Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Broken Mountain is a Hellsguard Roegadyn with reddish skin and bright red hair. Similar in appearance to his younger brother, Curious Gorge, he wears a full set of Warrior battle garb during A Realm Reborn. He wears more scholarly robes and uses a tome in battle during Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Introduced as the main antagonist in the beginning of the Warrior questline, Broken Mountain's personality is little more than an enraged warrior prior to his defeat. Heavensward reveals his true personality as a patient and wise elder brother, encouraging his younger sibling's growth as a Warrior. He is wise and cautious.

Story[edit | edit source]

Broken Mountain succumbed to the uncontrollable Rage of the Inner beast, causing almost irreparable damage to his tribe's Warrior reputation across generations. His brother has followed Broken Mountain's trail, leading to a battle at Wineport, where Broken Mountain is defeated. Not long after, Curious Gorge succumbs to the same affliction and the Warrior of Light must defeat him.

In Heavensward, Broken Mountain is recovered and been meticulously studying his people's tomes to discover the secrets of controlling the inner beast. He tries to repair his brother's wounded Warrior spirit who has been saddled with doubt ever since the events at Wineport.

Together with the Warrior of Light and Curious Gorge, Broken Mountain assists in defending Limsa Lominsa from the rising Sahagin threat. Rather than wielding an axe, he uses scholarly abilities. The victory impresses the Storm Marshal Eynzahr who encourages the brothers to train the Maelstrom members in the ways of the Warrior. Their dreams of repairing their tribe's reputation and spreading their ancestor's teachings are realized.
