Ser Janlenoux

Ser Janlenoux de Courcillant is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. He is a member of Heavens' Ward.


Early life[]

As Knighthood could not be passed from father to son, Ser Janlenoux, despite being the eldest son of a knight at twenty and four, earned his spurs like many others: through hard work and dedication. He and Ser Adelphel were brothers in arms, having shared the battlefield time and time again as sons of families pledged to House Durendaire.[1]

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Ser Janlenoux, alongside his fellow Heavens' Ward, joined Thordan VII in the Singularity Reactor, after the Warrior of Light defeated both Lahabrea and Igeyorhm. The knights transformed into the Knights of the Round and assisted King Thordan in combat against the Warrior of Light.

Upon defeat, Janlenoux and the other knights fell to the ground, and are encompassed in a swell of aetherical light.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

A man who had been recovering in Saint Vaindreau's Grace, a civilian hospital in the Firmament, succumbed to the corruption of dynamis between his aether, triggered by the coming Final Days.[2] The man, naming himself "Vaindreau", was an Allagan cloned body found within Azys Lla meant to be used to resummon King Thordan, but instead the souls of the Heavens' Ward awakened inside the body. He claimed himself to be a member of the Heavens' Ward, though he could not remember which soul in his thoughts was meant to be his. The hospital ward Loverick informed 'Vaindreau' of the death of the Heavens' Ward and Thordan VII, who in turn felt his purpose and place in the world null with no archbishop to protect. With their souls still tempered, Vaindreau escaped the hospital, wandering into the streets of Ishgard. He was noticed by Erenville right before his transformation into the blasphemy Profane Fafnir.

As the blasphemy, the souls of the Ward flew low over Ishgard, near the roofs of the Vault, taking refuge near the crashed airship they had used to previously flee Azys Lla, the personal airship of Thordan VII before his death. Aymeric de Borel summnoned Profane Fafnir to the Vault's summit, who used the archbishop's coronet to call forth "his knights". Aymeric, Artoirel de Fortemps, and the Warrior of Light fought the blasphemy to lay the memory and souls of Janlenoux and his fellow knights to rest.



Ser Janlenoux is a Wildwood Elezen with long light purple hair. His right eye is a dark blue, while his left is a light gray with a scar cut down his eyelid. He wears Ward Knight's attire, which is a form of pure white Adamantite armor with dark blue trimmings and bears his order's crest. In battle he wields the sword Ultimum, a steel square cleaver with ornate engravings and gold & blue hilt accents.

Though he does not wield his weapon with the same flair as Ser Adelphel, Ser Janlenoux of the Steel Oath is just as deadly with a blade. He is also skilled with a chef's knife as a devoted student of the culinary arts, often preparing scrumptious meals for his comrades at home and at camp. When not on duty, he can often be found in a small corner of the Vault's kitchens where he practices his second craft. His friends agree that if he had not elected to become a knight, he could have made a name for himself as a culinarian.[1]


Ser Janlenoux is fought during as one of King Thordan's knights in The Singularity Reactor The Singularity Reactor and Dragonsong's Reprise (Ultimate) Dragonsong's Reprise (Ultimate).
