Appearance & Personality
- While a bit broader in the shoulders and taller than many people envision Miqo’te being, Lan is pretty much a typical specimen of his race. On occasion he has been called handsome despite the facial scars, a few women have even commented that it gives him a sort of ruggedly handsome look. He will refute such compliments though and state that he is nothing special. Lan tends to keep his hair on the shorter side so that it does not interfere with his vision in combat. His eyes are an icy blue and one of his old soldiers remarked that sometimes Lan's gaze could freeze Ifrit himself. Most of the time he has a frown or outright scowl on his face. Lan has a few facial scars, nothing that disfigures him really. He also has multiple scars on his torso and back as well as smaller scars on his arms and legs, the most noticeable marks are a long scar running along his left side, just above his lowermost ribs, a souvenier from a Garlean sword and a ragged ring around his neck from an attempted hanging. On his left hip he has an odd tattoo that looks like it is some sort of unknown script.
- Lan is usually very businesslike while in public, and his mind is constantly working out strategies for both attack an defense to the point that one might consider him hyper vigilant. The saying, "Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet”, is pretty accurate when it comes to Lan, not because he wants to keep himself safe, but because others rely upon him to keep them safe. There are rare times usually in private that Lan will open up to those that are close to him an share personal thoughts, but otherwise he is a pretty walled off individual keeping his professional face on.
Some of these rumors are untrue or are greatly exaggerated. Please feel free to add your own rumors under PC!
♥J'maaira Tuhl - Jay is Lan's second in command and is one of two people that he considers to be as close to a sibling as he can get. Jay is his right arm and he is honest when he says that he could not do his job without her. The woman is one of the few that he will open up to.
♥Arrelaine Fashonti - Arry is the other sisterly figure for Lan. The sometimes impish woman keeps him on his toes, and despite the fact that he is often the target for her teasing he still has no problem being around her. Due to a past incident Lan feels that he owes Arrelaine a deep debt that he can never fully repay.
♥Val Nunh - A fellow seeker that despite a difference in manners earned Lan's respect very quickly. Val is a close friend and Lan genuinely enjoys the times that they go out to just drink and chat. Val's attempts at pairing Lan up with women usually causes the older seeker public embarrassment, but Lan knows that it is Val's way of doing something nice...most of the time....
●Faye Covington - Leader of the Harbingers of the Dawn and Lan's boss, Lady Covington is a woman that Lan has pledged his services too. Lan admires her willpower and the fact that Faye will stand against great adversity in order to see that hose under her are protected. Recent events have only strengthened Lan's admiration of the woman, but have also made him resolved to work harder on forging a bond of friendship with her.
♥Anstarra Silverain - A former Harbinger that quickly earned Lan's respect and friendship. The moment Lan saw Anstarra simply walking with her lance he knew that she would make a formidable opponent and steadfast ally. Since their initial meeting his respect has grown and he hopes to one day earn the chance to spar with her while she is armed with her spear. On more than one occasion Anstarra has taken the chance to flirt and tease Lan, leaving him flustered, but he usually can weather it with a smile...and a red face.
♥Xaitsuta Tsurugi - A secret mission behind enemy lines lead to Lan meeting this woman several cycles ago, a heavily rum flavored kiss drove them apart for a long time, and a mission to recover stolen artifacts brought them back together. Xaitsuta, or Xai is a raen woman that Lan knew back before most of Eorzea knew about the Au Ra race. Recently they were tasked with a job that easily showed the duo that they still could work as a team to tip the odds in their favor. Realizing that neither of them were getting any younger they agreed to start seeing more of each other, to see if those feelings from long long ago were still there. Lan has a deep respect for Xai and sees her spearmanship as something that complements his own fighting style perfectly. Now its time to see just what happens.
Qih Lyehga - Lan's now deceased mate, Qih started out as just a partner in adventuring and through the trials they faced together the two grew to be very close before becoming mates. The beautiful keeper woman was a bright spot in Lan's life and her untimely departure from it still weighs heavily on his heart. Adding to the pain is the fact that it was Lan himself, in a horrible case of mistaken identity, that wielded the dagger that killed her. No matter what happens from now on, he will always hold a special place in his heart for Qih.
