Who Is Jote?

Once you reach the residence in Tabor, a cutscene will play in which Jote will appear for the first time. Initially, the subtitles will address her as ‘Joshua’s attendant,‘ after which she introduces herself.

I am Jote. Knight of the Undying, charged with protecting His Grace, Joshua Rosfield, Keeper of the Flame of the Phoenix.

 Through any cutscene, you can use the Active Time Lore feature to learn more about characters or events that are relevant to the cutscene. It is a fantastic feature that lets you keep up with the storyline.

Jote’s Role In Final Fantasy 16

Fans on Reddit and other platforms were very disappointed at the lost potential between Jote and Joshua. Players grew very fond of her, and it would have been amazing if Jote had a more significant role in the storyline.

Even though Jote was allegedly a great fighter, we never saw any of her skills in that regard. She was an essential medical team member in the hideaway. Nevertheless, she was a caring and kind soul that fans adored and were rightfully bummed out by the lack of screen time she got.

My Verdict

Jote quickly became one of my favorite characters. Her loving bond with Joshua and unwavering dedication to protecting him made their moments together quite touching. I wish we could have seen more of Jote in action and the storyline.

But overall, her role as Joshua’s caring guardian resonated with me and added heartfelt emotion to the game. Jote is a character that left an endearing and lasting impression.
