Story[edit | edit source]
In the Thirteenth, Igeyorhm's victory over the inexperienced Bringer of Light flooded the world in darkness and rendered it a nigh-empty void. The Ascians deemed the Thirteenth unable to be rejoined with Hydaelyn, as its surviving denizens transformed into voidsent. Igeyorhm sought to redeem herself by aiding Lahabrea in preparing Hydaelyn for their agenda.
Igeyorhm watches the Warrior of Light defeat the primal Ravana, and is seen again in the company of Archbishop Thordan VII after the fall of Bismarck, where she notes the Blessing of Light has been regained at weaker intensity. Using a dark energy beam, she forces the Warrior of Light to relinquish the key to Azys Lla, enabling the archbishop to open the way to the forbidden continent.
Tell me: why do you despise the primals so? They are the embodiment of mortal will—of mortal desire. Plainly, you desire a foe to despise. And 'tis well that you do, for it is from the vortex of ceaseless conflict that Lord Zodiark shall be reborn.
At the bottom of the Aetherochemical Research Facility, Igeyorhm and Lahabrea confront the Warrior of Light. After being overwhelmed by the Warrior's strength and fully reactivated Blessing, they fuse into an Ascian Prime who is defeated and separates, with Igeyorhm suggesting they flee. The Warrior of Light traps her in a shard of White Auracite before using the immense powers of the Eye of Nidhogg to shatter the crystal, destroying Igeyohrm for good.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Igeyorhm and Lahabrea are fought as the penultimate boss of Heavensward, at the end of the Aetherochemical Research Facility. After reduced to half health, they fuse into the powerful Ascian Prime.Igeyorhm's Shade appears as an add along with Lahabrea's Shade in The Minstrel's Ballad: Hades's Elegy, during the second part of the second phase. They repeat the same mechanics seen in the Aetherochemical Research Facility. Upon being defeated, they fuse into Ascian Prime's Shade.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
"Igeyohrm" refers to the light scion "Martyr Igeyohrm" referred to in the profile of Shemhazai from Final Fantasy XII. The glyph that appears when Igeyohrm is channeling magic is almost identical to the bottom portion of Shemhazai's, only inverted.
