Ariuna Goro is an Au Ra of the Xaela clan, and a member of the nomadic Goro tribe. Developing fewer scales or obviously-Xaela features than most of her tribe (not to mention, being very small), she was often told growing up how she'd fit into Eorzean society better than her tribesmen. Her head full of dreams about the world outside Azim Steppe, she found herself frustrated with her tribe's hostility towards outsiders. Once she came of age and was married to her husband Batu (a horse, as is tradition for the Goro clan, who view horses as perfect beings), she set off to become an adventurer, wanting to see the world in a way she couldn't traveling the Steppe with an insulated tribe of nomads. Feeling self-conscious about her size, and wanting to protect her beloved husband from harm, she committed herself to the way of the Gladiator.
At 4'9" (146 cm), Ariuna cuts a small figure even by Auri standards. She has long brown hair, and brown eyes. Despite being a Gladiator, her build is on the softer side, struggling to put on much in the way of muscle. She's quite curvy for an Auri girl, being about as top-heavy as her kind get. Her Xaela traits are somewhat subtle, having fewer scales than many of her breatheren, as well as Hyur-like eyes and complexion. The fashion of the city-states is still a bit of a mystery for her, coming from the more utilitarian nomadic culture of the Goro tribe, and is still somewhat prone to misunderstanding what is considered appropriate or attractive casualwear.
Sheltered as she was by the tribe's insular nature, Ariuna can seem a touch dense or slow to catch on. She can also be more blunt than Eorzeans like, though she works to change that. Despite currently traveling apart from her tribe, she's still a firm believer in their beliefs and ways, and can speak of strange or taboo things with an unexpected and disarming innocence expect. But Ariuna is quickly learning that most in Eorzea react negatively to her tribe's practices and beliefs, and so can be a bit hesitant to discuss them with strangers. She's still very green to adventuring, but throws herself into every expedition with earnestness and eagerness!
