Sic is a pet command in Final Fantasy XI. It is available to Beastmasters. Sic is related to the accumulation of TP, Tactical Points, and weapon skills. All enemy creatures gain TP throughout battles, just like player characters. Since it is these enemy creatures or summoned jug pets (familiars) that a Beastmaster ultimately charms, they also gain TP. Sic is available to a Beastmaster when he reaches 25 and has a 3 minute recast timer. When used, Sic will command the Beastmaster's pet to perform a special attack. These attacks are chosen at random from the list of available abilities each creatures has. If the pet does not have 100% TP or higher, this ability is wasted but the pet's TP is not.
Sic is an Egi command for Summoners. It is a command used to order the Egi to attack targeted enemies.
Turncoat is a level 4 ability for the Beastmaster. At the cost of 4 AP, x7 Topaz, x3 Lapis, 7x Aquamarine, 2x Amethyst, and 1x Diamond, the user will force a captured monster to attack the enemy at four times the strength of its level 1 ability.
A similarly named ability called Sic (はなつ, Hanatsu?) is the starting ability for the Beastmaster, which at the cost of 1 AP forces a captured monster to attack the enemy.
To sic is to incite an attack by, especially a dog or dogs. Eg. "He sicced his dog on me!". It probably originated from the Icelandic "siga".
