"Know thy quarry, know thyself."
- early naturalist and theologian, Frandelont Raimdelle.


Even during an age of strife, adventurers will frequently find time to step away from the battles at hand, if not out of necessity, then simply for a change of pace. Whether procuring pelts for sale at the market, gathering ingredients for alchemic endeavors, or finding a tasty morsel to quell the incessant grumblings of one's belly, hunting is an indispensable part of an adventurer's daily routine.

However, taking up a blade against the realm's wildlife can be no less dangerous than standing in a shield wall on the front lines of battle, or defending a fortress against a bloody siege. The harsh environs of Eorzea have left their mark on the land's fauna, culling the weak and sharpening the senses of those that survived; and while they may not be tainted with the same dark ambitions that poison the hearts of men, the beasts are equally ruthless when threatened. Thus, a truly skilled hunter will never step into the wild without first fully understanding the beast they pursue.


[edit] Taxonomy

The fauna and flora of Eorzea were long-ago collected into a seminal bestiary called the Raimdelle Codex. In the modern age, it is still the go-to resource for for identification and classification of the region's lifeforms. When limited to the range of monsters you will face in Eorzea, the biological classification system is as follows.

Kingdom
Also known as Regnum, contains three categories, Bloodborn, Bloodless, and Transcendents
↳ Class
Also known as Kindred, contains twelve major groupings—anomalies are placed in Undocumented
↳ Genus
An archetype of monster, such as dodo or spriggan.
↳ Species
Divisions of a genus that look slightly different—coblyns (blue) v. doblyns (yellow), for example
↳ Monster
Individual enemies—members of the same species with different names.

Because the codex was organized in a "top-down" fashion, many individual terms can refer to multiple levels of classificaion. For instance, "coblyn" can refer to the genus of soulkin, the blue-hued species of said genus, and even a monster within said species; classify with care.
