The Salamand Entite is an enemy in Final Fantasy XII. It is the Fire-elemental Entite, and is found at the Primary Tank Complex or Central Junction in the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea when there are no clouds and the sun shines brightly.

However, it will still occasionally appear while "sandstorms" are occurring. Salamand Entite is also the only Entite that is present most of the time on a map, unlike other Entites that require special weather conditions in order to appear. It is likely to be the first Entite the player will encounter in the game, unless they venture into the Westersand during a sandstorm before entering the Ogir-Yensa Sandsea. It is also fought in the International Zodiac Job System trial mode at stage 73 along with Fire Elemental x4.

Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

When the gods looked down on Man, shivering in his ignorance, they bestowed upon him the gift of fire. So did the gods give both warmth and knowledge to Man. Gradually, Man grew wiser, and made many things. Yet, when war came, he used the fire of the gods for the taking of life, and the gods became angry, scorching the world.
In this inferno was born the salamand entite.

Page 2: The Entite Pact Edit

To prevent the ne'er-sated hunger of flame from consuming all, drink only from that water which will ne'er parch, and thereby shall it be sated.
Only then shall the shining electrum be revealed at last beneath burnt-weary ash.

Battle Edit

Salamand entite

Engaging the Salamand Entite.

Like the other Entites, Salamand Entite's attacks consist of Silencega, Sleepga, and Fear, which reduces a character's MP. Its attack spell is Firaga. Also, like the other Entites, it is docile, but attacks when provoked or when magick is used nearby. Salamand Entite should be avoided during the party's first visit to the sandsea during broad daylight, as it is the most powerful Entite offensively (along with Mardu Entite).

The Salamand Halcyon is a rare steal from the Salamand Entite, a loot item necessary to make the Arcturus.

Etymology Edit

Salamander is a mythological reptile believed to be able to breathe and resist fire. In legends, ancient alchemists are said to use Salamanders to determine the heat of the fire necessary to turn lead to gold.

Salamand is also the name of a town in Final Fantasy II that is visited several times. However, the Salamand of Final Fantasy II is a cold and snowy town, and the similarity in name may simply be a coincidence. The name may instead be an allusion to Vagrant Story, another game by Yasumi Matsuno who was the original director for Final Fantasy XII. Salamander Ring in Vagrant Story was said to be a ring imbued with the essence of a salamander fire spirit.
