General Information
Chagatai suits well to his name, devoid of much in the way of pigment save about some of his scales and one-or-two hidden patches of skin. He is built for strength, the useful sort. He is very obviously a labourer.
Pale Grey White White skin, white-and-black scales.. Mesomorphic Bass-Baritone
Relaxed Left Left brow, knuckles, shoulderblades and back-scales Small inked lotus on left wrist Ascetic, Simple
Hair & Eyes
Shorn, parted on one side, clean. He keeps his hair shorter than the average Au Ra, lacking adornments or coverings. Right eye is faintly drooping, steely grey in colour with a bright, luminescently white limbal ring. Left eye is missing, the lid and flesh around it covered in small, translucent scales growing over the scar tissue.
Physique & Markings
Obvious laborer, lean and broad-shouldered with a somewhat uniform waist contrary to his somatype. Some evidence may be seen of a more violent prior vocation in his arms, hands, legs, and feet where the roughness of skin or cracked scales are obvious. The inked lotus on the underside of his left wrist is simple, facing his palm. Many of the scales on his back feature nicks, or scarring, and several more are starkly white. His palms, fingers, and the soles of his feet are well-calloused.
Hygiene & Attire
Typically decently clean. May occasionally smell of timber, oils, and animal fats.
Psychological Profile
Chagatai's default intense expression and quiet nature belie a depth and complexity in his being. Though most will see a looming bouncer, a simple carpenter, or a stern and loving father, those who tempt him out of his quiet know better. He is no simpleton but a clever, capable man with a tongue that weaves words both wicked and warm. Any one person may have a distinctly different impression of him, and at times the opinions vary so wildly it brings to wonder if two have met the same man. The reality is he's not oft to talk about himself, choosing to focus on the present and his surroundings rather than showing any signs of introspection.
With minor rises into tenor uncommon, the bass-baritone of Chagatai's voice is best describe as sonorous, or perhaps modulated, if you prefer. It is rare to be above an unobtrusive volume, but he naturally projects, leading to a strict control over just how loud he is. He rumbles, he grumbles, he murmurs and muses, but does not growl nor shout.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
"The river flows onward, swim against it or with it, but do not let it carry you." "The word 'weed' has place only in gardens and fields." "All stones beaten by the tide will shape beneath the strikes, in time." "Bow for no one, be cowed by nothing." "If it lives yet, it is worth some measure of respect. For it has fought to get this far." "To decide where your loyalties lie is freedom."

Non-Combat Abilities
Swimming: An affinity for water has left Chagatai with a strong capability of movement both in fresh and saltwater locations. Even with his build he has little to fear in being dropped unceremoniously into rough surf. Time with the Ejinn fostered a trained lung capacity and complete lack of fear of being submerged. In short, Chagatai is as much at home in the water as he is on land.
Carving: Though he hardly speaks of it, Chagatai has an eye for creating works both functional and not out of wood. Marquetry, relief-carving, and root-carving are his favored practices. Rarely does he carry his own works with him, however. In structures, he often uses relief-carving or marquetry to make his 'signature' as it were, a lotus in the beak of a slender bird.
Hand-Language: It should be noted that this refers not only to the Moks' form of communication, but also that which may be used by the deaf and/or mute.
Remedies: Not-quite alchemy, Chagatai nevertheless knows a few treatments for specific ailments he's witnessed in himself, his tribe, and his daughter, over the years.
Combat Abilities
Bucking Earth More of a spell centered on his fist, but a favorite one nevertheless in which gravity is warped and the spell transferred into the earth to make it shudder and buck, to throw opponents off their feet.
Shrug-it-Off: Built for punishment, he doesn't go down easily and often seems entirely unaware of his own wounds. His tenacity to outlast opponents can be both a boon and serious hindrance.
OOC Note
I prefer to talk it out either during or prior to a fight scene. I am open, fair, and want to give people their time to shine while not compromising the integrity of anyone's character in strength or weakness.

"Stories carried softly on the wind. Stories written into the night sky. Stories wrought into the stone and soil. So many, which do you wish to know?"
Disclaimer: History should typically be an Icly-discovered set of details, but for sake of argument I'll say this: Chagatai is not especially forthcoming about his history. In addition, I am more-than-open about forging potential synchronizations in backstories if you talk it out with me.
Sixth Astral Era
((Under Construction))

Seventh Umbral Era
A single Xaela wandering on his own inspires little in the way of trust, less when his skin is pallid and scales piebald. Chagatai is not one to speak of his wanderings at length, but the few known details are perhaps in the old, kiseru he keeps on his person, the myriad of scars across flesh and scale alike, and his current tribal name. And of course, who could forget, he has a daughter.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
Thanalan and the Ul'dahn fighting pits served as the first place where Chagatai earned his coin upon arriving in Eorzea. However,

the arrangement proved unfavorable for both he and his daughter. Fearing his daughter would be taken into slavery when he wasn't there to protect her, and feeling the ache of his wounds exacerbated by the grueling combat of the arena, they fled the city and Thanalan altogether. Rumors of Gridania and its carpentry guild gave them direction, however briefly.

Nowadays they reside in La Noscea, with Chagatai as the acting bouncer for the Siren's Call, headed by a former pit fighter whom the Au Ra respects

Relationship Status Legend

Narangawa, Adopted Daughter. () - Beloved Ray of Sunshine
Character's Thoughts: "I did not expect to ever sire a child. I never expected to be a father. However, when Maral brought her to me, still but hours old I- ah, hm. What do I say- save that she means more to me than this world, or the next. She is a spark of hope in motion. "
T'odaluk Tia, Employer. () - An Ode to Luck
Character's Thoughts: "I know him from elsewhere, but we'd never spoken before I came under his employ. Just as well, there is some wariness in me, seeing what he is, so removed from what he was. He has bled for what he has, I am sure of that."

NPC Rumors

Some of these rumors are untrue, speculation, or are greatly exaggerated.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard. Use these freely!
"That one? It's the strangest thing- he looks to be a real practical sort, but everything he makes has an artistry to it. Something small, almost hidden or secret, in all his pieces." — Overheard in Gridania.
"See his scales? Now that just isn't right. I heard he's cursed. Followed around by a little girl just as marked as he. Who knows what he did to upset the gods, though." — Rumormonger.
◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!
"Just a bouncer? Feh, sure by the build. Big and ugly, but look at the way he moves. Untrained bruisers don't move like that." — Rumormonger.
"Sometimes he smells like pipeweed. Not the usual sort, neither. Something heavy, something strong." — Rumormonger.
◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely overheard. Please ask before using!
"I can hardly believe it, I thought he;d died in Doma when the fights broke out. One of the spook's own, still healthy and whole..." — Rumormonger.
"Men like him never stop fighting. Sometimes they go too far. Rest assured that white skin of his ought to be blood-red from his deeds." — Rumormonger.

IC Inventory
If you're sizing him up, or looking to pick-pocket, here's a good list of items that might be easier to spot on him.

Glio coinpurse.png

RP Limits
Generally speaking, I don't have too many limitations, but No's are typically a hard no.
I will play Sparring, mystery, adventure, humor, fluff. You know, the obvious things?
Ask about Violence, romance with substance or context, death, etc. I'm not opposed to these themes, but they need to be discussed before any RP can take place.
I won't play Rape, ERP for the sake of ERP, etc.
RP Hooks
I greatly enjoy establishing pre-existing acquaintances and relationships in RP, but if that isn't your thing, here are some hooks. I'm typically up for RP regardless of where I am. Just send me a /tell.
■ Chagatai is a bit odd-looking. This may get some interesting reactions out of individuals, particularly from Xaela and Raen.
■ He also unintentionally made a name for himself in the Coliseum as a hand-to-hand expert with great pain tolerance.
■ If you enjoy casual Bar RP, the Siren's Call in the Mists holds RP nights every so often, and Chagatai is their acting bouncer.

OOC Notes
Player Information
Player Note
I'm pretty big on OOC and IC being kept separate. My character's actions do not represent me in any manner. In addition, communication is important and if the RP isn't casual, or even if it is and you're looking for clarification, don't be afraid to talk to me. Though I may play a grumpy-looking old man, I myself am anything but. Lastly, I don't do well with lots of scroll, so you probably won't see me in super-populated locations.

■ No changes.
Character Concept
Chagatai was made with the knowlege of FFXIV's expansive history of conflict in mind, he is a survivor of conflict, and an old fighter who can never quite unclench his fists.
