A LOST HUNTER
Departed from his tribe under circumstances no one has been able to pinpoint, Akhutai spent one full cycle of his life in his search. For something better? For greener pastures? Safety? Answers to life and everything in between? It can be hard to tell from just looking at him. Either way, this once proud hunter of the Khatayin has found himself stuck in Eorzea, disillusioned and grumpy.
Will he make his way back home? Will the time spent away cause him trouble? Has his mannerisms changed too much?
Stalk him, if you dare, and you might just find out.
Akhutai is ta tall man, even for his peers, often finding himself looking down on most of his kin and the rest of the races. His body is of an athletic build, where his best features appear to be his arms and core strength. His skin is dark with a faint purple hue running through it, and is decorated with scales that assist in providing natural armor. His horns are well maintained, curving forwards in a winding shape, though they seem to be kept shorter than they could be through rigorous maintenance. His eyes are naturally dark, surrounded by white limbral rings. He keeps his hair at a medium-short length, and the hairstyle could arguably simply be "How the wind put it on that day". He's not a man who cares overmuch about his appearance.
Scars & Markings: Akhutai has various scars from accidentally being poked holes in by mountain goats, stupid moves during training and other such activities. He also has a couple of places where his scales seem to have been permanently lost. His face is free of marks.
Voice: A reference/voiceclaim may be added later.

Akhutai is a man who keeps his cards close to himself. Getting him to open up can be somewhat of a challenge. Outwardly, he can appear rather stoic or even somewhat passive-aggressive. He likes to stick to what he knows, including various traditions from the steppes. He prefers to be among people, and rarely thrives in solidarity for very long at a time. Once someone gets to know him a bit better, one would see a Xaela that is a bit more mellowed down, and down on his luck most of the time. He greatly appreciates company, and tries to maintain the friendships he has. He's open minded, and doesn't shy away from walking up and talking to strangers.

Players rumours & quotes
- "He is quite scary looking, isn't he? At least that's what I first thought. But it turns out, he is rather helpful and honest. He also called me 'Friend Nabi'. I... like that. Did I mention he makes the best goat jerky?" -- Nabi Kharlu
- "Your rumor here" -- Your name here
Let me know if you want to figure something out!
- Akhutai may have had siblings in the Khatayin tribe, and I am open to most family relations outside of parents/grandparents.
- Akhutai most certainly had friends in the Khatayin tribe, so this can be arranged too.
- Akhutai may have had rivalries in other tribes, I am open to planning something here too!
- Akhutai has been working as a hired hand, bodyguard and those sorts of things in Eorzea. This can certainly be arranged too. For the time being he is still in Eorzea.
- He may end up travelling back to the Steppes, and in that event, wouldn't mind a travelling partner or two!
- ??? The floor is yours really. He's a versatile character, so within reason there's a lot of things I'd be willing to give a go.
Please enjoy this collection of commissions I have had made of Maril. You may think, "But this isn't Akhutai?" and yes, it is not, because I don't have much art of him!
So, instead you get this other art. Please check out the artists! They're all very good.
Stances on RP: I consider myself to be following the style known as Heavy RP. I have a conservative stance on lore - bending is fine under the right conditions, breaking is not. I will do my utmost best never to ignore your character if the lore is broken, however I prefer not to be put in these situations. Please ask OOCly for permission before you expose lore-broken details about your character ICly. I say this to avoid future conflicts! I am not here to be a meaniepants.
I seperate IC and OOCly very strictly, and I do not tolerate bleeding between the two.
I am open to and alright with most types of mature & dark RP.
ERP will strictly only happen if it is viable and logical in the characters story/relation. I do not regard ERP as a casual slang word for "Cybering" but rather RP like any other, that can progress or mess up a character just as much as any other RP has the possibility to do.
RP combat and injuries: I use the concept of defender's-rules. Meaning if you challenge my character to a fight, I pick the rules for that fight - and vice versa. I prefer freeform over rolls in every aspect of RP, I thrive on spontaneous ideas and improv. All of my characters are appropriately balanced to be able to take part in a free-form fight without entering any shape of a godmode. If you end up in a freeform fight with me, please be willing to communicate oocly! If my moves confuse you, I will always be happy to explain.
I fully accept any type of injury as a part of consequences of consequences. I do not accept sudden kill-moves without prior ooc consent (so don't shoot my characters in the head kthx). I accept death when my characters can legitimately not make it out of a situation alive - but this is not a blessing for you to go on a random witch-hunt.
Miscellaneous: That wiki page is pure OOC knowledge unless your character specifically knows or learned about it.
Important: Communication is key. Repeat it like a mantra. I will not bite you for asking questions!
