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 only one battle as an NPC ally. His birthday is July 5.
Run-ins with RamzaEdit
The player first sees Orran (unnamed) at his father Cidolfus Orlandeau's side when Delita frames Glevanne, Goltanna's chancellor, for treason. However, 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 is able to rescue Orran from the gang. Orran then 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 then asks him if he can come up with proof that the war had been engineered by the Church of Glabados. Much later, after Orlandeau's death is staged by Delita Heiral, Orran angrily confronts Delita, who reveals what he really did and tells Orran that he must help Ramza now.
The Durai Papers and DeathEdit
Following the destruction of Ultima at the Airship Graveyard, Orran attends Alma Beoulve's funeral with the mage Valmafra Lenande. He then thinks he sees Ramza and Alma riding by on a chocobo. He subsequently writes the Durai Papers, which details the true history of the War of the Lions and Ramza's battles with the Lucavi.
However, the Church of Glabados realizes what will happen if the Durai Papers are published, brands Orran Durai as a heretic and had him burned at the stake. The completed but unpublished Durai Papers is later rediscovered by Orran's descendant, Arazlam.
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 also inherently immune to all negative statuses with the exception of Stone, Blind, Silence, Oil, Slow, and Stop.
When fought in Rendezvous Missions #14: Brave Story, he is level 99 and starts with Bravery and 71 Faith. He is equipped with the Omnilex, Black Garb, Japa Mala, and Thief's Cap. He has access to Astrology and Items, and can use the abilities 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.
