CURRENT MAINS - Paladin | Red Mage

Paladin - Desiring to follow in his father's footsteps, Alexander went through the path of a Gladiator, took up some conjury and some maruading, and later would acquire the profession of Paladin, his very first job class...

Thaumaturge - His dad oftentimes talked about the powers of magic the Black Mages wield every time he is accompanied in a party with one or more of them. This piqued Alexander's interest when he happened upon the Thaumaturge's guild...

Pugilist - The ability to fight in unarmed combat excites him... Not to mention the benefits over having to fight without a weapon should it come to it... Not that he would prefer if such a scenario were to occur but you never know what dangers the unknown can bring...

Rogue - He'd prefer his blades to be... longer. Still, the idea to mix together sword-fighting and unarmed combat sounded appealing to him... Plus, two blades has its advantage than with one.

Conjurer - Since his mother was a healer, he figured that such conjury would be useful in mending any would-be allies of his...

Arcanist - Knowledge can prove useful... and the more one knows, the better they can apply that knowledge in whatever craft they choose... Crafts such as in fighting.

Red Mage - With the ability to combine swordsmanship with red magic that combines black and white magic AND is able to revitalize his companions... it's practically everything he ever wanted to do.

Samurai - To enhance his swordplay and his discipline in swordsmanship... Plus it looks cool!

Mother: Nysa Gomez, Midlander Hyur, White Mage - A generous soul which showed through her actions.

Xenedra Ambreaus - A Seeker Miqo'te bard who was one of the performers at the celebration of Halone. He could not completely partake in the discussion regarding the relationship between Oschon and Halone with her and her peers when duty called him to another place...

Sigrunne Ascaelle - An Elezen Coerthan knight who enlisted him and his fellow comrades in the forming of the Cerulean Vigil.

Amara Elisse - A Hyur Thaumaturge whom he met during the pilgrimage of Halone. After she shared a particular secret with him, Alexander intends to do what he can to help her... Just as his parents would help others... Considering how she seemingly feels for him, though, he can't help but take a bit of liking to her... She even went as far as to address him as her hero. Nevertheless, he looks forward to any further encounters with her...
Fortunately, the reunion was more sweet than it was bitter. Though Alexander was unable to keep his promise to Amara, no ill feelings were burden between the two and only time will tell what will come from it...
L'poppi Arhien - A dark-skinned Seeker Miqo'te that he met one night at the Quicksand while in the company of the Cerulean Vigil. Alexander, that same night, was a target between her and Khuj'a's teasings, which revealed his flustered nature. It didn't helped, even, when the two proclaimed themselves as his wing-man to find his significant other. Nonetheless, he doesn't seem too cross with their attempts... He also already addressed that he finds Poppi to be beautiful, yet he even stated that he doesn't mind her "flatness" despite his unreserved reveal over his want for a well-endowed bust on a woman (according to one of his answers when he was interrogated over what he desires for in this romantic partner of his...)
Khuj'a Binbotaj - A Miqo'te healer who is part of the Cerulean Vigil as Alexander. His cheerfulness and outgoing social attitude was quickly noted, especially during one night when the Vigils stopped by at the Quicksand.

L'Seoira Runja - A female Miqo'te that she met one day while lingering around in the streets of Ul'dath. He approached her, after he excused himself from conversing with some members from the Ceruleans, to check up on her only to confirm of her feeling of isolation and her anxiety. Relating to her dilemma, he invited her over to converse with his other members before she had to depart on her way. Besides that the members that were with him suspect him of doing so out of interest for her than of an altruistic nature, he looks forward to meeting with her again and take up her offer of tea...
Rhyllona Mohtfystwyn - A Rogadyn scholar who seeks to increase her knowledge in the experimentation of aetherial uses. At first, Alexander was suspicious regarding her mention of testing on live test subjects in her experiments with aether, yet learned that she seeks to use them for a more beneficial use even if her attitude is, "By any means necessary." He looks forward in trying to have Khuj'a and Rhyllona to meet as fellow scholars...
Gust Viper - A female highlander Warrior who tricked Alexander to the point where he could have been murdered, yet claimed that she was not going to. Though she warns Alexander not to trust people so easily and that "no one needed a second chance with him," Alexander threatened that he hopes that their paths do not cross again with her intending to kill him.... or else he will be the one to cut her down...

History/Timeline

In his younger days, he was a particularly introverted boy who, yet, longed to make friends with the other children. At first, he did manage to, but he finds himself getting frustrated at times, leading him to take it out on the others. However, due the guidance of his nurturing mother and his chivalrous father, the boy found himself to be of error and he sought to correct himself of it.

Though his mother had to stop adventuring with Farren, she and her son still traveled together with him since his endeavors with the Adventurer's guild helped provided them to make a living while his mother made her own by tending to the injured. This frustrated him because he could not apply himself to recreate those friendships... Still, watching the grateful patients his mother tends to and the jolly environment and mood his father brings with him among company, a desire to bring such happiness and hope to himself and to others grew within himself. It filled him with hope and his frustrations are sated as he grows more in maturity...

Then grave news came of Farren's fate of an incident that occurred during a dungeon run with his group. Rather than retreating to himself and leaving his mother alone to her grief, Alexander did his part to try to help his mother with her patients instead. He resolves that while he still wishes for companionship and the experiences that adventuring brought, he also decides to do this for his own happiness. This resolution was also requested from his mother, who was touched by Alexander's behavior, but didn't wish for him to deprived himself of the companionship that he could not obtain because of their travels...

Alexander became of age to go out on his own to Eorzea, looking to be an adventurer like his father, but making his own name and his own personal experiences and memories for himself. His destination is Ul'dath, where his father first started in his profession as a Paladin...

Journal Log

Log #1: The freelancing adventurer seems to be progressing decently in his endeavors with the adventurer's guild. Taking up many requests have been demanding, but he cannot deny that the work and effort has been making him stronger and stronger... But as he progressed, doubt was settling in little by little... Once or twice, he would find himself sighing, as if the effort was proving to be discouraging...

But it was not because of his personal progress, no. Why, with him granted permission to venture into other city-states and learning of new battle crafts to take up and advance his abilities, it was hardly all in vain.... No... See, among the mass amount of people that were present in Ul'dath, the greenhorn adventurer found himself discouraged... It felt like his younger days when he could not succeed in instigating and communicating with people so as to develop acquaintanceship with individuals... especially those who are proactive adventurers...

Besides the embarrassment of his rewarded equipment presented in a way that they mismatched together and having no known way to resolve this fashion dilemma (though he did not consider himself fashion-minded), he found himself to be intimidated by the large number of people, a feeling of which he did not expect to feel. Surely, there are likely to be those who would welcome anyone, old or new, just from a simple greeting, those who were easygoing and approachable... But how to begin? What could he say afterwards to keep the exchange alive and establish a meaningful communication? On other note, he has noted, during his times out in the fields of Eorzea, that there are, indeed, many strong adventurers out there... What with powerful armor and weapons or unique sets of clothing and gear as well as a number of skills and crafts both for battle and for miscellaneous desires and whims... Most exceptionally, these well-fitted individuals had well-fitted allies as well... and he has observed and noted a few who seem to be in good-standings with each other... Whether the way that they communicated to each other freely and affectionately... or how they support one another during unfortunate circumstances...

He was not quite successful, in his youth, with establishing such connections with others... Will he, too, be able to make friends as his parents have, or will he end up in this world alone?...

Though as doubt ensnares and entangles his mind and resolve with its thorns of discouragement, Alexander decides that he must press forward in his 'ventures... Maybe, in due time, things will change for the better...

Log #2: Word spread of a pilgrimage in honor of Halone the Fury. Having heard of a technique named "Rage of Halone" from his Paladin father and those who are in know of it, as well as Oschon, his favored deity, who was considered a close friend of Halone, he decided to take it upon himself participate in the celebration and learn more of Halone. The trip was considered perilous due to his current abilities, but thank the Twelve that he met upon an individual named Jancis, who tended to escorting him to the location beforehand. He would learned, later on, that this same individual who helped him was actually one of the leaders leading the celebration...

He felt slightly chilly in his armor and had taken to wearing his helmet despite his preference not to for the cold in Mor Dhorna. Nonetheless, he kept to the path with the other pilgrims up to their intended location. There, much songs and tales and poems were spoken and Alexander learned a lot of Halone, even coming to respect her more than he ever did before. So, when time came for those who were willing to receive her blessings by one of the priests or priestess or those willing to speak their mind to Halone's Stone, he decided upon receiving Halone's blessing and performing the latter. On a whim, in an effort to throw himself entirely into this act, he walked up to the chilling water and knelt down to his knees. Trying his best to distract himself from the cold, he proceeded to share some words to Halone... Of learning more of her... of his newfound respect for her... and of wishing her to find favor in his efforts:

"...May your Fury be imbued into my sword... and your shield empowering my own to protect those that I care and love and those whom I accompany with in my adventures...."

At one point, he was discussing with one of the bards that performed at the celebration regarding the relationship between Oschon and Halone before they were, then, joined by one and two more. However, duty called him, away, much to his reluctance to leave company, to the place of Camp Dragonhead, where the company of the Cerulean Vigil was formed and founded... Hoping that Halone will favor his fights and his efforts, joining the cause of the Cerulean Vigil who desires to bring change to their homelands, and, most importantly to him, having developed many acquaintances in one day, Alexander's resolve to better himself was renewed as he continues onward with his duties...

Log #3: The more the growing Gladiator achieved further into his duties, the more that doubt and anxiety creep into him. Even as success would be reaped in his path, Alexander succumbed into his angst. Briefly, he came across an armor that forced him to cover his face despite his preference to let his face be shown and known to all. Nonetheless, he wore it even though he couldn't quite project his voice well under the helm...

So, during a mission with the Cerulean Vigil to infiltrate an Amalj'aa encampment, Alexander spoke little due to both his helm situation and his angst. However, though the mission was a success, he felt that he could've done more. A moment had occurred where the party leader leading the infiltration had requested him to act... To which the Midlander Hyur failed to accomplish. Though he was not blamed nor claimed to not have done his part... He knew that he could be so much better....

He had allowed his emotions to cloud his judgement... His allies are, certainly well-off enough that they are capable enough to do what must be done... But what if his hesitation were to cost the mission severely? What if his faltering could be what caused an operation to fall apart, especially if the consequences involved the loss of a life or two?

He can't afford that... He had to get stronger... With or without anyone...

Continuing with his duties, he gained admission to the Order of the Twin Adders Grand Company and acquired his own Chocobo mount. He was more moved with this grand company, compared to the others, due to the emphasis of harmony and the desire to work together as one...

So when the Gladiator finally became a Paladin... He understood what Sigrunne told him... He must allow himself to trust in his allies... And so, in turn, he will do what he can... so that others may come to trust him... and to secure that trust. And he will gained what he can, as a Paladin, to obtain the means to fight and protect those that he cares and loves...

Log #4: The Paladin have been making progress, venturing further and further into tougher areas and fights. However, his anxieties followed him all the way through. He found himself becoming more frustrated and he would reject even help from the Vigils. In one of those nights, he allowed himself to risk putting strain on his relations with the Vigils... The next, he found himself left to himself... Though he was not kicked from the Vigils, the conflict led him to think to himself...

Alexander wanted to be as successful as his parents... So much that he believed himself capable of making a gradually strong presence, impressing his peers and, thus, gain renown so early and have it grow so that others may know of his 'ventures. Most of all, he wanted to make his presence known as an individual who was driven and hard-working, kind, and seen as one who bears great potential.. One who is able to do well throughout all of his duties...

It was not his goal that had caused him frustration... It was his mindset...

He would get frustrated and would not be satisfied for having failed the first few times.... Considering that he will one day have to train himself to perform his duties better, but instead focuses on the rest of his duties to at least progress further and forward. He would not ask for help or would be hesitant to outright accept it not because he does not desire the support of his comrades, for he values it strongly. It was pride...He wanted to be able to be able to pull his own weight, not to come off as someone who was not strong enough to do things by himself, whereas if he were to perform the feat, it may even impress. This only serve, however, to provide hardship for himself and for those who truly mean well in supporting him...

He did not want to lose them... He had to make a decision... One that is not just for the sake of his comrades and all those after so that they may not find him hard to deal with... But for himself... For he finds and thinks that though he possess potential... He thinks himself not good enough. He feels that he had to get better and catch up with those who are further ahead in their duties than he... So that he may be at a better position to help them as the Vigils and those he had met have helped him. People who have been awesome. People who were praised for being hard-working and kind...Praises that he desired..... The Hyur Paladin had become envious... That, too, had given him hardship.

For his sake and for others... He had to make a decision... For though he still had his comrades... He cannot let them down...


Log #5: Alexander Gomez, the Paladin Midlander Hyur, continued with his duties tirelessly, distraught with a wanting to apply the advises and suggestions given to him by his peers. He was beginning to learn how to seek and accept help with stride. A second missive with the Vigils turned out successful, allowing him to personally redeem himself from his performance in his first missive with the Cerulean Vigils. Everyone had done a job well done, including some of the new recruits that participated.

Afterwards, two more duties had him accompanied with some of the Vigil members in the first one, and with other adventurers in the second. Both, as well, had a positive turn out, including the second one. Though he did not do well the first few times, he maintained his composure like the rest of his allies and that finally bore fruit when one more attempt proved to be the charm that would complete their duty.

He was beginning to feel humbled... Ever since he made out for the world of Eorzea by himself... In only a few weeks... It has changed him...

His allies trust him... He knows this no matter what... He will do what he can for his sake and for theirs... To lend his strength to them... and learn to appreciate himself... To be the man that he envisions himself to be... and do right to his parents' reputation and succeeding them.


Log #6: Dammit! How could he have let this happened?....

At first, an outing with Avalyn, Khuj'a, and a new acquaintance that Avalyn met named Brandon, turned out in an unfortunate way that resulted in all involved parties to depart their separate ways. Frustrated, he ventured out for a walk to Aleport in hopes for the salty scent to distract him and calm him down. He stopped by at a bar at the town and, from there, made acquaintance with a Roegadyn scholar named Rhyllona. The conversation was mentally stimulating regarding about aether, its potential to be used without limits, and the possibility of it being used to help a void-touched individual that Alexander knew. However, the Hyur Paladin didn't have much update regarding that scenario even though the topic instill an interest into the scholar...

To celebrate their new acquaintanceship, they returned to the bar for a drink, then accompanied by a random midlander stranger named Kurt. A female Highlander than joined, who claimed to have been 'shortchanged' Alexander, under the influence of Rhy's personal (strong) drink by just one cup, made himself the highlander's focus, leading her to keep him company while the other two had departed by then...

Gust, the highlander, conversed with the slightly drunk midlander when she made a offer that had Alexander simply go along and accept it...

...leaving him outside of Aleport, in only his underwear with his sword and shield drawn towards the axe-wielder highlander, who seemed intent to strike him down...

Gust, however, claimed that she was not going to kill hi, but advised him not to trust people so easily. Alexander tried to keep her around, interrogating her with her reasons for picking him out. This was in futility as Alexander was merely acting in his frustration for having his life threatened... and obviously did not appreciate being played a fool... Even if he was aware of his foolishness despite his current state of drunken mind....

Even so.... How could he have let this happened? ....Will his trust in others ever be the same again?...

Log #7: I can't let go of these memories even if I wanted to... The land of Eorzea... I've been away for so long. Even writing here feels foreign to me. As if for the first time... I've been meaning to come back but... All I remember was just feeling... lost. I felt adrift and I've forgotten my purpose for such a long time. Yet at least I had enough sense to know that it has been too long that I've been away. Rather than returning to find my mother, I merely lived alone, isolated in a village which still receives it's fair share of exports and imports... Basically, it was away from the Eorzea yet connected enough that one can still partake in the essentials of food and drinks....

I would often sleep for long periods of time... Only to rise from bed when the memories of Eorzea keep me from sleeping. It is not one full of only bad memories but it is a mixture of both. The light and dark side of my experiences that I left behind since my latest mission. I was not even heard of from the ones that took me out to these missions. I will have to face them if I ever return again.

Yes... This feeling had been growing in me the longer I stay here... I can now say this with my mind and my soul somewhat clearer nowadays...

I want to go back... I'm not finished yet with my dream...

Log #8: There is a lot to be done since my returned to Eorzea. I can see that it is slightly different but it is still the same Eorzea that I have to be familiar with. Nonetheless, I am very far behind in my duties.... Additionally, I feel very disconnected... I do hope that I will get to interact with the others soon...

I met with Amara... I was worried that things would... not go so well but, alas, the reunion was more sweet than it was bitter... Even though I failed to keep my promise... But I think our exchange went well. If I can keep this up... then maybe everything else will turn out alright...

I must continue to do my best!

Log #9: Been a while since I came here... Eorzea's a bit different but it's still the same through it's core... The sights and the people, including the ladies, are just as lovely as always. It may sound creepy but I really don't mean it that way...

Anyway, doesn't seem like I'm remembered but it's been years. I've probably forgotten people too and how to fight. Thankfully, upon returning to Ul'dath, I've heard of a hall that allows new and returning adventurer's to enlist for combat training. Felt good to get a bit of my bearings back.

Right then... Deep breaths... Moving forward. You can do this Alexander... Stay calm.

Log #10: I arrived at the Wayfarer's rest thinking today was the event...

Nope.

My genius self was a day too early for the event. Instead, I ended up interacting with the nice people who resided at the Rest. Apparently, they're known not only for the event they're having but also as a place for people to take a respite at or to stay over for the night or have a drink or two. I took up their offer for the respite since I was rushing thinking I was running late and had to find something to dye my clothes with (Not really a fan of red but it's the way to indicate whom I'm seeking).... So I was a little flustered and winded basically.

Can't say it was all bad at least. I built up familiarity with both the place and the wayfarer members. I didn't get to talk much with the Miqo'te there since he had to take care of some business... The other two were sisters.... Mm, half sisters really. One was a pirate and the other was...raised by Slyphs I believe.... I still can't believe I manage to keep calm without fighting with myself not to stare at their chest due to the clothes they were wearing. Their clothes wasn't the problem, it's not that they were skimpy but... it has a particular jacket and top combination that exposes off the cleavage.... That's all I'll write about that...

Least now I just gotta make sure to make it to the event on time...


'Log #11: Been a while since I made another log...

I've been trying to get back with my duties after.... who knows how many days I've been away. Time flies and all. Met one individual who started teaching me the ways of a Red Mage and another who came from another land that started teaching me the ways of the Samurai. And upon arriving at Ishgard, yet another who started teaching me the ways of a Dark Knight. With these new professions, I hope to make some leeway back to adventuring full force...
