Final Fantasy XIV (version 1.0)[]

Greinfarr in version 1.0.

Greinfarr was one of Niellefresne's companions during a parade in Ul'dah situated to make them look heroic to the townspeople. The situation got out of hand when a goobbue broke free from its restraints and mortally wounded a man named Warburton.[1] Later, Thancred unmasked Niellefresne's plan. Corguevais revealed the truth to Ascilia, Warburton's daughter, and tried to take the girl back to Ala Mhigo.

Niellefresne's group intercepted the flight of Corguevais, who fled after summoning a horde of coblyns, abandoning Ascilia to the beasts. While Popokkuli and Seserukka chased after Corguevais, Greinfarr remained to defend the group. They discovered that Warburton had important information regarding Ul'dah's future, so Niellefresne resorted to necromancy in an attempt to revive him, but was murdered by a mysterious figure before being able to do so.[2]

Greinfarr and J'moldva battle at the Coliseum.

During the battle, the audience got out of control and J'moldva, considered a traitor to her people, ended up seriously injured. With no choice, Greinfarr carried her to Gridania in search of treatment, where she found a new life.[3]

He accepted the sword, proclaiming that one day he would be at the top of the Coliseum and do justice, and left without meeting J'moldva.[4]
