Symbol of the Crimson Blades

The Order of the Crimson Blades and Knights of the Cross (聖印騎士団クリムゾンブレイド, Sei'inkishidan Kurimuzonbureido), also called the Crimson Blades or just Blades, is a militia in Vagrant Story, and forms part of the Priesthood of St. Iocus. It acts on direct orders of Cardinal Batistum, and is lead by one Romeo Guildenstern. The Crimson Blades stand against the Parliament in politics, and against the cult of Müllenkamp in religious matters. Though it claims to be fighting out of religious indignation, the Crimson Blades' real goal is to obtain the power of the Dark, and with it, immortality for the Cardinal.

When Müllenkamp attacks the home of the Duke Aldous Byron Bardorba, the Crimson Blades jump at the chance to attack their enemy. Chasing the Müllenkamp leader, Sydney Losstarot, into the evil city of Leá Monde, the Crimson Blades begin a disastrous operation. The city's evil, along with the strength of Sydney and Riskbreaker Ashley Riot, soon sees most of the Blades' strength lost as their entire battalion is killed off. Guildenstern eventually betrays the Cardinal and attempts to take the power of Leá Monde for himself. Ashley Riot kills him before he can fulfill his plans. Of all the Blades sent into Leá Monde, only one, Lady Neesa, survives the attack.




Romeo Guildenstern

Guildenstern is the leader of the Crimson Blades, and is using the organization to obtain immortality for himself, and as he claims, for his lover, Lady Samantha He is a very powerful force in the power of the Dark, and his power is about equal if stronger than Sydney's. Guildenstern does not care for the number of men he will have to lose to obtain his ambition, and so his force is almost entirely wiped out.

Lady Samantha

Romeo's lover and faithful companion for most of the game. She has faith in her leader, but is the only one who shows any worry for the large loss in men.

Father Duane

A captain of the Crimson Blades, and one of the first to fall. His death by the hands of Ashley Riot causes his brother, Father Grissom, to be driven by revenge for most of the game.

Father Grissom

The brother of Father Duane, and a man desperate for revenge. He is willing to go so far as to sacrifice his own life to aid his personal cause or the cause of the Crimson Blades.

Lady Neesa

A loyal knight of the Crimson Blades, she often works with Sir Tieger. Neesa shows little care for the high casualty rate, in contrast to Lady Samantha.

Sir Tieger

A knight of the Crimson Blades, he is shown only with Lady Neesa. Tieger gives up his life so that she may live to tell to tale of what had happened in Leá Monde.

Faendos and Lamkin

Two grunt Blades who accompany Grissom into the Snowfly Forest. They both disappear in a quake, and are never seen alive again. Deeper in the forest, Ashley meets two Zombie Knights, presumably Faendos and Lamkin.

Final Fantasy X

Luzzu claims that the Crimson Blades was the name of the first company of soldiers formed by Lord Mi'ihen, and the precursor of the Crusaders. Mi'ihen made a deal with the Yevon clergy that his soldiers would serve Spira's peopla as guardians against Sin, which was the time when the change of name was agreed upon. However, they are in no way related to one another.
