"The way of the sword is such that all who walk it become lost."
A Seeker of the Sun hailing from Ala Mhigo, J'moldva led others away from Gyr Abania in the wake of its occupation by the Garlean Empire. A skilled lancer with a strong sense of justice, she became the first Ala Mhigan to fight at the Coliseum in Ul'dah. She quickly attained fame for her victories as "The Hellfire Phoenix," almost winning the title of champion in a battle with Greinfarr.
J'moldva's triumph was sacrificed, however, to quell the fury of the crowd during a fight that grew out of hand. After that, she swore to never again take up sword or spear for sport. Though defeated before she could attain the title, numerous Ala Mhigans followed in her footsteps, and the proceeds of their victories have aided the nation's many refugees.
Following her retirement from gladiatorial combat, J'moldva joined the Wood Wailers of Gridania, among whom she remained until sometime after the Seventh Umbral Calamity. After this, she decided to put fighting behind her forever, until a chance encounter with the young half-breed Arenvald Lentinus stirred her fighting spirit once more. Thus risen from her ashes, the Hellfire Phoenix seeks the liberation of her homeland as an ally to the Scions of the Seventh Dawn and the Ala Mhigan Resistance, fighting alongside Arenvald and V'mah Tia in a battle far more meaningful than any she encountered on the bloodsands.
