=Behavior=
 
Tai's worldview centers around the idea that people aren't inherently bad. His ability to see the best in people, and perhaps he imagines that his generous nature lends itself to inspire others to be nicer to one another. His outlook does tend to occlude his ability to see the underhand dealings of some members of his Free Company, though. X'tai is quick to forgive, and even quicker to come to someone's rescue, even a possible enemy. He will ramble on for hours when presented with the topics of magic or insects - two subjects at which he is most often found in study.
 
 
 
As Tai was disciplined in arcanistry, he chooses to manipulate aether through variations in vocal pitch and tone, singing his spells rather than using incantations. So unconscious is the effort now in raising magic this way that motes shaped like tiny moths tend to gather around him when he sings casually as well. Lately his grip on arcanic healing has faltered, leading him to seek alternative methods of healing.
 
Tai is quick to smile, and often masks his troubles with goofy behavior. He is easily embarrassed and often awkward around strangers.
 
Despite his best intentions, Tai makes bad snap decisions. Whether it is impatience or fear guiding the choices, they often result in unforeseen consequences; see also "bad decision roulette".
 
Blue moths often follow the scholar around, which seems to raise his brother's stress levels considerably for some reason.

An optional blurb about how your character looks and behaves during combat.
 
 
 
=== '''''<u>Weapons</u>''''' ===
 
Until recently, Tai would hang back, trying to keep out of conflicts and instead support his friends with healing magics. More recently though, his ability to structure and construct arcanic spells was shaken, and as a result he can only tap into a wilder, more dangerous aether. Under the tutelage of another redmage, X'rhun Tia, he has been more able to control it. Even so, he's not quite as combat-effective as the tia would like and is ever ready to receive pointers.
 
As per his profession the seeker carries with him a rapier, a focus and several small knives that range in use from skinning, to paring.
 
 
 
=== '''''<u>Magic</u>''''' ===
 
Tai is skilled with healing, both magical and alchemical, as well as adept in water, levin and fire-based spells. Others he has some degree of difficulty in controlling.
 
 
 
=== '''''<u>Crafting</u>''''' ===
 
Though Tai is a skilled tinker. He's by no means a master crafter. Professions such as tanning/leatherwork, weaving and goldsmithy are a bit beyond his ken. Not to mention armorcraft.
 
The seeker is perhaps best at carpentry, blacksmithing and baking, and exceptionally good at Alchemy.
 
 
 
=Background=
 
 
 
==== <span style="font-size:larger;">''<span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="font-size:small;">Birth and childhood (0-10)</span></span>''</span> ====
 
Tai was raised on an island. As such he enjoyed surfing, swimming and climbing trees. His twin sister, X'kett and he would climb the raised section of the island and also explore the tunnels that were revealed beneath the waterline when the tide was out. Of course the latter was frought with large tunnel worms and the duo often had to flee for their lives as their spelunking adventure was cut short by the beasts.
 
 
 
==== <span style="font-size:larger;">''<span style="font-size:medium;"><span style="font-size:small;">Teen Years</span></span>''</span> ====
 
Tai enjoyed life as the oldest, but when his sisters were approaching their fourth summer he'd have to assist in teaching. His mother had already taught him letters and so the male was often tasked with assisting his mother in the tribe's larger hut as she taught all manner of subjects.
 
When his mother disappeared, Tai was forced to take up her duties in order to earn his keep: catching and killing the various insects that threatened the crops. He discovered early on that the insect parts he gathered could be brewed into alchemical concoctions with the discarded brewers equipment he salvaged, and furthermore, he began a habit of observing and recording the behaviors of the insects. It has been hinted that Tai used a Diremite Pheromone to poison the pirates that were visiting X'aka Nunh in readiness to begin a shipping contract. His father's wrath at being the accused poisoner would be the cause of Tai's expulsion from the island, and exile to Eorzea.

<h2 style="margin-top:0px; border-color:!!!HEADER-COLOR; font-family:'palatino linotype'; font-size:25px; color:#2B6287">Childhood ❧</h2>
 +
From the Gyr Abanian Lynx tribe, X'tai was the first son born to X'arj Nunh. In the rush to flee the mad king, Tai's still-pregnant mother took several huntresses with her to live on an island under the rule of X'aka Nunh in the Cieldalaes Isles. As children though, X'tai and his sister X'kett would swim together and surf, as well as explore the tunnels beneath the island at low tide. The tunnels were also inhabited by tunnel worms and the duo often had to flee back to the safety of their tribe.
 +
 +
<h2 style="border-color:!!!HEADER-COLOR; font-family:'palatino linotype'; font-size:25px; color:#2B6287">Teenage ❧</h2>
 +
X'tai was tasked with assisting his mother in teaching the youngsters of the tribe in their small makeshift school. When his mother disappeared Tai was forced to take up her duties in order to earn his keep: catching and killing the various insects that threatened the crops. He discovered early on that the insect parts he gathered could be brewed into alchemical concoctions with the discarded brewers equipment he salvaged, and furthermore, he began a habit of observing and recording the behaviors of the insects. It has been hinted that Tai used a Diremite Pheromone to poison the pirates that were visiting X'aka Nunh in readiness to begin a shipping contract. His father's wrath at being the accused poisoner would be the cause of Tai's expulsion from the island, and exile to Eorzea.

 +
<h2 style="border-color:!!!HEADER-COLOR; font-family:'palatino linotype'; font-size:25px; color:#2B6287">Present ❧</h2>
 +
About a year after his arrival in Thanalan, Tai dropped his tribal letter and took on a more descriptive surname, Aubade, meaning Morning Song.<br>
  
=RP Hooks=
+
After seeing his brother become injured so often from their shared adventures, the scholar decided he needed a more stable lifestyle and chose to open a free clinic in the Goblet. Despite Tai's intentions, life at the clinic was hectic, and plagues, strange mutations and even bloodcurses wreaked havoc on the tiny building.<br>
(Credit is due to [[Endel Blanche]] for the idea to add in this tab!)
+
After debt collectors hounded Tai into hiding the seeker was forced to return to his tribe for a time, reuniting with his father and regaining his tribal name. He has since adopted three children and inducted them, and his partner, into the lynxes.

X'tai Tia

"No man heals himself by wounding another."

X'tai is quick to forgive, and even quicker to come to someone's rescue, even a possible enemy. He will ramble on for hours when presented with the topics of magic or insects - two subjects at which he is most often found in study.

Race Miqo'te
Clan Seeker of the Sun
Age 23 Summers
Deity Oschon
Marital Status Taken
Occupation Adventurer/Researcher
Height 5 fulms, 7 ilms
Weight 160 ponzes


General ❧

■ Slender of frame but well-muscled despite the build
■ A fist-sized scar on his left side midsection, with a corresponding exit wound on his back
■ Lightly tanned skin, blue-black hair that is perpetually uncombed
■ Tattoos on left bicep and right side of his neck (Tribal swirls and sigil of Oschon respectively)
■ Scars covering his left hand that resemble scales

Clothing ❧

Tai's clothes are often simple; a loose shirt and baggy kecks. Anything that allows him to run away faster.
Often he can be seen in more flashy attire that his children or Athrun have picked for him.

Voice ❧

X'tai's voice is a rich tenor, smooth from years of singing.
As the seeker was disciplined in arcanistry, he chooses to manipulate aether through variations in vocal pitch and tone, singing his spells rather than using incantations. So unconscious is the effort now in raising magic this way that motes shaped like tiny moths tend to gather around him when he sings casually as well.

Habits ❧

Tai has a habit of idly chewing on quills, leaving his clothes on the floor and being generally messy.
In addition to this he also makes poor snap decisions and gets overly zealous when he's fixated on study - often to the point of not eating.
Tai sings when he's idle, which is often when he's out and about.

Tai's worldview centers around the idea that people aren't inherently bad. He has ability to see the best in people, and perhaps he imagines that his generous nature lends itself to inspire others to be nicer to one another. His outlook does tend to occlude his ability to see the underhand dealings of some of his friends, though.

LIKES

Cake and sweets
Study and research
Swimming
Singing

DISLIKES

Voidsent, flans and puddings (the creature)
Eating fish
Violently intense people
Snow, the cold

OTHER

Alignment: Chaotic Good
Faults: Makes bad snap decisions
Favorite Flavors: Sweets, rolanberries
Favorite Color: Gold

Childhood ❧

From the Gyr Abanian Lynx tribe, X'tai was the first son born to X'arj Nunh. In the rush to flee the mad king, Tai's still-pregnant mother took several huntresses with her to live on an island under the rule of X'aka Nunh in the Cieldalaes Isles. As children though, X'tai and his sister X'kett would swim together and surf, as well as explore the tunnels beneath the island at low tide. The tunnels were also inhabited by tunnel worms and the duo often had to flee back to the safety of their tribe.

Teenage ❧

X'tai was tasked with assisting his mother in teaching the youngsters of the tribe in their small makeshift school. When his mother disappeared Tai was forced to take up her duties in order to earn his keep: catching and killing the various insects that threatened the crops. He discovered early on that the insect parts he gathered could be brewed into alchemical concoctions with the discarded brewers equipment he salvaged, and furthermore, he began a habit of observing and recording the behaviors of the insects. It has been hinted that Tai used a Diremite Pheromone to poison the pirates that were visiting X'aka Nunh in readiness to begin a shipping contract. His father's wrath at being the accused poisoner would be the cause of Tai's expulsion from the island, and exile to Eorzea.

Present ❧

About a year after his arrival in Thanalan, Tai dropped his tribal letter and took on a more descriptive surname, Aubade, meaning Morning Song.

After seeing his brother become injured so often from their shared adventures, the scholar decided he needed a more stable lifestyle and chose to open a free clinic in the Goblet. Despite Tai's intentions, life at the clinic was hectic, and plagues, strange mutations and even bloodcurses wreaked havoc on the tiny building.
After debt collectors hounded Tai into hiding the seeker was forced to return to his tribe for a time, reuniting with his father and regaining his tribal name. He has since adopted three children and inducted them, and his partner, into the lynxes.


Romantic Interest Platonic Love Good Standing Poor Standing
Athrun Coeur – Tai's loving fiance and faithful partner-in-crime. They met when Tai ran a clinic and grew close over time.
C'lai Nunh – A friend and former contract client of Tai. The intrepid Tia is still yet to hatch the egg they won from a hidden cave in Thanalan.
Rathien Tia – The pair met at last at a small friendly tourney and were fast friends.
X'shah Zinbhe – A matriarch and huntress of the caracal splinter of the lynxes. Tai is forever exasperated by the strong-willed woman's insistence that the only true deity among the Twelve is Azeyma, but lacks the gall to argue with a chieftain.
Rhuaza Kasa – Now known as X'shuyet Etki X'tai met this keeper at a gathering and was intrigued by her story. He's not had the chance to approach her since her induction into the Dune Specters but he still hopes to ask her about her experiences someday.
Syn'thiel Lyrin – A huntress Tai hopes to contract for an expedition into Azys Lla someday.
S'imba Tia – Tai's brother in bond. The pair met when the lynx joined his first Free Company and the pair have been strong friends since.
Kira Exjeiah – A close friend and owner of Iridescence, and his current employer.
Akihiko Misaki – A former slave and friend to the seeker. Now the raen works for Iridescence alongside Tai and Athrun.
Erikh'a Miller – Akihiko's paramour and current doctor to X'tai's free company. When he's not performing his duties as hearer, Erik is teaching Athrun and Tai's oldest adoptive son the arts of healing.
Chouwa Morrison and Winter Harrison – Two friends of X'tai's. When the clinic they all worked in buckled, the pair of lovers absconded to greener pastures. Still he meets with them from time to time.
Samuru Lantis – Though he's lost touch with the soft-spoken man, Tai often thinks of Ru and his partner Isen Yumemiru his former blademaster fondly.
