Background Information

A wide-brimmed, pointed mage's hat known as the favored headdress of the Star Sibyl Shanlili, preeminent sorceress and founding mother of the Crystal Era. "Moonseer" -as she lovingly referred to the cap- is adorned with a crescent moon of brass, befitting its mistress's zeal for astronomy. The slight upward curl of the brim was introduced so as not to impair the wearer's field of vision when gazing at the heavens. In the present age, its primary use is ceremonial, as an honor bestowed upon only the most accomplished students of magic on their graduation day.

Historical Background

Selenian likely comes from the Greek word selene meaning "Moon".

This item's design comes from the hat worn by the Magus job in its battle sprite in Final Fantasy III.
