"My dear boy's always had a bit of a rebellious streak. What can I say? I can come on a bit too strong at times."
Arguably the worst cook in Eorzea, Julyan is a perpetually (to hear her speak it) young demoiselle who wed Godbert following a torrid and scandalous love affair. The couple manages the company Manderville & Manderville, and together have amassed a considerable fortune. Julyan supports her husband in many ways, and it is largely thanks to her own aptitude that Godbert has a seat on the Syndicate.
Little else is known of Julyan save that she gave birth to Hildibrand remarkably early in her life—something that may contribute to the fact that she dotes upon her son overmuch, going to far as to keep a journal colorfully detailing his every growth. When he left home, she is said to have flown into a fit of unbridled panic that night left the Manderville manor in ruin. She insists that her youthful appearance is maintained not with copious layers of expensive creams and unguents, but simply because of the unwavering fact that she is still young, and heavens protect those who might imply otherwise.
