"I dare not abandon Ul'dah to the Monetarists and their cronies."
The twenty-five year old Vice Marshal of the Immortal Flames, Pipin Tarupin was born to a drunkard of a father who traded him to some man of the Coliseum for a refill of his tankard. There, the boy met the Bull of Ala Mhigo, who granted him his freedom. Yet, the Dunesfolk youth realized he would likely be sold again should he return home, and begged Raubahn to train him as a gladiator. Touched by the boy's desire to seize his own future, the Ala Mhigan found a lawful means to adopt Pipin as his own. Growing under Raubahn's care, Pipin went on to find great success as a mercenary, and was involved with the establishment of the Immortal Flames. Eventually, he came to serve in the Bloodsworn directly beneath his adopted father.
Though deadly serious in the line of duty, Pipin does enjoy a healthy nip of good Ul'dahn spirits each evening—the stronger, the better.
