Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Dyunbu is a sunseeker Miqo'te with gray hair and green eyes. Like many IVth legion soldiers, she wears a red Diamond Coat of Aiming and Diamond Boots of Casting. In battle Dyunubu wields a Zelkova Cane.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Dyunbu is a compassionate woman who cares deeply for her comrades and her cause. Where other major members of the IVth are often dismissive of the rank and file or too focused on their own obsessions, Dyunbu openly despairs at the deaths of her fellow soldiers. In skirmishes she attempts to convince the Bozjan Resistance that her cause is just and that they would see that if they would just stop and focus. She, however, lacks that same focus herself; she is too fanatical in her beliefs to really understand the Resistance, dooming them to conflict.

Story[edit | edit source]

Dyunbu's portrait in Field Record.

Orphaned at a tender age, Dyunbu grew up on the streets of Revenia. Though citizenship was not an unusual aspiration for those of her lot, she knew none who wanted it as badly as she did. Believing education to be the key to raising herself up, she took to stealing into the local school and learning as a student in all but name. Her efforts would not be in vain, for when she was eventually placed into imperial care, her impressive ability with letters came to the attention of officials, who sent her to be formally educated at the army reserve academy.

It was there that she first encountered Noah van Gabranth's ideology, and it resonated with her to the very core. In the years that followed, she would enlist in the IVth and become the legatus's staunchest adherent, fighting every battle and weaving every spell in the name of her dreamed-of utopia.

In the wake of Emperor Varis's assassination, the various wings of the Garlean military had braced themselves for another bloody war of succession, but few could have anticipated the unprecedented collapse of the chain of command in the motherland. Yet where others saw chaos, Dyunbu, a stout believer in van Gabranth's ideals, espied an opportunity to realize her commander's goal of establishing an independent new nation.

The Empire's seemingly inevitable disintegration had cast a pall of uncertainty over the fate of countless soldiers, and none felt greater apprehension than those who hailed from the provinces. To such weary souls separated from hearth and home, Dyunbu extolled the virtues of the cause, encouraging them to cast aside past allegiances and join her in the promised land, while making clear her vehement disapproval of those who would align themselves with the Resistance. Such unbridled zeal places her amongst van Gabranth's most loyal, and one cannot help but wonder whence arose her convictions. To find the answer, one must glimpse into her past and see the path she walked which led to her adopting the surname Potitus, common among Miqo'te with imperial citizenship.
