Machinist: The youngest Steele brother has always hated and admired the Garlean Empire and their magitek monstrosities while fighting them in the streets of a homeland under siege. After acquiring his first hand cannon, Liam cooperated with the local militia to fight back and end the Garlemald occupation, to little avail. After losing his weapon. all of his friends and fellow freedom fighters in a botched mission, his brothers stole Liam away to lower Eorzea. Even having lost everything, Liam still obsessed over magitek, often claiming that if it were in the hands of the Eorzean Alliance, no one would be able to conquer the realm ever again. Working alongside a garlean defector, Jyrrus, Liam has gathered enough magitek to attempt to create a dreadnought cannon to rain fire from an airship. His obsession led him to even capture a magitek armour, Electroheart, and seize nearly enough parts to create his own pistol. Until all the parts are found, Liam can also rely on his bow and arrow, a skill taught to him by his father back in Ala Mhigo. Liam is best suited in the back of fights but will not show fear if he accidentally winds up in the vanguard. The secret truth is Liam's fear of death, and ranged fighting is the best way to fight for his countrymen and keep the reaper at bay.
- ■ Leofric Steele - father
- ■ Marie Steele - mother
- ■ Landon Steele and Leif Steele - older twin brothers
Being born from a Highlander father and a Midlander mother, it would seem like all the Steele kids would take on more of their mothers features physically. However, their battle prowess from Disciples of War would be undeniably present within all three kids thanks to their father and the training that they had put all of them through. This was done so that the children would be able to protect themselves against the overtaking Garlean Empire when the situation warrants for it.
Their father Leofric is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to Disciples of War. He is proficient in wielding the sword and shield, lances, axes, bow and arrow, daggers, and even bare fists as he is also proficient in close quarter combat. As the Steele kids were growing up, Landon was taught the sword and shield, Leif was taught how to use daggers, and Liam was taught archery. Leofric was a strict teacher to the arts he was teaching the kids in order to ensure that they could survive on their own should they have to fight The Empire.
Their mother Marie, however, is a skilled arcanist and healer. Secretly, she was also teaching the healing arts to Landon since, at the time she subliminally introduced it to her children, he seemed to have been the only one who showed any proficiency at it. At first, their father was kept out of the loop from this and he was upset that he didn't know. He would warm up to the idea later on, however, agreeing that there should be at least one of them who knew how to mend and heal wounds.
•Liam boasts a mild athletic build and fair features make up his youthful face. A Jagged tattoo remains on his right cheek as a memento from his guerilla fighting days in Ala Mhigo as apart of the nameless rebellion. His light blond hair and blue eyes complete the rest of his face. Liam does have a case of Heterochromia where one eye is slightly lighter than the other, yet because Liam keeps his hair long, his bangs cover this fact. The youngest Steele is shorter in height than his older twin brothers, something he has resented since childhood. Most of his genes he apparently inherited from his mother instead of his father. More than a few times have strangers thought Liam was a girl at first glance. Mentioning this is dialogue will earn a -10 approval rating from Liam, no matter his relationship with the player.
•People who are introduced to or meet Liam for the first time will first off notice that the man lacks social graces. Often coming across as blunt, rude, and sometimes offensive, especially to non-hyurs, Liam does and says what he wants to anyone regardless of stature. Pugnacious by nature and the first to audibly scoff at something he finds distasteful, the Ala Mhigan is also well acquainted with sudden tavern and street brawls which he either instigated or found himself in the middle of after saying the wrong thing to another. Liam finds that life is best lived at arms length from people anyway. Acquaintances are only strangers who now have an easier time to stab one in the back and friends will only cause you grief and sorrow when they leave you. This belief was brought to life after Liam lost all of his friends of the nameless rebellion back home.
While he did eventually open himself up after coming to Eorzea and meeting a special person with beautiful green eyes, the youngest Steel closed himself up again after his special friend vanished; with Liam thinking him killed. Even though his green-eyed lover eventually reappeared, Liam refuses to allow himself to get close to another person and sabotages his own relationship with friends and family alike to maintain his solitary life.
•Born William Steele, Liam was once a cheerful, albeit, wild boy who grew up with his brothers and parents in Garlemald-occupied Ala Mhigo. Playing the part of the annoying little brother who knocked his brother's blocks across the floor and blamed it on someone else, Liam enjoyed a brief and happy childhood, considering the state of the city. His mother Maria once recounted that it was the occupation that made her son so cold, but in her wisdom, she understood why Liam acted as he did.
Liam refuses to go into detail over how he met Dagon and the nameless rebellion. After the youngest Steele pushed away the teachings of his father, whom he deliberately antagonized, Liam took it upon himself to be around Dagon as much as he could. Liam believed that this man and his nameless rebellion would free Ala Mhigo from the Garlean invaders. At first, Dagon would only allow Liam to watch and observe the brawls that the group had with the imperial soldiers because of Liam's young age. As the boy grew older and began to fight himself, Dagon allowed Liam to "officially" join the fighters. Liam learned how to fight with both his fists and small knives, but his style of fighting changed forever after he obtained a working magitek pistol from the corpse of a soldier. At first, the firearm was too heavy to aim from afar, and Liam attached a thin bayonet on the end of the gun barrel which he would stab into a soldier's armour before firing. His ability to move lightly on his feet proved effective and his swiftness in the middle of combat gave him the ability to obtain a kill shot with only a single bullet for each opponent.
Everything changed however, when the group was ambushed in a warehouse by Garlean soldiers. Confusion and panic amidst gunfire and screaming made quick work of the nameless rebellion. Liam was only pulled away at the last moment by his brothers, Leif and Landon who had bags packed. Taking advantage of the chaos with a kicking and screaming Liam in tow, the brothers escaped Ala Mhigo and made for southern Eorzea.
Since then, Liam has had a cold look at the world, being wary of who he talks to and often wondering of their hidden agenda when they offer him kindness. There was one person Liam met who made him feel happy for the first time if a long time... but after thinking them dead for a moon, he has kept to himself and his small workshop in Ul'dah filled with scavenged magitek.
