectively king and queen of Arcadia, in the form of a wolf starting the myth that Lycaon, the founder of his own cult, became a wolf. Lycaon is also the son of King Priam and Laothoe of Troy. He was captured by Achilles as a slave but was freed. He was later killed by Achilles when the latter was in a rage after Patroclus' death by the hands of Hector.
