These diminutive beastmen reside together with the civilized races of Vana'diel. Most Qiqirn make their home in a city located in the heart of the Aht Urhgan Empire's western half. They tend to have an easygoing and cheerful personality, but have difficulty speaking the common language due to their unusual vocal cords. Even so, it is not uncommon to hire a Qiqirn as a shop or guild assistant, thanks to their reliability and surprisingly quick wits. Some Qiqirn have even made use of their sharp sense of smell to become extremely wealthy in the production of fragrances. According to their oral tradition, the ancestors of the Qiqirn lived a nomadic life in the northern lands. Even today, remnants of the Qiqirn's ancient lifestyle may be seen in their unique customs, such as their sheep-led wagon homes, their leather clothing, and their habit of carrying their valuables with them at all times.

The Qiqirn will exhibit a number of seeming strange behaviors depending on their job. Qiqirn rangers will fight as normal for a short period of time when engaged, and then run away and seek the assistance of its peers, who will then attack. Qiqirn thieves will run away when you engage them in combat, dropping Qiqirn bombs behind them which explode on contact and cause fire damage. The bombs can be destroyed by magic or ranged attack. Certain Qiqirn black mages will run around and cast high level black magic until, after a while, they cast Warp. It is currently unknown if this is exclusive to Qiqirn Astrologers (found in the Arrapago Remnants) or whether it is a behaviour that will be repeated for other Qiqirn black mages.

Historical Background

In Native American mythology (specifically Inuit), the Qiqirn is a large, hairless dog spirit. It does have some hair, but only on its feet, ears, around its mouth, and on the tip of its tail. It is frightening, but it is also afraid of human beings. Merely mentioning its name would cause it to run away, thus, it is very flighty.
