Yang's Carrd

Yang Wen-li is a self-taught historian and owner of First Edition. Growing up in an occupied territory, books were his only window into freedom. Now in Eorzea, he seeks to share his passion for the written word. He loves green tea and sleeping late into the afternoon.

Ama'drien Amaro is the co-founder of First Edition—as without his insistence that Yang's personal collection was taking over their free company hall, First Edition wouldn't exist. He takes pride in cashing people out and serving up the snacks and tea. He loves the rolanberry cake and Yang.

Ama'drien's Carrd
Tali'ra's Carrd

Tali'ra Illucien is a antiquarian, scribe and all around book lover. While an avid collector for himself, his true passion comes from sharing knowledge and so he rescribes literature in danger of being lost to time for the enjoyment and enrichment of others. His favorite dessert is honey glazed doghnuts.

Admiral is the resident caretaker and loss prevention expert. Pay no attention to his habit of resting on top of books and/or looking on from high places—it's how he earns his keep. First Edition can neither confirm nor deny his military rank.
