I am the Piercing Eye, the Duke of Destruction, the Archmage of Annihilation... though most of my colleagues simply call me "Cocobuki." Of the five thaumaturge brothers that claim the title of "Guildmaster," I am the eldest. I offer guidance to those wishing to explore the stygian chasm of our discipline, and instruct aspirants in the art of arcane devastation. It is also my role to encourage the accumulation of thaumaturgical wisdom through both theoretical and practical application.
Profile[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Cocobuki is a Dunesfolk Lalafell wearing a black cowl. He is wearing a full set Darklight armor, minus the accessories. His Darklight Cowl of Casting is of a unique design, omitting the usual ornate patterning on the sleeves and back. Much of his face is partially covered with bandages.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Eldest of six brothers, he assumes the role of a parental figure, taking on the "responsibility for their misadventures". A private person by nature, he takes great effort in keeping his familial life separated from his work. Upholding a stoic presence of professionalism, personal strife (as illustrated by the dramatic events involving his youngest brother, Busi) impassions him to outburst, resulting in his great embarrassment.
Surprisingly empathetic for a person who tries to be objective, a dark sense of humor may sometimes accent his words of encouragement. He favors arrangements of mutual benefit when confronted with conflicting situations. Often playing the moderator in events involving a disagreement in viewpoints between parties.
Second only to family, his self proclaimed duty in life concerns the amasment of knowledge and forming a foundation for future generations.
Story[edit | edit source]
The day after the Battle of Carteneau, Cocobuki and his brothers formed a posse with Sultana Nanamo Ul Namo to restore order to Ul'dah in the immediate aftermath. After the previous guildmaster, Mumuepo, was arrested on charges of embezzlement, the thaumaturge brothers became joint Guildmaster of the Thaumaturge Guild.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Cocobuki is the guildmaster of the Thaumaturge guild who assigns low level thaumaturge quests.
