"During the course of my official tenure as a Sultansworn, I traveled the length and breadth of Eorzea. Those experiences molded me into the man I am today."
A proud man of the Dunesfolk, Papashan once numbered among the Sultansworn, even acting as the right hand of Solkzagyl, the former captain. When Nanamo came to the throne, he served as her personal guard. To the young sultana who had no living family left, he became a second father.
Upon his retirement from active service, Papashan became stationmaster at the Ul'dah Dispatch Yard operated by Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern, a prestigious position as befits a man who has seen sixty-four winters. However, behind his persona of a good-natured elderly man, he continues to secretly offer what aid he can to the Sultansworn. He also delights in taking strolls with Nanamo when she leaves the palace in the guide of "Lady Lilira," himself masquerading as a steward.
