Background[edit | edit source]
The Cait Sith originate from the West and own Butterfly Valley, one of the three large pathways to the World Tree. The Cait Sith's castle-like capital of Freelia is bordered by the Pooka territory on the north and the Sylph territory on the south.
The main difference between a Cait Sith and the other races is that the Cait Sith are blessed with cat-like ears and tails that, despite not being an appendage native to humans, send feeling to the brain by an unknown mechanism. These appendages are extremely sensitive and cause the Cait Sith to experience strong discomfort when the tail is grabbed roughly.
Another characteristic unique to the Cait Sith is their capability to tame monsters and use them in battle. They are also known to be one of the five lightweight races and are capable of using the Wall Run skill.
The Cait Sith are also known to be on good terms with the Sylphs, having provided tamed monsters to the Sylph capital. At one point, they made a treaty and joined forces to attack the World Tree. Though only one race could attain the promised unlimited flight of the Alfs, the two races promised to assist the other race in the next Grand Quest.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Flight: Similar to the other races, Cait Siths are capable of sprouting wings that allow them to fly.
Monster Taming: The Cait Sith are the only race capable of taming monsters and use them for battle. However, they are incapable of taming evil-god type monsters, as the taming rate is 0%.
Enhanced Speed: Cait Siths, like the Sylphs, are known to be incredibly agile. They are known to use their enhanced speed and agility to strengthen their attacks.
Wall Run: As one of the lightweight races, the Cait Siths are capable of using the skill Wall Run that, as the name suggests, allows them to temporarily run on walls. The normal limit is a distance of ten meters but those with an extremely high sprinting speed are known to be able to run for about thirty meters.
Enhanced Eyesight: Cait Siths are the ALO race with the best eyesight. Archers use this eyesight to help them shoot farther than other races. For example, Sinon can shoot farther than the bow's most accurate capacity with extreme precision using this eyesight.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The etymology of Cait Sith (also "Cat Sìth", or more modernly spelled, "Cat Sí") comes from Celtic Mythology. They were supposedly fairy creatures that resembled large black cats with a white spot on their chest. Some believed they were really witches that could transform into cats nine times.
