Eaubront Shopont is an especially tall elezen man with a wide chest and shoulders, compared to his relatively narrower hips. With his toned musculature, he looks hulky for an elezen, which would look rather awkward if not for the charismatic way in which he carries himself. No one can tell you what his clan of origin is, although other Elezen are most likely to see him for what he really is; at first blush he appears to be a Wildwood, but his deceptively cool complexion and the shape of his eyes betray possible Duskwight heritage. It is difficult to pin down which he might actually be. He is quick to tell anyone that he is neither; he simply is himself. That's good enough for him and he thinks it should be good enough for anyone else.
Scars & Markings: He has a long scar along his left cheek, as well as several slash-like scars on his left hip. He also sports an angry-looking scar from a bullet wound near the center of his chest. His nose is crooked from having been broken, the bridge of his nose skewed to the left.
Clothing: Most of his outfits show off his broad chest and complement his wide shoulders, drawing attention to his odd proportions. His favorite coat is long, dark green and black, with gold-colored trim, which he wears with a red sash tied around his waist underneath. He can often be seen in a pair of green earrings, and on his right hand he wears a macrame bracelet with exactly seven beads, which are green with decorative swirls of gold.
Eaubront has a playful nature; he's friendly and conversational, and while he can be argumentative and sarcastic as well, he is rarely unkind. He's also a shameless flirt towards women. It's all in good fun, for him, even the arguments. Because he finds joy in debate and bantering, he sometimes goes overboard and can come off as overly argumentative or insensitive. (Which, honestly, is probably pretty standard for an Elezen.) He is also very self-indulgent, going straight for whatever it is that he wants at the moment; food, gambling, alcohol-- lots of alcohol-- he's always looking for a good time.
Belied by his sometimes impulsive behavior, Eaubront is a clever man, although he has perhaps not yet found the best applications for his wit. He can quickly size up a situation and make a decent judgement of someone's character. He has used this to find reputable work, survive said work, and garner a relatively positive reputation for himself. He can also find creative solutions to unusual problems. However, he is more interested in having and sharing ideas than he is in the upkeep and maintenance of those ideas.
He's a pleasure seeker who values freedom, but also values the happiness and well-being of others. Others should be allowed to pursue freedom and their own happiness, as long as it is not at the expense of others' freedom and happiness, and those who would act to inhibit the freedom of others (people who own or sell slaves, for instance) lose this right. These values sit at the core of his moral and political beliefs.
Finally, he has a particular fondness for gambling and games of chance, often offering wagers to people in the form of a simple coin toss. Coin-tossing is his favorite way to make decisions. He proclaims that he has naturally good luck and places a lot of stock in it, often attributing his successes and failings to luck instead of skill. Whether he truly believes this, or is trying to disarm people by convincing them that he believes it, is hard to say.
A presumably rich, Ishgardian professor that Eaubront is not very fond of. They suffer eachother's company and constantly shoot snipes at eachother when they're in a room together. Many people assume they're interested in eachother, but Eaubront insists that is not the case.
A quiet and demure healer, Ehfi captured Eaubront's attention from their first meeting and never let go. After dancing around his feelings for her for quite some time, the two became an item after a near-death experience on his part. To him, she's the entire package: beautiful, altruistic, thoughtful, and more forgiving than he deserves of his fuck-ups.
A gladiator of Ul'dah who goes by the moniker "The Asp of Gelmorra". He is apparently an old friend of Eaubront's, from their childhood in Ul'dah's streets. The resemblance between the two is uncanny, aside from Illeaux's dark skin. Something in the past has put a wedge between them, and the both of them seem reluctant to speak of it.
A fellow mercenary that Eaubront finds himself drawn to. They both enjoy the drink and make their living in much the same way, but it's their differences that intrigue him more. Like Ehfi, Josiah is somewhat quieter and his compassion knows no bounds. This scarred-up brick wall of a man has an undeniable softness that is paradoxical, complex, interesting.
Quirky go-to expert on all things old and weird. A loyal and valuable ally, Shou never fails to surprise Eaubront with some newly found interest or behavior of hers. She keeps him on his toes, and he finds a kindred spirit in her unconventional character.
An intelligent Lalafell with respectably deeply-held convictions, though he can be volatile at times, which does frustrate Eaubront a bit. While Eaubront can make a logical argument, he will always defer to Zigovali's superior grasp of emotional manipulation when it comes to matters of diplomacy.

■ "He says he's from around here, but I'm not so sure. Aren't most folks like him from Gridania? Or Ishgard? I know he ain't no Ishgardian though."
■ "Aye, I often see him poring over guildleves. I think he admires the pretty glass more than anything, but he always returns to the guild looking so pleased with himself."
■ "Oh, honey, he says that about all the girls. But don't make that face. He does mean it."
◢ Uncommon Rumors -A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!
■ "Does he not have any family? He never talks about them, or where he comes from..."
■ "He must spend all of his gil on clothes or something. That's a nice-arse coat for him to be a drifter."
◢ Rare Rumors -Very rarely overheard.
■ "He's a sight, inn't he? I think he must be part Duskwight and part Wildwood. 'S why he's so good with the sword. He's got the Duskies' hearin' and the Wildwoods' eyesight."
◢ Player Character Rumors -Feel free to add rumors of your own!
■ "Who, Carrion? I guess that's enough said about him, if he pushes his luck too far." Averill Rooks
■ "Bottle Man is clumsy in body and mind. But occasionally, he makes sense. Often, he smells like Master, a bit ... He'll do well to keep himself alive... Rinse Lady would be troubled." Virara Wakuwa
■ "I'm happy to spend more time with him, whenever it is possible. I just have a slight concern about the drinking...and worry about the possible stress if a repeat of no alcohol after losing so much blood happens again." Ehfi Rhinsu
■ "Interestin' man, ain't he? Damn near any time, he's just laughs 'n' drinkin' 'til y'can't see straight. But when lives are in danger, 'specially those close to him, he'll do whatever it takes to keep everyone safe. I respect him, 'n' can only hope he'll continue to grow." Josiah Covey
■ "I'd like to believe Eaubront iz the sort of man I would be, were I greater in moral fiber and strength of arm, and lesser in cunning and pragmatizm. An honest man, but besides that, a good man. Were it not for his bleeding heart and righteous soul, he would make a fine grifter. Ah, the pity of wasted potential, yes?" Zigovali Rigovali
■ I will play mature content and themes (violence, sexuality, drug/alcohol use) as long as they make sense for the characters. Down for combat, temporary injury and incapacitation.
■ Ask about long-term and/or permanent injury, disfigurement/mutilation, stuff like that. I really prefer to discuss long-term things in advance.
■ I won't play permanent character death or rapey stuff. Consent is too important to Eaubront. He don't do that.
■ OOC communication is important to me! Don't be afraid to share your thoughts with me and I'll try to not be afraid to share mine with you! I'm not a very sensitive or easily offended individual myself, so please feel free to let me know in advance if you have any themes you're uncomfortable with or potential triggers we should avoid if you think it's something that might come up. It's just something I try to be conscious about.
