General Information

A mercenary stationed in Ul'dah with a group of others like himself. (More to come later...)


A tall hyur mercenary in his early fourties with a strong physique characteristic to his origin, he carries himself with confident strides perhaps unexpected for a refugee. He's at a peak physical condition, without appearing overly bulky and has naturally blonde hair and narrow steel-grey eyes that in combination with old scars make him appear fierce to some. Some additional scarring can be seen around his neck in the form of burn scars that have clearly received some heavy surgery to allow movement of his head and shoulders in present day, even if the injury isn't fresh anymore. He likes to portray a neat appearance and avoids looking disheveled in public, trimming his short beard and grooming himself regularly.

RP Hooks

  • Spontaneous meeting at Bull's Rest Inn

    Cyrus can often be found in the Bull's Rest Inn during the mornings or evenings, enjoying a drink or a meal before heading out or going to bed. (( A fully furnished inn in the Goblet player housing. ))

  • Mercenary work

    Cyrus occasionally takes mercenary work, responding to advertisements for work found in Ul'dah region.

  • Illegal Weapons Trade

    Cyrus may be inclined to engage in business dealing illegal weapons, specifically firearms and explosives. This wouldn't be public knowledge and will have to be agreed upon OOCly.

Acceptable RP Unacceptable RP
  • Realistic and lore-friendly
  • Mature RP
  • Most things are acceptable, if they make sense.
  • Explicit torture RP
  • Overpowered niche concepts such as Ascians, voidsent, multiple rare soulstones nonsense and other powergaming.
  • Metagaming me in any way. If in doubt, whisper/DM and ask!

Player Info

I can be contacted on discord naelis#8148 or in-game on either Cyrus Drusus or my main Xihsa'li Tayuun. Cyrus is an alt, but I tend to RP him and my main Xihsa'li with around 50/50 split of my RP time. Feel free to whisper me in game or otherwise to arrange RP! :)

My Policies

  • Lore-Friendly

    I strive for, and expect from others, an adherence or at least respect of established lore.

  • Common Sense

    Where one has no knowledge of a particular subject matter or is lacking confidence, common sense steps in to help figure it all out. When in doubt, use common sense! Please avoid willful metagaming, powergaming and forcing consequences on others.

  • Communication

    When in any way uncomfortable with anything going on, uncertain of what is appropriate, or wanting to arrange potential RP, communication is key. I'm more than happy answering or helping with any lore questions, practical matters relating to RP as well as arranging RP on a case by case basis. While the previous two policies may seem judgmental to you, it's with communication we can all make sure we have fun and untangle any potential knots that come up in RP.
