The Vulture is an avion/diver-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in the Skyreach Ridge and the Trail of Sky-flung Stone areas of the Mosphoran Highwaste. Vultures are flying enemies, so the party must used ranged weapons (poles/spears work as well in Zodiac versions), magick or the Telekinesis or other ranged technicks to attack them. Six of them are also fought in the Zodiac versions' Trial Mode at Stage 20.
Page 1: ObservationsEdit
Being a variety of diver living primarily in arid, mountainous regions, skilled at riding the updrafts high up in the air, whence it spots its prey, and plummeting downward for the kill. Having wings tips the shade of purple oft seen in highland flora, this being a clear indication of long years spent in adaptation with its environs. Its long beak, too, is evidence of this, the shape being perfectly suited for the fishing out of smaller creatures from between the rocky crags.
Page 2: The Hunter's CompanionEdit
The true hunter looks upon the vulture with envy, and deepest respect. That the very word 'Hunter' comes from this diver's name is well known. Thus does the hunter strive to improve his eyesight above all else, until the day his eyes surpass the eye of the hawk itself.
Vulture are large birds of prey that usually feed on carrion (dead or dying animals and rocks). Vultures use their large wings to soar in the air for many miles without having to flap. Vultures are also called buzzards.
