Brief History
Lucius Ignatius is a young pureblood garlean defector. At a young age, he was forced into labor by his father, Decius Ignatius after he had shown promise to being a child prodigy, in regards to building magitek machinery. Lucius' success had made his father rise through the ranks to a Legatus with his weaponry his son built him, and he was appointed to the XVth Legion (custom lore) as a Special Operations Legion, or Frumentarius branch.

Lucius continued to toil away, in nothing but a room that was built just for his work. He never attended school, rarely was let out aside from explaining and demonstrating his creations. At times, they didn't work. Decius then physically and verbally abused him in private venues for making him look like a fool publicly. That had made Lucius question his own allegiance to the Garlean war-machine. When he asked about certain propaganda, he was always shot down and told to obey without question. It didn't stop him from still considering defection.

Eventually, the day came that his father had a mission for him--to the city states as an infiltrator. He had no training, yet he was the young age of eighteen to scarcely be even suspected of such a task. His father forced him into fixing his communicator to be a 'suicide bomb' that could be remotely detonated if he should attempt to defect. Lucius was to rendezvous with another garlean frumentarius legion that operated within the city states, in order to be kept watch on as he completed his mission. Only, the mission was to plant bombs within each city state that could be detonated all at once. Lucius would have eventually been found out as the culprit... and he knew it was a suicidal mission then. Upon learning that, he took desperate measures to jam the communicator, as well as look for help to save himself--making a new family in Eorzea, and many friends along the way.

Not all heroes are dressed in shining armor.
Silvery Blue Platinum Blond Pale White Toned (3:56, Lujon Fullmetal Alchemist/Johnny Yong Bosch)
Dress Style
Fairly well mannered, can be angered, somewhat emotional Right Handed Faded scars along face and eyes, deep scars along body which seem to be from torturous activity None Casual, but can be formal
Hair & Eyes
Lucius' hair is like most of his pureblood garlean heritage, a platinum blonde. He often wears it above shoulder length, or at the least shoulder length, depending on how it is styled. It can be longer and styled differently if he so chose, but it is often well-kept and self-styled. His eyes often have a shade of eyeshadow along the lids, and the eyes are strikingly silvery blue, but with a bit of a lifelessness behind them like most purebloods.
Physique & Markings
Lucius' physique is toned, somewhat lithe. Though he is a bit shorter than most of his kind as a garlean. At his forehead, he has a third eye which rests between skin, like all purebloods which is often covered up. Other than that birthmark, he has no markings of note.
Hygiene & Attire
He is often very well-kept, and carries the scent of cherry blossoms. His attire can range from very formal and extravagant, to a casual adventuring attire. His favorite 'style' of clothing would be doman inspired.
Psychological Profile
Lucius' psychological state is fairly varied. Due to how his treatment was by his father, he has a bit of trauma. He doesn't like enclosed spaces (was locked in a small room to work), and has a strong hatred for slavery of any kind (as he had witnessed it within Garlemald's walls). Recently, he had undergone torture as he was reacquired by his father and subjected to torture, as well as being disciplined to become his father's perfect assassin. This has taken a major toll on his psyche, making him at times erratic and even dangerous if someone should anger him enough. It would certainly be a different cry from his earlier pacifist mindset.
Lucius' voice can be described as soft, and firm at the same time. It has a bit of an adult tone to it.
World Outlook & Mannerisms
Lucius' world outlook of things, are that he wishes that Garlemald and Eorzeans could finally stop fighting each other, and do away with destructive magitek and conquering. Mannerisms are varied.
Machines/Magitek. Even though machines and magitek were something that was forced upon him as a profession at the young age of eight due to being a prodigy--he had built things that even seasoned engineers struggled with when he was given more complex schematics later on in his 'career' as a magitek engineer. At times he despises it, but it is what he is good at.
Cherry Blossom Scent. This scent is something he has grown very fond of, as he enjoys a good many imports from the eastern seas.
Knowledge. Knowledge is power!
Colors: Blue, Purple, Black.
Fine Arts. He loves artwork, fine and extravagant dress, and singing/musical instruments.
Wines. Most wines he enjoys, but overall enjoys sweet wines most. He has a bit of a history of drinking too much, so he stays away from alcoholic beverages most of the time.
Good people. Lucius will often befriend you if you are a good, moral person.
Fine Cuisine. Lucius has taken up cooking, and has an eye for the most savory recipes, especially dodo and fish.

Mindless Destruction/Murder. Lucius will oppose mindless destruction (especially with the use of magitek) and murder of innocent people.
Oppression from Garlemald. Being a Garlean defector, he has vowed to strike back against the Empire's ruthless rule.
Decius, his father. Lucius hates his father more than any living being on the planet. This due to his abuse and what he has done to his Eorzean family and friends.
● Item
● Item
Child Prodigy. Lucius was a child prodigy at a young age, building complex machines and magitek weapons for his father. The more difficult the build was, the more eager he was to do it with success. He is also known to use unorthodox methods in his building.
Prosthetic Magitek Builds/Magitek Builds for Medical Reasons. Upon coming to Eorzea, he had found people in need of serious aid: eyesight, limbs, digits, voiceboxes--all of the above, so he had turned to using magitek for medical needs.
Self-trained in Physical/Ranged Combat. Using his booksmarts, he has built magitek robots that became his personal trainers in various combat techniques, such as hand-to-hand, bladework, and sharpshooting with a pistol. (His main focus would be a blade and gun)
Strategies. He often attempts to lead, and be strategical. It doesn't always go to plan, but he gets this from his father.

OOC Note
I tend to prefer free-form rolling with the In Game /random function. However, if my partner prefers, I am able to accommodate into almost any system. I will always play fairly OOC in combat. Meta/Godmodding is something I am very against. If I feel that I am being godmodded, or meta'd, please expect that I will call it out privately. All of my attacks against another character should be considered attempts, even if not directly stated as so. If you have any questions or concerns while we're RP-fighting, please talk to me!

(Please see 'Details' section!)
Disclaimer: Any information here is to be for OOC knowledge only, unless stated otherwise. Some may be revealed IC, but please find out IC if you want to use it IC. If I feel you a metagaming any information here, I will kindly ask you to redo your post. Thank you!
Sixth Astral Era
Lucius was believed to be a single child, however it is possible that he had other siblings, he just never knew them. His father kept him in a small room, which had the essentials for Garlean living: a bath and washroom, an eating table, a work-desk and bench, and a bed. His father found out about his powerful young mind, when Lucius had put together a complex puzzle one evening, that even his parents couldn't solve. Afterwards, Decius made certain to nurture that mind with various puzzles, builds, etc. Until he moved on to schematics for weaponry, as he approached his late toddler years.

NOTE: If you aren't listed here or have a description on your character, more than likely I just haven't gotten around to adding them.

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.

RP Limits
I like to consider myself a flexible player who is willing to commit to a number of different types of scenes and role-play scenarios, but even I have my limits. If something is on the play list, assume it means yes, as long as it's within the context of the current play or ongoing plot. No's are typically a hard no, and it means don't ask.
I will play: Almost anything! I enjoy darker/mature themes, romances, interesting plots, etc. I consider myself experienced in RP, and adaptable to a lot of things.
Ask about: Permanent disfigurement, imprisonment, maiming, etc. of my character. If you intend to harm a friend of his, and he finds out as well, please know that I expect consequences to be done to the aggressor when applicable.
I won't play: Death of my character (I will allow any kind of consequence besides death), pure ERP (I do RP romance with some tasteful ERP, but I will not continuously RP it if it makes no sense what so ever. It is meant to be a means to build the characters for me, and underage characters in ERP. If there is anything you want to question, please ask me and I can tell you whether or not I am comfortable with it.
What I expect from my RP partners: I expect my RP partners to respect me OOC. That means, first and foremost, DO NOT LIE TO ME OOC. If I find out that you lie to me about something that is going on IC when I ask, or suspect you are lying, that is the quickest way to get on my bad side. I will not accuse you unless I have a reasonable amount of evidence or proof, and you shouldn't be worried about this RPing with me. I also expect my partners to be communicative with me OOC. If you feel uncomfortable with the path that the RP is heading, or if you want to 'stop' an RP outright for whatever reason, PLEASE tell me. If you are wanting to have RP go a certain way (if a character splits up with my character as a romantic partner, or cheats IC for example) PLEASE tell me before the RP has happened if at all possible. Withholding important information OOC from an RP partner is wrong. Communication is key with me.
What You can expect from me as an RP partner: I always try to treat my partners with the respect that I would want shown to me. However, if I feel threatened, disrespected, etc. please do not expect me to treat you respectfully. RP is supposed to be fun and enjoyable for all involved. As soon as it becomes an argument or unfair treatment, I will end things. I am usually very open to communication, open to ideas, and very laid back.
RP Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP. Longer plots that are meant to run for more than a few quick RP's, please feel free to send me a tell so we can work out a good reason for our characters to get to know one another. I'm always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.

Player Information
Player Note
Hi, and welcome to Lucius' profile! Most of the stuff here is automated, and can also be outdated information. If you have any questions at all, or want to get in touch with me, send a PM through the FFXIV Roleplayers forums or poke me in game!
Please use this profile as a means of information for OOC knowledge, and finding out ways to potentially connect with Lucius IC. Most information in this profile is to be used within certain bounds (as in, no metagaming obvious things, or if the profile says explicitly it is OOC knowledge only, use it as such. If it is not found out through IC means, I will give you a poke and ask you where your character heard about it. If you don't have a legit way to know, I will ask you to retract your post kindly, or ignore you which I don't enjoy doing. Thank you!)
Character Lore Adherence
I constantly strive to adhere to established FFXIV lore as closely as I possibly can, within available bounds. At times, I bend things slightly for creative enjoyment, but usually it isn't outside the bounds of believability. If something about my character seems unbelievable or 'off' way too much, please whisper me and we can chat on it. I am always open to compliments, and constructive criticism on my character. Just please don't be rude or snobbish. Just because you believe something should be a certain way, doesn't mean I will change it. I will just hear you out and decide from our discussion. I will bullet some custom lore that I have created for this character.
■ Decius, his father is the Legatus of the frumentarius XVth Legion.
■ Lucius has adapted the technology of magitek into a fighting style that is similar to the traditional doman samurai.
Character Concept
Lucius' concept was brought about from a love of the Garlean lore, and the want to play an undercover defector. In my experience in roleplay, the more difficult roles are the ones I enjoy playing--and I believe I roleplay them fairly well (this can be disputed, of course). The character has a strong foundation, and a means to evolve through interactions with people, friend and foe alike. I really enjoy when people treat him disrespectfully due to his heritage as a garlean pureblood, as I wouldn't play this kind of character trying to avoid consequential roleplay--consequences and risks are what make RP fun for me. (That being said, I do not allow my character to be killed without questioning first. Consequences such as scars, broken limbs, etc. are some consequences I am okay with, but I am very open to discussion on these!)
