"The true wealth of Ul'dah lies in the health, happiness, and hopes of her citizens."

A Dunesfolk maid of royal blood, Nanamo Ul Namo came to power at the tender age of five when her father passed. Naturally, none so young could fathom the intricacies of government, and the sultana was relegated to the role of royal puppet. Despite having ruled for more than a decade and a half, to this day, many dare to accuse her of being little more than a mammet mouthing the Syndicate's words.

She is not, however, without her allies. At the age of nine, she surprised the city-state by pardoning Raubahn Aldynn on a whim. As his Coliseum winnings were conferred upon him, the Bull of Ala Mhigo swore an undying oath to serve as the sultana's sword. When he joined the Syndicate, Raubahn made good on this promise, and remains entirely loyal to Nanamo.

Though she is the picture of propriety when sitting the throne, Nanamo is still a maiden of twenty-one years, and has a more playful side. She is known to leave the palace incognito, and take tea and crumpets at the Quicksand.

Full Biography Map79 Icon.png
As a child ruler wielding little power, Nanamo made few appearances prior to the Calamity, not even having a presence at Raubahn's speech commemorating the reformation of the Immortal Flames.[1] Indeed, one of the few public appearances she made was at the very Coliseum match in which Raubahn won his seat on the Syndicate in 1570, where, overcome with excitement, Nanamo rushed into the ring to personally declare his ascendancy and accept his oath of service to her interests.[2]

When Raubahn led the Flames on their march to the Battle of Carteneau, Nanamo was overcome with loneliness and felt that she could not stand on her own, despite being attended by his adopted son, Pipin.[3] As the battle raged onward with the purpose of protecting the Archon Louisoix while he attempted to summon the Twelve and return the lesser moon to the heavens, Thancred convinced Nanamo to make an appearance at Arrzaneth Ossuary to pray so that she might inspire the people to have hope, as well.

In the midst of her Vigil, Dalamud shattered and Bahamut was freed; debris raining down upon the city inspired panic and chaos. Seeing the Thaumaturge guildmaster Mumuepo demanding that the looters be burned alive before they could make off with any relics, Nanamo was overcome with rage, finding the will to act. Though she found only seven allies (Pipin, the Sultansworn Papashan, and five members of the guild), she was able to calm the masses with a passionate plea. This event finally convinced Nanamo that she did have some power to do good for Ul'dah, starting with seeing Mumuepo stripped of power and replaced as master of Arrzaneth Ossuary.

When the Sultana's crown is stolen from a celebration, Nanamo disguises herself as a lower noblewoman named Lilira and flees her guard to pray beneath the Sultantree for forgiveness for her failure.[4] She comes under attack by Vodoriga and is saved by Thancred and the Warrior of Light before bring returned to the city under Sultansworn guard, apologetic for worrying them. The recovery of the crown from the Alacran[5] earns the Warrior of Light the attention of Nanamo and Raubahn, who name them envoy to Ul'dah and Limsa Lominsa to organize a remembrance ceremony for the Battle of Carteneau.[6]

When the XIVth Imperial Legion under Gaius van Baelsar strikes out from the castrums hastily erected in the chaos following the Calamity, they attempt to dismantle the Scions of the Seventh Dawn[7] and use the threat of the Ultima Weapon to force an ultimatum on the leaders of the city-states: stand down and accept Garlean rule while the primals are destroyed - or resist and share in their fate.[8] The Alliance leaders contemplate surrender, but Nanamo questions whether it could truly be the lesser evil if the Empire so plainly cares not for its peoples' welfare. Much to the sultana's relief, Alphinaud arrives with the reunited Scion remnants and inspires them to fight back.

When Yugiri arrives with the refugees from Doma, the first place the group seeks asylum is in the lands of the wealthy Ul'dah.[9] Nanamo expresses a desire to take in the refugees, but finds support only from Teledji Adeledji, who would see them given the work they seek by way of the ongoing repair of damage suffered in the Calamity. Lolorito outmaneuvers him, reminding the Syndicate that the city is already overburdened by refugees taken in from the fall of Ala Mhigo twenty years prior, as well as the Calamity itself. With four of six syndicate seats against the sultana, the Domans are turned away.

The rejection of the Domans leads to protests from the refugees in Ul'dah, reminded of the elites' policies of discrimination.[10] In the midst of the protest, a unit of Brass Blades losses arrows on the heated, but peaceful, protestors, sparking outright riots. Interrogation of the Blades' commanding officer revealed that the events were orchestrated by Prince Teledji Adeledji, and Raubahn is able to piece together parts of his larger plan.[11] By speaking out in favor of the Domans (confident that they would be turned away regardless) and proposing the Carteneau Reclamation Bill under the pretense of building permanent settlements for the refugees, Telejdi means to cultivate unrest and use the Bill as its obvious solution. In doing so, he would claim the violently contested Allagan ruins at Carteneau Flats and take possession of a partially excavated artifact therein—Omega. Nanamo expresses tearful frustration at being unable to do anything to prove the ruse, let alone stop it, but when Alphinaud comes to her requesting her blessing in the creation of a fourth Grand Company whose loyalty to Eorzea transcended that to a city-state, she gives an optimistic blessing.[12]

Teledji gains great favor with the refugees of Ul'dah as a result of the Reclamation Bill, but in doing so creates a rift in the Monetarists of the Syndicate. Knowing that simply dissolving the Syndicate would lead the wealthy merchant class into revolt and exacerbate the current unrest, Nanamo summons Merlwyb and Kan-E-Senna to a private meeting and makers her intentions known to them. In order for Ul'dah's people as a whole to prosper, no longer governed by the whims of the few, the Nanamo states her intent to dissolve the monarchy entirely and transform Ul'dah into a republic. Aware of the chaos that this announcement will bring, she asks that the other leaders stand by Raubahn and help him to keep order.[13]

Ishgard comes under heavy Dravanian attack and finally breaks fifteen years of isolationism to request aid. Seeing an opportunity to bring Ishgard back under the banners of the Alliance, Alphinaud calls a meeting of its leaders. To Alphinaud's surprise, not a single nation feels compelled to pledge more than a token force to Ishgard's defense, especially after the Holy See dedicated no aid against the Garlean Empire or Primal threat. Raubahn requests that perhaps he can commit more from the Immortal Flames if their absence in Ul'dah is filled by rallying more Brass Blades. Nanamo agrees, but appears disinterested, retreating back to her chambers to pray that Ul'dah will rise once the Line of Ul falls.[14]

The Free Companies and an elite unit of adventurers succeed in slaying Vishap, a great champion of the wyrm Nidhogg, and breaking the assault on the Steps of Faith. Ishgard, in return, pledges to rejoin the Alliance, and Ul'dah agrees to host a banquet at which the announcement can be officially made. Nanamo summons the Warrior of Light to her chambers and confesses that, at the same time, she will announce the dissolution of the monarchy.[15] As with Kan-E and Merlwyb, she implores them to lend Raubahn a steadying hand in the chaos to come. Relieved, Nanamo takes a sip from her wine, but is suddenly overcome by confusion and desperately fights for breath before falling motionless to the floor. Teledji Adeledji enters with a unit of Brass Blades, declaring that the Warrior of Light has assassinated the sultana. At the banquet, the Crystal Braves and Brass Blades turn on the Scions, and only Raubahn comes to their aid, slaying Teledji in a fit of rage after Teledji insults the fallen Nanamo. He next turns on Lolorito, but Ilberd severs his left arm and he is dragged away to the Marasaja Pit for confinement. The Scions stay behind and delay the Brass Blades, giving the Warrior of Light a chance to escape through a secret door in Nanamo's chambers. Unseen, Nanamo's lady-in-waiting approaches Lolorito and confirms that events are unfolding as he demanded, though it seems to relieve his frustration little.
