The Twelve's Scribes

"Twelve in one, and one in Twelve." The words of the old Archons were taken to heart by the Twelve's Scribes, for they believed that the Twelve were not separate gods, but rather aspects of one god. They believed that each aspect must be equally respected, and their wills interpreted in their greater context of the star. Through understanding of the Twelve's true nature, they sought to put an end to the wars waged in their names.

The Scribes adventured for over fifteen years, before they disbanded in the wake of the Ala Mhigan revolution, after the loss of their leader. The survivors scattered across the far reaches of Eorzea and struggled to carry the light on their own. Twenty years later, the five remaining members, now greater in age but still possessing the power of the Echo, would regroup to once again come to Eorzea's defense.

Twelve in one, and one in Twelve. Have you forgotten?

...

Who will take the light from our hands? There are none left. Our children were slaughtered before our eyes.

He can't even lift his father's sword, much less wield it.

To Lang Dauphinet:

It's been damn near impossible to get a message into Ishgard. I can only pray to the Wanderer for this one to get through. I'm sure even you've heard news of the Imperial legion preparing for invasion, unless you've been actually living under a coblyn. You were always the Fury's lance, so spare some of her justice for the rest of us, won't you? We need you here.

Your friend,
R. V.

Lybek Weyr

Scribe of Rhalgr

Epithet Lybek Fairscribe
Age 48 †
Job BLM

The leader of the Twelve's Scribes. Lybek was formerly a monk of the Fist of Rhalgr, but after he awakened to the Echo, he renounced his affiliation in order to journey across Eorzea. He gained mastery of conjury and thaumaturgy through self-study, and founded the Scribes in accordance to his visions.

By all accounts, he was a gentle and merciful man, an image seemingly at odds with his faith in the Destroyer. Yet his peacefulness did not equate to inaction, as many who dared to threaten him have found out.

Although he was dedicated to fighting for Ala Mhigo's liberty against King Theodoric's tyranny, he did not particularly get along with Curtis Hext, the Resistance leader. Curtis thought that having a prophet of Rhalgr on the Resistance's side would greatly bolster the people's morale. However, Lybek had a great distaste for this notion, and refuted any rumours that he had a direct connection to Rhalgr.

During the Ala Mhigan Revolution, the Scribes were raided by Theodric's forces. Lybek was captured and executed from atop the Divine Audience.

[...] I do not know how to reconcile the Lybek I knew with the martyr he became. That day ended in blood, as Theodoric ordered every witness slaughtered. My beloved mentor, who turned away from the Destroyer’s sect, who taught us to cherish every life no matter how insignificant, must have known that he was condemning the hundreds of people he looked upon to die with him. For all his uncanny foreknowledge, did he not see that in the end, their sacrifice would merely trade one kind of tyranny for another?

Now retired, she can often be found tending to her cottage garden in the Lavender Beds, though she enjoys dusting off her old weapons once in a while when the opportunity for adventure arises.

A familiar face unexpectedly showed up on her doorstep one day, someone she hadn't seen in nearly twenty years. She learned about the life he built and lost to his mistakes, and seeing how he had nowhere else to go, she invited him to stay with her for a time. In truth, she was glad for the company of an old friend.
