➤ Y'URAQ TIA. (pronounced Yah-oo-rock Tea-ah)
Since his mysterious awakening in the wastelands of Eastern Thanalan with no memories. Y'uraq embarked on a grand journey, or his 'long, and strange trip' as he endearingly puts it. In his search for answers and lost memories, Y'uraq's journey to rediscover himself yielded their moments of discovery and wonder, though they did little to calm the growing confusions and strives for answers.
Before long, fragments of his memories began to return to him while he took on the life of a travelling, freelance sellsword. Though Y'uraq was able to rediscover some brighter truths about himself, notably his caliber with swords, and his potential for spellcasting. Before long, terrible visions and nightmares from his once forgotten fears stirred his dark memories. Despite the terrible pain Y'uraq felt before these twisted reflections and its promise of freedom. In these uncertain times, Y'uraq felt he could embrace these dark visions as his instinct. Since crossing that threshold, it was when Y'uraq became akin to evoking and harnessing the dark emotions that would betray the great promise for him as a paladin.
In result of Y'uraq's vain pursuits for forgotten memories through power, and contest yielded more than he bargained for. His tragic mysteries came to surface as Y'uraq remembered the mournful night Dalamud fell, and the chain of the events that followed into his dark declension. Since nearly losing himself for a second time to his own turmoils those following moons, Y'uraq became determined to fight for his second chance and reclaim his own destiny. Y'uraq's quest for redemption was not without its terrible dangers, challenges, hardships and moral crossroads.
Despite the odds and stakes raised against him, Y'uraq was never alone in his struggles and battles against the forces that sought to claim him as a tool of destruction. In the end, It was the kindness, friendships, and the lessons Y'uraq gained and learned across his 'strange, long trip' that saved him through his ordeal with the dark.
Since completing his joining ritual and earning his freedom, Y'uraq has made it his new purpose to learn to seize the bright opportunities waiting for him in the civilized world. Inspired by the incredible artists and crafters across Eorzea, Y'uraq took it upon himself to explore his own creative calling and explore unknown frontiers as a craftsman.
Although Y'uraq earned a great wealth, success, and popularity in the markets those following moons, it was not enough to pacify the lingering darkness in his heart. Determined to uncover the mystery of his lineage. Y'uraq has set on a journey across Eorzea, and look to the past once more to find his true destiny as a black mage.
Though his progress was steady at best, it wasn't long before Y'uraq found himself at struggle with


by Incansun/Y'uraq Tia
Y'uraq stands at just an ilm over six fulms, appearing slightly taller than the average male miqo'te. His darker complexion strongly suggest he is indeed no stranger to the sun. Though he may seem physically limited, Y'uraq's lithe frame and speed has made him into a swift and precise striker when a moment demands it.
His moods are easily read through his eyes, either revealing a radiance of joy through his sharp, dark ambers partly glinting in the light. Or when they're dulled and concealed by his dark hairs, revealing a somber look in his eyes. Two longer bangs hanging down on both opposite sides of his head with his pointed furry ears slightly leaning toward the back of his head. With smaller fangs that reveal in his smiles, and in less friendlier moments.
Since his travels, Y'uraq's interests have protruded in the finer things, which soon reflected on his casual and battle attire. Y'uraq's outfits demand for subtle elegance while also keeping comfort and practicality in mind. Y'uraq keeps an extensive wardrobe packed with clothes and attire ranging from 'cute', to 'casual, to 'elegant' to 'battle-ready'.
He often wears the colors white, black, and/or red.
Numerous scars over his arms, back, hips, and torso. Each one tracing memories of the trials and hardships he’s faced throughout his life.
On his face, a long scar runs down his right brow, over his eye and a few ilms down his cheek, There is a smaller scar running down the left side of his face near his lips. Over the course of his journey Y'uraq has since added two black stripes over both sides his face and three smaller ones running down the bridge of his nose
Unlike most people that would brag about their scars while letting onlookers awe in wonder, Y’uraq thinks of them as nothing more than a testament of the battle's he's faced, and his will to fight on.
Y'uraq generally speaks in a soft-spoken voice, The pitch and tone of his voice makes him incredibly easy to read, from his cheery and high spirited enthusiasm, to the less favored melancholic tones.
Yuraqitem3.png"Star's Heart" : An important relic to Y'uraq's past. With his mother's help, Y'uraq made and adorned a platinum necklace with pearls and an peculiar dark purple gemstone locked at the brooch. A symbol to his devotion and a promise of something great and wonderful ahead of him. He was inspired to make one to present to his chosen mate someday, just as his sire had done for his mother. In his effort to protect his mother's keepsake, it eventually found itself in the wrong hands before revealing the true potential hidden inside. His mother's soulstone.
Yuaqitemberylcrest.png"Beryl Crest" : A Turquoise necklace recovered from the ruins of Beryl Point. Y'uraq proudly keeps his tribe's crest close to his heart as an eternal reminder of his true identity and heritage.
Yuraqarsnotoria.png"Ars Notoria" : During a visit to the ruins of Beryl Point, Y'uraq found and recovered an old, weathered codex that once belonged to his mother. Inside, the book contains a collection of manuscripts on archaic prayers and spells by both Ishgardian and Nymian scholars dating back to the end of the fifth umbral era. Much of of book's diagrams, and ley charts remain an undecipherable nightmare for Y'uraq.
Yuraqitem2.png"Chabuca" : Formerly his sire's lance. Since it's recovery, Chabuca has proven to be a sturdy and resilient piece of Lominsan steel. In time, Y'uraq has reacquainted himself with the weapon, taking much from his sire's example in practice.
Yuraqflameringbrands.png"Ringbands of Flames" : Armed or unarmed, Y'uraq almost never seen without a pair of augmented ruby ringbands fit over the back of his hands. Transmuted to draw and evoke aether from the astray leys, enabling Y'uraq to cast and ignite aetherial fire with his bare hands without risking self-immolation. They however, do very little to protect Y'uraq from frostbite.


YuraqPldstone.png"Soul of the Paladin" : Confident in his specialty with a sword and shield, Y'uraq challenged his skills and managed to prove himself to the sultanguard in a mere two moons. Y'uraq ascended as a free paladin and earned his soulstone. However, Y'uraq's lust for battle and vainglorious tendencies often made him forget his creed. It wasn't long before his soul of the paladin began to lose its luster the more he turned to rage for power in combat, until it became unresponsive for two years before it would begin to show faint signs of response to its chosen master again.

Since completing his joining, the light radiating from Y'uraq's soul of the paladin has shown its glow steadily returning, Y'uraq looks to the possibility of finding another mentor that will help him refresh his knowledge and finish his training correctly.

YuraqBlmstone.png"Soul of the Black Mage" : Since experiencing its hellish potential first hand, Y'uraq had begun to wonder if his mother's knowledge about thaumaturgy and aether extended far beyond the things openly she shared with him. Knowing full well the severity for possession of a forbidden Mhachi relic, Y'uraq guards his inherited soulstone closely.

In the following moon since completing his joining, Y'uraq came across a peculiar, yet chipper xaela man whom was quick to assess his talent as a thaumaturge. It wasn't long before the stranger confirmed Y'uraq's suspicions, but the man didn't seem remotely as dangerous as black mages were thought to be. In the end, Y'uraq took a risk and revealed his soul of the black mage to the man who would become his new mentor.

YuraqDRKstone.png"Soul of the Dark Knight" : In the midst of an unholy ritual, Y'uraq had his first encounter with his destined soul of the dark knight. His mind was shattered and his spirit broken from the terrible visions after coming face to face with the concentrated darkness that became his shadow, his darkside. Y'uraq was reawakened to suffer the effects of his madness unleashed for moons before fate would spare him from his dark destiny.

With a lot of help from his friends, Y'uraq managed to overcome and survive the many hardships, trials, and tribulations his 'long strange trip' brought with it. After two, long and arduous years of sweat, blood and tears. Y'uraq completed his joining ritual, earned his soul of the dark knight, and found the redemption and forgiveness he long sought for.


by Sarah Cleary/Z'laish Tia
Y'uraq has never been the kind to go quietly into the night. Instead, he's defiance to overcome the challenges and obstacles thrown at him with the best of his abilities and triumph in the end.
His experiences, origins, and heritage have inspired him through the struggles of his journey. At times his pride would flip an imminent defeat into a moment of triumph in the blink of an eye evoking an incredible strength and constitution against what ever opposed him. However, misplaced pride serves only to nourish his shadow.
In his weaker, more private moments, Y'uraq has found himself drowning in memories, yearning back for his relatively innocent, and care-free days before the Calamity.
Despite the rage and destructive power Y'uraq became notorious for, Y'uraq would at times surprise people with how caring and understanding he could be toward friends and strangers in need. In the end, it wasn't his sense of 'justice', but his empathy for the suffering of others that revealed who he truly was.
In his brightest moments, Y'uraq has been noted to exhibit exuberance, joy, and confidence through his vibrant and queerly cheerful demeanor toward the world around him.
Y'uraq is very open minded. As such, he is eager to hear and learn about anything and everything unknown to him without fear or judgement. As an academic enthusiast, he is keen on learning about anything and everything from the people and the world around him.

ENFP - The Campaigner


Since he can remember, Y'uraq was trained in several armed arts through childhood including one-handed swords, greatswords, and more blades of all shapes and sizes. Over time, his training with weapons extended to fight with swords and shields, lances, daggers, and battle-axes. Having very little experience with unarmed combat, Y'uraq will turn to thaumaturgy and magic to aid his victory, or survival. He casually practices his aim with corporeal projectiles to conserve his casting hands.
Through moons of nightmarish trials and deeds, Y'uraq has learned much from the Lambs of Dalamud, and his former master in the forbidden arts. Including evoking and harnessing aether into a volatile and destructive force. Embracing his fear, anger, and hatred to unleash on his victims. Y'uraq's knowledge extends to necromancy, shadow and blood magic. To this day Y'uraq has vowed to reject the dark, and terrible things Rune Fury had taught him, but retains his knowledge as a means to identify void magic when he sees it.
Note: Resistant to void/dark-aspected magic and effects.


Y'uraq training.png
Gifted with a strong affinity to aether, Y'uraq was quick to demonstrate his potential as a spellcaster since a very young age.
Y'uraq's preferred school of magic. Years of studying and practicing basic aetherology through his youth has strenghtened Y'uraq's knowledge over both the astral and umbral leys. He is acknowledged by the thaumaturges guild as an adept in their ranks, Y'uraq continues to demonstrate and reflect the great and volatile powers of the fire, lightning, and ice elements.
Since childhood, swords have been Y'uraq's weapon of choice. Years of mastery have enabled him to drive, slash, swing and maneuver his blades with agility, and percision.
Y'uraq's will to fight pushes him to defy his odds, and fight past his known limits.
Despite his deceptively thin and light frame, Y'uraq's has proved the power to evoke a great physical might through sheer emotion alone. When his darkside is evoked, Y'uraq also gains an immense constitution, allowing him to withstand heavy combat at close quarters, while retaining an array of volatile and powerful spells at his disposal.


Y'uraq has been prone to underestimate his foes too lightly before learning a harsh lesson in his current limitations, and situational awareness.
Y'uraq suffered a heavy injury to his right leg in early adolescence. He is likely to fall with a firm and direct strike to his right leg.
Despite Y'uraq's set of skills and abilities at his disposal, he is very light for a man his height.
Y'uraq is vulnerable without a weapon, or his ringbands to evoke spells with.
Y'uraq's greatest strength is a but a great double edged sword. Y'uraq aether is easily sensed by voidsent and aetherscopes. Hungry voidsent lured to Y'uraq's aether are common in his wild expeditions.

NPCs featured are works of creation by yours truly and the Amazing folks I've had the pleasure of RP'ing with. You know who you are!
NPCs (Vol 1)
Gi’turo Nunh:

Y’uraq’s Sire. In life, Gi’turo was able to accomplish much since leaving the Y behind in pursuit of his own tribe. Gi'turo had since grown among the more distinguished warriors of his tribe. Noted much for his brute strength and skill with a heavy weapon in hand. Y’uraq spent much of his childhood aspiring to be just like his sire someday. Gi’turo met his end defending his home from a horde of pirates on the night of the Calamity.

Y'uraq had since proudly adopted his paternal ancestry as a son of the Jaguar tribe in honor of his sire's memory.

Rulia Rotol:

Y’uraq’s mother. Rulia was born and raised with the Ma tribe in the mountains of Gyr Abania, she blessed with an immense talent for spellcasting. Ma'rulia was fortunate studying abroad in Limsa Lominsa when word of political turmoil broke out Ala Mhigo. Having little choice, she remained in Limsa before fate met her with Y'turo. Despite and obstacles set by cultural differences, Rulia proved herself to be able and resourceful enough to earn her life alongside Y'turo in Beryl Point. Since becoming a mother, Rulia became more devoted to raising her children Y’nida and Y’uraq through their childhood until they would be old enough to fight and defend beryl point from threats themselves.

Though Rulia had long fallen during a kobold siege on Beryl point, her mysterious legacy lives through her family's soul of the black mage.

Y'nida Tia:

Y’uraq spent as much of his time as he could at his older brother's side. But drifted further apart during their adolescence as the two took on their separate mantles in the settlement of Beryl Point. Y’nida chose to follow his mother’s pressures, spending much of his years away from home while studying in Limsa’s Arcanist guild. Y'nida managed to exceed and earn himself a place among the Lominsan acnanists before he returning to Beryl Point. He disappeared during a siege by the 86th, and Y'nida's fate remains uncertain.

G’mocci Isabra:

G’mocci was a young huntress living in Beryl Point. She responsible for Y’uraq’s early combat training. Despite being an accomplished huntress and instructor in her tribe, Gi’mocci’s relationship with Y’uraq soured with every challenge he would overcome with ease only to openly accuse him of foul play.

G’mocci fought and survived through the Calamity, until she sealing her own fate the night she had the survivors rally against Y’uraq’s exile from the Beryl Point. In the midst of his dark rampage, Y’uraq recalled striking G’mocci down, For a long time, Y'uraq struggled with his past actions before he eventually learned to let go of his past

Caylee Jeren:

A Hyurian Midlander Y’uraq came across during one of his many young excursions around La Noscea. Before long, Y’uraq and Caylee fell into their first romance that would lasted nearly two years before their growing discourse drove them far beyond repair. Caylee departed from la Noscea with a bitter goodbye only three years before the calamity.

Y’uraq had never heard or seen her since, until their fateful reunion at Rune Fury's side. She was later struck and defeated by Kim'ahri before she was swallowed into the depths of Tam-tara.

NPCs (Vol 2)
86th Order Matriarch Ma Ri:

The Territorial disputes between the settlers Beryl Point and the Kobolds of the 86th have spanned through generations dating back to the Sixth Astral Era. Through the entirety of Y’uraq’s past life, the people Beryl point would clash against the Matriarch's underlings. Heavy losses were claimed on both side, including the destruction of the land.

One bitter night, Y’uraq witnessed the dreadful moment his mother was struck down by the matriarch herself. In a rage, Y’uraq rushed toward Ma Ri, managing slice off two of her fingers in combat before the craven monster retreated with her kin into their mountain, taking what they could, supplies, food, and prisoners including Y'nida.

Rune Fury & The Lambs of Dalamud:

Rune Fury took a special interest in Y’uraq after having witnessed him survive an unholy ritual. Before long, Rune Fury trained Y'uraq as her new 'Shadow Reaver', and awakened the terrible, and destructive force wrought by his pains, fears, and sorrows. Despite the dark guidance and unlikely comfort Rune Fury could offer her most promising knight, Y’uraq loathed anddespised Rune Fury for the hell and torment her training subjected him to over those coming moons. At the night of Y'uraq's escape, the old Roegadyn approached her hysterical student. Y'uraq succumbed to his madness and defied his dark mentor in vicious combat, before mortally wounding his former mentor after slashing Rune Fury's left arm clean off.

Thought reports and sightings of the crazed cultists were corfirmed across Eorzea in the following years, Rune Fury's fate was uncertain. Until her reunion with Y'uraq in her bid to reclaim her 'prodigal son' revealed her physically intact. Rune Fury forced Y'uraq to take her trial before her cultists took Ca'yita as leverage. Y'uraq has since passed her test without succumbing to her trap before he and his friends ventured into Tam-Tara to put an end to her once and for all.


Ironwing was retrieved following the tragedy of Cartenau after losing his previous owner and rider in the midst of bahamut's wrath. The white feathered, and ill-tempered war chocobo was re-issued under Y'uraq's care after his enlistment to the Maelstrom. Despite their rocky beginnings, Y'uraq refused to give up on Ironwing. Many moons passed before he was able to gain soothe the chocobo's bitter loneliness and gain his confidence.

Today, Ironwing carries strong bond with his new rider and caregiver. As well as becoming much calmer, and friendlier toward people and loud places that once make him feel very anxious and cornered. As a war chocobo, Ironwing is eager to carry Y'uraq across battlefields and dangerous territories. Even going as far as furiously pecking and kicking anyone or anything who would threaten Y'uraq or his friends.

Sena'li Mujuuk:

A despicable cutthroat hired by an Ul’dahn mogul following Y'uraq's triumphant, and unprecedented conquests over the Grindstone. Sena’li was sent to break into Y’uraq’s home and steal the prize money suspected to be stashed somewhere inside. The thief bid his time before breaking in, only to find Arzu still inside. Sena'li forced himself violently on Arzu, demanding her to open Y’uraq’s safe. Arzu bravely defied and fought off the intruder before Sena'li's sentries warned of Y'uraq's return. Sena'li stabbed Arzu in her stomach and fled, leaving her to die.

Y’uraq eventually caught up to Sena’li in a viciously violent, and bloody vengeance for the death of his unborn son.

Y'asmei Toaki:

Arzu's half-sister. Y'uraq met Y'asmei in a friendly visit turned violently ill as she took y'uraq by force in a twisted bid to drive Arzu away from him. Y'uraq had since resented the vile woman to vengeance, before news of her death in Gyo's hands only drove him with more ire than peace of mind for a long time before he would finally let go.

NPCs (Vol 3)

Ca'nipe Nunh:

Though Y'uraq hadn't suffered Ca'nipe's tyranny like Ca'yita and her family tribe had. Regardless, he vowed to lend his blade to her cause, and strike Ca'nipe down after discovering Ca'yita bleeding, battered to an inch of her life. Y'uraq was convinced this was the perfect opportunity exercise his wrath, and unleash his shadow in the name of justice.

In the end, Y'uraq had indeed served the Ca Tribe as a proper Dark Knight, and a defender of the downtrodden. While inadvertently earning his Nunhship title.

Ca'geh Zihde:

Since stumbling upon the curious and self-appointed "little shadow", Y'uraq's darkest hours took a sad, yet illuminating detour upon discovering none other than Ca'yita's estranged little sister. Despite Y'uraq's optimism to reintroduce her to her family, Ca'geh plead him to keep her a secret from the rest of the Ca's. Y'uraq agreed to the girl's terms and resumed meeting with the little shadow at her discretion.

Before long, Y'uraq was able to learn much about the Ca's through Ca'geh's life and the recent past. She often kept a close watch, stalking and observe Y'uraq leading her tribe through their recent hardships. When Y'uraq made his plans to step down as Nunh, Ca'geh immediately begged Y'uraq to take her to the civilized world with him. Y'uraq did not need much convincing. Y'uraq however struggled much to convince the child to accept the opportunities a new life in Civilization could offer her, she did not sway from remaining in the shadows.

After a brief conflict with the troubled child, Y'uraq was able to dissuade Ca'geh from nearly killing her own sister in a bid to keep her asleep forever, and even trust him into waiting until her sister awakes. Watching the two sisters reuniting brought Y'uraq memories of the his own long-lost brother.

The following moons have improved as the two were able to bond to the point Y'uraq consider himself a male role model for Ca'geh. Though she is still wary of the rest of the world knowing she exists, he hoped to help Ca'geh come out of her shell.

While Ca'geh has indeed become more and more outspoken those following moons, Y'uraq feels her lack of a proper role model has made her rather difficult to deal with.

"The Ca's":

Ca'yita's half sisters, named Ca'yume, Ca'rina, Ca'khuna, Ca'ohmo, Ca'dalaa, Ca'towi, Ca'mia, and Ca'sanra. After Y'uraq stepped down as Nunh of the Ca tribe, eight women from the Ca tribe swore fealty to Y'uraq and followed him back to civilization. In the following moons, Y'uraq had helped them settle in Gridania, and establish a steady living as his retainers and huntresses.

Since then The Ca's have each made their own efforts to adjust living in the modern world while and explore the possibilities they couldn't had found back in Southern Thanalan. Including the new friendships, and adventures they went on to have on have on their own. Over time, Y'uraq's relationship with the Ca's steadily shifted from traditional tribal conventions and more into a more civilized and professional partnership. In the end the Ca's hard work and dedication to Y'uraq's enterprise yielded everyone involved a lot of wealth.

Since expanding his business out further East into the city of Kugane, the Ca's were assembled and dispatched to gather and collect the exotic and valuable raw materials from the recently liberated region. As the Ca's expedition moved further northwest into the Azim Steppes, they were met by Xaela and their vast and diverse cultures at the settlement of Reunion.

Before long, the sisters voiced their wish to resign as Y'uraq's retainers and settle down to live among the Xaela. Y'uraq obliged happily to the faithful sisters before gifting them with the deed and the properties of Rosepetal Fineries, assuring they can return calmly to Eorzea as the hardworking entrepeneurs they proved themselves to be.

Ziho Lizuh:

Following the series of events in Southern Thanalan, Y'uraq shared a fateful encounter with a keeper of the moon miqo'te girl he remembered meeting and befriending before the Calamity. Like the rest of Eorzea, the tragic events had claimed the life Ziho once knew as well. Thought she was unwilling to speak of her missing years, Y'uraq's days in Gridania became deceivingly brighter as the two spent the following week re-kindling their friendship before things took a much more intimate turn.

However, Ziho's intentions proved false. In the end, the turned-succubi's attempt to end Y'uraq's life was turned on her before he took a dark pleasure in dismembering and tormenting the voidsent a taste of her own medicine before consuming her aether for himself, but it wouldn't be long before he discover the terrible repercussions of his dark deed.

The inadvertent efforts of sylphic magic and alchemy allowed Ziho to re-emerge from Y'uraq madness as monstrous arachnid, before she was immediately confronted and put down by Kim'ahri, Syf, Ca'yita, and Ca'geh.


A former leader of a pod of touched ones. Kitxio bared witness to Y'uraq undoing his twisted 'prank' to feed him and other 'walking ones' to a mutated morbol. During Y'uraq's rampage, Kitxio was able to sedate and imprison him with aim to control the 'scary one' and unleash the monster he witnessed on little solace. Before his plans were thwarted by Katxia, with help from Ca'yita, Ca'geh, Syf, and Kim'ahri coming to rescue Y'uraq and his 'pod' from his shortsighted plan.

In their following encounter, Y'uraq found it in himself to forgive the disgraced sylph, to his sister's approval. Kitxio spent much time ashamed of his past deeds that following year, until he and Y'uraq fought side by side in attempt to defend the remains of his pod from a unit of Garlean deserters. He was slashed down by a magitek reaper in effort to save his kin.

NPCs (Vol 4)


Kitxio's twin sister. She first met Y'uraq when she took pity in his torment wrought on by her kin's toxins and illusions. She immediately took it upon herself to soothe, cure, and switch her own medicine to help him counter and resist sylphic illusions. Since his rescue from the Sylphlands, Katxia has been grateful to Y'uraq's friends for saving her kin from the monster her brother unleashed. She was compelled enough to venture beyond her homeland and join Y'uraq on his adventures to lend her healing hand.

Since Ca'yita's rescue, Katxia returned to her home at the southern reaches of the Sylphlands where she was able to recover from Y'uraq's dark ordeals in relative peace that following year. Until the rage of conflict in the neighbouring Gyr Abania brought a unit of Garlean deserters to trample and occupy her pod's new settlement. Despite Y'uraq's aid, Katxia lost much of her pod in their battle for freedom from the Garleans.

With nowhere else to turn, the touched sylph has agreed to live incognito under Y'uraq's protection.

Ronzoix Joubert:

A disgraced Ishgardian nobleman whose deceptive ways earned him a place as a slave master among the Lambs of Dalamud. Y'uraq was helplessly tormented under Ronzoix's boot in attempt to break him.

Since Y'uraq's escape. Ronzoix's corpse was retrieved and reanimated as Rune Fury's new champion. Ronzoix sought vengeance on Y'uraq, driven to take what he valued most. However Y'uraq's might proved to be the greater once more, and Ronzoix was forced to into a last resort, With the immense aether evoked by the stolen soul of the black mage. Ronzoix made himself into Cuchulainn's avatar before he was ultimately defeated and vanquished by Y'uraq and his friends.

Kina Nasegul:

A keeper of the moon, and once Y'uraq closest friend in Beryl Point, Y'uraq and Kina spent much time together venturing to Limsa Lominsa together from barhopping to partaking in festivals together and the company they had found. Kina often flirted and teased Y'uraq, insisting she'd happily mate and breed with him if he were only stronger. On the night of the Calamity, Kina was captured before she broke free and fleeing with the other survivors into the wilds the night of the Calamity.

In their dark reunion, Kina was struck down by Y'uraq in cold blood. Her blood in his hands had since brought him much turmoil for allowing his blinded rage to betray his best friend. Y'uraq and Kina shared a second twisted reunion at Rune Fury's side, reborn as a succubus. In their bid to Rescue Ca'yita from Tam-Tara, Kina fought and unleashed the flames of her fury at Y'uraq and his friends alongside her void-sister, Caylee. But she was struck down as she took one last bitter look at Y'uraq, before she fell into the depths.

Jemomo Bushoho:

A lalafellin taken to the way of piracy, smuggling, and slavery. Jemomo would sail with his crew across the south seas in search of small villages, tribes, and hamlets to raid and plunder goods and slaves for profit. Following a hint of beryl point in Upper La Noscea, Jemomo's crew of Roegadyns, Highlanders, And Elezens raided Y'uraq's home. Despite resistance by the huntresses and defenders, Jemomo's crew crushed and murdered those that resisted the pirates and capture the remaining survivors along with Y'uraq.

Y'uraq still looks back at Jemomo, and all slavers like him with scorn. It would be many summers since the Calamity before Rune Fury revealed his return in bid she takes his vengeance on his slaver. Y'uraq willing walked himself and his friends into her trap, only to survive certain death thanks to them. Jemomo revealed his connections to the lambs and his place as a pupil of Rune Fury. He too was promised with freedom and more riches waiting for him, with the end of Y'uraq's life.

In the end, Jemomo was overcome by his darkside's greed and unleashed his fury on Y'uraq, and Zisa'a. After losing arms after another, he was finally severed in half by Y'uraq's blade.

Y'tita Ralas:

Memories of the tribe elder, Y'tita came to Y'uraq during a final meditation he underwent in preparation for the horrors he was about to face in tam-tara. Though the tribe elder passed away during Y'uraq's early childhood, he remembers her loving and patient example along with lessons she had to teach him whenever he was sent to her council for his misconduct.

Y'tita taught Y'uraq to live an honest life without ulterior motives, or needing to control the world around him. She also taught him and that there was a lot more power in forgiveness than any vengeful pursuit could offer. More notably, Y'uraq remembers the parable she told him of the love and kindness white jaguar that stood for, and everything the bitter and hateful black jaguar could never be.

A lesson that he keeps in mind to the present day.

NPCs (Vol 5)


Y'uraq built the mammet formerly known as 'Placeholder' in an effort to construct a band of mammets to play musical instruments to support his vocals. Ronny is an eager and spirited mammet always ready to jack his magitek amplifier to eleven, along with his powerful and present demeanor demanding his full attention when it's time for a show.


Y'uraq built a second mammet after 'Ronny' with intent on making him the bass guitarist of his new band. His absent demeanor often clashes in contrast with Ronny's own eccentric demeanor, lacking a share of vision. He is also much more patient, or simply just too care free to care about anything other than playing his instrument. Whether or not other people would come watch and listen to him.


The final addition to the band. Y'uraq designed and built a slightly larger mammet around his torso in order deploy and retract his drum set from his storage compartment between performances. Addy is much quieter than his brothers, but he is always happy to lend a hand and follow directions as best he can.

J'arisa Ortac:

Y'uraq's aunt, closest living relative, and Ala Mhigan Resistance medic. With the liberation of Ala Mhigo, J'arisa has been able to relinquish the stress of triage and enjoy a slightly less demanding responsibility of treating and caring for adventurers and mercenaries in the City of Ala Ghiri. However like many mothers, War against the Garleans has claimed all of her daughters. Leaving only her son, J'vid as her only living child.

As Rulia's half sister, J'arisa has been able to provide Y'uraq with many answers. Including the mistery of his lineage, his strong affinity for magic and spellcasting, and his mother's tragic destiny as a black mage. Regardless, J'arisa's has been able to grant Y'uraq with brighter recounts of his recent ancestor's history.

J'vid Tia:

Y'uraq's cousin, and Ala Mhigan Resistance warrior. Despite losing his older sisters to the Garlean empire, J'vid's dreams of a free Ala Mhigo carried him through his pains and losses well into the final siege to reclaim the Capital city from the XIIth legion.

Since then, Y'vid has taken to enjoy a relatively peaceful life as a guardsman, keeping the city of Ala Ghiri safe and secure for visitors and traders alike.

NPCs (Vol 6)

61st Order Matriarch Tu Ti:

A kobold crone and leader of a two-man order. With only her 'mate-for-life', Mi To at her side, Tu Ti had recently claimed the ruins of Beryl Point as her own after a battle with Y'uraq. Despite their terrible beginnings, Y'uraq acknowledged the troubled Kobold's right to be despite his disdain for the way Tu Ti continued to demean and subjugate everyone around her.

Tu Ti continues to reside in the Ruins of Beryl Point with her mate. Despite the sentimental value, Y'uraq had decided to cut his losses and leave the ruined settlement to the Deranged pair of Kobolds.

Mi To:

Tu Ti's consort and only member left in the 61st order. Despite his own strength, Mi To tends to submit to his Matriarch's will to a fault. In addition, Mi To has bared a frightful obsession with Y'uraq and the similarities with his own son that also left the 61st in favor of another order. Since his aided escape, Y'uraq swore to keep his distance from the deranged pair of kobolds.

F'shoun Tia:

In his seach for answers, Y'uraq encountered the curious, bearded miqo'te during a personal trip in the twelveswood. Since then, Y'uraq was able to confide in the conjurer for guidance and answers in understanding the awakened darkness that was undeniably a part of him now. F'shaun offered Y'uraq plenty of tools to help uncover the insight he sought within.

The two met regularly over the next three moons until had nothing more to teach Y'uraq.

Zozora Zora:

Born to a life of privilege and splendor, Zozora moved from Radz-at-han to Limsa in a bid to start a new life among the working class folk. Despite their distanced and professional beginnings as Y'uraq's new retainer, Zozora couldn't help but take concern for her boss' distant demeanor before her offer of friendship revealed much more about Y'uraq than she anticipated.

Regardless, Zozora spends much of her working hours as his assistant and accountant, when she's not out on a venture.

A complete list of all the player characters that have left a lasting impact on Y'uraq since the beginning of his strange, long trip.
Player Characters (Vol 1)

However, Y'uraq's fate made his romance brief, despite his attempt to fight against his creed as a Dark Knight. Their stormy relationship occasionally found patches of peace before another storm would rise to threaten their relationship. She remained as the most influential figure in his strange, long journey.

As much as the two yearned to bond and walk the aisle together someday, Y'uraq's fate would once again tear Arzu from his arms and sacrifice what wished he valued more in exchange for unlocking his full potential.

Though Arzu is no longer in his life, Y'uraq does his best to remember her for the light she offered him in his darkest hours.

Sarnai Kha:

Thanks to Sarnai's guidance, Y'uraq was able to grasp and understand his darkside and the fundamentals of his training.

Player Characters (Vol 4)

Songs and tracks I've used (some more frequently than others) in RP to set moods for scenes and ambiance.
The following links will take you to Youtube, please mind your speakers or headphones when clicking the links. Updated periodically.

Scenes and Ambience (Vol 1)

Scenes and Ambience (Vol 2)





✦ I consider myself to be a medium to heavy roleplayer, I'm a sucker for character development and story continuity. I also consider as a dynamic roleplayer, this means that I keep my IC and OOC knowledge between myself and Y'uraq well apart, this keeps the fourth wall nice and sturdy.

✦ This also means that I do not, and will not do or accept any 'fast forwarding of major character developments' between Y'uraq and your characters or permit 'metagaming' of any sort.

✦ However, due to the length of some scenes taking potentially longer than a couple of days depending on scheduling. OOC discussions to establish a time lapse after a scene without disrupting each other's stories is the only exception to the rule above.

✦ 'Retconning' is only limited to retyping a post before giving other people in the scene a chance to respond. Otherwise, I will not negotiate it. Part of character development is things may not always work out perfectly, but it's up to your character to overcome the obstacle. Own up to the consequences!

✦ In addition, if an aspect of RP makes you uncomfortable in a scene we're playing, please send me a /tell, letting me know. Communication is very important, more important than potentially keeping immersion.

✦ With that said, I reserve the right not to engage or RP with someone I wish to avoid. This goes back to the whole "dynamic" RP thing, forced and unwanted interactions are never a good thing.

✦ Though I may not always be IC or available while I'm online, please be sure to send me a tell before initiating roleplay with me. Unless I'm already committed to something else, I would be happy to drop things aside and set up for a scene with you. If I'm already ready RP'ing, feel free to walk up and join in. I don't ignore people unless they're trying to grieve RP.

✦ I generally use /say as my default designated RP channel, but I also use /tell, /party to IC when the circumstance or distance demands it.

✦ I am an M/RPer, meaning I am fine with the possibility of being part of a story arc that includes violence, sexuality, drug / alcohol use, dramatic, obscene aspects, scenes and plot points. In addition, I am fine with Y'uraq facing his own moments of weakness, and defeat. However, keep in mind I do not want to have this happening every day/week/month. I expect these to be nothing more than certain scenes and important plot points and helping someone progress their story development and/or my own.

✦ With that in mind, moments of levity are always welcome where possible.

✦ I am okay with some lore-bending. If the lore does not explicitly state something cannot be done and you have a valid reason for doing it then I have no problem. I have some of my own head cannon that fills in areas where the lore team was not as detailed as I and others would like, the gray areas that are perfect for bending without breaking. However, complete disregard for lore limits and continuity is not okay.



✦ Death/ Rebirth - If Y'uraq dies, he dies. I decide when it happens. No one is allowed to kill him unless the circumstances are set for his story to end that way, and perma-quit FFXIV with a bang.

✦ Ask about long-term injury and disfigurement. Long-term captivity or imprisonment.
