At twenty-three, Cocobuki is the eldest of six siblings of Dunesfolk ancestry—Cocobygo, Cocobani, Cocobezi, Cocoboha, and Cocobusi. All are masters of the Thaumaturges' Guild, save for the youngest. In accordance with the sultana's will, they did much to calm the populace when riots broke out in the streets during the Calamity. For these acts, they were named guildmasters and successors to the former leader—a disgraced man named Mumuepo, convicted of embezzlement.
Among his brothers, Cocobuki usually takes the leadership role and is often described as the wisest among them. He first instructs thaumaturges on the nature of aether and arcane manipulation. After their first test, he sends guild members to each of his younger siblings to learn the chapters of Thaumaturgy: The Yawning Abyss by the renowned thaumaturge Zozomaya.
Cocobuki: Hm hm hm... So you wish to peer into the abyss of thaumaturgy? Who are you? Cocobuki: I am the Piercing Eye, the Duke of Destruction, the Archmage of Annihilation... though most of my colleagues simply call me "Cocobuki." Of the five thaumaturge brothers that claim the title of "Guildmaster," I am the eldest. I offer guidance to those wishing to explore the stygian chasm of our discipline, and instruct aspirants in the art of arcane devastation. It is also my role to encourage the accumulation of thaumaturgical wisdom through both theoretical and practical application. What is thaumaturgy? Cocobuki: Thaumaturgy is a form of arcane manipulation that allows the practitioner to unleash (his/her) will as deadly manifestations of primal power. The origin of our art can be found in the cumbersome magicks of our ancestors - subsequently focused and refined through their use in the funereal rites of the Order of Nald'thal. Though once used exclusively for the preparation of the dead, these incantations of destruction soon found new purpose on the battlefield. Hm hm hm... "Death," of course, is still very much the central focus of the discipline.
