The story of Aeon is an original concept set within the lore of FFXIV's world, Hydaelyn.
Eras ago, a powerful aetherial weapon was shattered into countless pieces by a band of heroes. To prevent it from ever being remade and wielded, a spell was cast over the shards of the weapon; each would travel through the aether to find sanctuary within the body of a soul who would act as its host and guardian until their dying day.
Those who bear a shard develop a distinctive runic mark on their skin, and as such have come to be known in certain esoteric circles as the Branded. These marks forge a unique connection between the Branded, gifting them with the ability to ‘see’ each other over vast distances, and share thoughts and experiences over their telepathic ‘link’.
The existence of the Branded is not a complete secret, however. There are many who would seek to collect the shards and take their power for their own.
The Branded must find and ally with one another, and swiftly; for there are hunters closing in from the shadows...
