Personality Tidbits

  • Behind the gentle smile and the petite frame lies a voracious appetite that puts even the largest Roegadyn to shame.
  • Innuendo is often lost on the young woman, leading to situations and jokes at the oblivious girl's expense.
  • She has a tendency to stammer when flustered or uncomfortable which can make understanding her difficult.
  • Lily has a tough time traveling by Aetheryte. Prone to bouts of vertigo and nausea, she would rather take a long walk home than use an aetheryte crystal right next to her.
  • Lily's tolerance for alcohol is quite low. As she often goes out drinking with her alcohol-loving friends, she can end up quite inebriated trying to keep up.
  • Though she has done generally well for herself at her shop, Lily has trouble accumulating a substantial amount of wealth because she is always giving charity to virtually every cause she comes across.
  • Lily has felt the sting of love and loss on more than one occasion, and she now has become obsessed with keeping her closest friends safe. Friends that are hurt or in danger will send the woman after them with a reckless abandon.

  • Resilient - Deceptively resilient despite her gentle nature, Lily is not one to give up easily.
  • Empathetic - A great listener, Lily can generally get most people to open up to her about their troubles. She likes nothing more than being the one folks can open up to.
  • Naive - Lily has very little life experience, especially in matters pertaining outside of Gridania.
  • Overly-trusting - Lily is quick to assume everyone has good intentions, and generally can be pretty easily tricked or talked around.
  • Insecure - As the daughter of a high ranking Wood Wailer Commander, Lily worries that she has become a disappointment to him.
  • Social Anxiety - Social situations where Lily feels she has little control can cause her to spiral down a path towards a panic attack.

  • Zozola Zola

    Zozola or "Zozo" as she prefers to be called is one of the Whispered Wish's hosts. Lily met her one evening while entertaining at the Whispered Wish and Lily found her to be pleasant company. Later that evening, the two shared two shots of the Wish's infamous Mystery Shots together; conconctions that induce random feelings and effects to the imbibers. When the shotglasses lay empty, Lily felt an intense fascination with Zozo, bordering on obsession. As fate would have it, Zozo's shot rendered her in the same type of state towards her, and they soon found themselves huddled together on the couch, spilling life stories. The two related their pasts to each other: Lily telling of her loneliness and isolation while Zozo related her feelings of helplessness in her life's future being dictated for her by her family. Though the effects of the drinks would later fade, the close bond the two shared that night would not and they would continue to see each other long into the night during future Wishing Hours.

    Those familial ties would soon bind her, as Zozo felt compelled to flee from the Wish to protect her closest friends from her family's terrible retribution. Unwilling to abandon her beloved friend, Lily worked together with Daerin Roda and Lalamune Zazamune from the Wish to mount a daring rescue operation regardless of the personal risk. Thankfully, they were able to recover Zozo from a grim fate and spirit her back to the Wish safely.

    By her side through most of her recovery, Lily spent much time with Zozola to ensure the trauma she sustained during the ordeal would be lessened as much as possible. Their friendship grew closer, and the two found every excuse imaginable to spend their days and evenings near each other. Many moons later, Lily would soon come under her own duress from the Voidsent Lydaea who subsequently possessed and stole Lily away leaving Lily's friends to believe she had died. Devestated by the loss of her friend but suspicious that there was something more to Lily's disappearance, Zozola played a pivotal part in destroying Lydaea's control over Lily. After such a harrowing ordeal in which Lily was nearly lost forever, Lily and Zozola both realized that there was more to their feelings then mere friendship and bared their hearts to each other. Professing their love for each other, the two swore they would be at each other's side through anything and look forward to a brighter future together.

    Zozo's Bio

  • Lalamune Zazamune

    Lily and Lalamune are close friends, many parallels running between the pair. Sharing a love for reading, Lily and Lalamune struck up a strong friendship over several nights at the Whispered Wish as they would drink together and share companionship over many topics of discussion. Charming, smart, and a wonderful mixer of drinks, "Zaz" has become one of Lily's closest friends and confidants. The two's bond would only deepen over time as they worked together to save their mutual friend Zozola from a horrible fate. Zaz brings a learned perspective to Lily's relatively sheltered life, teaching her on many topics the young woman didn't even know existed, while Lily's unique life experiences have proven to be captivating for the scholar.

    These days, Zaz and Lily are many things together: aetherical peers, friendly martial rivals, occasional lovers, and above all else - the dearest of friends.

  • Daerin Roda

    Daerin and Lily primarily met when Zozola was taken away from the pair by her family. Daerin's fanatical loyalty to her charge and Lily's devotion to her friend would see the two soon become friends working together to bring the lass back to them. Though the two were eventually successful, Daerin and Lily remained companions that had been drawn together by the circumstances. Daerin carries herself with a quiet confidence and commanding presence that Lily respects and admires, and she finds herself listening to Daerin's advice above most others.

    Daerin has been brushing up Lily on her martial techniques with the lance, as Lily wanted to better prepare herself for an eventuality where she simply couldn't heal a problem away. With Daerin's assistance (And her friendly rivalry with Zaz growing), Lily's skill with the lance is slowly improving. Lily is happy for her growing skillset, but secretly is happy just for the excuse to spend more time with her beloved friends.

  • Reina Cantlin

    Lily and Reina met at a bar where the two forged a friendship over -many- tankards of ale and glasses of whiskey. A carefree woman of sailing and adventure, Reina's stories of the places she's been and the sights she has seen have fascinated the otherwise sheltered girl. Lily finds Reina's lifestyle to be captivating and finds herself drawn to the woman in a way she finds hard to explain to herself. Lily often found herself spending evenings listening to Reina's many stories and enjoying her sharp wit. Lily hopes to join Reina on one of her next voyages someday, sailing off into the horizon in search of the adventures she has only read about.

    For a time, the two were inseparable companions, spending time together and going onto adventures. However, Lily was most recently involved in trying to rescue her dear friend from danger when Reina got into some trouble with pirates. Reina was abducted one evening, leaving Lily alone and afraid she had once again been abandoned in her life. Reina managed to escape, though Lily had some dangerous experiences along the way. More protective of her beloved friend than ever now, Lily is carefully trying to navigate the narrow path between being overly-nurturing and suffocating the free-spirited woman. Recovering from the ordeal, Reina has since begun to travel a new path, spending time apart from Lily in order to find herself after her harrowing ordeal much to Lily's sorrow.

  • Farah Forsythe

    Lily met Farah in one of her very few excursions to a social event. Meeting at a cafe, the two quickly formed a rapport and became close friends. A natural troublemaker, Farah serves as a foil to Lily's reserved nature and the two often end up getting into hijinks together. Farah is slowly helping Lily to come out of her social shell, and encourages her at every opportunity. Despite being older than her Lily sees Farah as the older sister she never had, and trusts Farah completely. She would be at her friend's side at a moment's notice if needed.

    Farah has begun to forge her own path in life, recently meeting a fiance and having other life circumstances change. Lily continues to support her best friend as much as possible, but secretly worries that Farah's increasing responsibilities will eventually take Farah away from her for good - an unlikely outcome, but something haunting Lily's daydreams nonetheless.

  • Bhaldbyrm Anch

    Lily found a kindred spirit when she met Bhaldbyrm at the Whispered Wish one day. A giant of a man with a gentle spirit, Lily found that the two of them both shared the same social anxiety, especially when it came to matters of romance. Now that Lily is slowly overcoming that anxiety, she finds herself doing her best to gently prod Bhaldbyrm along the same course. The two have become close friends, comfortable enough around each other to tease one another about each other's insecurities. She finds herself beginning to eagerly anticipate their evenings together, whether at the Whispered Wish or otherwise. Bhaldbyrm would likely do anything to keep Lily safe, and by that same token, Lily would have her friend's back at a moment's notice if he became hurt.

    [Bhaldbyrm's Bio: https://bhaldbyrm-anch.carrd.co/]

  • La'nette Eve

    La'nette is Lily's maid and assistant at her Apothecary Shoppe. She is a cheerful woman, absolutely dedicated to her craft to the point of obsession, and excellent at her job. La'nette is wholeheartedly loyal to Lily, going out of her way to ensure that Lily gets ample rest and relaxation while in her care. From cooking to cleaning to fighting to companionship, Lanette does it all with a cheerful smile on her face.

    Lily did not originally intend to hire a maid for her shop, but when La'nette misconstrued one of Lily's statements as a contract of hire, Lily could not disappoint her when she saw how overjoyed she became. All things considered, Lily is grateful to have La'nette, the shop having never looked better and the volume of work once again within managable levels due to La'nette's assistance. Lily still struggles with how to handle the fussy maid, particularly when it comes to La'nette's pampering of her wellbeing. Lily's humble and simple nature sometimes leave her feeling a bit ostentatious when engaging in such indulgences as bubble baths and massages given by the maid. She does her best to oblige the maid during these moments, even managing to enjoy it sometimes, but the dramatic lifestyle change has been quite the challenge for Lily to grasp.

    [La'nette's Bio: ]

  • Mynne Rosalia

    Mynne is a spunky young conjurer acolyte that Lily was assigned to assist in mentoring. Mynne is hotheaded, spunky, and a socializer... so everything Lily isn't, in other words. Nevertheless, Lily and Mynne get along great, with Mynne appreciating Lily's genuity and Lily having a soft spot for the young Miqo'te. Lily does her best to check in on Mynne from time to time, knowing that she is prone to get into mischief but also allowing the miqo'te the freedom to make her own mistakes. Lily and Mynne are as much good friends as they are mentor and pupil.

Family and Friends Acquaintances
  • Kelvothan Nibelung (Father)

    Lily's father hasn't spoken to her since she fled the Wood Wailers. He is a high ranking commander of the Wood Wailers, and her incident resulted in a strained relation between the two. Although Lily loves her father dearly, she is acutely aware of the pain she has caused him and has maintained her distance. The proud Kelvothan finds himself unable to reconcile the dishonor she has brought to him, and their relationship is icy at best.

  • Jeruh Nibelung (Brother)

    Lily's Brother has gone missing for several months. One day, he disappeared from his post in the Shroud, and hasn't been seen since. Lily feels his loss keenly, as they were quite close. She isn't sure to the nature of his disappearance, but knows that she would give up everything she has to get him back if possible.

  • Cecilia Silverhair (Mother)

    Lily's mother died of a mysterious illness when she was young. Cecillia loved her children and family very much and was often thought to be the "glue" that kept the family together. Folks who knew her have said that Lily inherited her gentle nature from her mother, whom was known for her charity and love for her fellow Gridanians.

  • Syl (Pet)

    Syl is Lily's pet bluebird. He is a constant fixture at her side, and Lily loves him dearly.

  • Meiya Maou

    One of Lily's few earlier friends, Meiya Maou is a frequent companion as the two head off on various jobs together. Lily finds Meiya's enthusiasm and love for treasure endearing, though Lily cares little for the riches themselves. Though she isn't around much, Meiya and Lily make a great team and have completed many dangerous jobs together while watching each other's back.

RP Hooks

  • Contracted White Mage

    Lily is often contracted out on various jobs for adventurers with a need for mid-level guild support. She is a competent healer, a pleasant companion if a bit quiet, and more than capable in her own right.

  • Need a Potion?

    Lily is rapidly making a name for herself as a primary provider of alchemy and botany supplies in the Limsa-Lominsan region. Her prices are fair, and her goods are high quality. If you've a need of a potion, you've come to the right place!

  • Child of Gridania

    If you've grown up in Gridania, and are around Lily's age range, you might have vague memories of her as that "weird child" or the "animal girl".

  • Wood Wailer

    Lily's misadventure as a Wood Wailer is commonly known, especially to other members of the fifth. If you were a Wood Wailer in that part of the shroud, you might have even have been a part of the incident.

  • Sketch Artist

    If you're lucky, Lily will take a fancy to you, and you may find yourself the unaware subject of her night's charcoal sketch.

  • Conjurer

    Lily's is a mid-level white mage, and has graduated from the rank of Conjurer. If you are a lower-level conjurer, she might have tutored or aided you at one time. If you are a higher level white mage, you might have tutored her at one point.

  • Out and About

    With the assistance of her closest friends, Lily is taking her first tentative steps into the world outside of her potion shop. You might get lucky and see her sitting at a bar, or eating a meal alone at a restaurant she's never been to before. With the right approach and a little encouragement, you could probably open up a conversation, were you so inclined.

Preferences

RP Preferences:

I'm open to roleplaying with just about everyone - Veteran or novice RPer alike! Walkups are welcome and encouraged. My only three real requests are:

First - That you try to keep OOC and IC interactions separate when possible. I really prefer trying to keep character interactions in-character, and trying to differentiate when I'm talking to your character and *you* is difficult when someone constantly switches between the two without a warning. So trying to use "(( ))" tags when possible is greatly appreciated! :)

Second - I welcome almost all backstories and roleplays. If you'd like to do some sort of life-changing collaboration storyline involving Lily, please clear it with me first so I can think about the story a bit ahead of time and make it an awesome experience for both of us! That being said, I almost never turn down playing a role in your character's development.

Third - Regarding character relationships, while I am okay with Lily becoming - slowly - involved with somebody romantically, It would need to be something that would be built up upon many roleplaying sessions. I also want to stress that it would be strictly IC and would have it not bleed into the real world. Please respect that I prefer to keep the boundary in-game and will respond negatively if you try to make it go beyond that. Thank you! :)
