"The tales my sister wove of the wild realm of Eorzea were what first encouraged me to visit. But beyond that initial curiosity, there is much in this land to interest an avid scholar."
Born the seventh of twelve sisters, this native of Sharlayan attended the prestigious Studium where she specialized in the field of archaeology. Upon graduating, Y'mhitra joined the Sons of Saint Coinach, an organization dedicated to unearthing the ancient civilization of Allag, and when the Crystal Tower speared through to the surface following the catastrophic events of the Seventh Umbral Calamity, she made the crossing to Eorzea alongside her colleagues to survey the surrounding ruins.
It was during these excavations that the researchers discovered Allagan tomestones detailing the existence of summoners—powerful mages who practiced the technique of reshaping the stolen essence of primals into biddable avatars. Intrigued and excited, Y'mhitra relocated to Gridania to further pursue the trail of history and deepen her understanding of the summoning arts.
This NPC is found in multiple locations. The map below shows where the NPC is first encountered.
My name is Y'mhitra. I am affiliated with the Sons of Saint Coinach, a research organization comprised of Sharlayan scholars and Eorzean sages. I suppose you might say our focus is on ancient history—my colleagues and I seek to piece together the lost knowledge and technology of the long-buried Allagan Empire. Due to a number of fascinating finds, it is the ruins of Mor Dhona that presently command the bulk of our attention. I am here, however, to conduct some... preliminary research. The tales my sister wove of the wild realm of Eorzea were what first encouraged me to visit. But beyond that initial curiosity, there is much in this land to interest an avid scholar.
One amusing observation: She is not used to the high temperatures. When you go to meet Y'mhitra at the Sagolii Desert location for Austerities of Flame, she's trying to keep herself cool by fanning herself quickly with her hand, and occasionally wiping sweat from her brow (the sweat emote.)
Y'mhitra is the half-sister of Y'shtola. Going by their surnames, the name of their father was likely Y'rhul Nunh, or possibly Y'rhul Tia.
