Ser Vellguine

Ser Vellguine de Bourbagne is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. He is the oldest and longest-serving member of the Heavens' Ward.

History[]

Early life[]

Known as the Unbreakable Stone Spear for his stern and solemn disposition, Ser Vellguine was the second hand to the former Very Reverened Archimandrite Ser Vaindreau de Rouchemande[2], and was expected to become the next archimandrite following his death. Believing himself to be better suited to his current position, he declined the archbishop's offer and recommended Ser Zephirin assume the role.[1][3]

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Ser Vellguine, 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.

Upon defeat, Vellguine and the other knights fell to the ground, and were encompassed in a swell of aetherical 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.[4] The man, naming himself "Vaindreau", was an Allagan cloned body found within Azys Lla meant to be used to resummon King Thordan, but instead the souls of the Heavens' Ward awoke inside it. 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 in turn 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 rooftops 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. Aymeric de Borel summoned Profane 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 Vellguine and his fellow knights to rest.
