To say that this character is a "work in progress" would be a massive understatement. I've yet to really be able to fully develop Garre as a character as of yet but fully intend on doing so in the immediate future. What you see on this page will be altered or scrapped entirely as I get more into the character.

WARNING: Some content on this page will be mature, but this will be kept to a minimum.

General Information
Before the Calamity, Garre Brenna was an adventurer with little more to her name than just a few gold pieces, a sword, and an overwhelming sense of wanderlust. Too often had she found herself on hard times, forcing herself into taking several odd jobs and services just to make ends meet. When the Calamity came, she found herself buried in a cave near the city of Ul'dah, desperately clinging to life for several days until rescue crews from the city had found her. As a result of this event, Garre had a revelation that led her to taking up a very lucrative career in treasure and relic hunting. She only saw modest fame and fortune, which was enough to allow her to live comfortably for the time since.
That'll cost you a pretty gil.
Hair & Eyes
While Garre might try various different hairstyles, they all share a common theme - black, with her bangs and highlights dyed white or light-gray. She prefers shorter hairstyles that do not reach or go further than her shoulders. Her bangs are usually pushed to the side to allow herself to see. Her eyes are light-brown with no abnormalities.
Physique & Markings
Garre maintains a very lean physique, toned appropriately for one who spends a majority of their time exploring the land, searching for treasure. She doesn't make much of an effort to keep herself pristine, however, with there being several scars along her person. She sports one over the bridge of her nose, and another on her lower-left cheek - which is more recent, and can be seen covered by a make-shift bandage.
Hygiene & Attire
By self-admittance, her hygiene is not a very high priority. She makes an effort to bathe as often as possible, but finds herself diving into various treasure hunts which may ruin her complexion frequently, leaving dirt and grime over her body and attire. She, at least, makes sure that her aroma doesn't reflect her sometimes days-worth of dungeon-dives. In terms of her attire, it is kept as conservative as possible while remaining uniquely-stylized to her taste. A white overcoat drapes over her form, held together at the middle by various belts and toolkits. A wrap, tied around her bosom, does very little to leave much to the imagination; she wears short trousers, barely covering her thighs, which then have straps to her thighboots. Generally she keeps to a majority-white, or majority-black hue theme with her clothing with some red accents.

Psychological Profile
Garre can never take herself too seriously, having accepted more of a "life is too short" perspective. She is upbeat, positive, and fancies herself humorous most of the time. Even in a serious situation, she may find herself being the first to crack a joke. Many might also mistake her for being a flirt as she's affectionate, but she's not known to have taken many, if any, lovers during her time as an adventurer.
Garre is most certainly not soft-spoken, often brash and direct when speaking with others - even total strangers. While her dialect was developed when still living with her kinfolk and family in Gridania, her mannerisms had developed more due to her leaving her home behind and traveling to La Noscea. After spending time around the isles, her accent had grown to the familiarity of their inhabitants.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
Her carefree nature has resulted in the development of a more callous, direct, and brash attitude towards others. She isn't one to necessarily beat around the bush - when an opinion comes to her mind, she will speak it loud and clear for all to hear, even information that might be best kept private. Many might mistake her as being a huge flirt, as she is rather affectionate, but it is not known if Garre has ever taken any lovers. That being said, being such a carefree spirit Garre appreciates the more usual vices in life; good grog, warm conversation, and either a man - or a woman - to share a night with, as a way to relieve stress.
● The perpetual search and discovery of treasure and riches.
● Sharing the adventure with others, as cliche'd as it may be.
● A good mug of cold ale.
● Either a handsome man - or a gorgeous woman - to wake up in the morning next to.
● Arrogance.
● Stupidity and ineptitude at even the most basic common tasks.
● Garleans
● Adaptability to certain common weapons.
● Heightened skills of observation.
● Expert-level Swordplay/Fencing.

Combat Forms & Styles

Although proficient in the use of many different weapons and styles, Garre primarily favors the use of the Gunblade. She has adapted it to her style of agile, fancy footwork to gain an advantage over her foes and protect her comrades. However, despite the lethal combination that is prevalent with the weapon, Garre is not known to outright slay her enemies - her focus more on incapacitating them. Her blade is devastating but dulled for this purpose, and she restrains herself from using its primary function - the aetherical cartridges to empower its ballistic capability - as much as possible. Certain enemies, however, do not receive this treatment; she has not met one foe yet that doesn't deserve mercy.

OOC Note
This player is able to learn and adapt to any style of roleplaying so long as it's simple and easy to learn. RP Combat through the use of dice rolls might be preferred over free-form combat depending on the situation.

Being that she is still relatively young, Garre has not experienced much in her life.
Disclaimer: Much of this is privy to change as information regarding lore is discovered over time.
Sixth Astral Era
Garre was born as the second daughter of four in a tribe of Keeper Miqo'te in Gridania. Her childhood, however, was not very memorable, easily forgotten after some time away once she'd left when she came of age. She kept in contact with naught but one of her siblings throughout her travels, and spend most of her early years away from home living among the inhabitants of La Noscea. While she wasn't exactly fit for the seas, she hopped on a vessel bound for Thanalan where she figured she'd find riches beyond her wildest imaginings.

Seventh Umbral Era
Despite that she wasn't able to find the fame and fortune she had been looking for, she was able to make a modest living cleaning the tables of the Quicksand. Every now and then she would venture into the more lucrative dealings of the body in order to make ends meet, but eventually found her way into the prospective occupation of mining - figuring that it wouldn't take much. When the Calamity hit, however, Garre was trapped in one of the mines, which had caved in all around her. She struggled to make her way out, but ended up digging too far in to find ancient ruins, with treasures ripe for plundering - a sign that she had graciously taken to mean that she had found her calling.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
Garre had still been able to make a modest living out of her treasure and relic hunting, her reputation spread somewhat throughout the city of Ul'dah and her findings had been offered to the city in order to help fund the influx of refugees - with a decent percentage of the cut given back to her. However, with her frequent spelunking, she had crossed ill paths with several other rivals and opposing groups. Her time around Ul'dah, amassing her modest fortune, has also helped her tap into knowledge of the known criminal elements around the city - which she makes use of to perform simple vigilante work in the more destitute parts of the city where the Brass Blades aren't able to assist.

NPC Rumors

Some of these rumors are untrue, speculation, or are greatly exaggerated.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard. Use these freely!
"Ain't never caught her name, but there ain't many gray-skinned cats dwelling around these walls. I jus' remember hearing about some cat-girl turnin' tricks outside of the Quicksand with skin like hers. Could be anyone, who knows?" — Rumor Monger.
◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!
"Ah, yes. I remember the name, Garre. Just days after the Calamity, someone by that name made a generous donation in treasures and findings to the city's coffers. They could have made more than enough to join the elite caste of this city, but they only took a modest portion of it." — Ul'dahn Treasury Secretary.
"Heard they found her in one of the mines after the Calamity hit. Figured they'd have been dead after, seeing how scrawny and meek they were, but no - there she were, sitting on a pile o' gold with a huge smile on her face!" — Brass Blade.
◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely overheard. Please ask before using!
"Folks 'round these parts of the city share stories about this an' that. One of 'em that sticks out is that of some white-coated cat-lady bobbin' an' weavin' between groups o' thugs an' takin' 'em out without any effort." — Ul'dahn Streetmonger.
"You shut yer mouth. We don't speak about the White Sparrow when folks can hear, might get us into trouble with the wrong people." — Rumormonger.

RP Info

Location & Probability
Places where the character is very likely to be seen
Ul'dah: More than Likely
General Thanalan Area: Likely
La Noscea: Less than Likely
Most of these aren’t public, and would have to be asked after!
Ul'dah: As a current citizen of Ul'dah, and after having donated a fair portion of her treasure findings, Garre has received moderate prestige among the citizenry of the city; her alter-ego, on the other hand, has generated a light amount of hysteria among the seedier underbelly of Ul'dah.
IC Inventory
The following items are things that this individual carries on their person at all times. These are noted for pickpockets, and those watching her closely. This information is meant to be a prompt for insight and is not to be meta-gamed, though feel free to use this information if it comes up logically in RP (pickpocketing, a search, etc) with use of a simple /tell.

RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play generally anything involving common adventuring, or complex storylines that will develop my character on a more fundamental level.
Ask about anything that might involve erotica. Yes, perpetuating the stereotypes of both the server Balmung and of female Miqo'te, this character is available for erotic role-playing (ERP) with certain limitations. Generally speaking it's only done for the sake of developing character story.
I won't play anything that might involve the death or mutilation of my character in any way.
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.
■ Garre is a very prolific treasure hunter known around Ul'dah, though still has a ways to go in order to build up fame and respect. She often finds herself in different situations at convenient (or inconvenient, depending on the outlook) times.

Player Information
Player Note
This character is utilizing third-party texture mods to alter their appearance; using TexTools, Garre is wearing the Bridesmaid's Tights using the T&F Hosiery Collection for better-detailed tights and undergarments. This coupled with the Scion Traveler's outfit obtained in the Stormblood MSQ dyed Metallic Silver rounds out her look.

Character Concept
Garre is based very loosely on a few character concepts. The first, and foremost, is on the "full-time archaeologist" made popular by the likes of Indiana Jones; Garre's love of treasure hunting often gets her into danger, through which she uses her quick wits and (sometimes) charm to get out of.
