People: Leander Kubel
The younger brother of Elleon Kubel and a high-ranking magister and scholar. He seems to specialize in researching demons and other dark energies, as another NPC calls him a “walking encyclopedia” of demonic knowledge.
When his brother goes missing on the Island of Dawn and is written off as dead, Leander organizes an expedition to return to the island and discover the truth of what happened there. He recruits both Federation veterans and an army of rookie soldiers to aid him – including the player’s character, thus officially beginning the player’s journey into the world of TERA.
Leander is shown to be somewhat abrupt and sarcastic at times; his Elin comrade Eria writes this off as due to the stress of his brother’s disappearance.
After the player helps him solve the mystery of the first expedition’s disappearance and departs the Island of Dawn, Leander is not seen again. However, he is mentioned during the Dark Cathedral questline in Tulufan. A quest-giving NPC says that “Elleon and Leander” were the only two to make it far into the cathedral before their disappearance.
Strangely, however, when the player catches up with Elleon and Jelena inside of Cultist’s Refuge, Leander is nowhere to be found, and no mention is made of his whereabouts.*
*Needs confirmation. My memory is shaky, will confirm this when I run through these quests again. I’m just putting this here as-is for now so I don’t forget!
