Antican
A race of beastmen that resemble ants. They lived underground, beneath the Galka settlements in Altepa Desert. Being awakened by accident, they drove the Galka out of their homes and forced them to flee to Bastok through Korroloka Tunnel.

Expand Images

Ark Angels
Also known as the Crystal Warriors. They were created by Promathia to represent the central vice of each of the five races - the arrogance of the Elvaan, the apathy of the Humes, the envy of the Mithra, the cowardice of the Tarutaru, the rage of the Galka. Kam'lanaut and Eald'narche summoned them to fight for them while they enacted their plan to resurrect the Shadow Lord and open the Gates of Paradise. They were eventually defeated by Lion, Zeid and Aldo.

Expand Images

Armathrwn Society
An ancient society of Kuluu. Its members are Kareh'ayollio, Eshan'tarl, Nag'molada, and Mammets. This secret society carries out the will of the duchy.

Expand Images

Aurastery
(combination of "aural"="related to sound" and "ministry") One of the 5 Tarutaru ministries of magic. Coordinates the magic education of the Tarutaru. Current minister: Sedal-Godjal. Predecessor: Koru-Moru.

Automaton
Mechanical puppets developed by the alchemists of Aht Uhrgan. Highly customizable and controllable from a distance, they are somewhat of an equivalent to Cardians in Windurst. However, as opposed to Cardians, Automatons were initially created for entertainment purposes, even though professional Puppetmasters have since adapted them for combat as well. Empress Jubleel, Nashmeira's mother, has introduced the concept of programming to give Automatons behavioural patterns, thus allowing them to be more independent: a Puppetmaster controlling such an Automaton would no longer need to dictate their every move.

Expand Images

Avatar
Summonable gods who protect different aspects of Vana'diel. There are five Terrestrial Avatars: Diabolos, Phoenix, Fenrir, Carbuncle, Bahamut. In addition, there are six Celestial Avatars representing the six basic elements: Shiva, Ifrit, Leviathan, Ramuh, Titan, Garuda. All but Phoenix and Bahamut can be summoned. The Terrestrial Avatars participate in a fierce battle to protect Vana'diel from the spread of the Emptiness in the Chains of Promathia storyline.

Cardian
Dolls brought to life by the strange fruit of the trees cultivated within Heavens Tower. They became grunts for work and war, and held loyalty only to Zonpa-Zippa. Eventually, they grew out of control, so Zonpa-Zippa made the Ace Cardians to manage them.

Expand Images

Elvaan
The third of the five races of Vana'diel. They have long flattened pointed ears, but are otherwise human-looking. They started as a rather insignificant race, but soon grew to a powerful empire, and formed the Kingdom of San d'Oria on the Quon continent. Elvaan strictly adhere to their code of conduct and their belief in the Dawn Goddess Altana. Their kingdom soon grew to an empire as they took over many lands, until they tried to seize Bastok and Windurst, the homes of the other four races. This caused a great war between the three kingdoms that raged on with bloodbaths on both sides. The San d'Orians fell to Bastok when firearms were used against them. They then fell into civil war for the throne. Today they are a shadow of their former glory.

Expand Images

Dawn Maidens
Women of the Zilart with exceptional skill in telepathy and magic were chosen to be Dawn Maidens. They were said to be in direct service to Altana. They soon developed a distaste for the way the Zilart treated the Kuluu and conspired with them to sabotage the Zilart's experiment to open the gates to paradise. They were killed in the resulting Meltdown, but were blessed with "afterlife" to watch over future incarnations of the gatekeeper.

Expand Images

Galka
The first of the five races of Vana'diel. As the first created, they still have beastlike traits in their appearance. Galka have a large, powerful body, and brute strength, with a hairy ape like face. There are no female Galka, and thus, they do not reproduce. When Galka reach the last days of life, they return to their homeland in Altepa Desert in order to be reborn as children. This is called the Journey of Rebirth. However, once reborn, they retain no memories of their past. The Galka were the first race to create a peaceful civilization. When they were forced from their homes by the Antica they landed on what would eventually be the town of Bastok. During the San d'Orian imperialism, they formed an alliance with the Humes, built the city of Bastok, and fought back the San d'Orians. As time progressed, the Galka got poorer in the age of technology. They were seen as inferior by the Humes, and a deep resentment has thus developed between the 2 races.

Expand Images

Gatekeeper
Leader of the Dawn Maidens.

Gigas
A secondary race of beastmen who live in the far north islands. They allied with the Kindred and were key players in the initial stages of the Crystal War. They also played a role in the pre-emptive strike on Jeuno, but Kam'lanaut and his armies pushed them back and they retreated to Delkfutt's tower.

Expand Images

Goblin
A highly intelligent race of beastmen. Some of them have settled in Jeuno and cohabit with the civilized races. They are known for their advanced knowledge of smithing and alchemy.

Expand Images

Hume
The last of the five races of Vana'diel. Humes are human equivalents. They orginated on the southern portion of Quon. With their lack of strong skill in anything, they were mostly ignored by rest of world, until they formed an alliance with Galka during the invasion of San d'Oria and formed Bastok. They eventually grew stronger and more powerful in the age of technology, while Galka didn't. This started to cause resentment on both sides.

Expand Images

Immortals
The name given to the elite Blue Mage corps in the service of the Empire of Aht Uhrgan. Blue Mages were first introduced to Aht Uhrgan at the behest of Emperor Balrahn. They are artificially created by infusing a living being with beastman or monster blood, or by transplanting some monster or beastman tissue to them. This gives them a feral quality and allows them to harness the powers of monsters. However, every Blue Mage runs the risk of being overcome by the beastly powers within them. When that happens, they usually transform into Soulflayers. The Immortals are currently led by Raubahn.

Imp
A small species of demon native to Aht Uhrgan. They served as messengers in the Shadow Lord's army during the Crystal War. Their exceptionally quick reflexes allow them to be able to see through any disguise. Thus, as they are aggressive on sight, the Invisible spell is ineffective against them.

Expand Images

Kindred
A race of beastmen who developed in the north. The people nicknamed them "demons". They are stronger than either the Orcs, Quadav, or Yagudo, and solely serve the Shadow Lord.

Expand Images

Kuluu
A race of people biologically descended from the Zilart with no natural magic or telepathic powers. They received their magic from avatars, but were condemned by the Zilart as freaks and forced into slavery through amulets created by the Zilart king. These amulets sent the thoughts of the wearer to the "Eye of Altana" for monitoring. As a consequence of the magic explosion known as the Meltdown, most of the Kuluu were turned into Tonberries.

Lamia
An artificial race of beastmen resembling snake-like women. Originally a type of biological weapon (or chimera) developed by the alchemists of Aht Uhrgan, which they used to eliminate Ephramadian survivors, some rogue Lamiae have since made their home around Arrapago Reef. They have the ability to bewitch fallen warriors, thus assembling an undead army for themselves. They may attack Aht Uhrgan in the form of the Undead Swarm, the least organized, but, arguably the most dangerous of the beastman forces. Lamiae are led by Medusa and are the only beastman race capable of becoming a Corsair.

Expand Images

FF11 in-game

Mamool Ja
One of the main hostile beastman races in Aht Uhrgan, resembling bipedal chameleons in appearance. They are violent, highly organized and skilled in both melee combat and magic. Their stronghold is situated in the jungle city of Mamook, and they are led by a council of 4 overlords, representing the 4 classes of their society, presided by the Autarch Gulool Ja Ja. Mamool Ja are the only beastman race capable of becoming a Blue Mage.

Expand Images

Manustery
(combination of "manual" and "ministry") One of the 5 Tarutaru ministries of magic. Responsible for the construction of Cardians. Current minister: Apururu. Predecessor: Zonpa-Zippa.

Merrow
A close relation to the Lamia, they resemble mermaids.

Expand Images

Mithra
The second of the five races of Vana'diel, also bearing beastlike traits, much like Galka. They are lithe humanoids with cat ears and tail, but, unlike Galka, have different genders. Only females are ever seen outside of their territory. Mithra men stay at home to raise children. Women created the political and warrior classes. A large group of Mithra has emigrated from their home continent of Olzhyria (situated in the south of Vana'diel) and settled partly on the island of Elshimo (creating the town of Kazham), and partly in Mindartia, alongside the Tarutaru. The two tribes are hostile to each other, and see themselves as exiles from their homeland.

Expand Images

Moblin
Cousins of Goblins. They live underground, in the capital city of Movalpolos, and worship Promathia.

Expand Images

Optistery
(combination of "optical" and "ministry") One of the 5 Tarutaru ministries of magic. Studies ancient magic lore and texts, and maintains a library. Current minister: Tosuka-Porika. Predecessor: Karaha-Baruha.

Orastery
(combination of "oral" and "ministry") One of the 5 Tarutaru ministries of magic. Responsible for the practical training of War Warlocks after they leave the Aurastery school. Current minister: Ajido-Marujido. Predecessor: Shantotto.

Orc
One of the primary races of beastmen. Known for being the most bloodthirsty. Their home is in the forests of northern Quon continent, with strongholds in Davoi (formerly Elvaan village of La Vaule) and Ghelsba. They primarily attacked San d'Oria during the Crystal War.

Expand Images

Papsque
Religious leader of Elvaan. Similar to a pope.

Qiqirn
A race of rat-like beastmen. Cunning and quick-witted, as well as bearing an inordinate love for all things shiny (especially money), they mingle quite well with the civilized races. A good number of them lives in Aht Uhrgan, but their hometown is Nashmau, situated in the dank, swampy environment of Caedarva Mire, in the region that was once spanned by Ephramad. The Qiqirn's attraction to money often leads them to become shopkeepers or item appraisers.

Expand Images

Quadav
One of the primary races of beastmen. Turtle-like in appearance, they lived in the caverns which became the Palborough Mines. Driven from their homes by the Humes in the course of their development, they therefore primarily attacked Bastok during the Crystal War. They still have a stronghold in the Palborough Mines, as well as in Beadeaux.

Expand Images

Rhinostery
(combination of "rhinal"="related to smell" and "ministry") One of the 5 Tarutaru ministries of magic. Responsible for magical research, notably on plants. Current minister: Rukususu. Predecessor: Iru-Kuiru.

Sahagin
A secondary race of beastmen, fish-like. They live in the south eastern islands. The Shadow Lord sought them for help, but few bothered.

Expand Images

Serpent Generals
The elite of the Aht Uhrgan army, these 5 generals each represent an element (plus the sky as the 5th and highest rank) and are the foremost defenders of the city during beastmen attacks. As such, they may also be taken prisoner during Besieged, in which case, it is up to adventurers to rescue them from beastmen strongholds. Oddly enough, the generals represent each civilized race, except the Tarutaru.

Soulflayer
The most common form into which a Blue Mage who can no longer control his or her powers may turn. Soulflayers resemble humanoid squid or octopi and are highly skilled in magic. They are aggressive to sound, and their high attunement to magical forces makes the Sneak spell ineffective.

Expand Images

Star Sibyl
The leader of the Tarutaru. The first Star Sibyl was so titled when she found the Full Moon Fountain of the ancient Kuluu which gave the Tarutaru proficiency in magic. She was also given the Book of the Gods, and had a vision of the prosperous future of the life of the Tarutaru. She united the Tarutaru and was succeeded by a long line of Star Sibyls. The Full Moon Fountain has been used ever since as a way to predict the future of Windurst. The current Star Sibyl is in a difficult position. During the Crystal War, Karaha-Baruha, Windurst's hero, attempted to summon the full power of Fenrir, the guardian of the Full Moon Fountain. This saved Windurst, but at a great cost. The Full Moon Fountain was dimmed, losing its ability to predict the future, leaving the Star Sibyl with no guidance to provide to her fellow citizens. She has been doing her best to provide false prophecies ever since, in the hopes that something might someday restore the power of the Fountain. This is eventually achieved in the Windurst Mission Storyline.

Expand Images

Talekeeper of the Galka
The Talekeeper carries all the past memories of the Galka with him, rather than them having a written history. This makes him a sort of leader among the race. However, his knowledge is not infinite, he only retains around 200 years of past history. Due to this burden, no Talekeeper has never lived long enough to undergo the Journey of Rebirth. The gift of the Talekeeper seems to be randomly bestowed on a Galka upon reincarnation.

Tarutaru
The third of the five races of Vana'diel. Tarutaru are small child-like, and resemble chipmunks. They are not strong, but are highly intelligent. Weary from fear of the beastmen, they wandered the world in search of peace, and settled on Windurst. They formed an alliance with the Mithra when they came upon their land and have been a powerful force ever since. They discovered magic, which then spread across the land to all others, including the beastmen.

Expand Images

Tenshodo
A vast network of pirates based in Norg, with a large commercial branch in Jeuno. They came to prominence during the Crystal War by supplying materials from the Far East.

Tonberry
These beastmen were formerly Kuluu, transformed by the Meltdown. Like the Sahagin, they were sought for help by the Shadow Lord after the battle of Tavnazia, but few did.

Expand Images

Troll
A race of large, hulking, brown-skinned beastmen, and one of the main opponents to the Empire of Aht Uhrgan. Trolls used to serve as mercenaries for the Gigas, as well as for the Mithran armies of Olzhirya and Aht Uhrgan itself. They also maintain a close relationship with Moblins, which allows them to benefit from the latter's research in alchemy. Their stronghold is situated in the underground city of Halvung, in the fiery entrails of Mount Zhayolm. They are led by chieftain Gurfurlur the Menacing. Trolls are the only beastman race capable of becoming a Puppetmaster.

Expand Images

Yagudo
One of the primary races of beastmen. They are bird-like in appearance and highly intelligent. Their society is a theocracy, based on a fanatical religious doctrine, and the land they share with the Tarutaru has made them enemies, especially during the Crystal War. They have strongholds in Giddeus and Castle Oztroja. In the Windurst Mission Storyline, they demand control of the Horutoto Ruins after Ajido-Marujido activates them in his feud with the rogue Cardians, since this activation goes against the treaty signed after the war.

Expand Images

Zilart
The first civilized race on Vana'diel, which pre-existed the five main ones. The Zilart quickly gained great magic skill and telepathy, and used these powers to control the Kuluu, which they considered as degenerates. Their quest to open the Gates of Paradise led to their destruction.






Characters

Abqubah
Naja's hapless sidekick. Bullied and invariably made to do all the dirty work, he is, nevertheless, unquestionably obedient. He's in charge of briefing adventurers about the Treasures of Aht Uhrgan missions and scheduling rank evaluations for Assault missions.

Expand Images

Ace Cardians
These Cardians were created to manage other Cardians with basic wrong/right logic. There are only four of them. Under Karaha-Baruha's guidance, they built the super strong cardian - Joker. When he died during the Crystal War, they lost their sense of right/wrong morality, and everything began to seem gray. Unknown to the Tarutaru, the Ace Cardians kidnapped Zonpa-Zippa, and were lost during the Crystal War. They later reappeared to steal Ajido-Marujido's work. Ajido-Marujido discovered that they kidnapped Zonpa-Zippa to prevent him from revealing their plan to reactivate Joker. What they didn't realize was that Karaha-Baruha had bound his life force to Joker, so in order to resurrect Joker, they would have to resurrect Karaha-Baruha.

Acheufagais D'Oraguille
The ninth king of San d'Oria. He ruled from 558-567. He received the crown after he personally assassinated his stepbrother, who had more claim to the throne than he did. Called "The War King" for his ferocity in battle, he was loved by warriors, but hated by the aristocracy. He died on the throne.

Expand Images

Ajido-Marujido
The current Minister of the Orastery of Windurst, and brother to Apururu, the Minister of the Manustery. Their father, Zonpa-Zippa, former Minister of the Manustery, was captured by the Ace Cardians to prevent him from interfering in their plans to revive Joker. Ajido-Marujido plays an important part in the Windurst Mission Storyline, after realizing that the Book of the Gods has lost its powers (which is a bad omen). He attempts to unravel the Cardians' plot and discover the truth behind Karaha-Baruha's research. He is thrown in jail for souring relations with the Yagudo in his search for answers, but escapes with the help of Apururu and Shantotto. He eventually succeeds in putting Karaha-Baruha's soul to rest and restoring Fenrir's spirit to the Full Moon Fountain with the help of the Star Sibyl, thus proving that Windurst has the power to overcome its destiny and shape its own history.

Expand Images

Aldo
The hume leader of the Tenshodo, helping to sneak illegal weapons from the Far East to Bastok and Jeuno. He was an escapee from Tavnazia during the Crystal War as a child. (He's the guy we see in the opening movie.) He is one of the three heroes of the Rise of the Zilart storyline (alongside Lion and Zeid). His sister, Verena, also plays a major role, as she is kidnapped to open the doors of the floating city, Tu'lia. He also lends a helping hand in the Chains of Promathia storyline.

Expand Images

Alexander
A maleficent, ancient deity. Alexander's spirit needs a body to incarnate itself. This body bears the appearance of a mechanical giant. His first incarnation and confrontation with Odin led to the destruction of the Alzadaal civilization, which existed 900 years before Aht Uhrgan. Unable to salvage the remains of the first construct, Razfahd works with Ghatsad in order to create a gigantic Automaton, as a new, more powerful body for Alexander to inhabit. Razfahd believes that this will let him control Alexander, defeat Aht Uhrgan's enemies and bring about an age of prosperity. However, Alexander will not let himself be controlled and attempts to kill anyone who doesn't show proper deference to him. He notably kills Nashmeira. Outraged by this, Luzaf allows Odin to take control of him in order to face Alexander. Since the confrontation of the two deities would lead to Ragnarok—essentially, the destruction of the world—Razfahd realizes his mistake and sacrifices himself, somehow managing to stop Alexander.

Expand Images

Alphollon Tavnazia
A royal vassal of San d'Oria. He was given the task of constructing a city on a newly discovered peninsula so the San d'Orians could push south. This was Tavnazia. He was the keeper of a tablet discovered underground, that turned out to be the "Lay of the Immortals".

Alois, Senator
An embezzling senator of Bastok. Gumbah reveals his corruption which results in his removal from office, and Gumbah's recognition as the Talekeeper of the Galka.

Expand Images

Altana
The Dawn Goddess, worshipped by all civilized races of Vana'diel, even though San d'Oria and Tavnazia seem to be the two most pious nations of the lot. Altana is compassionate and merciful, and counterbalances Promathia's drive to destruction by the power of love. Originally, she created the Zilart as the only race on Vana'diel, but they attempted to open the Gates of Paradise, which resulted in their destruction. In her sorrow, Altana shed tears upon Vana'diel, five of which created the five civilized races. She also split the Mothercrystal into five shards, in an attempt to stall the spread of the Emptiness. At the end of the Chains of Promathia storyline, she effectively reiterates her act of creation by shedding a tear of blessing for each of the protagonists of the story, who, coincidentally, happen to be representatives of each of the five races.

Amnaf
A female Immortal. Unquestionably loyal to Raubahn, for whom it is hinted that she has feelings, she tries to halt progress towards Alexander when his whereabouts are finally discovered. However, she succumbs to the danger that all Blue Mages face: overcome by the monster blood within her, she transforms into a Soulflayer and is defeated. Raubahn himself rips her heart out of her chest as she lies wounded, proclaiming that her part in the story is over.

Expand Images

Aphmau
The apparently timid court Puppetmaster of Aht Uhrgan, who is actually the Empress Nashmeira. Thanks to her mother's discoveries in Automaton technology, Aphmau is able to control two Automatons at once, Mnejing and Ovjang, even though only Ovjang is actually hers. Aphmau is a necessary cover, which has been devised in order to protect Nashmeira, as she is still very young. When she hears the rumours about the Black Coffin, her curiosity gets the better of her, and she decides to get to the bottom of the business on her own. Luzaf kidnaps Ovjang, intent on studying its mechanisms in case they could be useful to his ends, but Aphmau follows suit and ends up being a ‘voluntary' captive on the Black Coffin. The encounter gives her new perspectives on both her duties as a ruler and the painful history of her motherland. Unlikely feelings develop between her and Luzaf, and, together, they endeavour to challenge the plans of her brother, Razfahd, as well as Luzaf's pact with Odin. Killed by Alexander during the battle, Aphmau is brought back to life by Luzaf, who offers his own life to Odin in exchange. This experience allows her to find the courage to be the Empress that Aht Uhrgan needs, and she is formally re-crowned in celebration of Alexander's defeat.

Expand Images

Apururu
Sister of Ajido-Marujido, head of the Manustery. She enlisted the help of Shantotto after her brother was captured. Using the rings of the five ministers to form a gauntlet, she succeeded in freeing her brother from the Horutoto Ruins, but he was overwhelmed by the power of the Book of the Gods, and fell unconscious.

Expand Images

Atarefaunet
A famous thief, who is pursued by the bounty hunter Goldmane (later revealed to be Vukki-Chebukki). He was involved in various deals with Count Teulomme, the man who dispossessed the Mistalle family of its lands. When Atarefaunet was captured by Goldmane, Teulomme attempted to assassinate him in order to remove all trace of his own shady dealings with him. Atarefaunet escaped, and took on the identity of Louverance M Mistalle in order to exact his revenge. He gets involved in the Chains of Promathia storyline, but when his imposture is finally revealed, he fights the real Louverance in a duel, fakes his own death, and escapes under the guise of a San d'Orian priest. He is also involved in the sidequest for the Thief's artifact armour

Expand Images

Ayame
A hume samurai, one of the Mythril Musketeers. Daughter of Ensetsu. She competes with Iron Eater and Naji to be leader. When she is sent to Norg to negotiate trade, it is revealed that Gilgamesh was her teacher when she decided to become a samurai. Her role is representative of the Republic in negotiations.

Expand Images

Bahamut
Also known as the Wyrmking and Lord of the Skies. Promathia awoke him to attack the Zilart when they opened the Gates of Paradise. He awoke the other avatars and they fought a gigantic battle in sky, during which the Dawn Maidens and Kuluu enacted their plan to sabotage the magic reactor. After the magic explosion, he was still at large, terrorizing the land. A young boy (later revealed to be Nag'molada) made a mysterious deal with him, and he left. He awakens again in the Chains of Promathia storyline, sensing the advent of the Keeper of the Apocalypse. His plan is to destroy Vana'diel so that if Promathia is resurrected, there will be no life left for him to envelop. (See also Summon:Bahamut)

Expand Images

Bakgodek, Overlord
Orc leader who appears in the Monastic Cavern in Davoi, the base of the Orcs.

Expand Images

Balrahn
A former emperor of Aht Uhrgan. Considered a great hero, he is also responsible for the creation of Blue Mages, as a response to the assassination of his son by a chimera—an artificial monster created by the Aht Uhrgan alchemists. He ordered them to look for a solution, and they decided to infuse the best representatives of the guard with monster blood in order to enhance their powers and transform them into an elite force. Balrahn is also famous for his love of weaponry, of which he collected numerous specimens. His spirit must be defeated to upgrade Mythic Weapons. A ring named after Balrahn is also considered as an Imperial heirloom.

Expand Images

Chumimi
Tarutaru gardener of the star trees. Involved in the side quest for the Black Mage's artifact armor.

Expand Images

Cid
An engineering genius (like all Cid's before him), and figured to be the smartest man in the world. He originally made his fortune from studying ancient Zilart technology and using it in his inventions. When he found a mysterious crystal in the Northlands, he ordered the ill-fated Northland expedition there to see if there was more. This piece actually turned out to be a chunk of the Star of Tavnazia. Using the knowledge he gained from his studies, he developed a crystal engine that would eventually power airships. During their development, he worked with figures in hooded robes that may have been Zilart. The Archduke of Jeuno commissioned him to build a fleet of airships to be used in the Crystal War, but only one was ever publicly used or needed.

Expand Images

Claidie D'Oraguille
Daughter and youngest child of King Destin of San d'Oria. In the San d'Oria Mission storyline, she disguises herself as an adventurer in golden armor called Eidialc (her name spelled backwards) to try to protect Rochefogne, her late mother's brother, when he is ambushed by assassins at Batallia Downs. Unbeknownst to her, the assassins were hired by her brothers, Pieuje and Trion, who were anxious to keep Rochefogne silenced, as he accused San d'Oria of letting Tavnazia be destroyed.

Expand Images

Cornelia
A Hume who was chosen for the Northland expedition. A Yagudo killed her brother. She was a member of the Mythril Musketeers and then became a monk. One of her fellow Musketeers was Raogrimm, the Talekeeper of the Galka. Her affection for him irked the passions of Ulrich, a fellow Mythril Musketeer. His jealousy led him to attempt to assassinate Raogrimm during the expedition. When he attempted to stab Raogrimm, Cornelia jumped in front of his blade and died.

Expand Images

Cornelia (II)
Daughter of Karst. She was named after the ill-fated Cornelia who went on the Northland expedition. In the Chains of Promathia storyline, she helps Prishe when she first arrives in Bastok and brings her to Cid. She is very good at improving relationships with the Galka, since she has the ability to see through their eyes.

Expand Images

Curilla, General
Leader of the San d'Orian Temple Knights, who are tasked to maintain peace within the kingdom. A famed and skilled swordswoman, she was Prince Trion's sparring partner, until an unfortunate accident. Too eager to win against him during a jousting tournament, she lost an eye. She now wears a lock of hair over her eye out of shame, and considers herself disfigured, even though there are signs that she is not indifferent to Trion. She is involved in the side quest for the Red Mage's artifact armor.

Expand Images

Cyranuce M Cutauleon
Close friend of Rahal's. He was the first man to become a dragoon after Erpalacion's disappearance. However, his own dragoon bore an Unholy Crest. This has twisted his soul, and he attempts to become a dragon himself by absorbing the lifeforce of as many wyverns as he can. Defeating him is part of the quest to unlock the Dragoon job.

Expand Images

Destin D'Oraguille
Current king of San d'Oria, he has witnessed his country's decline since the end of the Crystal War. His wife, the late Queen Leaute, was a Tavnazian princess, and bore him three children: Princes Trion and Pieuje, and Princess Claidie. Manipulated by Papsque Shamonde in his quest to retrieve Lightbringer in order to determine the true heir to the throne and to restore San d'Oria to its former glory, he eventually realizes that the sword's power is too great to be used by just any mortal.

Expand Images

Diabolos
Terrestrial avatar, keeper of dreams and creator of the dreamworld Dynamis. He refuses to join Tenzen when asked to help defeat Promathia. Instead, Diabolos is attempting to draw the whole of mankind within Dynamis, where they can dream forever, escaping reality, but also inevitable destruction at the hands of either Promathia or Bahamut. He claims that the curse of Promathia upon mankind is what leads them to try to open the Gates of Paradise. (See also Summon:Diabolos)

Expand Images

Doggvdegg
A gigantic orc. Before the start of the Crystal War, he slew King Grantieul d'Oraguille. After a clash between his troupe, the Bloodwing Horde, and the Kindred, he was incarcerated in Castle Zvahl.

He reportedly defeated San d'Orian General Phillieulais at Xarcabard, after having laid siege to San d'Oria itself for three weeks.

Expand Images

Du'Dha the Ever-Young
Famous king of the Quadav, who ruled for an exceptionally long time, from the dawn of the Age of Magic in 250 and well into the Age of Power, until around 524. Known for his fragile health and his leisurely pursuits, he was considered as an unlikely candidate to the throne, despite his royal blood. However, he also proved to be a talented fortune teller, and was thus appointed as advisor, then successor to the king. During his reign, Du'Dha established friendly relations with the Elvaan, notably with Lanfeaur d'Oraguille, who would go on to become the first king of San d'Oria. He was also responsible for the construction of Beadeaux.

Expand Images

Eald'Narche [VILLAIN]
One of the two prominent Zilart Princes. He is revealed to be the older brother of Kam'lanaut, despite appearances. Experiments involving exposure to a Mother Crystal stopped him from aging and sealed him into his current form. Upon the destruction of the Zilart, he and his brother slept frozen in the Tower of Delkfutt's reaction chamber, until many years later, Raogrimm reactivated the crystals. He turns out to be the real mastermind behind the present day plan to open the Gates of Paradise, including starting the Crystal War from behind the throne of the Shadow Lord, and also using his ability to read minds. When he is defeated by Zeid in Tu'lia, he attempts to recreate the Meltdown, a catastrophe that wiped out the Zilart long ago. Yve'noile appears to him before his death and tells him that the Gates of Paradise cannot be opened by Vana'diel's destruction.

Elizabeth
Iruki-Waraki's temperamental Automaton. She thinks that he doesn't interact with her enough during performances (which is actually a display of trust on his behalf), and therefore decides to leave him. Her theft by Yafahb provides her with the perfect opportunity to do so.

Emeline
Sister of Aldo, leader of the Tenshodo (the boy from the opening video). She was lost during the battle of Tavnazia and presumed dead. She used to be friends with Ulmia when they were children, as they both sang in the Tavnazian choir. Only she knows the 5th verse of "Lay of the Immortals", but her memory is shoddy, and she believes her name is Mathilde. She now lives in Selbina and has a son.

Erpalacion, General
The last dragoon, he was the general of the Royal Knights in the time of King Ranperre. He helped in the reunification of the kingdom, and it was widely affirmed that his skill as a dragoon was unmatched. However, he discovered that his wyvern bore an Unholy Crest, which, due to the spiritual bond that exists between dragoon and wyvern, would eventually end up corrupting his soul. He left the army, simulating a disappearance, and travelled to distant lands, so that the taint would clear from his soul with time and meditation. Now a wandering spirit, he is involved in the sidequest for the Dragoon's artifact armour.

Esha'ntarl
The only woman to ever break free of the Chains of Promathia, which has conferred her immortality. Fenrir has foretold that her duty (which he considers a curse) would be to watch over mankind until its end. Like Nag'molada, she was at ground zero of the Meltdown and was propelled 10,000 years in the future. She went under the guise of Cardinal Mildaurion, spiritual leader of the Tavnazian cathedral, but disappeared when the marquisate was destroyed, and joined the ranks of the Armathrwn Society of Jeuno in order to monitor the actions of Kam'lanaut and Eald'narche, while awaiting the advent of the Keeper of the Apocalypse. She eventually coordinates the efforts of the heroes involved in the Chains of Promathia storyline in order to avoid Bahamut's wrath and destroy the Twilight God.

Fellenant D'Oraguille, Prince
Brother of Raigegue d'Oraguille, he was more religious and peaceful than his sibling. He formed the Temple Knights. In an effort to stop the bloody war between nations, he conspired with the leaders of Bastok to dethrone his brother in exchange for a ceasefire. As a sign of agreement, he gave them the Sceptre Royaulais. The soldiers of Bastok and Fellenant's Temple Knights succeeded in taking the castle up to the point of seizing King Raigegue, when Fellenant had a vision from the Scepter and surrendered. He was placed in the dungeons, since a decree forbade royal blood to be spilled. He later escaped to Jugner Forest.

Fenrir
Terrestrial avatar of the moon. Karaha-Baruha, the hero of Windurst during the Crystal War, used Fenrir to protect the city. He visited Full Moon Fountain alongside the Star Sibyl and attempted to summon Fenrir in his full power, rather than just a fraction of it, which is what normally happens when a summoner invokes an avatar. However, this proved too much for both of them. Fenrir's lifeforce waned, while Karaha-Baruha's was split into two. Part of it incarnated itself within Fenrir. It reappeared alongside him just once to defend the city. The other part lived on inside Joker. This also had the consequence of dimming the Full Moon Fountain, which no longer foretold the future. Thus, the Star Sibyl had to invent her prophecies, unable to truly see what fate was in store for her country. In the Windurst Mission Storyline, Fenrir's lifeforce is restored.

Garuda
A small bird raised by a young prince. When the prince got attacked by a viper, Garuda looked for means to cure him. Another bird informed her that she should seek the aid of the King of Birds, who could awaken the healing wind, Vuychap. Garuda flew ever further upwards, looking for the King of Birds, but couldn't find him anywhere. Having reached the limits of her strength, she fell from the sky, but her resolve was so powerful that she transformed during her fall, gaining a humanoid shape and regaining her vitality. She realized that she now had the power to heal the prince, and did so, leaving him afterwards, as she no longer looked like the little bird he had raised. However, it is said that, once the prince grew up, he managed to find her and married her. Upon Garuda's death, Altana transformed her into the Celestial Avatar of Wind. Vuychap is the name of the brightest, green-coloured star of the Garuda constellation. (See also Monster:Garuda)

He attempts to form an alliance with the Mamool Ja, believing that enemies of the Empire can cooperate.

His first encounter with Luzaf, during the investigation of the Black Coffin, has left him with doubts, and he therefore attempts a discussion with the Prince.

Ifrit
Originally a general named Frit. A ruthless, bloodthirsty man, he participated in many battles. However, he once discovered a baby in the ruins of a village his men had burned down. The baby smiled at him, despite his fearsome appearance, which moved his heart. He took the little girl, named Falbub, and entrusted her to the care of a couple of servants, watching over her as she grew up. However, survivors of Frit's ravages ended up banding together and attacked his home, killing both his servants and Falbub. Angered and saddened by the fact that innocent souls had to pay for his crimes, Frit decided to accept retribution. He ascended to the top of a volcano, where the souls of the dead were said to gather during solar eclipses. When the next eclipse occurred, the ghosts of those he had slain attacked him, their curses transforming him into a demon. However, Falbub's spirit tried to interpose itself. Once again, undaunted by his demonic appearance, she smiled at him without a word of reproach. Upon seeing this, Frit prayed to Altana to exchange his life for hers. His wish was granted, but Altana soon saw that Falbub was unhappy on her own. She thus took both her and Frit to the heavens, rewarding the general's repentance and the girl's devotion. In the legends that were born of this story, Frit was renamed I'Frit (Frit of the Flames). Falbub is the name of the brightest, red-coloured star of the Ifrit constellation. (See also Summon:Ifrit)

Leviathan
A great sea serpent who used to terrorize the Gugru Sea, in protest of the development of sea commerce. All attempts to defeat him failed, until a war hero named Veydal, who lived in an island kingdom in the middle of the Gugru Sea, volunteered to resolve the situation. He wanted to apologize to Leviathan and try to discuss with him. However, his first mate was too eager to fight and attacked the sea serpent before the order was given. Forced to defend his men, Veydal offered his life to Leviathan in return for theirs. He was last seen falling into the sea in fierce combat with the serpent. Upon returning home, Veydal's first mate claimed the victory as his own. However, the next day, Leviathan's body washed ashore, with Veydal's sword planted in his skull. The serpent wished to honour the memory of the brave warrior and show the truth to his kinsmen, in a dying effort. Altana, moved by Leviathan's gesture and Veydal's courage, called them both to the heavens. She transformed Leviathan into the Celestial Avatar of Water. Veydal is the name of the brightest, dark-blue coloured star of the Leviathan constellation. (See also Summon:Leviathan)

Luzaf the Blackheart, Prince
Undead Corsair captain of the Black Coffin (also known as the Ashu Talif), and former prince of Ephramad. 200 years ago, Aht Uhrgan obliterated his homeland, forcing him to create a resistance force. They managed to hold their own for a while, but an imperial ambush (using Lamiae) destroyed their ships. As he was drowning, Luzaf made a pact with Odin, the sovereign deity of Ephramad, asking for revenge. 200 years later, sensing the imminent awakening of Alexander, Odin brings Luzaf and his crew back to life. Luzaf is destined to become Odin's embodiment once his revenge has been carried out. This entails giving his body up for Odin's use and losing his personality. But meeting Aphmau changes his outlook. Ignorant of her identity at first, he is reluctant to kill her once he does find out. She convinces him that she is not responsible for the sins of her forefathers and encourages him to attempt to rebuild his nation rather than destroy Aht Uhrgan. However, that means breaking his pact with Odin, which, for the latter is out of the question. In the end, Aphmau is killed by Alexander, and Luzaf sacrifices his ‘second life' to recover hers, presumably becoming Odin's thrall for eternity, even though Nashmeira does hint to the possibility that something may be done about this situation during her coronation.

Mildaurion C Giloumet, Cardinal
Alias of Eshan'tarl as religious leader of Tavnazia. She was a controversial figure, her teachings clashing with those of the San d'Orian catherdral. She is notably believed to have committed a great sin by removing some paintings depicting the Meltdown from the Temple of Uggalepih. She planned to use the Lay of the Immortals, otherwise known as Memoria de la Stona, a hymn believed to have the power to awaken gods, when the Keeper of the Apocalypse manifested him/herself, in order to force Promathia to manifest himself and defeat him. Thus, she was actively searching for the missing verse of the song. Believed to have died while defending Tavnazia during the Crystal War, she is in fact working for the Armathrwn Society in order to monitor their activities. She is actively pursued by three Sin Hunters (Shikaree X, Y and Z) from the Mithran homeland, who want to bring her to justice.

Expand Images

Mnejing
The male automaton that Aphmau controls. Even though he technically belongs to Razfahd, the latter was not interested in becoming a Puppetmaster, and the Automaton therefore went to Aphmau, along with Ovjang. He appears calmer and less loquacious than his female counterpart, and his behavioural pattern is presumably meant to somewhat resemble Jalzahn. Mnejing is notably part of Karababa's welcoming ceremony, where he gets severely criticized by King of Hearts, Karababa's upstart automaton. When Ovjang gets kidnapped by the Mamool Ja, Mnejing accompanies Aphmau to try to recover her, but both are taken by Luzaf in the process. When Luzaf and Nashmeira are finally captured, Razfahd orders Ghatsad to dismantle both Automatons in order to use their parts, and the advanced programming that went into them, to complete Alexander. After the latter is defeated, Ghatsad manages to reassemble them both, presenting them to Nashmeira during her coronation (even though he actually had to melt the crown in order to fix them). Mnejing's new behavioural pattern seems to display some of Razfahd's character traits, thus serving as a walking memorial to his former owner.

A member of the Armathrwn society. Originally a Kuluu, along with Selh'teus, he was ashamed of his "inferiority". He thus cooperates with the Zilart and wears a special eyepiece which has the same telepathic functions as the "whisper of the soul". During the Crystal War, he was instrumental to creating the allied army. In the Chains of Promathia storyline, his main goal is to stop Selh'teus and find the Chamber of Eventide in Al'taieu, so that he can attempt to become a fully-fledged Zilart. When he realizes that even the Chamber has been tainted by the Emptiness, he loses his mind and pledges his soul to Promathia, from whom he wishes to learn the secret of creation. The resurrected Promathia absorbs him, and he dies upon learning the truth he so craved.

To enforce her authority, she always carries around a large mace (called a Morgenstern).

She is later revealed to be Aphmau, the court Puppetmaster, using ventriloquism to pull off the deception. Nashmeira is very concerned about the well-being of the Empire, and therefore calls the mainland nations for help when she finds it overwhelmed by beastmen attacks. She is subsequently heavily involved in the events of the Aht Uhrgan Mission Storyline and is triumphantly re-crowned upon its completion.

Odin
The dark deity of the Underworld. He is in antagonism with Alexander, and the two are destined to face each other in a confrontation known as Ragnarok, the winner theoretically gaining the right to dictate the laws of the world. In reality, the confrontation leads to mass destruction and is responsible for the disappearance of the Alzadaal civilization 900 years in the past. The dying Prince Luzaf makes a pact with Odin, allowing him to use his body as he sees fit in return for granting him revenge over Aht Uhrgan for destroying his homeland. Odin sees this as an opportunity to use Luzaf's body in order to manifest himself in a tangible form, if the need should arise. 200 years after Luzaf's death, Odin senses the imminent revival of Alexander and brings Luzaf back, giving him a chance to slake his revenge in preparation for Ragnarok. But Luzaf's meeting with Nashmeira changes his outlook, and he decides to challenge Odin's authority, going so far as to stop him from unleashing his attack during the confrontation with Alexander. This matches Razfahd's dying interference with Alexander, and a second Ragnarok is averted. However, Nashmeira's death forces Luzaf to give up his life to Odin once again, in order to bring her back.

Ovjang
The female automaton that Aphmau controls. She is very talkative and energetic, her behavioural pattern presumably being made to resemble that of Jubleel. Ovjang accompanies Aphmau wherever she goes. She notably travels with her in order to discover the secret of the Black Coffin, and gets kidnapped by the Mamool Ja in the process. Luzaf retrieves both her and Mnejing, hoping to study them in case they prove useful for his plans, but Aphmau refuses to abandon them and follows them to the Black Coffin. Ovjang is scrapped alongside Mnejing after Luzaf and Nashmeira's capture, in order to provide spare parts for Alexander. However, Ghatsad manages to repair and improve them both, presenting them to Nashmeira during her coronation.

Phoenix
The Sacred Bird of Resurrection, and one of the Terrestrial Avatars. For reasons unknown, she has lost her original form, and her spirit now lives within Tenzen's sword. He is tasked to protect it, and any soul that his sword claims serves to maintain Phoenix's soul. Back in Tenzen's homeland, the lives of people claimed by the Emptiness were sacrificed to Phoenix.

Pieuje d'Oraguille, Prince
The youngest son of King Destin of San d'Oria. He is the head of the Temple Knights, and, as such, has close connections with the San d'Orian cathedral. He notably serves as Papsque Shamonde's pawn in his bid to retrieve Lightbringer and find the Gates of Paradise. Known to prefer discussion over action, Pieuje is at odds with his brash elder brother, Trion, over the rights of succession. Shamonde fuels this enmity for his own purposes, but Pieuje eventually overcomes his hostility towards his brother, and discovers the Papsque's machinations. Pieuje is also involved in the sidequest for the White Mage's artifact armour.

Povall
A young Galkan boy who claimed to be the new Talekeeper in the Bastok Mission Storyline. He was proven to be a fake by Iron Eater.

Prishe
A young Elvaan girl, who acts as the leader of the Tavnazian survivors. It is strongly believed that she is the Abhorrent One, which is another term for the Keeper of the Apocalypse, a being which is designed to bring about the resurrection of Promathia. She was involved in an accident in her youth which left her unable to age by crystallizing her inner Emptiness (Promathia's curse upon all living things) in visible form as a shard of magicite embedded in her chest. Cardinal Mildaurion informed her of her destiny as the Keeper (although this is later disproved) and of the fact that she intended to allow Promathia to be reborn in order to defeat him. She gave Prishe one of the Zilart amulets used to monitor the thoughts of the Kuluu in order to keep watch over her. With the help of this amulet, Prishe is also later able to communicate with Selh'teus. Despite her fate, Prishe has an energetic, devil-may-care attitude, and is wholly devoted to saving the world from the clutches of Promathia. After the Twilight God is defeated, the magicite in her chest dissolves, and she regains her mortality.

Expand Images

Promathia
The Twilight God, dark counterpart of the Dawn Goddess Altana. Together, they are the creators of all living beings on Vana'diel, which is the revelation attained at the end of the Chains of Promathia storyline. Formerly, it was believed that beastmen originated from Promathia, while the civilized races originated from Altana. Promathia destroyed the Zilart when they attempted to open the Gates of Paradise. When Altana created the five civilized races in response, Promathia cursed them with Emptiness. This ensured their mortality, but also brought out one defining sin in every race. These sins are embodied by the Ark Angels. Promathia seeks to unleash the Emptiness upon the world, thus causing the death of all things, and allowing him to absorb their souls. He is bound in chains in order to prevent him from completing his purpose, but the advent of the Keeper of the Apocalypse threatens to free him.

The alias that Prince Trion uses to pose as a mercenary of Salaheem's Sentinels, in order to discover information about Aht Uhrgan. The disguise is anything but subtle, as all Trion does is wear a golden suit of armour. He collaborates with Gessho, but is eventually unmasked and forced to return to San d'Oria. The fact that he can't tolerate Naja Salaheem's abuse is another strong incentive for him to stop his investigation. This episode serves to cast Trion in a more humorous light, as well as showcase his terrible handwriting.

Raigegue d'Oraguille, King
San d'Orian king and brother of Fellenant d'Oraguille. His more militaristic disposition led him to create the Royal Knights. He was almost dethroned by his brother, but the latter surrendered at the last moment, claiming to have had a vision that prompted him to lay down arms.

Ramuh
A sage from a nation situated on the Buburimu Peninsula. His great learning allowed the country to prosper and develop advanced technology. However, one day, one of Ramuh's machines predicted an earthquake. His kinsmen were unwilling to believe the possibility of a tragedy after so much prosperity, so they didn't take any precautions. The earthquake struck, and the people, angry at their own foolishness, began to look for a scapegoat. Suspicions naturally fell on Ramuh, who decided to exile himself to an uninhabited island after a young boy, who had lost his parents in the earthquake, threw stones at him. The nation neglected its technology, out of spite for Ramuh. Thus, when beastmen attacked them, several years later, they couldn't defend themselves. The same boy who had thrown stones at him—now grown into a man—was sent to ask Ramuh for help, and the sage accepted. He used the Staff of Olduum to wipe out the beastmen with a thunderstorm, but victory had a bitter taste. Fearful of this new power, Ramuh's kinsmen soon forced him into exile again. This time, he didn't return. The nation collapsed, but Altana rewarded Ramuh's selflessness by taking his soul to the heavens and transforming him into the Celestial Avatar of Lightning. Olduum is the name of the brightest, purple-coloured star of the Ramuh constellation. It's also the name of an ancient civilization which used to exist in the Aht Uhrgan region. It's possible that Ramuh learned how to control lightning from them on one of his travels. (See also Summon:Ramuh)

Ranperre R D'Oraguille
24th king of San d'Oria, nicknamed the "Dragon King". He reigned from 782 to 832. Originally ruler of West San d'Oria, he accessed the throne after assassins from East San d'Oria killed his father. Discovering the secret of Lanfeaur d'Oraguille's tablet led him to acquire Lightbringer, which he used to finally reunify the kingdom, the power of the sword being such that he never had the need to draw it. Subsequently believing that this power was too great for him to wield, he sent the sword to Tavnazia and had it locked away in its caverns. Ancient lore says that he saved a black dragon from death, and as a result, the dragon (Vrtra) now protects his tomb.

Raogrimm
Former Talekeeper of the Galka, and member of the Mythril Musketeers. He had a compassionate heart, and was troubled by the way the Bastokers treated the Quadav. This won him the sympathies of Cornelia (I), but also the mortal jealousy of Ulrich. He was dispatched on the Northland Expedition alongside the two of them, but, unable to contain his feelings, Ulrich tried to kill him. Cornelia interposed herself and sacrificed her life for Raogrimm. Enraged by his grief, he allowed himself to be warped by the power of the Dark Magicite which cursed the Northlands. He thus became the Shadow Lord and triggered the Crystal War.

Raubahn
The leader of the Immortals. This ruthless man is loyal to Razfahd, as the original heir to the throne and a fellow recipient of monster blood. Raubahn himself has had a fragment of an Ahriman lens implanted in his eye, which is why his trademark attack is Eyes on Me (an Ahriman move). He assists Razfahd in the battle with Alexander, but is also involved in the sidequest for the Blue Mage's artifact armour. You must also face him (rather than Maat) for the final Limit Break fight as a Blue Mage.

Expand Images

Razfahd, Grand Vizier
Nashmeira's elder brother, and theoretical owner of Mnejing, even though he never really took much interest in him. He was next in line for the throne, until a near-fatal accident in his youth left him with no recourse but accepting a transfusion of beastman blood. Rendered unfit to govern, he has watched over his younger sister, all the while scheming behind her back in order to achieve his own goals. He believes that Nashmeira is too kind-hearted and immature to rule, and intends to revive Alexander, believing that he will protect Aht Uhrgan and allow it to take dominion over Vana'diel. He disregards the fact that a battle between Alexander and Odin is what destroyed the nation of Alzadaal in the past, believing that a custom-made Automaton body will allow him to control Alexander. However, events prove him wrong, as Alexander stops responding to commands and finally kills Nashmeira. When Razfahd realizes his mistake, he sacrifices himself and effectively manages to stop Alexander, even though it is not exactly clear how he achieves this. After Alexander is defeated, Ghatsad manages to recreate Mnejing and Ovjang, and the former's new behavioural pattern contains some of Razfahd's mannerisms.

Rishfee
A young male Immortal. Loyal to Nashmeira before all else, he accompanies her to Mamook to attempt to retrieve Ovjang when the latter is kidnapped. However, they are both discovered, and Rishfee is wounded.

Rochefogne
Brother of the late Queen Leaute. During the Crystal War, he was tasked with the protection of Lightbringer. As he attempted to escape during the battle of Tavnazia, he found himself surrounded by Orcs. Fearing for his life, he unsheathed the sword and fell unconscious. It's revealed during the San d'Oria Mission Storyline that the power of Lighbringer is what caused the destruction of Tavnazia and separated it from the mainland. Rochefogne's goal is to warn King Destin and his sons about the true power of the sword and prevent them from using it. Trion and Pieuje, uncertain of his identity and concerned about San d'Oria's reputation, unsuccessfully attempt to have him assassinated. After finally managing to get the royal family to heed his words and put Lightbringer to rest in King Ranperre's tomb, Rochefogne leaves San d'Oria in search of redemption.

Selh'teus
Originally a Kuluu child and friend of Nag'molada, he believed that there was a way for Kuluu and Zilart to live in peace. However, the Zilart attempted to open the Gates of Paradise and reach Al'taieu, causing the Meltdown. Selh'teus became the protector of Al'taieu, trying to prevent the Gates from being reopened and the world being returned to its original state. This would cause the death of all living beings, since they are, by nature, imperfect, and would not be able to survive within a perfect, complete world. Absorbing the spreading Emptiness within himself, he was eventually overcome by it and died. However, when Tenzen used the power of Phoenix to stop Bahamut from destroying Vana'diel, the spirit of the avatar revived Selh'teus, granting him a very different physical form (older in appearance, with wings, the red wing symbolizing his union with Phoenix), so that he might continue to perform his task as a protector.

Shadow Lord [VILLAIN]
Mysterious leader of the beastman armies, which he managed to unite during the Crystal War. The Shadow Lord is actually the warped form of Raogrimm, the defunct Talekeeper of the Galka, who participated in the ill-fated Northland Expedition. He was eventually defeated by the legendary Dark Knight Zeid of Bastok, who was unaware of his real identity at the time. In a bid to bring chaos to Vana'diel, and thus open the Gates of Paradise unimpeded, the Zilart brothers Eald'narche and Kam'lanaut resurrect the Shadow Lord. He is once again defeated in the course of all three nation Storyline Missions and regains his normal form before he dies, warning Zeid and Lion that, as long as war and strife exist on Vana'diel, there is a chance that he might be reborn. His soul then wanders in Dynamis, the dream realm created by Diabolos to protect the living beings of Vana'diel from possible destruction by Bahamut. He can be defeated there as the Dynamis Lord, with help from the spirits of the other members of the Northland Expedition.

Shiva
Formerly the young ruler of a small kingdom situated in the south of Vana'diel. Despite her young age, Shiva was a wise and highly competent ruler, loved by all her people, except a small fraction of the nobility. Those were faithful to Shiva's uncle, who had been regent when she first came to the throne. Scheming with the neighbouring countries, Shiva's uncle finally managed to organize a coup. He seized the throne and banished Shiva to the frozen Northlands, reluctant to further provoke the anger of the population by executing her outright. However, the rulers with whom he had forged an alliance soon decided to take over the country. In the chaos that followed, a regiment of soldiers, led by general Aeomatra, decided to go rescue their queen. They managed to find her, frozen solid in a block of ice. Unaccustomed to the harsh climate of the Northlands, they also died one by one, refusing to leave their unfortunate queen.

Tenzen
A skilled Samurai from an unknown nation to the Far East. His land is being overrun by the Emptiness, and he comes to Jeuno seeking help, as they are known to have harnessed the power of the Mothercrystals. Tenzen is also the guardian of Phoenix, as the avatar's spirit inhabits his sword. Every soul the sword claims serves to uphold Phoenix's lifeforce. Thus, when people started falling prey to the Emptiness in Tenzen's homeland, they were sacrificed in Phoenix's name, which is a source of great doubt for him. He plays a major role in Chains of Promathia, as he initially tries to stop Selh'teus from spreading the Emptiness further. Having spoken with the remaining Terrestrial Avatars, he comes to believe that Prishe is the Keeper of the Apocalypse. Bahamut suggests that the Keeper should be sacrificed to stop the return of Promathia. Therefore, Tenzen attempts to kill Prishe, but eventually repents, and helps the rest of the group defeat the Twilight God. Deeply moved by all he has witnessed, and still feeling guilt for his misguided actions, he then asks his teammates for forgiveness, before returning to his homeland.

Titan
Originally a member of a tribe of giants (the Titans) who lived in the south of the Quon continent. The tribe was in conflict with the people of a neighbouring city over the ownership and utilization of a forest. Despite their great physical strength, the Titans were eventually overwhelmed by force of sheer numbers. However, one day, a little girl called Daemdalus was looking for a runaway lamb in the forest. She stumbled upon what looked like the corpse of a Titan. It turned out that it was still alive, and, overcoming her fear, Daemdalus showed him compassion by tending to his wounds. The Titan befriended the little girl, but it wasn't long before the inhabitants of the city found out what was going on. They captured the Titan and brought him back to the city. Daemdalus threw herself in front of him in a desperate attempt to stop him from being executed. Seeing her efforts, Altana took pity and called both their souls to the heavens. She transformed Titan into the Celestial Avatar of Earth. Daemdalus is the name of the brightest, yellow-coloured star of the Titan constellation. (See also Summon:Titan)

The eldest son of King Destin of San d'Oria. He is the head of the Royal Knights, and is known to act first and think later. He is next in line to succeed his father, but, in the San d'Oria Mission Storyline, Papsque Shamonde insists that Lightbringer should be found to designate the rightful heir (the one who will supposedly lead San d'Oria to discover the Gates of Paradise). Both Trion and Pieuje are also responsible for attempting to assassinate their uncle, Rochefogne, because of doubts as to his identity and fear for San d'Oria's reputation. Upon discovering this, Destin postpones his decision as to his successor, demanding that his sons right their ways and prove their worth honourably. Trion is a very skilled swordsman, and used to have a sparring partner in General Curilla of the Temple Knights, but her over-eagerness to best him in a tournament led to her losing an eye. Nevertheless, it is repeatedly hinted that the he is not indifferent to her charms. In Treasures of Aht Uhrgan, a more humorous side to Trion is shown, as he attempts to infiltrate the Empire under the guise of a mercenary called Raillefal. He is also involved in the sidequest for the Paladin's artifact armour.

She was taken in by the Star Sibyl of the time and eventually designated as her successor. But the newly discovered power of magic created conflicts among the Tarutaru tribes, and as a result, no one attended Tukuku's rite of accession. Thus, she devoted a lot of effort to uniting her people, and eventually persuaded them to create the Federation of Windurst.

She is very good friends with the Goblin Fickblix, and thus has a unique bond with the Jeunoan Goblin community. She firmly believes that the civilized races and the beastmen can live in peace someday, even though Fickblix dies at the hands of adventurers.

Volker
Captain of the Mythril Musketeers of Bastok and nephew to the infamous Ulrich, of whose deeds he is, however, ignorant.

However, he mysteriously disappeared after the battle, which led people to give Volker credit for the victory (and the responsibility of success). This doesn't sit well with Volker's conscience. In the Bastok Mission Storyline, he is tasked with controlling the explosive situation concerning the new Talekeeper. Moreover, Zeid, who believes that Volker willfully took credit for the Shadow Lord's defeat, reveals to him the truth about Ulrich's treachery. The shame of this discovery, along with his misgivings about his position lead him to confront Zeid in duel, attempting to persuade him to accept his rightful place. But Zeid acknowledges his strength, telling him that he is a much better example for Bastok, because he is able to give his fellow citizens hope, something that Zeid has abandoned.

She understood that opening the Gates of Paradise was dangerous and was sympathetic of the Kuluu's plight. She created the Chamber of Eventide in Al'taieu, a device said to be able to cleanse the Emptiness from a person's soul. However, after realizing that the Emptiness actually congregated in the Chamber, she sacrificed herself by sealing herself within, in order to hold it at bay. She appears in spirit form, throughout Rise of the Zilart and Chains of Promathia, providing guidance and insight. She notably appears to Eald'narche in his dying moments, demonstrating to him that his quest was futile.

Zeid
A legendary Galkan Dark Knight. He was originally a Mythril Musketeer, under the name of War Cloud. He dealt the final blow to the Shadow Lord during the Crystal War, but his misgivings about the Humes' treatment of the Galka led him to disappear after the battle. Thus Volker was left to take credit for the victory. When he discovers the truth about the Shadow Lord's identity, Zeid, angry at what he believes was a willful deception on Volker's part, reveals to him the truth about Ulrich and Raogrimm. This leads to a duel between the two men. Volker tries to persuade Zeid to take back his rightful place among the Mythril Musketeers, but Zeid refuses, telling Volker that he's much better suited for the role, because he has hope that Zeid doesn't. This is partly due to his involvement with Raogrimm, and partly because of his path as a Dark Knight. In Rise of the Zilart, after defeating the resurrected Shadow Lord, Zeid decides to put a stop to Kam'lanaut's and Eald'narche's plans, alongside Aldo and Lion. He is also involved in the sidequest for the Dark Knight's artifact armour.
