The youngest of the four nations of The Alliance. Jeuno was an initially a small fishing village within the Republic of Bastok before the sudden appearance of a mysterious young man named Kam'lanaut and his younger brother Eald'narche. Kam'lanaut introduced to the people of Jeuno crystal synthesis and other such technologies. This began a massive increase in Jeuno's wealth and standards of living. Shortly after The Crystal War broke out, Jeuno seceded from Bastok before playing a vital part in uniting the four nations

Despite having little in terms of military prowess and land, Jeuno holds significant sway on the international stage. Its central location means it plays a vital role in diplomacy and trade while the invention of of the airship, through a collaboration between Kam'lanaut and Cid, gives Jeuno access an incredible reach across Vana'diel. It remains a huge centre in scientific discovery thanks in part to the Armathrwn Society, a group of researches that investigate the likes of The Emptiness and the Voidwalkers. Viewed as a hero of The Crystal War, Kam'lanaut still leads Jueno as the Archduke of Jueno with the leader of the Armathrwn Society, Duke Vicarious Esha'ntarl as his second in command.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/images_17_1.jpg
The Crystal Line will soon be revived and the Gate of the Gods will open. That is when the true Vana'diel of legend will be reborn

The Archduke of Jeuno and the man responsible for the nations prosperity, Kam'lanaut introduced crystal synthesis to the world of Vana'diel. A powerful and respected leader who united the four warring nations of Vana'diel against the Shadowlord's army during the Crystal War. In truth, he is a Zilart prince and one of the last few remaining Zilart in existence. Together with his brother Eald'narche, they resume their centuries old plot to open the Gate to Paradise.

    Eald'narche 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eald.jpg

The brother of Archduke Kam'lanaut who constantly sits in on his meetings, often to his older brothers frustration. Despite his youth, he is somewhat of a genius himself

One of the last Zilart nobles in existence, his botched attempt to open the Gate to Paradise led to the destruction of his race. He and his brother were frozen in stasis, only to be inadvertently awoken centuries later by Raogrimm. He is actually the elder of the two brothers, but his body was frozen in time after being exposed to one of the Mothercrystals.

Eald'narche is the final boss of the Rise of the Zilart expansion, as he continues his insane vision to open the Gate of the Gods.

  • Big Bad: Of the Expansion and arguably the game's main storyline.
  • Beehive Barrier: He has one during the first stage of the final boss.
  • Black Mage
  • Child Mage
  • Enfant Terrible This is ultimately subverted, as he is Actually the older of the two brothers.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: While he leaves his younger brother to die, the end of the expansion implies that he still greatly cares for his sister, The Dawn Maiden Yve'noile
  • Evil Genius
  • Eyepatch of Power: Notable because he uses it to cover his crystallized left eye that he got in an accident which made him stuck in the body of a child forever. Subverted because in his Final Boss battle, he throws said eyepatch away and is clearly stronger that way.
  • Flunky Boss: He hides behind his exoplates and orbitals in the first battle with him.
  • Immortal Immaturity: It's just an act.
  • Kick the Dog Tricked Papsque Shamode into unleashing Lightbringer, the sword responsible for the destruction of Tavnazia
  • Mad Scientist: It's revealed in Rise of the Zilart.
  • Man Behind the Man He is actually the older of the two brothers, and is the one who is truly in charge
  • Older Than They Look: He is over twenty years, having been found with this brother before The Crystal War
    • Really 700 Years Old: He is actually A Zilart Prince who tried open the gates to paradise over 10,000 years ago.
  • Power Floats
  • Red Right Hand: His crystal eye under the eyepatch.
  • Stronger Sibling: He is revealed to be not only more powerful than his brother, but well above the Ark Angels as well.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: To his own brother, no less!
  • Weirdness Censor: No one seems to notice that he still has the body of a child, despite being close to thirty

The Armathrwn Society.

The mysterious organisation that are charged with investigating super natural phenomenon like the spread of the emptiness and the Planar Rifts. They also make up some of the most important figures in Jueno politics, including the Duke Vicarious Esha'ntarl and Jueno's most important diplomat, Nag'molada.

    Eshan'Tarl /Cardinal Mildaurion 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/images_18_4.jpg

The Duke Vicarious while the Archduke is absent during the Chains of Promathia story line and the leader of The Armathrwn Society. Like Kam'lanaut, she is a Zilart. Her end goal is to prevent Promathia's resurrection. To do so she spent some time in Tavnazia as Cardinal Mildaurion

  • Badass Preacher: As Cardinal Mildaurion
  • Big Good: Probably the biggest example in the Chains of Promathia story
  • Foil: Of Kam'lanaut. Both are Zilart who have leadership positions with Jeuno, and both are trying to finish plans that have started 10,000 years ago. The difference being that Eshan'tarl's fights for Vana'diel, where Kam'lanaunt is actively trying to destroy it
  • I Will Wait for You: An antagonistic version of the this trope, as Cardinal Mildaurion, she has spent 10000 years waiting for The Keeper of the Apocalypse in order to lure out and kill Promathia
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: Her Alter Ego is named Mildaurion and can easily be gained before starting the Chains of Promathia storyline
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Her goals are almost entirely against the goals of rest of the Zilart. Noticeably she is the only one of the surviving Zilart or Kuluu characters that puts the well being of the 5 races front and centre
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: She leads an armada of airships against Bahamuts army of dragons while the main party is dealing with Promathia
  • The Omniscient Council of Vagueness
  • The Plan: A good chunk of Chains of Promathia is spent trying to figure out what her plans where Her plan was to lure Promathia out in his god form and kill him then.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: The ending credits of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel implies that she takes control of Jueno permanently following Kam'lanaut's demise
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Token Good Teammate: Of the Zilart and Kuluu based in Jeuno
  • Walking Spoiler: One of two major spoiler characters in the Chains of Promathia

    Nag'molada 
A diplomat from Jeuno and member of the Armathrwn society. He gets transported to Tavnazia with the player at the beginning of Chains of Promathia.
  • Anti-Villain - His jealousy leads him to commit some incredibly stupid and questionable acts, but for the most part he does what he can to stop Promathia's resurrection, until Promathia brainwashes him at the end
  • Blonde Guys Are Evil
  • Driven by Envy: His jealousy of Selh'teus drives a huge amount of his actions during the story
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Being a Kuluu among Zilart has given him a massive inferiority complex.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite his actions in Chains if Promathia, he is actually quite reasonable in Wings of the Goddess, particularly in the scholar storyline where he acknowledges Erlene's innocence in the string of murders he was investigating
  • The Starscream: He ends up trying to kill Eshan'Tarl
  • Unwitting Pawn: Promathia uses Nag'molada to free himself
  • We Used to Be Friends: He was friends with Selh'teus when they where younger.

Captain of the Ducal Guard in Jeuno. He takes his roles and responsibilities very seriously, which in turn brings him into tensions with his childhood friend Dr Monberaux

  • Blatant Lies: Sure Wolgang, you just happened to drop the key your best friend was after
  • Call-Back: Part way through the Chains of Promathia, he reminisces about how he and Dr Monberaux often looked at Jueno through a some soft blue glass. This is a call back to the opening cinematic where the image of the mother crystal is superimposed over Aldo looking at Tavnazia through his fingers.
  • Childhood Friends: With Dr Monberaux
  • Friendship Moment: He has one during the latter parts of Chains of Promathia where he reminisces about his past with Dr Monberaux and "accidentally" drops the key the player needs
  • Friendship Trinket: The blue glass him and Monberaux he looked at Jueno through
  • Knight in Shining Armor
  • Like Father, Like Son: His father was the Captain Of the Guard during the Crystal War
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: His position often puts him into morally ambiguous situations.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Eventually
  • To Be Lawful or Good: This is a big part of his development in Chains of Promathia and what brings him in conflict with Dr Monberaux

Wolfgang's father and captain of the Ducal Guard in Jeuno during the Crystal War
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop:Plays the role of good cop during a negotiation with San d'Oria over a crashed airship at the beginning of the San d'Oria [s] story.
  • Like Father, Like Son: He is the Captain of the Ducal guards, just like his son will go on to be.
