The Piscodaemon is a Rank V Mark from Final Fantasy XII. It can be found in the Gate of Fire area of Giruvegan. Originally a Nu Mou named Ashkroft until he became a master of the dark arts and was sealed away by Anastasis. But by the time of Anastasis' death, the seal faded and Ashkroft emerged a demon.


Clan Primer


Hunt 28: The Black Sorcerer

Petitioner: Ivaness
Petitioner's Location: Mt Bur-Omisace

  • Saw bill posted for the hunting of the Piscodaemon (Rank V). The petitioner is Ivaness on the Temple Grounds on Mt Bur-Omisace.
  • Hunt accepted. Ivaness explains that the Piscodaemon is in fact his twin brother, whose lust for power transformed him into a dark, terrible being. He wants you to destroy him before more damage can be done. The Piscodaemon can be found making for the Gate of Fire in Giruvegan.
  • Piscodaemon defeated! Report to Ivaness on the Temple Grounds on Mt Bur-Omisace.
  • Hunt reported. Ivaness thanks you for striking down his brother lost to darkness.

Bestiary Entry

Genus: Rank V Mark
Classification: ???

"Being a Nu Mou Male, fallen into dark, sorcerous Ways, and so banished by the Gran Kiltias Anastasis as Punishment for his (now its) Desire for Ultimate Power in Giruvegan. Yet the Strength of the Wards placed upon it failed with the passing of Anastasis, and its Power returned. The Mark's Twin, living on Mt Bur-Omisace, petitioned the hunt for this creature."


Before fighting Piscodaemon, equip your party members with Black Masks. Some other monsters such as Malboros will join the fight if Piscodaemon is near them. Defeat the enemies around Piscodaemon before focusing on defeating him, since Malboro's Putrid Breath can be a serious disadvantage for you. Piscodaemon likes to cast high level Magicks, mostly Darkra, Darkga, etc. If you have Black Masks while fighting him, this will be less effective. If not, simply cast Shell/Shellga on your characters, Dispel him, and start attacking. Some of his attack inflicts status ailments, most notably Disable. Make sure you heal this status immediately, as having three characters Disabled can be very deadly. When his HP is left around 20%, he will begin a Physical Paling; blast him with high-level Magicks and eventually he will fall. A highly recommended thing to do is to Berserk Reddas - if he is buffed appropriately (take note: Haste and Bravery), he will literally rip apart the Piscodaemon. Simply stand back and let him do the rest.
