He also has a daughter named Marianne Jurgen.
The leader of the Jurgen family, Nevillo was raised with a silver spoon but even an easy life did not dissuade him from having political ambitions. He reached a very high political position at a young age by using his cunningness and brilliance. He single-handedly increased the power and influence of his noble family whose status had fallen into obscurity not so long ago.
As the war with the Kartel intensified, many nobles left Ghent for Northpiece but Nevillo stayed, his pride could not allow him to abandon the war. Being a great marksman in his own right, he fought with the Imperial Soldiers against the Kartel.
He also became a regent of the Empire when Princess Erje was kidnapped by the Kartel during the war.
He is never satisfied and continues to pursue interest that will further his influence and status. His ambitions have caused him to clash with the “Jifa Faction”, a group of nobles considered to be close advisors of the Princess.
He believes the “Jifa Faction” has done nothing but use Princess Erje for their benefit and caused the deterioration within the Empire.
Because of his dissatisfaction with the current state of the Empire, he plans to replace the nobles that control the Government with a regime that is under a single powerful ruler and he will stop at nothing to achieve his ultimate goal.
This all culminated in a civil war in Empyrean. However, he was not the one who instigated the civil war, but his daughter, Marianne Jurgen. Despite the civil war not being a part of his plan, he played along and successfully displaced the Imperial Princess for now in the first stage of the war, along with having captured the heroic commander that led the extermination of the Apostle Anton, Jackter the Eagle Eye.
At the second phase of the civil war, Jurgen planned on executing the former Commander publicly, so as to hopefully demoralize the Loyalists and legitimize his cause. However, in the end, it failed because the Adventurer had just come back from defeating the Kashipas and helped with Sandstorm Varracht's plan to get Jackter out of his cell, as requested by the Imperial Princess.
This set off a chain of events that led with the culmination of the war finally being on the Loyalists' side as they and the Adventurer defeated most of the Northpiece nobility's forces, including imprisoning the head of the Wane family, Anje Wane. Despite this, Nevillo Jurgen refused to give up and planned on continuing the fight as he ordered his son, Edwin Jurgen, to gather their forces in Northpiece. However, the son refused and held a gun towards his own father. Nevillo tried and failed to persuade Edwin, in the end, he ended up being shot and killed, punished by his own son for the man's insubordinate actions towards the Princess, now Empress of Ziben, and for prolonging the suffering of the Empyrean people. Nevillo died on the floor on his own pool of blood, still believing in his belief and hubris that he could make Empyrean better.
- My family was a founding member of the country. It's famous in its own right, but not enough to represent the nobility of Northpiece. The day I decided to stop listening to my father was when things started changing for the better for my family. And when I became sixteen, Father made me the head of the in place of him.
- I understand some people are not happy with the treaty we've made with the Empire, but they can't see the forest for the trees. Look, fighting is all about shedding each other's blood, and we're letting them shed their blood for us. The people of Underworld can never hurt us. This treaty is helping us stabilize Empyrean. You shouldn't listen to those ignorant conspiracists.
- A few years ago, I encountered a group of pirates in the Hirring Archipelago, and I was without a single guard. But as you can see, I survived the battle. True nobles know how to defend themselves.

- Adventurer, thank you for coming this far. You weren't hurt that day, were you? Neither was I. By the time I returned to Ghent, everything was over... I won't ask you about Princess Erje. I know you're good friends with her, and asking about her will only make you feel uncomfortable. We'd love to hear anything you could tell us, but rest assured that we do not want to cause you any trouble.
- I've heard you met with my daughter. I'm sorry that she treated you so rudely. She'll never make that same mistake again. I thought she's grow up once she's married, but she's still acting like a child, and not just in front of me, either. I failed to raise her properly.
- There is no doubt what Captain Hiram did was reckless. There's a time and place for everything, but he ignored it. I guess that's what you can expect from a soldier who's used to using force. But it's too late to regret it now, and I'm determined to plow through this mess, whatever it takes. He made a rash decision... But what he did needed to be done sooner or later, for the people and for the development of Empyrean. I'll restore things to order and lead this country on the right path.
- His name might be a mistranslation of another name, Neville, which means 'new town' and is of Norman and French origin.
- His surname, Jurgen, is a name of German origins. It is a cognate of George, meaning they have similar etymological roots, but diverged into different naming paths. Both of these names come from the Greek word, Georgos, which means 'farmer', coming from two combined Greek words of ge (soil, earth) and ergon (work).
