Nhaza'a Jaab is a non-player character from Final Fantasy XIV. A dreaded sellsword of dark repute known as the Ebon Claw, he is the main antagonist of the Allied Beast Tribe final quests.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Nhaza'a Jaab is a Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te with dark skin, blond hair, and pale blue eyes. He wears a black shirt, white trousers, black leather boots, and a black eye-piece over his left eye that gives a sinister red glow. In private he tends to lounge around naked save for leopard-print undergarments.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Nhaza'a is sadistic and cruel, often taunting and belittling his foes. He has no qualms about performing Memeriga's dirty work, and shows no remorse for complicating in the deaths of hundreds of innocent beastmen. His true desire is to find a worthy foe to match his strength.

A Realm Reborn (2.0)[edit | edit source]

Nhaza'a Jaab is on a skiff with a captured Sahagin clutchling. Clutchfather Novv boards his ship intent on rescuing his son, but a diversion caused by the vessel striking rocks leaves Nhaza'a an opening to throw knives at Novv, who falls into the water.

Later investigations of his activities in Outer La Noscea reveal he has access an airship, and a run-in with the Ehcatl Nine reveals he is flying a rare Garlond Ironworks Model 1569-II. This allows Nhaza'a to be traced to his employer in Ul'dah, Memeriga of the "Laughing Alchemists." The Sister of Ash Loonh Gah discovers he is staying at a room in the Platinum Mirage. Confronting him in his private room, Nhaza'a reveals Memeriga is preparing to raise an army of undead beastmen at the Invisible City in Eastern Thanalan.

During the showdown, Nhaza'a Jaab confronts the leaders of the friendly beast-tribes atop the ruins. He deflects Novv's spear into the chasm with a sword swipe, and Hamujj Gah takes the initiative, using elder Frixio's wards to deflect his knives. With the sellsword caught off guard, Novv uses an Ixal blade to deliver an explosive strike against Nhaza'a, who feigns defeat and falls off the cliff. He appears on his airship, vowing revenge as he flees. Several kobold bombs are on board the ship, and he realizes too late as 789th Order Pickman Gi Gu detonates them, destroying the airship.

Stormblood (4.0)[edit | edit source]

Nhaza'a Jaab is hired by Kageyama to obtain a trio of mythical treasures known as the Three Wonders—a mermaid's flesh, the Jewel of Fair Souls, and the Philosopher's Fin—so that Kageyama might trade them for a noblewoman's hand in marriage. After stealing Tsukumo from the Kojin Kabuto, Nhaza'a retires to Kugane's hot springs to rest. There he finds the Ananta princess Alpa and, concluding that she is "close enough" to a mermaid, kidnaps her. With J'olhmyn, Kabuto, and the Warrior of Light in pursuit, Nhaza'a makes for the Dawn Throne in the Azim Steppe and kidnaps the Namazu Gyorei for her fins.

Nhaza'a returns to Kageyama's ship in Kugane to deliver the "Three Wonders," but as he prepares to kill Alpa he is intercepted by J'olhmyn, the Warrior of Light, Kabuto, and several Namazu. Though he contemplates fighting, the arrival of the Sekiseigumi instead prompts he to flee in a small boat. He bails out after M'zhet Tia hurls a grenade into the boat and is dragged under by a shark. M'zhet later finds his mask floating in the water.
