"Ah. Of six sons, yes? Yet, of three brothers. Such mother, hm? Many complications of bloodlines 'twas thought. Now, a single sister as the eldest and another as youngest. Such are elsewhere."

"Mm. An accent, yes?. Near Eastern, as one say. Thavnairian, as another would say. Hannish? Such is not of a truth, yet one would have such difficulty in avoiding Radz-at-Han. 'Tis a city, hm? Of any other. All such places smell of piss."

"Roads treacherous and bones sore. Why within such walls, hm? Ul'dah is of a city of many; of peoples, yes. As well, hm? Of faces and places and others. Warm and of similar climate, yet not of the same. Mayhap 'tis a longing of faces and places past?"

"Fluent? As one says and much so, hm? Mayhap 'tis such another finds simple pleasures in tricks of tongue and pained expressions of thought." "Roads treacherous and bones sore. Why within such walls, hm? Ul'dah is of a city of many; of peoples, yes. As well, hm? Of faces and places and others. Warm and of similar climate, yet not of the same. Mayhap 'tis a longing of faces and places past?"

Favorite Things

  • Greatest Achievement: When he was still young, A-Yasa saved a young boy from being attacked by a boar while communing with the Elementals in the South Shroud. Without his intervention, the boy would have likely been gored to death. He has kept abreast of the boy’s development over the years and finds great pride in knowing that the man he grew into rescued dozens of people during the Calamity decades later rather than hiding from the destruction.
  • Favorite Memory: His arrival at the Sharlayan motherland for the first time.
  • Favorite Dream: He once dreamed that he was a hawk riding the warm currents far above the canopy of the Twelveswood, able to see to the ends of Eorzea and beyond in every direction. The beauty of it still affects him when he recalls the sensation. A-Yasa is not sure if the dream is prophetic or not.
  • Favorite Animal: Butterflies, especially the Amdapori Morpho
  • Favorite Book: "The Six Ages" - A historical treatise on cyclical events throughout Eorzean history
  • Favorite Colors: Aquamarine, Lavender, and Black
  • Favorite Drink: Ishgardian Tea
  • Favorite Excuse: "Many pardons, ‘twas lost within my studies.”
  • Favorite Food: Shepherd’s Pie
  • Favorite Number: 3
  • Favorite Place: Gridania: The Lotus Stand
  • Favorite Season: Autumn
  • Favorite Holiday: Little Lady's Day
  • Favorite Word: Anathema
  • Favorite Compliment: "Thou art a gentleman and a scholar."
  • Favorite Insult: "Silence is a fine substitute for poor wit.”
  • Favorite Expletive: "Thou muckraker!"
  • Favorite Greeting: "Nophica’s Blessing bringeth us together once more.”
  • Favorite Farewell: "Until next we meet."

Least-Favorite Things

  • Greatest Failure: When he went to war 108 years ago against the Ala Mhigan forces with the rest of Gridania, he left behind his mother and younger sisters. Thinking them safest at home, he spent two years entrenched in the Autumn War’s conflicts only to discover upon his return that Saewynn, his youngest sister, had contracted a respiratory disease that was incurable and has passed away with much pain only two days prior to his arrival. He berates himself silently for having spent so little time with her that he can no longer recall her face from any other child’s.
  • Most Painful Memory: His mother’s dementia grew untenable in her dotage to the point that she would regularly speak with both of her late children while A-Yasa cared for her. Seeing her in such obvious pain even after sixty years without their companionship drew him to tears.
  • Worst Nightmare: Much like those gifted with the Echo after the Battle of Silvertear Skies, A-Yasa dreamed of a sky filled with falling pink stars that was a portent of the Calamity to come.
  • Least Favorite Animal: Okeanis
  • Least Favorite Color: Mustard Yellow
  • Least Favorite Drink: Mint Lassi
  • Least Favorite Food: Ginger Cookies
  • Least Favorite Place: The Sagolii Desert
  • Least Favorite Season: Winter
  • Least Favorite Holiday: Heavensturn

Upon meeting this most enigmatic, silent man in the midst of a snowfall in Ul'dah - Starlight, of course - A-Yasa was perplexed by how to crack such a hard nut. No matter what he said, the man was not inclined to answer with more than a curt phrase or shrug. Even now, he has designs to break through that wall simply for scholarly curiosity.

Roleplay Limits

I am open to mature content and themes of violence, substance (ab)use, and sex(uality), as well as coarse and excessive language, temporary injury and incapacitation, and most walk-up encounters.
Please ask about long-term and/or permanent injury and disfigurement, temporary or long-term captivity or imprisonment, potential permanent character death, and character combat.
Roleplay Style
■ If any aspect of our roleplay causes distress or makes you uncomfortable, please let me know immediately.
■ My style of roleplay is often dry with a slight knocking at the fourth wall. It is boring, I am boring.
■ Character class is not representative of character ability. I enjoy playing healers, but that doesn't mean the character is one.
■ It often takes me a longer than average time to formulate a response during roleplay.
