Grand Company Lore


Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to brush up on general grand company lore. Specifically the Immoral Flames. Should we assume they are anything like the real-life military at all? If we were to join one, are we mostly confined to the city-state if we were to join one? And how does one go about joining one and archive the ranks? (I assume it's not as easy as how it is in-game, lol)

 

Reason being is that I'm thinking of having one of my characters join one ICly.

Here is the organizational chart.

They are essentially the bulk of Ul'dah's military strength.

 

Depending on your standing, you may be able to leave and travel to other places to conduct investigations etc. We've seen Flames presence in the other city states on investigations and whatnot. I assume it is easy to enlist but staying and doing the job is a different story depending on what brigade you may join.

Of course, the accuracy of that chart differs depending on whether or not you've finished certain content in the main and side story.

 

 

Teledji Adeledji is killed by Raubahn during the climax of 3.55, resulting in the Flame General's deposition and incarceration until early in Heavensward.

Eline Roaille is outed as a Garlean spy and relieved of her duties... during the main story in 2.3.

Godbert Manderville is an unlisted member of the Syndicate. He isn't seen having any influence on the Flames-- though he's probably too busy with keeping after his son, the Gold Saucer, and generally being too awesome without any clothes on for it to matter.

Eline Roaille is outed as a Garlean spy just prior to the assault on Castrum Meridianum in 2.0.

Nooo, the traitor is not ousted before the CM assault, but into the 2.x patch series! A skirmish between Flames/Crystal Braves against Garleans take places outside CM, though.

 

It is implied in the 2.55 ending that Immortal Flames have a presence as far as "the Ala Mhigan front", so there is that. It is safe to assume the Flames are a conventional land army, versus Maelstrom's naval flavour and the Twin Adders' more ranger-esque, peacekeeping style.

Yeah, I think I remember properly that it was part of 2.3, the Defenders of Eorzea patch. Previous post updated now.

Actually I'm pretty sure that happens during 2.4...

 

 

There is Yugiri fighting alongside you, and she was put on a bus after 2.2 only to return for 2.4. She even fights as a Ninja, which wouldn't have been possible in 2.3 as Ninja wasn't even in the game.

That's because she is the IC hook for Ninjas entering the game.  She was always a Ninja, but no one knew about it (or the fact that most of the Doman she brought with her were shinobi) because it was a huge secret).

I wasn't referring to the fact that she's a Ninja, I'm referring to the fact that in the instanced battle she fights as one. Which would have only possible in 2.4 because I doubt Rogue and Ninja would be coded in the game before they were added.

But if they actually were in the game before 2.4, the battle happens in 2.4 either way. The quest "The Reason Roaille" is a 2.4 quest.
