Known as The White Qsiti during A Voice from the Past, he sends Rush to retrieve the Forbidden Tome. After defeating the quest's boss, Souleater, the player learns from past qsiti subordinates (called The White Qsiti's Former Aide) about the past of Ludope as Captain in an army. As his whole division (the Second Brigade of Melphina) was killed, his mind suffered a heavy blow, and his dreams were tormented by voices from the past, hardening his once kind personality. The Aide hints that Ludope figured he'd be able to bring them back to life with the tome (which is later confirmed), but the book was only dust at that point, as it had been hundreds of years. The Aide hands the Picture of the Second Brigade to Rush, and tells him to speak to their captain, tell him to have no regrets, as they themselves didn't, and passed on to Elysion. Ludope refuses the picture, giving it to Rush instead of taking it.
