Appearance

Similarly to other Au Ra women, Nanama's stature and body mass is disproportionate. As she is 4 feet, 5 inches (or 53 inches), she is much shorter compared to the height of most short female Au Ra, being 4 feet, 7 inches. Her long tail comes close to touching the ground by only a foot, and is capable of only wrapping itself around one of the waists. Thanks to the hat she would don, as well as her attire, her skin stays a regular flesh tone, despite having made some of her travels on foot and under the sun's rays. Her eyes, including her hair, are blue, which is often kept to be in a short and clean fashion. She sometimes lets her hair grow more, but prefers to have it tied in some fashion.

Nanama is often seen wearing a black jacket that is long enough to pass her pelvic region. The jacket appears to share the resemblance of the company tabard, which are regularly worn by the OIC personnel affiliated with each of Eorzea's main city-states--Ul'dah, Gridania, and Limsa Lominsa. She can be seen wearing pairs of both black slacks and gaiters also, along with it. The accessory most prominent on Nanama's person, is the void blue flat cap she always wears. No matter the type of situation she is involved in, Nanama is always wearing it on her head. Occasionally, she will remove it to fix the top of her hair, should she feel it become untidy, but rarely does the headwear not have a presence atop her head. Throughout her investigations, she tends to wear other articles of clothing that are more suitable for fieldwork and/or instances for potential combat, and some would be accompanied by the cap.

History

Early Life/Pre-Calamity

For the majority of her life in Othard, Nanama had lived her childhood within the port town Kugane, that is on the island chain of Hingashi-- a Far Eastern nation with a strict isolationist policy, under the Shogunate. Being a Xaela, it is apparent that she was originally from a tribe that is, or had, resided at the Azim Steppe, along with the other tribes. Rumor has it, that Nanama managed to wander away from her respective tribe, as a baby, and thus was picked up by a resident of Kugane and nurtured. A male Roegadyn brought the defenseless, lost Xaela over to the islands and away from the dangers of Doma's wilds, raising her like his very own daughter.

Post-Calamity

After the start of the Calamity in the West in Eorzea, Nanama was still in Hingashi, under the care and guidance of her adoptive Roegadyn father. By the time the catastrophic event made it's place in Eorzean history, she was on her way to turning fourteen(14). As she grew more, and slowly learned more about Hingan customs, she began to question herself. Over time, Nanama had the impression that she didn't exactly belong in Kugane. This was never vocally expressed by Nanama herself, but her surrogate father ensured her, home is what people make of it and she has a place in it, as much as anyone else.

It was after turning into a girl of sixteen(16) summers, Nanama finds herself nursing the man, who had fallen ill. The sickness being so severe, conventional medicines and treatments barely showed any effect to help ease his state. As time went on over the course of many months, Nanama needed to take the initiative. With the concern for money, she looked into many jobs that could be available for someone of her age, and only found a few willing to work with her. The tasks in most of them consisted of standing behind a counter, to provide service to the town's inhabitants or foreigners, or simply cleaning up the shop. Opening up to people for the sake of looking after her Roegadyn caregiver was a challenge, as she found him the only person she could fully open up to. She rarely, if ever, socialized with any other individuals at or close to her age, as she felt her Xaela heritage would be seen as alien and make it difficult in forming a companionship with one or more kids. Despite doing everything in her power to make it a certainty her father gets better, his health began to continuously wane. He would now spend the rest of his time in bed, and when he does use the energy to move, it's to exercise and build up his strength, but these prove to be fruitless in making him better. While in bed, he would be read books by Nanama, and in turn he would share stories with her about his life and family, and have deep, meaningful exchanges with her. There was one aspect of his stories that trigger a spark of interest in her; his own father was once a detective, and he had a strong admiration for the man, as well as his occupation.

During one of their talks after a long day, her father gives her the truth of her origins. He states that she did, in fact, originate from a Xaela tribe, known as the Kha. The Kha are the tribe of Xaela, who live on the fringes of the Xaela lands, actively seeking contact with people not of Auri culture. They introduce the many aspects of the other cultures they discover into their own, and are more open-minded about the outside world, unlike most of the others. The tales of a missing child of the Kha, had been passed around for sometime, thus giving her surrogate the inkling feeling she is from said tribe. Although he considers the possibility of Nanama being one of them, he couldn't bring himself to return her to her rightful parents, should they still be alive. For years, he had been overcome with severe loneliness. Unlike Nanama, he did manage to accumulate a variety of friends in his past, but soon the relations slowly drifted apart, leaving him to be on his own. It wasn't until Nanama came into his life, that he finally found someone who could stay by his side again, and who could give him a brand new purpose--being a father. Even though Nanama now has knowledge of her true origins, as well as some closure, her love for her father outshines and exceeds her want to meet her tribe. Where you come from doesn't define you, but what you make of yourself, your legacy, does.

After many moons, and many heartfelt talks, and many loving goodnights, the man who brought her up ended up deceased the next morning. However, his death wasn't reported until the next day, as Nanama desired to be alone with his body and mourn as much as she wanted. Sooner or later, she was now on her own, and had her father's ashes kept. After turning seventeen(17), Nanama desired to honor her father, by donning his dad's detective cap and actively going out to become a investigator. Her very first case started within Kugane, and during it, she had trouble being taken seriously. Her childlike appearance did not help her to convince people of her serious intent, but soon she succeeded, rightfully earning her a reputation in her hometown. Later on, after Doma was liberated by the Resistance and the Warrior of Light, Nanama ventures away from home and travels overseas to the West, to see if she can use her inquisitiveness for the sole purpose of bringing justice in the name of her caretaker. Over time, she had solved other cases in Eorzea, and her reputation steadily grew.

In current times, Nanama is a woman of nineteen(19) summers and resides in a apartment with a office, within the Mist--the residential district centered in Lower La Noscea. She can be seen making rounds around Ul'dah for any signs of trouble and mischief, while keeping herself alert for any potential problems in need of an detective. She is currently tackles another case, and it is one with many trials that make her ponder herself as a person, including her future.

Personality

As a individual in her own right, Nanama Kha is an determined, inquisitive, kind-hearted, and selfless young woman who tends to mostly become guarded with her emotions. Her passion to inquire came as a result of her adoptive Roegadyn father's shared history involving his own father, who in life was a detective in the Far East. After her caregiver's passing, Nanama took it upon herself to follow in the footsteps of his parent. This honorable action gives her a sense of purpose, a way to pay tribute, and the desire to aid others. When investigating, she tries putting on a serious demeanor. Due to instances in the past when her younger appearance didn't allow her to be taken seriously, she wears orderly attire and adopts a professional attitude to let others know she is devoted.

Even though Nanama is serious about her occupation as a private investigator/inspector, she is more than capable showing her warm side. She tends to go out of her own way to offer her generosity and kindness to individuals, be it handing them a sum of gil or a gift, or being a person willing to give wanted attention. Her good-natured behavior can be seen as an admiration to others, to her own embarrassment.

A personal problem she currently struggles with, is not having enough strength to properly control or convey her true feelings to people who she grows some form of connection with. Due to her solitary life in Kugane and growing up with little to no interactions with those of or near her age, she has trouble emotionally opening up. People she associates with use this as a way to playfully tease, or flirt with her, which subjects Nanama to a vulnerable, flustered and distracted state. This issue had became more prominent during her current investigation to sabotage a slave operation around Eorzea, as her closeness with some allies reveal this embarrassed side. These new experiences of emotional attachment to people can hinder her from making good calls of judgement and potentially put her or others in danger.

In a desperate attempt to build her own confidence, Nanama had made multiple journeys out into the cold mountains of the Cortheas highlands and scour their landscapes, alone, for long amounts of time. She believed that these harsh, giant, and dangerous environments deserve to be treaded by a confident mind, and hoped she can be more confident herself. After spending a significant amount of time exposed to the cold climates, travelled far and wide and eliminated many creatures, including a griffin, her plan somewhat worked. Even though Nanama still has to learn to express herself, there will come a time when she will be seen as a slightly different individual in the eyes of her friends.

Combat

As her primary method of attacking and defense, Nanama has always used the decievingly small, yet strong, silver Makai Hand Mortar. Within the first year of her occupation as a inspector, and 3-4 months after arriving to Eorzea from Othard from the Far East, Nanama had picked up this weapon from a merchant in the Shroud during one of her past times in Gridania.

How a merchant managed to get a hold of this firearm, if it belonged to a previous owner, the owner's identity, and if they lost or intentionally got rid of it, are still a mystery up for debate. However, Nanama has used it with care throughtout her years, and hopes that maybe one day she could return the weapon to it's past owner, who was possibly a machinist.

Nanama doesn't make it a regular habit of ever using it, unless of course she feels that her or the safety of others are in danger. She never has truly used the Makai Hand Mortar to neutralize a living person, and one time during her current investigation, when she opted to take it out, she was unable to fire a shot--a idea that if she ever shot first and potentially killed the opponent, she, as a investigator, would be a murderer.

Besides the handgun, she also has a variety of autoturrets at her disposal, handed over to her by the Machinists Guild in Ishgard. Plus, she had taken the liberty of learning hand-to-hand combat and now has skills in the martial arts. Despite not having anyone as a teacher, and thus self taught herself through reading, experimentation, and rigorous training, she had eventually built up skills that are almost on equal level to that of the regular monk. These skills prove useful, should the Makai Hand Mortar become a unavailable option. To keep herself in shape and her martial arts up to par, she tries exercising and training on occasions.

Nanama soon focuses her attention on weilding a katana, learning about arcanima in the Arcanist's Guild, and taking lessons from Perceval on using a bow and arrow. These give her more room to grow and become versatile. While she has much to learn in order to develop her skills with the bow, blade, and the art of summoning, Nanama is determined to make herself adequate.

Affiliations

Mameshiba/Mame: The mameshiba is a newborn miniature Far Eastern canine that Nanama had came across, during her first few months as a budding detective in Eorzea. The pup had became a wanderer around the Shroud, but eventually took to following Nanama's every lead through most of her cases. The origin of "Mame" is still unknown to her, however, she had grown fond of the canine over the course of her time in Eorzea. She decided to keep it around as her companion.

"I always wondered what that dog was thinking, following me around Eorzea all this time. He might have had a previous owner and was just alone, like me--wandering and seeking a purpose. Well, I'm happy he's still with me. He's adorable, and helps me smile through these trying times..." -Nanama's thoughts on the mameshiba

Caroline Vesper: A seventeen year old midlander who is a experienced summoner, and whom Nanama met near the end of her second year in Eorzea. She is a young adventurer who has a inferiority complex, on top of being sarcastic and cynical towards others she is not close to.

Nanama met Caroline in Limsa Lominsa, when the detective used to occupy that city- state more frequently in the past. A grimoire of Caroline's was stolen by thieves, but then escalated into a run-in with the Kobold beast tribe. After aiding Caroline, both her and Nanama were on good terms, even though the summoner's cynical outlook on Eorzea as a whole perturbed Nanama.

They rarely see one another, but they still keep contact with each other for small talk.

"I can vividly remember what happened like it occured recently... The girl and I tracked down those thieves in Outer La Noscea, and of course the Kobold made things more harder... Honestly, I was really nervous to the point of losing my aim with my gun, but the outcome was in our favor. For someone younger than me, I was impressed by her demonstration with the carbuncle and knowledge on summoning. I'm glad I managed to help her, however, her attitude towards her homeland was... concerning. I wonder what she gets up to..." -Nanama's thoughts on Caroline

To'zi Dzoli: To'zi is a skittish, exhausted, and timid Xaela scholar, who Nanama met within the first few days of being in Ul'dah for the first time. They don't exactly see each other much, but the detective views her as a good friend.

"To'zi was one of the few good people I met when I first went to Ul'dah finally, after a couple of years. I haven't seen her for almost several months. The last thing we talked about was me giving her assistance with a expedition in this 'Palace of the Dead' in the Shroud, alongside Vanitas. I hope she's been okay..."-Nanama's thoughts on To'zi

Ganon Shosen: A pacifistic male Raen who traveled to Eorzea as an envoy of Othard, and a member of Kusakari Industries--a company he joined after assisting in the Doman Liberation. Nanama met him during her first time in Ul'dah, when she volunteered to look into a investigation involving a runaway Miqo'te, Marolyn Quinn. They both accepted the job, and thus became partners. Over time, as her investigation progressed, she found herself to be in potential danger, and sought Ganon for help. For a while, she used his company's abode as a safehouse, until she eventually got her own office. Nanama feels to be close to Ganon, and admires his generosity. On the surface, she calls him 'friend' or 'partner', but underneath, she looks at him as a big brother, or even a father figure.

"I have nothing but good things about Ganon--generous, calm, hard-working, and a good cook. Me and him got together for looking into Nikolas' "story" about Marolyn being kidnapped. He didn't really stick around long for the case, because of complications... I try to see him and his company as much as I can, but there's always something going on... I remember we opened up a small soup kitchen in Pearl Lane, around the time of the Starlight Celebration. He also tried getting me to open up some more, and express myself. He's a good man, and... I-I think he can be a good dad. I still appreciate the hospitality he and his wife gave me many months back. I also once thought of maybe... joining Kusakari Industries, and be their own investigator. However, a private one seemed more preferable to me at the time. Ganon likely would've welcomed me. I want to notify him when the case is over and Nikolas is dealt with. He'll be happy to hear I pulled through til the end."-Nanama's thoughts on Ganon.

Vanitas Law: Vanitas is a male Hyur who resides in Ishgard, as well as a dragoon who is a general. Both Nanama and Vanitas met in Ul'dah's Quicksand, while she was looking into her case with Ganon. Thanks to him being a lookout, Marolyn was found and Nanama's case had progressed, and eventually, he had taken over Ganon's place as her partner during his absences. Over time, Vanitas had developed feelings for her, and soon asked to become his girlfriend. Wanting to experience having a relationship and fulfill her curiosity, she accepted. While being in a relationship with him, Nanama had grown to care more for him, regarding his past and his naive nature. She tended to become timid and vulnerable whenever Vanitas would try and display affection in public, or otherwise. However, his willingness to protect her, regardless of her combat capabilities, made her feel as though he was overprotective. After multiple threats towards allies during plans to stop a slave operation in Eorzea, they eventually fell apart. Nanama is thankful to Vanitas for having her experience moments of love, affection, and devotion for the first time, but she felt as though she was not ready to commit to a relationship yet--a result of her passion for investigations. The two hadn't talked to one another for few months, but got around to it. The two still remain on good terms as friends.

"U-Um... Vanitas and I have had some... history. We've d-dated, but it didn't exactly last long--only for up to a month and a half... We met in the Quicksand and he offered to help me with looking for Marolyn while Ganon was off doing something else. If it wasn't for him, I'd still be misled by Nikolas' "story" of his "kidnapped" daughter and fighting on the wrong side. It... was mostly my fault 'us' had to end. My inexperience with relationships, love, and affection had a hand in separating us. If I wasn't acting meek to Perceval's teasing, we'd still be together longer, but I still wouldn't have loved him as much as he did me... After that, I hadn't seen him in months--not since Perceval ran off to Coerthas and was exorcised by Sindorel in my office. There was a feeling in me, that he primarily stuck around because of me, and not for the sake of the slaves in the process of being sold. I tried dismissing it as best I could... We did eventually talk to each other again, while seeing different people. I hope he's happy now and in the future, than when he was with me."-Nanama's thoughts on Vanitas

Marolyn Quinn: Marolyn is a Miqo'te Keeper, who is the adoptive daughter of Nikolas Quinn(aka Mr. Provolone), the man who gave the offer of looking for her to Nanama and Ganon. She was able to meet Nanama, by Vanitas noting the inspector of her whereabouts in the streets of Ul'dah. After a misunderstanding about the case, Nanama and Marolyn become allies. While working with Marolyn to oppose her father's business, Nanama doesn't feel as close to her as she does with the others within their group. They work together, however shared words between them are few and far between. Her stance on Marolyn is between a friend, and a acquaintance.

"I think Marolyn is a good person to have in the group--someone who could help balance the down-to-business and serious attitude some of the others tend to display. It's unfortunate she's wrapped up in this whole ordeal because of her father. We don't really talk much to one another during or outside briefings or missions. We'd have one conversation with each other if we're lucky... I also wonder about her true feelings about all of this. I'd like for us to know each other a bit more, before we don't see each other ever again... or, at least not often."-Nanama's thoughts on Marolyn

Lynette Sakumi: A malicious Xaela who is the caretaker of Marolyn, and seeks to take down her father, with Nanama's assistance. Nanama met her right after having located Marolyn in Ul'dah. Her barbed personality had made the inspector keep her distance somewhat, but soon she eventually got used to it. As time went, Nanama considered Lyn as a friend, however complications during the case for Nikolas Quinn harmed their acquaintanceship.

"...Lyn and I hadn't really been on good standing in the past couple of months... It's so bad, I become severely depressed just from the thought of it. I've considered her as a friend, and someone else I can try opening up to more. The blame was on me for damaging our relationship, by simply knowing Serenity, and her almost jeopardizing our mission in Southern Thanalan. I didn't tell Seren to show up, nor knew she was going to stumble on us... The way Lyn purposefully shoulder checked me after she arrived was... actually heart-breaking and embarrassing, to say the least. I also deserved her paying no mind to me when I keeled over from my gun wound from Mangle. I was still recovering at the time... In fact, I don't remember anyone except Perc seeing if I was okay... He ended up bringing me to his apartment, and I just had enough and cried. it was probably the hardest I ever shed tears. Sometime ago, Lyn did apologize at the end of Darius' funeral, and I accepted, but the pain was... still there. I've told myself I shouldn't get too attached to the others again, and not see them as friends, but allies towards a common goal. We'll all go our separate ways, and leave it all behind..."-Nanama's thoughts on Lynette

Lederic Haragin: Lederic is a grim and straightforward Xaela of the Haragin tribe, who's a 'hunter for hire' working with Lynette, Marolyn, and the rest of their group to oppose Nikolas Quinn. Nanama meets him after finding Marolyn, thanks to Vanitas, and meeting Lynette. Their introductions were tense, with Lederic demanding knowledge of Nanama's allegiance, thinking she was sent by Nikolas Quinn to find Marolyn and exterminate Lynette. After the situation's given an explanation to Nanama, she then joins his group. Nanama's feelings on Lederic are conflicted. Despite Lederic's serious, no-nonsense attitude towards everyone he associates with, as well as his somewhat disregard for her integrity, mental health and desire for truth and justice, she sees him as a competent leader. To her, he is a flawed individual plagued by demons and in need of help. She tries assuring him that she, along with their allies, are his friends, but attempts of getting him to open up are met with dismissals. She hoped to help him more, once their current business is resolved, but has given up on the idea.

"Lederic is... difficult to get a read on at times. The contributing factors would be that I rarely ever see the man without that blasted helmet on his head, including not having many one-on-one conversations, which I like. Honestly, I can't help but to feel sorry for him... He's made sacrifices to see to it that Provolone can no longer pollute Eorzea with his "business". I was there at Darius' funeral. They were both colleagues... I try not bringing it up to him. Lederic's a competent leader for our operation, even though I sometimes disagree with his method of handling things..."Nanama's thoughts on Lederic

Mikha Namaliyo: Mikha is a calm Miqo'te Seeker, who Nanama met, after running into Lederic, Lynette, and Marolyn. During and after their first introductions, Nanama felt slightly untrusting of her, but eventually her views on her change. Currently, she's more open around the Miqo'te and admires her as the older sister she never had.

"At first, when I joined Lederic's group, I had a inclining feeling that Mikha might have been suspicious of me, and developing any kind of bond with her was going to be a challenge. I think it got shaky when she met up with Nikolas and Perrito while I was talking with them. That time, I switched focus on getting closer to the man to extract any information pertaining to his so-called business. Something, Lederic has been doing far longer than me. Unfortunately, we were accidentally called out by her, and thus our cover was blown... I remember still being on the fence about her after that. I-I never thought we'd get at close as we are now. Sisters. It's... embarrassing to think about. I don't know if I was really the only child. I never met my real parents, and don't know about their current whereabouts, or if they are dead... Being the only child in my life, then being connected to someone so much that you can consider them as family--a sister--is... I can't find a word to describe it. But, with what we've been dealing with, our relationship's true potential hasn't felt like it's been reached. There's her involvement with that pirate crew she was with, including her past with Perceval... It would take a miracle for the two to finally make amends properly... That'll take a long time, I'm afraid."-Nanama's thoughts on Mikha

Perceval Greystone: A Elezen with a silver tongue and mellifluous voice, who's associated with Lederic. Nanama first met Perceval in Ul'dah, along with Mikha. Her opinion on Perceval as a mere acquaintance, soon evolved into a budding companionship. After becoming single again, and doing her best to solve problems of his multiple times, she becomes emotionally close with him, and soon enamoured by and for him. In the past, he is original name was Precis Transvaal, but experiences during the Provolone case and history with his ex-lover led him to choose a different one, in a attempt to leave the past behind and become a new person.

"Perceval... u-uh... If I was told by someone, I was going to end up in a l-loving relationship with him, I'd call it absurd... In all honesty, at the start of my case on Provolone, I didn't really think much of him. I was actually distant towards Perc at the start. His Ishgardian was intimidating, that I was afraid our moments of communication would be scarce. He was also close to Mikha at the beginning from what I remember. It was when we all planned to capture Javier Bergeron, that I did slowly get used to him. I eventually tried opening up to him a little more, around the time Kusakari Industries had their open house party. He was dealing with... alot back then. He called me on the pearl while I was attending, and sounded like he wasn't himself... I had to leave earlier than intended to check on him in his apartment, and the overwrought state he was in in front of that fireplace was sad seeing. I stuck with him until Mikha and... some other guy showed up. It was near that time, I had the feeling most of the people in our own operation were almost too apathetic for my tastes... I was beginning to understand why Ganon dropped the case much earlier than I have. Lederic snapping Javier's neck was the straw that broke the dhalmel's back. When Mikha came to me saying Perc went missing, I was the one to suggest a search party should be formed. Either it was me, or the others were almost reluctant to go out looking for him. Like, whatever he was dealing with, wasn't their concern. It was, and we're suppose to work together. During the search, Vanitas and I were looking around Ishgard itself, and he kept trying to nail it in that Lederic and the rest weren't going to look for Perceval. I kept brushing it off. I didn't want to hear any of it... Thankfully, they did find him. However, it was probably for the reason of not losing another asset they agreed to look, and not because they had any deep connection with the man... After, Perc's problem was sorted out, and Vanitas and I broke up, we... got more closer. It went from being best friends to... having something there, to... now. I-I got to truly experience what love is... But, I'm afraid of this one not lasting..."-Nanama's thoughts on Perceval

Sindorel Felclar: Sindorel is a Hyur who centers himself in Ul'dah, and holds the profession of a academic researcher, as well as a mage. Nanama's first introduction to Sindorel happened, at the beginning of an investigation led by Lederic, that was connected to her current case. Nanama has'nt had many personal interactions with Sindorel, but the multiple occurrences when they work with each other in their group makes her see him as somewhat apathetic, but caring when he wants to be. To her, he's a friend and a invaluable ally.

"Hm... Sindorel was a quite peculiar man. I was a bit iffy about him when we met. But, I do soon learn he is someone that means we. He just chooses to not display it as much, similar to the others. Though, his aura felt a little more welcoming. He first helped the group with looking into a wagon transporting stolen milk. It was found in Vesper Bay, and... I'll just say the milk wasn't really qualified for consumption due to what else was in that wagon... Sindorel also helped out with looking for Perceval in Coerthas, and even managed to successfully exorcise him, in my office... I think he's more easier to latch onto besides Perc. I'm not sure what he plans to do once Nikolas is gone, but I'll give him my best wishes."-Nanama's thoughts on Sindorel

M'leo Tia: M'leo is a Miqo'te Seeker, who years ago was a detective, but stopped around the time Nanama began her journey as a inspector in Othard, in the Far East. She met M'leo while attempting to uncover the location of a important clue in Central Thanalan, relating to her current investigation. Not knowing who he was, nor his relation to Mikha, she showed distrust for him as he questioned her about her intentions; believing her to be associated with a group of thieves. Later on in their second meeting, the misunderstanding is cleared and they began working together under Lederic's lead. After a botched attempted rescue, Nanama never saw him again, and unaware of his whereabouts. Part of her mind hinged on M'leo being deceased, but mostly has had hope he is still alive.

Despite being aware of M'leo's history with Mikha, not much is known to her about him. She currently wishes to form a closer bond with him, whenever they see eachother.

"It's been a while since I've seen M'leo. Last time, I was actually happy to see he was okay. All this time, I was afraid he met his end at the hands of the Ebon crew, even when Mikha tried assuring me nothing happened to him. I would like to know what he's been doing all this time."-Nanama's thoughts on M'leo

Lady Beralda: Lady Beralda, or Beralda of the Valkyries, is a fiery winged warrior closely associated with Precis. She deems to have saved the Elezen in a previous life, and despite having no recollection of his past, believes it. Nanama met Beralda in the Quicksand when she tried defusing a intense argument between her and another patron.

Nanama is fond of Beralda, but still currently feels guilt over accidentally taking Precis' affection away from the warrior woman. They don't often see one ais nother, however, Nanama remains on good terms with her.

"Somehow, I feel close to Beralda, despite us not seeing each other very much. Maybe, once a month if we're lucky. She and Perc had something in past, and I once felt sorry about them not getting together. This was when me and him weren't... really a thing. She once told us that her time on Hydaelyn is limited, and within in several months, she may leave us all... I hope I stick around long enough to see a memorial. I'm going to miss her..."-Nanama's thoughts on Lady Beralda

Ardent Tempest: Ardent is a giant, heavily armored Roegadyn who is usually affiliated with Precis as his 'brother'. Nanama met Ardent when she was in trouble after a attempted rescue of Mikha, which ultimately failed and a misunderstanding. She trusts Precis on Ardent's good intentions and welcomes him as a ally. Due to the man's lumbering frame and her small figure, she can't help but feel like a child in his presence, including being reminded of her late adoptive father, who ironically was a Roegadyn too.

"Ardent's one those people I just don't see much nowadays, and it is unfortunate. I'm hoping nothing has happened... Perceval said he hasn't seen Ardent in a long time as well, and they' re close if I remember. The man must be incredibly busy--we all are. Perhaps he will show back up sooner or later. It would be a pleasure to catch up up with him, and I'm sure Perc would be happier than he is now."-Nanama's thoughts on Ardent

The Gorgon Family: A family that is renowned within the Garlean Empire in Garlemald. Although they are quite large, Nanama has consistently interacted with Drayconivous Malory Gorgon, a pure-bred Garlean, and his two daughters, Serenity and Mangle. Nanama's association with the Gorgon family began when she was socializing with another member of the Kha tribe, Jakha, during one of her earlier patrols around Ul'dah. It was Serenity who was introduced to the detective by Jakha, and thus started their chemistry. Nanama's opinion of the Garlean family is, in of itself, a mixed bag. While she does openly associate herself with them, as well as care about some of them, there have been events which make her question their intentions as well as their morality.

Nanama primarily affiliates herself with Serenity Gorgon--the half-bred Xaela daughter of Drayconivous, and their relationship is the backbone and pillar that could potentially make or break Nanama's standing with the Gorgons. She looks to Serenity for seeming to be the most reasonable and morally sound, as opposed to her half-sister Mangle. While there are moments where Serenity makes situations more difficult for Nanama and place wedges in her relationships with other characters due to her naive and rude nature, she continues to take her as a friend and attempts to rationalize her behavior. There's also the detail of Serenity having harbored romantic feelings for Nanama since they met. Something people slowly began to find out, the more they were around one another. While Nanama herself is aware of the feelings, and to some extent feel the same way, she tried to neither reject her them to not hurt her emotionally, or reciprocate them bevause of her relationship with Perceval. Eventually, she does tell her that her love for Perceval outweighs her love for her and that they should remain as friends. Serenity attempts to abide by Nanama's wishes, despite teasing and flirting for the sake of a reaction. Since her and her family's name is somewhat reviled to the public, Nanama has indeed felt pity and chose to be one of the few that the family could turn to for support, at her own expense.

Next, Nanama's relationship with Mangle Gorgon--Drayconivous' half-bred Miqo'te daughter--tends to be antagonistic and tense. While Nanama does acknowledge Mangle as Serenity's sister, her occupation as a detective keeps her from not letting the heinous acts she commit go unnoticed. To Nanama: Mangle displays sociopathic tendencies with a slight lack of remorse, is unpredictable, and a potential danger to herself, Serenity, and everyone around her. Her view on Mangle had came as a result of instances that either alarmed her, or had placed her and others in mortal danger. Examples include; making light of random individual' s deaths over trivial things, nearly killing Nanama with gunshots to prevent being apprehended by her for theft, and detonating a autoturret in Kugane, which almost killed her again, however, Perceval's presence and shielding of Nanama ensured her safety. Despite these incidents, Nanama still insist on giving Mangle chances to change her ways, but her patience for the Miqo'te wanes.

"Complicated.... that is how I describe my view on the Gorgon family as a whole. I empathize with the many struggles and prejudice they've. endured in Eorzea, more specifically Ul'dah. I do admire they had too my and everyone else's suggestion on defecting from the Empire. I don't want to see the day when the infrastructure of it collapses thanks to the Alliance and the Warrior of Light, and the Gorgons are no more.  But, there have been times in the past when my empathy for them and my close relationship with Serenity has done more harm than good for me. Part of it is my fault, and the rest stems on me and Serenity being seen around each other often. Someone  once accused me of being a Garlean sympathizer working with them... Then, there's the effect it has on me and Perceval's relationship. What happened between us was all on me. People can call it brainwashing, but I know what I did and didn't use the power I had to stop it before there was no going. Perc is not fond of her. Sometimes I get the feeling he actually hayes her, but had tolerated her presence for my sake. He knows we were close... I had to cut ties with Serenity. I didn't want it to come to it, but I want to stay with Perc, and I don't want Serenity to be hated anymore. However, she's persistant and still wants to be around me after I dueled her... I'll try dealing with whatever comes next." -Nanama's thoughts on the Gorgons

Moritoto Tanbolo: A Lalafell who is a veteran of the Sultansworn—the personal guard of the sultan, Nanamo Ul Namo—in Ul'dah. Nanama had met Moritoto in the Quicksand after she had finsished one of her many patrols in the city for trouble. Their relationship is more of allies cooperating to help bring justice, as well as friends. She admires Moritoto for his calm and relaxed attitude and his dedication to his occupation. Nanama tends to be vulnerable to the man's compliments and flirting, such as being referred to as 'doll', and does her best to not show embarrassment. She also sees the Lalafell as someone capable of helping relieve her mind of the stress and hardships faced as a detective, by handing occasional advice and support, to which she deeply appreciates.

Enemies/Disaffiliations

Nikolas Quinn: Nikolas (also going by 'Mr. Provolone') is a entrepreneur and cheese connoisseur who is centered in Ul'dah, along with his right-hand Perrito. He is the adoptive father of Marolyn Quinn. Nanama met the old man during her first week in Ul'dah, when she overheard him informing Ganon Shosen about his missing daughter. She offered her help to search for Marolyn and apprehend her caretaker Lynette, but eventually found out after meeting Lederic that Nikolas is in charge of a large slave operation spanning all across Eorzea, and the tale of Marolyn being violently taken away by Lyn was a lie.

Currently, Nanama continues to oppose and disrupt Nikolas' business, while cooperating with Lederic's group. She wishes for him to be finally captured and to serve a sentence for the act of slavery. Her case is close to ending, with him hiding out somewhere in Coerthas, in an unknown location and the group tracking down clues of his exact location.

"Wherever Nikolas is hiding, we will find him. There's no escaping punishment. Once he's finally dealt with, I can spread Father's ashes, and be at peace..." -Nanama's thoughts on Nikolas

Perrito Carrito: A dark-skinned Lalafell as Nikolas Quinn's assistant and a trafficker of the slaves in Thanalan.

"Him and Nikolas must be stopped, and they'll both get what's coming to them..." -Nanama's thoughts on Perrito

Javier Bergeron: Javier was a Duskwight Elezen who managed slaves within the Shroud, and was one of several accomplices to Nikolas Quinn. As he dealt with his part in the slave operation that takes place across Eorzea, he was both sociopathic and masochistic. Javier was captured by Nanama's group in the Central Shroud, where he was taken in to be interrogated for information on the location of the encampments holding slaves.

Javier Bergeron met his demise at the hands of Lederic by getting his neck forcefully snapped, to Nanama's disgust, after questioning him was deemed a success. Instead of taking the law into their own hands, Nanama had wished Javier was put in jail and punished for his inhumane acts.

"The man sickened me... I would have rather seen him spending time in a cell, than dying unpunished. Lederic just-... No. Javier was a monster--Eorzea's better off without him. -Nanama's thoughts on Javier

Ebon Syndicate: A company of pirates that Mikha Namaliyo is a member of. Nanama's first association with the group was when she was introduced to one of the higher-ups, Valacor, by Mikha. However, her standing with the pirates soured due to a misunderstanding that could have ultimately resulted in her death, as well as M'leo's. M'leo, a retired detective, intended to infiltrate the pirate's base for information relating to Mikha, whom he had ties with in the past. Despite the danger, Nanama went with him and they were both outnumbered, caught and interrogated. She deemed her bad judgement call and emotional attachment to Mikha akin to a sister, were partially to blame. Nanama's standing with the Syndicate got worse when her association with Precis was known, whom the pirates loathe, for problems that arised before he left them.

Currently, Nanama herself doesn't wish to have anything to do with them. She once offered to help the pirates with rescuing one of their members, but her assistance was rejected. Her negative feelings for them is more out of fear, than hate.

Secrets

-On very rare occasions, Nanama would think out loud and talk to herself, when confronted with a issue that warrants a amount of time dedicated to hard-thinking and problem solving. She is more prone to do it whenever alone, and not within the proximity of individuals whose presence she acknowledges.

-Despite her body looking to be very slim underneath her attire, Nanama's physique is toned and a little curvy. In reality, her breasts are rather big; a size of 97 cm(D). The black jacket and whisperfine coat she wears helps to avoid her receiving unwanted attention by making the chest appear more flat. She is vulnerable to being flustered, should one ask her about her real size...

-Nanama's horns and tail are sensitive to the touch. She'll get embarrassed if they're gently grabbed; more so, if caressed.

-Despite Nanama being mainly heterosexual, she finds the thought of two partners of the opposing orientation intimate with one another to be cute. Especially, if they are both men. It is vague whether or not she may be into other women.

-When meeting a friendly Lalafell, she sometimes has the thought of cuddling them.

-Even though Nanama primarily wears the color blue on many occasions, her favorite color is pink. She uses blue clothing to go with her treasured hat.
