Othil was a Runisian bounty hunter under the employment of an Underground operative.
At some point, Othil was tasked by someone in the Underground to kidnap the Visarions, Luther and Ruselt, in Laguz. The attempt was thwarted by Vulkas, who killed some of Othil's crew, and incapacitated the rest. Othil, however, escaped.
Othil was summoned by the Underground to a secluded warehouse where he encountered an Underground wireless operator. The operator told him that the Underground weren't happy with his lack of discretion, and he now posed a threat to the Underground's covert policies. The operator, acting under orders from Undergound managment, ordered the guards to kill Othil's crew. The Operator then shot Othil in the core, killing him.
