Comrade Kupo (born Tehze'a Rhunteka), a male Miqo'te Keeper of the Moon, grew up in Ul'dah as the son of two goldsmiths, and apprenticed beneath them as a youth. The Miqo'te name of Tehze'a indicates that he is the first-born ('a) son of Tehze.His upbringing was a happy one, and his parents instilled in him a desire to be helpful. The merchant city often rankled him and left him feeling adrift, and he longed to explore the world; he especially hoped to visit his native Twelveswood and learn more about his people.After the Calamity, he joined the Twin Adders' Yellow Serpents division as an adventurer looking to make his way in the world. While in Gridania he grew fond of the Twelveswood and honed his conjuring skills. It was here that he grew especially empathetic towards the forest moogles and earned the moniker "Comrade Kupo" from his peers. He was happy to be called either name; he certainly did not see his affinity for the moogles as a bad thing.Ultimately, he rose to a Serpent Captaincy. Prior to the war with Garlemald, he was granted some leniency to travel abroad and be called back only as needed by the Adders.
Currently, Comrade spends much of his time at the Gold Saucer as a well-respected Chocobo Trainer and Triple Triad player.Thanks to his time in the Adders he had some proficiency riding chocobos and entered a few low-level races. He kept working, and kept coming back until eventually he was a staple of the circuit on his all-white chocobo with red barding. He has since largely retired from racing but still assists with chocobo training.Now, his primary focus is on Triple Triad. He has a startlingly large card collection and will happily take all comers.Comrade temporarily moved back to Ul'dah to be closer to the Saucer and also to help found The Baldesion Aetheronautic Institute, an educational and research-focused institution for airships and mobile weapons. It can be found in the Brimming Heart, by the waterfall.The war in Garlemald having passed, Comrade is now a visiting professor of Conjury at the St. Endalim Scholasticate in Ishgard, where he lives in an apartment.
In an alternate timeline, perhaps on another shard of this star, Comrade Kupo was Commodore Kupo, one of the very few Seekers of the Moon to have made their way to Limsa Lominsa.He grew up never having known his parents, who were lost at sea en route to Gridania. He was picked up by a passing pirate ship, the Coeurl Regina, and raised by the crew.
