"We're Ala Mhigans, and Ala Mhigans never forsake one another, hardship be damned!"
A leader in the Ala Mhigan Resistance, Meffrid continued to fight the Garleans long after his homeland's fall, striking the empire from hidden outposts situated throughout Gyr Abania. As the Empire tightened its control over the city-state and the surrounding region, however, the Highlander was forced to flee in order to rebuild his organization. When his men and women reached Gridania tired and hungry, they were informed that the elementals had rejected their plight, and turned away. Now, having seen his thirty-eighth nameday, Meffrid struggles to maintain his followers' sense of purpose so they may once again reclaim their homes.
A determined Highlander man with a self-taught style of swordsmanship, Meffrid and his companions found sanctuary in Little Ala Mhigo after an adventurer assisted them in the Black Shroud. Despite the dangers involved, however, Meffrid elected to return to Gyr Abania, where he became a pivotal member in Conrad's band of freedom fighters. He fought bravely when Zenos launched an assualt on Rhalgr's Reach, but fell to the blade of Fordola rem Lupis, leader of the Skulls. Aged thirty-eight at the time of his death, Meffrid left behind a wife and child—a family to whom he had long ago said his farewells. Such was his way of sparing them the consequences of his choice to lead a life with the Resistance.
