This page covers the NPCs featured in the various Disciple of the Land questlines. For the Disciple of the Land classes themselves, see The Warrior of Light.
As the story has advanced beyond the point of hiding plot twists, there are unmarked spoilers below, you have been warned.
Guildmaster of the Miners' Guild.
- Boobs of Steel: She's the guildmaster of one of the most physically taxing professions, with the bust to show for it.
- Deceptive Disciple: Deep Canyon believes her to be this, slandering him so that she would inherit the guild instead of him. However, this is far from the truth, quite the opposite in fact.
- Self-Made Woman: Not many Ala Mhigan refugees get to the kind of position she has in Ul'dah.
- Sweet Tooth: Says herself she's "fond of the odd sweet or three".
- Becoming the Boast: A variant, his father has been tampering with records to inflate his accomplishments, so rather than let such lies stand he does everything he can to achieve the feats his father made up on his behalf. This does not work out well.
- Break the Haughty: After losing to the player character three times as well as his father's tampering the record books to inflate his accomplishments to a point he can't keep up with. Even referring himself as Brass - Pretty to behold, but worth little.
- Everyone Has Standards: He cannot condone his father tampering with the records to raise his standing to the point where he frantically tries to legitimize them. In fact, he is the one who turns him in.
- Generation Xerox: Seems to resent the Player Character as much as his father resents Aldalberta. He comes around.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Starts as antagonistic towards the player, but not even he can allow his father tampering with the guild records.
- The Rival: At first, but then sees the player as a...
- Laser-Guided Karma: His tampering of the guild records, out of misguided revenge towards Adalberta, is what nearly costs him his job.
- Poor Communication Kills: Believed that Adalberta spoke to the previous Guildmaster to discredit him when in actuality she was speaking against herself inheriting the guild.
- Revenge by Proxy: Deep Canyon wants Wide Gulley to inherit the guild after ruining Adalberta's reputation. Then the player's character comes along and starts out-performing him...
- The Resenter: Towards Adalberta, who he believes conspired against him to inherit the guild for herself.
- A Father to His Men: He wants to help raise the standing for his group and give them all a better life, but he's careful to always keep everyone's safety in mind, even if they have to trek deep into hostile territory.
- Heroic BSoD: In the Level 60 quest, "The Hole Truth," he has one when Hatchling runs off against monsters, feeling like it's his dead brother all over again.
- Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: The Warrior of Light can give him one of these during his Heroic BSoD, pulling him back together.
- The Nicknamer: Assigns one to everyone under his command. Including you. Since you're the actual mining specialist of the group, he decides Professor is a suitable title.
- Rugged Scar: Several are visible on his face, likely the result of many years of mercenary work.
- Dark Secret: He was originally a member of the Illuminati, but left once their methods became fanatical and xenophobic.
- Only Sane Man: Often has to provide a middle ground solution when his colleagues disagree on how the Gobroller should be built. When one says the controls should be built for the average Eorzean, and the other believes they should be sized for Goblins, Stickqix offers up the suggestion to make the controls adjustable.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: He's learned to speak the common tongue fluently, though he lapses back into Goblin Buffy Speak when he gets agitated.
- Poor Communication Kills: Inverted. Him leaving without informing his colleagues of where he's going inspires them to finally stop infighting and finish the Gobroller. The reason the message didn't get through is cause the goblin he gave the message to was Brayflox Alltalks.
The master of the Botanist's guild.
- Actual Pacifist: Fufucha despises warfare. This causes her no end of turmoil as so many orders from her guild are supplies to be used in Gridania's continuous conflict with the Ixal.
- The Cameo: She makes an appearance in the Level 50 Leatherworker quest along with Beatin as a judge in the competition.
- Face Palm: She does this at Mujih's introduction in "Call from the Clouds."
- Green Thumb: Besides being the guildmaster of the Botanist's Guild, "Seeds of Hope" has her friend Yannie tell that she went around planting trees after the Calamity.
- 10-Minute Retirement: The Level 50 Botanist Quest, "Seeds of Hope," has her do this because she can't stand all the constant violence in the Gridanians' war against the Ixals and now with the Empire joining in the fray that she quits being the guildmaster. It takes the Warrior of Light bringing a builder in Coerthas some Spruce Logs to rebuild homes to show her efforts are not in vain.
A reporter for "The Raven," a newspaper in Gridania.
- Identical Twin: She has an identical sister, Lina, who's assigned to Kugane.
- Intrepid Reporter: She follows the Warrior of Light in their 50-60 Botanist chain.
- Nice Hat: She has one with a blue feather on it.
- Noodle Incident: How she managed to get into Ishgard, which is notoriously closed off to foreigners. All she says to the Warrior of Light about it is "if anyone asks, I'm your retainer."
The Botanist representative for Heavensward and a member of House Haillenarte who's trying to make Camp Cloudtop self-reliant.
The leader of the Fisherman's guild.
- Added Alliterative Appeal: Truly, you'd become weary watching for a window where one of his worldly weavings of wordplay wasn't like this.
- Brilliant, but Lazy: He undoubtedly has the talent required of a Guildmaster, but is far too busy spending his days fishing and womanizing to bother with actually running the guild.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The Level 50 Fishing quest shows that his telling Chuchuroon that the Mazlya marlin is quite the "monster" which ended up to getting a ban put on fishing until the Warrior of Light catches it.
- Obsessed with Food: The only thing he knows more about than fish is all the delicious ways that they can be prepared for dinner.
- Big "WHAT?!": He lets one of these out in the Level 60 quest when Reyna tells him her brother plans to fill in the family fishing holes to spite him."Whaaaaaat!? That lowlife can order my friends to put poisoned arrows in my heart all he likes, but I'll never forgive him if he dares to damage my family's fishing holes!"
- Nice Hat: He has a hat with lures on it.
- Old Friend: He's friends with Wawalago.
- Really Royalty Reveal: The Level 58 Fisher quest reveals he's the missing eldest son of the Rougecarpe House.
- Who's Laughing Now?: He says this to Reyna in the Level 53 Fisher quest when the Warrior Light catches 3 HQ icepicks over her two.
- Big "WHAT?!": She lets one out in the Level 53 Fisher quest when the Warrior of Light beats her record of catching two HQ icepicks by catching three.
- Cool Shades: She wears a pair of shades over her face.
- The Rival: She becomes this to Ansaulme and the Warrior of Light in the Fisher storyline.
- Professional Killer: She moonlights as one of these, and uses the funds gained to fuel her fishing hobby. Ansaulme's brother tries to order a hit on him, but she refuses.
A Sahagin that Wawalago accidentally caught on a fishing trip.
- Commonality Connection: He and Wawalago started off antagonistic until they hit it off about fishing.
The Crystalline Mean (Facets of Gathering & Fishing)
- Ambiguous Disorder: Shes a bit strange, and occasionally lapses into fits of ecstatic laughter for no apparent reason. Shes also less interested in doing her job than in the samiel, to the point that the Warrior of Darkness has to stop her from running off to Amh Araeng to chase rumours that the creature was seen there.
- The Cuckoolander Was Right: Her colleagues all dismissed her obsession with the samiel as there was no evidence at the time to support its existence, only for her and the WoL to find them Kholusiathem being a species of massive sauropods capable of turning themselves invisible, hence why no one had seen them before.
