Shion Bellveil is a Midlander Hyur from the trade city of Radz-at-Han in the Near East.

History

Shion comes from Radz-at-Han on the island of Thavnair, and her mother is Thavnairian, but her father, Evien Bellveil, is actually from the kingdom of Dalmasca. A longtime alchemist, he traveled to Radz-at-Han to truly delve into the art there and met Shion's mother Kallen when he did. Shion grew up playing in the sun-lit streets and learning dancing from her entertainer mother,

Sadly, Shion's mother came down with an illness that even the legendary Hannish alchemists could not cure and passed away when Shion was still young. Her father had researched the Philosopher's Stone to try and save Kallen, even performing alchemical experiments on his own daughter, but when his wife finally died he grew cold, distant, and turned toward the drink. Shion's teenage years were spent on the streets of Radz-at-Han and she often felt abandoned and forgotten despite her father technically still being her legal guardian. She would resort to more than one less than savory means to survive.

When the people of Dalmasca attempted to liberate their capital Rabanastre from the Garleans, Evien traveled there to aid in the fight and died in the city's destruction. Deciding there was not much for her left in Radz-at-Han, Shion took up her father's alchemy notes and began researching the Philosopher's Stone herself. With the loss she had endured, Shion seeks immortality to not have to lose herself as well. She believed that the key to discovering the stone may be in Eorzea and so traveled west from Thavnair, where she set up shop in Ul'dah as a librarian, giving her access to a variety of books. Upon arriving in Ul'dah Shion encountered a man in blue who promised to let her cast a variety of wonderful spells, but after being conned out of nearly all her gil all Shion had in her hands was an empty Blue Mage soul crystal. Shion was bailed out by a man from Ala Mhigo named Alec Red, who helped her land a job in Ul'dah and let her live in his house until she could afford an apartment.

Character

Appearance

Shion's clothing gives away her Thavnairian origin, with bright colors and fanciful fabric. A thin silver charm bracelet hangs on Shion's right wrist, each charm on it a memento of family and friends. Her long hair tied into an extravagant ponytail is her pride and joy, and her figure shows a lifetime of dancing, giving away her combat style.

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. Due to her harder teenage years, Shion knows her way around the back streets and underworld of society.

Shion's shelves at her apartment are filled with books of alchemy, 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's father Evien introduced her mother Kallen to it, and Shion herself has been a faithful of Faram the Father her whole life.

Combat

As a Thavnairian dancer, Shion wields chakrams for both melee and ranged combat and moves across the battlefield with grace fitting a stage. And though Shion has a Blue Mage soul crystal, the monster abilities she has copied see more use in her alchemy experiments than in combat. It's not unheard of for her to fight with them however.
