Final Fantasy XIV (version 1.0)
Percevains and his companions could be seen several times walking around the Walking Sands but they did not interact directly with the adventurer. Eventually the adventurer and his path companion set out on a mission to help the Sylphs rescue podlings from the Garleans. When the mission was nearly completed, Percevains and his companions appeared on the scene and demanded that the adventurer reveal all his progress as they were going to take over the mission.
Following the Calamity, memories about Percevains's party were erased from everyone's mind, including those who were their own companions. Once Una Tayuun returns to the Walking Sands, she discovers that the Path of the Twelve has become the Scions of the Seventh Dawn and the headquarters has been moved to Vesper Bay. Arriving at the new Walking Sands, no one remembers her. Eventually Una Tayuun is reunited with Percevains and briefly later with Satzfloh. The trio gradually begin to reminisce about each other's memories but are unable to prove that they were once members of the Path of the Twelve.
Seeing the new adventurers who began frequenting the Walking Sands, Una Tayuun believed the time had come for her and her companions to retire. But soon after this, Livia sas Junius led a Garlean raid on the Walking Sands and Percevains and his companions were killed trying to defend the headquarters. After their death, their bodies were taken to be buried in Church of Saint Adama Landama's lichyard in Eastern Thanalan.
Due to their few interactions with the player, little is known of the personality of Una Tayuun and her companions. In version 1.0 they were rude and seemed to act like delinquents, in A Realm Reborn Una Tayuun says they were "thick as thieves".
An undead version of Percevains called the Bloated Pugilist can appear randomly on the floors of The Palace of the Dead.
