Captain Carvallain de Gorgagne is a NPC from Final Fantasy XIV. He is the pirate captain of the Kraken's Arms. Since Admiral Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn restricted piracy, he has mostly been privateering goods from Garlean cargo ships, many of which are later resold at the Seventh Sage in Limsa Lominsa.
Carvallain is a wildwood Elezen garbed in a navy blue pirate outfit.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Edit
Carvallain is featured in a number of low-level Limsa Lominsa quests, and in many ways serves as backstory to the city-state's culture.
He has a rivalry with Rhoswen of the all-female pirate band, the Sanguine Sirens. Whereas she is crude and aggressive, Carvallain is mild-mannered (for a pirate), and prefers to use euphemisms (e.g. confiscated goods are often called "spices").
Like Rhoswen, he declines an invitation to join Alphinaud's Crystal Braves.
When the Maelstrom challenges the Warrior of Light to compete in their training grounds at Hullbreaker Isle, Carvallain participates in the contest. He challenges the Warrior of Light with Ymir, a monster he recently purchased. After the beast is defeated, he begrudgingly states that he seems to have wasted his money.
When the Scions of the Seventh Dawn require transportation to Othard in the Far East, they contact Carvallain. He is reluctant to help due to the lack of profitability for such a long trip. However, Tataru, having learned of his true identity while in Ishgard, blackmails him, forcing him to agree. After an encounter with monsters in The Sirensong Sea, he drops the Scions off at Kugane, the only port in Othard open to foreign ships.
- According to Tales from the Calamity, Carvallain had physically restrained Rhoswen when she initially ignored Merlwyb's order of retreat at Carteneau to keep attacking the VIIth legion.
- It is heavily implied that he is the lost son of House Durendaire of Ishgard, and that Jannequinard de Durendaire is his younger brother.
