Hisorical Background

According to H.P. Lovecraft's book The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, The ghasts are a race of fearsome humanoids. They are much larger than a man and have a vaguely human face, albeit missing a nose. Their skin is rough and knotty. Their senses are unusually acute; they can see in the dark and have a strong sense of smell. They hop about on a pair of hooved, kangaroo-like legs, and are swift, strong, and agile. Ghasts prefer to dwell in complete darkness and have no tolerance for natural light — sunlight will kill them instantly. Otherwise, the dim, pale glow of the underworld seems to cause them little harm.

The term is also used to a form of undead similar to Ghouls in Dungeons and Dragons. FFXI's Ghasts most likely come from here.
