General Information
"What do you need of me?"
Hair & Eyes
Alessia's black, with violet highlights, hair is shoulder length and loose, uneven but not unkempt.Her eyes are a deep amethyst.
Physique & Markings
Alessia has spent the entirety of her life fighting or training to fight. As such, she is in perfect shape for fighting. Her body is powerfully muscled despite her small stature, wiry but not unfeminine. Her bust is mid sized, large enough to avoid subconscious feelings of inadequacy, but small enough that they do not bring any difficulties into combat. She bares numerous tattoos and scars, legacies of both her past as a Resistance member and as an Adventurer. Most obvious are the pseudo-tribal tattoos around her eyes./div>
Hygiene & Attire
Having spent the better part of her life as a Resistance Fighter, she neither needed nor was inclined to spend a great deal of time on her appearence. However, she does very much enjoy the results of beautifying herself on occasion when it is called for. That being when she seeks the company of beautiful maidens.
Aessia is almost always wearing armor of some kind, predominantly medium or heavy armor to suit her preferred styles of combat. She also prefers to wear darker colors, trending heavily towards black and crimson. She will occasionally wear casual clothes as well, but given that her early life was dominated by being ever-prepared for an Imperial raid, she only does so in limited and highly secured locations.
Psychological Profile
Alessia is a difficult individual to get a precise understanding off without several exposures. Due to the slaughter of her family and the vast majortiy of her comrades when their particular Resistance group was annihilated by The Skulls, she has a rather severe case of Survival's Guilt. While she is not suicidal per se, and quite capable of affection and even love for others, she is slow to invest herself in others for fear of failing them as well.
Alaisia’s voice is husky and low, her rare humour hidden within an even and steady tone. [Jennifer Hale aka Commander Shepard]
Philosophy & Mannerisms
Alessia believes that, due to her weakness, her family and friends were slaughtered. As such, she has traveled much of the world in an effort to grow stronger and redeem herself by helping to liberate her homeland. Most recently, she has settled in Kugane to study the ways of the Samurai. While she seeks only to learn their blade-arts, she may just find peace through her efforts.
● Chocolate. She adores it. It’s an addiction, really.
● Being around those that she trusts.
● Ala Mhigo
● Those who fight for what they believe in
● Kugane
● Pie of any kind
● The Empire
● Those who betray their ideals
● Cowards and Deserters. If you can’t handle fighting, don’t join up. She’ll kill you if she sees you abandoning your comrades.
● Combat, specifically the techniques of the Warrior and the Samurai
● Dancing
● She is extremely aware of her surroundings.
● She is fairly skilled in cooking and craftsmanship due to the self-reliant nature of the Resistance fighter's life.
● She is a competent healer for the same reason

Non-Combat Abilities
(Passive) The Mourner: Alessia has lost everyone and everything she has ever loved. While she is not broken, she is not unscathed by these massive blows to her spirit. She is often solemn and silent, slow to speak without cause, especially in public..
Kinesthesia and Situational Awareness: Alaisia learns by doing, which is how she is able to fight in so many different ways. While she enjoys reading, she has significant difficulty learning in this way. She is also what some might call paranoid, thought she prefers to think of it as high situational awareness and cautionary attitude.
Combat Abilities
(Passive)Mistress of War Alaisia has dedicated her entire life to fighting and learned ever method of waging war that she could get her hands on. While most are only middling in skill, she nonetheless is an extremely experienced fighter with a significantly larger skillset than those that focus their efforts on a single discipline.
Sword and Shield Alaisia will greatly enhance her speed, essentially teleporting herself to a fixed point to either attack or defend a targeted individual. Can only be used very rarely due to potential for disoriantetion and the not-insignificant aetherial cost.
Voice of the Damned: Alaisia focuses her aether to her vocal cords and lets lose a high-pitched shrieking sound that is severely debilitating and disorienting to those in ear shot. Given that it effects ANYONE in audible range, it cannot be used with allies except in the most dire of circumstances.
Unleash: Alaisia’s aether erupts from the ground around him in a circle, spiked and hardened to a point to strike at the enemy. Only used if she is surrounded by at least four opponents.
Shatterpoint: Alaisia tends to focus on placing significant strength behind her blows while targeting certain points of her enemy or the landscape. These blows, while powerful, are ungainly. They often miss with devastating results to whatever they ultimately hit
(Limit Break)Deathseeker: When the battle turns grim and defeat is imminent, when a hero becomes so inspired they push beyond their boundaries, when a long slumbering power is awoken, a person's Limit Break is revealed. Alaisia trades damage now for damage later, significantly increasing her physical abilities (speed, strength, etc.) while damaging her muscles severely. If she failed to defeat her opponent within a short time frame of activation, she would be overwhelmed by pain and weakness, becoming utterly helpless.

Relationship Status Legend

Astrelle De'bayle, . ( ) - Alaisia's Savior
Character's Thoughts: "I owe her everything and more."
It is only through Astrelle that Alaisia is still alive, just as Alaisia is the reason Astrelle is still alive. It is through Astrelle that Alaisia found her new philosophy of life in serving a higher, more noble purpose than simple warfare. It is Astrelle's stories that shaped Alaisia into who she is now, and it is for Astrelle's sake that Alaisia came to Eorzea. The Xaela would do anything the Elezen asked of her without hesitation.

NPC Rumors

Some of these rumors are untrue, speculation, or are greatly exaggerated.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard. Use these freely!
"I heard she's obsessed with chocolate. Utterly obsessed." — Random Merchant.
"She loves a good fight, that one! Never starts 'em, never takes 'em to far, but she loves 'em all the same." — Exasperated City Guard.
◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!
"I heard she's actually a real big softy. Loves the kids, rescues the damsels, the whole knight-in-shining-armor deal. Minus the shining armor, of course. She prefers black." — Grand Company Fighter.
"I heard that she was looking for someone, some Elezen lass. Wonder if they ever found on another..." — Tavern Keeper.
◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely overheard. Please ask before using!
"According to the dockhands, the Dotharl tribe has a real big beef with her. Kill on sight, apparently. Best to avoid the area if they get into it." — Seafaring Merchants.
"Some people say she's lookin' for redemption. For what, who can say, but I bet it was some real dark stuff." — Adventurer.
PC Rumors

Feel free to add your own rumors to this section.

◢ Player Character Rumors - Some of these are more rare than others!
"She is--first and foremost--my friend. While I cannot always offer her what she wishes or indulge her quirky sense of humor (at least I believe it to be humor), we owe each other our lives. There is much to be said in that alone." — Astrelle De'bayle.
"Rumor" — Rumormonger.

RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play almost any kind of RP. Anything with permanent, IC effects must be cleared with me first. .
Ask about any sort of ERP or long-term IC effects. .
I won't play anything I don't want to! .
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.

There is a lot of information on this character wiki, but it is by no means completely comprehensive. There are chunks of backstory that are left intentionally vague so that details can be later added as developed through creative writing or in role-play revelation. Feel free to use Common or Uncommon rumors freely, if you want to use a Rare Rumor as a plot hook or to spark RP, I would ask that you send me a tell first, to make certain it's alright.
