WHO WE ARE
Welcome, one and all, to the Aetherwatch Society.
To the public, we are a group of Aetherical Redressers, offering a collection of healing, magical consultation, and similar services. We welcome people with medical, supernatural, and arcane problems at our door. Our staff of qualified members will assist in removing any magical dangers, healing wounds, and diagnosing issues.
We, at the Society, also find ourselves in the field, answering calls for aid, tracking leads on dangerous items, and working to clean up issues left in the wake of horrible events. Aetherwatch is not a place for heroes but an organization for caretakers.
Those entering our ranks find themselves serving under the leadership of the Medical Unit, The Aetherical Team, The Protection Unit or even working as scouts and information gatherers underneath our Investigations Group.
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
The 'Society' is run by Catherina Renard and Emeline Tousart, both incredible mages in their respective fields. They have worked hard to create a group that not only helps the everyday person against dark magical practitioners and horrible aetheric situations but one that also resolves the aftermath left behind.
Aetherwatch is a group of magically inclined individuals and those that safeguard them. These individuals refer to themselves as Redressers, those who serve selflessly in the pursuit of aiding, protecting, and handling dangerous situations and items.
Inside the walls exists a layered society of structure, mentorship, and close companionship. These three philosophies must exist to form bonds and develop trust. It takes a special kind of talent and many hands to maintain such an operation, and a mind steeled against the horrors and vile things that pour from the dark corners of the world.
The Redressers also exist to be the outward face of The Society, while protecting a secret from within...
This secret is known as the Midnighters. A few dedicated individuals picked from within and without that are brought in to hunt the darker parts of the world from blasphemous casters to twisted creatures. They are known to darker circles as hunters rumored to be working in an elaborate spider web of clans and like-minded organizations.
If you have such a mind to join the Redressers, then read on and learn of the ways in which the Aetherwatch Society recruits its loyal members.
The Aetherwatch Society was founded a little over three years ago by the eight members who stepped out of their everyday lives to build something bigger than themselves. Whether it was for redemption, to serve, to save, or for vengeance, these people were known as the Founding Circle. While the Circle still exists today, many have stepped up into the leadership of the Society to aid in the dangerous and fulfilling work taking place.
Aetherwatch has grown into a place where those with experience will find a home. Even those in need have crossed from patient or client to fighting and healing alongside the veteran members.
With the Final Days come and gone, there is now a need for the Redressers more than ever. Societies have risen and fallen, and in the midst, many have been taken advantage of by the cruel and dangerous.
Aetherwatch has continued its work within and beyond Eorzea, finding themselves in unknown and new territories to help those in need. They even work alongside their allies to bring aid to the people, pooling resources, and specialties.
The Legacy of The Midnighters
House Ornitier, an order of magic-users destined to fight a dark war against blasphemous mages, was founded during the Sixth Umbral Era, around nine hundred years ago. Based on the principle of one master, one apprentice, House Ornitier collected the lost scripts of the Third Umbral Era’s witch hunts to continue the battle against dark mages and otherworldly forces. For generations, radically destructive black magick was passed down and used as the weapon of choice, primarily the element of fire, called hellsfire, to cleanse evil and as a representation of the witch hunts.
During the Seventh Umbral Era, the lineage was severed when the black mage, Kino Kiari, succumbed to a doom spell, leaving an apprentice as the lone survivor to carry on the knowledge and history. That knowledge was discovered once more in the Seventh Astral Era, creating new clans of Mage Hunters that operate competitively in the shadows.
