Like most Miqo'te, Kasi has an extremely keen sense of smell and hearing, as well as a significantly above-average sense of balance for her kind. She can speak and understand 'Huntspeak,' a basic signaling language used between hunters and tribes in the Twelveswood.  
+
Although fairly short and petite by Eorzean standards, this adult dark-skinned Miqo’te manages to look at least a little imposing thanks to her confident look and her impressively toned muscles. She has all the hallmarks of a bodybuilder when her skin is exposed, but even when it isn’t, it’s generally because she’s covered in heavy platemail armor. There is an underlying sense of discipline and trained focus to her gait that hints at a past in a military or mercenary organization as well, which further adds to the air of rocky stability and ruggedness that she projects. In spite of it all, there is still a fairly bright glimmer of feminine charm to her- though it may be prone to flicker with the situation.
  
Unlike her kin, Kasi has a severe allergy to wheat which borders on life-threatening. Ingesting any kind of wheat product can cause her to have difficulty breathing for several hours depending on the amount she is exposed to, which is potentially also accompanied by rash, vomiting, moderate itching, and a runny nose. Even physical contact with wheat can cause her skin to break out into an itchy rash. In extreme cases, she can be left completely unable to breathe due to swelling.
+
Her deep black and red hair is a wild and chaotic mess at best. The lengthening locks are thrown back and coiled into a haphazard ponytail behind a pair of furry ears, the left of which is missing a chunk off the tip. While she obviously grooms her hair regularly, she does little in the way of style beyond merely keeping it functional for whatever a hard day might throw her way. The singular exception to the haphazard order of the ponytail is a lengthy tuft of hair that has been allowed to grow long enough to all but obscure the left side of her face. Despite the obstruction, it isn’t very difficult to get at least a glimpse at the ugly scar and the murky blind eye behind it. She carries no other obvious blemishes or scars, save for a streak of white face paint drawn across her cheeks and nose.

<center>''"She certainly looks like she's seen some better days... and some worse ones. She still looks like she could rip the arms off of some poor fella if she dared to try."''</center>
+
* A fairly known traveler of all paths across the world, she has made a rough living as a sellsword, trader, and roadside cook with a specialization in smoked jerky. Inquiries into her obsession with meat has resulted in some travelers learning about her wheat allergy.
 
+
* Rumors of the distant past seem to suggest that she has or once had prominent connections or involvement with an underground criminal organization. Some of the rarer rumors suggest she was even a mob boss at one point.  
Although fairly short and petite by Eorzean standards, this adult dark-skinned Miqo’te manages to look at least a little imposing thanks to her black and silver heavy plate armor. While her top half is nearly completely covered in sturdy mithril, her lower half places a bit more emphasis on movement with a simple skirt and leather boots with plated shin guards. What little skin she shows is impressively muscular- a result, no doubt, of extensive combat training in plate armor with heavy weapons. Her belt also hosts a skinning knife toward the back, a small arrangement of potions, and finally a small satchel of jerky. Her backside is host to a rather large mithril zweihander and a travel rucksack, which appears to carry all manner of wilderness survival gear and a cast-iron skillet of rather expensive make.
+
* She is a long-time resident of the Shroudwolves, a Miqo’te clan in Gridania, and could historically be found there on occasion when she was between jobs or treks.  
 
+
* By consulting with Grand Company officials, her military service record could be easily found. She served five years in the Twin Adders before being honorably discharged. Her record includes mention of criminal charges levied against her, and her absolution of those charges through exemplary military service. Her commanding officer was a woman named Ally Southway.  
Her hair is a functional, but unkempt, wild, and tangled mess, with locks of red hair lost among a roiling sea of black. Even the manner in which her hair is kept short is haphazard, with the ends strained and frayed- almost like she uses her own sword to cut it. Her furry ears are perked up like she were alert, though her left ear is notably missing a small chunk off the tip. An intense, red eye peeks out from under the right side of the disheveled mess of hair, but it's counterpart on the left side is dull, faded, and lifeless by comparison when it isn't covered by an eyepatch. The difference is almost certainly accounted for by the long, grim scar that runs halfway down the left side of her face and over her left eye. The remainder of her face is relatively free from obvious injury or blemish, save for the streak of white war paint that runs horizontally across her nose and halfway over her cheeks. Her lips are a slight shade lighter than the black of her hair, and almost always curled into a relaxed, jovial smile.
+
* In employment circles, she had a well-known reputation for always being true to her word. She was also particularly selective of the jobs she takes on, preferring ones that offer significant challenge. She refused to accept jobs that involve a Miqo’te target.
 
+
* Among the tribes of the Twelveswood, she has most recently earned the derisive moniker, ‘Kinslayer.’ If the account of the incident is to be believed, she murdered an uninvolved tribal woman in cold blood during a battle with outlaws.  
===<div style="padding:0px 15px;border-style: solid; border-width: 1px 1px 1px; border-color:#808080; border-radius:10px; background: #800000;font-size:14px;color: #ffffff">Personality & Motives</div>===
 
<center>''"Kin and family are everything. Never forsake them."''</center>
 
 
 
Cheerful, even-tempered, and calm under pressure, Kasi is a soldier through-and-through that thrives at being the eye of the storm. She is personable, friendly, and informal towards others, and can get along with nearly anyone- ally and enemy alike. While she is slow to anger or taunt, the one thing she cannot stand is a coward. She prides herself foremost on a reputation of being upfront and honest in all her dealings, and expects the same in return. When it comes to those she calls family and other Miqo'te, Kasi is the very definition of benevolent and even takes on protective and motherly qualities. She will put herself in harm's way without hesitation to defend them.
 
 
 
While most may not be given cause to suspect otherwise, Kasi is anything but a paragon of kindness and philanthropy. When it comes to the other races, she is coldly apathetic on first meeting, but not necessarily racist. She turns a blind eye toward slavery, drugs, torture, and murder, and even willfully profits by and supports such institutions. While she always keeps her word, she will only adhere to the strict interpretation of it- not necessarily to the spirit in which it was given. At best, she is true to her oaths, and at worst, she can be an outright manipulative schemer that will not balk to take advantage of a situation at someone else's expense.
 
 
 
While she has adapted well to civilization and common social norms, there is a savage, feral side to Kasi that is a strong echo of her tribal roots. She prefers her meats to be rare- medium at most- and foregoes the use of utensils, instead opting to eat purely with her hands. She is particularly rough when it comes to both matters of love and war, and can easily be seen as overly dominant, loud, and even violent in either situation. Kasi also has a well-known habit of being unable to sleep properly in a bed, and prefers to sleep either against trees or up on a tree limb.
 
 
 
Kasi is primarily motivated by a desire to preserve Miqo'te tribal traditions and heritage in the modern era, and by her dream of one day seeing the formation of a universal culture and nation of Miqo'te that puts family and kin above all else. To achieve this end, she pursues the lure of gil to fund such an enormous undertaking, and tries to convert others to follow her dream along the road. Kasi goes to great lengths to teach others the importance of kin and family, and that kin fighting kin, or family fighting family, is the most abominable thing of all.
 
 
 
===<div style="padding:0px 15px;border-style: solid; border-width: 1px 1px 1px; border-color:#808080; border-radius:10px; background: #800000;font-size:14px;color: #ffffff">History & Employment</div>===
 
<center>''"What doesn't kill you..."''</center>
 
 
 
Kasi's history up until recently is not a terribly storied one, though the account of it may be more interesting in the details if one were to ask her directly. As far as public knowledge goes, Kasi grew up in the South Shroud with a tribe of Miqo'te poachers who, at least at the time, were raising the children as a community family rather than father-mother-child units. As a result, she never really knew her parents short of a single encounter with a woman who claimed to be her mother. Kasi left the tribe as soon as she came of age, adopted her own surname, and joined the Twin Adders both as a means to get formal combat training as well as scrub her poaching record clean. Kasi took to the social challenges of being an outcast just as strongly as she did to the physical ones of being in the military, and looks back on the experience fondly as one of the defining moments of her entire life. She served 5 years in the Gridanian military before being honorably discharged.
 
 
 
Since her discharge from the Twin Adders 15 years since, Kasi worked as a self-employed contractor doing a fairly wide array of jobs, ranging from delivery to guard escort to bounty hunting. As long as the job had her traveling, there wasn't much her fairly loose morals would bar her from doing if hired- the gil was just an added bonus. Even then, she has always had her own personal code of ethics that she wouldn't compromise even for a hefty weight in gil. She had a reputation for outright refusing to take any jobs that involved a Miqo’te target, as she intensely detests seriously fighting against her own kin.
 
 
 
Today, Kasi still manages to spend most of her time running odd jobs and wandering the roads, from southern Thanalan to the northern wastes of Coerthas and as far east as Doma. She meets, and regularly trades, with many other travelers along the road, which has resulted in her having a fairly wide range of contacts all across the continent. She is somewhat famous on the road for her homemade jerky, which she often sells and trades.

This backstory is provided for potential connections with other characters. For events that have transpired since then, you'll have to ask Kasi yourself!''
 
 
 
===<div style="padding:0px 15px;border-style: solid; border-width: 1px 1px 1px; border-color:#808080; border-radius:10px; background: #800000;font-size:14px;color: #ffffff">Hobbies</div>===
 
<center>''"Nobody else cooks with or even touches that smoker. That's sacred ground for me."''</center>
 
 
 
As a former Twin Adder as well as tribal Keeper, Kasi is well-versed in wilderness survival and revels in the opportunity to travel the world and live off the land, along with the sense of freedom that brings. She even enjoys the chance to sleep wherever she can find solace, whether it be in a tent, a cave, or simply under the stars against a tree. Kasi is something of a grilling enthusiast and it would be a challenge to find her without her trusty cast-iron skillet close at hand. She also has access to a large smoker that was purchased for her by her clan, the Shroudwolves, which she uses to mass produce her fairly famous homemade jerky. Kasi spends a fair amount of time staying in shape by practicing with her zweihander and running laps in full plate around the Lavender Beds in the mornings.
 
 
 
===<div style="padding:0px 15px;border-style: solid; border-width: 1px 1px 1px; border-color:#808080; border-radius:10px; background: #800000;font-size:14px;color: #ffffff">Chocobo Companion</div>===
 
<center>''"C'mon, Reaver! Let's go!"''</center>
 
 
 
'Reaver' is a snow-white Gridanian war chocobo brought up and raised in and for the cavalry units. Kasi and Reaver met for the first time several years into Kasi's tour of duty with the Twin Adders, and the two increasingly saw action together for patrols and border skirmishes during the escalating conflict with Garlemald. Originally, Reaver was on-loan to Kasi as standard-issue equipment for her unit, and while their first few missions together were fraught with friction, their bond was ultimately forged in war. When Kasi was honorably discharged after her five years of service with the Twin Adders, she was able to negotiate taking ownership of Reaver in lieu of pay. Reaver still dons his original Gridanian barding, although it has become somewhat patchwork over the years. Thanks in large part to Reaver, Kasi was able to make it along the road as a wandering mercenary and trader.
 
 
 
While Reaver can be finicky, eccentric, and even stupid at times, he does not scare easily and tends to be aggressive toward anyone he doesn't know- qualities for which he is prized. He is primarily fed greens and has a particular fondness of jerky as a special treat. He can often be found at Kasi's side when she is on foot and even at her side when in battle. As a trained Gridanian war chocobo, Reaver can be especially dangerous to foes in close quarters, and he also is able to use a few limited spells to support his owner.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

Although fairly short and petite by Eorzean standards, this adult dark-skinned Miqo’te manages to look at least a little imposing thanks to her confident look and her impressively toned muscles. She has all the hallmarks of a bodybuilder when her skin is exposed, but even when it isn’t, it’s generally because she’s covered in heavy platemail armor. There is an underlying sense of discipline and trained focus to her gait that hints at a past in a military or mercenary organization as well, which further adds to the air of rocky stability and ruggedness that she projects. In spite of it all, there is still a fairly bright glimmer of feminine charm to her- though it may be prone to flicker with the situation.

Her deep black and red hair is a wild and chaotic mess at best. The lengthening locks are thrown back and coiled into a haphazard ponytail behind a pair of furry ears, the left of which is missing a chunk off the tip. While she obviously grooms her hair regularly, she does little in the way of style beyond merely keeping it functional for whatever a hard day might throw her way. The singular exception to the haphazard order of the ponytail is a lengthy tuft of hair that has been allowed to grow long enough to all but obscure the left side of her face. Despite the obstruction, it isn’t very difficult to get at least a glimpse at the ugly scar and the murky blind eye behind it. She carries no other obvious blemishes or scars, save for a streak of white face paint drawn across her cheeks and nose.

PAST STORIES & RUMORS

  • A fairly known traveler of all paths across the world, she has made a rough living as a sellsword, trader, and roadside cook with a specialization in smoked jerky. Inquiries into her obsession with meat has resulted in some travelers learning about her wheat allergy.
  • Rumors of the distant past seem to suggest that she has or once had prominent connections or involvement with an underground criminal organization. Some of the rarer rumors suggest she was even a mob boss at one point.
  • She is a long-time resident of the Shroudwolves, a Miqo’te clan in Gridania, and could historically be found there on occasion when she was between jobs or treks.
  • By consulting with Grand Company officials, her military service record could be easily found. She served five years in the Twin Adders before being honorably discharged. Her record includes mention of criminal charges levied against her, and her absolution of those charges through exemplary military service. Her commanding officer was a woman named Ally Southway.
  • In employment circles, she had a well-known reputation for always being true to her word. She was also particularly selective of the jobs she takes on, preferring ones that offer significant challenge. She refused to accept jobs that involve a Miqo’te target.
  • Among the tribes of the Twelveswood, she has most recently earned the derisive moniker, ‘Kinslayer.’ If the account of the incident is to be believed, she murdered an uninvolved tribal woman in cold blood during a battle with outlaws.

FUTURE STORYLINES & RP HOOKS

  • She currently has a bounty placed on her by the tribes of the Twelveswood. However, the bounty appears to have been registered by a third party instead of the tribe directly, and isn’t limited to simply the Gridania region only.
  • She has been spotted within Ishgard and Limsa most recently, attempting to charter a ship to take her to the Far East. Witness accounts indicate she was in a hurry- possibly on the run.
