Ejika Tsunjika is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy XIV. He is one of the survivors from the Isle of Val and a fellow student with Krile.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Ejika is a Lalafell with long gray hair and pink eyes. He wears black oval shaped glasses, a Shire preceptor's coat dyed white, and black boots. He carries a Palladium thaumaturge rod on his back.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Ejika is intelligent and knowledgeable about aetherology, but is rude and difficult to work with. He dislikes Krile because of her gift in the Echo and others like her, as he believes those with natural born gifts have it easier than those who don't. He is still willing to work with her, understanding the value in well-read allies. Ejika is impatient, and always eager to see the results of a hypothesis or an experiment as soon as possible.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood[edit | edit source]

The Isle of Val—now known as Eureka—is discovered on the other corner of the world.[1] Ejika joins the Eurekan expedition, determined to study the rediscovered island. He arrives accompanied by Krile and the Warrior of Light, but leaves the pair to do his own searching. While Krile and the Warrior of Light attempt to restore the region's Aethernet, Ejika searches for survivors and investigates the confluence in the region's aether stream, discovering magicite. When he reconvenes with the Warrior of Light, he gives them the magicite to study. Ejika leaves the two, continuing his own investigation.

within the snowy region of Pagos, after the Warrior of Light finds all the magicite located in the area, Ejika suggests that the expedition's next objective should be to seek a proto-aetheryte to grant them greater insight into the state of Eureka's aether currents.[2] After the Warrior of Light tells everyone about their vision, Ejika wanders off on his own to ponder it and runs into a masked man, questioning who or what they are. It introduces itself as Eureka.

Throughout the expedition Ejika acts strange, and when Krile and the Warrior of Light inspect the proto-aetheryte they discover, Ejika turns it off.[3] Ejika is possessed by the primal, and given a blade of pure aether. When Krile calls him out, he hesitates but says he welcomed the primal into his being and will await Krile within the Tower. When Krile and the Warrior of Light make into the Baldesion headquarters, they remove the primal's restraints, and when they return to the main hall, Ejika and the avatar of Eureka appear.[4] Eureka demands Ejika remove them, and Krile calls to Ejika to come to his senses. Ejika was only pretending to be under the primal's thrall, and gives the blade to the Warrior of Light to defeat its avatar. Eureka still remains, and Krile plans on resealing it though Ejika wants to sacrifice his being to defeat the primal, letting the Warrior of Light choose which path to take. Whatever decision they make still requires them to journey into the Baldesion Arsenal to destroy the primal weapons to weaken Eureka itself.

After dealing with Eureka, Ejika continues researching the island and taking care of matters with Rowena and Hancock, to determine what the island will be used for.
