|Clan||Seeker of the Sun|
Appearance & Personality
A'mari, like all people, is a person defined by his background. He's an arrogant and supremely confident male, traits bred out of the adversity he's faced on his journey. Brash, rude, and extremely forward are all things that define this miqo'te, something someone would recognize very quickly. Like others with these particular traits, there's a faint yet distinct sense of weakness hiding behind it; a sense that he's hiding some weakness behind that image of strength.
Other than that, he's what you'd expect from a Seeker of the Sun. He's on the tall side for his people, standing just a few inches under his Hyur counterparts. His hair is brown and kept short to keep it easy to clean, the male preferring as little hassle as possible. While he's normally seen carrying a blade, he appears to lack any noticeable muscle mass. It's clear from his build that he's not much of a physical fighter, preferring his position behind a desk to the front lines of any battle.
The Antelope Tribe
On the border separating the eastern reaches of Thanalan from the Black Shroud rest the Antelope, a tribe of Seekers that have struggled to make their way in the world. Driven there by threat of extinction, they’ve had little choice but to carve out their own niche in a land that would have nothing to do with them. In their earlier years conflict with their sister clan was constant, with skirmishes between the Antelope and various Keeper tribes an almost daily occurrence. These years of battle took their toll on the Seekers of the Antelope, hardening them to more than just their enemies. It was during this time that the Antelope became what they are today; a tribe of fierce and territorial warriors that prize physical strength above all else. Seekers that reject the aetherial and technology in favor of traditional martial skill.
The Antelope are proud of their heritage and traditions and as such adhere to them almost religiously. They’re led by only one Nunh despite their numbers, with challenges infrequent. Their dedication to combat ensures that whomever ends up Nunh is by far the strongest, having had to depose the current Nunh as well as any other challengers that may be waiting in the wings. They do not trade or seek relations with Gridania and so both Tia and female share the responsibility of the hunt, both necessary to provide enough meat and supplies to keep the tribe running.
Something that sets them apart from other Seeker tribes as well as their sister clan is the almost complete absence of any mysticism. They’ve no Elders or Seers capable of guiding or advising the tribe through aetherial means, only making a rare exception for the occasional healer. In the tribe’s collective mind it’s their strength that allowed them to flourish in a land that rejected them and their strength that overcame the magic of their Keeper brethren. They see no need for it and as such reject it vehemently, magic having long become an anathema to them.
