Alisaie Leveilleur [ˈæl.ɪˌzeɪ ˌlɛv.eɪˈjɜːr, alizɛ ləvɛjœʁ] is a character in Final Fantasy XIV. She and her older twin brother, Alphinaud, are the grandchildren of Louisoix Leveilleur and the children of Fourchenault and Ameliance Leveilleur. Her first major appearance is in the Binding Coil of Bahamut quests.

Up to the events of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Alisaie was largely absent from the Scions of the Seventh Dawn affairs, but upon dealing with the Warriors of Darkness and the events leading up to Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, she returns to aid the Scions and the Warrior of Light.

History[]

Early life[]

Alisaie and her twin brother Alphinaud were born to Fourchenault Leveilleur, a Sharlayan dignitary and son of Louisoix Leveilleur, in the Dravanian Hinterlands. However only a year after they were born the Sharlayan colony in Dravania was abandoned and the entire population returned to the Sharlayan motherland. As a result of leaving at such a young age, Alphinaud and Alisaie have no memory of the Dravanian Hinterlands.

Alisaie and her brother attended the Studium at a young age and were given grimoires by Louisoix before he left for Eorzea. The twins were unaware that their tomes were halves of a larger grimoire, signifying Louisoux's wish for the twins to understand each other and share a common goal.

Alisaie and Alphinaud came to Eorzea to seek answers for Louisoix Leveilleur's actions. At the ceremony for the Warriors of Light, Alisaie became livid over the pettiness of the Grand Companies, arguing with her brother over how its leaders are using the ceremony to rally their troops rather than make mention of the heroes. While Alphinaud would eventually join the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, Alisaie stormed off on her own.

Alisaie Binding Coil of Bahamut

Alisaie leads a group of adventurers to the Binding Coil of Bahamut.

Following Ultima Weapon's and the resurrected primals' defeat, the Warrior of Light was sent to meet a contact to investigate the awakening of an unknown primal. The contact was Alisaie who has kept tabs on the Warrior's exploits. Determined to discover the ultimate fate of Bahamut, she requested the Warrior of Light's help in exploring the Binding Coil of Bahamut below Castrum Occidens. She was left with more questions than answers after seeing Louisoix somehow alive in the ruins. Joined by Alphinaud in the Final Coil of Bahamut, Alisaie learned the truth of their grandfather's transcendence into Phoenix. The twins worked together to hold Bahamut back so the Warrior of Light could destroy the primal's Crystal Core.

Alisaie began to understand her grandfather better and sought to continue his legacy of protecting Eorzea in her own way. During this time Alisaie caught wind of the Crystal Braves' betrayal, the impending assassination attempt on Sultana Nanamo Ul Namo during a banquet which Alphinaud and the other Scions were to attend, and the framing of the Scions for the act. While she was unable to prevent the events from occurring, Alisaie was able to send a carriage to rescue Alphinaud and the Warrior of Light from the forces of Ul'dah. As they fled, Alphinaud lamented that his sister was always there to save him while he should have been the one protecting her.

During her journey following Bahamut's defeat, Alisaie learned the art of red magic from X'rhun Tia. She was quick to apply her already admirable magic abilities to the discipline, but initially struggled with the swordplay aspect. More common rapiers failed to suit her, so she resorted to summoning aetherial blades from her grimoire instead.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

FFXIV 3

Alisaie, the Warrior of Light, and Ga Bu mourn their losses at Camp Overlook.

Alisaie learned of the Warriors of Darkness and their primal hunts as she heads to the Twelveswood to investigate. Discovered while spying one of the Warriors meeting with Elidibus, she was rescued by Thancred Waters. Alisaie ended up being poisoned by the Ranger of Darkness, J'rhoomale, and thus Thancred brought her to Ishgard. Before being taken for treatment, Alisaie warned the Warrior of Light and Alphinaud that the Warriors of Darkness were planning to allow the Ixal to summon Garuda, prompting them to travel to Xelphatol to stop them. By the time Alphinaud and the Warrior of Light returned to Ishgard, having stopped the Ixal and learning the Warrior of Darkness' goals, Alisaie had recovered. After receiving a new outfit from Tataru, she joined the Scions despite acting hostile towards Urianger Augurelt.

While accompanying the Warrior to prevent Patriarch Za Da from summoning Titan, Alisaie befriended a koboldling named Ga Bu, who's parents were among the intended sacrifices to facilitate the summoning, but they arrived to late and Ga Bu accidentally summoned Titan himself in his despair. Following Titan's defeat, Ga Bu was left in a catatonic state, leading all to surmise he had been tempered. Alisaie however refused to give up on the child, and implored the Maelstrom to take him into their care rather than put him to the sword as was procedure for tempering victims. Alisaie would make occasional visits to Ga Bu to check for any signs of recovery to no avail.

The Scions continued investigation of the Warriors of Darkness led them to Southern Thanalan, where they would catch up with and battle the Warriors in the Bowl of Embers. As the battle began, Alisaie revealed her red mage training, summoning a magical sword to defeat the Warriors of Darkness alongside the Warrior of Light, Alphinaud, Thancred, and Urianger. She then travelled to the Rising Stones, the headquarters of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, where she officially joined the group and approved of her brother's restructuring of the organization as a fellowship.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood[]

When the Scions travelled to Othard to help with the liberation of Doma, Alisaie accompanied the Warrior of Light, Alphinaud, Tataru, and Lyse. Urianger gave her a custom-made rapier so that she would no longer have to use her aether to summon a blade.

After arriving in Kugane, Alisaie crossed Othard with the Warrior of Light and Lyse. In the Ruby Sea she assisted the Warrior of Light in gaining the cooperation of the Confederacy and received a blessing from the Kojin, which allowed her to breathe underwater. After joining forces with Lord Hien and the Doman resistance, she helped prepare for the upcoming battle to retake Doma Castle from Garlean control and worked alongside her brother to disable the magitek-generated shields that protect the castle.

Once Doma was liberated, Alisaie returned to Eorzea and continued to assist the Eorzean Alliance and Ala Mhigan Resistance as they pushed toward the city of Ala Mhigo. During the battle to take Castrum Abania, Alisaie fought Fordola rem Lupis and was injured when Fordola displayed new abilities. Although not life-threatening, the injuries were severe enough to prevent her from participating in the final battle for Ala Mhigo. After the defeat of Zenos yae Galvus, and the end of the Garlean occupation of Ala Mhigo, Alisaie was recovered enough to celebrate the victory with the other Scions.

After Alphinaud left with Maxima on a diplomatic voyage to Garlemald, Alisaie couldn't help but worry, exacerbated when they lose contact with him over the Burn. Shortly after, the Scions begin to fall victim to a mysterious illness that sees their souls beckoned from their bodies. When Alisaie and the Warrior accompanied Hien to witness the activation of Seiryu's Wall in the Burn, they were met by Gaius van Baelsar bringing her unconscious brother back to the care of the Scions, having fallen to same affliction as the other Scions. Gaius explained he helped Alphinaud during the fall of his airship and warned of the Empire's new biological weapon: the Black Rose. With the rest of the main Scions unconscious, Alisaie acted as their representative in the audience with Emperor Varis, and participated in the battle against Garlemald in the Ghimlyt Dark. After the first wave was defeated, Alisaie herself fell victim to the illness, leaving the Warrior of Light alone.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers[]

It was revealed that Alisaie and the rest of the Scions had their souls taken to a parallel world of the Source known as the First, where they became 'corporeal spirits'. As a result of time dilation between the worlds, Alisaie learned that the other Scions had already been there years before she arrived. She learned of the plight the people of the First faced in the sin eaters and from Urianger learned of the coming Eighth Umbral Calamity that would kill the Warrior of Light. Stuck on the First with no other recourse, Alisaie assisted the others in finding a way to change the future. She devoted her energy to studying the enemy and headed to the arid lands of Amh Araeng where the Oracle of Light halted the Flood almost a century prior.

She made herself known as a wandering sellsword and guard, protecting caravans in the region from sin eater incursions before coming across the Inn at Journey's Head, where the light-afflicted victims of the eaters gathered to live out the rest of their mortal life, before taking their last meal instead of becoming sin eaters themselves. Sympathetic towards these lost souls, and the carers that had dedicated their lives to ensuring their comfort, Alisaie became a guard for the inn, carrying out odd jobs here and there to relieve the burden. She became close friends with the head carer, Tesleen, and shared tales with her of the Warrior of Light.

This arrangement continued for almost a full year until the Crystal Exarch succeeded in summoning the Warrior to the First. When seeking out their comrades to determine if the situation of the world is as the Exarch described, the Warrior journeyed to Amh Araeng to reunite with Alisaie. The Warrior met with Tesleen and escorted her back to the Inn before encountering Alisaie as she hunted down a lesser eater. She explained the nature of sin eaters to the Warrior and the purpose of the Inn. When a large group of sin eaters attacked, Tesleen was stabbed by a greater sin eater while trying to defend one of her charges, Halric, and Alisaie and the Warrior could only watch in horror as Tesleen transformed into a sin eater before their eyes. Knowing that simply culling the sin eater forces one at time would do little to prevent further tragedies, Alisaie left her post at the Inn and returned to the Crystarium with the Warrior to find a more permanent solution.

After both Alisaie and Alphinaud had returned, the Exarch explained to the Warrior the nature of the Rejoinings that drove the destructive force of each Umbral Calamity. The excess Light of the First caused the Eighth Umbral Calamity and thus needed to be removed. The majority of this Light was held within the strongest sin eaters known as Lightwardens, who were also responsible for ever present clouds of Light in the sky. Guard Captain Lyna arrived with news that the nearby village of Holminster Switch was under attack by a sin eater horde. Alisaie joined her brother, the Warrior, the Exarch, and Lyna in defending the village during which they slew both the eater that transformed Tesleen and Tesleen herself. They defeated the sin eater leading the charge, the Lightwarden Philia, who dissolved into Light, which the Warrior absorbed. Instead of transforming into a new warden, the Warrior appeared to extinguish the light, and the clouds in the sky dispersed, revealing the night in all its beauty. As the party returned to assist the residents of the city acclimate to this change, Alisaie remained behind at Holminster to keep her mind busy and pay respects to Tesleen.

Before eventually returning to the Source once a method was safely devised, Alisaie learned a means to treat those infected by sin eaters like Halric. Following her return and recuperation, Alisaie decided to apply her treatment to those tempered by the primals. She traveled to Azys Lla with the Warrior of Light and G'raha, where they found data on eikonic corruption authored by the Allagan researcher Owen. With Garlond Ironworks able to decipher Owen's research and develop a spell which G'raha augmented with his memory transference, Alisaie cured Ga Bu of his tempering. Her group was joined by Alphinaud and Y'shtola as they gained Master Matoya's help in creating a Mother Porxie to mass-produce porxies for their allies' use in ending the primal threat in using them to cure the tempered.

Despite having a means to combat the primals and contending to local complications in the city-states, Alisaie and the Scions encountered the rogue Ascian, Fandaniel, and his newly created primal, Lunar Bahamut, in Ala Mhigo. Fandaniel pledged his services to Zenos and planned to not restore the Source as it once was, but to destroy it by restarting the Final Days. Forced to flee in the wake of Lunar Bahamut's power, Fandaniel delivered his message from Zenos, demanding a "reunion" with the Warrior of Light. Returning to the Rising Stones, the Scions agreed to find and recruit Estinien again to battle the Lunar primal. As Krile and Tataru looked for the Azure Dragoon, the Scions discovered that strange towers had appeared all over the three continents of the known world to forcibly temper people into serving Zenos and Fandaniel.

As the Resistance deployed agents to discover the towers' purpose, Alisaie, G'raha, and the Warrior of Light intercepted Estinien in Ishgard. He evaded Krile and Tataru at first, but desired an airship after being informed of Lunar Bahamut. Alisaie met the dragoon her brother had spoken so much about, but to her annoyance, Estinien mistook her for Alphinaud. Unlike her brother, Alisaie would not admire Estinien but find him overtly blunt and gruff. Estinien intended to seek the aid of the one who could equal the Lunar primal in strength: Bahamut's broodmate, Tiamat. To free her from Bahamut's lingering enthrallment, Alisaie, G'raha, and the Warrior of Light removed her bindings and cast their cure over the ancient dragon. They gain her assistance and Estinien rode upon Tiamat towards the primal imposter of her fallen mate, having been sighted near a tower outside the borders of Ul'dah.

The Scions raced towards Amalj'aa territory as Lunar Bahamut laid wastes upon their forces. With the aid of Tiamat and Estinien, they brought Lunar Bahamut down, saving the Amalj'aa, who agreed to a truce with the Eorzean Alliance. The Scions and Estinien returned to the Rising Stones to rest, but met with Krile who intended to travel to the isolationist nation of Sharlayan to recruit their aid in gathering whatever knowledge they can on Hydaelyn and in preventing the Final Days from happening again. She asked that Estinien join the Scions of the Seventh Dawn to aid her comrades, to which the dragoon agreed.

The Scion were invited to Ala Mhigo for a meeting with the Alliance leaders as well as the Beast Tribe representatives. They reached an accord in combating the Empire and the Ascian Fandaniel, naming their newly formed alliance the Grand Company of Eorzea. To help facilitate this alliance and better develop communications, Kan-E Senna asked Alphinaud for his expertise in organizing the grand company, to which he agreed. To help in this, Alisaie interviewed former members of the Crystal Braves, some of whom were harsh but nonetheless gave them the critique Alphinaud was looking for. As they delivered their report, Alisaie was shocked to learn Sharlayan had sent an envoy to Gridania to deliver the Forum's answer, and this envoy was, in fact, their father.

In Gridania, Alisaie and her brother reunited with Fourchenault Leveilleur. Though the twins were happy to see him, they were dismayed that his disposition and that of Sharlayan's remained unchanged: they would observe history, not intervene to change it, even when the world itself was in peril. Though the twins attempted to convince Fourchenault of the threat the Telophoroi posed and of their goal in restarting the Final Days, he remained unmoved, claiming Alisaie and Alphinaud had forgotten their Sharlayan roots and adopted their grandfather's "foolish" ways. Fourchenault renounced his children as Leveilleurs, leaving Alisaie devastated. Alphinaud said she could not change the opinions of their father and the Forum, and G'raha Tia suggested from Fourchenault's strange behavior, and being envoy instead of a lesser ranked member, that Sharlayan may know more about the Final Days than they were letting on. Krile informed them that the Forum had ignored her warnings of the Final Days, and forbade anyone from discussing with the Scions.

Regardless of their father's words and Sharlayan's continued isolation, Alisaie lent her skills in curing the tempered when word reached them that the Telophoroi had launched an invasion into Xelphotol and Coerthas. There they discovered that Fandaniel intended to use aether glyphs to siphon the land of aether, which his Lunar primals would then destroy. Alisaie and G'raha fought off Lunar Ravana before he could destroy a glyph, with their allies meeting similar success. With his plan in tatters, Fandaniel took his leave, causing the majority of his forces to disperse. With the fighting largely over, Alisaie attended to the tempered, some of whom she couldn't save, and though she and the other Scions were dismayed by the losses, her spirits alighted after hearing words of gratitude from the Beast Tribes and the Alliance.

The Scions returned to the Rising Stones to discuss their next action and agreed that Sharlayan may possess the knowledge they needed to combat the Telophoroi and forestall the Final Days. Alisaie, Alphinaud, and the Warrior of Light departed for Sharlayan.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

Arriving in Sharlayan, Krile divided the Scions into two parties: one party to investigate Forum's actions due to their refusal to intervene, and the other to assist the alchemists on Thavnair to create the means to protect people from the Telophoroi's towers. Alisaie, along with Alphinaud, Y'shtola, G'raha, and Krile, went on to investigate the Forum, learning that Sharlayan gleaners had been gathering knowledge and samples from all over the world. Krile procured them permission to enter Labyrinthos, a facility located beneath the island, while G'raha went to Noumenon to seek answers. To learn more, Y'shtola used a transforming spell to temporarily turn Alisaie, Alphinaud, and the Warrior of Light into toads to blend in. They followed Erenville, and eavesdropped his conversation with a Forum member, although Erenville blew their cover afterwards. Fourchenault caught wind of their investigations after G'raha carelessly used magic inside Noumenon and had them brought in front of the Forum to answer for their actions. Fourchenault pushed for the Scions to be expelled from Sharlayan, until G'raha told about what he had discovered: 270 years ago, the Forum policies had changed when they discovered something from within their Dravanian colony, and it had been driving the Forum's non-intervention policy ever since. Thanks to scholar Montichaigne, head of the Studium, the Forum called for a vote, which was narrowly turned to the Scions' favor, allowing them to remain on Sharlayan on the condition of ceasing any investigations.

Alisaie and Alphinaud were met by their mother, Ameliance. She acted against Fourchenault's renouncing of them, and invited them to their home and gave her children new outfits. When the Thavnairian group returned, all of the Scions decided to assault the Tower of Zot to release captives from it and destroy the tower. They succeeded with the help of warding scales the alchemists had created that shielded its wearer from tempering. Alisaie helped out the freed captives, until the Scions were called by Vrtra, the island's dragon ruler, to personally thank them. Alisaie noted that Vrtra had given his own scales for the warding scales, but Vrtra was not bothered by the pain, more than what would have happened to his people if the tower had not been destroyed.

Following the Scions' victory, the Grand Company of Eorzea and Far Eastern Alliance came into agreement of forming the Ilsabard Contingent, a task force of both alliances to travel to Garlemald to assault the Telophoroi and provide assistance to any surviving Garleans. After fighting their way through the Magna Glacies, the Contingent established forward base in Camp Broken Glass. Lucia Junius, the leader of the Contingent, assigned Alisaie, Alphinaud, and the Warrior to search for survivors in the outskirts of the city. Emmanallein de Fortemps located a young Garlean girl, and they followed her to her shelter, an abandoned house housing some survivors who had not been tempered yet. The girl was at first scared, but eventually calmed down, and Alisaie and Alphinaud provided whatever succor they could, but it proved difficult due to Garleans' hesitancy to accept help from "savages". When the survivors paranoia erupted, Alphinaud and Alisaie were forced to subdue them, while the girl and her sick sister fled out of fear. The Warrior went after them, but by the time they found them, native beasts had already killed them. Alphinaud and Alisaie buried them, yet the experience left them feeling uneasy. Returning to the camp, Lucia told them not to blame themselves.

Cirina burst in and informed that a young Garlean was caught by Magnai trying to steal their supplies. Alphinaud and Alisaie decided to question him. The man was Jullus Norbanus, who refused to divulge anything, only saying that three people would be allowed to accompany him to see his commander. Alisaie and Alphinaud and the Warrior agreed for the mission, leaving Jullus disgusted of having to escort children and a sellsword.

Inside the Tertium, the twins and the Warrior met with Quintus van Cinna, the legatus of the Ist Legion. Despite Alphinaud's claim that they would be willing to help him and his people, he refused due to his nationalistic pride, and his belief that the other legions would soon reinforce him. He took the group hostage and had Alisaie and Alphinaud wear collars to keep them in line, yet no collar was given to the Warrior since he recognized them as the Champion of Eorzea, stunning Jullus. The twins and the Warrior were tasked of finding ceruleum within the city. They believed it was to provide heat for the refugees, but after completing the task, they learned the material was needed for the Ist Legion to power-up one of their magitek armors. Alphinaud and Alisaie were taken into holding without any warmth, while the Warrior returned to the camp with Jullus. Thanks to Thancred, however, the Contingent got wind of Quintus's scheme. While alone, Alisaie and Alphinaud talked about their situation and what they would do with their lives. Alisaie noted that Alphinaud had already chosen his path, and Alisaie intended to support him. They were rescued by Estinien and intended to meet with Quintus again to have him change his mind, only to be shocked to learn that after being informed that his reinforcements would not come, he had committed suicide after releasing his troops from service.

The surviving Garleans were taken to Camp Broken Glass where everyone were given succor when a roar erupted from the Tower of Babil and the Garleans were being tempered. Alisaie used Angelo to cure the tempering, and in the confusion, the Warrior of Light disappeared. They later returned, but G'raha recognized that this was not the Warrior, but Zenos who had used his artificial Echo to inhabit the Warrior's body. The real Warrior intervened just in time, and Fandaniel returned Zenos and the Warrior to their own bodies. The Contingent assaulted the Tower, and the Scions took down its core, the primal Anima, created from the corpse of Emperor Varis. Anima's death caused all of the remaining Telophoroi to go berserk, and Alisaie had to do what she could to stem them down while the Warrior used an Allagan teleporter to travel to the moon.

After the Warrior returned, they informed everyone that Zodiark was dead, which was Fandaniel's ultimate goal to reenact the Final Days. The Scions returned to Sharlayan, where they witnessed the Forum's announcement that the Final Days were upon the star, confirming the Scions' suspicion that the Forum had been aware of the Final Days for over two centuries. Adding that to what the Warrior had learned on the moon, the Forum had been laboring to be ready to evacuate the star's population to the moon and find a new star to inhabit. Alisaie and Alphinaud talked with Fourchenault and made it clear that they agreed with the evacuation, but only if all else failed. Fourchenault told them to do whatever they want; he only asked them not to intervene with Forum's goals.

The next day, the Scions received a word from Thavnair that something was going on. They traveled to Yedhlimad to find the sky burning and meteors falling. Alisaie said the Final Days were truly upon them. The satrap Ahewann informed them last night a terrible roar was heard, and afterwards the sky turned and people began to transform into beasts, with the largest of them, a blasphemy, flying towards Vanaspati. The Scions joined the Radiant Host there and defeated the blasphemy, which evaporated, leaving nothing in its wake. As Y'shtola said, the blasphemy had lost all of its aether, which meant that even though some of the creature's personality endured, it did not mean anything, because in the end there was nothing to be saved, which left Alisaie disheartened as there was no way to save those who transformed.

The Scions returned to Radz-at-Han to inquire the people about the blasphemy, with Alisaie asking around with Alphinaud. The Scions learned that when the blasphemy appeared, many people flew into panic and transformed as well. Unlike the Ancients, whose creation magicks went out of control due to the same effect, the people, due to being sundered souls of the Ancients, were transforming themselves. G'raha pointed out that the Khalzahl, the man who turned into the blasphemy, turned before the skies began to burn, horrifying Alisaie, because it meant that anyone could turn into a blasphemy without anyone suspecting anything until would be too late.

Matsya ran to the city and told everyone that Palaka's Stand had been overrun with beasts. An elderly woman panicked and turned into a beast herself, with many others following suit. Alisaie, along with Alphinaud and the Warrior, attempted to see the people to safety. G'raha used his expertise as the Crystal Exarch to keep the people calm. Thancred told Alisaie and Alphinaud to go with Matsya to Palaka's Stand to help the people there, with the Warrior going alongside them.

In Palaka's Stand, Alisaie, Alphinaud, and the Warrior did what they could to help the people, and saved quite a many of them. Alisaie was particularly impressed with Matsya after he reminded the people about the teachings of their ancestors. They were soon asked to find Mehvan and her baby, as she had escaped deeper into the jungle. She was found near a temple, being threatened by a beast. Alisaie threw a rock at the beast, but the beast grabbed Mehyan's head and threw her into a pool. The Warrior dived to save her, but she was killed instantly. They yet managed to get the baby to safety, but were ambushed by a group of beasts, and Alisaie told Matsya to take the baby back to Palaka's Stand while they dealt with the beasts. They defeated them all, and fortunately for them, Estinien along with Vrtra saved Matsya and the baby.

Returning to Palaka's Stand, Vrtra revealed to its people that he was the true satrap, which he intended to reveal to the rest of his people. In Radz-at-Han, the remaining Scions had quelled the situation for now, and Vrtra revealed himself to his people, and they accepted him without reservations. Fourchenault arrived with a Forum envoy to give the people of Thavnair a chance to be saved by evacuating to the moon. Vrtra went with him to discuss the matter, while the Scions took a reprieve and discussed the situation. Alisaie believed they needed to get to the core of the problem, because running around without a clear foal would not accomplish anything. She wondered if they had overlooked something. The Warrior remembered that the Watcher on the moon had told them about the flower they had received from Hydaelyn, and that its name was Elpis. That name did not mean anything to the Scions, but it must have meant something to the Ancients. Alisaie said it was another dead end, because there were no live Ancients to ask. G'raha said there was one: Elidibus, sealed within the Crystal Tower on the First. Since the Warrior was the only one who could still travel between the Source and the First, it fell to them go and ask him. In the meantime, Alisaie and the rest of the Scions decided to do whatever they could about the Final Days.

Alisaie and Alphinaud kept traveling to help however they could. Eventually, the Scions were called to Garlemald to assist the Ilsabard Contingent, as the Final Days had struck there, and the Forum intended to speed up the evacuation by utilizing the Allagan teleporter inside the Tower of Babil. Alisaie and G'raha engaged beasts to protect Thavnairian refugees. Alisaie got beaten up and cursed herself for not being like the Warrior, yet she acknowledged that she could not rely on them every time. The Warrior arrived to help out, and together with other Scions the threat was eliminated for now. Fourchenault changed his plan; instead of using the teleporter, he would take the refugees to Sharlayan. Another beast showed up, chasing a refugee, but it was slain by Zenos. Alisaie was disgusted that even in the face of the world's end, he still only cared about getting his rematch with the Warrior of Light. As Zenos was about to leave, since the Warrior was not going to fight him there and then, Alisaie stopped him, and claimed that Zenos may have found a meaning in living the way he does, as it had granted him great strength, but also pointed out if he kept on trying to satisfy only himself, then no one would ever give him the light of day; he would never get the rematch he longed for, and would be alone for the rest of his life. Zenos left in silence.

The Scions returned to Sharlayan where the Warrior revealed what they had learned while in the First: Elidibus sent them back in time to the unsundered world, into Elpis itself, which was a testing facility for the Ancients' creations. The Warrior had met Emet-Selch, Hythlodaeus, Hermes, and Venat, and discovered that Hermes created familiars called the Meteia and sent them to the great expanse to discover other civilizations and their reasons to live. All the Meteia discovered were dead or dying worlds, and concluded that life was meaningless suffering, and since they utilized dynamis, an energy based on emotions, they were able to concentrate into a raging river that in sufficient quantity could even drown more powerful aether. The Scions course was clear; find and defeat the Meteia. They needed to find out where they nested and secure the means of traveling there. Y'shtola believed Hydaelyn knew the location, but the traveling means were still unknown. They did figure that the Forum must have some way of transporting the people to the moon. And since Alphinaud had requested from Fourchenault a chance to know the Forum's plan, they were then called. As Krile took the front, Fourchenault revealed the Forum's plan was to evacuate as many people as possible with their Ark, alongside knowledge and samples. The Ark was complete, but its engine, the aetherburner, was not powerful enough to meet with Forum's goals. Alphinaud offered that the Scions would improve the aetherburner's efficiency on two conditions: if the succeeded, they must be allowed to meet with Hydaelyn and use the Ark for their own purposes. The Forum accepted the proposal, which meant the evacuation would not happen.

Fourchenault led the Scions to Labyrinthos where they learned from Kokkol Dankkol the problem: the aetherburner needed refined adamantite or something similar to become more efficient. G'raha realized he was talking about Allagan refined adamantite, and so Alphinaud contacted the many friends the Scions had made in their travels to collect as much adamantite and other aether-rich artifacts from around the world. In the meantime, the Scions helped the researchers with their problems alongside the Loporrits, who had come from the moon to help out.

Krile informed the Scions their order had arrived, and they were amazed how quickly and efficiently their friends had obtained the needed materials. Even Fourchenault could not deny this. He asked his children if they were truly prepared, since whatever was going to happen would decide the fate of the star. Alphinaud told him that they had seen firsthand, how bonds between people could make a difference and they were prepared not to abandon anyone to the Final Days. Fourchenault went to his knees and apologized to his children, welcoming them back to the family, and admitted they had already began to walk their own path. He claimed that he would not let the Final Days claim his children, and so did the only thing he thought that could be done: succeed with the exodus. He admitted that only his own father, Louisoix, gave him pause, but now that he saw the error of his ways he finally understood his father's words: "To ignore the plight of those one might conceivably save is not wisdom... it is indolence."

Fourchenault led the Scions to the Aitiascope where they could travel to the aetherial sea and meet Hydaelyn. At the core, they fought Amon, the future incarnation of Hermes and Fandaniel, who was dragged to oblivion by Asahi. They met Hydaelyn and Alisaie told her the reason they came; while Hydaelyn created the moon to save mankind from the Final Days, Alisaie said they did not wish to abandon the world or the other shards. Hydaelyn said that fleeing the star was only one out of two paths, the other being to defeat Meteion. Hydaelyn said to go to face Meteion unprepared is to go to one's doom. Alisaie admitted that she could not be sure courage and strength would be enough this time, but Hydaelyn assured her and the Scions that they had the strength to overcome despair, as they had already done. She said to Alisaie that her desire to help the powerless was what had made her grow strong. Hydaelyn nevertheless tested the Scions for their prowess in combat, because if they failed, there would not be another chance. The Scions defeated Hydaelyn, proving their strength, leaving Alisaie saddened as this meant Hydaelyn would perish, but she did not mind, because her defeat proved to her that mankind had attained the strength to carry on without her. She gave the Scions a crystal that contained the record of Meteion's location and also the Mothercrystal to provide the necessary aether to travel there. She imbued Warrior's crystal of Azem with her aether to give them temporary power to give form to the formless. Hydaelyn then returned to the aetherial sea with a smile.

Following the aversion of the Final Days, Alisaie joined her brother in Garlemald to assist with reconstruction and help the people deal with political agendas.

Alisaie and Alphinaud met with Warrior of Light, Estinien, Y'shtola, Vrtra, and their new companion Zero at Garlemald after Vrtra had briefly sensed his sister Azdaja's presence in the Source even if she should still be in the Thirteenth. Although Alisaie was at first wary about Zero due to her being the former avatar to Zenos, she took an instant liking to her when Zero claimed her time at Zenos's service angered her.

Alphinaud informed the companions that recently Garlemald has had an increase with voidsent attacks. So far they could determine, they were coming from mountains east of Garlemald where former Garlean reapers used to train. Unfortunately, the terrain was too difficult to traverse on foot.

Characteristics[]

Appearance[]

Alisaie from Final Fantasy XIV ARR render

Render of Alisaie in A Realm Reborn.

Alisaie is a sixteen-year-old[1] Elezen with white hair and blue eyes. She wears a large delta-shaped earring on her right ear and dark blue clothing that matches her brother's, distinguished by a red knot in her ponytail and purple markings on her collar. Though she carries a white grimoire, Alisaie mainly uses a magically conjured blade for a weapon.

Alisaie's lips are redder than Alphinaud's, and her hair style is horizontally mirrored to his. The twins become more distinctive in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward once Tataru Taru provides them with new outfits. Alisaie is given a tan trench coat with a gray cloak from the waist, silver pendant and gray knee-high boots. The siblings' identical appearance is poked fun at when Alisaie is mistaken for her brother by his female admirer during their learning years at home, and when Estinien Wyrmblood meets her for the first time, again mistaking her for Alphinaud and remarking on how "rugged" she has become.

In Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, Alisaie is given a more distinct outfit, with a bright red dress, white thigh-high boots, a small tan coat that covers her shoulders and arms, red accessories and a new rapier that reflects her status as a Red Mage. Alisaie's Red Mage weapon is a uniquely recolored version of the Hailstorm Rapier that can be purchased in Idyllshire. Though the augmented version can be dyed, it only affects the metallic parts of the weapon. After returning to the Source from the First, Alisaie returns to her original gear and clothing she wore in Heavensward and Stormblood.

In Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, Alisaie receives a new outfit comprised of a white short jumpsuit, a cropped leather jacket with a longer trail in the back, and thigh high white boots with armored kneepads. The look is accessorized by her red leather gloves, red belts on her waistline, and a large dark blue belt across her chest.

Personality[]

FFXIV SH Alisaie 2

Alisaie in Shadowbringers.

Alisaie is strong-willed, cynical and, at times, emotional. She is compassionate, concerned for a traumatized Koboldling that lost his parents, and leaving a bouquet of flowers in memory of her grandfather, Nael van Darnus, and Bahamut's children.

By her own admission, Alphinaud was always the more clever of the two while she is more direct. This distinction is most pronounced when she summons an aetherial blade to attack the Warriors of Darkness, rather than summoning a carbuncle like her brother. Unlike her brother, Alisaie had little interest in the affairs of the city-state's politics, tiring of their petty power struggles. She strikes out on her own while her brother joins the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, but upon reuniting she becomes more involved, especially with the missions against the Warriors of Darkness and to liberate Doma and Ala Mhigo.

Though Alisaie loathes politics, she has proven to be quite persuasive when negotiating, or at least when striking a deal. She has a humorous side, often teasing Alphinaud (in a similar vein to Krile) and making cynical comments. Although this seems like petty sibling rivalry, it shows that she knows and understands Alphinaud unlike anyone else. Alisaie resents being compared to her brother or being mistaken for a boy. She deeply cares for him as he does for her, and when Alphinaud goes missing during a diplomatic mission to Garlemald, Alisaie constantly worries for his whereabouts, even stating that should he die on her, she will never let him hear the end of it. From the latter parts of Stormblood through Shadowbringers, Alisaie becomes irritated by those around her and even defensive, angrily grabbing Alphinaud by his collar after jokes about seeing a bratty pixie as reminding him of his childhood, to sounding outright snappy when her idolism of the Warrior of Light is brought up in embarrassing context.

During her time in The First, Alisaie befriends Tesleen and Halric, two of the many light-corrupted patients at the Inn at Journey's Head who seek to live out their final days before becoming sin eaters in peace. It is implied that Alisaie's attachment to them and the other patients stems in part from her inability to help Ga Bu back in Eorzea. After witnessing Tesleen's transformation, Alisaie's determination to undo the Flood and aid the Warrior of Darkness in their struggle grows. If brought into Holminster Switch as part of a Trust, she will express sorrow at having to fight the corrupted Tesleen, wishing her peace after the battle.

Alisaie is the more pragmatic and direct of the two, most often concerned with the possible ramifications of a mission. Like Alphinaud, Alisaie greatly respects the Warrior of Light, and is especially grateful for their support during trying moments. She views the Scions' core members as close friends and cares greatly for their well-being.

Abilities[]

FFXIV Elisaie RDM

Alisaie with her Red Mage rapier.

According to her biography, Alisaie excels at two fields over her brother: fencing and swimming. During her journey Alisaie learns the art of Red Magic, applying her already admirable fencing abilities to the discipline, summoning aetherial blades from her grimoire.

Since her time on the First, Alisaie has developed the ability to summon a porxie-shaped familiar named Angelo, with whom she is able to channel large amounts of aether into and rebalance another person's own aether, thus relinquishing them from a primal's control.

Gameplay[]

FFXIV Alisaie RDM

Alisaie as a Red Mage in Stormblood.

Alisaie appears as an NPC ally and Trust party member in certain instanced duties. In Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, she carries an Arcanist codex, but never fights as an arcanist. In battles she functions as a Paladin, wielding an aetherial sword she summoned from her codex.

In the beginning of Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, Urianger gives her a new aetherial rapier. From that point onward, and throughout the entirety of Stormblood, Alisaie abandons the arcanist combat style and uses Red Mage abilities.

As one of the characters that can be used in the "Trust" system, introduced in the third expansion Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, she reprises the role of Red Mage, dealing magic damage while using healing and resurrection abilities if necessary. Fitting to her aggressive personality, Alisaie will use the "Limit Break" whenever it becomes available.

In the Main Scenario Quest instance, Death Unto Dawn, Alisaie is playable in the second part of the battle. Though she lacks the Mana Gauge, she is able to use the Enhanced version of the melee rotation as part of her Scorch combo while also being able to cast all of the four elemental spells as part of her Verflare Combo. She also has access to an AoE melee attack called Crimson Savior.

In the Endwalker Main Scenario, As the Heavens burn, Alisaie is playable and she has similar actions to before, but gaining Embolden, and her Limit Break, Vermillion's Pledge.

Scions of Shadow.

Ala Mhigo is at last free from imperial rule, but that liberty may prove fleeting as the Empire moves to both reclaim this bloodied nation and subjugate all of Eorzea. In their hour of need, however, they cannot turn to the Warrior of Light. Nor to the Scions, who yet slumber, their souls adrift. The realm is left to struggle without its saviors, for they have been beckoned beyond time and space─beckoned to the First.

Alisaie and Alphinaud are alluded to when the protagonist assumes that the Elrein race could be either Elezen or Elvaan.

Behind the scenes[]

Alphinaud and Alisaie's introductory appearance is only seen for new characters. This scene is cut for characters returning from 1.0, who will not see them until the Carteneau memorial.

Depending on the player's progress in the Coils of Bahamut, when talked to in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Alisaie may comment on the feat. If the player did not complete the Final Coils by the time of Soul Surrender story, Alisaie expresses that together they didn't find out much about the coils, avoiding spoilers for that storyline.

Voice[]

Alisaie is voiced by Rie Murakawa in the Japanese version.

She is voiced by Simone Bee in the English release of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and then by Bethan Walker from Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward onwards.
