Final Fantasy Brave ExviusEdit

The voice of a bard holds strange powers. It can inspire allies on the battlefield and increase their physical and magical strength, as well as tempt and confuse the enemy. To say that the voice of a bard is his or her very soul would be no exaggeration. Were he or she to lose it, it would leave said person utterly powerless. This tunic was made to prevent its wearer from suffering the ailment known as silence, and thus it is loved by all those who fear losing their voice.

EtymologyEdit

In medieval Gaelic and British culture, a bard was a professional poet, employed by a patron, such as a monarch or nobleman, to commemorate the patron's ancestors and to praise the patron's own activities. Originally a specific class of poet, with the decline of living bardic tradition in the modern period the term "bard" acquired generic meaning of an epic author/singer/narrator, or any poets, especially famous ones. For example, William Shakespeare is known as the Bard or the Bard of Avon.
