Reasoning: The Bar-Ra spells are already found in Materia form and Carbuncle would be mostly used as a healer Esper, so going after passives stat increases will net you more benefit.

Lore:

An esper which resides in Carbuncle Grove in western Olderion. It has soft, jade fur, and sparkling red gems on its cheeks. Though much smaller than other espers, the power it holds within its tiny body is more than deserving of its classification. The “ruby light” it unleashes from the gems on its cheeks creates an invisible barrier said to be able to reflect magic.
