AppearanceEdit

Artwork of Livia's helmet.

Livia is a woman in a suit of an imperial officer's black and white armor. She wears a unique helmet that bears the visage of a one-eyed woman. She wields a pair of gunbaghnakhs called Algea that have been welded to her armor.

PersonalityEdit

Vicious, cruel and unstable, she takes delight in the domination of Eorzea and harbors little love for her fellow soldiers, often issuing death threats to them whether they are rank and file soldiers or even of a higher rank than her, such as Nero tol Scaeva. Her affection is reserved for the man she loves, Gaius van Baelsar, whom she serves with loyalty bordering on fanaticism.

StoryEdit

FFXIV Imperial Legatus

Livia and her fellow Tribunes with Gaius.

Having been orphaned in a war and separated from her sister Lucia, Livia Sas Junius was taken in and raised by Gaius Van Baelsar. Livia seeks to repay Gaius for his kindness by joining his new campaign to continue the empire's subjugation of Eorzea in the aftermath of the Seventh Umbral Era. After the Barheim incident, in which scores of imperial colonists met their end at the hands of the natives, Livia was dispatched to Dalmasca. Under her watch, suspected rebels were hunted down and slaughtered without trial.

She confronts Nero tol Scaeva for straying from his assigned duties to spy on the Warrior of Light slaying Ifrit, and threatens to execute him herself if he lets himself fail. Nero remarks it would be foolish of him to confront a woman in love.

Livia vs Minfilia

Livia leads the legion's attack on the hideout of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn in Vesper Bay. Sshe kills most of the organization's members after Minfilia Warde's formal surrender and kidnaps her, Urianger Augurelt, Papalymo Totolymo, and Tataru Taru, dealing a large blow to those fighting back against the Garleans and the primal threat.

She oversees the interrogation of Minfilia herself, brutally beating her, demanding information on the Echo and how it lets her resist the tempering of the primals. Livia later confronts the Warrior of Light and gets into a battle with Yda Hext when they break into the imperial stronghold to save Minfilia and the others.

Disturbed by the death of her comrade Rhitahtyn sas Arvina, Livia's psyche begins to unravel and Gaius orders her to defend Castrum Meridianum after the two rendezvous in his quarters.
