One of Louisoix Leveilleur's apprentices, Papalymo lost his partner Yda Hext six years prior to the Seventh Astral Era. Soon after, he was talked by Yda's younger sister Lyse to take her place as Yda. While Papalymo reluctantly agreed while using his magic to imprint the real Yda's tattoo on Lyse, he secretly asked everyone to pretend that she was the real Yda at her behest.

Final Fantasy XIV/LegacyEdit

Papalymo and Yda are first found in the Twelvewoods nearby Gridania after crashing from an airship. Joined by the Adventurer, Papalymo and Yda are ambushed by wolves before forced to flee from a Treant. Luckily, the group are saved by E-Sumi-Yan. Papalymo later joins his fellow Circle of Knowing members in fighting Gaius Van Baelsar and eventually the attempted sealing of Bahamut during the beginning of the Seventh Umbral Era.

Final Fantasy XIVEdit

Papalymo Yda Meet Adventurer

Papalymo and Yda meet the Adventurer in the Central Shroud.

Papalymo, Yda, and Kuplo Kopp are first encountered inside the Central Shroud during the "Chasing Shadows" quest. While inspecting the disturbance in the aetheric flow of the area, they are attacked by a group of Treants. The two help the Adventurer fight the attacking Treants and they manage to defeat the monsters. After defeating the monsters, Papalymo and Yda watch over the Adventurer after they faint from a surfeit of aether.

After the Adventurer wakes up, he and Yda discover the corpse of a Chieftain Ixal and suspect that it was the one responsible for the monster attack. He then orders Kuplo Kopp to report to E-Sumi-Yan about the situation. After Kuplo Kopp departs, Papalymo and Yda bid the Adventurer farewell and return to report the situation to their leader.

Papalymo and Yda are not seen again until the Adventurer is at the Guardian Tree during the "To Guard a Guardian" quest. During the quest, he and Yda appear to aid the Adventurer during the battle against the Masked Mage. After defeating the Masked Mage, Papalymo and Yda discover that he is one of the Ascians who have been manipulating the Beastmen. During this time, Papalymo begins to suspect something, but refuses to speak about it to Yda at the current moment. Papalymo and Yda then say goodbye to Adventurer and return to Gridania. After returning to Gridania, both Papalymo and Yda are seen at the Greenbliss festival in the city and congratulate the Adventurer.

Papalymo and Yda are not seen again until "The Scions of the Seventh Dawn" quest in Western Thanalan. It is here that the Adventurer learns that they are part of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, a group formed of the Archons and the Path of the Twelve.

He is among the Scions who are captured by the Garlean Empire when Livia Sas Junius attacks their headquarters at the Waking Sands. He is later successfully rescued by the Adventurer and Biggs and Wedge, after which he resumes his duties with the Scions.

Before the FallEdit

When the Scion's are betrayed by the Crystal Braves and framed for the assassination of Nanamo Ul Namo, Paplymo seemingly sacrifices his life alongside Yda to buy the rest of the Scions time to escape.

Final Fantasy XIV: HeavenswardEdit

XIV HW Yda and Papalymo

Yda and Papalymo infiltrating the Ala Mhigan Resistence

Following the Scions being accused of the apparent regicide of Nanamo Ul Namo, Yda and Papalymo managed to escape and decide to remain in hiding to investigate matters concerning a faction within the Ala Mhigan Resistance known as 'the Masks' and the mysterious masked man known as the Griffin who leads them. He reminds Yda that they can't stay here forever as they have other responsibilities. During the events of Soul Surrender, while attending one of the rallys held by one of the Griffin's promixies, Yda and Papalymo encounter the Adventurer and reunite with the Scions in dealing with the Warriors of Darkness.. Soon after, Papalymo requests that he hold on to the Tupsimati for safekeeping.

After learning of The Griffin's plot to attack Baelsar's Wall, Papalymo travels with Yda and Yugiri in secret tunnels to try to reason with the Griffin. But once Griffin reveals his true intentions while revealing his true identity as Ilberd, the Scions were unable to stop him from sacrificing himself and his subordinates to summon an all-powerful primal with the Eyes of Nidhogg. Seeing no other way to keep the primal from going on a rampage, Papalymo orders else to flee as he intends to sacrifice himself by using the Tupsimati to cast the same spell Louoisoix previously used to try to contain Bahamut at Carteneau. Once Yda is taken with the others, telling her to find her own path, Papalymo conducts the spell and seals the nascent primal in a cocoon of light which drains him of his life. By the time Omega was found and activated, Papalymo's life ended with all his spells fading with his death. Yda confirms Papalymo's demise while revealing her true identity as Lyse, deciding to honor her friend's request to find her own path as her true self.
