Occupation: GuildmasterThaumaturge
Title: The Piercing Eye
The Duke of Destruction
The Archmage of Annihilation

"Fire, lightning, blizzards, somnolence—the thaumaturge calls upon an expansive arsenal of offensive incantations to incapacitate and obliterate all manner of adversaries."

At twenty-three, Cocobuki is the eldest of six siblings of Dunesfolk ancestry—Cocobygo, Cocobani, Cocobezi, Cocoboha, and Cocobusi. All are masters of the Thaumaturges' Guild, save for the youngest. In accordance with the sultana's will, they did much to calm the populace when riots broke out in the streets during the Calamity. For these acts, they were named guildmasters and successors to the former leader—a disgraced man named Mumuepo, convicted of embezzlement.

Among his brothers, Cocobuki usually takes the leadership role and is often described as the wisest among them. [1] He first instructs thaumaturges on the nature of aether and arcane manipulation. [1][2] After their first test, he sends guild members to each of his younger siblings to learn the chapters of Thaumaturgy: The Yawning Abyss by the renowned thaumaturge Zozomaya. [3][4][5][6]

Additional Dialogue

Hm hm hm... So you wish to peer into the abyss of thaumaturgy?
Who are you?
I am the Piercing Eye, the Duke of Destruction, the Archmage of Annihilation... though most of my colleagues simply call me "Cocobuki." Of the five thaumaturge brothers that claim the title of "Guildmaster," I am the eldest. I offer guidance to those wishing to explore the stygian chasm of our discipline, and instruct aspirants in the art of arcane devastation. It is also my role o encourage the accumulation of thaumaturgical wisdom through both theoretical and practical application.
What is thaumaturgy?
Thaumaturgy is a form of arcane manipulation that allows the practitioner to unleash (his/her) will as deadly manifestations of primal power. The origin of our art can be found in the cumbersome magicks of our ancestors - subsequently focused and refined through their use in the funereal rites of the Order of Nald'thal. Though once used exclusively for the preparation of the dead, these incantations of destruction soon found new purpose on the battlefield. Hm hm hm... "Death," of course, is still very much the central focus of the discipline.

Cocobuki and his brothers were members of the Order of Nald'thal under Mumuepo and attained their position during the Calamity. When the former guildmaster responded with violence to rioters seeking aid, Cocobuki, his siblings, Pipin, and Papashan were the only ones to step up and aid Nanamo Ul Namo in keeping the peace. The five replaced Mumuepo after he was arrested for other crimes. [7]

He cares deeply for his younger brothers, particularly Cocobusi, whose innate inability to become a thaumaturge and join his siblings has long troubled him. [3] Despite the teachings of his craft, he is willing to sacrifice his own life to save the people he loves. [8][9]

His empathy does not extend solely to his siblings, however, as he shows care and concern for the well-being of his guild members overall. When Yayake is accused of aiding Mumuepo in a plot against the sultanate, he shows understanding for her emotions and takes an impartial stance. He ultimately believes her innocence at her word, and offers her a way to benefit the guild and atone for the mistakes she made. [10]

Cocobuki is knowledgeable on the War of the Sisters. He notes that Amalj'aa warriors aided Ul'dahn forces during the conflict with Sil'dih, and that this information was hidden from most historical texts. This leads him to ponder whether someone considered this information "inconvenient" and whether other facts may have been similarly buried. [11]

During operation Rhalgr's Beacon, Cocobuki and his brothers blasted open the gates of Ala Mhigo, allowing the Eorzean Alliance to liberate the city-state. [12]
