The elderly and devoted Yodel decides, based upon the results of his investigation into the Dark Dragon, perceived that the “Dragon Threat” was very real and was able to help put an end to it. Not only was he devoted to his faith, but possessed both great insight and influence. As acknowledgement of his meritorious deeds, he ascended to Archbishop of the Elimine Church after the war.
Long ago Yodel had journeyed with the mountain sage Nimue to various places. His actions in his younger days are something one may want to try and see sometime.

プロフィール
性別・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・男
推定年齢・・・・・・・・・・・・70代
称号・・・・・・・・・・・伝説の大司教
出身・・・・・・・・・・エトルリア地方
身分・・・・・・・・・エリミーヌ教司祭

老齢のヨーデルが自ら魔竜の調査に乗りだしたことからは、教義に忠実であること以上に、「竜の脅威」を、具体的な危険と捉えていたことが推測できる。信仰に忠実なだけでなく、洞察力と行動力を兼ね備えたヨーデルは、戦後、その功績を評価されてエリミーヌ教の大司教に登りつめる。
かつて山の賢者ニイメと各地を渡りあるいたというヨーデル。若いころの活躍ぶりも、いつか見てみたいものである。
