“I think you'll change your tune after seeing who's been slipping into my manor and stealing from my vault! It took a little roughing up, but eventually we got a confession out of the kid. Apparently, my missing treasures have been paying for your medicine for quite some time. As I'm sure you're well aware, stealing from a member of royalty is a grave crime. I'd rather not have to kill a kid, but the law is the law.”
—Ahab, in a conversation with Rishel
Prior to the game's events, Ahab launched a coup against Dagnell, seeking to usurp the throne. He slaughtered all of the heirs whom he could find and then imprisoned Dagnell and Queen Maria at Zacharia's recommendation. He also ordered Zacharia to secretly murder Princess Maria.
During the story, Ahab is fighting against Lord Lionheart of Selba for control of Salia. When Rishel refuses to provide aid to him, Ahab threatens to execute Bud and uses her as a hostage against him. He is eventually killed by Holmes's army during its liberation of Salia.
