Appearance & Personality

Tall (6'10"), lithe, and dark-skinned, Ariuq Adarkim would seem as a living shadow…were it not for the slight limp that accompanies each step and the shining white of the Xaela’s irises. If performing field research, the Auri man can be seen dressed in a heavy, padded coat with armored greaves and gauntlets, however he generally prefers a lighter dress with a loose shirt and long boots. No matter his dress, the scholar’s clothing seems to hump unnaturally at both his left shoulder and his right hip, the slight protrusions signifying the location of sturdy leather braces providing support to old injuries. Though he loathes utilizing one, a narrow cane may be clutched in his right hand, metal tip pressing against the ground to sound out the rhythm of his steps.
Long, sable hair streaks down from the Au Ra’s head to just brush against the top of his shoulders, several dark locks tucked behind sweeping horns that end in sharp tips both in front and behind. His right horn appears to have a small groove running along the outside of the hard material in a perfectly straight line from tip to tip. Black scales line his jawline, collar, and pointed chin, his angular features generally pulled tight with his brow furrowed inward.
Thin cords of muscle run along his arms and chest, the lack of body fat highlighting the thin lines that the Xaela’s frame seems to follow. A line of scales trail up his spine before blossoming across his upper back, a similar pattern repeated on the Au Ra’s chest. The scales resting overtop his left shoulder and right hip are broken and mangled, jagged edges protruding slightly upwards. A small, round scar can be found on the underside of his left wrist, the smooth, shining tissue reaching up to his palm. The digits of his hands are long and thin, more than a few callouses dotting the otherwise smooth palms.
Much like the rest of the scholar, Ariuq’s tail is long, narrow, and scaled, the length of the appendage dipping down well below his knees and giving a slight sway as each step carries him along. If sitting, the wide spade at the end of his tail is generally found lying flat against his right leg, a light twitch shaking through its length every so often.
The Au Ra tends to keep himself calm and collected, though anything inducing enough intrigue or anger can shake loose this façade to reveal the impulsive nature beneath. He enjoys talking, especially about his research or philosophy, his voice a bass-filled rumble as it tends to speak at lengths perhaps greater than needed. When unsure, the muscles of his jawline tend to pull tight as his teeth grind together softly, the erratic dance of his pupils a sure sign that his mind is turning beneath the light of his eyes.

Some of these rumors are untrue or are greatly exaggerated. Please feel free to add your own rumors under PC!

◢ Common Rumors (Easily overheard)
Guy'll talk your ears off if you get him started, his fancy diction don't help either.
I saw him testing some mask of his, let a damn Morbol breathe all over him and ended up sick for days. Anyone who would do that is more fool than genius, I'd say.
Don't expect much charity from the Au Ra, once saw him put a group of orphans in Ul'dah to work gathering materials for him before he paid for their meals.
◢ Moderate Rumors (Moderately difficult to overhear)
Now I don't know much 'bout them Xaela tribes, but I would bet he ain't actually one of the Adarkim, least not originally.
Oh he'll act all calm an' shit, but just get him ruffled up about the Allagans and watch the feathers fly. Hell, I bet his even demeanor s'all just an act, if you ask me.
◢ Rare Rumors (Very difficult or rarely overheard)
Brains? Sure, but you'll find me damned if the lizard isn't naive as a newborn. Way too easy a mark!

Culgrim Darkstorm : Acquaintance
"He is a beast guarding his pack: impressive and ferocious, but I often wonder if even he himself knows what he desires from this world."
