Primales are not the original being, but are imitations or what would give form to one’s vision of that being. Therefore, the twelve themselves cannot be invoked in this way, but a primal in their image can be. So Gaius’s theory about the summoning of the twelve and the plan to summon Rhalgr was a bit wrong.
In Heavensward, Gaius’ theory that the Twelve are like primitive people has been largely proven wrong. The Warrior of Light learns that summoned primates are imitations and not original beings. This means if one of the twelve were summoned, it would only be someone’s vision and not reality.
The Primals (蛮神, Banshin?, lit. Savage Gods), also known as Eikons, are magical beings in Final Fantasy XIV worshiped by the Eorzean beast races. Classic Final Fantasy summoned monsters, they deal with both the Echo and the sudden new attacks of the Garlean Empire, who see them as a threat.
To do this, however, several Umbral Disasters must take place, destroying the Source and its many shards. There are three types of Primals found in A Realm Reborn and subsequent expansions: Primals, Eden’s Recreation, Lunar Primals.
It’s a juicy story, and while The Twelve isn’t based on a true story, co-creators Bert Van Dael and Sanne Nuyens spoke to several former judges while writing the series. “We really wanted to know what it was like to be in a jury room,” they told Variety in 2019.
The WoL is the separate soul of Azem, becoming a little less separate after being reunited with Ardbert. Azem was the assembly that sacrificed itself to become the heart of Hydalen (much like Elidibus was the heart of Zodiark). This essentially means that a WoL is a severed piece of the heart of Hydalen.
The Askers worship Zodiark as their god and their ultimate goal is to revive him and restore his power so he can destroy Hydaelyn.
Siren is a primal.
As the father of the first brood, Midgardsormr cares deeply for his children and laments the tragic fate that befell most of them: Bahamut’s death and “resurrection” as a primitive man, Tiamat’s sad captivity at the hands of the Allagan and Ratatoskr’s murder to Nidhogg’s endless hatred.
That the Warrior of Light is the 14th Ascian is pretty much confirmed as Hythlodaeus switches between him and her in dialogue depending on your character IIRC.
Shiva is the patron saint and primal of the Harriers and a boss in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn as she appears in the main scenario and as a super boss in an optional “Extreme”. fight.
Ifrit is an Esper who has had his magical power drained. He is acquired in the Magitek Research Facility after fighting as a boss. His attack is called Hellfire (Inferno in the SNES and PS translations), costs 26 MP, has a Spell Power of 51 and cannot be blocked. He teaches Fire (x10), Fira (x5) and Drain (x1).
There are twelve deities worshiped in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Each represents a different aspect of life and caters to a specific element.
