General Information
Florian is a roaming debt collector and bounty hunter with a thick ledger of contracts that takes him to all corners of Eorzea. He is an unfriendly presence wherever he goes, quick to violence and conflict. Those he pursues find no peace until he has what he’s been bidden to collect, exploiting every cruel bit of leverage he can find.
Your next word will be gurgled ‘round blood should you continue
Red. Dark brown with paler highlights. Dark. Muscled. Nasally.
Haughty irritation. Right-handed. Numerous. None. Severe.
Hair & Eyes
Short brown hair, shot through with paler streaks. A small goatee and neatly kept sideburns. He doesn’t seem to get much sleep, judging from the permanent smudges under his eyes.
Physique & Markings
Tall and muscled, but not enough to impede the remarkable agility he employs in his bladework. Scars are the only things that mark him.
Hygiene & Attire
He maintains his traveling clothes and armor well, spending most of his coin in its upkeep. When out of armor he prefers simple, if severe, styles and colors, never displaying much in the way of jewelry or other accessories. Clean as best he can be while traveling, especially when it comes to keeping his hair and goatee trimmed short.
Florian often resembles a walking stormcloud, glowering his way through forests and streets alike. His expression is nearly always on the angry side of neutral, a downturn to his lips beneath narrowed eyes and a furrowed brow. Smiles are rare. He can participate in civil conversation, but should something occur to offend him such apparent politeness quickly disintegrates.
Low and somewhat monotone.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
He appears to act wholly in self interest and despite his Ishgardian heritage makes a point of spitting on its religious, political, and social institutions.

OOC Note
I prefer freeform combat, but also rely on dice in situations where both characters seem more evenly matched and it's requested. I've no problem with Florian getting his ass kicked (and often) so long as there's no blatant god-moding that wasn't agreed upon beforehand.

Sixth Astral Era
Born to a pair of Durendaire knights, Florian followed in their footsteps and swore himself to the service of the House when he was thirteen. His childhood was severe and filled with many hours of training and squire-work until he was eventually knighted on his eighteenth birthday. He never distinguished himself overmuch from other knights, but he was generally well-liked and had a level head for tactical planning. In his twenty-sixth year his patrol was ambushed by dragons and his closest friend revealed to be a Dravanian spy. Only two survived, Florian among them. Because of his close association with the slain spy, he was accused of collusion. His guard captain, a sympathetic soul, gave him a choice between Witchdrop and exile. He chose exile.

Seventh Umbral Era
Since leaving his homeland, Florian has dipped into a variety of professions, all of which depend on his swordarm. Simple mercenary work lead to bounty hunting which then lead to debt collecting for anyone who would pay him an attractive sum. He travels between the three city-states after various marks and has garnered a small reputation for his often underhanded and ruthless methods.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
His book is as thick as ever with debts he’s duty-bound to collect, continuing his work and seemingly indifferent to his status as an exile of the Holy See. With the end of the Dragonsong War he may have a chance to appeal his exile, but it would appear he has no desire to go back to his homeland.
