A giant tiger and son of the legendary beast that fought and befriended King August. After his father was killed he was raised by Morimar and remains his companion

  • Interspecies Friendship: With hume's like Morimar and August and Darrculin the tiger.

  • Foil: He is this to the Zilart princes. Both of them where villains with good standing in their countries who are looking to disrupt the cycle of souls and both try to destroy Vana'diel after their plans are foiled. The big difference is that the Zilart princes where trying to open up the gates to paradise, which would result in the destruction of Vana'diel, Hades wants to flood Vana'diel with darkness in order to halt the cycle of souls
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Teodor implies that He was at some point a Well-Intentioned Extremist. By the modern day he is so caught up in his goals that he has regressed beyond even that

  • Taking You with Me: After being beaten in both forms he draws to drown the world in darkness. Fortunately, he stopped by King August

  • Was Once a Man: He was a man when he first started studying under Skokkr

  • Detachment Combat: While he mainly uses magic, he can still detach body parts.
  • The Dragon: To Hades after his last Dragon left him
  • Even Evil Has Standards: During Rhapsodies of Vana'diel. When he finds out that The Cloud of Darkness, the same entity the destroyed his home world, is behind the appearance of The Ambassador, he immediately aligns with The Adventurer
  • Horned Humanoid: What with the goats head.
  • It Amused Me: His main motivation for doing everything he does. He even decides to stop opposing the party because he found them trying to stop Hades too interesting
  • Karma Houdini: He survives both the events of Seekers of Adoulin and Rhapsodies of Vana'diel

  • Wild Card: Despite claiming that he will stay out of the final conflict between Hades and the main party, no one is sure about whether he will stay true to his word in the end. He does.

    Ashrakk and Dhokmak.
On the left: Dhokmak. On the Right: Ashrakk
The Duskbrood Xol and the Brash Xol respectively. They return from the darkness to aid their masters plan in corrupting the wilderness and usher a new dark world.
  • Blow You Away / Shock and Awe: Ashrakk uses both wind and thunder attacks.
  • Dumb Muscle: Dhokmak who can barely speak coherently. It's his share power that aids in Hades' goal.
  • Enemy to All Living Things: Their goal is to spread their poisons and corruption to disrupt and ultimately destroy the ecosystem they have been reborn into.
  • Flat Character: Compared to The Spitewardens, they are pretty flat and are killed off pretty quickly after being introduced.
  • The Heavy: Both of them serve as this to Hades- They are meant to spread their poisons into the ecosystem before Hades' makes his final move.
  • Horned Humanoid: Ashrakk's horns are almost as big as his body.
  • Poisonous Person: Dhokmak's specialty is poison.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Well, amphibian in Dhokmak's case.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Ashrakk claims this is the case just before he dies.
  • The Unintelligible: Dhokmak. You can pick up a word here and there, but on the whole he is incredibly difficult to understand.
  • Walking Wasteland: Both of them are this. Sajj'aka notes that they are obviously not at full strength because the forest is still standing.



    Skokkr Undrborn

A dvergar demon who recruits The Adventurer for his experiments into souls and spirits. He is revealed to have been Hades' mentor over a millennium ago.

He guides the player through the Vagary battle content.

  • Above Good and Evil: He views his research as this.
  • Blue and Orange Morality. The only thing he cares about is his research. He doesn't care if his research is used for good or evil, and is even impressed when he learns how Hades used his research.
  • Cool Chair: Like all dverger, he is never seen without it.
  • Intrigued by Humanity: He finds The Adventurer very interesting
  • Mad Scientist: While a more tame than most versions of this trope, his unusual subject matter coupled with his lack of morality paints him a this.
  • Non-Action Guy: He mentions that he is pretty weak compared to other dvergar, which is in part why he choose the life of study.
  • A Pupil of Mine, Until He Turned to Evil: It turns out that Hades was this. Not that Skokkr cares
  • Slouch of Villainy:Like his student. For some definition of evil at the very least.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite only appearing in a few optional scenes after the end of Seekers of Adoulin he is important to the story as the one that started Hades down his path of darkness.
  • Time Abyss: He claims his lifespan is measured in centuries, not years. Although his exact age is not known, we know that his apprentice attacked Adoulin 1,000 years ago. That was after centuries of Hades exploring other universes after leaving Skokkr's side. He is easily the oldest character in Seekers of Adoulin.
  • Token Good Teammate: By some definition of good anyway. He's the only dvergar in the game whose doesn't attack you

    The Naakuals 
Six powerful monsters found in The Ulbuka Wilderness. They are among the most fierced and feared creatures in the wilderness. They can be fought in Wildskeeper Reive's, but players are expected to bring lots of back up to the fight. In truth, they are loyal to King August, who freed them from Hades control. They now guard the entrance way to Hades' lair and the darkness that lies within.

A seventh Naakual is said to exist, but nothing is known about it. For more about it, see Sacred City Of Adoulin Final Fantasy XI Sacred City Of Adoulin - Teodor

  • Threatening Shark: Tchakka.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Yumcx is considered a big step up in difficulty from the first three Naakuals, to the extent that Wildskeeper Reive parties will generally just repeat the first three and avoid the ones that come after him.
  • When Trees Attack: Yumcx, a floating tree.


How well does it match the trope?
