"It is no fault of mine if fools imagined me a paragon when I joined the Flames!"
As Flame Marshal, Eline Roaille is the highest-ranked foreigner in the Immortal Flames, the Grand Company of Ul'dah, apart from the Flame General Raubahn. As the Bull chose his inner circle for their worth, and not their nation of origin, the Ishgardianlancer seemed a natural choice for her skill at arms, leadership qualities, and resilience. This was in spite of her less than savory past, having grown up as a lowborn in the Brume and made to do whatever it took to survive—including stealing, killing, and whoring herself. Having joined the Flames, however, she has since gained a reputation as something of a paragon for her service during and after the Seventh Umbral Calamity.
Welcome, friend. Pray forgive my directness, but tell me, what do you know of the Syndicate. Our nation has long been a sultanate, yet true ruling power lies in the hands of Ul'dah's six wealthiest and most influential souls. It is this council of six that is known as the Syndicate. They are seldom of a single mind. Their number includes both Royalists and Monetarists─the former being staunch supporters of the sultana, and the latter desiring self-governance for the merchant classes. Raubahn himself is a Royalist. When he set about rekindling the Immortal Flames, the Monetarists were less than eager to aid him. I do not think that will be the case in this latest endeavor.
Roaille's skintones resemble a Duskwight Elezen, but her Ishgardian heritage more strongly suggests that she is ethnically a Wildwood Elezen.
