|A secret society devoted to serving the realm, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn gave sage counsel to the leaders of Eorzea through unofficial channels. After their desperate struggle against the XIVth Imperial Legion, they stepped out from the shadows, and continue to work for the betterment of Eorzea.
In 1752 of the Sixth Astral Era, Louisoix Leveilleur was serving as a commander of the army fielded by the Eorzean Alliance. With Dalamud set to collide with Eorzea, he resolved to invoke the Twelve to save the realm. Realizing that the summoner would need to sacrifice himself, lest all in Eorzea fall under the thrall of the deities, Louisoix made his choice: he would give up his life to call the Twelve's might. Yet, he kept his intentions from the Archons of the Circle of Knowing, fearing they would lose heart should they learn the truth. Nonetheless, he knew full well his organization would lose its leader—and so he devised a plan. In times past, he had had dealings with the head of the Path of the Twelve, Minfilia. Now, he told her everything, and entrusted the Circle's future to her. It was thus in accordance with Louisoix's will that the Scions of the Seventh Dawn were formed following the Battle of Carteneau, the confluence of his Circle of Knowing and Minfilia's Path of the Twelve.
