[edit]
P E R S O N A L I T Y


L I K E S

Meats – Having subsisted for years on wild game and vegetables, Claisent has developed a rather plain palate for food, and appreciates simple yet hearty meat meals.
Wine – He’s developed a taste for Gridanian red.
Fighting – It’s what he’s best at, and he takes great pride in his skills and great care to keep them sharp.
Singing – Though he’s loathe to admit it around any but the most trusted company, he’s of the opinion that there are few better ways to shake off life’s hardships than a rousing song. His own vocal range is an average tenor, dipping into high baritone.

D I S L I K E S

Treachery – Having had his own life turned upside down by a scheme that framed him as a traitor to his comrades, Claisent has developed an utterly infernal hatred for traitors of all stripes. To betray his trust after what he’s experienced is simply to carve your death warrant in stone.
Condescension – He reserves a special contempt for people who presume to talk down to him unless he recognises their reasons as valid.
Cold – Just because he grew up learning how to deal with it doesn’t mean he enjoys cold weather in the slightest. He’s far more comfortable in Eorzea’s more hospitable climates; even the arid heat of Thanalan is preferable to Coerthas’ bitter cold.

H A B I T S  &  S K I L L S

Quirks/Vices

Flirts – Clai has always been receptive to flirtation, at least when he already has a measure of interest in the woman in question.
Gear Maintenance – Whether a compulsion or a coping mechanism developed over the years, he can spend bells at a time painstakingly caring for his weapons and armour. He finds that the requisite focus helps him relax and takes his attention off whatever issues may be bugging him.

Abilities/Skills

Expert Soldier – With years of experience as a soldier, Claisent is expertly trained in a variety of martial weapons, from swords and shields to axes and spears. His preference is for the greatsword.
Skilled Tactician – He is a cunning squad-level tactician and experienced leader of men, with deep knowledge of guerrilla tactics and logistical organisation.
Darkness – The enigmatic and deadly magicks of the Dark Knight have manifested in Claisent. At present, it is a force as dangerous to him as to others, but he’s quickly learning to control it with the aid of two fellows of his Free Company who are similarly trained. At its worst, his exertions of this grim aether can stimulate agonising pain in the bodies of those who come into direct contact with it. Just being around it when it surges freely from his body becomes physically repulsive, even nauseating.


Spirituality/Religion – Turned against both his original patron goddess and the Dravanian forces that rallied around Saint Shiva, Claisent has eschewed all religious faith, viewing it as either a crutch for the weak-willed or a tool of oppression and manipulation.


A P P E A R A N C E
Body – Tall and fairly lean, Claisent is built of wiry, powerful muscle. Honed by years of labour and combat, he’s considerably stronger than he looks.
Skin: His skin is of a naturally fair complexion, that has begun to take on a healthy tan beneath the Thanalan sun.
Hair: His hair is a sandy blond, darkening at the roots.
Eyes: His eyes are a dark, forest green. His vision is very healthy, and moderately strong in darkness and low light.
Clothes: Claisent has begun to fill his casual wardrobe with comfortable open shirts and sarouels, often worn with leather gloves and boots. In the field, he dons an imposing suit of plate armour.
Jewellery: The only piece of jewellery Clai is always known to wear is a simple metal clasp on his left ear.
Distinguishing Features: While his body is pitted with a variety of scars, as one might expect from a career soldier, one that always catches the eye is a broad burn scar across the left side of his torso and the middle of his left arm, the mark of a greater dragon he once fought.

"That Elezen with the soddin' big sword? I 'ear tell he's always takin' jobs that're like to put him in the path o' the Amal'jaa. It's like he's more interested in spillin' beastman blood than in the coin he earns." - Ul'dahn Merchant

  ✖ Deceased: This character has passed away.
  ? Hidden Feelings/Unknown: This character has one of all the color keys above, but isn't fully aware of it yet.
  Nailah Quill (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Boss
Claisent's employer, owner of the Kindred and head of its council of governing members. While they get along cordially enough, and he's been privy to confessions regarding her past that he has the feeling she's shared very sparingly, he doesn't feel he knows her well enough to consider her a friend.
  Cirina Malqir (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Ciri
A member of the Kindred council. Claisent has fought beside Cirina, enjoyed a number of fascinating and hilarious conversations with her, and considers her a friend whom he can confide in.
  Sarangerel Kahkol (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Saran
A fellow of the company, Cirina's wife, and one of Claisent's two instructors in the arts of the Dark Knight. A formidable woman in whom he has confided deeply, she has earned Claisent's admiration and respect, and he will gladly raise his sword for her whenever she should have need of it.
  W'gahr Lupercal (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Luper
Kindred councillor, self-proclaimed overlord of the Loft, and generally a friendly sort. Claisent finds himself at ease around the Seeker, and has come to respect his firm yet level-headed applications of his authority.
  Aliandrielle Naveleal (   ♦   ✔ ) - Alia
Clai's relationship with Alia is a confusing one. His first interaction with her was as a target for her hatred for their kind, though she warmed to him over time. After a time of incredible tension and mutual disdain, he's settled into a cordial respect for her, though her mannerisms still grate on him at times.
  O'ray Tia (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Ray
While he can enjoy tbe company of this happy-go-lucky scoundrel, Claisent maintains a level of caution around Ray. Whether the Seeker can be fully trusted remains to be seen.
  Maariya Genhu (   ♦   ●   ✔ )
A trained Free Paladin, aspiring to join the ranks of the Sultansworn. Though he can see she's well-intentioned, Clai's estimations of Maariya have been somewhat soured by her expression of disdain for the Darkness; a disdain he's done nothing to earn, he thinks, considering he has no choice but to take up the art and learn to control it.
  Kosetsu Kensei (   ♦   ●   ✔ )
The second of Claisent's instructors in the dark arts, this Raen is an enigma wrapped in a mystery. Utterly devoid of emotional expression - devoid of personality, even, beyond her stoic dedication to her duty - she's awkward to converse with at the best of times. Clai is content to maintain a cordial working relationship with her, and benefit from her training, though he doubts he'll ever be able to call her a friend.
  Ranic Iriq (   ●   ♠   ✔ )
Claisent will all but declare verbally that he can't stand the brutish Xaela. His deep disdain for Ranic is tempered only by his ability to get along with Alia and Cirina, Ranic's lover and closest friend respectively. He's willing to trust Cirina's word that Ranic's open dislike of him, his opinion that Claisent's lack of control over the Darkness makes him a danger to the company, is merely a roundabout way to contribute to his training by motivating him to rise above Ranic's expectations and silence his doubts. Just for the satisfaction of shutting him up, Clai intends to do exactly that.
  Mauh'a Relenah (   ♦   ●   ✔ ) - Mauh
This Keeper mage is a troubled soul who's experienced a great deal of loss. Having lent his sword to Mauh's revenge, and fought beside him on occasions afterwards, Clai has come to respect Mauh and enjoy his company.

✖ P L A Y E R   I N F O ✖
Hi there! I got my start in roleplaying on play-by-post forums, and have been doing so for approximately ten years. My MMO roleplay experience includes RIFT, Guild Wars 2, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Regarding combat: I have an abundance of experience with roll-based systems, but I much prefer freeform combat.

Regarding romance: While fairly promiscuous, Claisent is no stranger to romantic involvement; however, his first and last ended in a mess of bloodshed and heartbreak, and he's thus deeply withdrawn from the idea. I have always required that I be able to get along with the players of PCs with whom my characters become romantically involved, and that the relationship develops naturally rather than being forced for its own sake.


My other main character is Robert Thorne!
