You've brought in quite a few new recruits, haven't you? Your reputation extends far beyond Little Ala Mhigo, it would seem, and deservedly so.
Why, meeting you has given me something to strive for. Remember the name of Wilred! I shall hone both body and mind and do you and my fellow Braves proud.
Also known as "Wilred of the Falling Petal," this Midlander of Ala Mhigan descent by blood was born in Thanalan, where his parents had fled after the imperial invasion. Unhappy in the pauper's life of a refugee, he became a leader to the youth of Little Ala Mhigo. His repute earned him audience with an Ascian who led him to a failed attempt at a summoning of Rhalgr, Lord of Destruction. Learning from his failure, Wilred embarked on a journey of discovery soon after, only to be unexpectedly caught up in the Crystal Braves. He cared deeply for his comrades, and truly took to heart the values of the company, which stressed equality.
