Xantcha's Ramblings

I should really be in bed and not posting my Job/Class theories about Yugiri and The Fraternity.

New Job Theory: Yugiri & The Fraternity

After getting caught up with the Main Scenario of FFXIV online I have come to my own conclusion about what jobs may be introduced based on the information SE had given us thus far! ( I will not be talking about Musketeer!)

Anyway, I have a really strong feeling that SE is going to Introduce Thief(THF) / Ninja(NIN). Maybe some kind of cross between the two? Or maybe both!

How I came to this conclusion?

First the obvious! Yugiri hails from the eastern city of Doma. That clues us in right there as well as her fighting style seen at the Sahagin spawning grounds! Very reminiscent of the FFXI NIN fighting stance! There is also her outfit!

If we look at her clothing its easy to see that she is very much covered. Of course SE wants to do this to bring mystery about her character and she even explains why she dresses as she does! However, it is a HUGE clue into what she practices! The veil type mask, the oriental markings on her arm, and even the rips/tattered hem of her cloak/shirt. Seems VERY eastern/ninja/assassiny.

Although, one thing that really tipped me off as well as caught my eye was the herbs/plants tied to her hip:

Take a step back with me down memory lane if you will to the land of Vana’diel in FFXI. I played the Ninja class quite a bit and I remember making my own tools. I look back to one Ninja tool/spell specifically:

If you look at the ingredients used to make the tool Sairui-ran to cast Kurayami or “slow” it uses a variety of “natural ingredients” Many other ninja tools did this as well. But using this information as to how SE thinks and looking at those leaf type “tools” strapped to Yugiri’s sash, it very much be could be a “Ninja Tool”. Or, you know, its healing herbs and I am totally wrong! But, hey! It’s just a theory.

Plus I mean, look at this AF3 Armor for NIN in FFXI as well:

Veil much?

That’s enough for my NIN explanation.

On what it was like shooting the purple wedding: ”All of us girls are sitting there, because it’s so hot in Dubrovnik in Croatia in the summer. So we’re all sitting with our skirts up around our necks, you know, playing scrabble. It’s very glamorous” — Natalie Dormer on Late Night with Seth Meyers (x)

These two characters are from a creative writing class I took early on in college. I was inspired by the “desert romance” theme, so these characters were born. Haha the first drawing is so old. From 2010 prolly? I can’t remember. It’s basically supposed to be like a romance/adventure similar to Fire Emblem, in which the former princess goes around and through impressive military strategy, reclaims her rightful place throne. Kind of an overdone story deal, but I still had fun with it nonetheless. 

Amir/Amira are the same person. Amira was a princess of a powerful desert nation whose throne was usurped by extremists, when she was little. This nation was vast, and had a massive golden palace that sat upon an ancient mountain. The nation’s royal knights bred and rode wyverns into battle, destroying all armies that had ever tried to claim the throne. The military had similar control over large dune lizards that raced over sands at speeds similar to those of horses on land. With these creatures at their disposal, this great nation was a powerhouse, and the fact that the throne had been taken away from Amira was a baffling and unfortunate obstacle.

She’s been in hiding ever since, with the help of her childhood servant and best friend, as well as her aunt, who was married to the decorated general of the desert nation’s military. In order to keep her heritage completely under wraps, she had to adopt an entirely new appearance through the use of her own magical powers and a peculiar magic stone inherited from her mother, which she still is learning to control. At the age of sixteen, she now has enough control over her powers to completely change her gender and appearance for a certain amount of time each day, and goes by the name “Amir.”

Amir is a new recruit in the infantry division of the desert nation, directly under the lead of Aiden, the taller man in the first image, who eventually falls in love with her, initially in her male form. Aiden was a former slave from a foreign nation that tried to invade Amira’s home and failed. He is frequently looked down on for his slave tattoos as well as his lighter skin and blonde hair—traits that were common in the foreign nation’s people, completely unlike the darker haired and darker skinned individuals born and raised in Amira’s homeland. But his charisma, strength, and patient understanding bought him his freedom and high standing in the military, as well as Amira’s respect and silent adoration.

Luckily for Amira, few people know about her special abilities, as there was a mass killing and enslavement of all mages, by her own great-grandfather, decades ago. Through a series of events, Amira’s cover is blown and it becomes apparent that her father is not the man she thought he was. She goes back to the capital with Aiden and their own army of pretty random individuals, frees the enslaved mages and reclaims the throne, mending her nation’s horrible ties with all the other countries its terrorized in the past.

Ishgard’s design reminds me of Lindblum a little bit.

I’m praying for you, Honey, if you feel the need to degrade other people because of your own insecurities then maybe you need to reevaluate yourself. I’m not a whore, I’m just enjoying what I’ve been given. <3

♥ Stay awesome.

The essence that surrounds GMs is the same that can be seen around Ascians and many Voidsent, which really just means that like them, GMs are denizens of the Void.
In FFXI it was said that the GMs were the Judges of Vana’diel (such as those from Ivalice), and that they resided in the same realm as Atomos which allowed them to travel instantaneously to any part of Vana’diel — even across time and dimensions. I’m assuming this was the Void as well.
We know that the Void is a sort of universe that connects all the Final Fantasy worlds and times, through which characters such as Gilgamesh and the Ascians and etc travel.
It’s very interesting.
