Large soulflayer.jpg
It is said that when a Blue Mage is no longer able to control the beast within as a side effect of using Blue Magic, they lose the ability to maintain their mortal form and are transformed into Soulflayers (among other monsters). Only highly trained and experienced Soulflayers are known to exist, leading some to believe that the theory is true. Soulflayers deserve their ungodly name.

Found naturally in the Near East regions of Arrapago Reef and Caedarva Mire, these sentient beings can be extremely difficult to defeat. Those that do can walk away with the Soulflayer's robe, staff, or even its tentacle. The robe and staff are unusable by all but the Soulflayer themselves, but are valuable due to their being made of Imperial Silk Cloth and Bloodwood Lumber, respectively – each of which can be difficult to obtain. The tentacle appears to contain certain regenerative powers, since with some more common materials it can be made into Hi-Ether.
