Aside from her noble upringing, she also learned the art of astromancy which came at a very early age, as her parents would send her daily to the Atheneum Arcaneum to study with the elders. They only saw fit that she learned to channel her Aether in a useful way, and being a trouble-maker as a child, it was a good activity to keep her mind busy from all her other studies which were dull to her. Odette enjoyed greatly reading the night sky and its constellations, and was an ace student. She mastered the skill of foresight and would learn to wield the magicks of the stars in her hands as she got to hold her very first star globe. She has never applied her skills in combat and has no experience outside of normal use as she specialized in healing magicks.

After consulting with the company leader of Aurora Eorzea, and encouragement from friends, she decided to assist in establishing an infirmary within Aurora Eorzea, seeing it as a good means to assist others instead of being a third wheel. She is currently working on achieving this goal.

At the behest of [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]], she was put in charge of tending to the wounded during missions as well as afterwards in the infirmary. She made it her priority, making certain that they were stocked up on all medical supplies and she even took pride in her newly found job, wanting to assist people as best as she could.

Upon joining Raven's Heart, the Au Ra was the very first person she met there and the two of them discovered that they had more in common than they had thought despite their historical differences.

Days went by and Odette had inspected all the books in the Aurora Eorzea regarding the realm. Boredom set in as well as the nervousness as she did not feel yet very confident in her new home and that was when she heard of a meet-up at the Sharlayan Institute in Gridania. Curious, she decided to pay it a visit, hoping that she might find more resources to educate herself on Eorzea and it's culture. Her friends helped her in teleporting there, leaving her to enjoy the evening on her own as she found the place in the Lavender Beds. She immediately got greeted by a rather obnoxious setting as some mad chocobo was set loose downstairs and was causing havoc. Doing her best to just avoid the ruckus, she settled herself by the bar where she engaged in conversation with an Au Ra and a fellow Ishgardian man. She was truly happy to meet one of her own, although his sharp tongue and witty replies left her rather astounded and speechless most of the time. It was intimidating on many levels and a bit unpleasant to her ears so she shifted away. [[Tiamos Loren]] then appeared and she greeted him warmly. He expressed interest in books regarding Aether manifestation and they both went downstairs to the library to begin their search but were cut off by [[Tiny Blue]]. While odd, the Lalafell was truly endearing and the three of them engaged in conversation, only interrupted as another Elezen made his appearance, apologizing for his intrusion. The group immediately dispersed a bit around the library to not block the way to the man, Odette meanwhile analyzing his appearance as it was rather clear to see that he appeared to be Ishgardian. She greeten him in Old Elezen and it immediately got his interest, also identifying her as kin and the two engaged in talk. He introduced himself as [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]], called Corvo by friends. She at first struggle to even use his nickname, but she did her utmost to correct herself despite her slip ups. [[Tiamos Loren]] was quick to assist the man in finding a book regarding astral plains and also regarding the beast tribes located in the Shroud, while Odette kept herself buy by researching books about Eorzea overall. She located one on Eorzean holidays and she went away a bit to have a peaceful read which got interrupted by [[Tiny Blue]] as he jumped onto her desk. A tad annoyed and sated with the book, she returned the book to it's original place when the Elezen man came back downstairs and offered his assistance to her, stating that he had been in Eorzea for over two years. She was elated and truly grateful and he did assist her with all her questions. He then posed her a question, asking if she fancied a walk outside under the stars and she gladly took the man's offer, the two leaving the library to talk more peacefully outside.

Enjoying her last outing to the library, Odette wanted to mingle some more, seeing it also as a good way to learn the customs and cultures on Eorzea. And so, she ventured to the Mists where there was a dinning event at a restaurant there, including some side entertainment. She found the place without any complications and once inside, she ran into an old face, [[Malrinn Nures]], a lady she had met two days prior at the Sharlayan Institute. The woman appeared quite happy to see her and she sat opposite her. Odette met her talking companion, a Miqo'te lady named [[Reyza Blackwater]] who had one of the most eloquent and beautiful voices and phrasing she had ever heard. The feeling seemed to be mutual as the Miqo'te also expressed curiosity about Odette's whereabouts as it was clear from a glance that she stood out from the crowd in both looks and mannerisms and Odette explained that she hailed from the Holy See of Ishgard, which definitely got the Miqo'te's interest. They talked a little bit about Ishgard and then the talk shifted to more casual matters. On stage, suddenly, a marriage was announced and everyone applauded and congratulated the couple which was to be wed; Odette day dreaming a bit, voicing that she found it romantic to be married. [[Malrinn Nures]] was quick to counter that, clearly being rather negative and she explained that she had broken off with her partner the same day. Odette immediately felt guilty and sat beside her, giving her a side hug, wanting to cheer her up at least a bit. The evening went by casually, and Odette met another Miqo'te by the name of [[Myr'sa Zemtarii]]. While they did not talk much at all, the moment he mentioned [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]] he got her attention and he asked her if she knew him, to which she nodded. He expressed immediate concern over this acquaintance, but she appeared adamant about her trust in the fellow Ishgardian, going as far as stating that she found him dashing and a true gentleman. It relieved the man luckily and the topic was dropped. One of the entertainer's at the establishment started seeking volunteers to go on stage but everyone rejected. [[Malrinn Nures]] joked that she could make a drinking competition, to which Odette commented that she had never drunk in her life. The Au Ra immediately ordered a bottle of red. A prayer was offered to Halone in preparation as the bottle was uncorked. The first few sips were agonizing, finding the flavour rather revolting and much too overpowering but as she kept going, it dulled her senses, taste buds included and she started to drink which amazing speed. The Au Ra had a most jolly time watching the Elezen down almost an entire bottle on her own in one go. Odette, unused to the effects, struggled to discern her surroundings but still did her best to remain a lady, deeming it best to return home. Getting up, the room started to spin and she struggled to make her way upstairs. [[Malrinn Nures]] and [[Myr'sa Zemtarii]] both assisted her, asking where she leaved. The Goblet was quite far and they did not want to risk teleportation with someone in her state, and so they decided to leave her in Lominsa at the Drowning Wench.

Odette woke up the next day, sick to the stomach and with no will to live, her very first hang over took over her body. She had no idea where she was or what had even happened, her last memory being talking with the girls back at the table in the Mist. After emptying the contents of her stomach multiple times, she did come across a note left by her friend, where she explained what had happened as well as where she was. She was most relieved to find that piece of information although the guilt was immense. She had no desire to drink to a stupor and it did taint her image. She vowed to never drink again.

Still dazed but intent on returning home, Odette teleported back to the Goblet however she mistook wards and ended up in the wrong one. Wandering lost, she came across a house with a familiar name 'Raven's Heart'. It immediately reminded her of [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]] and as she inspected the property, she found him in the front yard. He seemed shocked to see her there but pleased and the two exchanged a few pleasantries before heading inside. He asked her how come she found the place and she admitted it was pure coincidence. The man proceeded to explain the entire point of the Raven's Heart, what they did and what were their goals, including mentioning that they had ties to Ishgard which did rub her the wrong way a bit, concerned for her safety but she did not voice it. He then gave her some recruitment papers which shocked her but he kindly coerced her into it, requesting her assistance as a fellow Ishgardian and friend. Odette put some thought into the matter and she was definitely happy to find a purpose as it would help her in integrating with people in Eorzea as well as perhaps make a difference. She signed the papers but under the condition that her family name be left out if she were ever to be mentioned to any Ishgardians. He did not seem to mind and the deal was sealed. [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]] gave her a tour of the place and she then ran into [[Vildola Fyth]] who was looking for her. The man learned that the Viera was also an outsider and a fellow healer and so he also accepted her as Odette's help as they quickly decided that Odette would assist in the infirmary. Once he left, the two ladies got talking, expressing their shared concerned over Aurora Eorzea and the two agreed that it was not the place for them.
 +
 +
Odette returned to Aurora Eorzea and wrote them a letter, mostly addressed to [[K'alayah Xiaan]]. She thanked her and everyone else at the house for their kindness, but also expressing that she felt the need to move elsewhere, finding herself an ill fit in their current company. While in reality it was true, most of all she simply wanted to draw a clear line and stop the sexual advancements. She left them a box of Ishgardian bonbons and left, explaining that she was to leave together with [[Vildola Fyth]] but that they would remain in touch.

She returned to Raven's Heart with the Viera, looking forward to making herself useful so she went to the infirmary to inspect their stock and possibly add more to it. As her friend left, Odette also went out to stock up on a few medical supplies. Upon her return, she met many new faces, among them [[Arthain Garon]]. He convinced her to go introduce herself to the others and so she did, meeting a few other members of the place, among them she met [[Myr'sa Zemtarii]]. He did mention her drunkenness from the other day and she glared for once, quickly retreating back outside; far too ashamed of the event to want it mentioned. Outside she ran into [[Arthain Garon]] and the two got to know each other very well, finding they had a long in common. He seemed quite happy to see her not being scared of him, although the reason was unknown to her for such an assumption. She gladly observed him practicing his magicks when they got interrupted by [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]]. The Elezen greeted them and while talking mentioned the Au Ra's brother, which made the man storm off back inside. Odette was absolutely confused but the Elezen reassured her it was nothing she said. The two exchanged a few warm words before he took his leave and she rejoined the others inside. There, she ran again into the Au Ra man who apparently had broken his finger. Together with [[Edgar Wyndham]], a man she had also met back at the Sharlayan Library, they made their way with him to the infirmary to assist him. They all then proceeded to explore the house as it appeared some rooms were brand new. It was then that [[Edgar Wyndham]] suddenly proposed a history lesson to them out of nowhere but the Au Ra declined, retreating for the night, thus Odette gladly took it upon herself to listen. [[Myr'sa Zemtarii]] joined on the lesson about Thanalan history but Odette did not last long, feeling much too exhausted and so she retreated for the night.
 +
 +
The next morning, while browsing the library for books on Thanalan history, wanting to better herself especially after the lesson from the day before. As she found a book, two people also were residing in the library at the time; a man named [[Kaida Higashikaze]] and a petite Au Ra lady named [[Hayasu Daiuzu]]. The woman seemed to walk on pins and needles, seeming nervous all the time. Odette exchanged a few kind words with her although the man remained relatively silent until the Au Ra left them and Odette tried her best to engage in conversation with him. It took some time and patience to get the man talking but once he did, the conversation was one of the best she had ever had. He expressed interest in her wanting to learn more as well as her culture, them comparing each others' heights among other things and engaging in friendly banter. The talk took a turn as he asked her of her opinion of [[Corvinoix Heinsrich]]. She explained that she found him to be a good man, the true ideal of an Ishgardian nobleman. [[Kaida Higashikaze]] then asked if he had tried to bed her. Odette's mind exploded, immediately countering that and explaining then her reasons for being in Eorzea. He appeared understanding, but he did tease her a bit more, amused by her blush. It took her some time to settle down and she would talk about what she wanted in life, including romance. She then posed him a similar question. He did not mind her question nor her curiosity and he explained that he was not taught in romance nor courtship and that it all seemed daunting to him. Odette comforted him and they would even start to joke around, wondering who would be first to find the right person for them.

General

Odette Veaureaux, commonly referred to simply as "Odette", is a highborn noblewoman hailing from The Hole See of Ishgard.

With family roots stemming back millennia to form a very devoted household to the Theocracy, as well as being very traditional in it's beliefs, she lead a very secluded and controlled lifestyle. She followed her family in their wishes, having truly no choice in anything in her life. Years of being groomed to carry on the noble title with dignity while being the embodiment of a lady, she remained silent, unaware of the lands outside nor what freedom they offered. As her hand was given in marriage to a complete stranger from another noble house, she would slowly start to notice the cracks in her supposedly perfect lifestyle. As the doubts grew, so did her yearning to break away from her restrained lifestyle and family. It was then that a group of adventurers from Ul'dah assisted her in her escape.

In Ul'dah, with nowhere to go and confused by the completely new lands, she joined Aurora Eorzea, who immediately gave her a purpose in their establishment and took great care of her, as well as sheltering her from her family who, no doubt, was searching for her. Her cooperation did not last long as she met a fellow Ishgardian nobleman who immediately gave her a purpose in his company, wanting her to assist in the infirmary as well as healing the wounded at Raven's Heart.

Personality

Genteel, calm and serene, Odette is the pillar of composure, grace and beauty. She always has something nice to say to everyone and will do it with utmost class, style and dignity, displaying her strict noble upbringing at all times as it is not something she can hide. Highly educated and always polite, she always refers to others on a formal basis, unless said person requests otherwise. Odette is extremely friendly to anyone and usually won't ever avoid people, unless given good reason to. She is unable to use slang words or curse words; a thing which simply doesn't click with her due to her childhood. She does not mind if others use slang or shorter versions of words, but heavy curse words will always ruffle up her feathers and she shuns such individuals. She is always very eloquent and elegant with her words as well as her mannerisms; an absolute lady in every aspect. She struggles to be more casual as well as to adapt to normal Eorzean life but she is willing to push herself to be able to mingle better with others.

She isn't one for violence and shall avoid it at all costs, always pushing for peace via diplomacy. Very articulate and smooth-spoken, she is able to often calm down situations as long as they do not require brute force. If there is some uproar or ruckus in the vicinity, she is one to avoid it, preferring not to even be involved.

Despite all her advantages, she is very easy to be lied to, as she is very trusting of strangers due to a naive nature. She is not used to teasing, flirting or even jokes and they always send her for a spin, unknowing how to react to them. She often blushes in embarrassment and would try to diffuse the situation, but most often she would end up merely embarrassing herself even further. She has no experience at all with normal interactions with others and she struggles to understand at times the meanings behind peoples' actions. Fretted by the touch of a butterfly's wing, ready to faint at the sound of a beetle or the rattling of a window pane at night, she is a very skittish person, easily startled if approached out of nowhere.

Appearance

Odetteappearance.png

Odette is a woman of absolute beauty and exemplar refinement, which is impossible to go unnoticed.

She has gorgeous golden blond locks, semi-tied into a braid reaching to her mid-back; only at times pinned up into a tight bun. A pair of stunning and brilliant big icy-blue eyes. At simple glance anyone can say that she is a noblewoman, her fingers untouched by manual labour and her skin unexposed to the sun, white almost like porcelain or the freshest milk.. She takes great care of her looks, often spending hours by the mirror, making sure that she is presentable for the day. As most her kind, she is fairly tall, however among her own people she would not be considered the tallest, standing at a good average height among Elezen. A slender and delicate build, she is the embodiment of feminine charm and elegance.

Being a noblewoman, she tends to wear long garbs or gowns, often decorated intricately with embroidery or gemstones which came to the floor. While most nolewomen wore colourful fabrics, her favourite dress is a simply pale blue Ishgardian gown, void of any elaborateness but padded from the inside with fur to keep her warm. Not one for jewelry, she only wears simple crystal earrings, not wanting any bracelets or necklaces as she feels they get too much in the way. With some attire, she also wears a pair of sheer-white gloves, most commonly used when meeting people and not doing anything which would entail dirtying her hands. For footwear, she always wears her favourite pair of white, thigh-high Ishgardian boots. Odette was not one to wear headpieces but when cold, she would wear a pale blue cap with a small veil at the back which she would often keep at the front to shield her face.

Lately she started to try and dress much more casual and common, pairing her own attire with some more everyday pieces of clothing. Trousers started to make way into her wardrobe as well as simpler blouses and shirts. But no matter what she wore, her noble upbringing was always evident at first glance, if not even just by how much care she took of herself.

Occupation

Being a noble and the youngest of the family, Odette had no job or occupation, other than studying. She is very highly educated, especially in all sorts literature and teachings. Manners and etiquette were of prime importance, including how to curtsy and how to mix with the greatest nobles in Ishgard. Time would be spent learning how to dance and ride. Some housewifely duties such as preserving fruits, sewing, embroidery and household management were also taught, to prepare her for her duties as a married woman. Expecting her to run the household in the possibility of the absence of her husband to be, it was imperative that she be literate and have reasonable mathematical skills so that she might run these with efficiency and be able to check whether her household costings seemed reasonable. She was taught to read, write, tell stories, read romances and judge the merits of poetry. Her favourite were leisure romances and poems as well as holy scriptures. She often undertook singing lessons and was instructed in multiple musical instruments. Her spiritual education was critical being Ishgardian, and she would be extremely devout to Halone like most noble families.

Aside from her noble upringing, she also learned the art of astromancy which came at a very early age, as her parents would send her daily to the Atheneum Arcaneum to study with the elders. They only saw fit that she learned to channel her Aether in a useful way, and being a trouble-maker as a child, it was a good activity to keep her mind busy from all her other studies which were dull to her. Odette enjoyed greatly reading the night sky and its constellations, and was an ace student. She mastered the skill of foresight and would learn to wield the magicks of the stars in her hands as she got to hold her very first star globe. She has never applied her skills in combat and has no experience outside of normal use as she specialized in healing magicks. At the behest of Corvinoix Heinsrich, she was put in charge of tending to the wounded during missions as well as afterwards in the infirmary. She made it her priority, making certain that they were stocked up on all medical supplies and she even took pride in her newly found job, wanting to assist people as best as she could.

Combat

Odette has absolutely no experience in battle, only having been exposed once to a mission and she did not enjoy it one bit.

Being a noblewoman, she has no endurance or stamina to show for, nor strength for that matter. While not a fighter, she does offer a supportive role as a healer and helper to her companions, putting their safety and needs above her own at times. She utilizes her natural Duskwight assets of a very acute sense of hearing as well as her eyesight in the dark.

However, when put under extreme pressure or when someone is in danger, she can surprise all those around her, even herself, by showing incredible bravery, most likely fueled through adrenaline. On one occasion needing to reach a device at the bottom of a crate filled with poison oozing-worms; she took off her shirt and wrapped her arm in it to reach inside and obtain the device to complete the mission. Her devotion is unquestionable and even if she does not enjoy being on the front-lines, she is definitely an asset to any team.

Relationships

Family     Love     Platonic     Failed     Good     Neutral     Poor    

Family

Asoix Veaureaux (57)

The head of the family and father of Odette and Clauvort. A powerful man of high standing, not taking 'no' for an answer under no circumstances. He was never close to anyone in his family as he was more of a leader than a father or husband; distant and unattainable to anyone. Odette never saw him as more than the leader of their family and never had any relationship with the man.

Jucette Veaureaux (53)

Jucette is Odette's mother; a kind and genteel woman, much like her. Everyone would say that Odette was the exact copy of her mother, only younger. Odette was always a mother's girl and she adored spending time with her, until slowly noble life would catch up and duties called as well as her studies and the two drifted apart fairly quickly. Her mother wanted to see nothing more but to have Odette grow into a beautiful and distinguished woman, at the same time, ignoring the girl's happiness.

Clauvort Veaureaux (29)

Odette's older brother and future head of the Veaureaux family. He is head-strong and has all the characteristics to be a marvelous leader, however, he lacks open-mindedness and treats things as they are seen, which she sees as a great fault. He is confident, at times even arrogant about his position, but he was always protective of his baby sister and the two grew up together to bond very closely despite their different ideals. After the disappearance of Odette, he was the most worried and would search for her frantically no matter what.

Zeauraut Traideux (29)

Her fiancee and betrothed whom she never had even met or seen. She had no desire to meet the man and instead she left Ishgard as their first meeting was to be at the altar during their marriage ceremony. Even if he might have been a good man, she did not want to take the risk.


Love Interests

NONE


Friends

K'alayah Xiaan (??)

The main leader of Aurora Eorzea. K'alayah was always very caring and giving towards the Elezen, including making sure she was safe from her past during her stay at the residence. Odette was always confused by the Sunkeeper woman, as this one always expressed great interest in her, which ventured beyond mere friendship. Perplexed with the natures of flirting and even intimacy, Odette always struggled to keep up with her pace. The two women bonded very closely regardless, despite the flirts and advances. One could never ask for a better or more devoted friend and Odette treasured her above anyone else.

Tiamos Loren (28)

A most peculiar man that she ran into at the Aurora Eorzea bar. She quickly made out that he was also of some noble standing, which was noticeable by his attire as well as his manner of speech, and he also spoke Old Elezen which amazed and greatly pleased her. The two continued to run into each other and even took part in combat together, always supporting one another. Despite finding the man odd and very secretive, she does value his support and friendship as well as his help.

Vildola Fyth (??)

A Viera woman who also became a new member of Aurora Eorzea a few days after Odette joined. The two would converse together by the fire and they immediately noticed they had a lot in common, mostly the fact that both were foreigners in a completely new land. They joined forces, intent to learn as much as possible together and to adapt quickly to their new surroundings while at the same time becoming the closest of friends.

Malrinn Nures (??)

Odette met this Au Ra at the Sharlayan Institute in the Lavender Beds and the two ladies did get along but it wasn't until two days later where they really got to bond at another outing. Despite their differences, they found lots of common ground and their friendship cemented even further as Malrinn discovered that Odette had never drank in her life and the night took a horrible turn, needing to escort the Elezen back home. While the night ended on a bad note, the chemistry was clear and Odette is very happy to call the woman her friend.


Acquaintances

Taluh'to Lanbatal (??)

Friendly Moonkeeper fellow who works as a hunter and chef at the Aurora Eorzea. She met him upon her first visit to the establishment and while they haven't spoken much, he always seemed to be very polite and understanding. Eager to learn about all the different races, she would at times ask him about Miqo'te's and he was always glad to offer assistance and explanations. The two grew closer as he even told her of his past and she did appreciate it.

Taahir Al-Nazar (??)

A merchant hailing from the Thanalan desert as well as the Captain of the navy belonging to Aurora Eorzea. He appeared to quite enjoy her presence and the two bonded some more over further talks, including him asking her on a dinner date. Never having been on one, she agreed, however, she had no intentions of getting romantically involved with anyone at the time. Despite the nice talks, and he even suggested that she offered her services in the infirmary, she still remained kind and close to the man.

Corvinoix Heinsrich (44)

Fellow Ishgardian she met while attending a meet-up at The Sharlayan Institutional Team of Gridania. She quite enjoyed to converse with him perhaps even a little bit too much as he gladly offered her intel and advice on Eorzea. She was truly content to be able to meet another Elezen and she indulged in the talk as they browsed some books until he invite her outside for some stargazing. She obliged and as they went out, talking further about the realm as they got to know each other better.

Reyza Blackwater (??)

Meeting her at a small outing to the Mists at a restaurant, Odette was truly impressed by this Miqo'te, especially her eloquent and beautiful speech pattern. It quickly became apparent that the feeling was mutual and the two women got to talk quite a lot that night, genuinely enjoying each other's company as they both clearly stuck out from the crowds.

Kaida Higashikaze (??)

Foreigner much like herself but from the East, most likely a samurai. While he was very distant and quiet at first, he quickly warmed up to her presence ant the two enjoyed many talks together. Despite their differences, they had mutual respect for one another, remaining cordial and understanding but at the same time embracing those differences, complimenting each other.

Arthain Garon (??)

Upon joining Raven's Heart, the Au Ra was the very first person she met there and the two of them discovered that they had more in common than they had thought despite their historical differences. They were both healers and they looked forward to working alongside each other in the coming days. As well as reading books as that was a love they shared.


Enemies
