Basic OOC Info

"Bedouin; desert dwellers. The Bedouin are an semi-nomadic group, 
descended from nomads who have historically inhabited the deserts."

— Merriam-webster


Ash'ir's character is based around these nomads, constantly travelling across the sand plains with basic supplies much more valuable than in civilization.

The two unlisted family names included in the clan are open slots for anyone to put themselves in, send me a message and we'll sort it out.

If you find any mistakes in lore in this profile, please inform me and I'll get it changed. Thanks ahead.


Appearance

Ash'ir stands a little taller than most of his kin that walk the grassy plains of Gridania's wealthy forests. His pigment regularly warrants confusion about his heritage, most often mistaken for a Seeker until his fangs or irises are spotted. Taking the latter into detail, a scar runs swept through his right eye-socket — this having impaired his vision the damage blinded his eye. A second scar is found at his opposite cheek, yet stretched diagronal and smaller than the previously mentioned. Many of these trivial scars are found throughout his toned canvas though.

Wherever Ash'ir goes, his gait is held with a dexterous grace; his chin never leaving its confident height that he keeps it raised in. His shoulders are equally as rocked back, furtherlu construing the self-assurance that oozes from his disposition. When pulling every fiber of muscle in his body, the potential hidden in his limbs chisel up into capable bulks, suggesting evidence to his history in hunting and other hardships. When relaxed, line upon line of muscle still contribute to a quasi-intimidating appearance, though not discouraging approach as much as when hardened. When challenged conversationally, he is usually seen with a smug fucking look that makes you want to punch it.


Starting from the top, his hair appears washed at all times but unkempt all the same, a hand frequently swooping through it to reset it to its casually intended style. The strands of hair are thick and expansive in nature, providing the sinister cat with a big bush sprouted from the top of his head. Ash'ir carries various beads and necklaces serving as trophies while his left arm has native warpaint akin to his cheeks; both of these refreshed before combat by himself or a female of his ternion as it is believed to enhance his performance; adding to this is his art in alchemy, brewing improvised incenses to boost his combat capabilities.

Clan and Ternions

Clan Name: The Condorbane Clan

Known Families: Sylla, Hyun, Kuro, two more unlisted families

Original Location: Twelveswood // Current: Spread around Twelveswood & large cities


Clan Traditions

Ternions: Since the very crossing of the frozen oceans, the Condorbane clan has stayed true to its dispersive behaviour. Members of this clan are divided in packs of three to promote the spreading of the clan; each consisting of atleast one female and one male. The third is usually a secondary mating partner to ensure growth in the clan or an additional feeder. They're not particularly lead by one of the three members, though the matriarchical females do tend to take decisions more often than the men — for example, a ternion identifies itself by an adjective thought up and decided by the females of the group. The adjective is subject to change when a member has fallen and a new female takes its place. Although this option is not always chosen, it is a form of paying respects to the new "matriarch" of the triad. The members of the ternion tend to stick together in a general area, some having taken to fishing and poaching in Twelveswood whereas others have travelled to cities in pursue of survival by thievery or profession. Few notable ternions have turned to aid the Elezen in quenching the Ixali threat.

Tribal Paints: Face markings and paint are given at the birthing of a new ternion. The females of the group have responsibility over the application and styling of it, many resembling rehearsed ancient patterns embedded deep into the clan's history. Once a new female joins a ternion, it is tradition that she cleanses the other members' markings and reapplies her own, serving as a signature to enforce her presence in the ternary group.

Maturing: Should a Condorbane female yield offspring, she is to nurture it until its sixteenth age, which is when they mature. The males of the ternion are tasked with feeding the children of its ternion until the cub matures and experiences the Union of the Ternions (see below). It is then placed in a new ternion and caretaking is then relied on the members of the ternion themselves. Often do Condorbane members not get to see their original parents inbetween unions.

Naming conventions: When a new ternion is formed (note: at age 16, not when a new female enters an existing one), the males of that trio have the option to further his mother's name as his surname while keeping the suffix of the original mother. His first name is then replaced by (either) of the females in the ternion. This latter tradition happens rarely and is mostly used to mend a difficult relation or to create a stronger bond between the members of the ternion.

Ceremonies

Union of the Ternions: A three-monthly seasonal ceremony that celebrates the fertility and success of the clan. It is this ceremony where all seperate ternions and their individual birthparents come together for a grand feast hosted by the more famed Condorbane ternions. This ceremony is also the event where newborn that have aged to 16 are effectively merged into new ternions, birthing new groups which members are usually influenced by the females' choosing. Should there be a rivalry over a particular male, both females are to mate with the designated male and, when offspring is had, these three form a new ternion together with their children. Until this happens, the male is considered groupless and must survive on his own while the females stay with their parents. Usually, men going down this path end up stronger and more independent than others, they turn out to be better leaders and caretakers as is required when needing to feed two cubs at once. The clan generally only allows mating between different ternions and other members of the clan — while not punished, this tradition is ruled to be held in high regard. Those who breed outside of the clan are looked down upon.

Affiliations

The Condorbane Clan: The clan he was born into, it's one of the older existing Keeper clans.

The Shifting Ternion: This ternion prides itself on its cunning ability in swindling and trickery. They are smart individuals and particularily well-trained. The males are often bruisers and have a tanned skin gained from their usual habitat when not in cities to deploy their shady craft: Thanalan's Sagolii Desert. The persistent exposure of the sun has pigmented veterans of this ternion to a dark-brown complexion. Mostly driven by survival, members of this ternion hold no grudge against the Seekers that they often run into when traversing the warm sands. Instead, some have taken to distributing water to parched adventurers in the desert in trade for unusually high monetary values, extortion at its finest. Ash'ir falls under this group.
