The Eldritch Gene is one of the dragon genes that appears in Breath of Fire III. It grants Ryu the ability to use powerful healing abilities. When it is combined with any of the elemental genes, it unlocks the most powerful abilities of the chosen element.

Attributes[]

A solo Eldritch Gene turns Ryu into a green Whelp with red eyes. However, it does not affect the color of the resulting dragon when used in combinations with other genes. When used alone, the Eldritch Gene alone is not very powerful, but it does grant access to the most effective healing abilities: Remedy, Restore, and Vitalize. As a result, it is helpful for Ryu to have a lot of AP in order to effectively utilize this dragon form. The Eldritch gene's stat modification is mediocre. It's true potential is realized when used in conjunction with any of the elemental genes.
