Clarrice

Clarricie quo Priscus also known as Clarricie the Resplendent, is a non-player character from Final Fantasy XIV. She appears in the Bozjan Southern Front as a Beastmaster centurion of the IVth Imperial Legion.

History[]

Clarricie was born as one of the Eschva, a nomadic people that wandered across borders in the olden days. When the Garlean Empire came, they refused to settle, leading Legatus Noah van Gabranth to propose a compromise: they could maintain their itinerant lifestyle on the condition they volunteered a dictated number of their strongest men to serve in the imperial army for a fixed period of time. The Eschva accepted these terms, and Clarricie's newlywed husband was one of those chosen to serve. A formidable beastmaster in his own right, he was recruited into Lyon rem Helsos's contingent, but lost his life on his very first mission─just months after he and Clarricie swore their vows.

Feeling a strong sense of responsibility and pity for the poor girl, Lyon personally paid her a visit in Gabranth's stead, apologizing her beloved had died under his watch. Lamenting the thought of any other Eschva women being widowed as she had been, she entreated Lyon to accept her into his ranks in her husband's place, a petition which the Beast King was all too happy to accept. Since that day, Clarricie wears the masks of both a witch and a saint, fighting for her husband's honor and memory, and to achieve an era of peace for her people that her beloved will never see.[1]

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers[]

Near Utya's Aegis on the Bozjan Southern Front, Clarricie releases a large swarm of spirulina plants to feed on the flesh of resistance soldiers before gloating and walking away. Near the ruins of The Last Trace, a detachment led by Clarricie find the traitor Llofii and the escaped monoceros that was being experimented on for its arcane abilities. After a few groups of her soldiers are put down, Clarricie appears on the field of battle with a lion and coeurl. She tells her troops to take care in not harming the monoceros but can give their all in killing Lloffi. She is pushed back by Llofii and Bozjan Resistance members, retreating to a position nearby Camp Steva. She appears with a few of her exotic beasts including the giant bird Feathered Rainbow, along with a contingent of mages and soldiers. She is pushed back by Marsak and more resistance soldiers, with her beasts and soldiers being killed in battle.

Clarricie retreats with the IVth Imperial Legion to the Northern Plateau of Zadnor. Upon the Northern Plateau Clarricie along with her beast Lyuba are approached by Bajsaljen and resistance soldiers, where she asks if they are there to provide enrichment for her newest companion. She states that Lyuba enjoys stomping around and hearing the sound of crushing bone. Bajsaljen tells her to save her grisly threats and the two forces do battle. Although the mammoth put up a challenge for the resistance, it is killed in battle and Clarricie is defeated, questioning why she is down in the dirt and not her enemies. She finds a chance to sneak away and the resistance gives chase before Bajsaljen orders them to stop as she could be luring them into a trap.

Following the IVth Imperial Legions defeat at Zadnor, it is unknown where Clarricie ends up.

Personality[]

Clarricie's portrait in Field Record.

Countless stories are told about Clarricie. Some call her a witch, saying they have observed her speaking to her pets in unholy, bestial tongues the likes of which have never been uttered by mortal mouths─indeed, that the monstrosities in her charge obey her every command because she herself is one of them. Others claim this is but a lie spread by those looking to smear her name, and that Clarricie is rather a saint, a figure of surpassing compassion and charity who tends to her wounded pets and comrades with self-sacrificing love and devotion, fighting to protect them as if she were the warrior goddess Gradia herself.

Perhaps both tales are true, and whether Clarricie appears as a witch or a saint depends on the eye of the beholder. What cannot be denied are the nigh-countless triumphs she has claimed in war, and the profound fear she strikes into the heart of any foe unfortunate enough to meet her dangerously alluring gaze on the battlefield. Clarrice is said to be difficult to understand as well as ostentatious.[1]
