Neo-Rozarra Faction

Members of the Faction in various masks.

The Neo-Rozarria Faction is a rebel, underground movement seen in the manga version of Final Fantasy XII. They are based in both the Kingdom of Dalmasca and its neighboring Kingdom, Nabradia, and particularly came to prominence in the year 704 Old Valendia, just before the Battle of Nalbina Fortress, having been spurned from the proposed political marriage of Princess Ashelia Dalmasca and Lord Rasler Nabradia.

Their main beliefs are that Dalmasca could not afford to place their allegiance with Nabradia when an Archadian threat is looming; instead, they believed that both Dalmasca and Nabradia should pledge allegiance with the Rozarrian Empire. The planned marriage between Lady Ashe and Lord Rasler stood in their way; they planned to prevent it at all costs.

AppearanceEdit

The members within the meeting group all have a distinct appearance; they wear long, hooded black robes, and some sort of mask that obscures the top half of their faces. The only faction member that isn't seen in this outfit is Sir Forz, who attends the meeting in his Nabradian army uniform.

Notable MembersEdit

  • Marchioness Argas - A Neo-Rozarrian spy placed within the Royal Palace of Rabanastre, leader of King Raminas's assassination attempt.
  • Sir Forz - General of Nabradia, believed to be aiding the assassination attempt, actually an enemy spy.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

When Lord Rasler arrives at the Royal Palace of Rabanastre from Nabradia - alongside his General, Sir Forz - to marry the young Princess Ashe, he unexpectedly told her that he could not go through with the wedding. Thinking he had rejected her, Ashe stormed away, furiously embarrassed, to be comforted by Marchioness Argas, whom she treated as an older sister.

As she went to return to her chambers, she overheard Lord Rasler speaking suspiciously with Sir Forz in the courtyard. Hearing her father's name mentioned, she followed Forz as he headed elsewhere in the Palace. Her curiosity was piqued when she saw Forz heading to a closed-off area of the Palace that was under heavy reconstruction.

Sir Forz unwittingly lead Ashe to the secret location of the Neo-Rozarria faction. There, they discussed that evening's plan: to assassinate King Raminas in his bed chambers. Their meeting was briefly interrupted by a noise from outside; Ashe had fallen over in shock, presuming Lord Rasler is the conspiracy leader. Rasler managed to help her escape before Sir Forz found her, though they both fell down to the Garamsythe Waterway through a weak floor.

Basch lends Argas a hand

Captain Basch intervenes the faction's plans.

The Neo-Rozarrian faction headed to Raminas's bed chambers to carry out their attack. They were interrupted by Ashe and Lord Rasler, who had resurfaced from the waterway in order to protect Raminas. The assassination's leader removed her mask to reveal herself to be Marchioness Argas. Argas explained the faction's motives briefly to Ashe before proceeding to the bed to stab the sleeping King.

Unbeknown to the faction, the Order of the Knights of Dalmasca already knew of their plan, and sent their Captain, Basch fon Ronsenburg, to lie in Raminas's bed and lure the assassins, whilst the real Raminas was kept safe elsewhere in the Palace. Captain Basch leaped out of the covers and cut off Argas's arm, before the Order stormed into the room and accost the remaining rebels. It is here revealed that Sir Forz was actually a spy of the Order, planted within the faction in order to alert the Order of their movement.
