|What it looks like:||A golden-tinted Pirabia Catfish.|
|Location (EO2)||Cortica River Upstream|
The Golden Catfish is a legendary Pirabia Catfish. After giving the Servant's Ring to the Pirabia Catfish in front of the Temple it will have turned pure gold and become this legendary creature. Jean-Eric remarks that it would be the kind of fish GG would be.
Normally, whenever players return, this legendary creature will still be there.
"This golden hue is not a mutation or camouflage, it is real gold! To be precise, there is a fine layer of gold dust covering this fish's entire body. Gold dust is known to lie on the riverbed of the Amazon and other rivers in the region.
This fine powder is eaten by micro-organisms and insects and builds up inside the bodies of other animals as it goes up through the food chain.
The golden catfish simply exudes the gold through its skin."
The Piraiba Catfish occupies a region in the bowl-shaped area under the Spirit Falls at B-3NW. Once the Golden Catfish has been unlocked it is occasionally replaced with it.
It swims around in a leisurely fashion, on the bowl-shaped entrance of the Twilight Temple
The Cortica Gold Rush
Panning for gold dust in the Cortica River region became so popular at one time that it was called the Cortica Gold Rush.
There was a rumour in the mining community at the time that a golden fish lived in the river. The rumour grew until every miner turned his hand to fishing in the hope of catching this golden fish. No one was lucky enough to catch it, and the story was eventually forgotten.
This might just be the fish they were all searching for.
- At times, the Golden Catfish will be replaced by the normal catfish after the events
of above occured, but it's not known when.
