Gahahaha! Thou art bold indeed to risk thy fleshy hide so readily! Very well. I, Ravana, fourfold master of the blade, do accept thy challenge!

Ravana

Ravana is a primal introduced in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. He is known as the savior of the Gnath.

Unlike other primals, Ravana was created for Final Fantasy XIV rather than being based on previous summons in the Final Fantasy series.

History[]

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Ravana was summoned into being when the Gnath's lust for war against the Dravanians reached a fever pitch as a consequence of a dragon wounded by the Ishgardians crashing into their nest. Ravana caused the Gnath belligerently attack the inhabitants of the Dravanian Forelands. The Warrior of Light and Ysayle, needing to see the dragon Hraesvelgr, challenged Ravana to a duel with the primal vowing to quell the Gnaths' bellicosity if defeated while having his opponents promise to become his servants should he be victorious. After a hard battle, Ysayle having been defeated in her Shiva form, the Warrior of Light triumphed and Ravana honored his promise to have the Gnath cease their campaign.

Ravana reappeared to battle the Warriors of Darkness, but was easily defeated.[1]

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers[]

Lunar Ravana

A unique form of Ravana was resummoned by Vath and Gnath alike who had been kidnapped by the Telophoroi. This version of Ravana was known as Lunar Ravana, and Alisaie Leveilleur and G'raha Tia defeated him.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

When the party used the spaceship Ragnarok to reach Ultima Thule, the beast tribes summoned benevolent iterations of their primals using the Mothercrystal, with Ravana being one of the ten summoned. He gave his power to the Ragnarok, allowing it to achieve the propulsion needed for the Scions of the Seventh Dawn and the Warrior of Light among them to reach their destination.

Etymology[]

Ravana (Sanskrit: रावण) is a legendary, demonic king of Sri Lanka, said to have ruled the island 6,000 years ago. He is shown to have ten heads and twenty arms. After attaining the graces and blessings of the Gods Brahma and Shiva, Ravana is made invulnerable to Gods, Demons, and Spirits. Humans are excluded since Ravana does not see them to be a threat. Ravana is the central villain of the Sanskrit epic Ramayana, in which he is depicted as reigning supreme over all of creation due to his immeasurable power, having subdued even the heavens; however, his downfall begins as he steals Sita, the wife of the hero, Rama, the God Vishnu in human form. Rama travels to Sri Lanka and defeats Ravana's army, then kills the demon king with an arrow targeted at his source of immortality.

His weapons, the Chandrahas, are based upon the sword said to wielded by Ravana upon being gifted to him from Shiva.
