Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Alisaie is a sixteen-year-old Elezen with white hair and blue eyes. She wears a large delta-shaped earring on her right ear and dark violet 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, being female and possibly wearing lipstick. 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.
In Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, Alisaie is seventeen years old and 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.
Personality[edit | edit source]
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[edit | edit source]
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.
Story[edit | edit source]
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.
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 tha 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, applying her already admirable fencing abilities to the discipline. However, more common rapiers were unable to suit her, so she resorted to summoning aetherial blades from her grimoire instead.
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.
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.
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 defeat the sin eater leading the charge, the Lightwarden Philia, who dissolved into light, which was absorbed by the Warrior. Instead of transforming into a new warden, the Warrior appeared to extinguish the light, and the clouds of of light 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 travelled to Azys Lla with the Warrior 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 was able to cure Ga Bu of his tempering. From there, Alisaie’s 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.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
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.
