Kanako Moonweaver was once thought to be dead. While many accepted this fact, others knew something was amiss when a woman named Marigold came around. After all, she looked just like Kanako aside from a few changes. With the sudden return of this woman, she has taken what she has learned and slowly becoming a seemingly stronger woman. She hopes that she can finally forge a new and final path from herself and remain on such a path. She is still with The Limitless Reliquary and although she considers herself a relic hunter, she hopes to do more with her life.
Kanako’s rose red hair perfectly compliments her fiery personality. She usually styles it into a ponytail, though, there are a few occasions which she wears it down in a more messy fashion. Her eyes mostly match her hair, the only thing stopping it from being a perfect match is the fact that her right eye is an unnatural orange color. She use to cover that eye with an eyepatch but she finally come to accept that there is nothing to really hide.
Physique & Markings
Kanako is a rather slim woman who does her best to keep her figure, without it, she would likely be unable to do all the things she does now. She’s a fairly busty woman, but depending on your standards, might not be seen as much. On the back of her right wrist looks to be a fairly faded tattoo, if you see it, then you’re considered lucky as she often keeps it covered.
Hygiene & Attire
She keeps herself as clean as possible when she can, she hates the feeling of being sweaty, grimy, and just plain gross. In the middle of combat and while camping, it’s something that can’t be avoided and she understands that, but she will take a bath to rid herself from it as soon as possible. When it comes to attire, she often wears leather and cloth that compliment her figure. She looks to comfort while still trying to look at least a bit fashionable. When it comes to armor, she has learned to accept clunky armor and favors it more over fighting in leather. For armor, she doesn’t care about style, she just needs it to protect her.
Unstable. Compassionate. Headstrong. Kanako has been through quite a lot in her life and it certainly shows. She has a difficult time with dealing with very strong emotions such as sorrow and anger, this can lead her into going into a deep depression or temper-driven meltdown. She is a very compassionate person and it often leads her to think that it’s always her fault if something goes wrong and it’s because she is so compassionate that she has to deal with such strong emotions and unfortunately, being unable to deal with them. Overall, Kanako is a nice person to be around despite her little quirk and she’s the most loyal friend one can ever hope for. Because of her often seen as “blind” loyalty, it brings her to being a bit too head strong and not thinking about a plan thoroughly. She thinks of one outcome and what might be at stake and that’s essentially it..

Kanako has a tendency to not stay in one place for a long time and can be found in a variety of locations, though a few stand out more than others.
■ The Shroud: Low.
■ Gridania: Low.
■ Ishgard: Moderate.
■ Dravania: Low.

■ Merchants: She started off as a merchant and although she no longer walks on that path, she is still known by many common merchants.
■ Lancer’s Guild: Her basic training was done during her time with the Caravan but when she was out on her own, she went to them for further guidance. Although a loose connection, she still keeps in touch.
■ Gridania: Once most of her troubles were set aside, her and her sister lived in Gridania, trying to start their merchant careers. Times have changed and that is no longer the case, but she still sees the place as ‘home’.
The following items are things that Kanako carries on her 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.
■ Coinpurse: Gil has to go somewhere.
■ Linkpearls: She has a few contacts she needs to keep in touch with.
■ Hidden Dagger: She always keeps it somewhere just in case.
■ Rations: And lots of them.
■ Canteen: It’s probably filled with alcohol most of the time.
■ I will Combat RP. One-shot RP. Long-term RP. Dramatic plots. Heavy, feeling-driven plots. Romance. Sexual Tension. Serious injury. Temporary injury and incapacitation of mind or body. Temporary captivity or imprisonment. Assassination attempts. Rivalries. Deep platonic friendships.
■ Ask about Torture that leaves behind lasting, long-term effects (aka, longer than 3 months),. Long-term and/or permanent injury. Long-term captivity or imprisonment. Significant tampering of the mind. Anything that is dramatically character-changing, or may have extremely negative implications for my character.
■ I will not ERP. Allow Lore Breaking. Allow my character to be killed, injury that will leave my character incapacitated, Allow godmodding, and OOCly planned romances.
■ Marigold? Some may recognize her when her hair was a light orange and she carried eyes which looked like a fire. However, she now looks more like a rose. You may recognize but be unable to quite put your finger on it. If you are able to, then maybe this can prove your suspicion that she wasn’t truly dead.
■ Kanako? Or it can be quite the opposite. You never knew Marigold was tied to Kanako and thought she was truly dead. To see a woman who was thought to be dead walking around the place again is certainly a strange sight. What happened to her?
■ Bounty. After attacking a member of the Black Lotus, a bounty has been put up on her head. They want her either dead or alive, it’s up to you if you decide to take it.
■ The Limitless Reliquary. She is a member of a relic hunting company and helps run their investigation branch. Perhaps you are looking for their aid?
■ The Smuggler (If you know Marigold and Kanako are the same) She was once associated with the renowned smuggler, Tray’ju. Perhaps you don’t know about their recent disagreements and how she left him and still wish to make business. Or maybe you assume she kept some of those connections she made along the way…

■ Concept: Kanako's original 'concept' is sourced from a lot of different material, including video games, anime, literature, and common tropes. Most notable ones being her appearance and her weapon of choice being based on Kyoko Sakura from Madoka Magica.
