Nael van Darnus

"A crazed figure clad in a suit of white armor, he wields a powerful lance with maddened strength."


Nael van Darnus is a villain and character representing Final Fantasy XIV.

In the original title he hailed from a distinguished family in the Garlean Empire and sought to bring a swift end in the Eorzean invasion by dropping the moon Dalamud upon the nation and unleashing the power of Bahamut among its people. He met his end to the warriors of the Eorzea Alliance after a fierce battle on the Rivenroad but they where to late to stop his schemes. Although he is well spoken, the aetherial energy of Dalamud and Bahamut have driven this Legatus mad and he is easily driven into a murderous rage.


In his normal form Nael wears a beautifully adorned full suit of silver body armor, with a winged skull like helmet concealing his face. In his EX mode he transforms into his female Bahamut form, taking on dragonlike features and skin as well as a pair of wings.

In his first alternate form Bahamut's Handmaiden, Nael is unmasked revealing the female body and visage given to him by Bahamut.

In his second alternate form Drachen Mail Nael's armor becomes the Dragoon Relic armour from Final Fantasy XIV giving him a black suit of dragonic plate armor.

His Manikin is lilac and called the Raven of Obscurity


The Disciple is a Lunatic Lancer who expertly wields a spear for powerful attacks that can be either focused for piercing strikes or wide defensive strokes.
