Character

Just a common sellsword you'd see flooding Ul'dah everyday. Often found himself without a job, he yet carry himself with determination and somewhat a sense of purpose.

Appearance

Of average Miqo'te height, nothing is too special about this one except few times when you look at his yellow eyes, you'd notice some sort of melancholy that is quickly replaced with a tinge of sharpness when he knows you are noticing.

Born with crimson hair and yellow eyes, he always kept it trimmed in a simple, modest way. His face is clear of any scars, sometimes people mistaken him for a new apprentice in the way of the sword. Always have a pair of thin dagger hidden somewhere on his person.

Personality

Spent most of his year in a remote island near bronze lake, he rarely have social encounter thus he can be awkward when in the company of people.

Strict discipline and the virtue of the ten oath of honor instill in him a sense of righteousness. Often time he'd rather go hungry rather than accepting a job that conflict against his principle.

His adage is "Even in their most powerless state, a life is not without meaning" Despite all of this, he is not scared or hesitate to dirty his hand with the blood of his enemy.

Combat

Somewhat good skills with a sword and a shield but his true nature is a Shinobi.

General

Frequents the quick sand in-between work. Would just sit on one corner of the bar while looking at the wall. Occasionally looking at Horolog (clock) for his appointed time.

Friends

  • X'Zanza Yamah -

Alastor met her one day, after following a scent of baked cookie across Ul'dah. Daughter of the Lyx tribe, She can be counted amongst the first he talked with and counted as a friend in his life as a drifter and a sellsword.
The cheerful Miqo'te share the same liking of sweet as him and often they'd be found sitting on a bench in front of Quick Sand, enjoying a bag (or two, or uhh...three) of cookies. Other times they'd enjoy the well kept secret of the coffin and coffer : Flan pudding.
After being together for a while, he found himself falling in love with her. Her kindness and her innocent ways opened himself and teached him many things.
