Eponine is a magic wielder with an incline towards conjury and arcany and astrology. After being separated from a cloister of holy maidens, her aether depletion has severely dampened her healing magic. As such, she has resorted to other means of healing like alchemy and has taken the role of the Chirurgeon.
Born to a highborn Elezen mother and a bastard father, Eponine was not treated favorably in the Lancret House. Her mother did little to fix the animosity and seemed more focused on Sebastian, her only son and Eponine's half-brother. Sebastian was much more kind to Eponine and often escorted her to her tutors or let her tag along to watch the proving grounds. Other than that, she had a relatively normal childhood, albeit a sheltered one.
In her fifteenth winter, she was given a peridot pendant as the Ishgardian sign of chaste maidenhood and began to participate her courting seasons. Her genuine care for her fellow man was mostly seen as an ulterior motive and reliable gossiping circles painted her as a manipulative harpy. She did not understand why her potential suitors would suddenly drop their lunches at the last minute. It left quite a blow to her self-esteem and a questioning of her self-worth.
She did eventually become engaged twice - once to a studenthood sweetheart who abruptly left Ishgard after a harrowing miscarriage, and the last to a 'bottom-tier' merchant house who wanted to use the Lancret connections to peddle medical wares among the high houses. Eponine's mother caught wind of the second suitor's motives and dissolved the contract and instead sent Eponine off on a medical pilgrimage with her cousins to foreign lands for medical summits and Eorzean Alliance related missions that required aid.
Petite and lithe, Eponine's skin is light from the Coerthan winters, but not sickly thanks to her current bout in Gridania. She is quite small for her race along with her ears, which was something inherited from her father. There is a kind of beguiled beauty about her that comes from her mother and her eyes are a vivid shade of green much famous under the House Lancret. The dark brown hair that frames her face has lightened much under the gentle Gridanian sun; she could play a Wildwood Elezen at first glance, which makes her integration there easy.
Kind, gentle, with a touch of naivety, Eponine was much too delicate under the strain of highborn society. Her good nature wilted under the harsh societal judgment in Ishgard, many of which were much too shrewd and suspicious of her to ever consider her helpfulness and care genuine. As such, she was branded as undesirable and held little power during her courting season.
But Eponine was hard-pressed to let such a thing dampen her kindness. Where she lacked the street smarts to survive in places like the Brume or the seedy levels of Ul'dah, she's quite literate and articulate befitting her station. Her open wonder for the world has made her quite adept at magic which was something the Carline Canopy took notice of when she first arrived in Gridania.
Eponine absolutely abhors violence, which puts her in a vulnerable position as she travels through Eorzea as she has little means to defend herself. The only exception is on the surgical floor where she is covered in blood and flesh on a usual day.
While Eponine does not wish to engage much combat, she does understand the necessity of it. She primarily is empowered in sufficient conjury, light arcany, and is refreshing her knowledge on Astrology, as it's Sharlayan version is becoming much more popular in Ishgard.
Her elemental affinity is Earth.

Greyskulls Initiation: To protect her from the Cloister's retaliation upon her leaving it, Valacor took her in as asylum under the Greyskull's banner. She earned her keep by healing the wounded pirates and gathered a copious amount of corrupted crystals to save a prominent member, who was being manipulated by an Ascian. They engaged the paragon in an exhaustive battle and thanks to her corrupted carbuncle harnessing the crystals, they were able to smote the Ascian into oblivion.
