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 with proof that the war had been 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 Papers and DeathEdit
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 Durai a heretic and have him burned at the stake. The completed but unpublished Durai Papers are later rediscovered by Orran's descendant, Arazlam.
