It's time for our Coup de Gravy!
~ Yew's catchphrase


Yew Geneologia is the sixteen-year old leader of the Three Cavaliers, bodyguards to Agnès Oblige, Pope of the Crystal Orthodoxy and the main protagonist of Bravely Second. Although he's excited to have the opportunity to serve under one of the heroes that saved the world, his plans are quickly derailed by the arrival of Kaiser Oblivion, who interrupted a peace treaty signing to kidnap Agnes. Despite Yew's best efforts, he is forced to watch helplessly as Oblivion abducts Agnes. By the time he awakens, the Glanz Empire has wiped out Eternia's forces and taken over Luxendarc. Undeterred, he obtains the help of two former Warriors of Light, Tiz Arrior and Edea Lee, as well as the mysterious Magnolia Arch, he sets out to rescue Agnès and restore peace to his homeland.
