General Information
N'vael is severe-looking female Miqo'te that radiates an aura of indifference. Encounters with her will often be short and unpleasant. She has very little time for anyone imposing their presence on her, and even close friends have a hard time establishing if they are, in fact, friends. N'vael speaks rarely, mostly when prompted, and it's easy to feel like you're unwanted in her company. She's a woman of quiet intelligence and understated looks, and this nonchalance effectively veils a talented combatant and savvy financeer. Few will get to know N'vael, and even fewer will ever consider themselves worthy of her time.

Sixth Astral Era
N'vael's early life always seemed unfulfilling. It was a typical upbringing in Gridania, uneventful and peaceful. Most of the time it seemed her time was spent exploring and tending the forests and nurseries of the surrounding Shroud, a passtime that quickly became more of a labour than a passion, to the point that the mere sight of foliage made her nearly sick. Even young as she was, she yearned for something better than a life of stationary gardening, but few travel options and a necessity to continue keeping her duty to the Shroud prevented her from finding anything more suiting to her tastes.

Not much is known about this period, other than that it is most likely where her lackadaisical outlook on the world came from. If the world wouldn't inspire her, it was simply not her role to be inspired.

Seventh Umbral Era
During her formative years N'vael would, as was her wont, wander through Gridanaia looking for things to spark an interest in her, to break the monotony of her existence.

Upon passing by the Lancers Guild for the umpteenth time, something about the way the new recruits were drilling with practice spears caught her eye that day. For once, a glimmer of interest sparked within her, and she continued to watch them, day after day for many weeks, until she had seen enough to walk into the guild and enlist.

In Recent Times
Moving Forward
The years passed by predictably, with N'vael falling into the routine of training with the spear and endless practice drills slowly eroding what little interest she had in the art, eventually ending up as a bored but capable sentry at Dunstan's Spire, situated in the central portion of the Shroud; a safe, dull post usually reserved for the cowardly or for punishing headstrong recruits. Her days were spent idly staring out over the forest, disinterested in all that lay before her. Wailer patrols, travelers passing through the forest on their way to and from Gridania and botanists tending to the groves and farms forming a procession of drudgery that never seemed to end.

Till one day, she was sent on a routine patrol to Haukke Manor, and an encounter with a mysterious horned woman sent her placid life tumbling....

Relationship Status Legend


Sil'tel Ferima - Annoyingly Friendly
N'vael views Sil'tel as a necessary inconvenience due to the circumstances of their meeting and as a result, sometimes ignores or outright endangers Sil'tel with her indifference.
However, thanks to Ferima's pushing and poking of N'vael's boundaries (and coinpurse), she has seen more of the world than she ever expected, and for that, despite never vocalizing it, she is grateful.

Teriha Shiouji - Irrelevant Receptionist
N'vael has no real interest or care in Teriha, other than that she can sit in a chair and do it cheaply, without asking too many questions.
As long as Shiouji can look pretty and feel legitimate, N'vael can tolerate her naïve presence.

Former Acquaintances

NPC Rumors

Some of these rumors are untrue, speculation, or are greatly exaggerated.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard. Use these freely!
"That Miqo'te purchased a license to operate a trade company a few moons back, hopefully she does well!" — Hingan Estate Manager.
"Apparently she used to be a Wood Wailer, but she left, or was kicked out? I can't recall..." — Gossiping Gentleman.
"That one? Seen her out wandering the wilds several times, always seems to find deserted places to just sit and take it all in. " — Avid Explorer.
◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!
"Ah, I knew 'er when she was a wee lass, always moping about silently like a spirit, never spoke to anyone. " — Overfriendly Elder.
"I enquired as to a potentially lucrative partnership via messenger, but when they returned I was informed it took my servant almost a full bell of hammering on the door to get a response, and a disinterested one at that! Needless to say, they won't receive my business again. " — Wealthy Merchant.
◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely overheard. Please ask before using!
"I've heard tell that the reason she left the Wailers is because she was the only one to come back alive from a patrol gone bad." — Wondering Widow.
"She won't return my missives, I'm worried sick about her. If you see my little N'vael, please, tell her to come home, it doesn't matter what happened back then. I just want her home and safe." — Muddled Mother.
PC Rumors

Feel free to add your own rumors to this section.

◢ Player Character Rumors - Some of these are more rare than others!
"An odd one, that girl. Took her orders letter-wise and didn't kick up a fuss about uninspiring detail work. Superb Lancer, if I recall. All the same, never saw her smile or socialize. I suppose she just flew under my scan most of the time. Not sure what she's doing now." — Wood Wailer Captain.
"Aw, Vae's a true friend! Y' gotta dig REAL deep t' find it, though. Real deep, like... 'drill down an' y' might find gold' kinda deep. Ah ain't even sure if ah've dug that deep yet, but she's nice enough t' let me hang around 'er." — Anonymous Xaela with Succubus Horns.

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 .

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 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.
