History/Timeline (Spoilers!!)

Childhood

Eiai Airi was born to two Sharlayan scholars; a Xaelan man who originally belonged to the Oronir tribe and a Raen woman who came from a small village in Yanxia. The scholars came to share an unnatural obsession with dragonkind- their long lives and destructive power alike. Seeking to replicate this power and longevity for themselves, the husband and wife would set out to conduct inhumane experiments on victims they had captured in secret, attempting to find a way to transform their bodies and minds into that of real dragons. They were eventually caught and imprisoned for a time, then exiled from the Old World. This did not stop them - they would go so far as to experiment on themselves.
After becoming pregnant with Eiai, the Raen was fed nothing but the raw flesh of young dragons and heretical elezen they had hunted, thinking that would transform their unborn child into a dragon. Inside of a small hidden hut on the outskirts of the Dravanian Forelands, they were sorely disappointed to find that their child would not be the dragon they had planned for... But a normal halfling girl. Distraught and angry, they tried to dump the newborn into a nearby river, but something changed their minds. They decided they could use her. Raising her in that hut, they fed her knowledge and weaved stories about the dragons and a past she never had, how she was one of them and that her real mother was a dragon. It was all to fool both her and themselves. Treating her with a cold distance, they made sure she knew that they were not her family, never letting her leave the hut or see her own reflection in the waters. When she questioned the fact that she didn't have wings like dragons do, her parents lashed out and surgically implanted a pair of wings they had sliced from a captured dragonet onto her back. She was left badly infected and terribly ill for many suns until they finally removed the rotting wings, but the child was effectively silenced. She endured other small experiments on her body from then on, all ending in failure.
Desperate to make some kind of progress, the husband and wife dragged Eiai out when she was no more than six summers old, intent on sacrificing her to an elder dragon to gain the curse of the dragons that once transformed Ishgardians. Their attempt ended in them being slaughtered and eaten alive in front of Eiai. While the dragon was busy with the bodies of her parents, she escaped and ran for her life. For a few moons, Eiai lived in the wilds on her own, hunting whatever her small body could handle and stealing food from the Tailfeather settlement. She was soon discovered by a teenage Miqo'te hunter of Tailfeather who was alarmed by her unfamiliar appearance, thinking she oddly resembled a dragon, but... He knew she was a child and did not want to leave whatever she was alone in the wilderness. The Miqo'te, who's name was Yin'ir Miura, took in the little 'dragon', humoring whatever the odd child had to say... Even the idea that she was indeed a dragon, like she was raised to believe.

Teenage

Her memories of her childhood are fragmented and blurry, but she remembers very clearly the stories she was told of her and the dragons, as if that is her true past. Burying the trauma and pain her real parents caused her somewhere within herself, she can't seem to recall their faces... Their names... The experiments they conducted on her... Or even how they died. Eiai lived in peaceful ignorance of what happened to her, being cared for by the teenaged hunter in a small camp near Tailfeather until she reached the age of eighteen. It was then that she begged Yin'ir to let her go to Gridania where she could learn more to improve her natural talent of conjury, making her way as a healer for hire until she met a Miqo'te raised by Qestir in the Steppes. He came back to Eorzea with her and got a big house, where he and Eiai lived together until she joined the Collective.

Present

After becoming involved with the Collective due to her childishly nosy nature, Eiai assisted in their endeavors to end the threat of the entity called Mogg. She at first remained just an outsider to them, Hizu's mate, and an odd friend that seemed to bring a sort of enthusiasm and optimism to their halls. But after a time, she seemed to slowly become considered part of the family... She had been undergoing ninjutsu training from Kibaa, and Kataani eventually presented her with a decision- resulting in Eiai joining the Collective officially. To her, the Collective was a means for her to gain the strength in a body she still couldn't quite accept, doing what she could to move forward in life and gain the ability to protect those she cared for.
A cycle passed, and it became obvious that the Collective wasn't what Eiai imagined it to be. While it was true that she was able to become much stronger, it was at the great cost of her emotional and mental health. She suffered both emotionally and physically, at the hands of the people who claimed to care for her. Knowing that she was on a downward spiral, she attempted to leave several times, but felt chained there for many reasons. She endured for her husband at the time, but in the end, even he couldn't keep her caged there. Eiai came to remember the past and the true version of herself she had kept buried and finally snapped, leaving the Collective behind as a bitter memory.
Eiai now works for the Union and the Court, on a more destructive path brought on by the combination of the past and present. She has little regard for living under the law and wishes to break free of all cages that life would try to keep her contained in. Like a dragon who lives wild and unchained, she seeks her own version of eternity.

The Creators

Enx Oronir (NPC) "Your voice... Was always so empty. So cold. I'm glad I'll never hear it again."

A Sharlayan scholar born of the Steppes. Eiai's birth father. He was a runt born with a disease that effected his growth, remaining frail and never growing much larger than a female Au Ra. Constantly belittled for his small stature and fragile constitution, he made up for his lack of talent as a warrior by providing the tribe with various creative stratagems that led the Oronir to victory in their many territorial battles. With his tribe's blessings, Enx departed to sharpen his mind in Sharlayan. Through his research there, he came to grow an unhealthy obsession with the strength of dragons. It led him down a path where he toyed with others lives... Including his own daughters. Ironically, it was a dragon that ended his life. Eiai doesn't remember the man, but in her memories she saw his black horns and heard his deep, scary voice.

Akemi Airi (NPC) "You looked at me like I was nothing more than a bug. Maybe I was to you, but..."

Enx Oronir's wife and Eiai's mother, also a Sharlayan scholar who hailed from a village in Yanxia. She was a vain young woman who was quite popular in her small village, but could not be won by any man. Bearing a strong personality and quick wits, she grew bored of her life there and sought out something more. She left Doma before it was captured by The Empire, employed in Sharlayan and partnered with Enx Oronir. She fell for him and promised her life to him, adopting his obsession with dragonkind and following him into insanity and even death. Eiai doesn't currently remember much about her either, but remembers her surname that her father referred to her as.

True Family

Yin'ir Miura (NPC) "You are the realm's weirdest dad, but still... You're my dad anyways!"

Yin'ir was just seventeen summers old when he found Eiai at the age of six in the Foreland wilds. He had never seen an Auri child before, so he thought her to be some kind of strange dragon-like creature, but he was still too kind-hearted to leave a child to fend for herself in such dangerous territory. Hiding her from the rest of the Tailfeather settlement, Yin'ir set up his own camp nearby to keep her away from the others. Being a teenager without experience caring for a small child, Yin'ir was at a bit of a loss, but he did what he could to take care of her. He eventually decided to name her Eiai, and as some of her memories started to piece together, she took the surname of Airi, which she assumed belonged to the woman who was her mother. As Yin'ir raised her, he didn't have much disciplinary technique, but fortunately for him, she was a very withdrawn and well-behaved child. Eiai proved to be a very useful hunting partner as she grew up with him, and they slowly grew to be each other's best friends and family. Even so, Eiai never though of him as her father, but more like an odd brother, since Yin'ir never really punished her and let her do as she wished. Yin'ir is very protective of her and didn't want her to leave for Gridania, but he knew that she needed to create her own life path... So he did his best to keep his distance and simply checks in on her when he can. Now age thirty four, Yin'ir lives by himself in a small hut out in the Shroud, working as a trader/merchant between the Shroud and the Tailfeather settlement.

Reid Sunstride "Do you remember me, wherever you go?"

Eiai and Reid were classmates who were just starting out in the conjurer's guild, though Eiai was already a decent disciple that would try helping other students who seemed to struggle with conjury. Reid, a total newbie at conjury, didn't have a knack for the healing arts at all. No matter what angle she tried to approach it, Eiai wasn't able to inspire any improvement in the older Miqo'te man. In the end, Reid eventually gave up that endeavor as he realized his talents lay in his job as a Bard rather than healing magicks. Eiai had no choice but to agree with that notion. Despite that, the two remained close ever since and think of each other as nothing less than siblings. Reid naturally tends to protect and look out for Eiai in any way he can, and Eiai... Well, she certainly fits the picture of an affectionate little sister towards Reid. Reid wanders a lot and Eiai never gets to see him, but she misses him sometimes.

Kibaa Iteya "My number one Snack-Pack provider!! And my mom! Yes, he's a guy. But still my mom."
NEWKIBBLESicon.png

Kibaa was actually the first person she encountered from the Eldritch Collective- being rudely questioned by him on why exactly she was even following them. She affectionately nicknamed him 'Eyebrows' due to his very thick eyebrows that she just... Could not seem to look away from. Eiai at first had a hard time dealing with Kibaa or understanding him, even when she started hanging around the Collective more and more, but she at least appreciated his blunt attitude.

Their relationship took a turning point when he finally opened up to her one day, which made Eiai in turn feel that she could open up to him as well. That was when she felt they had really become friends. After a little more time, Kibaa ended up agreeing to mentoring her in the art of the ninja, having Eiai complete a small trial to obtain a soulstone from him. The soulstone belonged to Kibaa's previous master, Shiden. Eiai was given a room in Kibaa's personal home with his wife for a time, where she basically became like their very odd son. Eiai considers Kibaa to be true family. She now works for him and his wife after leaving the Collective, protecting him as much as she can. She loves the guy a lot and strangely gets REALLY upset when he gets hurt.

Mazin Khin "You're like... Like the prince in the storybook! Someone I only ever dreamed about. I hope... We can stay together. Always."

The moment Eiai met this Elezen, she was struck by his very minty hair color and his eyes that matched. She continuously referred to him with minty nicknames until the nickname Thin Mint seemed to stick the most. She was drawn in by his humor that oddly matched hers really well, feeling like talking with him was incredibly easy and natural. She never gets bored of his magic tricks and appreciates that he's already willing to do what he can for her, even after only a short time of knowing each other. After receiving the nickname 'Starshine' from him and learning that he looks at her as a little sister, Eiai began to feel incredibly comfortable with him. Though, through some cruel twist of fate, she learned that their destinies were always intertwined in a tangled web. Haunted by Mazin's father and her own parents' protégé, the two of them have been chased by their pasts, but they continue to make it through together.

Min Oronir "You were just a doppelganger, a mirror who didn't have feelings of her own... But you had come such a long way! A gremlin who lived on bookcases and... I... I just want you to be like that again."

Min was thought to be some sort of clone, an enemy out to destroy Eiai's life, but it became apparent after Min came to both her and Mazin that the girl was seeking a life of her own. Feelings of her own. It turned out that she was indeed Eiai's twin sister that she never knew had even existed... Eiai was instantly protective of her and hoped to help build a relationship with Min from the ground up, despite the weird territory they started off on. Eiai didn't blame her and grew to enjoy her sister's company, her bluntness, her... Weird gremlin tendancies. But after finding out that she is now back in the clutches of the doctors... Eiai hopes to find a way to take her back again.

Mirai Airi "My little fuzzball!! You're gonna grow up to be SO FUCKING TALL! And live in a world without chains! Your mama promises you that!"

Mirai was born on the 11th Sun of the Third Astral Moon (5/11). He was born with a full head of fluffy hair and mostly cat-like features like his father, Hizu. He has black scales growing in to indicate that he is half Au Ra. Eiai and Hizu gave him a name meaning 'the future' because to them, he is the future they wanted together. Currently, Mirai just cries a lot and poops all the time and doesn't let his parents get any sleep, but Eiai is fine with that. She loves to pester the little guy and doesn't like leaving his side. Her favorite part about him is his fluffy ears and tiny nub tail.

Friends

The Lover

Kaz Ashura "You're my favorite storm, but... If you can't keep your promise and give me an eternity... It will be me who ends your life~ "
KAZICON.png

Eiai's first encounter with Kaz was a fight on a rooftop in Northern Thanalan, though strangely enough, the fight resulted in her finding a sort of kinship in the man despite him knocking her ass out with an odd power. His madness excited her in some weird way, but because she was made to protect someone of the Collective at the time, she wasn't given much of a chance to understand this. It wasn't until Kaz extended a secret invitation for them to meet at Haukke Manor that Eiai was able to see that the two of them shared something that not many in the world can share... Kaz was captured by the Collective and kept suppressed due to his insanity, but Eiai continued to try building a friendship with the man. He was there to support her when the two of them lost someone who was important to them, but they were once again torn apart by those who felt that Kaz would bring out the 'worst' in her. He was cast out from the Collective, and Eiai never saw or heard from him again for quite some time. Recently, Kaz managed to find Eiai again, and the strange pair were able to pick right back up from where they left off-- As great friends who understand each other better than most anyone. They have made a pact together and have vowed to stay together in their own way. Though Eiai hesitated due to her broken heart, she still couldn't ignore that Kaz had a place in her heart... A place she still can't understand well, or put into words. She has decided to put faith in Kaz's assertion that he will see eternity with her, and is giving him the chance to prove that.

Close Ones

Aoi Kurashiki "My troubled teenage son, who... Doesn't really like me, but oh well."
Aoiicon.png

A thief that her ex-husband picked up off the streets after a failed stealing attempt, Aoi joined up with the Collective after being convinced by Hizu-- The Nunh believing that the younger Seeker would soon die if he continued down his criminal path. Aoi remained stubbornly belligerent, only occasionally listening to Hizu (when he felt like it). After learning of his fear, Eiai wanted to establish a connection between her and loner Miqo'te to help him, despite his obvious distrust. She had him come meet her in La Noscea to talk and work through things slowly, but she unfortunately overstepped boundaries and hurt him. It seemed like every time something was building between the two, it would easily break. The two of them often butt heads and end up just kind of... Yelling at each other.

Still, Eiai is equally stubborn and wanted to continue trying. Oddly, she cares about the young man a little too much despite everything he's done to try and hurt her with words he knows will cut her deeply. She would argue that he reminds her of her ex-husband back when she first met him; A troublemaker with nobody on his side, hated by everyone. Because of that similarity, Eiai doesn't wish to see him without a future and genuinely wants him to feel happier someday, knowing he has been through hells by himself.

However, Aoi had proved to be consistently troublesome through his time with them, despite Eiai and Hizu's attempts to help him. Others in the Collective had no faith that he would prove himself worthy of a place among them, but Eiai was still more than willing to do what she could to keep him-- refusing to allow him to be alone in a cruel realm, even if she gets hurt in the process. In her heart, she feels a growing affection for the man, jokingly referring to him as her 'troubled teenage son' (despite being in his 20's), but maybe that isn't so far off from the truth... Eiai likes to annoy him and take care of him as much as she can, at least happy that he's branched out and found more like-minded individuals that can help him through the world.

Karna Malaguld "What a terrifyingly adorable Raen~ Do people like him really still exist?!"
Karnaicon.png

During a quiet evening in the Gold Court, Eiai encountered the young, strikingly pretty Raen man when he approached her. The two of them got to talking, and Eiai realized he was VERY fun to poke at and tease. She also realized he was pretty foreign and was happy to chum around and help make him feel less alone in a far away place. Though Karna unfortunately had to bear witness to many of her... Less than savory personal affairs coming to haunt her publically, she quickly came to understand that the Raen is exceedingly patient and endearing, making it easier for Eiai to open up to the man. She feels like he is someone she can rely on, and has tried her best to be honest about herself and her path. Though she can't tell him everything... She genuinely likes the man and hopes he will continue to be around her.

A'lek Lanza "My bird-faced bestie!"
Birdboicon.png

Eiai met A'lek in the Pearl Lane, drawn in by his... Weird bird mask. They became quick friends along with a small group where they collectively roasted the poor man and dragged him along into their antics. Eiai fell fast for A'lek, who was there for her and eased her through a lot of her darkness. Through his humor and incredibly understanding nature, he made her feel able to open herself up to who she really was... And so A'lek holds great importance in her heart. Despite that, she ended up choosing Hizu over him and, even though it hurt, they agreed to remain besties.

Raih'ir Karnha "I... Respect him. More than I've respected any kind of leader, I think! Someone who cherishes freedom as much as I do, and... And has the fluffiest wiggly ears..."

Raih'ir is someone Eiai had seen here and there, often witnessing him getting in trouble with the Ul'dahn hero, Nightingale. She ended up watching him get taken away to some sort of high security prison by the vigilante, and it piqued Eiai's curiosity. She was given permission to pester the troubled criminal, and the two of them met again sometime after. He reached out to her with an offer to join him in The Court of Thieves. Eiai was slightly hesitant at first, having just escaped the Collective, but the sunset-eyed man turned out to be incredibly convincing, and Eiai couldn't help but agree to join up. Her fondness for the Thavnairian has only grown exponentially as time has gone on, and he has proven himself to be a selfless leader who will put himself on the line for his people. Eiai is especially impressed by his actions thus far, not used to people throwing themselves into danger for her sake... As a result of his efforts so far, Rairai has already gained himself a loyal dragon companion in Eiai.

The Nightingale "Heroes... Totally not my style, but... But this one is cool. I mean... I guess he is."

Eiai's first encounter with The Nightingale was when she stumbled on him and her ex-husband fighting in the Lane. Naturally, Eiai sided with her ex, and tried to help bring the Ul'dahn hero down, but... It didn't really work out so well. He couldn't even be defeated by her ultimate shoe attack! Realizing he was a powerful foe, Eiai backed off with Hizu and she sort of just laughed it off. She came across him again a few times after that, each time growing more interested in what he was all about. She had a thing for poking at him and nosing into his business, giving her opportunities to tease him more about his heroics. As Eiai started to get more involved with Raih'ir, she ended up becoming more involved with Nightingale as well. Her relationship with him is super playful, pestering him, even when he tries to remain stoic. She thinks he's funny anyway! Though the tension between him and Raih'ir always has her super interested... And she totally has a fan story she's writing about their love spicy, forbidden love. She hopes her fanfiction dreams will come true, someday... Unexpectedly, Nightingale has shown Eiai a lot of care despite her inclinations towards crime, and helped her face difficult situations as well as finding solutions for her. She started to think that... Maybe some heroes aren't so bad afterall. Maybe. Eiai does care for Nightingale in return, wanting to be good friends, even if they may not exactly line up in terms of morality and the paths they both choose.

Seiun Uyagir "A super pretty rose... With the sharpest thorns! She makes Thin Mint happy, so... I like her!"

Eiai wasn't sure how to feel about the other Xaela at first, mainly because Seiun seemed so... Proper and posh, in a way. But she quickly realized that Seiun wasn't the snobby type or anything, so it was easy for them to get along. She's mainly just content that the woman makes her older brother happy, and maintains a pretty favorable relationship with her. Though that has been tested throughout their joined experience with Valentin, often trying to make Eiai sacrifice her, but she has no intention of hurting her. In fact, Eiai hopes to protect her... Not wanting Mazin to lose someone else he loves.

Maiya Maiilah "How could I ever hate you? You're like... Like a sister I would totally meet again, no matter how many times we're reborn."

Knowing Maiya mostly as the Collective's star Doctor from the start, Eiai immediately grew to admire and respect Maiya for her endlessly useful medical knowledge and... Incredible mental prowess in general. Maiya has saved both her and many of the Collective's members many times, and Eiai feels that without her around, many of them would have died long ago. Eiai looks up to her and strives to be more like her in the medical field-- though she is aware that it wouldn't be quite the same, since their healing practices are very different. Eiai has sought Maiya's counsel on many different occasions, though Maiya tended to seek her out first during her roughest times at the beginning of her days in the Collective. Receiving her support through her many crises left a big impression on Eiai and she is very attached to the very loving and warm Keeper, feeling she is able to approach her about virtually anything. They agreed that if they could be reborn from the life stream like the Dotharls say, they would like to come back as Xaela sisters. Maiya betrayed Eiai's trust and broke her heart by doing something Eiai had a lot of trouble forgiving for a very long time. Eiai took her eye in revenge and the two of them remained broken for moons after, but Eiai eventually acknowledged that Maiya truly did care for her, finally coming to forgive her. Eiai has trusted Maiya to help her if things go horribly wrong down her path, and the two of them are able to consider each other sisters again.

Yukio Tsukimi "So smol, so icy, and also really cute!"

When this cold, withdrawn, and incredibly small Raen boy came to the manse, Eiai was very interested in him and latched on pretty quickly. From his first day with them, she had a weird desire to get to know him and found that it was awfully fun to tease the shy 18-year-old. She grew closer to him as they did more together for the Collective, protecting each other naturally as siblings would. Despite his previously icy demeanor, he was able to provide Eiai with warmth when she desperately needed it, and they both mutually adopted each other in a way.

Kiyokage Mizuhiki "There was one time he almost chopped my head off, but hey! He's a cool bean!"

If anyone asked Eiai how she met Kiyo, she would probably laugh and fondly recall that his greatsword nearly decapitated her and ripped through her torso... As unsettling as that sounds, Eiai doesn't seem to hold it against him, as their first encounter was an unfortunate result of her being dragged along in Hizu's nefarious plans against the Collective. Despite the terribly violent first impression, Eiai and Kiyo were able to move past that as her presence in the Collective grew-- eventually becoming oddly mismatched friends who were very much opposite each other in every way. Kiyo was probably the only Xaela man that Eiai had a small spark of an interest in, but her feelings were with Hizu, and she didn't humor the idea for very long. Kiyo provided her with a lot of support through her issues, gaining her trust and allowing her to feel closer to him as time went on. Even when Eiai at some point blamed him for the death of her unborn child, she couldn't let herself hate Kiyo and came to forgive him. She sometimes can't help herself from remembering the incident when she sees him, but she still manages to regard him fondly and respects him, finding his snide remarks and sarcastic humor to be pretty endearing. She knows better than anyone that his words hold merit and he deserves to be listened to more than he is in the Collective.

Jean Lefavre "Absolutely fucking nuts! I'm super into that!!"

For a while, Eiai only thought of Jean as her very interesting coworker who pulled off makeup extraordinarily well, but could never really figure out how to talk with him on a personal level. They ended up working together to gather intel in the Lane and were finally able to bond somewhat over similar, unfortunate circumstances that they had both been through... And Eiai has a strange obsession with some of his... Less than safe for work fictional novels he had written on dragons and temple knights. She is a huge fan of his work and also really enjoys his morbid humor.

Ohvhu'a Jastice "Sometimes I think about asking him if he can fly away with those big ears of his, but it might be kinda rude..."

Ohv is a simple man that Eiai enjoys for that reason. He's mostly happy-go-lucky, and it rubs off on her sometimes if she's in a terrible mood. She is somewhat protective of him, noted by her actions when someone burned him and blinded him in one eye. Eiai went on a rampage to try and end that person's life, regardless of Ohv begging her not to, but she was stopped before she could do anything. It was an upsetting experience for poor Ohv, but Eiai has done her best to make up for it since then. They've helped each other a few times since then, and their friendship is still going strong!

Sanzi Valhan "I hated you for like, five seconds! But now you're my favorite Bunnybitch! My sister from another blister!"

Sanzi and Eiai started off wanting to kill each other when they met during a high-tension situation involving Hizu and a guy named Shiroi. The bunny-eared Xaela continued to threaten and make fun of Hizu, and that pissed Eiai off, which then turned into a pissing contest between her and Sanzi. After a while of that, they ended up just kind of laughing it off and realized that they were actually great friends in the making! Eiai was always excited to see the girl again after that, and eventually, their messed up little bond strengthened to the point of becoming kinda like sisters. They even LARP'd together like some kind of boys love novel. Great memories!

Friends

J'bahlo Tia "Does this dude ever stop smiling?"

Bahlo is a Tia with a seemingly endless amount of tolerance and compassion for Eiai and her problems with getting into trouble. He was there for Eiai through some of her toughest times- even composing a song for her that she still remembers the lyrics to. She knows him as one of the very few who support her going down her own path- regardless of how dangerous and painful it may be... Always welcoming her with open arms and that goofy, contagious smile of his.

Kiryie Kaohka "She's fucking dastardly!"

Eiai met Kiryie through her ex boyfriend, Halo'a, during their outing at the Grindstone, where a series of questionable events between the three had come to pass. Despite the rather strange first meeting, Eiai often found herself unable to resist tagteaming with Kiryie to tease Halo'a (much to his dismay), and she easily got caught up in the girl's michievous nature. They were building an earnest relationship as two females who were clumsy with other females themselves- Eiai being especially enthusiastic about doing her best to keep Kiryie as a friend. Though Eiai hasn't seen or spoken to the woman in a long time, she still cherishes the keepsake that Kiryie had given her as a token of their budding friendship- having crafting it into a necklace that she could keep with her.

Kage Grimm "He fucking annoys me sometimes, but hey, we're bros~"

Eiai met Grimm while she was still a resident of Koh's mansion, having taken the lost teenager in alongside Koh. She found him really odd and didn't really understand him and his weird way of displaying 'emotion', unaware of how his old Shinobi clan had worked... But she eventually warmed up to him, caring for him and trying to teach him what she could about Eorzea. As their familial bonds with Koh fell apart, Grimm followed Eiai to the Collective and ended up fighting him many times over petty things, but they always find a way to make up somehow.

Koke Harrigan "Ah... I miss the way he would clean and stuff."

Koke was one of the people in the Collective who made her feel she belonged in the family, caring for her and offering her his comfort and home-cooked meals whenever she was down. Even without really knowing what a father should be like, Eiai was sure that if she had a real one, she would prefer if he was something like Koke. He was with her through a lot of her pain and mended her emotional wounds many times-- even sacrificing his own emotions to be there for Hizu through his worst stages as well. Though Koke has gone off to Thavnair to be with his sick wife, Eiai hasn't forgotten about him and tries to write to him when she can.

Vilexes Black "Stop touching my ass. I beg you."

Eiai found Vilexes to be obnoxious and hard to tolerate, seeing as how one of the first things she did was touch her ass and weirdly flirt with her and whoever else, but Eiai came to warm up to her after hanging out and drinking with her among another group of Lane-going friends. Eiai decided to stay by her side as her past came back to haunt her, even when Vilexes' evil deeds were revealed. Vilexes helped talk Eiai through some of her problems with Hizu, encouraging her to find her happiness, no matter what she had to do in order to get it.

I'mhati Tia "Like Narudo, but edgier!"

I'mhati was the terrifying man who threatened to kill Eiai at the very beginning, when she was caught tailing the Collective. His continuous threats against Hizu created tension between Eiai and Mhati, and all she wanted was to go against him and convince him to let go of his grudges against her mate. As she became a part of the family, she was finally able to see the man's gentler side, her apprehensiveness regarding him eventually fading into nothing. When he had decided to try giving Hizu another chance, Eiai in turn came to see Mhati in a better light. He was there for her and offered to help both her and Hizu when the threat of losing him was very real. She learned that Mhati was also one of the first to take action when she was kidnapped by a group of ninja- saving her and even going so far as to torture the man who had done her wrong. Eiai came to hold him in very high esteem and greatly appreciated him as a leader. She is unsure of how he feels about her after leaving, and noted that he seemed wary of her. She doesn't seem to particularly care about that, however.

Cocono Cono "A bite-sized mom friend!"

The cake lady of the Collective. Eiai always somehow finds cake in her hands whenever Coco comes into the room... Mysteriously. Though Eiai isn't against it at all, of course. Eiai found the small woman to be weirdly motherly and felt a certain, familiar warmth about her. Eiai can see that she does her best for the family and is incredibly handy in terms of her unique skillsets. Even if her sushi was seen crawling on the floor at some point...

T'leyeh Tia "Totally purrs when given scritches~"

Formerly in the Collective, Eiai saw that Leyeh was very kind and he always tried to defend people if he felt what was happening to them was wrong. She finds that kind of strong will admirable and, even though she hasn't spoken to him in some time, she still remembers him quite fondly.

A'vraiya Tia "He's too cool for me, honestly..."

Eiai had a tense relationship with Vraiya for the longest time, regarding him as a good friend, but she was met with doubt on his end due to his feelings towards the Collective and Kataani. She didn't like the fact that he started to treat her with suspicion and even tugged her along on a bit of a wild goose chase for a time. Things changed for the better after some time, when Vraiya was able to let go of things and start seeing the Collective in a new light. The tension Eiai felt towards him has practically vanished and she doesn't feel she needs to be on guard with him anymore.

Vahsrin'a Saialdhe "He appears outta nowhere sometimes! Makes me wanna pee my pants! He's always been nothing but helpful to me, though!"

An odd man with a somewhat eerie vibe about him, Eiai learned a lot about him pretty early on. She realized that he was pretty warm despite the initial ominous aura-- though her inexperience with tribal Keepers made it difficult for her to process his way of being. He is also an odd ally to the Collective, even though he has had to exercise his power against them a couple of times. Despite that, he has treated Eiai well and has even offered her a place to stay, along with Conjury lessons should she ever wish for it.

Yur Teuslow "Oh yeah. He likes it when girls are mean to him!"

The sarcastic guy who always stood faithfully at his spot in the Lane. Eiai went to him for information for a while and he proved to be a very useful person, putting a lot of effort into making sure things would turn out fine for her and the Collective. She went with him and a few of their other friends to bars and parties sometimes, which allowed them to get a little closer. She misses those times a little bit, but knows that Yur is still always around and doesn't hesitate to make fun of her and her 'bad choice in men' every time he spots her.

M'vaius Tia "Rumble rumble rumble~"

A rumbly Miqo'te known as 'M' who always hid his face and was a bit scary to Eiai for quite a while. She noticed that he was abnormally large and only made a lot of growly noises rather than words she could understand-- but then the day came where he would spook her for fun and even casually used her as an arm rest. It was then she realized that he was actually not so bad and started to feel more comfortable with him. She doesn't get to see him too often, but whenever she does, she finds herself worried about his well-being and hoping that he's happy. She was glad that he was able talk to her using words, but wonders if she should learn how to sign so he doesn't have to force it...

Azrat Lariss "I saw him in a Shiva thong once."

Azrat has proved to be reliable and she had an innate fondness for him, seeing him defend Hizu as much as he could during the hardest times. She knows the two of them had an... Odd past, but doesn't hold that against him. Eiai hasn't had the opportunity to spend much quality time with the man that's been freshly-appointed as her mentor, but the few reports she's been able to make to him have been very pleasant and she does feel that he cares.

Zahri Davigoh "I'm pretty sure I have some kinda outstanding debt with him somewhere... But I'm not even gonna think about it..."

Eiai has called him by the name Purple Freak ever since Hizu gave him that nickname towards the beginning of her arrival. Eiai truly respects the man, even though she and Zahri end up making fun of each other most of the time. (It's totally out of love) Zahri helped save Hizu and, even though he saddled her and Hizu with a very large debt (that she kind of doesn't believe is a real thing), Eiai admires his mental prowess and really enjoys the Mammet gift he gave to her to help her cope with the grief she was dealing with. After a very long discussion, Eiai decided to name the little automaton 'Booby'. Zahri also offered her son a Golden Chocobo Rocker and she... Kind of doesn't know what to do with this kind of thing... But she was happy knowing that he was there to make sure Mirai has the best... In his own special Zahri way. She no longer speaks to him after leaving the Collective, but she doesn't hold any grudges towards him.

Leith Emrys "Don't... Don't ever steal his carrots. You'll die a horrible, agonizing death!"

Eiai was vaguely intimidated by the Magister for a while, knowing him to be the Archmagister's husband and a man who she should exercise caution with. She always knew the Magister was around when a loud crunch would echo through the manse. Unsure of how to interact with him for a long time, she just kind of observed, finding his quirks to be really kind of funny. The little prim sniff, his love for good alcohol, and all the... Carrots. She got brave (or maybe just hungry) and stole one of his fresh carrots right from under his nose. She thought she was probably gonna die, but she ended up pleasantly surprised that he was actually pretty playful and pleasant. Leith had a hand in saving Hizu's life and that earned Leith a place in her heart as well.

The Past

V'hizu Nunh "I... Wish it could have been different. But there was no going back. You couldn't love a monster, afterall. Forget about me and your son... Continue living in those chains of yours."
HhizAV.png

After being caught tailing a group of people who seemed up to something, Eiai found herself wrapped up in the affairs of The Collective-- but mostly because she was interested in Hizu, who saved her when the group caught her and were about to kill her. Learning that he was trapped under a master called Mogg that he couldn't escape from, Eiai held fast onto the idea that she could aid in freeing him. Though she was advised to stay away from him, Eiai felt strongly that there was more to him than the evil person everyone knew him to be, proven by his kindness and protectiveness towards her. Eventually her feelings for him grew, and she decided that she would do what she could to save him in return.

Though she was hurt by him repeatedly for some time, she remained patient with him through his personal changes, until he finally came to his senses and started to treat her much better. They had given each other a reason to look forward to the future... But that didn't last. Eiai couldn't remain happy by his side and, despite everything, she made a mistake that cost their bond. For a while, Hizu wouldn't speak to her and she was sure he hated her... But after they finally talked again, Eiai and Hizu realized that they could never feel that way about each other. After forgiving each other, they have a newfound strength in their bond and think of each other as soulmates.

He fell back on his old ways and he was caught before he could carry them out. Eiai still stayed by his side and tried to take the fall in his place, but Hizu, in a last show of his love for Eiai, owned up to his mistakes and sacrificed himself to save her once more. The Collective seemingly took his life, but it turned out to be the last ditch effort to open a pathway for Hizu and Eiai to change. The Magister and Jebei saved his life, but forced him into a coma brought on by a poison that locked him in his own nightmares. He woke up after two weeks, but... He was not quite the same man he was before it all. Still, Eiai loved him and wanted a future with him.

After many mistakes between them kept piling up and leaving irreparable scars on Eiai, the two of them split on sudden bad terms when Eiai voiced that she was leaving the Collective to search for somewhere she could be happier. He threw his ring away first and slipped back into insanity after stabbing the person they cared for like another son. Eiai made attempts after that to make some kind of amends with him, wanting their son to have his father, but the two of them were unable to meet an understanding on her path and have since relented to saying goodbye to each other for good...

Halo'a Sahn "There was nothing left for us. I don't even think about you anymore..."

A masked Halo'a caught Eiai's eye while she was people-watching in The Quicksand, approaching him with a terrible joke. She was instantly charmed by the man and thought the nickname he had given her, "Blossom", was quite endearing. As they spent time together, they bonded quickly and came to trust each other greatly as the days went by. Eiai somehow felt she could open up completely to him, despite having not known him for very long. They could often be at odds, being quite opposite to each other in many ways, but Eiai obviously cared very deeply for the Miqo'te. She eventually gained strong feelings of affection for him, despite her best efforts to stay away from such feelings. She even become somewhat possessive of him, and often chased after the Keeper when he attempted to distance himself from her. Battling with herself inwardly for far too long, Eiai eventually succumbed to the temptations of her own experiments and has since abandoned Halo'a, her new appearance masking who she used to be. Feeling as though her former self is not her true self anymore, Eiai has complicated feelings in regards to the Keeper. Already having crossed a line she promised to never cross, she doesn't currently plan to see him again.

The Hated

Razalude Zehrotua "Ever since I was small, I couldn't wait until the day I could finally claw that stupid smile off your fucking face. I'll burn you into nothing!"

A Garlean prodigy who worked alongside her parents before she was even born, Razalude held no remorse for any of the sick experiments he had conducted on Eiai and on others, always smiling. That smile is burned into her mind, and it truly makes her feel a rage boil inside. Eiai wishes for nothing more than to destroy him with her own claws, but she must bide her time and wait until he can complete her alongside Valentin...

Valentin Lemarquis "You're... A disgusting old raisin, but you're a means to an end. Once this is over, there's no fucking mercy left in any of us for you."

Valentin, the twisted White Mage and the Doctor working alongside her parents predecessor, Razalude. He was the first to start tormenting Eiai while still in the Collective, up until she finally pieced herself together and willingly went to him. She has had to make decisions she doesn't like, and detests what he stands for, but he has granted her power that no one else possibly could.

Uncertain

Kataani Hawkeye "Sisters?! You really thought we were sisters?! Ahaha! Hilarious!"

Eiai at first feared Kataani and thought of her as an enemy she had to protect Hizu against, but as her relationship with the Collective progressed, Eiai came to realize who Kataani really was... And her intentions. After going through some rough times with the intimidating woman, Eiai answered her pleas to help her brother, Hizu, and she could finally see that underneath all of her power and her scary temper, there was a woman who seemed to genuinely care about her... And consider her family. Eiai liked to be a pest to Kataani sometimes, which often results in her getting into trouble for being disrespectful of her as a higher ranking official-- but at the end of the day, Eiai was willing to do anything for the cake-loving older sister of hers. Even hearing the rumors of bad things Kataani had done in the past, Eiai hadn't wavered from staying by her side. The two of them ended up not seeing eye to eye and their relationship slowly broke down as Eiai's time in the Collective broke her down to near insanity. Kataani asked Eiai to stay away, and Eiai believes that the woman does not care for her as she claimed to.

Lior Emrys "..."

Eiai has encountered the Archmagister more than a few times, but every time she does, she finds herself incredibly intimidated and mildly terrified. (He seems to have that effect on a lot of people anyway.) She had trouble fully accepting his ideals and often doubted his true intentions, but after finally getting a chance to speak with him on a personal level, she was edging closer to understanding. But still, he did not earn her loyalty in any way. The fact that he had some control over her ex-husband was always a source of hatred towards him, as well as the fact that he expected her to sacrifice her son if necessary for the cause.

Sa'ran Kha "Eh."

Sa'ran was Eiai's assigned mentor when she finally joined the Collective. Eiai considered her to be pretty solid guidance for her, impressed by her alchemic compounds that seemed to be useful for quite a number of things. Sa'ran took Eiai under her wing as requested, teaching her the basics of alchemy and-- despite Eiai messing up a few times and destroying her very expensive machine-- was a very gentle and understanding teacher. Eiai thought of her as an incredibly strong woman, especially after witnessing her walk off some terrible injuries way too many times to count. Their relationship seems strained to Eiai now after she left the Collective.

Jebei Dotharl "You won't to save me anymore if the world ends, huh? Funny. I don't think I asked to be saved!"

Eiai hated Jebei for a very long time since coming to the Collective-- childishly finding him to be Hizu's main persecutor and a person that she had no chance of defeating, even if she really wanted to. It was frustrating for her, being unable to protect Hizu from the Dotharl, especially when he plucked Hizu's eye out and ate it right in front of her. She continuously hoped for the worst for him and it came to a head when she was convinced that he had killed Hizu. She planned to take revenge on him through his wife and constantly antagonized them. But then it was revealed that Jebei had actually saved Hizu... And everything was different from then on. Eiai finally gained an appreciation for the man... And respect. She was grateful to him, but she hasn't forgotten the grim last words he gave to her as she parted ways from the Collective.

Tahni'sae Farreihm "He's out there... I guess?

Finding the large Miqo'te to be somewhat unapproachable, Eiai was always aware of him but had difficulties figuring out how to talk to him as well. She only knew of his 'rage' and that he had an incredible strength that she wasn't about to mess with. There were a few occasions where Sae had approached her with concern for her well-being, which was a pleasant surprise for her, seeing as how she had a hard time reading him and didn't think he would care... But on the day she tried to jump from a high place in the Forelands, Sae's attempt to save her showed her that he did care for her. After everything, Sae made an effort to speak to her more and she eventually learned about Rae- his other self within him. Eiai was fond of both Sae and Rae, but Eiai hasn't spoken to either of them in a long time. The last thing she remembers of him was him lashing out at her in frustration, so Eiai is no longer particularly fond of the man.

Abilities and Skills

Magic

Conjurer (Twisted): Eiai was naturally talented at healing magicks, probably due to her birth parents personal experimental work on her. She began training as a conjurer in the Conjurer's Guild from a young age and has a lot of experience healing people aetherically. She has recently gained a major boost in her skill thanks to Valentin, the White Mage who gained his powers in a twisted way. She can now aetherically weave flesh together with incredible ease, has caused the dead to rise from the grave.... And created small disasters. Left unchecked, she can be considered a big risk.
Aethersight: Due to the experiment that is slowly transforming her body and aether to suit that of a dragon, her aether is now centered in her eyes and she can see... A little too much. She can see people's aether, illnesses, flaws, scars... She doesn't have a good grasp on controlling this yet and has to wear glasses or a blindfold so the sight doesn't overwhelm her mind and wear her down aetherically and mentally.

Melee

Dark Knight: Kiyokage had trained Eiai to control her Darkside somewhat. She has had a few successful communions, wielding a scythe that Kiyokage crafted specifically for her tiny frame. The Darkside still remains volatile due to her emotions and she lacks the necessary mastery to fully control it.
Ninja (Iteya Clan): Thanks to Kibaa, Eiai has acquired a ninja soulstone that previously belonged to Kibaa's own deceased master, Shiden. She has trained under Kibaa and has mastery of all three mudras, 'Ten' and 'Chi' and 'Jin'. She can summon a Fuma Shuriken, and can usually use Katon and Raiton. She was given him the clan name 'Iteya' from Kibaa as he tries to rebuild the dwindled clan that now belongs to him.
Claws: She usually keeps her nails sharpened well- her previous defense due to not being any good with weapons. Her own small amount of brute force was what she relied on when it came to hunting and surviving in the wilds growing up.
