A lanky, very small Seeker Miqo'te; standing around 5'7" with messy black hair with copper to auburn highlights, and a long lionlike tail with a soft black tuft on the end of it. She has a round androgynous face with a tattoo upon her forehead; along with a red gem from her old tribe. This little birdlike-female doesn't really have the desirable womanly curves or swell of the chest as most women her age do; in fact her name suits her aptly. She's small in general and thin. If her tunic is lifted; her ribs can be somewhat visible under the flesh. Usually dressed in raggedy baggy clothes dyed neutral earth tone-colors and scuffed up old leather boots. ---Being fed regularly now, she's not as malnourished as she used to be; but she's still a waif of a girl. Now actually having different changes of clothes; usually found in Earth tones, still dressing like a boy a good portion of the time. Concealing her identity when she's off on her own.

First impression/At a glance

Most people consider A'quila a beggar- which in some cases. She is. Others get the right first thought and become wary. She's a thief; and she will pickpocket you if you let your guard down. ---Not so much a thief any longer; but she will strike if you irritate her, or make her mad. She likes to see it as a 'grievance tax'.
Being so young yet; and fresh to the life of theft and being a thief; she's still learning to hone those skills, and often times her attempts to steal end up with her running into the back alleys. Using them to lose the people chasing her.---Has had her hopes and dreams rekindled and isn't as much of a 'broken youth' as she used to be. Now, she more focuses on honing her skills on trying to become a Machinist, Armorer, and Weaponsmith. Her disposition being much more playful, and happy-go-lucky.

Often; she's found alone and on her own. Currently; she's often found at the side of V'aar Tia. Working with V'aar as an assistant when he's in town; and spending time with him when she can. (Their relationship the result of pick-pocketing gone wrong.) Working for the Daughter of Lyrre, she's currently under the wings of the older Miqo'te; being mentored in other skills and traits as opposed to theft and pick-pocketing. Also, She now has other mentors teaching her how to fight and how to work with Machinery. Completely being lifted from the ground and now beginning to find her feet and develop into a whole new person.

To sum it up in a word: Inexperienced. She'd sooner run than fight, and when she does fight- It's with trickery and ways to confuse or blind an opponent so she can get away. One major trick up her sleeve is she has a powder she'll throw at people. Sylph powder mixed with spices designed to launch into an enemy's face and blind them along with clouding their sense of smell (Since a lot of Miqo'te track with scent as well)
Usually fast on her feet and a quick wit; she'll often try to outrun, or outsmart an opponent as opposed to physical violence. When she is pushed to extremes; she has two stabbers she'll use to threaten, or try to stab with.

Occupation, Skills, and Pastimes

A simple homeless thief Currently learning the Ins and Outs of working along side V'aar/ working for the Daughter of Lyrre. Her skills include mainly working with her hands. She adores machines, weapons, and armor. She's aspiring to become a Machinist, but also wants to learn Blacksmithing, and how to make Armor/Weapons.
She loves music, and often will sing to herself or hum. (Even more so before she falls asleep- literally will sing her own lullabies to get to sleep.) Despite the thievery, she actually has a high work ethic but has a hard time finding anyone to accept her for work due to the damage on her arms.
Favorite past-time? Eating and napping.


A'quila doesn't overly like talking about her past; her mother and father being very touchy topics which usually will make her just go silent.
Her father is (Or was, she's not sure now) the Nuhn of her tribe; Her mother passed away when she was around 13. Unable to overly cope with the loss; A'quila left her tribe. From there she's lived on her own since. Taking up odd jobs and living on her own as a form of wanderer. It was then she found pretending to be a boy was safer, and easier than being a girl. Thus, her androgyny developed once she hit puberty.
Wanting to become someone who works with metal (in any form) she began collecting scrap metal and parts. From there in her stay in Gridania, she found an old abandoned forge in the Black Shroud. Beginning to use it and try to hone her skills, one day the forge collapsed; pinning her arms between the stone, and the red hot metal and coals. Luckily; her hands were spared since she had on heavy leather-gloves.
But from the wrists up to her elbows; she suffered serious burns. (She was very lucky she didn't fully lose her arms.) Having her arms heal; it was then she was cast aside, ostracized, and rejected for work. People looking down upon her for her disfigurement. Over time; she fell into depression, rejected/resented her belief in the 12.

If not running errands, often times she's found in Ul'dah, wandering around or working on one of her many projects. Half the time hoping to find a meal, or running very small odd jobs/part time work. (Usually the jobs assisted in being given to her from V'aar or L'Vi.) More often than not if there's no work to be had, and no errands to run she can be seen hanging around the QuickSand.

Right now; A'quila has bags under her eyes from learning L'oki Wulfskar has passed away. Mourning over the loss; she has issues sleeping and it shows.

Author's Notes/OOC

Some things I want you to know-
This is an adult-themed character. She touches on topics that are morbid,graphic, and possibly mentally disturbing. Please interact at your own risk.

This character is disfigured. On her arms from her wrists near the bends of her elbows she has severe burn scars of which she's very self conscious about. She usually keeps them hidden; but every so often a slight peek of discolored bright pink skin/scar.

If you haven't picked up on it yet; This char is a girl and pretends she's a boy. In character when out and about; I'll be adressing HER, as a HIM. deliberately so to mask the identity. I'm very very very appreciative if other RPers pick up on the ruse and address A'quila as a boy; until/unless A'quila reveals her true gender/identity. Thanks sooo much everyone!!!!
A Big Thanks To...
Templete taken fromD'lyhhia Lhuil & Deirdre Ta'ea! Thank you very much for allowing me to build off of your designs!
