Good thing kobolds never get boring or annoying!

Tragic news for Final Fantasy XIV fans this afternoon: The BBC is reporting that actress Sian Blake and her two children are believed to be missing and that police have discovered a trio of bodies in the family home’s garden, prompting a murder investigation. Blake’s partner is posted as “missing” and has been the subject of a “high-risk missing persons” investigation since he informed police of his family’s disappearance in December.

Blake plays a major character in the Final Fantasy XIV universe, Yugiri Mistwalker, the unofficial head of the Doman refugees and the first ninja introduced to the game. She’s best known to mainstream audiences for her role in British drama EastEnders. The actress’ disappearance and possible death are devastating FFXIV fans, some of whom are already requesting in-game memorials.

Update 01/07/2016 5:25:00 PM: The Beeb has unfortunately confirmed the bodies as Blake and her baby boys.

The remains of Sian Blake, 43, and her children Zachary Bilal Kent-Blake, eight, and Amon Ben George Kent-Blake, four, were found at the family’s south-east London home on 6 January. A police spokesperson said they had died from “head and neck injuries”. Ms Blake’s partner is being sought by police over the deaths. However, the BBC understands Arthur Simpson-Kent, 48, left the UK and may be in Ghana.

krieglich I’m sure now they can now save money on hiring someone less “famous”. Hopefully that will affect the game price.

There is a special wing in hell for people who commit acts like this. I hope to run it one day.

I play the game with the Japanese voice-acting, so I’m sorry to say I don’t actually know what she sounded like. : /
What a sick little world we live in. My condolences to the rest of the family, especially the husband if it turns out he was not actually behind it.

If he was, well, to say “Fuck ’em” would be a bit too polite.
