The siblings.

Six moogle siblings (モーグリ六兄弟, Mōguri Roku Kyōdai?) is a group of moogle siblings from Ivalice. While they appear in multiple games, the only game to feature all six is Final Fantasy XII. Final Fantasy XII Scenario Ultimania gives an English name—"Moogle Brothers"—even though one of the siblings is a sister[1]. The group hasn't been referred to as any specific name from an English source.

Not a lot is known of the siblings' past, except that they were taught by a master whom Yiazmat killed. Montblanc, the oldest sibling, swore to avenge their master and bring his siblings back together.

List of siblings[]

Montblanc[]

Montblanc.

Montblanc is oldest brother who formed Clan Centurio to find a warrior powerful enough to vanquish Yiazmat to avenge the siblings' slain master. He was the first sibling to appear in the series, in Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, along with Nono. He has then appeared in Final Fantasy XII and Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. He wears a green shirt, brown pants and has a yellow pompom.

Sorbet[]

Sorbet.

Sorbet is the second brother. He works at the Moogling station in Rabanastre, along with Horne and Hurdy. He is known for his clumsy but sweet personality. Besides Final Fantasy XII, he stared in a flash game named Dive II Hunt: The Adventures of Sorbet. He wears yellow clothes and has a yellow pompom.

Horne[]

Horne.

Horne is the third brother who also works at the Moogling station in Rabanastre. He is known for his likeness to items. He has made an official appearance in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, in Chapter 4: "Hurdy Runs for the Hills" of the side story. He wears red clothes, glasses, and has a red pompom.

Nono[]

Nono.

Nono is the fourth sibling. He is a mechanic who is usually related to airships, working as head mechanic of the Strahl in Final Fantasy XII. He is the only moogle sibling to appear in Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings. Nono is a minor character, but still important to the plot of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance where he requests help to his brother on a storyline mission that introduces the player to the Jagd mechanics.

Later on he works on his merchant-airship, which serves not only as a shop in-game, but also as a link-system that involves using the cable-link to acquire more powerful and rare items. He is the one who works on Marche Radiuju's present, which finally gives him access to the palace to meet Mewt Randell. He wears a green jumpsuit and has an orange pompom.

Hurdy[]

Hurdy.

Hurdy is the last brother with a twin named Gurdy. He used to work at the Moogling station with Sorbet and Horne, but he turned into a Bard, playing music across Ivalice. He appears in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, replacing both Montblanc and Nono as the game's "storyline moogle" as Montblanc is an optional character. He wears blue and has a blue pompom. A section of the Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Side Stories was about Hurdy greeting his siblings before he leaves Rabanastre, the siblings' home city.

Gurdy[]

Gurdy.

Gurdy is the only sister and Hurdy's twin. She runs the chocobo ranches in Final Fantasy XII. She has a cameo along with Ritz at the beginning of Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift. She wears a pink and tan dress and has a pink pompom.

Other media[]

All of the six moogle siblings appear as gold statues in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift when Missions are completed. The first one is in the shape of Montblanc, while the last one is Hurdy playing a flute. One of the statues would appear after every fifty mission the player completes, and the final statue of Hurdy would be obtained after two-hundred and fifty missions are completed. There are, however, only five statues because Horne and Sorbet both feature on the same statue.

A Final Fantasy XII Christmas wallpaper of the six moogle siblings was released in the official website, and also in form of a greeting card.

The moogle siblings appear on the back covers of the Final Fantasy XII manga.

The Brothers Kupomazov.

There was an allusion to the siblings in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival in Final Fantasy XV. In "The Brothers Kupomazov" quest, the player must find six moogle dolls that are said to be siblings, and they are named after the moogle siblings from Ivalice.

Etymology[]

The moogle's Japanese name, Mōguri (モーグリ), is a portmanteau of the words for mole (土竜, mogura?) and bat (蝙蝠, kōmori?). "Moogle" is the localized version of Mōguri, losing the pun, though "moogle" has started to appear in Japanese sources as well.

The Japanese word 兄弟 (kyōdai?) meaning "brother" or "brothers" combines the characters for "older brother" (, ani?) and "younger brother" (, otōto?). Similarly the word 姉妹 (shimai?) combines the characters for "older sister" (, ane?) and "younger sister" (, imōto?) to mean "sister" or "sisters". However, 兄弟 (kyōdai?) is commonly also used to refer to siblings in general, hence the confusion with the moogles sometimes being referred to as "brothers" despite one of them being female.
