how do you get minions?

I see a lot of really cute little minions that run beside characters (like the really cute baby behemoth) and I was wondering where and how you aquire/buy them. I'm in Gridania if that matters.

Some you can purchase, some are real life preorder/purchase bonuses, some are awarded via quests, some via performing well in FATEs, etc etc.

Cait Sith is for people who pre-ordered, Baby Behemoth is from the Collector's Edition, Dalamud is for people who bought Before Meteor OST.
Others you can get from FATE, quests, gathering, crafting, buy from NPC, Veteran Rewards, etc.

Not sure what the NPC is called in Gridania, but she's near the Aethyrte Crystal, near a Florist I think.
Has 3 minions at around 2400 Gil each.

Awesome thanks! Can you also buy the baby behemoth or no? That's the one I really want.

Not unless you have the CE, whether digital, physical, got the CE upgrade, or got them free for having bought 1.0 CE.

Well that sucks. Oh well, its a gift for the people that paid more than I did, so I can't complain. Are the other ones that you can get in game cool/cute/whatever? Or are they just lame and not worth the gil?

The baby behemoth is adorable, and it almost makes me wish I had gotten the CE. But then I remember that the CE was $20 more than the regular game. I don't know if the baby behemoth is $20 worth of cute.
