A tall and often imposing Elezen, whom is often found lingering about Thanalan. Miette is one of the few remaining children of her House, and the product of a harsh upbringing. Like her siblings, she was surrounded by tutors from a young age, and once her natural abilities began to show, a strict regiment of training, and a firm handed teacher were chosen to craft her into the Bow of her House. Because of this, she lacks much in social graces...and has an acute weakness when it comes to conflict resolution and methods that don't include violence. Miette sees no wrong in such actions, and finds them to be as natural as one would converse or shake hands.
The path her life had taken has left her somewhat aimless. Freed to the world beyond her home's gates, and strongly advised not to return, Miette finds herself utterly lost. Past trauma has left her mind a mixed bag. At times she can be utterly pleasant, helpful..and even kind. And yet in the same instance she may run off on tangents of believing herself to be the Fury made Flesh...claiming to be the embodiment of Halone herself. On those later moments, it is not uncommon to see her quickly drawn into combat, often for reasons that are not worth the level of reaction.
She has been lost for perhaps too long, as she struggles to maintain her demeanor and not crack from all that remains within that head of hers. She has great potential to go in nearly any direction, provided the right person steps in to take her hand and guide her along the path they see her best upon. She throws herself to those with such imposing wills, in the hopes she can salvage some scrap of meaning in a second chance of life she'd been given. Though she has no idea how to go about finding such a soul, and instead gravitates more towards those who would lead her down a darker path.
Despite her frequency for combat and violence, Miette actually takes her appearance incredibly seriously. Outfits are often custom tailored, and color selections are made with the upmost care, often ensuring a degree of flair that makes her previous social standing quite evident. That said, she tends to shy away from the formal dresses and gowns of her home, and instead prefers a more masculine/uniformed attire. Long slacks with button down shirts, wide brimmed plumed hats, and a variety of masks or hoods tend to be preference. With the exception of vibrant feathers to her hats, Miette generally covers herself in darker tones, and likes to maintain an image to instill a degree of intimidation and fear in those she interacts with. It can always be assumed that each piece of her outfit was chosen with care and purpose.
Physically, Miette takes extremely good care of her skin and hair. Much prep time is taken to ensure hair is neatly trimmed, and nails are well kept and painted. Lipstick is applied, and her face paint is redone several times a day as the need arises. She is a particularly vain woman, and tends to take any kind of cut or scratch very seriously. Often times her rage is heralded by an attack that could leave a mark….and in those instances she is quick to find a healer who can patch her up before any permanent mark is left. That said, she does bare two very large scars on either side of her stomach, gained from nearly being gutted at the Grindstone, and a few smaller scars left behind from a Miqo’te she’d grown up close to.
Despite the focus on appearance, Miette maintains a toned and sleek figure. The strict regime of exercise from her training days remains ever present in her daily routine. Behind closed doors she tends to be far less modest, and its not uncommon to find her lounging in the remains of her bedding, and enjoying tea. All in all, her eccentricity is often quite on display in how she dresses, carries herself, and behaves.
Miette often has a distant look in her pale blue eyes. During conversation she often appears to be looking past the person before her, and most things she experiences are heavily laced with memories she still keeps replaying in her mind. In most regular encounters she will retain her haughty noble status, and mostly be more intent on finding drink and tea, while looking for curious individuals. In these instances she is more harmless, and prone to even be a fairly playful if the mood arises.
When tensions rise, or open aggression is displayed, an entirely brighter light takes hold of those eyes. She eagerly places herself in harms way, and will champion a cause of Vengeance and Fury if given the request to do so. She enjoys displaying dominance in combat, especially when the opponent underestimates her abilities. Though when a fight drags on, she can become more and more engrossed in the act..and will be far harder to talk down from claiming her prey. She often doesn't know the difference between a spar and a fight for her life, and will take any sign of escalation as permission to push harder, and will openly throw herself into the chance to fight someone she deems interesting or unique.
She struggles to maintain friendships, and often feels like she waits in judgement once she gets close to others. To that end Miette will often move to extremes to prove herself either way if she deems it needed.
