A gigantic, armored figure who united the beastmen tribes across Vana'diel and lead them on an assault against the enlightened races in what has since been known as the Crystal War.

The former Talekeeper resists as best he can, but can't fight it directly and so leaves his fate in the hands of the adventurers.

  • Didn't See That Coming: If it weren't for Karaha-Baruha inventing a completely brand new type of magic to specifically beat Tzee and her army, she would have easily wiped Windurst off the map.
