Alicia Thornwyn is a young Roegadyn woman who is training as a Conjurer. She is the daughter of a Hellsguard woman and a Sea Wolf man, her appearance leaning more towards that of her father. Currently she has taken up the 'hobby' of adventuring, her aim to explore Eorzea and give help where it's needed, while still practicing her Conjurer skills.
Birth Name: Inspiring Rose
Full Name: Alicia Thornwyn
Nicknames: Ali, Thorn
Pronunciation: Ah-lee-sha Thorn-ween
Height: Short for a Roegadyn, height totalling around 6'1".
Weight: Average for her race and height.
Body: Alicia's body lacks the defined muscle that many Roegadyn bodies carry. Though she is still tall and broad compared to the other races, when compared to her own kind she looks a little scrawny.
Hair: A light shade of pink that falls loosely down her back. She clips her fringe to one side of her face to keep it out of her eyes. It is usually brushed straight, though in the rain several strands turn curly, causing a messy look.
Eyes: Dark purple.
Skin: A pale blue colour, marking her as a Sea Wolf Roegadyn.
Clothing: Alicia is normally seen in light weight clothing. Robes, tunics and slacks are the types of things she often wears. Her tastes are simple, though she always wears two pieces of jewellery that look rather expensive - a golden ring on her ring finger, and a silver necklace.
Parents and Birth
Alicia's story begins with the meeting of Wishful Thorn, a Hellsguard mercenary woman, and Ahtmas Ahldberksyn, a Sea Wolf Captain.
Her parents originally met when Wishful Thorn was seeking work and she agreed to protect Ahtmas' crew on a trip to a set of unnamed islands. The trip took many months and, despite finding Ahtmas arrogant, rude and disgusting, his repeated attempts to lure Wishful Thorn into his bed ended up working. The two began what can only be described as a 'silent' relationship, where they neither spoke to each other or anyone else about their evening antics.
Despite the circumstances, both of them enjoyed their relationship greatly until Wishful Thorn discovered something that horrified her. After several days of confirming her fears, she realised that she had fallen pregnant with Ahtmas' child. She approached him in private and, after an incredibly brief and aggressive discussion, Ahtmas' ship began sailing back to Limsa Lominsa.
Upon arrival, Wishful Thorn left the ship without collecting her payment or sending her regards to the crew or it's Captain. With the little money she had left, she boarded an airship to the destination that would take her as far away from the city as possible - Gridania.
Several months later, Wishful Thorn had begun living in a small village located in the Twelveswood. The villagers were wary at first, viewing her as an outsider and doing their best to get her to leave. However, her sword skills and the help she gave around the village slowly turned their opinions of her. Though still not fully accepted, she was allowed to stay and began planning her new life here.
It was in this village that Wishful Thorn finally gave birth to a baby girl. At the same time, across Eorzea, Ahtmas Ahldberksyn was laying in his bed with a young Miqo'te lady, having forgotten all about the Hellsguard mercenary who was pregnant with his daughter.
"And what exactly are you good for, hm?" The gruff voice asked. It belonged to a large Roegadyn man, standing tall and wide. Shirtless, his pale blue skin was shown proudly to all working at the docks in Limsa Lominsa. He chuckled after he spoke, his youthful face expressing genuine amusement as his scruffy white hair waved in the soft sea breeze.
"Keeping people safe. It's what I do, 'Captain'." The companion replied. Another Roegadyn, though this time a female. She was a Hellsguard, her skin a dark red and her hair a deep, dark purple. It was cut quite short, giving her quite the masculine look, and the scowl on her face only added to that.
"Ha! Very well. You're aware of the pay, yes? It isn't the best, love. Can I have your name? I'm Ahtmas Ahldberksyn, but most just call me Aht these days." The man grinned at her as he spoke, showing his teeth. She wasn't sure why, but the image unsettled her slightly.
"Wishful Thorn. Most just call me Thorn. How does the payment work? Half up front, half after we're done?" She spoke quickly, her voice almost monotone. She had practice with this, doing her best to avoid using a tone. People could discern emotions from tone, and for her it was a weakness.
"Aye, Thorn. That's how it works. If you're happy we'll be leaving in an hour. Have I got your sword with my crew?"
"You have, Captain." She nodded as she spoke, and before either of them said another word she had walked away. Ahtmas stared at the woman, grinning once more and showing his teeth as a drunken Hyur crew member stumbled over to him. The Roegadyn looked down at his new companion, wrinkling his nose as the smell of ale and an unwashed body swarmed over him.
"'Ey boss! That your new piece for the night!? Yeah!?"
Ahtmas broke into a roar of laughter, swinging his arm and aggressively patting the Hyur on the back.
"That she is, old friend. That she is. Maybe for more than just one night though, eh?"
