Hoban How to Draw final image.

Hoban (also known as Hoban the Navigator) is a Yellow Aisha, and the navigator of The Cyodrake's Gaze. His personality varies according to the different accounts of other crew members upon the merchant ship, but he is basically portrayed as being an informal, slightly bad tempered, generally cheerful character. The contents of his shoulder bag also varies slightly in each account.

The player meets Hoban after Anshu asks the player to visit the Aisha navigator. Hoban asks the player to set off a flare at a nearby tower so that he can measure out the height and position of some nearby buildings. After the player successfully completes this task, Hoban spots a bandit at Kentari's shop and asks the user to go investigate.

  • One of the plot prizes for The Cyodrake's Gaze was Hobans Hat, a weapon for the Battledome, showing that Hoban's hat was more than just for show (as the item description says). Interestingly, the real Hoban's hat does not give off yellow smoke/mist, like the prize does, and it has never been shown doing anything magical in the comics or anywhere else.
