Early life[edit | edit source]

Radovan was forced to serve Garlemald as a military conscript with no other choice as his family was being held hostage. [1] While off in another province Radovan disobeyed a direct order and was thrown in a garlean gaol. Like many of the inmates he was fitted with a magitek shock collar, that the wardens could use anytime they pleased. [2] After sometime in confinement he was approached by Vitus quo Messalla leader of the Alaudae, who offered him a chance to be free if he worked under him. Unwilling to serve Garlemald once again Radovan refused and was tortured relentlessly leaving him with a condition of paralysis that would return to him at random times.

Over the course of ten years Radovan dug a few inches every night but ended up going the wrong way and ended up in Sophie's cell. After he broke through her wall it caused a commotion in the gaol and the two used the racket to escape. After being freed Radovan planned on returning to his family only to find out that Bozja Citadel was destroyed in the early stages of project Meteor. Unable to deal with his grief Radovan planned to end his life, only to be stopped by Sophie. With a newfound purpose Sophie and Radovan fled Garlean territory and into Eorzea.
