The Yensa is an ichthian/yensa-type enemy from Final Fantasy XII, named for the region they inhabit. Unlike other ichthon-type enemies whom are docile when they fly up out of the water or sandsea, the Yensa is aggressive and will attack. The Urutan-Yensa use the Yensa as transport across the Sandsea.

Bestiary entryEdit

Page 1: ObservationsEdit

Being a great sandfish, living in the Sandsea of the Jagd Yensa that, when full-grown, becomes a bull yensa. Though commonly found moving through the sands, they do occasionally surface. Their outside being covered in a sheath of bony scales, from beneath which is secreted a viscous slime having the likeness of a membrane, this being to repel the intrusion of sand. The Urutan-Yensa have learned the art of harnessing these beasts as an excellent means of travel across the trackless Sandsea.

Page 2: The Town CrierEdit

Hear ye, hear ye! The Iron Stomach, a guild of tasters known for its lust to discover new edibles at any cost, has discovered yet another delicacy! Known as the yensa fin, it's not only delicious, but reasonably priced to boot! The response from housekeepers has been universally positive. One such convert recommends a soup broth for bringing out the fin's full flavor. A book of recipes is in the works!
