Lalafell WoL: When we walk together please take into consideration my tiny legs. I can’t keep up with you. Please think of my little legs when we walk because I don’t want to jog to keep up with you.
Estinien: Just get some roller skates and hold onto my sleeve, we don’t have all day

How Fordola Could’ve Made Lyse’s Story Better
Stormblood is one of those expansions that have characters people either love or hate.
Zenos.  Asahi.  Magnai.  Lyse.
Tumblr media
Though the latter isn’t a new character when Stormblood begins, she has a new feel, as the game portrayed her as Yda throughout the main story and Heavensward expansion, revealing at the last minute that she wasn’t actually Yda, but Yda’s younger sister.  Stormblood was supposed to be Lyse’s time to shine, to show her growth as no longer Yda’s doppleganger, but her own person, and a leader of Ala Mhigo at that.
And yet, when asked, most people would probably say that out of all the characters of Final Fantasy XIV, Lyse lingers towards the bottom of most memorable.  Her name doesn’t seem equal to powerhouses like Emet-Selch, Haurchefant, or Thancred.  And out of female characters, people are more apt to label women like Y’shtola, Venat, Alisaie, or even Yotsuyu as stronger personas.
But is Lyse really a poorly-written character?  Or was her story fleshed out too little too late?
Tumblr media
I won’t reiterate Stormblood as we’d be here a while, and everyone has their opinions on how Lyse was engaging or not.  What I will pose, however, is a question.
Could Fordola have made Lyse’s story better?
In the Tales from the Twilight short stories from the Lodestone, the story “Set with the Sun” tells the story of Fordola in her younger days.  How she lived in a Garlean-controlled Ala Mhigo and her thoughts on the resistance.  What stood out more than anything was the fact that Fordola was nearly captured by Garleans when she was younger.  However, an Ala Mhigan fighter was there, saving Fordola, yet losing her own life.
The fighter? 
Yda.
A huge reveal, especially when it comes to Lyse, who often bemoaned the fact that her sister didn’t get to live long enough to free Ala Mhigo and see the Garlean occupiers flee.  And though I’ve only played through Stormblood a few times, I have no recollection of Lyse ever finding out in game that it was Fordola who Yda died for.
Tumblr media
Think of the other expansions and the most memorable characters from them.  Now, think of who their enemy was.  Estinien and Nidhogg.  The Warrior of Light and Emet-Selch.  Aymeric and Thordan.  Memorable characters who had a personal connection with their enemy.  Estinien’s family was killed by Nidhogg, making him vengeful.  The Warrior of Light and Emet-Selch were once close friends in a past life.  Aymeric is Thordan’s secret son.
And even if we look at only Stormblood, think of the most memorable characters and their moments.  Who would you think of?  Magnai and Sadu, their over-the-top rivalry making even the Warrior of Light sweat.  Gosetsu and Yotsuyu, enemies who came to see each other as grandfather and granddaughter.  Hien and Yugiri, childhood friends who banded together to free their beloved Doma.
But with Lyse, we saw no personal connection to her enemy, Fordola.  To her, Fordola was just a bad Ala Mhigan who betrayed their people for the sake of Garlean respect.
But imagine, if you would, had we known of Fordola’s connection with Yda in Stormblood.  
Tumblr media
How would that have affected Lyse, knowing the little girl her sister died for grew up to betray their people and fight for the enemy?  How would it have affected Fordola, knowing the friend who died for her had a little sister who was now looking at her with fists clenched, ready to strike?
Their rivalry would’ve become more personal, yet also more dramatic, emotional, and memorable.
Lyse and Fordola have the potential of becoming amazing characters, and they had many shining moments in Stormblood.  But what hurt them was the lack of a personal connection in their rivalry.  Perhaps later on this connection will come about and we’ll see growth from them both because of it, making them more popular amongst other players.  Only time will tell.

A soul ov’ the sea appears n’ many colors. Some are transparent, others are mud and polluted unable to even be recognizable even to itself... And even if the surface appears th’ brilliant shades we’ve come to known. The depths contain a whole different level of discovery, struggles and turmoils, worthy of an equal charting. As someone young who couldn’t find lessons due to being too rebellious and b’ unwanted. I found a new teacher; within sea. Now a man or rather, a creature of nature, I found this is where I belong. I cannot escape it. Until Death do Part, I’ve a pledge to see. Finding something beautiful, there shouldn’t be ever moments wasted without air, or motion, of letting it know exactly how valuable it really is. From cross sea, to land, skies, t’ very stars, all that may be surround. I’m a greed of life.
