Story of the Dolls

The First Paladins

The First Paladins
The first row displays life-size recreations of the three legendary Sultansworn known collectively as the first paladins. Of particular interest are the blades that they brandish. Three blades forged from the same steel, one each bestowed to the three great warriors who would attend the Royal House by the hand of Sasagan Ul Sisigan, first of his name and founder of our nation. Curtana, Joyeuse, Durandal... Eras have passed, monarchs have risen and fallen, but the legends of these blades─and the men who did wield them─live on to this very day.

The Twin Bows

The Twin Bows
On the second row of the stage stands life-size figurines of two archers─referenced in Thorne Dynasty records as the Twin Bows. It is said that they served as bodyguards for Princess Edvya on the strict orders of her father, the sultan. It is perhaps worth noting that despite their moniker, the two are of different races entirely. One is Hyuran, a midlander, not unlike the Royal House of Thorne which he did serve. The other is of Miqo'te blood, a Seeker of the Sun. The histories tell of how─after years of bitter struggle─the Thorne Dynasty at last succeeded in reaching across the desert and establishing trade with the U tribe, a fact which the existence of these dolls would seem to corroborate.

The Three Creators

The Three Creators
The third row is adorned with the figures of an alchemist, a goldsmith, and a weaver─together known as the Three Creators. It is widely believed that these three women─alchemist, goldsmith, and weaver─do not represent actual historical personages, but are rather quasi-deities said to watch over our nation and see it to greater heights of inspiration and prosperity. Observing these dolls, it is evident that ladies' fashion was at the center of attention and demand since days long past. Most likely, the respect and reverence shown for the skilled artisans who created such objects of beauty resulted in the birth of these three symbolic figures.

Commoner Youth & Princess Edvya

Princess Edvya
Quite the handsome lad, isn't he? This doll is a recreation of none other than the commoner youth who would eventually become husband to Princess Edvya. As the legend goes, the fated lovers met during Princess Edvya's short foray outside the palace walls. So smitten was the boy with the princess's beauty that he vowed that he would one day become a knight and rise above his station, that they might one day be wed. True to his word, after enduring years of grueling training, the once-scrawny lad grew into a brave and strong knight. So moved was the princess by the boy's pure heart and determination, that she pleaded with her father to consent to their marriage. Having learned years ago that his daughter was not to be denied, he did so with a smile. The tale sounds as if it were dreamed up by some mawkish minstrel, does it not? And yet it is cited in several documents as historical fact. Little did the lovers know, however, that the glorious reign of the Thorne Dynasty was soon to come to an end...
As you have doubtless already surmised, the lovely lady seated atop the stage is none other than Princess Edvya herself. It is of some historical note that these exquisite figurines were not commissioned by the royal house itself. Rather, they are the work of common town artisans, who created them out of their newfound respect for Princess Edvya and Sultan Baldric in the wake of the events of the legend. It began with one doll, then two, with their numbers growing year by year as the sultan and his daughter grew to be even more beloved by the commonfolk, whom they walked amongst willingly. Happy years those were, but they would be short-lived. The second Ul Dynasty would soon rise, and the Thorne traditions would be abandoned, giving way to the small and dainty dolls so familiar to Eorzeans today.
