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

History[]

Early life[]

Ser Noudenet was the third son of a baron from the Coerthas Central Lowlands, was sent to study at Saint Endalim's Scholasticate so that his family would have one less mouth to feed. His father and brother hoped he would gain a position as a senior clergyman, securing them political leverage. However, Ser Noudenet had little interest in the power struggles within the Holy See and instead devoted himself to aetheric research. His familiarity with the subject earned him the attention of the Heavens' Ward, who extended to him an invitation, although he was only one year older than Ser Adelphel de Chevraudan, at the age of twenty and three.[1]

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Ser Noudenet, 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, Noudenet and the other knights fell to the ground, and are encompassed in a swell of aetheric 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, instead causing the souls of the Heavens' Ward to awaken inside the body. He claimed to be a member of the Heavens' Ward, though he could not remember exactly 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 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. Profane Aymeric de Borel summoned 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 Noudenet and his fellow knights to rest.

Characteristics[]

Appearance[]

Ser Noudenet is a Wildwood Elezen with blond hair and blue eyes, with several scars across his face, including one over his left eye. He wears a brass circlet on his head as well as Ward's Mage attire, which is a Halonic alb in the white and blue of his order, with its insignia on his robes. In battle he wields the conjurer's arm Imagination, a staff made of silver with a head in the shape of an axe. Several icicle-like blue crystal spikes reach from the staff head.

Personality[]

To Ser Noudenet the Wise, magic is the Fury's greatest blessing, and he would judge any man by his arcane aptitude. He does not hesitate to critique his brother knights' techniques—yawning at Ser Haumeric's lackluster ice conjury on one occasion. Yet he compliments Ser Hermenost's method of infusing his battleaxe with lightning, and genuinely respects Ser Charibert's hellfire explosions—and much prefers to view them at distance.[1]
