Shion Bellveil is a Hyur from the city of Leá Monde in Dalmasca.

History

Shion comes from Leá Monde in the kingdom of Dalmasca, now the capital of Dalmasca Inferior under Garlemald occupation. Her mother Kallen died when Shion was young. When Dalmasca was conquered a few years before Shion was born, her father Evien was an up-and-coming genius in the field of aetherobiology and so was promptly taken in to the Garlean army's science division, and moreover he was eager to do so as Garlemald's resources provided excellent funding and resources for his research. He climbed the ranks quickly for a non-Garlean,

Growing up hearing the tales of the Zodiac Braves, especially Saint Ajora and King Delita, Shion admired the heroes they were. As the daughter of the eventual Evien mal Bellveil Shion lived a comfortable life in imperial-occupied Leá Monde despite not being a Garlean. It was not an extravagant lifestyle, but she could safely play in the streets, attend a school, and always had food on the table. But as she also befriended the lower levels of Dalmascan society, such as her dearest friend, the Viera boy Rósar Arda, and sympathized with their plight. That being said, a fair many also hated her for being the daughter of a "traitor."

One day in the markets, Shion found and purchased a peculiar crystal that had found its way to the stalls from Eorzea. In time she would learn that it was an Ala Mhigan treasure red mage's soul crystal, and that the merchants who had traded it from Ul'dah to Radz-at-Han to Dalmasca hadn't known what it was they were handling. The stories she read about red mages resonated her through both the tales of chivalry that permeated ancient Ivalician tales, as well as their standing against the oppression in Ala Mhigo, given Dalmasca's suffering under Garlemald's thumb. Her father remains in the imperial forces to this day.

When the people of Dalmasca attempted to liberate their capital Rabanastre and the Garleans destroyed it in response, Shion saw the despair that swept the kingdom. Deciding there was not much for her left in Dalmasca, Shion fled with the goal of becoming a hero, someone who could be a beacon of hope for others. She believed that the key to achieving the power to do that may be in Eorzea with its bounties of aether and history of magicks, and so she left the empire in secret via a Radz-at-Han trading vessel to set up shop in Limsa Lominsa. Quickly coming into debt when she didn't realize the cost of such a move, Shion was bailed out by an Elezen privateer named Atroix Ceanois, who helped her land a job in Limsa Lominsa making deliveries and let her live in his house until she could afford an apartment. Now she researches the War of the Magi, eikons, and the ways of magick to become a better hero like a red mage should be.

Character

Appearance

Shion's clothing gives away her Dalmascan origin, with bright colors and fanciful fabric. A thin silver charm bracelet hangs on Shion's left wrist, each charm on it a memento of family and friends. Her figure shows a lifetime of dancing and playing sports in the city streets. She's left-handed.

Shion's mother named her after the shion, a flower which in Hingashi's art of flower arrangement means "I won't forget you." Her mother was not Hingan herself, but learned flower arranging from a Hingan merchant who visited Dalmasca in her youth.

Personality

Shion is a warm, friendly person, but she is lacks confidence in herself and tends to get offended or angry easily even if that wasn't your intent. Shion simply adores children and strives to be a "cool big sister" to any she befriends.

Shion's shelves are filled with books of magic, history, and works of fiction, especially the stories of the Zodiac Braves. Of particular personal importance to Shion is the tale of Saint Ajora Glabados, whom she sees as her hero. Over the course of her time in Eorzea she has also come to find a fascination with the Fifth Astral Era. When she has free time and the weather permits it, she is often found reading outdoors, or perhaps drawing, which is another hobby of hers.

Though many of the holy sites of Dalmasca's religion, the Light of Kiltia, were destroyed by Garlemald, it survives in its people. Shion has been a faithful of Faram the Father her whole life, and the need to keep it secret from the Garleans has perhaps made her even more devout.

Seeing as she spent her entire life under Garlean rule she uses Garlean terms for some Eorzean concepts, such as "eikon" instead of "primal". And as a Dalmascan, she refers to aether as "Mist".

Combat

Shion is self-taught as a red mage, learning to wield dueling blades and magic entirely from books. She tends to go into melee range more than other red mages right, and a favorite technique of hers is creating crystal blades in the air to launch at opponents.
