Grand Vizier Utumishi

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Utumishi may be a servile little weasel, but he moves in the highest echelons of Joko's government.

Chief Councilor Imann

Grand Vizier Utumishi is the head of Palawa Joko's civil governance. In Joko's absence, he has been running the Elonian empire from the Bone Palace.


Path of Fire[edit]

Utumishi served Palawa Joko loyally and was eventually appointed as the Grand Vizier of the lich king's empire. Some of the Awakened marshals, such as Wurmmarshal Osa Ekolo, never respected Utumishi or any of the other civil servants. Following Joko's lengthy absence and the subsequent Forged invasion in 1330 AE, Utumishi governed Elona from the Bone Palace to the best of his abilities while waiting for the lich king to return.

Later that year, news spread of what seemed to be a growing Sunspear uprising throughout the Desolation. While waiting for the military to quell the insurgency, Utumishi reassured a skeptical Osa Ekolo that Joko valued the contributions of her wurm corps as more than just rations for the Awakened army. By the time Archon Iberu arrived, Utumishi welcomed him with open arms, only to be confused by the Archon revealing that Joko had apparently returned and given the Archon orders to turn the military's full attention on the Forged. To Utumishi, the Archon not only sounded as precise as usual but demanded the vizier to organize the Awakened army to take the fight to Balthazar's Forged despite knowing that Utumishi held no sway over the military.

Before Utumishi could question the Archon's odd behavior further, Osa Ekolo pledged her corps to the Archon's cause while berating the vizier, and Utumishi quickly became subservient again out of fear that his actions would be misinterpreted as him refusing to carry out Joko's orders. The Archon and Osa Ekolo departed soon after to make preparations for the battle to come, leaving Utumishi to govern the kingdom.

Following Balthazar's demise at the Battle of Kodash Bazaar and the Awakened successfully pushing the remaining Forged back, Utumishi traveled to the Free City of Amnoon to not only meet the celebrated Hero of Kodash in person but also tried to discuss politics with Chief Councilor Imann, including Amnoon's alliance with Joko. He boasted about the Hero's success only being possible because of his aid.

The conversation was cut short by the arrival of the Hero who, much to the vizier's shock, was revealed to be the Pact Commander who admitted to having posed as Archon Iberu in order to gain access to the Awakened army. Mirroring their earlier conversation, the Commander promised that Utumishi's role in the "lending" of the Awakened army would reach Joko's ears. Horrified by what might happen if Joko learned the truth of his involvement with the outlander, Utumishi hastily departed from the celebration, narrowly avoiding a sudden Brandstorm conjured by the Elder Dragon Kralkatorrik which hit Amnoon shortly after.

Living World Season 4[edit]

After returning to the Bone Palace, Utumishi spread the lie that it had been Palawa Joko and not the Pact Commander who had defeated Balthazar at Kodash Bazaar, adding the feat to Joko's growing list of accomplishments. The tale spread as far south as the Domain of Istan.[1]

  • Grand Vizier Utumishi's name changes into Former Grand Vizier Utumishi during dialogue with him in A Shattered Nation, which persists in subsequent maps and instances.



  1. ^ Ambient dialogue at the Astralarium
    Historian: I've interviewed eyewitnesses. Joko wasn't even there when Balthazar fell...
    Historian: None of them saw what the vizier told us happened in Vabbi. No one!
    Scholar: My gods. What else has he been lying to us about?
