Final Fantasy Wiki

The Bozjan Resistance is a insurgent group in Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers that seek to reclaim Bozja and drive the IVth Imperial Legion from their lands. The main headquarters of this group is in Gangos, located on the southern shores of Ilsabard.



Some resistance groups were formed in the initial phases of the meteor project but were put down until others heard of Ala Mhigo and Doma rising up against the empire and successfully driving them away. The resistance was assisted by Hien to form an effective group and Bajsaljen was chosen as its leader. The Eorzean Alliance as well as eastern allies have armed them with provisions as well as arms to defend themselves with. [1]

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers[]

In order to rally more of their scattered countrymen to the cause, the Resistance, at the behest of archaeologist Misija Votyasch, sought to revive the Blades of Gunnhildr, the royal guards of Queen Gunnhildr, founder of Bozja, by reforging the legendary weapons that were wielded by them long ago. Seeking assistance from their allies, Gerolt Blackthorn and Mikoto Jinba aid the resistance by attempting to utilize a treatment regarding memory that Bozjan sages used to deal with truama to help find the holy inscriptions that gave the weapons their power. [2]

Unable to make any headway, the Warrior of Light is called for assistance by Mikoto as they are more talented in the echo and could help with a breakthrough. After successfully testing the memory treatment on Gerolt, it is determined Cid Garlond would be a prime candidate for the procedure, as he might have memory of the weapon inscriptions. Following the procedure on Cid, the inscriptions are received and Gerolt begins his work on the weapons.[3] The newly reforged weapons are then handed to chosen members of the Resistance, who take the name Gunnhildr's Blades, and Bajsaljen presents the reformed Blades of Gunnhildr to his people, rallying more soldiers to join the cause. With a now sizeable force and morale at a high, plans are made and set in motion to strike at Castrum Lacus Litore, the foothold of the IVth Imperial Legion.

The Warrior of Light is called to the Bozjan Southern Front, and infiltrates the region in order to assist with the war effort and recharge the crystal focus, which Misija claims will be needed as soon as possible to deal with the soldiers' traumatic memories. After completing the objective however, Misija reveals herself as a mole for the IVth Legion and kidnaps Mikoto, subsequently interrogating her at Castrum Lacus Litore. After the Warrior of Light and the Resistance storm the stronghold and defeat Lyon the Beast King and his powerful beast Dawon, Misija forces Mikoto and the adventurer to use the crystal focus to take them to the memories of the blade Save the Queen, revealing that Queen Gunnhildr became a vessel of a primal and was killed by her guards when she didn't become corrupted by its power. Misija appears inside the vision and alters the Queen's memories, awakening the Eikon and summoning her in reality. The Gunnhildr Eikon enthralls the Blades, who turn on their former comrades, but before the primal can enslave the rest, Bwagi appears and shoots Misija on the shoulder, giving the Warrior of Light and the Resistance an opportunity to escape.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

The Bozjans participated in the Ilsabard contingent to fight the Telophoroi in Garlemald, with Rostik Liubasch leading both their own forces and the Dalmascans'. Later they sent Allagan relics to Sharlayan to aid in the construction of the Ragnarok, a ship capable of space travel.
