A young man spoken of in stories from the faraway land of Eos. Gladiolus is the eldest son of the Amicitia family charged with the protection of the kings of Lucis and their household, and was thus admitted into the Crownsguard. There he was trained in combat since childhood to fulfill the duties of his prestigious house, and was eventually tasked with teaching a young Prince Noctis to master the sword. Although his first impressions of the prince were not the best, he has known Noctis for more than 10 years now, and considers him an irreplaceable friend.
