"Whenever the realm is threatened, be it by primal, Ascian, Garlean or any other, we take up arms in her defense, that all in Eorzea may live to see a brighter tomorrow."
Son of House Leveilleur, it was at the tender age of eleven that Alphinaud and his twin sister, Alisaie, were accepted into the prestigious Studium. There, he specialized in the study of arcane entities, history and natural history, and pursued advanced studies in the magical arts and aetherology. Upon graduating at sixteen, the Sharlayan age of adulthood, he resolved to sail for Eorzea in spite of his father's objections. Alphinaud has since worked to see his grandfather's wishes made reality. It is why he joined the Scions, and later why he founded the Crystal Braves. His path would set him upon a journey deep into the heart of the Dragonsong War, where his experiences and encounters would see him grow and mature as a person.To say Alphinaud is a man of many talents is an understatement. In addition to his scholastic feats, he is also a talented artist, his specialty being portraits. One will not, however, see him taking up his brush and pallet for Krile Baldesion—a young woman for which he bears some annoyance due to her peculiar tendency to know too much. Adelphoi: Alphinaud's grimoire is one of a set Louisoix crafted for his grandchildren. Alone, it enables an arcanist to channel his magicks with ease, allowing for complex incantations. When wielded in tandem with Alisaie's grimoire, however, new arcane geometries appear, and its true power is made manifest.
