Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn[]

Lolorito opposed the proposal to invite Doman refugees due to the ongoing issues with Ala Mhigans for the past few decades. His stonewalling of the proposal prompted his rival, Teledji Adeledji, to incite unrest among the refugee population.

Lolorito was revealed to be involved in the conspiracy that supposedly assassinated Sultana Nanamo Ul Namo and led to the apparent deaths of the majority of the leadership of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn.[2]

To spare The Bismarck a poor rating, the Warrior of Light must cook Lolorito a high-quality Smoked Raptor Haunch to sate Lolorito's appetite. He arranged for the Warrior to prepare a banquet for Sultana Nanamo Ul Namo's state visit to Admiral Merlwyb Bloefhiswyn. He had hoped to cause an embarrassment in retaliation for being humbled earlier, but the Sultana loved the banquet (much to his chagrin).

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Dewlala Dewla revealed Lolorito had caught up to Teledji Adeledji's assassination plan. Having no desire to have the Sultana killed, Lolorito had Nanamo's servant swap the poison with a potent sleeping potion while taking advantage of the situation to eliminate both Teledji and Raubahn Aldynn, two of his chief rivals. Lolorito gave the antidote to Raubahn who waked her up. Ilberd and the other traitorous Crystal Braves were in Lolorito's pocket from the inception of the company, but he broke his alliance with them once they attempted to execute Raubahn against his wishes.

As Raubahn and Nanamo returned to their duties, Lolorito revealed that the Garlean Empire had built a new super-dreadnought to replace the fallen Agrius, and had begun test flights.

During the Warrior of Light's pilgrimage, Nanamo reveals that due to his regret for his part for the troubles in Ul'dah, Lolorito had surrendered Teledji's assets and half of his own personal wealth to the crown. Whether this implies true remorse or a ploy is left unknown.

Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood[]

When the Scions arrived in Kugane, they were surprised to discover that Lolorito's business empire extended into Othard. They were greeted by his agent, Hancock, who informed them that Lolorito intended to aid their efforts to liberate Doma. He offered use of the Ruby Bazaar, the East Aldenard Trading Company's office in Kugane, as their base of operations. Although the Scions at first refused, not wanting to be in debt to Lolorito, they eventually agreed after being assured that Lolorito did not expect anything in return. Doma's liberation would aid his company's interests, so he was willing to help the Scions without any strings attached.

Lolorito had a niece named Liliju of whom he was extremely protective of. When she was captured during a bandit invasion of Kugane Castle, the Warrior of Light was tasked with rescuing her.

Following Ala Mhigo's liberation, the Warrior of Light and Nanamo summoned Lolorito in a secret meeting at the Waking Sands to ask of how they could best help to rebuild Ala Mhigo, using recently salvaged treasures of King Theodric to help fund their efforts. The three agreed to focus their efforts on the Saltery. To ensure trust, Lolorito removed his mask.

Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker[]

When Tataru Taru sent word to the nations of the world of Sharlayan requiring Allagan relics to power up their starship, Nanamo addressed the Syndicate to spare no effort to unearth them from Thanalan. She even ordered Lolorito to do his part in this effort, but permitted him to make profit, which pleases him. He put the Eastern Aldenard Trading Company to the work, and Hancock delivered his message to Sharlayan.

Characteristics[]

Appearance[]

Lolorito is a male dunesfolk Lalafell with light blond hair. He wears a mask and turban to conceal his face, hiding golden eyes.[1] This is shown in-game when Lolorito meets with Nanamo and the Warrior of Light in private.

Personality[]

A master of the business trade with powerful connections and vast wealth, Lord Lolorito is the most powerful figure in the city-state and ensures it stays that way. What motivates him most is the promise of profit. He will not consort to murder or other unsavory tactics to achieve a goal, but is not above conspiracy. He also does not have any qualms covertly doing business with the Garlean Empire if it helps his bottom line. A statue in his likeness stands at Vesper Bay.

Lolorito didn't partake in the assassination of the Sultana with Teledji Adeledji or the attempted execution of Raubahn with Ilberd, but used their plans to his advantage: He had his agents undermine the plans and use the ensuing chaos to eliminate Teledji and Raubahn.

Though scheming and Machiavellian, Lord Lolorito cares for his homeland of Ul'dah, and while he may be a Monetarist, he had no desire to harm the Sultana. Lolorito is more than willing to make unscrupulous and otherwise questionable plans to ensure Ul'dah's prosperity and that of his own wealth. He seizes control of Teledji's scheme for his own purposes of removing his rivals within the Syndicate and allowing the Scions of the Seventh Dawn take the fall. While the Scions would never truly trust Lolorito again, he attempts to make amends to them as well as the Sultana and does not appear to bear any ill will towards them.

Lolorito is politically and business savy. He was very worried about how the Sultana's plan to abdicate and turn Ul'dah into a republic would bring chaos and instability, which would threaten his bottom line. However, he also knew that Teledji's assassination plan would lead to the same outcome. Therefore, he undermined the scheme to save the Sultana while also making her realize that she needed to remain in power, and this also afforded him the chance to remove his rivals from the Syndicate. His relations with other organizations, such as the Scions, are built on how beneficial the relationship might be. In the Scion's case, he initially set them up to be expendable scapegoats for his role in the Sultana's assassination conspiracy, but later attempted to mend relationships and aid them, since the Scion's goals would clear the way for even greater profits. Lolorito has built a vast network of connections and seems to be aware of everything going on in the world, and his company has a foothold in nearly every market around the world. He caught wind that the Scions were travelling to Kugane, and contacted his representative in Kugane, Hancock, to aid the Scions.

The Sultana sees Lolorito as indispensable in the stability of Ul'dah and would make use of him. After the liberation of Ala Mhigo, the Sultana proposed a joint endeavor to reestablish the industry within the nation with a small share of the profits returning to Ul'dah. Impressed with her strategy and newfound maturity, Lolorito agrees to lend his business expertise to the plan.

Lolorito also appears to enjoy antagonizing and humiliating other people and businesses, if only for his pleasure. Lolorito is a self-described gourmand, someone enjoys fine dining, and has built a such a reputation that his personal review of a restaurant can make or break business for the establishment. He has such high standards that even the slightest imperfection would lead to a less than favorable review, and that in turn would cause the restaurant's profits to plummet dramatically. He was very impressed at the Adventurer's culinary skills and could not find a way to criticize their work. However, he is also petty. Afterwards, he sought to tarnish the Adventurer's culinary reputation by having them host the Sultana for a meal. While he was confident he would have his way, he was left dumbstruck when the Adventurer once again flawlessly pleased their guest.

Behind the scenes[]

If the final Culinarian quest is completed between the main scenario quests "The Parting Glass" and "Awakening in Ul'dah", Nanamo Ul Namo and Lord Lolorito will be anachronistically present at the state dinner, despite Nanamo presumably being dead in part due to Lolorito during this period. This may be because the quest chronologically takes place around the time of Operation Archon, regardless of the actual order a player completes them.

Voice[]

Lolorito is voiced by Cam Clarke in the English version. Since the release of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, Lolorito is voiced by Simon Greenall.

He is voiced by Hisashi Izumi in the Japanese version.
