Prince Mehtu the Wise
|Prince Mehtu the Wise|
Concept art by Kekai Kotaki.
location in Holdings of Chokhin
The prince of the Great Library at Chokhin has attained his position by applying his keen mind to careful research. Extremely logical, Mehtu is meticulous with details, but he often misses the "human element" when making his plans. Some see him as cold and calculating, but he isn't without humanity. Mehtu is wise enough to understand happiness, for example, and his love for his daughter means more to him than anything else in the world. He's a proud father, although sometimes he doesn't fully understand his emotional and irrational child. Unfortunately, he is also learning to understand fear. The deeper he delves into the mysteries of Vabbi, the more disturbing his revelations become. Perhaps the answers to his dilemmas lie in a comforting, unemotional routine of meticulous research.
Quests involved in:
In the Tihark Orchard mission:

- (For male characters) "My niece Mina tells me that, thanks to you, she has learned to dance. She is such a sweet young girl...reminds me of my beloved daughter at that age. You have put a smile on her face and brightened Mina's day. I grant you my audience in return for your kindness."
- "I am ready."
In the Halls of Chokhin:
- "A rumor is floating around that you defeated that raving rummy Lumo in a mime duel. Remarkable! I should like to sit and spear with you for a time. Anyone who can defeat Lumo is worthy of my attention."
- "Tell me about your library, Prince Mehtu. I hear it's magnificent."
- "My library is a wonder of the world, young one. Ancient scrolls, text from Tyria, ancient Orr, Istan and Kourna, and all the strange places throughout the world can be found within its walls. I even have stone tablets that were found on an island far off the coast... an island that mysteriously disappeared thereafter. Ha! I see I have your attention. Yes, my library is magnificent. I encourage you to come and see for yourself."
