New Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Renders Showcase Key Allies

on July 11, 2013 12:31 PM

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is on the last week of the third phase of the beta, and today Square Enix released a batch of new renders showcasing the key allies that we’ll meet through the story.

In the gallery below you can see the strong and beautiful Minfilia, the gentle womanizer Thancred, the flippant Yda, the wise Papalymo, the enigmatic Y’shtola, the fatherly Louisoix, Urianger the prophet, the twins Alphinaud and Alisaie and the brilliant chief of the Garlong Ironworks Cid nan Garlond, that seems to have gained a beard since the ending of the original Final Fantasy XIV.

If you didn’t play Final Fantasy XIV but plan to get on board with A Realm Reborn, and want to know who (almost) all of those characters are, you may want to read the eight chapters of my “The Story So Far” column, that will catch you up with the story and the cast, and let you see all the relevant cutscenes.

And yeah, Louisoix is supposed to be dead, but is he?

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
