Cidolfas Orlandu

One of the great warriors of the Fifty Year War in the land of Ivalice, his swordsmanship is second to none. He is the leader of the Nanten Knights, which come from the kingdom of Zeltennia, where Prince Goltana is in power. His greatest friend and rival was Balbanes Beoulve, the "Heavenly Knight" of the Hokuten (the rival clan of the Nanten). During the Fifty Year War, both Orlandu and Balbanes produced many victories over the invaders, despite the fact that they were vastly outnumbered. However, Balbanes died from cold complications after the Fifty Year War ended, leaving Orlandu the undisputed number one warrior in Ivalice. During the "Lion War" in Ivalice, Orlandu became one of the leaders of the motion to stop the fighting-for his efforts, he was stripped of his rank and imprisoned as a traitor by Goltana, the man he had faithfully served for over twenty years. Goltana gave the orders to execute Orlandu at Bethla Garrison for committing treason, but Orlandu was rescued by Ramza, the youngest son of Balbanes. He is currently working with Ramza and his troops to end the war and expose the injustices and atrocities committed by the Glabados Church.
