The Clutch

Overview

The Clutch (クラッチ狭間 [clutch hazama] or 'clutch valley' in Japanese) is a valley in central Thanalan. It is located to the east of Black Brush and to north/north-east of Four Sisters, right along the Royal Allagan Sunway. Continuing the Sunway to north-east will take a traveler to Sandgate in eastern Thanalan. After the destruction the Calamity wrought, it is the only remaining direct route towards Gridania1 far to the north-east.

The Clutch is a fairly unremarkable place, aside from the large lake stretching to its south. It isn't known if this is a retcon or another result of the Calamity, but this unnamed lake was not present on the maps in version 1.x. Either way, the summer house of Eolande Quiveron once stood on the cliffs surrounding the valley, although it was destroyed in the Calamity.

The Clutch wasn't named as such in version 1.x. As the Royal Allagan Sunway passes through it however, it is likely this is meant to be the north-eastern part of the old extended Black Brush area.

Locations

The Quiveron Manse

The Quiveron Manse (キヴロン別宅跡 [quiveron bettaku ato] or 'ruins of the quiveron secondary residence' in Japanese) is what remains of the summer house of Eolande Quiveron, who was a member of the Syndicate before the Calamity. The house was destroyed in the Calamity and with Eolande's death there was no one with interest to rebuild it. In the present day, the ruins provide shelter to various bandits who prey on travelers of the Sunway below.

The Unholy Heir

The Unholy Heir (アンホーリーエアー [unholy heir] in Japanese) is a gigantic boulder that fused with a shard of Dalamud's outer shell in the Calamity. Scholars have since pronounced that the shell was made of dark matter.
