The Silky is found roaming outside of Invidia and inside the Ice Caverns. The enemy can be a challenge when first encountered; due to the fact the player only has Brandt in their party and all of its abilities deal dark-elemental damage. The player should watch out for Suppress, which lowers the status levels of the target by ten percent. To defeat the enemy with minor difficulty, the player should equip Brandt with a Darksteel Shield, to nullify the dark-elemental attacks.
The player should do a mixture of healing with Cure and attacking with black magic. Once the player gets Jusqua back into their party, the Silky can be easily dispatched in one turn.
During Part II, the Silky can only be found inside the Holy Tree Tower bonus dungeon. When they are encountered in the tower, the Silky receives higher stats and retain the same abilities. To lower the damage dealt by the Silky, it is highly advised of the player to have high defense. The enemy is still weak to light-elemental attacks, so the player should attack with Banishga and light-elemental weapons.
