Widargelt Beake, also known as Widargelt the Watcher is a non-playable character from Final Fantasy XIV. A monk affiliated with the Fists of Rhalgr and member of the Ala Mhigan Resistance, he appears in the Monk job quests.
Widargelt is a highlander male with brown hair. He wears a full set of Monk temple garb. During Heavensward, he upgrades to the Tantra garb.
A Realm RebornEdit
Widargelt is employed by Professor Erik who researches the military history of Eorzea. As these battlefields contain much aether used to awaken chakra, Widargelt primarily aids the professor as a means to aiding the Ala Mhigan Resistance. During the quest "Brother from Another Mother," Widargelt recognizes the pugilist Adventurer opened chakra at the ruins of Sil'dih, and entrusted a soul crystal to harness the power.
Throughout the Monk quests, he expresses disappointment with Erik's approach, and asks the Adventurer to help him liberate Ala Mhigo. Howver, in his reckless pursuit of power, he attempts to attack the Adventurer at Lake Silvertear in hopes of opening his chakra to the aether from the Battle of Silvertear Skies. The Adventurer succeeds in fending him off, opening the seventh chakra in the process. Professor Erik then arrives and punches Widargelt, harshly scolding him for trying to repay Garlemald's violence with escalating violence.
Having learned from his folly, Widargelt attempts to rebuild the Fists of Rhalgr in Mor Dhona. He has since taken two new pupils: D'zentsa and O'tchakha. Unbeknownst to him, they were members of the shadow sect of the Fists of Rhalgr, in training under H'raha Tia. The shadow sect sought out Widargelt and the Warrior of Light in hopes of opening additional chakra beyond the seventh (a process that also worked in reverse).
H'raha Tia's ruthless discipline is exposed when Widargelt finds O'tchakha wounded after being forced to fight D'zentsa in mortal combat. As they were unwilling to go through it, she now fears for D'zentsa's life. Widargelt expresses hope he can convince H'raha Tia to see reason, but O'tchakha is doubtful. Further. H'raha is the only living monk that has opened all fourteen chakras, making him unparalleled among the survivors of the order.
Refusing to let O'tchakha sacrifice herself to the Warrior of Light, Widargelt concludes the best way to confront H'raha is by working together, hoping their combined strength will be enough to overcome his mastery. At the ruins outside Little Ala Mhigo, H'raha awaits with the captive D'zentsa. Unwilling to be swayed by Widargelt's words, the shadow master attacks. During the fight, the Warrior of Light's fourteenth chakra opens, evening the scales and enabling them to triumph over the master of shadow. Convinced that the Fists of Rhalgr have more paths open to them, Widargelt resolves to reunite the light and shadow sects.
