A Gria with no specific Job.
"Dragonic wings and tail adorn this peculiar female race. Able to fly for short distances, they move without hindrance across the battlefield. Gria prefer a weapon's cold steel to the subtle arts of magick, eagerly taking to the front lines."
—Online Description

The Gria (グリア, Guria) are a dragon-like race from Ivalice, first introduced in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. Since they are only seen in Jylland, it can be assumed they are native to this region.


The Gria are a small-bodied draconic race, complete with dragon wings, tail, and horns. The Gria are more proficient in physical attacks rather than magick in combat. Their ability to fly seems to allow them to ignore the Jump stat, giving them an advantage in areas with high terrain, and allowing them to easily get behind units, as they can simply fly over them rather than try to walk around them. And unlike units equipped with Faerie Shoes, which use teleportation to ignore the Jump stat in a similar fashion, Gria are immune to falling damage; If they are knocked off a high cliff, the Gria will use their wings to slow the descent.

It is never made clear if the Gria are entirely female, or if they have male members. The game only features female members, so only assumptions can be made. This is not unusual if they have both genders, as the all of the playable Humes, save for a few important characters, are male. Note that the Gria are not to be mistaken with the Aegyl.



Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

"Wings of a dragon and a powerful tail distinguish this unique race. Outwardly small, some might even say cute, grias make vicious foes in battle. They have a fierce, competitive spirit."
—In-Game Description

They have four known Jobs, the Ravager, Hunter, Geomancer, and Raptor. Also, due to their wings, they can fly at will, ignoring terrain, so equiping a Gria with Faerie Boots or Galmia Shoes is careless. Equipped with Ninja Tabi, they can become a very mobile force on the battlefield. This race's class range is fairly well rounded, being comprised of two Warrior-like Jobs, one long range Job, and one magic Job. However, their effectiveness is reduced by the fact that the player usually finds them last and before Seeq units.

Grias can be obtained in these locations during Emberleaf or Plumfrost:
