Miria Vail: An inquisitor with a flair for the subtle and theatric. Generally unspoken of outside of the Holy See and the circles of that lofty order.

Also purported to have an unhealthy fascination with fire, much to her victims’ chagrin.
Orrin Halgren: From a minor Noble House, Dragoon on leave by permission of House Fortemps to conduct business outside of Ishgard. Despite the smallness of his house, became known relatively well amongst nobility for the many negative rumors surrounding his lineage. Amongst other knights and Dragoons though, he is generally well accepted, even feared for his brutality in combat.
Aurege Davilles: An inquisitor of the Holy See, separated from the nation during the Calamity.

Jessika Saphir: Daughter of servants to a noble house of Ishgard. Accused of heresy, the family fled Ishgard, seeking refuge in the southern area of the Black Shroud near Thanalan, where they finally settled in an Ala Mhigan refugee camp. Jessika has more of an affinity for Ala Mhigo than Ishgard as a result, even taking the patron Rhalgr over Halone. She was too young to remember Ishgard, but knows well the danger to her family, keeping her connection to the Holy See a secret and going so far as to claim the Black Shroud as her place of birth.
Juniper Anarchy: A high ranking commander in a regiment of Ishgardian dragoons. Disgraced when, after a particularly harsh battle in which most of her regiment died, she was found in bed with her sister.

For reasons unclear he retired suddenly after his daughter was born and renounced his title, keeping a portion of the land on which to live and to herd sheep. Several years later both moved away from Coerthas to Gridania. Dyterium died of natural causes six moons before the Calamity.
