"Tis unfortunate, but notoriety accumulated over the course of years does not fade overnight."
An Elezen man of Ishgardian descent, Carvallain de Gorgagne is an enlightened pirate who believes men must change with their times. He was born the heir to House Durendaire, and walked the gilded path that all firstborn of Ishgard's High Houses do. Dissatisfied with this fate, Carvallain assumed the alies of a House Durendaire bannerman and set out soon after his fourteenth nameday to learn much and more of the realm. A vessel he had signed aboard to gain passage south ran afoul of the Kraken's Arms but three days out of port, whereupon he was taken captive. Jumping at the chance to escape the stifling confines of Ishgardian high culture, Carvallain enlisted in the pirate crew. He learned how to read the stars, and grew into a rare and excellent leader—so much so that he rose in the ranks. Now thirty-four years of age, he commands all of the Kraken's Arms as their captain.
When he is upon dry land, Carvallain is known to be an excellent chocobo rider who can put most men to shame in a race.
Limsa Lominsa is a place where a man's work and wits determine his worth, where an orphan can pull himself up by his bootstraps to one day lead the Kraken's Arms! If my family hadn't been murdered at sea, I'd have no doubt followed my fortune-telling father into a life of divination. Fate is a funny thing-- the worst thing to ever happen to me was also the best.
