Master of Nu'un
"But perhaps... Yes...hm hm hm..I see now. It is through tyranny and fear that I shall ensure my charges follow the righteous path!" - Master of Nu'Un
Nu'Un is a boss that the Hero fights in Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Sky. He appears during a quest in which the player goes searching for the Abbot, Jack of Alltrades. Aside from that, the Hero is simultaneously searching for one of the many golden Fyggs that fell from the Yggdrasil Tree.
The Abbot is found at the very top of the Tower of Trades through a glowing portal-like door, on the inside of which the Abbot is praying to the Almighty for more power in order to better provide guidance for his wayward flock. As the power consumes him the Abbot becomes Nu'Un and his motivations become drastically altered for the worst. Shortly thereafter, Nu'Un challenges the Hero to a battle, claiming that he needs to test out his new found powers.
After the Hero defeats Nu'Un, he reverts back to his previous, considerably more harmless form. The Abbot seems disoriented and claims to have no recollection of any transformation - indeed, it seems he remembers very little after ingesting the Fygg.
- His name - Master of Nu'un - is a pun of "The Master of None"
