- Marnot - A flirtatious man from Fluorgis who often meets women through letter writing. Marnot has a rather bad habit of scheduling meetings with multiple women that he has met through these letters on the same day, which he resolves by simply posting a petition for someone to go meet these women posing as him. He has likely broken the hearts of quite a few women, causing one seeq girl in particular to cry, prompting her two siblings to arrange a meeting with him so they could pay him back for doing so (although Luso is sent in his place). At some point, he falls for a viera named Bcja who, in turn, falls for Al-Cid. Upon finding out about Bcja, Marnot posts a petition for someone to duel Al-Cid so that he may uphold his "honor". Petitioner for the quests "An Earnest Search", "An Earnest Quandary", "An Earnest Multitude", "An Earnest Delight", and "A Dashing Duel".
- Mauri - A nu mou "no-name researcher", with all of his research seeming to focused on the nature of the "Stone with No Name". The Stone with No Name is a remnant of an ancient civilization, a magickal instrument that is said to seal off an Otherworld from is said to take those who press a seal up against it to a location hidden from the modern world, a theory which proved correct when tested on the stone, which somehow materializes in Targ Wood, Camoa, and Graszton, all at different times. The researcher hired Clan Gully to carry out these tests, providing the clan with the seals that are required to access the hidden areas: the Star Seal, the Moon Seal, and the Sun Seal. The Stone with No Name later went on to appear in a fourth location; inside of Ruins of Delgantua, but unfortunately, Mauri passes away before his research can be complete.

Becomes concerned about the well being of these ruins when monsters settle in Simoon dunes and posts a petition to get rid of them. It should be noted that Rothwall could very well be just another member of Khamja, posting a phony petition in order to lure Luso out to the Kthili Sands so that the bewitched Adelle could steal his grimoire from him.
