One of the five Terrestrial Avatars of Vana'diel, all of its Blood Pacts are tied into the element of Light.
This colorful creature appears as a teal green, three-tailed rodent with a ruby embedded in the center of its forehead.
It is also the first avatar that Summoners learn to summon.
Summoners learn to summon Carbuncle when they complete the quest, I Can Hear A Rainbow, which is also when players unlock the SMN job. Carbuncle Prime is able to be fought during the Waking the Beast quest.
