A fiend (魔物 [mamono] or 'apparition' in Japanese) is the general name for monsters in Final Fantasy X. In Spira, fiends are born from the souls of the dead who have not experienced a sending. They lose all purpose and gather pyreflies into a strong pyre-body that becomes some type of a fiend. Upon defeat, the body of a fiend disintegrates and becomes pyreflies again. The pyreflies than scatter into the world.
It bears noting that while the English name is different from the regular 'monster', all other Final Fantasies in Japanese use the same name for monsters.
