He that holdeth fast unto his convictions shall never count betrayal amongst his crimes,
though all the world may call him villain.
My path is unchanged; my creed sacrosanct.
This I believe with all my heart

General Information

WIP - Mind the dust!

Appearance

Hair color: Jet black. The tips used to fade as a child in the hot baking of the sun, but the colder regions of Eorzea have stopped this. He now keeps it fashionably dyed to match his mood and occasionally sports a bit of length he pulls back in a bit of braid.
Eye color: Pink – like his grandmother and is actually quite fond of the color because its one of the few things he can recall about her. They are frequently rimmed out with glasses he took from his mentor (with plain, clear lenses inserted).
Skin color: His mentor used to say it was the color of the polar skies on a mid-day trek
Height/Weight: 6’8, 188 lbs
Piercings: Both the lower curves of his horns have earring mounts.
Tattoos/Markings: Six carefully burned dots representing his commitment to his vows. (Which will be developed through RP).
Body Description: Helski has slender, seemingly average looking frame. However, he is surprisingly athletic as a result of frequent jaunts into the wilderness for his work and a bit of sparing at questionable establishments on the weekends. He is reasonably toned and puts a bit of pride into what he consumes. He has a cool and stoic gaze and gives off a very stern impression upon first meetings. When he’s with his partner or a dear friend his smile he has been known to provide the most softest of images imagined.
Extra Features: A three-inch scar just above the cuff line on is left hand from the attack during his childhood.

Personality

Personality Traits

  • Thoughtful
  • Passionate
  • Willful
  • Imposing
  • Honest
  • Mournful

Mannerisms

Personality: Aiden is rather focused and ambitious when he’s “on” at work. He can remain calm even during the most turbulent times. He enjoys planning out his actions methodically and with great attention detail. He has a rather traumatic past, but believes in healthy coping mechanisms, thus frequently relieving his work-day stresses with soothing company and nature. Even though he enjoys intimate encounters occasionally when traveling through towns when starved enough for affection, Helski when in a monogamous relationship is fiercely protective, loyal, loving, and supportive of his partner or at least he believes he would be having never gotten close enough to see.

Normal mood: Collected, Confident, and Quiet. As a result of his early life, Helski has become a very standoffish, but by no means sheltered individual. On the surface he appears rather extroverted and outgoing, but is hesitant to reveal to much of his mood or feelings on most matter, save for the few moments of frustrated confusion when they pop out unexpectedly.

Early Life

Childhood

Helski was born to a small family of the Qalli tribe, where he first recalls gaining his love of all things song. His mother had long since passed and was left with only his father, his half-sister from a Raen woman who too had long since left, and his paternal grandparents. When he was the equivalent age of 5 (with respect to human years) his tribe was relocating for the coming hotter months. Despite the best intentions of this task, Buduga scouts had been lying in wait while the tribe was focused on traversing the desert en masse. His father already exhausted from a difficult life was struck down without much fight alongside his grandparents. Fleeing into the desert with a group of other Qalli and his sister, they managed to take refuge in the soft limestone caves lining the trail. But the Buduga did not so easily give up and over the course of several days, most those hiding either fled, were killed, or taken prisoner. Being relatively small as a child it was easy for Helski to remain hidden, but his sister, fearful of staying still risked running out into the open, and her fate remains unknown to him. Helski remained hidden with a few other children until the hunger and thirst was too much to bear. It was by pure luck that a Kha excursion, returning with a large group of Elezen traders and explorers happened upon the savage aftermath while the children were picking food and medicine among the dead out of desperation.

Adolescence

Little expressed/known yet.

Adulthood

Helski spent the remainder of his youth with the Kha and traveled frequently with select Elezen mentors and benefactors, eventually deciding to follow them back to the Eorzean continent so that he could expand his studies and experiences. Most his interests have been wide spread and he is currently trying to determine where it is he wishes to specialize.

Recent Times

Has established a small abode within the safety of a Free Company where he can work and sleep without fear at night after his travelss

Player Info

Put any notes from the player here!

My Policies

  • Communicate, Communicate, Communicate!

    Seriously if you are uncomfortable with RP'ing something out or how something went, you want to plan a specific plot/action, or just need to get something off your chest - DO IT! I don't bit and honestly find the best RP is a an open and communicative RP between players.

  • Ghosting

    I'm understanding - no really. I get it, real life happens, the interest isn't there, time is nowhere to be found. Just don't leave me hanging. Take the 15 seconds needed to message me in game or on discord to say you want to cut it off.

  • Tolerance

    I do not, let me repeat, DO NOT, tolerate Racism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Albelism, Misogyny or any form of extreme hate, and prejudice in my OOC or IC chats. PERIOD. If you have an opinion in that regard, okay keep it to yourself. Because to be honest, knowing and dealing with these is a total joy kill on a massive scale for me. So yeah just be a cool person and let's not huh?

OOC Character Info Links
  • As an RP'r: Been RPing for just over 20 years! My one constant hobby :)
  • OOC/IC: Borrowed from Achillies because I couldn't word it better myself: I have a very clear distinction when it comes to OOC/IC. They must remain separate at all times if we are to RP together, especially on an extended basis and I reserve the right to end interactions should this be impeded upon. I've been burnt heavily by people mistaking IC care and OOC friendship and attention with romantic regard and honestly I don't wish to go through another such debacle once more. If my character dislikes yours that does not mean I hold the same sentiment. If my character loves yours that does not translate to me feeling the same for you, though I might feel a platonic equivalent. I am not my characters and they are not me. Respect this and we shall get along famously.
  • Timezone/World: EST/EDT/UTC -5 on Diablos; Mostly play late into the evening & weekends
