Commander Goodman's wife, who waits for him patiently in his residence in Hartschild. She seems just as good-natured as her husband.

D's Journal description.

Eleanor Goodman (エレオノーレ・グッドマン, Ereonōre Guddoman?) is a non-playable character in Bravely Default and Bravely Second: End Layer. She is Daniel Goodman's wife, and is indirectly affiliated with the Shieldbearers.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Eleanor is a 38 year old woman with blonde hair in a hi-top bun. She wears a green blouse tied with a white bow and has a white collar and burgundy sleeves. She wears burgundy pants and a brown belt wrapped around her right leg.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Eleanor is a very caring and thoughtful woman and a very faithful wife. She shows great hospitality to her house guests, as she prefers company. Both she and her husband are well liked for their congenial nature.

According to D's Journal, Eleanor likes potato gratin just like her husband, and does not like an empty home, owing much to the fact that her husband is rarely at home due to his work.

Chapter 3[edit | edit source]

Entry #1

Added after resting at the Goodman residence in Hartschild

At the Shieldbearers' command post, Commander Goodman gave us permission to stay in Hartschild. Led by Datz, we were greeted by Goodman's lovely wife. She said as companions of the wind vestal we would be guests of state. Apparently she made an excellent home-cooked meal, despite the wartime rationing. For personal reasons, I was not able to try it...

Entry #2

Added after leaving Egil at the Goodman residence in Hartschild

Eleanor took in Egil, who had nowhere else to go. She was adamant that he should not end up in the military, but worried whether he would listen, given that both his late parents served as guards. We could not afford to risk taking a child with us on our journey to awaken the crystals...

Entry #3

Added after offering to bring Egil to Caldisla

Egil had apparently been looking forward to our arrival since the morning. This may have foreshadowed the fact that Eleanor would soon be left alone once again. She bid farewell to Egil, accepting that leaving was his decision to make. I admired her for having his best interests at heart.

Entry #4

Added after visiting the Goodman residence after bringing Egil to Caldisla

One day we found Commander Goodman in his residence for a change. He said the wind vestal had invited him to a banquet, and he had brought two of his officers with him. Eleanor was elated to have him home. However, Agnès had sent no such invitation. Their servant was murdered, and then the front door was sealed shut! Very mysterious...

Entry #5

Added after questioning everyone about the murder mystery

We questioned everyone who remained in the commander's residence. Nobody was free from suspicion. Eleanor decided to pour everyone tea, but soon after, the Shieldbearers' Officer Saranish Steiner dropped dead from poison. Eleanor could not escape falling under suspicion, and she was locked up in the dungeon below.

Entry #6

Added after defeating Kikyo at the Goodman residence in Hartschild

The culprit was the Black Blades' ninja Konoe Kikyo, who had disguised herself as the slain servant! She tried to take the commander's life, but we stopped her in time. Unfortunately, others had already fallen victim to her plot.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Eleanor is a given name derived from the Provençal name Aliénor, which became Eléanor or Eleonore in the northern Langue d'oïl, and from there also to English. The name probably originates as that of Eleanor of Aquitaine (1120s–-1204) who was the daughter of Aénor de Châtellerault. It has been suggested that having been baptized Aenor after her mother, she was called alia Aenor, i.e. "the other Aenor" in childhood and would have kept that name; the name Aénor itself appears to be a Latinization of a Germanic name of uncertain form.
