Hi Aly! Yes, this is somewhat based on our character from Final Fantasy XIV [online MMO]. The dragoon is Vaelyn Nykah. This scene took place in a RP event a few months ago at the hot springs where he and some Garlean scouts happened upon her bathing. He had secretly held affections for her, but was duty-bound to Garlemald. This scene was sort of a turning point for both characters, because she was terrified of him but somehow knew he wouldn't harm her, and he would come to turn his back on his nation. I suppose there is a lot more to it than just that, but hopefully that gives a little background for those familiar with the characters.
For those familiar with the series, I have always felt that the dynamic between these two was very similar to that between Kain and Rosa from Final Fantasy IV, and they even kind of look the parts.
