- Arik (pronounced /'AH-rick'/) is an Auri mercenary of Xaela descent who arrived on Eorzea aboard one of the earliest ships carrying Othard refugees. As soon as he had stepped foot upon foreign ground, however, he made quick work in establishing himself as an eccentric warrior, drunkard, and renowned trouble maker-- a far cry in behavior to his Auri brethren (both Raen and Xaela alike)-- but a surprisingly skilled and effective sellsword all the same. While he had spent the first several months on Eorzean soil stubbornly working as a loner, actively refusing to work alongside any group that came his way, he nonetheless earned himself a bit of name among those interested in his field of work. Using the moniker of "Arik Nergui" (which translates to "Arik No-Name"), he rarely identifies himself as part of any tribe-- avoiding the subject like a terrible plague-- and tends to perpetuate a subtle air of mystery about himself, something that is purposely veiled beneath a boisterously brash and carefree front that only very few bother to see beyond.
Appearance & Personality
- There is no arguing that Arik is a big guy, even by Au Ra standards, as he carries a stature about himself that acts as a statement for his expertise in wielding massive, two-handed axes. Years spent on the front lines of various conflicts whilst brandishing such weapons has resulted in a strong, broad physique and an impressive menagerie of scars mottling tanned, ashy flesh at nearly every angle where various patches of his scales have been worn away and chipped from battle. He keeps his brown-blonde hair long, often too careless to consider cutting or styling it beyond a windswept quality and a few braids that manage to keep the bulk of it out of brightly colored yellow eyes. His scars provide an additional testament to his style of dress-- only rarely opting for heavy plate whenever a job calls for the extra protection, but otherwise preferring lighter fabrics and leathers which he finds to be cooler as well as easier to move in.
- Arik comes across as relatively friendly and boisterous, often carrying himself with a devil-may-cry attitude and a tendency toward either starting or somehow involving himself in trouble around every corner. He spends the majority of his free time drowning himself in liquor either in or nearby Taverns, making friendly acquaintances and otherwise coming across as a spontaneously lackadaisical sort who truly lives for the moment. Yet these first impressions are fickle at best, as the mercenary makes a point to keep people at arm's length. His careless behavior is really but a facade only very few are allowed to see beyond, used to conceal a sense of self-derision and guilt that seems to follow him wherever he goes. In addition to this, it doesn't take very long for those who encounter him to realize he has a rather short temper, especially in regards to certain touchy subjects. Though he may attempt to convince others that he is a self-absorbed, opportunistic sellsword, he is really fooling nobody more than himself. Ever since coming to Eorzea and eventually joining forces with Seren Blackbourne her friend, S'Kalkaya Raha, and a peculiar little Raen named Kagerou, it is clear that deep down he harbors an active desire to do right and to seek redemption for whatever trouble checkers his past... Though he'll never admit to it aloud.
