Katrina Nyx--known as Trina to her friends--is an outgoing Midlander from Ul’Dah. A world traveler suffering from pangs of homesickness, she has returned to her birth city, where she currently spends most of her time. She can often be found in the Ossuary, browsing the books, or haunting the edges of the Quicksand, observing the patrons.
Vivacious and opinionated, Katrina is often found in the thick of whatever's going on, either soothing tempers or goading them. Though she says she's a tenderhearted scholar, she doesn't suffer fools, and is not a pacifist in the least. If a whack on the head with one of her many heavy tomes seems necessary, nothing will stop her from hauling back and letting it fly, short of possible damage to the book itself!
While scholarly study is her primary interest, she never seems to be far from a rapier.
NOTE: This is a constant WIP and will be edited and fleshed out as time goes on.

Katrina Nyx is a tiny specimen of the Hyur race. However, her vivaciousness and cheerful energy make it hard to remember how small she really is.
She is built slightly and is not overtly muscular, with a traditional hourglass shape. Dark of hair, Katrina is a rather typical member of her species. The only visible exceptions are the sharp nails--almost claws--that tip each of her elegant fingers. Even her extremely pale skin isn't out of the norm, as she seems to take pains to keep her skin untouched by the sun.
It contrasts vividly with the jewel toned blues, purples, and reds she likes to use as hair dye and makeup.
She almost always wears clothing in varying shades of blue, purple, red, and black, made of luxurious fabrics and soft leather. When she’s working in the libraries she loves, doing research, her clothing is usually sleeveless and tight to her body, to prevent accidental inkwell spills on the precious books and scrolls.
Katrina has no body shame, and in fact seems to take great delight in flaunting her body. Most of her clothing tends to reveal some measure of skin, even if it’s simply the tops of her thighs between her boots and shorts.

Biography

The Voss family are rich merchants from Ul'dah, desperate to rise up in status to that of nobility. To that end, they have focused their efforts on increasing the aetheric power and control of their members through careful breeding, resulting in a large number of thaumaturges and arcanists in their ranks. They hope that between their money and aetheric power they will either marry into nobility, or earn it on their own.
Katrina is one of the results of that careful breeding. Sadly for the Voss clan, Katrina is little more powerful than the average mage. As a result, her father--a fanatic who believes the family's standing is more important than all else--engaged in various experiments throughout Katrina's childhood. One of her father's experimental attempts involved teaching Katrina the art of the rapier, in preparation for learning to be a red mage--one of the few branches of magic the family as a whole had no members with skill in. However, due to the abuse suffered at the hands of her father, she faked her own death and ran from her family as a teen, long before her father was able to track down a tutor in red magery.
To symbolize the break from her family, she has changed her last name from "Voss" to "Nyx." She indulges in all sorts of behaviors that her family would deem "unladylike" with great relish. To her mind, the less ladylike she acts, the more likely it is that even if her family someday realizes that she's alive, they won't want her back.
She takes great pride in being a healer of some skill--a talent that the Voss family deems worthless.
One of the few things she took from her upbringing was her love of the rapier. Her father would be overjoyed to find out that she is a talented red mage. Sadly for him, he doesn't even know she's still alive, and "talented" doesn't mean "exceptionally powerful." She's average. Just the way Katrina likes it.

Romantic Interest

Kanesane Tatewaki - ((WIP))

Platonic Love

Camhi Naajal - She and Katrina are heartsisters. Both love books and researching obscure knowledge. For years the two have shared space in various libraries around Eorzea, and a rock-solid friendship blossomed naturally from the constant exposure. Camhi is Katrina's subordinate and right-hand researcher in Renaissance.
Kayis Asader - This Miqo'te mix introduced himself to her table when he overheard that Camhi Naajal was single. He and Katrina have since developed a complex friendship.

Good Standing

Syrioh Landion - She met this Seeker at a Crimson Iris event when the seats were all taken. She sat at his table, along with Camhi Naajal, Kayis Asader, and Mikasa Crowe. He's an artist, and he offered to draw the members of her party. Since then, they've become close friends and occasional lovers.
Maetirael Bleibornwyn - Leader of the Renaissance free company. Katrina looks up to Maetirael, and strives to be the best that she can so that Maetirael’s vision might be fulfilled. Friends for years, they met when Maetirael had trouble researching the specifics of a job she had taken on, and Katrina helped her find the information she needed.
Granite Tide - If Katrina were to be intimidated by anyone, it would be Granite Tide, The Warlord (or master tactician) of Renaissance. She looks up to him, though she feels he could stand to loosen up a bit (or a lot).
