Description

Appearance

Yudala Fon is an agender, middle-aged half-elf who wears elaborate Cobalt Soul robes, and has short red hair.[2]

The robes they wear are white and gold, with a blue trim. As the High Curator, they wear a necklace of reliquaries draped across their collarbone, each a glass case containing a rolled-up parchment of scripture.[3]

Personality

Yudala is a wise individual who is dedicated to taking care of the Rexxentrum Archive, and is skilled at parrying attempts from both the Crown and the Cerberus Assembly to control the Cobalt Soul.[1] In their interactions with Beau, they proved to be a fair and honest authority figure, as they personally apologised for Zeenoth’s abuse of power in kidnapping Beau and ensured that Zeenoth faced justice for his actions.[4]

Biography

Background

"Punishment and Politics" (2x87)

Yudala was present when the Mighty Nein were brought before King Bertrand Dwendal after the battle in the Chantry of the Dawn. They assured the king that according to the Cobalt Soul’s information, the Kryn Dynasty did not appear to be in league with the Angel of Irons Cult.

"Frigid Propositions" (2x109) and "Dinner with the Devil" (2x110)

Beauregard met with Yudala in the Rexxentrum Archive, asking them if the Cobalt Soul could research the Eyes of Nine. Yudala promised to set their best scholars to work on the problem. However, when Beau returned to the Archive, Yudala informed her that the Cobalt Soul had found no information on the Eyes of Nein at all.

"The Neverending Day" (2x125)

While the Mighty Nein were visiting the Rexxentrum Archive, Yudala had a private meeting with Beau where they discussed the current investigation of the Cerberus Assembly being put on hold due to the Augen Trust deciding to investigate into the Assembly's dealings with the Kryn Dynasty as well. Yudala then apologized to Beau, explaining that she should have never been forced into joining the Cobalt Soul, and that Archivist Zeenoth was under arrest at the Zadash Archive for accepting a bribe to kidnap her.

"Fond Farewells" (2x141)

Initially aghast when Beau presented them with a basket containing a captured Trent Ikithon, Yudala quickly became focused and intense as Beau and Caleb explained Ikithon's corruption and crimes. They vowed to Trent that he would be tried and imprisoned for his deeds. In the following days, Yudala organised a clandestine group of investigators to undermine and dismantle the Cerberus Assembly.
