Orran Durai, also known as Olan Durai, is the adopted son of Cidolfus Orlandeau from Final Fantasy Tactics. With the exception of his exceptionally powerful Astrology move Celestial Stasis, he is not all that strong in combat. He appears in one battle as an NPC ally.
Run-ins with RamzaEdit
Orran is at his father Cidolfus Orlandeau's side when Delita Heiral frames Glevanne, Druksmald Goltanna's chancellor, for treason. Orran's first meeting with Ramza occurs during his travels. As he is making his way through the Mining Town of Gollund he is cornered by several thieves. Ramza, traveling the same road, encounters the scene and rescues Orran from the gang. Orran returns to his job searching for deserters, wishing Ramza good tidings.
Some time later Ramza stumbles upon a group of Southern Sky deserters. They recognize Ramza as a wanted heretic and attack him, but are soundly defeated. Orran, who had been tracking the group from afar, makes his presence known and gives Ramza his thanks. He asks for proof that the war is being engineered by the Church of Glabados. Much later, after Orlandeau's death is staged by Delita, Orran angrily confronts him. Delita reveals what he really did, and tells Orran that he must help Ramza.
The Durai PapersEdit
Following the destruction of Ultima at the Airship Graveyard, Orran attends Alma Beoulve's funeral with the mage Valmafra Lenande and glimpses Ramza and Alma riding by on chocobos. He writes the Durai Papers, which detail the true history of the War of the Lions and Ramza's battles with the Lucavi.
The Church of Glabados realizes what will happen if the Durai Papers are published, and brands Orran a heretic and has him burned at the stake. The completed but unpublished Durai Papers are later rediscovered by Orran's descendant, Arazlam Durai.
Orran starts at level 18 with 73 Bravery and 71 Faith, and comes equipped with the Bestiary, Wizard's Hat, Gaia Gear, and Hermes Shoes. He comes with the Astrology command, which allows him to use Celestial Stasis, and his other abilities are randomized. He is inherently immune to statuses other than Stone, Blind, Silence, Oil, Slow, and Stop.
When fought in the fourteenth Rendezvous battle, Brave Story, he is level 99 and starts with 73 Bravery and 71 Faith. He is equipped with the Omnilex, Black Garb, Japa Mala, and Thief's Cap. He has Astrology and Items, and equipped with Magick Counter, Swiftness, and Lifefont. He is immune to the same statuses as previously.
He is known as Orlan, mentioned as the psychic who modified tarot cards for games, and invented the card game Triple Triad. Orlan can be seen sitting on a wooden bench in the background of the tutorial along with a Black Mage.

Orran is investigating the power of the auracite, as well as the motives of the Knights Templar at his father's request. Although Orran serves the Knights of the Southern Sky, who are enemies of House Beoulve, Ramza confides in him and shares his knowledge of the cardinal's evil plot, creating a common cause between them. When Orlandeau is accused of treason and taken captive at Riovanes Castle, Orran enlists the help of Ramza to rescue his imprisoned father."
