Memento

Collector, conservator, curator.


Memento is a cynic and realist, and he does not care to preserve anyone's ease of mind.

The red mage's disbelieving nature often earns him social rejection, which to him feels more of a reward than a consequence. It is understandably difficult for him to find anyone who will tolerate a person such as him.

Which is fine. Why waste time appeasing others when he could achieve something more worthwhile?

Memento acquires and restores antiquities from eras past, then displays them in his own personal gallery. He takes his one and only passion with a deathly seriousness, which is no exaggeration.

Interests

Memento is an avid art collector and conservator. He most frequently buys, but his dedication is so great that he will get his own hands dirty excavating artifacts from fallen kingdoms if he hears so much as a murmur.

He also seeks to destroy worldbreaking magical artifacts, and often goes out of his way to acquire them as he learns of their existences, much in the same way he feverishly covets art.

Past

Memento does not owe anyone his past, and that's what he'd tell you.

Dislikes & Fears

Memento has a very low tolerance for messing around, procrastinating, deception, essentially anything that would cut needlessly into his valuable time.

He utterly despises the abuse of magic.

Memento does a pretty good job of playing his cards close to his chest, but perhaps a safe assumption towards a fear of his would be related to the loss or destruction of his gallery.

Trivia

  • Memento's gallery is in Ul'dah. It boasts artwork and artifacts from many eras past.

  • He is a practiced red mage.

  • His opinion on the unauthorized use of white and black magic is very clear: don't.


Hooks

Pride and Joy

Memento's gallery is in Ul'dah. It boasts artwork and artifacts from many eras past. It's not open for the wider public's viewing, but know the right guy and you may be able to gain access.


Fine Art Frenzy

The world of fine art can be surprisingly cutthroat. It's possible you may have heard of or dealt with Memento before if you have an ear to the ground, or you've sold off or traded antiquities.


Too Dangerous to Exist

It's no secret that Memento seeks to destroy worldbreaking magical artifacts, and often goes out of his way to acquire them as he learns of their existences, much in the same way he feverishly covets art.

There are a fair few folks that are very displeased by this pursuit, as these magical items are just as unique and irreplaceable.


Dread Pirate Roberts

"Memento" and his gallery have been around for a very long time. When the current curator is too withered to care for his collection anymore, the mantle appears to be passed on to someone fresh and new who then takes on the identity. How the inheritor is chosen isn't known, but all sorts of people from all walks of life have been the gallery's caretaker in the past.
