Pronounced "pook," this small, winged beast is believed to be the artificial combination (chimera) of a dragon and some kind of vermin. Also known as "wind wyverns." Puks are capable of comprehending speech, and are known to sometimes enter the service of the Mamool Ja Savages. They are swift fliers, adept at scouting out enemy territory and harrying opponents with wind-based attacks.

Found mostly in the Near East, these diminutive dragons are similar in size (and flight) to the colibri, but are much more dangerous. With lightning quick attacks and the ability to cast magic, these small dragons can be not only a nuisance, but can be deadly. With an otherworldly association with wind, puks are not only virtually immune to all wind based attacks, but they can actually heal themselves and generate TP based on, among other things, the day and/or weather. Adventurers be warned… this association can instantly change the course of battle when the weather or day changes in the midst of an otherwise routine battle.

Defeated Puks may leave behind their eggs and wings. While their eggs are a delicacy in the Near East, they have not been quite as popular with the chefs – and have been incorporated in only one dish. The wings too have a solitary use in the crafting of some elemental arrows. One final item, Chimera Blood, may be located on a defeated puk.
