Apururu is a non-playable Tarutaru character from Final Fantasy XI. She is a minister of the Federation of Windurst's Manustery and is responsible for the expansion and maintenance of the nation's Cardian forces. She is also the daughter of former Manustery head and Cardian inventor Zonpa-Zippa. Her brother, Ajido-Marujido, is a minister of the Orastery. As the more level-headed sibling, Apururu is often called upon to extricate Ajido-Marujido from sticky situations.
Apururu's tenure with the Manustery is marred by the institution's inability to meet its operating expenses. Though modern Cardians are more reliable than ever, Apururu is forced to make cutbacks and consider wild financial schemes to keep the ministry afloat.
