O is for Opals



O is for Opals, the sentient stones awarded to those who win the Outback's top dueling titles. The five Opals were originally awarded at the end of DQ XI (1997). Each of the stones provides the fighter holding it some access to its natural powers. MoonBeryl and PathFinder are attuned to Air and Earth respectively, while IceDancer and FireStar are quite obvious in their alignments. ShadoWeaver, the first Opal that Claire ever held, offers the manipulative power of shadow to its holder. Thus far Claire has held both ShadoWeaver and MoonBeryl though her time with the latter was much greater than the former. It's recommended that one be wary of their intrinsic nature, lest you find yourself under their seductive spell.

P is for Pulse



P is for Pulse, or more specifically Gran Pulse. Often known simply as Pulse to the citizens of Cocoon, it was a wild and inhospitable world that was framed as a source of conflict and strife to those residing in the broken dyson sphere of Cocoon that hung in Pulse's atmosphere. Like the god from whom the world got its name, Pulse is a savage place though at one point it was home to prosperous, advanced civilizations. The War of Transgression between Pulse and Cocoon wiped most of those civilizations out though, leaving only sparse nomadic tribes like the Farseers to occupy Pulse until the day that Cocoon fell from the sky. Many of Cocoon's inhabitants, or at least those that survived the day dubbed "Ragnarok" in historical analects, ultimately were forced to move to Pulse and eke out new cities and towns in the wild world below.

Claire's original hometown of Bodhum on Cocoon was reformed after Ragnarok on the shores of Pulse. It was aptly named New Bodhum. After the gate between the Seen and Unseen Realms was destroyed, Pulse was warped with the influence of Chaos and soon became known as Nova Chrysalia. Even after Nova Chrysalia was destroyed by Bhunivelze, Bodhum found its place in the new world of Chrysalia under the name Bodhum Tertius (or Third Bodhum).

Q is for Queen in Exile



With the death of Noctis, the capital of Lucis fell too, driving the King of Lucis out of Insomnia. Though not on Eos at the time, Claire and her children were also told to stay far, far away from the war torn realm. The woman that would one day be Queen was Queen-to-be no longer and her children, the eventual heirs to the Lucian throne, were robbed of their birthright.

R is for Rose Cottage



R is for Rose Cottage. Four hours north of Rhydin City sits a thirteen hundred square foot contemporary styled beach house nestled among sand dunes and tucked away from the worries of everyday life. Three cozy bedrooms, one and three-quarters bathrooms and one hell of a view welcome those who stay there. The waves crashing against the shore and the gulls that fly overhead are frequently heard sounds, the ocean only a short jaunt away. It isn't unusual to see surfboards planted in the sand just off of the main deck or other beach equipment dotted around the quaint house. The focal point of the living area is a wall of windows that overlooks the front deck and a heat-circulating fireplace that makes cooler nights comfortable without stifling the natural breezes that come in off of the sea. The living room area transitions into a small dining room and open country style kitchen. Set off of the kitchen, a mudroom keeps the beach's sand contained for the most part, as well as various beach equipment as needed.

S is for Sassy Owl Saloon



Located just east of the market square, The Sassy Owl Saloon is home to cozy booths, craft beers, and comfort food, made to order. Featuring both local and import brews, ask for the weekly special for seasonally rotating selections. Sassy Owl carries local favorites like Badsider and Silvermark as well as Terran favorites like Guinness and Sam Adams.

The L-shaped building features an entrance in both the front and the rear, the latter of which leads to an open air beer garden for Rhy'Din City's warmer nights. As you enter, a cherry wood bar lines the wall to the right while mismatched tables dot the barroom. Above the bar, flat screen TVs are mounted and regularly stream feeds from dueling events like challenges and the cyclical Warlord and Archmage Tournaments as well as the Outback's Diamond Quest. Around the corner to the left sits a cluster of booths, each lined with plush cushioning and adjustable curtains for privacy.

The menu features standard bar and grill fare as well as on request dishes to suit any taste. Ask and we will make it happen. Or try the ever popular Serah Special; double pepperoni and green olive pizza and a cold Guinness from the tap.

Wear your Team Dirty gear and receive 10% off your bill!

Open year round, 10a-Midnight daily.

T is for Twins



T is for Twins. Alexander and Averia are no less than the light of Claire's life, a veritable reason to keep on the straight and narrow when life wants to push her to one side or the other. Born over New Year's of 2014/2015, they arrived in Claire and Noct's life a few weeks early and in the midst of a rather violent conflict in Lucis. Since then, they've grown into vibrant and vivacious two year olds that have a perfect penchant for keeping their mother on her toes.

U is for Unseen Realm



U is for Unseen Realm. The Unseen Realm makes up half of the known universe where Claire comes from. Contrary to the Seen Realm, Unseen matter has no form. Due to this it is the natural location and source of Chaos. Between the two realms sits Valhalla (see V), the last stop before the souls of the departed pass on to eternity. For all that it sounds like a dark, foreboding place (it is), it also acts as the counterbalance to the Seen Realm, making it a necessary evil. Well, evil isn't exactly a good word for it, but still. It's certainly no sunshine and rainbows. As the holder of Etro's mantle (see E), Claire oversees the balance between the Seen and Unseen Realms, acting as a Gatekeeper of sorts between the lands of the living and dead.

V is for Valhalla



V is for Valhalla, the stepping stone between the Seen and Unseen Realms. Under a desolate sky, an abandoned city sits surrounded by a sea of Chaos. The quiet is deceptive though and Valhalla's deathbound nature makes is inclined toward sporadic timeline warps and perpetual battles between damned foes. From Valhalla, Claire can see the entire span of time, each possibility flowing outwards like silk threads that oft become tangled and knotted with one another. At the very heart of Valhalla sits the Temple of the Goddess Etro, reforged after the fall of Nova Chrysalia. As it did before Valhalla was first destroyed, the throne at the temple's heart sits perpetually empty.

W is for Wolves



W is for Wolves. The direwolf trio of Freya, Chronos, and Titan have been with tasked with the protection of Claire's twins, Alex and Avy, as well as Claire's goddaughter Adelaide. Rescued from the frozen wastelands of Rhydin's far north by Raven, Addie's mother, the orphaned pups were bottle fed and hand raised, trained until they were suitable companions for their young wards. Some might pause at the thought of having direwolves around young children but the dogs are incredibly protective but still quite gentle with each of the kids. Chronos and Titan have been with the twins since they were born and Freya has been with Adelaide since Addie was less than a year old and never are they far from each of the children, even if they aren't readily apparent.

X is for Xanthic



X is for Xanthic, of or relating to the color yellow or a yellowish color. A bit of a stretch, yeah, sure. But it's X. Yellow has been a dominant color for Claire since winning the MoonBeryl opal in July, and it is often found in her wardrobe or if not readily evident, in the form of tiny accents or even just the yellow opal on a thin string of paracord around her neck. Since giving up MoonBeryl in favor of a Diamond, the yellow is still there, though less blatant than before.

Y is for Yusnaan



Y is for Yusnaan, one of the last gatherings of humanity prior to Nova Chrysalia's end. Overseen by the Patron Snow, the city was awash in revelry, full of banquets and festivals even as the world's end came. Claire spent quite a bit of time there in the end of days, fighting against and eventually being reunited with Snow, her sister's ex fiance.

Z is for Zoo



Z is for Zoo, or at least the veritable menagerie that Claire keeps at the Caelum Manor acreage outside of Rhydin City. It started with Doom, a Bernese Mountain Dog. Doom was joined by Calliope the Pitbull-Poodle and Eclair the cat. Somewhere along the line she added Baxter the hound dog, a turtle named Shelly, Bacon the mini pig, Prickles the hedgehog, Squawks the chocobo, the direwolves Titan and Chronos (see W), a number of rabbits, and three horses (2 real, 1 robotic).
