XIV The Students of Baldesion is an organization of scholars mentioned in Final Fantasy XIV. They are based near Sharlayan on the Isle of Val and are close allies with the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, being involved in studies of the echo, Ascians, and the Rejoining phenomenon.


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

They are frequently mentioned during the storyline as contacts for Urianger and Minfilia. Later, during the Crystal Tower storyline, one of their members, G'raha Tia, is revealed to have been recruited by Cid and Rammbroes for the investigation.

Patches 2.1 and 2.2 seem to be building up to their involvement in future updates/expansions. At the end of A Realm Awoken, the Scions seem to lose contact with the Students of Baldesion. At the end of Through the Maelstrom, Urianger discovers that something happened to the Isle of Val, as though some great and powerful magic similar to Ultima and Meteor was used and the island was "utterly....gone."

In 3.1 As Goes Light, So Goes Darkness, the only known survivor, Krile arrives in Eorzea to help the Scions.

Spoilers end here.

Known MembersEdit


  • The name "Baldesion," as well as the name "Krile" briefly mentioned by Minfilia suggests they are an allusion to Krile Mayer Baldesion and her grandfather, Galuf Halm Baldesion. The "Isle of Val" appears to be another allusion, possibly derived from common mistranslations of Bal Castle in certain localizations.
