(Currently a WIP, typos and other of the like) Ayultai Tsakhilgaan leads a renegade's life under the shadow of Ishgard and amidst the rocky moutains of Dravania. Raised by Ishgardians, he turned back on them when he found out they had been the undoing of his family. Yet, so far he hasn't found home within his blood relatives either. He has no problems getting his hands dirty and has his own code of honour. Ayultai and his Griffins companions make a living by dealing in black market goods, information brokering and any other under-the-table activities worth the profit. He has a fascination for long lost, rare or legendary artifacts, and treasure hunting holds special interest for him. From all the treasuress he's out on the hunt for, one holds special relevance and meaning, a coffer containing the belongings of his late father locked away somewhere under the snows of Coerthas. He has vowed to retrieve them and cut down any who stands between him and these family heirlooms.

Some of Ayultai's closest relatives met their demise at the hands of the Corbeau family, when mistaken for heretics with draconian features. His heavily injured mother managed to escape with his older sister but by misfortune a weeks old Ayultai was dropped on the snow during the chase and retrieved by Raphelaux Corbeau. Though the Xaela child was also possesed of seemingly draconian characteristics, the elezen decided he wouldn't taint his blade with an innocent babe's blood. So Ayultai was taken, raised hidden and in utmost secrecy by Lord Corbeau, who in time grew somewhat attached to this very sharp and intelligent boy. Ayultai was trained within the Unseen, the group of mercenaries sworn to the Corbeau. Raphelaux always gave him special treatment, but his childhood was still one marked with hardship and confinement. When later he found out about his origin's, he felt betrayed by the man he had considered almost a father. Blinded by pride and grief he ran away only to come back a couple of years later to foment and lead a mutinous uprising within the ranks of the Unseen. With this, the mercenary group divided in two opposing factions that destroyed each other, and Ayultai ended up killing Corbeau himself when the later refused to return to him the belongings that had been prised from Ayultai's biological father. There were very few survivors from either side of this conflict. He went back to Othard where he met his older sister Eji and the remaining Tsakhilgaans. Though he was the son of the previous Khan, because he had been thought dead and raised by Ishgardians, his foreigner ways were frowned upon and though the family celebrated his return, in time he didn't feel welcome. So he spent some years in Doma instead, with the Kurogane clan. When the Garleans began their earnest invasion of the continent, he went back to Eorzea, building upon what had been left behind by the Unseen, but no longer hiding behind the false pretense of righteousnes, he founded the Griffins with the few allies that had accompanied him, most notably Eji Tsakhilgaan and Ensetsu Kurogane, older sister and friend. Going through some records he found out his biological father's heirlooms remained within a sealed vault somewhere in Coerthas and he has ever since been looking for the supposed last Unseen survivor who's keeping the key from him.
Snow white skin, yellow eyes with a golden limbal ring, dark purple scales and long jet black hair. Educated by an Ishgardian lord, Ayu has some care and refinement with way he presents himself when it comes to clothes and appearance, but it's just a force of habit and acquired taste rather than pure vanity. Always in dark clothes to better blend with the dark of the night #theedgeiscallingtonight.
