|The Roegadyn are easily identified by their massive, muscular frames. They are descended from a maritime people that roamed the northern seas, though many of their ancestors turned their longships south to brave the crossing into Eorzean waters. Often considered a barbaric race, the fiercely competitive Roegadyn are also known for their compassion and unswerving loyalty. Many of the greatest warriors in history were born of Roegadyn stock.
Lore Part 1
Known for their brawny builds and piercing eyes, the Roegadyn are the largest and most rugged of Eorzea's races.
The majority of the realm's Roegadyn belong to the Sea Wolf clan, a maritime people who earn their keep on or by the sea, be it as sailors, Fisherman, or pirates. Comparatively fewer in number are the Hellsguard who are known for their more earnest demeanors and can often be found working as bodyguards and smithies.
Lore Part 2
The Roegadyn are a maritime people whose largest concentrations are found in the northern seas, by way of which they came to Eorzea.
They possess enormous, muscular builds and are known for the cultural emphasis they place on competition and unflinching courage, though tender, introspective individuals can also be found. Roegadyn in and around the Limsa Lominsa area are typically seamen putting in at port, but many have also settled permanently, becoming mercenaries, bodyguards, or even pirates by trade. Far away, deep in the mountains of Abalathia's Spine, live mountain clans of reclusive Roegadyn known as the Hellsguard, said to have mastered the magical arts.
Pronounced roo-guh-deen; the easiest way to tell the difference between the clans is skin tone, as Hellsguard will generally take on red to peach tones while Sea Wolves take on a green to gray tone. The darkest and lightest of each clan's complexions can be quite similar, however. Roegadyn Naming Conventions can also help
