The Prototype is an enemy in the Dawn of Souls and succeeding versions of the original Final Fantasy, meant to resemble the Final Fantasy V enemy. It is a relatively rare enemy, only found in the deepest levels (B21 onwards) of the Whisperwind Cove in the levels resembling the Flying Fortress.
Though not as strong as the Soldier, it is highly resistant to magic and has a high amount of HP. Its main attack inflicts a decent amount of damage to the party however.
