Personality[]

Yew is a strong brave character on the surface, but he has several personality quirks. He peppers his speech with references to "gravy", much to the amusement of his fellow party members. Yew often comes off as naive and frequently relies on his allies for courage and support either in dealing with his fears or a how to move forward. Yew suffers from multiple fears including ghosts and heights (so much that he breaks the fourth wall). He is a first class scholar and believer in the principles of the Crystalguard and his friends Janne and Nikolai as the "Three Cavaliers", however is forced to reassess his views during his travels and learns to be a braver person who stands up for what he believes in. Throughout his journey, he develops a particularly close bond with Magnolia that slowly turns romantic as the story progresses. Template:Char-stub

This is our coup de gravy!

Yew Geneolgia

Being of the Geneolgia family, who have been supporters of the Crystal Orthodoxy for generations, Yew was the second son of Griede Geneolgia. He and his older brother, Denys Geneolgia, were half-brothers. Though it had seemed that Denys would eventually become the head of House Geneolgia, Griede named Yew as his successor.

Yew opposed the verdict, but Griede tasked Denys with the impossible task of finding the Sword of the Brave in order to gain favor. Yew decided to help him find it and eventually located the blade for his brother. He wished upon the sword to make Denys the rightful heir, but the sword exacted a price for the wish: Denys's sword arm. Denys disappeared shortly after and Yew eventually trained to become a Crystalguard Knight. Before joining the Crystalguard, Yew left his native town of Gathelatio to spend four years studying abroad in Al-Khampis where he eventually obtained the illustrious rank of Six Stars, a feat only twenty-two other individuals had ever achieved. [1]

After barely surviving after Kaiser Oblivion's attack and kidnap of pope Agnès, Yew recovers enough to try and go after the kaiser and meets up with fellow Cavaliers Janne Angard and Nikolai Nikolanikov who despite trying to convince him otherwise. Eventually, all three travel through Pilgrim's Grove where the group is hampered by Yew's timidness and indecision to follow through on a basic plan of attack. The group then meets up with other members of the Crystalguard including the young Sir Othar Camlann who are ready to carry out their part of the plan as a distraction so that the Cavaliers can board the kaiser's flying fortress known as the Skyhold which is currently laying siege to Eternian Central Command. However, Nikolai decides to return to Gathelatio to tend to the wounded while Janne suggests to Yew to catch up on rest as he has just recovered and needs to be at full strength for the plan.

During the night, Yew is woken up by the cries by his fellow Crystalguard and finds that all the men had been slain and Janne standing over them. Initially thinking that Janne had escaped harm Yew discovers that Janne has betrayed the Crystalguard and now serves the kaiser. Janne offers Yew the chance to join, however, he escapes by jumping into the river out of the forest and heads back to Gathelatio where he finds Nikolai dying in the sanctum. Nikolai urges him to run from the fight and live out his life, while this has an impact on Yew he refuses to run as it is his duty to rescue pope Agnès. After returning to Pilgrim's Grove, Yew makes camp at his tent and rests, however he is attacked by Dark Vestal Bella. Luckily, he is saved by Edea Lee who escaped the Eternian Central Command and the two defeat Bella. Edea informs Yew that she escaped on advice from an old fortune teller where he would be and the trouble he was in, impressed by her presence, Yew agrees to travel to Eternia.

In Eternia, they meet up with the fortune teller who explains a plan to revive Tiz, who has been in a coma for two years with the use of a soulstone, but must make their way to Eternian Central Command which is still under occupation by the kaiser's troops. This causes the pair to traverse the Frozen Hollows to avoid the patrolling forces and stop at Gravemark Village to rest for the night. However, Yew is awakened by a loud sound and goes to investigate. He discovers a spaceship with an unconscious girl inside, so he uses a magnolia flower found nearby outside the crashed ship to revive her. The girl introduces herself as Magnolia Arch and reveals she is from the moon. The party makes their way through the Frozen Hollows, only to be ambushed by Bella and her servant Cú Chulainn. Though despite the enemies combined skills, the party defeats them.

Spoilers end here.


Gameplay[]

Like all characters in the Bravely series, Yew's appearance, stats, and abilities change depending on the currently assigned job, he is the only character to start at level 1. His stats are geared towards magic, which can benefit mage classes, such as Black Mage and Wizard. His high Dexterity can also be helpful for the Ranger and Hawkeye asterisks as well, the player should keep in mind however that base stats don't ultimately determine a character's competence on a particular job, and that any of the party members can do any job without major drawbacks due to stat differences.
