A hulking humanoid creature approaches, covered in blue crystals. One arm, though far larger than the other, hangs at the creature’s side while it raises the other, moaning as its digits are coated in arcane fire.– Manly Man

Treasure Cie’th tear
A step above some of the weaker Cie’th are ghasts, who were noteworthy spellcasters during their time as a l’Cie, and they retain some of that prowess in their status as a Cie’th. They make generous use of their magic, likely to kill their enemies through fire before getting close enough to attack with their claws, though they are unafraid to lay some strikes down when within range.
Ghasts are 7 ½ feet tall and weigh 1200 pounds.
