  • Serendipity appears to be extremely tired. Perhaps you should inquire as to why.
  • A sleep-deprived Serendipity has tasked you with a very important commission, once again for the merchant Roroton. As an attendee to the sultana's nameday celebration, he wishes to present a gift to Her Grace. If his gift meets with her favor, he will rise to even greater prominence in Ul'dahn society. You must craft a high-quality black pearl ring, and then you must meld to it a grade three piety materia. When finished, present the ring to Serendipity.
  • After Serendipity verifies that you have completed the ring, she summons Roroton to the guild. However, your meeting takes a dramatic turn when Robert bursts in and accuses the merchant of being the Jade Fox. He takes Roroton into custody and departs the guild, though not before seizing your black pearl ring as evidence. Speak with Serendipity and see what she thinks of this unexpected development.
  • Serendipity suddenly realizes that Gigi is nowhere to be found, and begs you to help her find him. She recalls that he was muttering something about Pearl Lane, and suggests that you begin the search for the missing mammet there.
  • You and Serendipity find Gigi in Pearl Lane, along with Robert and Roroton. Gigi accuses the Sultansworn of being an impostor, a claim which Robert does not deny. His identity revealed, the Jade Fox attempts to hold Roroton hostage, but the merchant and mammet manage to subdue the thief. Observing that Gigi has been severely damaged in the struggle, you heroically attempt to repair him by jamming your ring inside him, despite having absolutely no knowledge of mammet construction and no reason to believe it would make a difference. Inexplicably, your efforts appear to meet with some success, as the mammet reactivates and subsequently states how much it dislikes your most recent creation. Return to the guild and discuss all that has transpired with Serendipity.
  • Serendipity explains that your reckless attempt to repair Gigi with your black pearl ring invoked such overwhelming disgust that the mammet, through sheer strength of will, overcame its injuries. She also reveals that Gigi's original name is Mnejing, and that as the first mammet ever built, he served as the basis for all future designs. However, she decides not to divulge this information to the mammet, as it would only serve to inflate his ego even more. Although she appreciates your good intentions, Serendipity politely requests that you not tamper with a mammet's internal mechanisms again─at least until you have gained a cursory knowledge of their workings.
※The next goldsmith quest will be available from Serendipity once you have completed the main scenario quest “Before the Dawn.”

<yawn> Oh, Forename...
good morning
...

Sorry, sorry, it's been a long...wait, what day is it? It's been so busy on account of the sultana's nameday celebration that I haven't had time to get a good night's sleep...or any sleep, for that matter.


Don't worry about me, though! I'm fine, see? Perfectly awake! Perfectly fine!


But seeing you here reminds me that I had a very important commission for you. Roroton wants you to craft a ring─a ring he intends to present to the sultana herself!


This is the sort of opportunity that comes but once in a lifetime. Your jewelry might be worn by Her Royal Majesty Nanamo Ul Namo!


You see, at the celebration, all of the sultana's gifts will be presented to her at once in a grand ceremony. Any guest whose gift receives special recognition is assured of great fame and fortune!


Roroton was adamant that you be the one to craft his gift. He said he could only accept the work of Ul'dah's premier goldsmith!


After discussing the matter at length, he decided on a flawless black pearl ring as his present. Additionally, he would like it to be melded with materia as a finishing touch.


I suggest you use a piety materia. That would give the sultana incentive to select it─though we don't want to give the impression she needs it, so perhaps you should use an average grade, say...three. Given the importance of this commission, Roroton has agreed to pick it up in person, so I will contact him when you have prepared the ring.
Quest Accepted
Is the ring ready yet? Remember that it must also be melded with grade three piety materia. Roroton will come as soon as I contact him, and not a moment sooner. He doesn't want to risk upsetting Gigi...
By the Twelve, this is fabulous! I'll let Roroton know at once!

It's more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! The color, the shape, the luster... This is a ring fit for royalty!


I knew I was right to trust in you, Forename. This ring will surely meet with Her Grace's approval!
Stop right there, Roroton! This mummer's farce ends now!
Huh? Wh-What is the meaning of this?
Think you're clever, do you? I've seen through your lies, and I know who you really are─the Jade Fox!
The Jade Fox!? Roroton, is this true? Have you been deceiving us all this time?
I'm afraid so, my dear. But it's over now, and not a moment too soon. This charlatan was plotting to rob the guests at the nameday celebration─and maybe even the sultana herself!

Th-That's ridiculous! I don't have to listen to these wild accusations!


Forename, I'm afraid I must ask you to give me that ring, as it is evidence of his crimes. It will be returned to you once his trial is complete.

You don't believe him, do you, Forename!? I'm innocent, I tell you! Innocent!


We'll see how long you can maintain this facade once I've put you in a cell! I'm taking you to Captain Jenlyns!

NE※GIGIGI★※...

SeCrEtS aNd LiEs, SeCrEtS aNd LiEs! He TaKeS hIm To DeAtH aNd SoRrOw, To PeArL lAnE!

I still can't believe that Roroton was the Jade Fox! Can you, Gigi?


Gigi? Gigi! Where are you!?


Egads, Forename! I think he might have run off on his own!


I heard him muttering something about Pearl Lane. We should try searching for him there first!

Player7 Icon.png Cutscene end.

I still can't believe what has happened... First, I thought Roroton was the Jade Fox, then it turned out it was Robert...


Gigi must have sensed something strange about him before. I can't help but think back on all those times he ranted about secrets and lies.


I assumed he was speaking of Roroton, but now I realize he meant Robert. Oh, if only I had listened more closely to his words.


That man made a fool out of me, what with his dashing good looks, his piercing gaze, his broad shoulders...


But we got him, Forename! He'll never again terrorize the good people of Ul'dah!


I'm sure you're worried about Gigi. Allow me to put your fears to rest: in spite of your reckless attempt to repair him, there was no permanent damage.


Indeed, when you began fumbling around with his components and attempted to shove that ring inside him, I was absolutely terrified! Thankfully, through sheer strength of will, Gigi overcame his injuries. And it's all thanks to your ring.


In Gigi's eyes, your ring was so poorly wrought that it filled him with an overwhelming disgust. You reminded him of his purpose by creating focus for his grand disdain, and in so doing you helped him to regain his senses! Isn't that wonderful, Forename?


Ah, but that's not all I wanted to tell you. When I was examining Gigi earlier, I discovered something extraordinary!


You see, he's by far the oldest mammet we have here, having been constructed by one of our former guildmasters over a century ago. In fact, I'm the nineteenth guildmaster he has assisted, according to records.


But what our records didn't contain was his original name, which was so faintly inscribed upon his core that it went unnoticed until now. Gigi is Mnejing, Forename─the first mammet ever built, and the mammet whose design on which all others are based!


Of course, I have no intention of telling him. The knowledge would make him insufferably arrogant.


Anyway, Forename, please accept my sincerest thanks. And though Gigi would be loath to admit it, I'm sure deep down he's grateful to you as well. Oh, in the future, please don't attempt to repair a mammet until you have at least learned the basics of their construction!
