From a scrap of paper fallen from a sheaf of notes sent by Archon Niniri Niri to Old Sharlayan via a boat out of Limsa Lominsa.
One might find the roots of Ms. Qesh in the entertainment spaces of Ul’dah, where the songs she sung enraptured even the surliest of merchants within the city. The songstress had a rather grander ambition however, and had joined with a number of other young luminaries of the city to gather political power by courting public opinion. Amongst this group were F’lhaminn and her lover, Niellefresne Thaudour, a goldsmith of note who was responsible for managing a grand parade throughout Ul’dah. They resolved to release a number of wild beasts within this parade before personally gaining control of them once again, making themselves heroes in the eyes of the people. The plan proved an absolute failure. They were not able to control the beast, a goobbue, which slew a man named Warburton, who would later turn out to be an Ala Mhigan spy of Garlemald whose true allegiance lay instead with his homeland. She resolved to adopt this man’s daughter, none less than the infamous Antecedent Minfilia Warde, known then as Ascilia. The tragedy did not stop there however, and Niellefresne was slain by an unknown assassin. F’lhaminn buried herself in delusion to blunt her grief, and she and the young girl who she had orphaned bonded over their shared tragedy, Ms. Qesh becoming the mother of Ascilia.
Most records indicate that F’lhaminn was believed dead in the wake of the Seventh Umbral Calamity, and yet despite this she seems to have emerged perfectly well a few years after the fall of Dalamud. After emerging back into public life, Ms. Qesh almost immediately re-integrated with the splinter Sharlayan group, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, who were being led by at the time by none other than her adopted daughter, then going by the name Minfilia Warde. She seems to have taken on an administrative role within the organization, assisting in its everyday function alongside the esteemed Tataru Taru.
Interestingly, F’lhaminn appears to be a Keeper of the Moon, physically, but her name is clearly one of the Seekers of the Sun. This could suggest that she represents a mix of the two race’s heritage. She apparently belongs to the F, or bear, tribe of the Seekers.
