A Bard in her free time and a Free Paladin every other hour, Alyss goes to great lengths to keep those she holds dearly safe. As a Free Paladin, Alyss is well versed in martial and Gladitorial combat, and would rather see herself get hurt than anyone else. Those whom she trusts dearly are granted a personal linkpearl with which they may reach her at any time, and she will do everything in her power to answer those calls no matter the time nor place. Although she tries to do numerous other things, Alyss finds herself drawn to the more simple styles of combat, and has only a limited proficiency with Magic through being a Paladin. She is highly organized and militaristic, having served in the Brass Blades for two years before becoming a Sultansworn, and only recently became a free Paladin. She has a House in the Goblet which doubles as an Office for people to come in and recruit her services, though her fee is fairly high at 100,000 Gil a day. Those whom have the linkpearl in her name, however, are waived the fee and allowed to ask her services at any time.
Demeanor: Alyss is highly militaristic and organized, keeping herself and her places of residence in high order. She values the control she has over these things, as many things in her life have been ripped from her without her ability to stop them. Although she has a big heart, and will go out of her way to help others, behind closed doors she weeps for her fallen comrades and loses her ability to keep a stoic face; the moment she steps back outside, though, her demeanor returns to normal. Although it's rare for Alyss to show emotion in public, she is actually quite an emotional person and simply fights to keep it as under wraps as she can, though very high-tense situations do often reveal her true nature.
Nature: A highly emotional and standard Eorzean girl, Alyss fights with her nature at every turn to keep it under wraps. She enjoys life, and enjoys helping others, but finds herself hormonal and crazy at random intervals where she needs to cry or scream. Only those whom she trusts dearly have ever seen her true nature, and given the circumstances which led to her Husband's death, she doesn't trust as easily any more. When she performs as a Bard, she often uses it as an outlet for her emotional needs, enjoying the music both as she plays it and in her head while she's playing it.
Trope: Action Girl, Addiction Displacement, Being Personal Isn't Professional, Beneath the Mask, Berserk Button, Chronic Hero Syndrome, Creature of Habit, Crowd Pleasure, Cuteness Proximity, Everybody Smokes, Eyepatch of Power, Fearless Fool, Honor Before Reason, Lady of War, Lawful Neutral, Lethal Chef, Martyr Without a Cause, Misery Builds Character, No Place for a Warrior (Circumvented, she's getting better at it but still feels uncomfortable), Not so Stoic, Smitten Teenage Girl, Something About a Rose, The Paladin,
Habits: Alyss enjoys the casual cigar, has a problem with gambling, cannot at all hold her liquor and often ends up in a drunken stupor after a single shot of Whiskey, and plays her harp to calm herself when she gets emotional, sometimes even losing herself in her music.
Common Appearance: With soft, pale skin and bright orange hair framing her face, Alyss has a very feminine appearance that she has, admittedly, used more than once to get what she needed accomplished. With white eyes and blue scales, including her horns and tail, seeing that she's an Au Ra is not very difficult, though some are thrown off by her pale skin and name. As short as a Xaelan Au'Ra can be, Alyss stands at 4'9.5" and weighs only 120lbs, most of which is musicle.
Scars & Markings: Wearing a black bandanna to cover her left eye, Alyss is nearly fully clothed with only few parts of her body exposed, all of which seem to be pristine, though her fingers are scratched with knicks from combat and there are a few pale scars on her face. Her greatest shame, however, is the large scar on her chest from her near-death experience two years ago.
Voice: Atypically for an Au Ra, Alyss speaks in a soft but stern voice with a standard Eorzean accent. She attributes this to having been raised in Eorzea despite Au Ra not being well known until the recent Astral Era, as she was raised in a town that few have ever heard of by Eorzans, hence her name. Alyss typically tries to pronounce words correctly, but in highly emotional times can be found to shorten her words, using contractions and sometimes just dropping entire syllables just to get her point across.
Clothing: As a Paladin, Alyss normally presents with a long white coat and fingerless white gloves, dark red pants and white boots. Though her sword is proudly displayed at her hip, she is never seen with an actual shield which leads some to believe she doesn't use one at all. Finally, Alyss wears a black bandanna covering her left eye, though she never answers questions about it truthfully, and always seems to make up a different story every time she's asked about it. Although hidden by her gloves, Alyss also wears an Eternity Ring on her left hand, and doesn't like to answer questions about ``that`` either, though mostly because she still misses her now-deceased Husband, Siegfried.
