Jandelaine, when summoned
Jandelaine is a minor non-playable character in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Known throughout Eorzea as the "Aesthetician", he performs beauty makeovers. Jandelaine is encountered in the side-quest "Beauty is Only Scalp Deep". He later appears in the Postmoogle side-quest "Of Siblings and Side-whiskers".
The Aesthetician services tweak cosmetic features for a fee of 2,000 gil, including access to some exclusive hairstyles not available at character creation. These functions include adjusting hairstyle and color, eyebrows, tattoos and tattoo color, facial features (e.g. scars), face paint, and lip color. More complex adjustments (such as face type or eyes) require the use of a Fantasia potion. Jandelaine's services cannot be used in the First.

Appearance[edit | edit source]
Jandelaine is a flamboyant Elezen with peach and lilac hair. His appearance alludes to the character design of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, as he dresses in the extravagant style the manga is known for and does many of its signature poses, including those of Dio Brando, Josuke Higashikata, Noriaki Kakyoin, Joseph Joestar, and Killer Queen.
Story[edit | edit source]
Jandelaine is met in in Limsa Lominsa, depressed over losing his beauty care tools. The adventurer must procure replacements from various guilds to snap him out of his depression, and Jandelaine enthusiastically promotes his services, giving a nearby frumpy looking Lalafell woman a makeover. As way of thanks, he gives the adventurer a voucher and offers to make service calls to any inn whenever they desire a touch-up.
Jandelaine's brother, Guillefresne, is trying to get him to return to Ishgard as heir to their noble house, which shares ancestry with House Dzemael. When confronted, Jandelaine gives him a makeover granting him a regal appearance, instilling him with the confidence to take the place as family heir, while understanding Jandelaine's reasons for remaining the Aesthetician. The adventurer receives a second Jandelaine Token as a reward for aiding the brothers in their understanding.
