"A modern-day scholar of medieval Ivalician history. Arazlam is also well known as an archaeologist and theologian, and many recall the controversy sparked by his interpretation of the Durai papers. He has penned such classic works as "The Enigmatic War of the Lions," "The True Saint Ajora," and "The Durai Papers: 400 Years of Truth.""

Arazlam Durai, also known as Alazlam Durai, is a minor character from Final Fantasy Tactics. He is the descendant of Orran Durai, the writer of the Durai Papers which was never published since Orran was executed for heresy. Arazlam claims to have rediscovered the report, curiously not destroyed by the Church of Glabados, and convinces the player that the so-called hero Delita Heiral was not who he seemed to be and that Ramza Beoulve was the real hero.

While the character is refered to as Alazlam J. D. and Alazlam J. Durai in the original Final Fantasy Tactics (his identity as a descendant of Orran not being revealed until the end of the game), the War of the Lions PSP port shortens his name to Arazlam Durai.

Other Appearances


Vagrant Story

"The body is but a vessel for the soul, a puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny. And lo, the body is not eternal, for it must feed on the flesh of others, lest it return to the dust from whence it came. Therefore must the soul deceive, despise and murder men."

Arazlam is credited as A. J. Durai in Vagrant Story, and the passage above is a quote attributed to him during the prologue of the game.


  • It seems that the events of the game take place 400 and some years before Arazlam Durai finds the papers as hinted by one of the books he wrote "The Durai Papers: 400 Years of Truth."
