—  Pablo
Your great-great-whatever granddaughter is going to hate you.

Pablo was responsible for the Rune Cannon control room on board the Headquarters Ship and was the ship's resident expert on the weapons. He had poured his heart and soul into the study of Rune Cannons and especially looked up to Warlock, the original creator of the weapons.

He was usually quite blunt and unfriendly to people, but his personality would completely shift when the conversation would turn to Rune Cannons.

Once the Headquarters Ship left the Kingdom of Obel, Pablo was in charge of maintaining the Rune Cannons installed on the ship. Once Warlock also joined the crew of the ship, he would attempt to study under him and learn as much as he could, despite Warlock's extreme reluctance to divulge any information on the weapons he regretted creating.

Following the Island Liberation War, with the sudden death of Warlock, Pablo returned to studying Rune Cannons alone, even as they began to vanish from the world.



Keen You have done well by coming here. In this room, you may confess what is in your heart and accept proper judgement.
Pablo Y-Yes...P-Please do not take too much time. I cannot leave my post for long.
Keen Would you secretly inform me about anyone onboard this ship who you think is causing problems?
Pablo What? Hmmmmm...Let me think...Master Warlock is...He will not answer my questions, no matter how much I ask...Can't something be done about this? *sigh*
Keen Then, would you tell me what you think of the Hero?
Pablo To be honest...That Rune is a little frightening. If possible I do not want to be too close to him.....Well, I'm sure he himself is a good person...
Keen Finally, quietly confess the things you wish to atone for, or all the things that you are thankful for.
Pablo Having the opportunity to work with Master Warlock is a supreme joy. I cannot be grateful enough. Now, if I could just ask Master Warlock about other things, that would just be the best...
Pablo Ooh!! Ah! This is...slightly encouraging!
Pablo ...!! Gah!! Th-This is horrid...!!
