Clans of the Duskwight.jpg

Though all are able to trace their point of origin back to their tumultuous separation from the Wildwood, the branch of Elezen comprising Eorzea's Duskwight Clans have diversified even further, beyond the racial split. Due to the inherent remoteness and degrees of separation their subterranean existence caused, many tribes have developed a unique and distinct culture unto themselves, with traditions and values found only among their particular clan units, which may have extended only throughout a particular region or family.  Listed below are the known Duskwight Clans, with further background information (where available).

They deal with information, objects of power, and those which might impart knowledge, from the more benign historical and moderately low-aether grade, to more dangerous, highly aetherical objects and knowledge. Despite a heavy focus on the importance of Aether, the Mystrife family has members of all walks of life, though throughout their highest values are Knowledge, Power, and Family.

  • More Info: Though very proud, and typically hold low notions of outsiders unless they've proven themselves 'of interest', they've an understanding of the relevance of knowledge that other cultures possess, and how it may benefit them and those who seek out the Mystrife family. They believe without looking at all possible angles, important knowledge may be lost, and are often very thorough with their endeavors. They tend to move about, or split into groups for various reasons, but maintain communication with relevant contacts. It may be rumored among any clans who deal with them that they sent someone up to 'learn the secrets of the other races', but others believe that the Mystrifes wouldn't deal with such trifles. Entry into the family is possible through 'joining with another' already part of the clan, or on rare occasion, being 'procured' at a very young age, and found worthy. (WIP)
