Chestnut, Blizzara, Shriek Limit Glove


It is likely to be the first monster the player encounters which Quina can learn Limit Glove from.

Its Chestnut attack deals damage equivalent to its maximum HP–current HP to a single target, which can be dangerous when the party is at lower levels. Shriek simply inflicts Silence. Lastly, it can cast Blizzara.

Its weakness against Fire can be exploited for more damage.
