Like any wound, a broken heart will heal if but given time.

Lamitt

Lamitt, also known as the The Devout of Darkness (闇の導師, Yami no Dōshi?, lit. High Priest of Darkness), is a character from Final Fantasy XIV. She is a member of the the Warriors of Darkness, serving as their healer.

During her time on the the Source, Lamitt went under the alias of Lamimi (ラミミ, Ramimi?), to match with the naming conventions lalafells use on the shard.

History[]

Early life[]

Lamitt meets Ardbert.

Lamitt left Tomra to search for a way to save her sister and others village from a disease known as Stoneblight. During the journey Lamitt found Ardbert on the brink of death after being ambushed by hobgoblin and healed his wounds. Realizing that her healing powers would make it easier for him to deal with the hobgoblin, Ardbert asked Lamitt to join the group. After the hobgoblin's defeat, Lamitt joined Ardbert's mission, becoming the first of his friends.

Later, the Warriors of the Light of the First traveled to ancient Ronkan ruins to find a magick able to cure it, and Lamitt was gifted a crystal of light. Once she returned to the village, the elder was furious and exiled her. Ardbert tried to defend her only for the elder to shut him down. Lamitt accepted her punishment and those formerly stoneblighted decided to leave with her. Ardbert comforted her by saying he was glad she was there, helmet or no.

Lamitt and the others traveled across the realm vanquishing evil, coming to blows with one of their own, Cylva, who revealed herself as the Shadowkeeper and ally to the Ascians. Ardbert spared her life, unable to kill someone he could call a close friend. They turned their weapons against the Ascians, Mitron and Loghrif. With their deaths a Flood of Light came crashing down on their world, eradicating all life in its wake. The Ascian Elidibus offered them a chance to save their world by journeying to the Source, telling them that by causing a Calamity there they could halt the Flood on the First. Doing so would require them to sacrifice their corporeal forms, leaving them as souls that would nonetheless have a physical and tangible presence.

The Warriors of Darkness.

With Elidibus's help, the warriors arrived on the moon of the Source world where Zodiark laid dormant. To save their world, a shard of the Source world known as the First, the Ascian told the warriors they must sow chaos by slaying primals and, should they come across them, the Source's Warrior of Light. To that end, each of Ardbert's party became a Warrior of Darkness. To blend in with the unfamiliar world, each took up a pseudonym, Lamitt calling herself Lamimi.

Their first primal encounter was against Ravana. They encountered the Warrior of Light and their companions, and introduced themselves by fighting them. Thanks to the timely intervention of a skilled Rogue, the group retreated, but not before revealing who they were. Sometime later, the Warriors of Darkness were told of the summoning of a primal at the top of Xephatol with a new masked mage at their side. They were too late as the Warrior of Light had slain the priest who attempted the summoning, accompanied by a familiar-looking youth.

No matter how many times we fall, we must rise and carry on the fight. For those we left behind.

A final confrontation at the Bowl of Embers revealed to the Warrior of Light and their companions n the Scions of the Seventh Dawn that the Warriors of Darkness had offered up their lives in their own world to travel here. When they began to use their crystals of light, the Warrior of Light drew upon their own and transported them all to the realm of Goddess Hydaelyn. Here Ardbert attempted to strike down Minfilia when she offered to save the First, but was stopped, and promised to return to the First with her. Before he left, he told the Warrior of Light to take a different path than the one they had chosen.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers[]

Back in the First, Minfilia used the souls of the Warriors of Darkness to stop the Flood of Light, except for Ardbert's. Lamitt's body became Cardinal Virtue Sophrosyne, a powerful sin eater who was still healing the exiled dwarves who had been caught by the Flood of Light and transformed into sin eaters.

Sophrosyne.

Once the Warrior of Light traveled to Norvrandt, he assisted Giott on her journey to hunt Sophrosyne and learned about Lamitt's past through Echo. Once Sophrosyne was defeated, she left behind her damaged crystal, which resonated, manifesting Lamitt's memories. Giott called out to her, though she was long beyond hearing, desperate to assure her that her legacy was not forgotten. And while the real Lamitt may not have known that, someday, one among her kin would at last recognize her for the noble woman she had been. Her shade's words made clear that she was, at least, at peace with her sacrifice in the end.

After the Ascian Emet-Selch's defeat, the spirits of Lamitt and the other Warriors of Darkness appeared one last time in Crystarium to be reunited with the spirit of Ardbert.

Personality[]

In her youth Lamitt differed from other dwarves, travelling from beyond her village and joining with those of other races. She has a strong sense of justice and will do anything to help those in need, even if it means facing punishment from the elders in her village.

When traveling with Ardbert and her compatriots in the past, Lamitt served the role of a compassionate mother to the party, often listening to her friends' troubles and attempted to comfort them. She is secretly in love with Ardbert, and longs for him to reciprocate those feelings. [2]
