Title: Alberic Quickwater

"What is it that lends strength to those who know no law but their own?"

Former bearer of the title of the Azure Dragoon, Ser Alberic presently serves with the Temple Knights. When Nidhogg stirred from slumber two decades past, it was Ser Alberic who sallied forth and forced the great wyrm into retreat. Despite his vaunted prowess, however, the dragoon could feel the Eye gnawing away at his essence day by day, and it was of his own free will that he surrendered its blighted power. He returned to the ranks of the Temple Knights and turned his hand to instruction. To measure his success in the role of mentor, one need only look to the accomplishments of his gifted student, Estinien, the present Azure Dragoon.

Additional Dialogue
I am Ser Alberic Bale, knight of Ishgard in service to the Holy See.
What do you do here?
I am a knight of the Holy See, sworn for life—as we all are. In addition to my duties in service to the Holy See, my fellow knights and I are tasked with protecting Ishgard from the dragons—the wyrms who have beset our nation throughout its history. In the past this duty fell not to the knights of the See, but to a specialized brigade known as the dragoons. In my younger days, I was one of them—verily, their leader, bearing the title of Azure Dragoon. Many years ago, I retired from active duty to serve the See. My former post is now held by my erstwhile student, an accomplished young dragoon by the name of Estinien.
What is a dragoon?
The dragoons are an elite contingent of Ishgardian knights who serve to protect our nation from the wrath of the fearsome wyrms that would raze us to the ground. The first—and greatest—of the dragoons was none other than Haldrath the Dragonseye, hero of the Founding Wars. It was he who drove back the great wyrm Nidhogg, claiming the powers of the Eye for Ishgard. Dragoons must display complete mastery of their chosen weapon, the lance, that they might stand against their immense foe. The leader of the dragoons is known as the Azure Dragoon, and is chosen by the Eye, a relic guarded within the Holy See which bestows upon the chosen one the power of the dragon. And yet this power is as a double-edged sword, for if the dragoon does not maintain absolute control over his emotions, he shall fall under the thrall of the very wyrms that he would slay. But so it has always been—no great power comes without a cost.
Pre-Calamity Dialogue
We of Ishgard hold the Fury as foremost among the Twelve, and our faith in Her lends strength to our lance arms. What is it that lends strength to those who know no law but their own?
  • Alberic is 44 years old.
