"She sings! She dances! She can help you pay your taxes!"

Tataru was born into a wealthy merchant family, yet her time in luxury's lap was not long, for her father lost the family's wealth after a series of poor investments when Tataru was but a child, forcing her into a life of impoverishment. Crooked moneylenders hounding her father at every step, it was during this tumultuous youth that she learned well the value of coin.

To help support her kin, Tataru took an apprenticeship at a jeweler's that paid but a pittance. She had but seen twelve namedays. It was during this apprenticeship that she met Minfilia, who had come to the shop to sell rough gemstones. Apparently, Tataru left an impression, for when Minfilia founded the Path of the Twelve, she returned to ask the Dunesfolk woman to join her as coincounter. Believing that through this position she might help prevent others from meeting the same fate as her family, Tataru willingly consented. She thus came to serve as the keeper of the Scions' coin. Now twenty-one, Tataru is also a budding songstress, and is known to sing to herself as she works her sums.

Additional Dialogue
The Waking Sands (before the player joins the Scions)
Please be advised that this is private property. Unless you have pertinent business here, I must ask you to leave.
Ul'dah Airship Landing
Deep in the desert of my heart, a lonely flower blooms, Yearning for the heavens above to quench my thirst for you. Trololololo~lololo~ Oh, [player name]! I hope my singing doesn't bother you. I'm rather fond of this little ditty—it reminds me of home.
The Black Wolf's Ultimatum (The Waking Sands)
I understand you gave our fallen brothers and sisters a proper burial. I'm sure they appreciated it. When the Empire is beaten and all of this is over, let us visit them at the church.
Tataru is a unique Triple Triad player. You may only challenge her to play during a few small windows of opportunity (depending on your Main Scenario Quest progress.) You may first challenge her after completing Before the Dawn (the conclusion to the A Realm Reborn expansion) and she is located in the Intercessory, a special room inside Camp Dragonhead, and is only able to be challenged between the hours of 5:00 pm and 5:30am (Eorzean Time). After you start the quest Coming to Ishgard, you can no longer challenge her at the Intercessory. You must complete all of the 3.0 storyline, which ends in the quest Heavensward, before you may challenge her again. Once you complete the 3.0 Main Scenario questline, you may challenge her at The Forgotten Knight. Her deck changes and she is only able to be challenged between the hours of 7:00pm and 7:00am (Eorzean Time). Once you start the 3.1 Main Scenario via the An Uncertain Future quest, you lose the ability to challenge her at Triple Triad forever.
