Humanoid in appearance, every Aern has a particular job, and while the job cannot be discerned by their name, the abilities, characteristics, and weapon can be a giveaway. Each Aern also has a special TP ability based on which weapon type it's using.

The Aerns exhibit some rather unique "abilities." Aerns occasionally have blue crystalline "wristbands" appear for up to 30 seconds before being removed. They will continue to apply and remove their wristbands even while asleep. When equipped, the Aern receives an increase in attack power and speed. Of additional interest is the fact that about 40% of the time, Aerns will Reraise to full HP and MP a few seconds after they are defeated - and some, like the Dark Knight Ix'aern, may Reraise multiple times before being defeated for good. Adventurers should be careful, as a reraised Aern will automatically attack the person/party that defeated it if within range. Aerns may drop items after conceding defeat including organs and Luminian tissue. If Aerns drop items after defeat they will not Reraise.
