Final Fantasy Wiki

Kester Ironheart is an Eorzean explorer that appears in Final Fantasy XIV. He is the grandson of famed explorer Roddard Ironheart and an explorer in his own right. Near the end of the Dragonsong War, while staying in Tailfeather in the Dravanian Forelands, Kester meets the Warrior of Light and recognises them as the adventurer his cousin Millith had mentioned in passing as one with a passion for exploring and had granted them her sightseeing log. Seeking to share more sightseeing vistas with the adventurer, Kester updates their sightseeing log with rumours and descriptions, adding new vistas to be found in Dravania, the Abalathia's Spine, and the greater Coerthas area.



Kester is a Midlander Hyur with fair skin and brown hair of average height. He sports a thin moustache and, like his relative Ulger, wears a specially dyed Wyvernskin Jerkin.


Kester is enthusiastic about exploring and often forgets himself when speaking of exploration or vistas. He feels a strong calling for harsh environs, feeling that such beckon him there.

Behind the scenes[]

Kester and his family are an extended reference to Gwynham Ironheart from Final Fantasy XI, a historical explorer that mapped much of Vana'diel.
