The Evolution of the Female Hrothgar Design in Final Fantasy 14

Final Fantasy 14 players have been eagerly anticipating the introduction of the female Hrothgar race, and it seems that the final design almost took a different direction.

The development team at Final Fantasy 14 follows a unique process for creating their characters. They hold internal competitions where artists are given the lore of the race and tasked with coming up with designs that capture the essence of the race. This process was followed for the Viera and male Hrothgar races as well.

For the female Hrothgar, the artists proposed eight different designs initially. From those eight, three were selected as finalists, and the game’s director made the final decision. He admitted that he was torn between a design that was popular internally and had a smaller, cuter build, and one that reflected the typical characteristics of a female Hrothgar – strong and nimble.

Ultimately, the director chose the design that showcased the “strong and nimble” build. He wanted the female Hrothgar to exude athleticism and power, aligning with the race’s characteristics. This decision resulted in the current design of the female Hrothgar, which can be seen in characters like Wuk Lamat.

They have been playing the game for over a decade and even had a chance to become a community representative. Unfortunately, they didn’t succeed in the interview process with Square Enix. However, they did get the opportunity to voice a character in the game, which more than made up for it.
