If I break the glass then I'll have to fly

There's no one to catch me if I take a dive
I'm scared of changing, the days stay the same

The world is spinning but only in gray

General Information
Kaim is a dancer by trade, but has moved from that as much as he used to in order to take on more active adventuring. He is a member of the Free Company "Rainbow Connection," and frequently does jobs and tasks for them. As a general rule, Kaim is difficult to get to know, as he is very closed lipped and introverted by nature. Once in his close circle of friends, however, he is fiercely loyal and never shuts up. He also dabbles in mysticism and tarot as well as learning more stalwart techniques in order to best support his friends.
I will not be defined by my appearance.
Turquoise. Raven black. Light Brown. Short and lean. Melodic.
He holds himself
like a ballet dancer.
Quiet, introverted. A bright white brand
of a water lily on
his left wrist.
Typical male
miqo'te markings.
Hair & Eyes
Kaim's hair is long and solid black for the most part. Usually it falls to his buttocks. However, depending on the timeline, he cut it short, into something a bit longer than a bob in a panicked fit. The reasons for this must be discovered through backstory reveal in RP.
Physique & Markings
Kaim is short, standing at 5'2" in flat shoes, with a lean yet curvy frame. He is most definitely toned from a life of performing, but he's not bulky at all. He has miqo'te markings typical of his race, but wears makeup frequently, so sometimes the markings are covered.
Hygiene & Attire
Kaim is always fastidiously clean and usually wears rather expensive looking clothing. Always of high quality and nice fabrics.
Psychological Profile
Kaim has a hidden past that haunts him. Mostly he tries to keep this close to his chest, but certain things will trigger him and cause an outburst that seems out of place or more severe than the situation warrants. He is shy and introverted, and has difficulties speaking with strangers. This does not stop him from adventuring, however. Mostly he lets his actions and motions speak for themselvse. Usually it becomes fairly clear on knowing him for a little while that he's hiding fairly severe trauma.
Kaim has a soft and melodic tenor speaking voice. His singing voice isn't refined, but it has a sweet quality to it.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
Kaim is usually kind to a fault, though he has a mean streak that can be triggered through certain circumstances. He's quiet and unassuming despite his flashier and more elegant appearances, though he's not afraid to get his hands dirty. He's been known to throw a punch in defense of a friend or someone weaker. More accurately, throw a kick.

Any relevant notes about combat should be added here, such as player preference, system preference, or links off-site to sheets using existing XIV player-made combat systems.


Most of Kaim's history prior to his joining Rainbow Connection is a mystery. He speaks of himself and his background very rarely, and keeps details about himself close to his chest. What is known about him, however, is that he was born in Gridania, raised in Thanalan, and moved later back to Gridania. He is also adopted, hence the non-miqo'te name. He has never been a part of a miqo'te clan, nor does he ever wish to be, for the most part. He does enjoy "belonging," and puts a lot of effort and time into deeds for his Free Company that will hopefully earn him acceptance.
Disclaimer: Kaim's backstory and history will only be revealed to those he trusts implicitly. Therefore, it will take quite a bit of RP and chemistry, or in-game RP events in connection with his backstory or people involved in his history to bring this knowledge to the fore.
Sixth Astral Era
Nearly every detail of his life prior to the Calamity is shrouded in mystery. He speaks of it extremely rarely and it seems to be a large source of his psychological trauma.

Seventh Umbral Era
Prior to the calamity, Kaim moved back to Gridania. At the time he was in his early adolescence, and was adopted by a kindly elezen couple, who bestowed upon him the surname Vellan. When the Calamity occurred, he was in his early adventuring. The sight of the meteors triggered the Echo in him, and he began to hear his first whisperings. His talent with the Echo is not something he likes speaking of, at all. Even more unusual, it seems to make him very uncomfortable. Especially when Hydaelyn is referenced.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
Depending on the RP event, Kaim will likely have been married to M'atrien Vellan. Prior to that he was an adventurer who followed the WoL on his adventures, in addition to his duties for the Free Company he holds membership to. He is also a dancer of some renoun, and performs when he's able to, much to the frustration of his agent and venues, as his performances are rather unpredictable. He committed to much more regular performances prior to falling into adventuring with the WoL, though few can hardly fault him for his duties to the famous hero.

RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play .
Ask about .
I won't play .
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.

Player Information
Player Note
There is a lot of information on this character wiki, but it is by no means completely comprehensive. There are chunks of backstory that are left intentionally vague so that details can be later added as developed through creative writing or in role-play revelation. Feel free to use Common or Uncommon rumors freely, if you want to use a Rare Rumor as a plot hook or to spark RP, I would ask that you send me a tell first, to make certain it's alright.
