U'Ashelia "Ashley" Kirie
Mother of 8 children, warrior, huntress and rogue, as well as an former courtesan. Ashley has been a wide range of professions throughout her life, and it's shaped her to the very core. Tall, graceful in combat, crass and blunt in conversation, the half breed has made quite a name for herself. From being a Sex slave of a wealthy Ul'dahn merchant to being a street rat, and now a well known Rogue and mother of 8, she aims to protect her friends and family and continue to explore the world while making sure her daughters are all ready for the harsh reality of it.
Ashley, being a woman of battle, and the thrill of the hunt, has spent most of her life, outside being a servant hunting and fighting for sport and gil alike, as it's become a part of her natural instincts to fight, and always lust for a brutal battle. In her early years of being a street runaway on Ul'dah, she'd often get into fights with many refugee's and poverty stricken folk over food or stolen goods and exchanges, sometimes coming out on top, other times losing. Though she looks back on this time in her life with shame, she always owns up to what she did, and the fights she'd been involved in. After her time, serving as a servant for the "Merchant Queen of the Sands", Ashley had her first child: V'lerie Behr. Throughout her time experiencing motherhood, Ashley began to slowly mature and began to understand the severity of her actions, and sought to change herself, for better protecting her family.
During her time of Raising V'lerie, many things had transpired:
Ashley was found by a former 'client' of her previous employer, and was forced into doing many, horrible tasks at the risk of her daughter and lover being assassinated. For 2 Summers, Ashley followed the 'client's' orders. This lead to her being used as an assassin to kill off various members of the underworld society, and to steal from many other wealthy members of Ul'dahn society. Just when the Syndicate and another underworld organization were becoming involved, things under the mysterious 'client' fell out. Her ties were severed, and the 'client' was later reported to her to be on the run. Angry, and hungry for vengeance, Ashley set off to investigate the 'client's' whereabouts and identity, shortly after leaving her lover, and V'lerie in the care of her must trustworthy friend: a member of the Vulture tribe. Several weeks passed, and after much interrogation, and traveling, she'd finally found out who the 'client's' identity was: A wealthy underworld criminal leader, known as Victoria. With the help of her friends, she wound personally confront Victoria, and after a grueling fight through her hired hands, dealt a swift beheading strike to the mastermind, ending her tyranny once and for all, crumbling her operations and setting those under her debt free from her control.
Ashley is a taller than average miqo'te, sharing some Keeper features as well as Seeker features. Her tail is long, and fluffier than a standard Seeker's but she has Seeker eyes. Her skin is a pale dark, similar to Keepers, and has fluffier, large ears than most miqo'te. Ashley touts impressively large measurements, that at times, lead to some complaining from her, but she ever remains proud of them. All around, the curvacious woman is Lithe, with some traces of her massive strength in her slight athletic build in her arms and lower legs.Her appearance betrays her age, for she doesn't look too much older than V'lerie, despite being in her mid 30's.
Aspects That Stand Out:
Ashley is a very confident, outgoing woman now, compared to the shy, and easily discouraged woman she was when she was younger. Se can always been seen either smiling, or smirking with a tinge of desire in her eyes, for what, or who is never known until she acts on it. To stranger and friends alike, she'll be bubbly and giggly, making jokes if she isn't laughing at them. It's rare to see her actually upset, or even scowling. Despite this. she does retain a small temper, often will hold grudges with those who do upset her. She's not as forgiving as her daughters and holds a pretty jaded overall view of the world, thanks to the many experiences she's gone through. Ashley is also a Trickster, who loves to cause mischeif, even at her own expense sometimes.
