Gota'wo Tomo is relatively tall for a Miqo'te. Standing at a height of five falms, six ilms, he has no difficulty reaching the cookie jar on the top shelf unlike the smaller folk lalafell he often is employed by. His face is clear of any blemishes or scars from the countless battles he has seen, attributed no less to his desire to look his best when it comes to getting close to people. His eyes give off a gentle hue of blue, akin to a clear blue sky, however upon staring into them, one can see the inner demon that hides within. His hair is a dominate feature of his that he often praises, he often feels a need to stroke his fingers through his soft blond hair from time to time, especially in the company of others when he is asserting himself over the opposite sex.
For an Arcanima specialist and treasure hunter, he is very fit for his age and size. Able to climb a tree as fast as his fallen warrior brethren and ostracized sisters. At roughly 9% body fat, his muscle mass is well toned, allowing him to lift his body weight easily up and over most obstacles with little hindrance.
Gota's attire is often tight and conforming to his body in order to not hinder him out in the field. Everything he needs he keeps strapped to his back and underside of his decorative harness. Each section behind his back holds small pouches in which he keeps simple things he finds, wallets he has stolen, loose gil, papers, and even powdered salves. The decorative harness is both practical and fashionable. The collar particularly houses a shortwave magi-tech installed linkpearl case, allowing him to quickly listen in from a distance to the many pearls he often plants on or around his targets. The second function of his harness is the encased ceruleum fuel vials that rest behind his left shoulder, beneath the pauldron. These vials are typically inert until their center membrane is broken. These vials are what power and maintain his prosthetic augmented left forearms functions. On average, with normal daily use, he can go for three days before having to use a vial. He carries on him two vials at a time. In the event he must lift his own weight, or use his hand in battle extensively, the fuel, if lucky, will last him in total between the two vials and a full arm, six hours.
Many of the pieces of armor plating and decorative trim on his armor are personal and customized to his liking, often spoils from his treasure hunting. He has been known to find rare stones and even lost allagan tech only just to wear it sportingly until he grows bored of it and sells it. In times past he has been known to utilize the artifacts he's found in battle to turn the tide in his favor. His most favorable was a small ADS barrier projector that he used to seal his target in, and slowly drown by rolling them into a river, with the water bypassing the barrier seamlessly.
Gota's personality he exerts is often the personality needed to get the job done. Often labeled as a player of sorts, he can often seem charming to the ladies and bold, cold and aggressive with men. However as people grow closer to him they would notice both personalities he exerts are false, that he is only playing them. He is quite mad beneath his outward expression, a trait gifted to him when he came into contact with a lost allagan tomestone of knowledge that bestowed upon him traumatic images that forever changed him.
Depending on the individual dealing with him and the context of the discussion, Gota has been known to let his troubled mind slip, leading to severe bouts of aggression and rage. His newly acquired Magi-tech left forearm is often deployed in such situations as he has been known to strangle people, pinning them against a wall, be them man or woman. Anyone who attempts to rattle him, successful or not, often find themselves at the mercy of his cold hatred.

Gota'wo's style of combat is unusual for one of the arcanima profession. Originally in the past he often played hands off, opting to attack from range with arcane geometries and his familiar carbuncle. However since the loss of his left forearm in the battle that took place at the gold bazaar and his contact with forgotten allagan technologies, he has since devoted his life to one more physical, opting to rely less on his arcanima magics and instead direct his attacks with physical blows, many of which are dedicated to his left arm's mechanical function and wolfram grade razor sharp claws.

Weaponry & Armor
Allagan Grimoire Book of Casting
A lost artifact of the Allagan empire that Gota'wo has obtained. It has been heavily modified so that its contents can be discerned for use. Additionally its pages seem to shift right before ones eyes when read.

Eikon Leather Corset of Casting
Gota'wo's modifed Eikon Leather Corset. Designed for flexibility and dependability in combat. Housed inside the shoulder and collar of this armor is a Magitek relay regulator that helps provide power and control to Gota'wo's Magitek arm and feet.

Schloar soulcrystal.png
Scholar Soul Stone
There are many like it throughout time, each unique to the user and legacy. This stone however is Gota'wo's, unearthed some years ago during a treasure hunt deep in the lands of Outer La Noscea.

Portable inventory
Mega-Lighting Ward Potion
Due to the large amounts of metal that now are bonded to Gota'wo, he finds it sufficient and important to his survival to keep a steady supply of Lightning ward potions on hand.

Sesame Cookie
Essential survival rations for on the go. Highly caloric to Gota'wo's needs, and yet small and light to carry a large sum around with him always.

Personal Vehicle
Draught Chocobo
A commandeered mode of transportation Gota'wo obtained some time back. The previous owners of the beast of burden had little to no use of it after encountering a determined Miqo'te. In Gota'wo's words "I don't know the birds name, nor the owners, but that's of little importance, they are dead now."

Personal Room
Gota'wo has no residence. He lays and sleeps where he must, be it on the street, or another's house he has scammed his way into. However he does own a small workshop, hidden away in the windmill of the Goblet. Residence of the Goblet often complain of loud noises and flashing lights shining from the cracks of its walls, some even say the sky seems to darken when he sequesters himself away for days on end.

Primary Base

  • SUPERB(+5): N/A
  • GREAT(+4): Lore
  • GOOD(+3): Fight, Crafts
  • FAIR(+2): Magic, Athletics, Provoke
  • AVERAGE(+1): Will, Notice, Investigate, Physique

High-Concept Aspect

  • Megalomaniac Researcher (Academician)

  • Research and advancement is the driving nature of Gota'wo. His unhealthy obsession has often lead him down both great and horrifying discoveries, nevertheless, he continues to grow because of it. His understanding of the aetheric and magical arts gives him a scholarly atmosphere outside of his personal expression of himself. To most however, he lives by the means justifies the course, aiding often in battle to others as a skilled arcanist by trade.

Troubled Aspect

  • Traumatic Implanted Memories

  • The Burden of Knowledge is more often a burden then a blessing. Recalls phantom pains and memories of past allagan experiment subjects, which can often lead to freezing, or bad choices in his megalomaniac state.

Stress and Consequences

  • PHYSICAL: (0/1) (0/2) (0/3)
  • MENTAL: (0/1) (0/2) (0/3)
  • MINOR: (0/2)
  • MODERATE: (0/4)
  • SEVERE: (0/6)


  • Style Stunt - Dirty Fighter
  • Gain +3 instead of +2 when invoking an enemy Consequence on a Fight attack.

  • Style Stunt - Dreadwyrm Trance
  • For an FP, gain the Aspect Dreadwyrm Trance with one free invoke. This aspect gives +3 instead of +2 when used to attack with Magic.

  • Personal Stunt - Aetheric Supercell
  • Any time Gota'wo spends a round in combat without defending or changing zones, he gains a boost to Magic or Physical of his choice; this boost does not stack(see end). This stunt does not trigger on the opening round of combat. By utilizing the Magitek prosthetic legs and arm, large amounts of aether can be stored for a short period of time. If unused by the following round, the aether quickly discharges into the air.

  • Personal Stunt - Fast Ball Special
  • Utilizing his Carbuncle familiar in combat, Gota'wo may use Fight to attack enemies in adjacent zones by throwing his Carbuncle at them. Target must be in line of sight and clear of obstructions.

  • Personal Stunt - Allagan Insight
  • Gain +2 to lore by tapping into the treasure trove of knowledge that was implanted into him.

Three Character Concepts

  • Three-fifths Machine
  • Gota'wo's Legs from the knees down and Left Arm from the elbow down are Magitek Prosthetic. He has enhanced footing and steady grip when hanging and is particularly robust. Negatively, Electricity is extremely potent to him.

  • Ooh! Shiny!
  • Gota'wo is obsessed with research and Lost Treasure, particularly allagan high tech interest and understanding. This drives his innate lore on subjects and understanding. The allure can often be too great, often putting him in danger.

  • It's Always Mating Season
  • Gota'wo is a hound dog by nature. It is not unlike him to stand out, take a shot for, cause trouble and become distracted when trying to flirt with the opposite sex. This has lead him to intervene and take attacks for some. When not negatively putting him in harm's way and instead aiding someone, he tries to score descriptive flair in his actions.
