Novv is a non-player character from Final Fantasy XIV. He is the principal character in the Sahagin Beast-Tribe quests.
Story[edit | edit source]
Clutchfather Novv leads a band of non-hostile Sahagin in the Halfstone area of Western La Noscea. He and is his clutch are introduced by rescuing a hyur boy that survived a Sahagin attack on a ship and returning him to shore. The child, Robyn, asks the kind sahagin be given a gift of gratitude for their rescue. Novv explains that since the Calamity, the Sahagin have begun to press into the Vylbrand coastlines in search of spawning grounds, bringing them into conflict with Limsa Lominsa and the Maelstrom.
Though he professes little love for the "shorewalkers," he believes they cannot survive if they are killing each other in these trying times. Thus, he and his clutch seek to mitigate the efforts of the war-like Coral Tridents and the reprisals from the Maelstrom.
Later quests reveal more on his back-story: fifteen years ago, he was once known as the "Scarlet Sea Devil," one of the fiercest and notorious Sahagin warriors. In recognition, the Indigo Matriarch awarded him his own clutch. However, after a successful raid, Novv returned home to discover most of his clutch was destroyed in a retaliatory strike by the Lominsan navy. In his grief, Novv eventually concluded he brought it upon himself due to his predations upon Limsa Lominsa, and vowed to end the cycle of bloodshed with his surviving children. His eldest surviving child, however, insisted on seeking vengeance for his slain siblings. Becoming the new Scarlet Sea Devil, he attempted to wage a new reign of terror against Limsa Lominsa, forcing Novv to defeat him in battle and show him the error of his ways.
