The Ishgardian boasts variety of weaponskills, including the bow, sword, and lance. She has seen the conclusion of the Dragonsong War, and now devotes her time to either assist the Beast Tribes in Dravanian territory or the Sea of Clouds, or works as a mercenary in greater Eorzea.

Appearance & Personality



Given name: Benathie Angelica Nighte

Used name: Benathi Nightsong

Actual History: Soon™


Mount: Benathi owns a personal Chocobo that possesses violet feathers. Her name is Courrier, and she is a racing Chocobo that was abandoned, assumedly intentionally injured, in Western Coerthas two years ago. Bena found her and nurtured her back to health. Her care for Courrier seemed to impress the Temple Knights, who permitted the Midlander to officially declare ownership of the Chocobo.
Favorite Weapon: Benathi tends to carry two weapons with her when she's doing work: a longbow, and a longsword. The longsword has an aged, cared for look to it. A small emblem of house Haillenarte hangs on a thin chain from the crossguard. The longbow is made of sturdy wood, and reinforced with a light, pliable metal. On the grip of the bow, there are a number of runes. These runes seem to be of different words and colors. Bena can press her finger on a rune to "aspect" her shot. For example, she can press on the Wind rune to increase the velocity of her arrow, and make use of the same Wind to force the wound the arrow creates to open farther. There are currently three runes on the bow: Wind, Fire, and Ice.
