General Information

Glittering Sky, or Sky is she is known to the folks she meets, is a Hellsguard conjurer and wanderer of Eorzea. A friend to everyone she meets (whether they like it or not), Sky is disarmingly chill. She has little-to-no self-awareness, but she is an absolute sweetheart with an appreciation for nature.


As typical of a hellsguard, Sky's skin is hued rather red - which contrasts with her bright blue eyes and hair, the latter of which she typically keeps tied back in a simple high ponytail. As typical of some hellsguard, she has a dark coloration at the edge of her broad nose. Her form is muscular, as expected from one of her breeding, but her friendly body language and constantly warm smile all but eliminate any intimidation factor she may have.


Personality Traits

  • Pacifist
  • Friendly
  • Stoner
  • Optimist
  • Conjurer


Sky approaches most conversations with a warm smile, always seeing the silver lining in a situation. She is kind, gentle, and affectionate, but she has very little self-awareness, which causes problems sometimes. In her carelessness, she can be a little accident-prone. If she causes any kind of destruction due to her clumsiness, she tends to shrink into herself like a guilty puppy.

Philosophy & Ideals

Sky believes the world is full of potential friends. She tries to get along with everyone, and is a pacifist - believing in nonviolent conflict resolution. She relies heavily on her intuition, and has a communal attitude regarding the ownership of goods, especially basic needs.

Personality Tidbits and Random Facts

Strengths Flaws
  • Kind: Above all, Sky is kind. She's the type of woman who will give you the shirt off her back...even if it does cause quite a stir in the alley.
  • Healer: As an experienced conjurer and an expert on the medicinal properties of Moko, Sky is a competant healer...and her bedside manner is absolutely lovely.
  • Calm: Though she may cause destruction through her lack of awareness, Sky is not at all prone to anger, and practically incapable of lashing out.
  • Unaware: For various reasons, Sky lacks any kind of self-awareness which can cause a number of problems - be they careless accidents or intruding upon someone else's personal boundaries.
  • Doormat: The downside of her inherent nonviolence is that she tends to just sort of go along with what other people want to do, even if she wants to do something else.
  • Glutton: The woman can eat, and she will eat whatever she can get her hands on, regardless of whose property it is. This isn't done out of malice, but it is a problem nonetheless.
Fears Favorites
  • Hurting People: Sky cannot stand the idea that she might cause another person pain, and strives to live a peaceful, nonviolent life.
  • Moko: Not only does it make her feel more relaxed and comfortable, but she has seen the benefits of its use in medicine.
  • Citrus: Be they oranges or tangelos, Sky loves all things citrus.

Early Life


Sky was the youngest of four siblings in a large family, the children of Stark Horizon and Crimson Sea. Her family was well-known as a famiy of travelling sellswords, and their children would be trained as such. When she was five, Sky snuck out of camp to follow her father, Stark, to see what he would do. She was horrified to witness him killing a young woman. The woman could have been a terrible person, a wanted criminal, and her father was only doing his job, but the sight of such violence left a profound impact on her.

During these years, she practically clung to her older sister, the third child, Blazing Sun. Their two older brothers, Northern Star and Dark Moon, were already training to be sellswords themselves one day, and were always seen wrestling with each other and would tease Sky for not wrestling with them. Sun, meanwhile, was far more gentle, a light in the darkness for Sky...


This of course changed as Sky's siblings got older. Sun began to embrace the sellsword life and began training with her brothers. This was also when Sky began to notice that her siblings and parents were drinking constantly. Drinking, training, always so violent and loud. Sky's gentle heart could not understand this, and vowed not to touch alcohol as it seemed to bring out the worst in her family.

When Sky reached her teens, the time came for her to train. She refused to pick up a weapon, and would flee into the wilderness every time it came up. The (sometimes) calm beauty of nature became her sanctuary in a life of yelling and violence. She learned to meditate to escape the terror of that violent life, but even that wasn't enough. At 17, she was meditating in the Twelveswood, when an elderly traveler happened upon her. They talked for a time, and Sky expressed her frustration that she could not calm her heart. The man offered her some moko, claiming that the herb would allow her body to calm enough for her meditation to prove fruitful. Desperate, Sky partook, and sure enough - she was able to meditate and calm her terrified spirit.

Her meditations from then on proved so successful, in fact, that she felt a true connection to nature unlike anything she had experienced before. So late in the night, she snuck away to Gridania, where she would train in conjury.

She never really saw her family after that.


For the next few years, Sky trained in conjury. She was not exactly the brightest student, but she was eager to learn, and her connection to nature unmistakable. Once her training was complete, however, she wasn't sure what to do. She was used to travelling, but did not want to join adventuring parties due to the inherent violence of the job. So instead she offered her services to travelling caravans, offering free conjury in exchange for sharing food and a tent with her.

And thus she has lived for several years. Moko remained a steadfast habit, and she learned everything she could about the herb - both in medicinal and recreational use. She even learned how to cultivate her own, in time.

Recent Times

During a visit to Limsa Lominsa, Sky happened upon a flyer for an open house at a new cabaret called the Purple Orchid. Thinking that this might be a fun event to go to to make friends, she arrived at the Orchid...only to find out that the event was several days prior. Despite this, she found herself latching onto the new friends she had just made at the Orchid...and made herself comfortable. It was, after all, an 'open house', right? Which meant she could stay there with no issue? Checks out.

After essentially squatting in the Orchid for several days, sleeping on floors and sofas alike, and eating food from their kitchen, she was hired on unceremoniously. Though no one seems to know what to do with her...

Common Uncommon
These are rumors that are easily overheard or public knowledge. Use them freely!*
  • "She's capable, I suppose, but the woman reeks of moko. Are you sure it is safe to leave our care to her?" - Dadari Dari, Caravan Merchant
  • "They say that wanderer hellsguard used to be a sellsword and killed a hundred men before taking her high-horse vow of 'peace'. I find that hard to believe, but anything is possible, I suppose." - Unknown
  • "Sky stayed with me every night during my recovery, mending my wounds and treating my infection until my illness passed. I doubt I would be alive if not for her..." - Ashwin Fuller, La Noscean Merchant
  • "That one won't drink a drop of ale, but will bed anyone with a pulse. Seen her with all kinds of people - men and ladies both. I bet she could break a man. Hehe..." - Buscarron Strongarm, Alehouse Proprietor

* Some rumors may be partially or entirely untrue.

These rumors may take a little digging to find. Use sparingly or ask permission before use.*
  • "Stark's youngest is a disgrace. The wench says violence is beneath her. What does that mean about the rest of us, who have to fight and scrape and spill blood to feed our families? She's a coward, is what she is!" - Steadfast Bull, Sellsword
  • "I saw that one in Mor Dhona not too long ago, pouring whiskey over a grave. Her sister's, I think." - Alison, Local Guide of Revenant's Toll
  • "Take care with that one. If you show her charity or invite her into your home, she will never, ever leave. Trust me on this one." - Resident Caretaker, Mist
  • "The girl doesn't know much, but she is an expert on moko. She knows everything from how to cultivate it to which strains are best for different medicinal purposes.

These rumors are very difficult to find. Ask permission before use.*
  • "If you see your sister, do not talk to her. If she presses the issue, cut her down. She tore this family asunder in her selfishness. As far as I am concerned, she is as responsible for Sun's death as the monsters in Mor Dhona." - Stark Horizon, to Northern Star and Dark Moon

* Some rumors may be partially or entirely untrue.

These are descriptions made by other characters.*
  • "Miss Sky has a quantifiable number of traits that I would consider to be net positives. Of particular note, her kindness quotient exceeds normal values. As far as companions go, I would rate her a solid 9.666 out of 10. Just... keep her away from your fragile items." - Seselia Selia

Partner Friends

  • Seselia Selia

    Seselia was the first friend Sky made at the Purple Orchid, and they immediately hit it least in Sky's mind. Though in Sky's clumsiness, she accidentally stepped on the lalafell's glasses - Seselia was understanding and did not blame Sky for her unintentional actions. Since then, Sky has grown somewhat attached to the lalafellin lass, and is ever eager to help her with whatever she can...though despite her intentions Sky causes more problems than she solves...

  • Lalamune Zazamune

    Sky met Lalamune Zazamune, or Zazzy as she calls him, shortly after meeting Seselia. While they have not spoken often, she already sees the lad as a dear friend, offering him her special tea to soothe his nerves and vaguely flirting with him.

Family Acquaintances
  • Stark Horizon

    Stark, Sky's father, follows a proud family tradition of Sellswords, having raised his children to be much the same. He has disowned Sky due to her pacifist leanings, and blames her for tearing the family unit apart and for all the ill placed on the family since then.

  • Crimson Sea

    Sea feels similarly to Stark, though where Stark's fury is all passionate anger, hers is a cold malice. As far as she is concerned, Sky is dead.

  • Blazing Sun

    Blazing Sun was the only one of Sky's immediate family that she ever felt a true bond with, but this changed as Sun grew older and embraced the family's Sellsword legacy. Sadly, Sun and her adventuring party were killed in an expedition to Mor Dhona.

  • Northern Star

    Unlike the rest of Sky's family, her second eldest brother does not hold any malice against her...though he does not have any love for her either. He means to let her live her life.

  • Dark Moon

    Sky's eldest brother, Dark Moon, shares his father's hatred for his little sister. This is not particularly surprising, as he is the immediate heir to his father's business.

RP Hooks

  • Your Friendly Moko Dealer

    A devout believer in the benefits of Moko, Sky knows everything about it - from its medicinal properties to recreational use - and she is generous in sharing both her knowledge and her product with those that need it. Unlike some, she does not do this for profit, but hey - you'll share that meal with her won't you?

  • Caravan Conjurer

    Sky travels with caravans of travelling merchants, offering conjury in exchange for free travel, food, and other basic necessities. You may have met her during one of these journeys!


RP Preferences:

I am open to all RP backgrounds! Feel free to walkup if you see me out and about in the world with the RP tag on!

However, I have the following requests:

  1. Please keep IC and OOC interactions separate in /say by keeping OOC comments within double parentheses ((like so!)).
  2. Romance is fine if it develops naturally. Please respect that IC and OOC are separate!
  3. Please clear Sky's involvement with any huge storyline with me OOC before dragging her into it. I am typically open to big storylines, though, so don't be afraid to message me!
  4. While Sky does RP in adult-only spaces, please do not randomly proposition me for ERP. That's sexual harrassment, kids! I will blacklist you.

Thank you! ♥️
