General Information
A high class host for the Auspicious Fish, he is the prima donna of the Siren’s Bounty in Shirogane. Myym'sae is here to make money and look good doing it. He was trained from an early age to understand that everything has a price and most often people are just another bargaining chip for the things he wants. Nothing is off limits if you have the gil and enough of a desire to get what you want. Working closely with the bathhouse, he has crafted a personal black book of clientele that regularly seek him out knowing everything from their likes, dislikes, to the skeletons in their closet in order to tailor their experience. Despite his attitude and vapid interests, there is a devil with a deal lurking under the soft blue eyes.

He is expensive, vain, and requires a good deal of upkeep. His ability to bite back will give you whiplash, but that is usually reserved for his underlings when they step out of line. Often not giving a care who gets hurt around him, he is quick to protect what he believes belongs to him; be them things, the people around him, or the very space he occupies in the moment. Poised and proper, to fluster him is a grave insult and will earn you his ire for as long as his attention will allow him to maintain it. However, he does what he can to maintain his etiquette and grace in the public eye.

Hunting the elite can be difficult, but having earned a list of regular clients and referrals, he has no need of pushing for new interests. Should you earn his favor, a few gifts can go a long way to keep him occupied and complacent. Those looking to buy his time should expect to drop a great deal of gil, but he will always treat his paying customers like royalty. His job has many levels of emotional work, but his best is to those who need no judgement and an empathetic ear. So look, don’t touch… And he might see you around.
I can show you everything you think you want, for the right price.

Hair & Fur
Myym’sae takes immaculate care of his hair and fur, making sure that both shine. His long hair can be kept up in unique styles that he often tries to experiment with, or left down as it reaches the small of his back. His tail is long and bushy with the ability to fully wrap around him when he sits. The fur is plush and long, often decorated with ribbon and small bells.
Physique & Markings
A lithe physique earned from years of dancing, he is capable of contorting his body and stretching in ways many others cannot. Not one bit a fighter, his ability to lift heavy objects is strained at fifty ponze. He is clear of markings or any scarring save for a single brand seared into the right side of his face.
Fashion & Attire
Myym’sae wears clothing fit for his clientele, which means that his outfits are rich and elaborate. Jewelry is a must, and oftentimes he wears the gifts given to him by his patrons. Silks and sheer cloth are prefered when on the job, but frills and lace still decorate his day to day outerwear. Never without his bells, small silver or glass bells stay tied to his tail and within his hair usually near his ears. Ribbon is another popular addition to his outfits with the colors changing to his mood.
Psychological Profile
Learning at an early age that things bring more happiness than people, he is extremely materialistic and often places ‘things’ higher on his priority list than even his friends. Fickle, he can be rather narcissistic with his demands as he preens and basks in the compliments. Despite these flaws, he can show empathy towards others on occasion. He will always try to aid other prostitutes when he can, either through a free meal or paying for a place to stay for the night. Despite this generous attitude, he is not typically one to dote on others outside of work.
Myym’sae’s voice is never harsh or loud despite the occasional cutting word. Rarely losing the calm and even tone, his voice is on the higher scaled octave. Capable of an empathetic and gentle croon when soliciting others for affection or work, his normal cadence is even tempered and cold. A siren's voice when singing, he is capable of a wide range from soprano down to tenor, but no lower than that.
Philosophy & Mannerisms
Willing to sell out anyone to get ahead, he believes in serving the self before all others. A man with a goal, despite wearing rich and appearing decadent in his style, he is working towards saving enough money to finally retire from his work. Never willing to be dependent on others, Myym’sae works hard to cultivate a retirement fund that will see him lavished in finery in his sunset years. However, of the things that will never change, etiquette and decorum will always remain the two things on the top of the Keeper’s list of what is important in life.
● Sweets
● The Aesthetic™
● Opulence
● Flattery
● Cute Food
● Expectations
● Loud and rambunctious individuals
● Bullies
● Unappealing smells
● Poor fashion

Myym’sae is the fourth son of a very prolific family lineage. His mother maintained a high place of respect for her many sons, though never reaching quite the status of Matriarch. The village he grew up in was secluded from the rest of the world, situated far to the northern shroud bordering Coerthas. Believing themselves to be the pinnacle of perfection, they used other allied tribes to barter and trade with the city-states and outsiders. Their obedience was further conditioned through fear as members worked to gain the favor of the Matriarch known only as ‘Mother’.

Men within the tribe were branded on the face to make it very clear who they were loyal to and where they called home. They are all trained how to properly host guests and those truly skilled in emotional work were the most prized. Treated like nobility when carrying out their duties proper, theirs was a life in a gilded cage of luxury. The highest among them earned personal favor with the Matriarch and lived in decadence, so long as they pleased her.

Disclaimer: The Tayuun tribe that Myym'sae is connected to were a sept to the north. None of this lore is to be taken as a blanket ideology for all characters baring the name Tayuun.
Sixth Astral Era
Surrounded by the jealousy his mother held for the Matriarch, he grew up intimately knowing treachery and emotional manipulation as tools of the trade. She instilled in him the knowledge of keeping his true emotions from the public eye, and how important perceptions were to prying eyes. Too focused on her older sons, she forgot about her fourth who found his own jealousy in the sons of the Matriarch. Things, gifts given for service, were a currency he learned well and soon used to measured his success. Nurture over nature, he learned how to become ruthless and cruel with a pretty smile and gentle words.

Seventh Umbral Era
Coming into his own within the tribe, he realized his own potential through political manipulation and a bit of emotional work. Rising quickly to the top as the prettiest of the four sons of Myym, he put every bit of effort in gaining favor and adoration to collect more things for his own. His brothers more focused on helping their mother in her growing coup, Myym’sae took it upon himself to expose everything to the Matriarch. Gaining favor and becoming an adopted son, Myym'sae finally rose to the top of what he believed to be a perfect life.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
Sent as envoy of the Matriarch to bring his runaway cousin home, Myym’sae failed in his attempts after living away from the village longer than expected. Coming to enjoy his time outside the gilded cage, he made a deal to work with the Siren’s Bounty to extend his stay indefinitely for his silence to his cousin’s location. Time passed and since then life has settled for Myym’sae as he continues to make his life into whatever he wants.

Relationship Status Legend

Sen'ra Tayuun, Cousin. ( ) - The Phoenix
Character's Thoughts: "A runaway, like myself. He has helped me adapt to life outside the birdcage by offering me a job to work for him, but our truce ends there. He does not trust me, and I'm positive that the first chance he gets to see me gone he will take it."
A beautiful keeper from the same tribe as Myym'sae, and one of the leader's sons. Defiant of their way of life, and the original target of Myym'sae's mission to bring the runaway home, he convinced Myym'sae to leave the Tayuun for good. He was willing to offer Myym'sae a job within the Siren's Bounty.
Sen Tayuun, Tayuun Matriarch. ( ) - Mother
Character's Thoughts: "A woman I have great fear and respect for despite my running away from that life. She is a powerful figure, and one who commanded the masses under her to believe all her lies and demands. Every powerful aspect of myself I can attribute to her training, and everything about myself that I hate."
The absolute leader of the tribe Myym'sae came from, she rules through fear and conditioning. A powerful woman you would never wish to cross, she has cast off Myym'sae as dead to their tribe and marked him as a kill on sight should he ever return.
Myym Tayuun, Mother. ( ) - The Betrayer
Character's Thoughts: "She is dead because of me. I sentenced her to death when I betrayed her trust and exposed her treachery to Mother. I gained status and wealth because of it. I do not weep for her."
A rebellious woman, she wanted more power than her station would allow and in the end it was her downfall. Hubris and ambition were her greatest assets and something she instilled in her son before he promptly betrayed her.
Rysk'a Bajhiri, Lover. ( ) - The Dread Veil
Character's Thoughts: "If death had an avatar, this would be them in flesh and blood. I do not know why I was chosen, but I refuse to lose the interest of such a powerful being. Twice I have tasted death and been denied. If I press for a third, perhaps I will become immortal."
A powerful and deadly mage, they have become the focus of Myym'sae's attraction. There is not much that Myym'sae would not do for his beloved, including death. Always encouraging Myym'sae to follow his more self-serving side, there is a darkness about them that Myym'sae finds irresistible that not even time or space could keep him from them.
Chagatai Ejinn, Best Friend. ( ) - Zhong Lung
Character's Thoughts: "A stoic sort that rarely holds his emotions at the surface. A placid lake with a deep bottom too far to see anything but black. There is something deadly lurking just out of sight, but I do not fear it."
His ability to listen to Myym'sae is comparable to only one other in the keeper's life. Patience to handle the tides of Myym'sae's moods makes his friendship all the more impressive. Stoic in nature, he has shown a fair amount of attention and care to the keeper that Myym'sae is happy to return without the slightest request of payment. A calm pause within the tempest that swirls around the keeper at all hours, Myym'sae is thankful for the serendipity of their meeting and friendship.
Izayoi Shicho, #Squad. ( ) - Yokai Master
Character's Thoughts: "Someone I would be willing to follow into a fight, if only because she would easily win. That is to say nothing of her other skills with both the yokai and lance. She s still timid about controlling her destiny and taking what rightfully belongs to her, but that is an easy fix."
An ex-priestess who left Sato no Sui after tragedy befell her past, she is currently seeking to recover her identity within the lands of Eorzea. Not exactly capable of navigating the nuances of the common language as well as a native speaker, she is not as dim witted as some would like to believe. Quick to pick up on her skills, Myym'sae is making a personal duty out of teaching her to be catty.
Rafael Rizzo, #Squad. ( ) - The Punisher
Character's Thoughts: "He dislikes bullies even more than I, and that is something I can respect. A good friend to keep near when I shop, it is a fun time when someone stupid decides that I would be a good target."
Sassy and observant, he has earned Myym'sae's trust through several unfortunate instances. Never one to comment on the harsh moods that he has found Myym'sae in, he always seems to know how to return the keeper to ground level. A powerful bruiser, he is not one you want to be on the wrong side of the very large spiked bat he carries with him.
Cad'nce Tagger, Siren's Bounty Doctor. ( ) - The Great Fox
Character's Thoughts: "A fire burns behind kind eyes, that see more than others would give her credit. A bomb waiting to go off, I simply need to get the fuse lit. "
Someone who has managed to win over Myym'sae as a friend and mentor, he has taken great care in the relationship to tilt the power structure in his favor. Still, he has a fondness of the woman that he might for a daughter or young prodigy and makes great strides to protect her interests as well as his own. Everything he does, he does with the spirit of a fae teaching their charge the ways of the world, and so not all of his teachings are in good faith.
Latika'a Renaz, Siren's Apothecary.  ( ) - Prima Dona
Character's Thoughts: "He knows his way around the more important parts of living on your own, which is a refreshing change. Though how easily he is bought for food worries me."
Able to navigate the diva better than most, Latika has managed to pick up on Myym'sae's game faster than the others. This has earned him a level of respect that very few gain. Sought after as a fellow to drink wine with on off hours, the pair can laugh and joke about their misadventures while retaining the illusion that they are better than the rabble.
T'Nuka Jihn, A Troubled Teen. ( ) - Spitfire and Brimstone
Character's Thoughts: "She is perfect in every way, and if you disagree you are wrong."
No one really understands it, and Myym'sae probably doesn't have a clue either as to why he lets her get away with as much as he does. The keeper dotes on her constantly, despite her gruff and uncouth mannerisms. He spoils her like a daughter, and for that he usually gets taken advantage of by the seeker woman. However, that isn't to say she wouldn't level an entire town if something should happen to him.
W'amarok Howlingblade, A Bodyguard. ( ) - The Red Wolf
Character's Thoughts: "He is strong and cunning with weaknesses for his friends. I can use this."
A powerful fighter, Myym'sae has taken the time to learn what he could of the assassin while maintaining his own interests separate. While he doesn't have the leverage he would like over the seeker, he continues to watch them from the sidelines should an opportunity arise.
Tefh Ganajai, A Vagrant. ( ) - The Lost
Character's Thoughts: "She is... Unique. I've not meet someone so interested in the finer points of dancing with such a lack of hygiene."
Having caught his eye more than once trying to learn his style of entertainment, Myym'sae is unsure if he would accept her as an apprentice or request she try another form of employment. Curious to say the least, he is watching her for now.
Former Acquaintances
Ke'nehn Roughwing, Ex-Siren. ( ) - The Bounty Hunter
Character's Thoughts: "He never did understand... Despite his absolute confidence that he did."
A passing interest, Ke'nehn was an example of a man who thought he understood Myym'sae when in reality it was all assumptions. A lesson learned, the man has earned the permanent indifference of the keeper.

NPC Rumors

Any of these rumors are subject to being untrue, speculation, or greatly exaggerated from the reality. Though every good lie maintains a speck of truth.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard around the streets if one were asking around. Use these freely!
"He helped me once. Never really asked more than a few basic questions. Said he wanted to see me up on me feet again." — Streetwalker
"A heart of ice when he's not working. Don't expect anything but biting words and temperatures colder than Coerthas." — Street Drunk
"A voice of the heavens, that one. He doesn't sing anymore though, which is a right shame. I think he does private sessions now and again." — Local theater hand
"Prima Dona doesn't even begin to cover it. You want that one dancing in your tavern you might as well be begging the stars. He's got patrons in the Siren's Bounty willing to pay top gil, so don't expect them to give him up." — Theater manager
"He will sell his own mother to get what he wants. Ruthless and uncaring for anyone but himself." — Local loan assistant
◢ Uncommon Rumors - Whispered in the upper class regarding the cerulean harlot. Use sparingly or ask first!
"Their gifts are what give him such a lavish look. You think he bought any of that himself? With what gil?" — High class courtesan
"I heard he doesn't have a home. Can you imagine? He refuses boarding at a brothel to live on the streets. Thinks he's too good for us." — Madam of Ul'dah
"I'm under the impression that he's not looking for more clientele. Shame if it's true, but rarely do these harlots refuse a chance to make more gil." — Snooty Businessman
◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely spoken allowed and never in mixed company. Please ask before using!
"His voice is as enchanting as a siren's. There is magic behind those flowery words, and that kind of power should never be allowed to a harlot." — Snubbed Noble
"I recognized the brand he wears. It's how the women of his tribe tagged their males. He's a runaway... Wonder how much he'd be worth to them brought back alive." — Keeper Woman
PC Rumors

Spoken aloud by his friends and those who have come to know the Keeper on a more personal level.

◢ Comments about the Keeper - If you were asking around, here are a few things you might come across when asking those who know him.
"He seems to have acclimated well to life away from the shroud." — Sen'ra Tayuun
"Myym'sae has friends in high places." — Rysk'a Bajhiri

RP Info

Location & Probability
There are quite a few places that you might cross paths with the Keeper, but depending on the location will dictate his approachability. This can also help with figuring out where you might have seen the man previous, and under what sort of emotional state he might be in.
Shirogane: His new permanent home, he spends the majority of his time here taking care of the onsen owned by the Siren's Bounty. It is easy to catch him working, but to engage beyond the fake exterior you will have to catch him in the markets and streets of Hingashi. Cultural manners and local notoriety means that he rarely acts out in public. This is the safest you will encounter him.
Limsa Lominsa: Business is all that brings him home to the heart of the Siren's Bounty. He returns with gifts for his friends and paperwork for the lead members of the crew. Still occasionally willing to dance for the Call, he will schedule a show every so often to bring in coin and remind the Siren's Bounty why they hired him.
Ul’dah: Clients and shopping are the only things that will bring this ice cat to the deserts. The heat takes a large toll on him, but for the sake of quality goods and gil he will endure. Spotting him on the streets means that he is busy shopping for rare goods to take home with him to Hingashi. This is the time to approach as this is the one activity that keeps him on his best behavior.
Gridania: Secretive and hidden, he is rarely seen within the forested city-state and for good reason. There is long and painful history connected with the shroud and if he is here, then it must be very important and private. Scarcely offering a glance to anyone he considers non-threatening, approaching him here is likely a terrible idea especially with his name on your tongue.
Coerthas: Rich in nobles and old money, he only visits for clientele. High class parties, noble house gatherings, rich dinners, and political party banquets are all he has time for here. Always a pleasure and respectable to a fault, he understands his role here within the more reserved elite. He is the eccentric’s interest, the rare commodity, and the unusual companion which means a lot of odd looks and whispers. Emotional duress is kept hidden as he puts on a show for his clients.
Affiliations between Myym’sae and his clients are strictly private, but there are a few establishments that hold his patronage. Purchased deals or written contracts keep him tied to a number of places within Eorzea and beyond. Most of these aren’t public, and would have to be asked after!
The Siren’s Bounty: Located in Limsa Lominsa, this mercenary guild has a special contract that keeps him on the bank roll in order for him to take care of their Onsen in the Far East.
The Auspicious Fish: A new and upcoming public bath house in Shirogane, the establishment houses many guests linked to the Siren's Bounty and their patrons. Myym'sae spends his time here hiring, training, and grooming those who would work for the establishment.
The Weeping Unicolt: Established outside of the more well known parts of Coerthas, the group hosts a tavern that runs goods through underground markets. A sizable yearly donation finds its way to their coffers from Myym’sae’s reserves.
IC Inventory
The following items are things that this individual carries on their person at all times. These are noted for pickpockets, and those watching him closely. This information is meant to be a prompt for insight, so feel free to use this information if it comes up logically in RP!

Glio coinpurse.png

Silver or glass bells: Tied within his hair and along his tail at length, there are enough on his person to allow someone to hear him approaching.
A intricately designed fan: Either feathers or painted silk, the fan he carries will always match his outfit. Most have bells dangling from ribbons or special good luck charms attached to them.
A Coinpurse: Heavy with gil, he always has several hundred bits on his person at any one time.
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 casual conversations, thievery, heckling, bar scenes, and all manner of flirting.
Ask about combat, abduction, trauma, or grimdark adventures.
I won't play torture, gore, or any grimdark themes for shock value.
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.
A Regular: Often stopping into the Siren's Call, the Drowning Wench, or the Quicksands for a momentary breather from shopping he is a regularly seen pretty face.
Streetwalkers: Myym'sae likes to help any who need a quick jolt back on their feet with paid for rooms and boarding to those left out on the streets.
Jingle Bells: The sound of the Keeper walking would easily turn heads trying to find the source of the soft chimes.
Gifts, Compliments, and Praise: If at any point your character would do any of the above, you can expect instant attention from the man. Granted it would be purchased time, you would be getting your foot in the door.

OOC Notes
Player Information
Player Note
There is a lot of information on this character wiki, but it is by no means completely comprehensive. There are chunks of backstory that are left intentionally vague so that details can be later added as developed through creative writing or in role-play revelation. Feel free to use Common or Uncommon rumors freely, if you want to use a Rare Rumor as a plot hook or to spark RP, I would ask that you send me a tell first, to make certain it's alright.
Character Lore Adherence
Everything concerning this character that has not been confirmed by in-game lore should be taken with a grain of salt. Anything that has had to be changed because of lore shifting will be noted below.
■ No changes.
Character Concept
Myym'sae is a narcissistic, borderline sociopathic individual who puts a lot of energy in how others perceive him. His character is meant to be difficult, but not unapproachable with situations allowing him moments of growth towards a more compassionate and empathetic final form. No one person will have the power to simply shift his personality, and his development is part of the draw to playing such a character in RP. OOC discussion and planning is vital to any long-term RP with this character, as there will be times that his flaws will strain friendships. I did not craft him to be a wrench in the system, and as such he is not here to be ruined by trauma or tragedy. I want him to grow and improve while working with others to craft a dramatic narrative within FFXIV.
