Boss[edit | edit source]

Mugwort carries wood affinity, gaining aura when Gren is in alignment. He possesses the spells pepperthorn and briar patch, damaging all members of the party, as well as celestial swap, allowing him to manipulate the alignment of the planets to his advantage. As far as physical skills, Mugwort is capable of damaging a single party member with dancing baby. When he is at below half of his hit points, he will repeatedly use the physical skill jungle coaster, a powerful skill that damages all party members with the potential to lower defense.[1][2]

Bestiary entry[edit | edit source]

English[edit | edit source]

Although he's a deputy police chief in Bena Rikashi, he got this one-day job because he didn't mind massaging the chief's shoulders. It's not a glamorous job.

Japanese[edit | edit source]

ベナ・リカシィ宇宙警察署の署長代理。 署長のかたもみ3時間でようやく手にした 1日だけの署長代理。

The deputy police chief of the Bena Rikashi Space Police department. After rubbing the police chief's shoulders for three hours, he got this one-day position.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early life[edit | edit source]

At some point, Mugwort convinced Space Police chief Abalon Demar to give him his role for one day, but only after rubbing his shoulders for three hours.

Magical Starsign[edit | edit source]

On their journey to save Miss Madeleine, the party consisting of the protagonist, Lassi, and Mokka (and Pico if Gren was visited beforehand) arrived in Bena Rikashi. They consulted every officer in the Space Police HQ, until they arrived at the chief's office. Unfortunately, the receptionist explained their chief was unavailable, suggesting they talk to his stand-in Mugwort instead. Finding Mugwort in the restroom, they retrieved a roll of toilet paper and followed him into the chief's office afterwards, alerting him of the magician-abducting astro pirates. Mugwort exclaimed their predicament did not concern the Space Police, to which Lassi resolved to save Madeleine without the officers' assistance.

After Chai fled Bena Rikashi with secret police documents, the party chased him down to Honey Mint, where he was taken in by Brioche and his father Cresson. They analyzed the documents and found Madeleine's name on a list of magicians arrested by Biek Fowler, when suddenly, Mugwort flew in with Brie Pourri. As Pourri flew Chai back to the city, Mugwort engaged in battle with the party and lost. Believing that the battle constituted assaulting an officer, Mugwort threatened to have the party arrested, until Cresson offered his son's piggy bank of two million bira as compensation. Mugwort reluctantly accepted the offer and flew off, to Brioche's dismay.[1]

Nomenclature[edit | edit source]

His name comes from mugwort, a family of edible herbs.
