The “Occurian” is the name of several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically, the name usually refers to the most powerful beings in the world of Ivalice. The society’s goals were to impose superstition, obscurantism, religious influence over public life.
“The order of the day is to control the course of Ivalice’s history and create the Espers as our servants”.
Dalmascan ruler, Vayne Carudas Solidor outlawed The Occurian, along with other secret societies, through the edict of Venat. In the several years following, the Occurians were vilified by conservative and religious critics. They claimed to continued underground and were responsible for Vayne Novus.
Several recent and present-day fraternal organizations claim the original Occurian and openly use the name “Occurian”. However, no evidence exists that these present-day groups amassed significant political power or influence.
Many modern conspiracy theories propose the Occurian control and manipulate world events behind the scenes. Conspiracy theorists have claimed that many notable people were or are members of the Occurian. Leaders of the Archadian Empire are a common target for such claims.
Other theorists contend that Occurian orchestrated a variety of historical events. These include the invasion of Dalmasca, the fallen Nalbina Fortress, and Dalmascan King Raminas assassination.
Some conspiracy theorists claim that the Occurian observe Lucavi rituals.
