D.O.B: September 25th
Family: Yuna (Daughter)
Relationship Status: Taken
Personality & Appearance: Braska is a tall man with long silver hair, and blue eyes, from which Yuna inherited her one blue eye. He is dressed in an elaborate robe of red and two dark shades of reddish purple. The robe looks like it is made of broad petals or leaves, and has long wide sleeves that fall to cover the hands, and the upper part of the chest is tan, and has a tall folded over collar, held closed by dark strings. Over the robe is a wide pale gray sash covered with a design of connecting circles and lines in black and white. Braska wears an elaborate headdress that somewhat resembles Middle Eastern headgear. It is dark blue, completely covering his head and falling round the front under his chin. It is held in place by a white band with a black line in the middle, surmounted by a blue stone in the front center and three horn like pieces- one white with a black line in the middle, set behind the stone, from which trails a long white band, ending a black and white circle and a scalloped piece, and two longer white-gray ones on either temple. On each side hangs a large pale blue tassel held by a black-and-white bead.
Story: Braska was a priest of Bevelle who visited the Al Bhed in the hopes of furthering relations with them and the Yevonites. He fell in love and married the sister of Cid, the Al Bhed leader. When Yevon discovered this, Braska was cast out of the clergy, and his wife was similarly disowned by Cid, though tensions on both sides lessened somewhat after Yuna’s birth. When Yuna was four-years-old, her mother traveled to Bikanel to mend the ties with her family but her ship was attacked by Sin and she was killed. After this event, Braska resolved to become a summoner and defeat Sin to stop anyone else from suffering as he did. The priests of Bevelle and many other Yevonites looked down on him because of his choice of bride and half-breed daughter, and did not truly believe that he could complete the pilgrimage. Braska chose Auron and Jecht as his guardians, as they too were held in similar regard. After he sacrificed his life for the Final Summoning, a statue of him was raised in each of the Temples of Yevon in Spira. However, during the events of Final Fantasy X, a monk in the temple at Besaid tells the player that it took more than ten years for the temple there to receive a statue of Braska following his rise to High Summoner. On the slopes of Mt. Gagazet, Braska left a video sphere for Yuna, letting her know that whatever path she chose for her life, he would be proud. Throughout the game, if you revisit certain places, you can find more of these spheres telling of Auron, Jecht, and Braska’s journey through Spira.
Braska has no been revived and is living in Besaid. He is very proud that his daughter defeated Sin permanently, though he is upset with himself over that fact that he couldn’t which made his daughter have to risk her life.
