Fufulupa would entrust you with a matter of grave import.
— In-game description
- Fufulupa would entrust you with a matter of grave import.
- Fufulupa reveals that he has found a sealed letter addressed to Sultansworn Owyne among his disgraced predecessor's belongings. Uncertain of what to make of his discovery, he bids you deliver the letter to Momodi of the Quicksand, a steadfast supporter of the royal family.
- Momodi does not hesitate to brush aside your concerns, assuring you that Owyne would never betray the sultana. However, she has her own suspicions regarding the letter...
Fufulupa: I salute you, honored friend. As acting captain, I should be much obliged if you would grant me a personal request.
Fufulupa: In our efforts to ascertain the full extent of the former captain's corruption, we have been poring over his personal correspondence.
Fufulupa: Our search unearthed this sealed letter addressed to a man named Owyne.
Fufulupa: But he is one of the Sultansworn elite! I can think of no reason why he should have any dealings with Baldewyn!
Fufulupa: We now know that the former captain was consorting with a coalition of criminals... Could it be that Owyne was, too!?
Fufulupa: This letter may well serve as evidence of their collusion, and so I dare not tamper with it myself.
Fufulupa: But given the events of recent days, I knew not whom to trust with this information─until now.
Fufulupa: I have chosen you, [Forename]. Pray bear the letter to Mistress Momodi of the Quicksand, and relate the circumstances of its discovery.
Fufulupa: Not only is she a staunch supporter of the sultana, but she is well acquainted with the Sultansworn. She will know how best to proceed.
Show the letter to Momodi.
Momodi: Ah, [Forename]! It's been too long! Dadanen tells me you've been keepin' busy in Horizon.
Momodi: I want you to know that I'm grateful for everythin' you've done for the people of Ul'dah.
Momodi: Even though you've seen the seedier side of our city, you've continued to help your fellow man. Believe me, the folk around here love you for it.
Momodi: Hmmm? What is it? You look like you've got somethin' to say.
Momodi: ...So that's what this is all about.
Momodi: Fufulupa's thinkin' Owyne might've been in league with Baldewyn─that this letter could be proof of somethin' shady.
Momodi: Well he needn't worry. Owyne's as loyal a Sultansworn as I've ever known. I haven't the foggiest what this says, but─
Momodi: Wait a minute. Wasn't Owyne the one who...?
Momodi: Oh, hells... I've got a bad feelin' about this.
Momodi: Listen, [Forename]─I think I know what this is all about, but I need you to swear to keep it quiet.
Momodi: If you'd rather wash your hands of this business, I won't hold it against you. But if you're determined to see it through to the bitter end, say the word and I'll explain.
