Yuraisha is a supporting character in Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. Under the title as the Mother of Hess, she is the leader of the Hess people and a major figure during the Paladian civil war, fought for her people's independence from Aldore. Yuraisha was thus the leader of Hess' Eight Sages.
Yuraisha resembles an elderly woman roughly between middle age and advanced age in appearance. She is always seen wearing long blue robes with several rich adornments. Her hair is lightly blond. She like many other characters has also gone through immortal procedure so she has stopped aging despite being over 700 years old.
Yuraisha is a caring and extremely charismatic person. Although she was forced to go to war against Aldore she was always concerned with the sacrifices that would surely occur and was able to lead many into her cause. Although Yuraisha would not rule out diplomacy to solve problems, it is hinted that she was stubborn enough that she wouldn't accept nothing short of certain guarantees. Raegen somewhat blamed this part of her as a reason of why the war broke out as it did.
She is looked up to as a leader by many and he herself cares greatly about her subordinates and those who she leads or otherwise those who request her aid.
Yuraisha was the mother of Rowen and a maternal figure to Raegen having raised them both. At some point Yuraisha leading Hess as its "Mother" decided to declare independence from Aldore which the latter rejected. Raegen as leader of the Sworn Eight of Paladia would be sent in several diplomatic missions to try to reach an agreement with Yuraisha. Unfortunately all of them failed as Yuraisha did not accept the terms proposed which eventually led to the infamous war. Raegen would partially blame this event on her while standing against her in the war. Her own son Rowen would stand besides her as one of the Eight Sages.
As the war waged with Hess on a military disadvantage, they would request the help of several Espers who gladly joined their cause. Bahamut was one of them and it is largely hinted that Yuraisha was able to convince them. In due time she formed Hess' Eight Sages as her lieutenants where she would hold meetings with them to discuss the war. In one such meeting Sol requested to be sent to the frontlines. Yuraisha wondered if he didn't feel fear, to which he responded that he lacked emotions and wanted to fight in the war in order to be able to bring those emotions out, something Yuraisha said he would.
When Aldore was able to develop Magitek the scales of the war turned on their favour. This along with the eventual sealing of the Sages into Crystal would secure Aldore's victory. Paladia would thus be formed from the inclusion of Hess into Aldore.
However when the Sworn Eight were betrayed by the leaders of Aldore and expelled into Lapis, Yuraisha would be sentenced to a life of eternal imprisonment. Her legacy would remain strongly unto the descendants of Hess who would live in seclusion and calling themselves the Children of Hess would try to rebuild Hess and attempt to rescue her.
During their travels to Crystallis, the Sworn Six of Paladia encountered members of the Children of Hess who after testing their character through questions and battle would request their aid to rescue Yuraisha who was imprisoned in Runferia Castle. Raegen himself was surprised that she was alive and tried to rescue her, thinking that her help would be invaluable along with his own personal feelings.
The group would venture into the castle and slay a powerful monster who took residence there who attacked them. Upon reaching deep into the castle they would find Yuraisha chained and weakened. Although Folka would restore her back to health, Yuraisha declared that her immortality was reaching its end and her time was limited. She surprised and rejoiced to see Raegen again and wondered about the Eight Sages to which he responded that a few of them are still alive. The Children of Hess were shocked that Hess' royal blood would die and with it any chance to rebuild Hess. Raegen however reassured Yuraisha that the royal bloodline still lived for she had a grandson called Lasswell.
Yuraisha appears a 5-7★ summonable unit, though currently available in the Japanese version. She is a 'buffer', able to greatly boost the party's stats during battle. Her equipment selection consists of daggers, staves, rods, instruments and whips, along with hats, clothes, light armor, robes and accessories.
