Quest NPC

In an effort to unravel the mystery of Dalamud, the esteemed Hildibrand—agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire—was thrust to the heavens, never to be seen again. Carrying on the great detective's legacy, Nashu Mhakaracca works tirelessly to unravel the many mysteries which beleaguer Eorzea. With taverns throughout Ul’dah abuzz with talk of unusual zombie activity, her powers of deduction will soon be tested.

If ever there was a crime to be solved, Hildibrand would surely be there to crack the case. Perhaps the greatest case of his time was Dalamud, and the prophecy foretelling its descent. Believing himself a hero of destiny, Hildibrand did bravely propel himself into the moon's path, but, alas, was never heard from again.

“A Manderville is more than mere flesh and bone! He is vigor, compassion, honor— a gentleman for all seasons!”

Born to a wealthy Ul’dahn house, Hildibrand balked at the idea of inheriting the family trade, instead choosing to leave his home and travel the realm as a self-titled “agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire.” The Highlander has captured many criminals and saved more lives—though whether this was due to, or in spite of, his reasoning and gods-given wit is a matter of no small debate. To thwart the destruction of Eorzea, he embarked on a mission to the very heavens where he came perilously close to the red moon. It was at this time it is believed he was ensnared in some manner of Allagan device designed to keep its thralls in stasis. Hildibrand was effectively frozen in time, and until his return to the living five years later, many of his companions believed him dead, going as far as providing him with a burial fitting one of his status. The time spent in stasis seemingly had no effect on the gentleman inspector’s age, and he maintains the vim and vigor of a man of eighteen summers despite having seen twenty and three. His favorite food, incidentally, is Truffles à la Manderville. [1]
