The Flying Fish is a mass conglomerate of Erda first encountered in Chu Chu Island after the player falls from the Damp Falls and onto the fish. They then take the player down the Arcane River, passing Lachelein and Arcana, where they end up in the Path to the Coral Forest. The Flying Fish starts talking to the player, much to their surprise, because there is a very strong Erda source. The forest is then transformed into a memory of the kingdom of Kritias due to a startled Tana altering the nearby Erda flow. The Flying Fish was affected and is transformed into Jean, and relives the life of Jean when the kingdom was still alive. Afterwards, the Flying Fish, as Jean, stays in Morass where they inform the player about suspiciouslookingpeople. In Tenebris, the Flying Fish returns in his fish form bringing the player to the Black Mage's temple, before disappearing due to Erda disruption. After the Erda is returned, the Flying Fish brings the player out of the Erda Flow, where they had a chat with the White Mage, back on board the Alliance ship.
