Avatar Information[edit]

Cait Sith

Mysterious beings born of the goddess Altana's tears and connected to the Cavernous Maws, Cait Siths have been watching the progress of the Crystal War. There are ten distinct Cait Siths, and a final composite Cait Sith consisting of the other Cait Siths combined into a single entity.

Historical Information[edit]

Cait Sith is a fairy creature from Celtic mythology said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. It was said to haunt the Scottish Highlands. Some common folklore suggested that the Cait Sith was not a fairy, but a transformed witch.

The name comes from the root words "Cait", which meant "Cat" in both Irish and Scottish Gaelic, and Sith, which is the Scottish word for faery folk or other otherworldly beings.[1]

Other Information[edit]

  • Cait Sith is also the name of a server.
  • Pronounced "cawt-shee"[2], but Cid in Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII- pronounces the first part of the name phonetically (i.e., like the English name "Kate"). Other than that one instance, Cait Sith's name is always avoided in voice-over dialogue in the Final Fantasy series, and has never been pronounced in full.
