Meet Noah Atlin!
Noah? You mean Allagan Noah?
Come on, now. You didn’t think I’d be doing something that wasn’t Allagan related, right?
Anyhow. So this is my headcanon Noah – the same great archmagus who trained Une and Doga. The one who got her soul stuck in an artifact, which Koh later discovered when Syrcus Tower was open to the scholars, and led to the in-game predicament of Noah soul sharing Koh’s body.
Bad life choices, Noah.
We know very little of Noah’s personality aside from Koh’s entry in the offical lore book:
Koh Rabntah is a researcher with the Sons who, when exploring the newly unearthed Crystal Tower complex, came upon an orb of mysterious origin. Upon closer examination, she awoke the soul that slumbered therein – Noah, the famed Third Astral Era archmagus of Allag and the court-appointed instructor of Unei and Doga of the imperial family. In that moment, Noah’s spirit escaped its crystalline gaol and flowed into Koh’s body, taking possession of it as a temporary vessel.
Koh and Noah are as different as north and south. Noah displayed great passion toward both her research and apprentices, and was known to oft behave with wild abandon. Indeed, it appears that the imprisonment of her spirit was the result of an uncontrolled bout of simple curiosity.
Koh, by contrast, is a woman as timid as she is shy. When the archmagus returns control of her body – usually after an extended night of drink and debauchery – the Keeper of the Moon is in a constant state of fluster, owing to the excess attention Noah commands while she is in control.(Referenced from Encyclopedia Eorzea, Page 200)
In my own writing, I’ve toyed with the idea that Amon would find a way to separate the souls of Koh and Noah, by giving Noah a cloned form of her old body to inhabit. I haven’t written it yet, but if I do, this is what I felt Noah might look like. From the description above, it seemed to me that a spunky, spirited Highlander woman would fit the bill!
