Basic Information
General Information
This is annoying. I am annoyed.
Olixandre Blaque (Pronunciation: ah-lix-ahn-drih black-), was born Olixandre Philyx Yfedra Noxima Blaque to a hermit of a witch and a bastard of a sailor under a stormy Umbral moon. A brilliant woman for her age and beyond, she tends to come off as aloof and distracted on her best days. She is a woman who grew up entirely too fast, however well she hides the scars of her heavy and complicated history. She is always, always, in the company of a small silver-gray rat whose fur has a shine that almost looks magical in the right light. There is an intelligence behind its eyes that are also strangely similar to Olixandre's. It is impeccably nosy and nearly as cute, if not a bit off putting with its too-long tail, flopping ears, and sharp eyes.

Try as she might to hide it by standing with her shoulders back and chin up when speaking to nearly anyone over half a head taller than her, Olix is quite short. Her body is slightly curvier and wider-set than most midlander women—a highland trait. What curves she does have are often masked by roomy fabrics and thick leathers. Olix has the typical La Noscan accent, thick with sea and wanderlust, but it isn't harsh or brash like most of her fellow Limsans. It is a warm alto; not exactly soft, but her voice does have a friendly quality to it. It cracks when she is excited and angered both. An accomplished alchemist (at least according to the streets, as she is very much unlicensed), she carries the sent of herbs and fresh air. Olix’s curly, chestnut-brown hair grows rapidly but is cut to linger just below her jawline. It is a decision based on functionality, not aesthetics, although her short hair does help her appear less like a little girl. She has her mother's eyes--a strikingly bright and cool gray with flecks of silver that, set against the warm complexion of her skin, are perhaps the most noticeable of her features.

Olix comes off as distant and blunt upon first impression. She is easily distracted but easily entertained. Her aloofness could be blamed in part by her sheltered upbringing. She is slow to pick up on the nuances of social queues, and she has a habit of pointing out what may be obvious to most. "You are angry," she'd observe if the person she accidentally managed to frustrate provided a subtle tell of their frustration, like a heavy sigh or a slight eye roll. --an obvious queue to most, but not Oli. The combination of her social naivete and her appearance would make her come off as innocent and dewy, but she consciously goes to extensive lengths to prevent that impression. She suffers from a rather intense inferiority complex, making her defensive and competitive. Her temper is short, but she rarely (if ever) resorts to violence.

Her size and mild case of naivete have nothing to do with her skill as a combatant. While she is very much green compared to the mercenaries and footsoldiers of the cities, she is relatively talented for one her age. Having grown up in the shadow of one of the areas most well known witches, magic and alchemy is second nature to her. While the teachings of her father and, later, her uncle helped her learn her way around knives and daggers, she is far from proficient in melee combat. Because of that training, however, she is most comfortable casting with her hands. She focuses her aether into hand-pieces of her own haphazard invention, allowing her to cast quickly and naturally. She has relatively good aim and is quick on her feet, able to think well under pressure.

A stranger to the idea of long-term and meaningful relationships, she is wary of those who are overly kind and tends to walk into friendships with the preconception that they are marked with an expiration date. That does not make her any less friendly. Olix, when given the opportunity to be, is a fierce and unyielding friend. The wall built on her insecurities crumbles to reveal a nosy little nerd of a witch whose curiosity often gets the better of her, landing her in situations that she somehow always manages to weasel out of.

Non-Combat Abilities
Healing: As Olix has yet to learn how to properly channel magic in the way of proper conjury or arcanima, she heals using her own aetheric pool. As this is obviously dangerous, she tends to only heal during emergencies and when she has a few vials of Ether on hand.
Quick-thinking: Olix thinks extraordinarily well under pressure. With the proper training, she could make a brilliant strategist in time.
Alchemy and Botany: The two, for Olix, go hand in hand. She knows enough about plants to gather them for recipes.
Combat Abilities
Novice Status: Olix is still very new at combat magic (thaumaturgey) but, because of her determination near-constant practice, has progressed at a remarkable rate.
OOC Note
Olix is a witch. While there is no set collection of witch-lore in ffxiv, there are hints towards their existence in the world (Witch Drop on Coerthas and the hags in the archer storyline are a few examples of many I've found). My interpretation of what a witch is in the game-world is a practitioner of magic that does not necessarily fit into one "school" or "guild" for one reason or another. Maybe they practice older, ancient magics. Maybe they just don't like to be limited! Regardless, I am careful not to step on toes and am sure to keep Olix's abilities reasonable for her age, stage of development, and role in the world.

In The Beginning

Olixandre was born on a ship in the middle of a La Noscan hurricane. The product of an unconventional love affair between seaside witch Alessandre and rogue “sailor of opportunity” Oliver Blaque, Olix was born into a tiny makeshift family that was doomed from the start. All was well for the first few years, never mind her having been kept to her mother’s tiny hut on the outskirts of La Nosca. Eventually, the sea called Oliver away, thus ending the temporary union of Olix’s unlikely parents. Olix would know little besides those stormy shores for years to come.
Alessandre was a legend among sailors and merchants alike--elusive and alluring, terrifying and fascinating, but to Olixandre she was just a mother who had no idea how to mother alone. Overprotective despite her emotional distance, Alessandre forbade Olix from the more populated areas of La Nosca. She rarely allowed Olix to see her father when he was in town, and when she did the visits were restricted to the swamps and country. Where Alessandre was cold, Oliver was warm--a decent father for what he was, knowing his choices prevented him from being there for Olix in the way he wanted to. Olix's life would fall into a pattern of shadowing her mother for weeks on end save for the one weekend a month Oliver docked in Lominsa until somewhere around her thirteenth year, when Oliver's visits stopped.
Whatever happened between Oliver's absence and the present, Olixandre doesn't explain. Condemned to a life of solitude and unanswered questions, Olix came of age paying careful attention to her mother's practices. She learned how to summon and how to cast easily, taking to practicing in her matchbox of a bedroom. Nymbus, her small rat summon, was born somewhere in those years--a creature she had to constantly hide from her mother's attention. To this day, the two are inseparable.
Alessandre, much like Olix's father, vanished without a word some few years ago. She spent her most recent years in the company of her paternal uncle--a retired sailor who ran a pub just outside of Limsa Lominsa. While life with William Blaque was comfortable enough as he is possibly the healthiest and most consistent of her relationships, Olixandre eventually found herself saving her gil in order to go out and find her flighty mother. So one day, with only a note on the kitchen table, Olixandre managed enough for an airship to Ul'Dah. This is where her real story begins.

Hidden Feelings/Unknown: Olix does not know how to feel about this character.
Wyliam Blaque ( ) Uncle. Deceased.

Oliver Blaque ( ) Father. Alive.

Alessandre ( ) Mother. Missing.

Jin Khouroshi ( ) The Pup. Olix and Jin's relationship began as most of Olix's relationships do--as a direct result of her stubbornness. Charged with the arguably unnecessary duty of protecting her from the harm Kyran's history may have brought on his friends, Jin eventually wormed his way onto Olix's list of potentially friendly company.
Osric Rook ( ) The fiend. Olix's distaste for this young warrior is plain. She tolerates his company as they share a guild, but to her, Osric is little more than a perverted adrenaline junkie with a penchant for violence.
Siegfreida Falkenrath ( ) The Shot. Siegfreida's and Olix's friendship is a strange one, as on the surface, the two women couldn't be any less alike. Olix has a growing respect for the cool and bold Ala Migahn engineer.
Former Acquaintances
Redde Wine ( ) A pirate's son. Despite their near-constant quarrels, insults, and close-calls with violence, the two seem to have more than a fair amount of chemistry. Olix still considers him her first and closest friend. Unfortunately, a few daysafter Redde confessed his (unrequited?) love to her, the boy vanished from the face of Eorzea.
Stroud Forscythe ( ) Giant blue man. Stroud is strange and often the subject of ridicule by the hands of her Wayfarer friends, but Olix thinks him a misunderstood and weirdly-entertaining giant.
Kyran Belmont ( ) One big hyur. He seems a friendly bodyguard of Wayfarer's Rest and has earned Olix's respect by defending Nymbus. Their relationship has recently evolved to resemble that of an older brother and younger sister.
O'sena Rhen ( ) One Tough Catte. The newly appointed company head of Wayfarer's Rest, Olix was initially (and still is) intimidated by the stoic Miqo'ten women. She has recently learned, however, that the two have more in common than Olix assumed.
Aulsoix Claimane ( ) The professor. As his eager and stubborn student, Olix greatly admires Aulsoix skill and attitude.
Celia Trestia ( ) A Kindly Miqo. Celia's generosity was at first met with Olix's traditional skepticism. Now, Olix regards the woman as a friendly ear. While she may not admit it aloud, Olix also considers Celia a role-model. The relationship between Celia and Olix is akin to that of an aunt and her niece.
Soren Iyasu ( ) The Puzzle Man. He is strange, but friendly. Olix feels comfortable in his company and envies his sociability.
Kamilah Nejem ( ) The little auri. What began as a refreshing friendship dissolved into a strange and borderline-cold relationship fueled by each other's unspoken desire to help the other in times of need.
Ryuichi Shizumi ( ) A madman. Their initial meeting was one part chance and three parts Nymbus' nose for sweets. Despite her initial impression, Ryuichi has proven to be 'not so intolerable.' The two grew to become good friends.
Tirion Trobane ( ) The beast. Olix's and Tirion's relationship is another one borne of necessity. The only reason they have yet to slit each other's throats is for their mutual care for Kamilah Nejem. While his aggression towards Olix has died down considerably, she still watches him with a wary eye.
Wyliam Blaque ( ) Old Crow. This retired pirate captain raised Olix from a child in his La Noscan tavern after she was abandoned by her mother. Olix doesn't go into detail regarding the nature of her uncle's untimely death, but rumors of his murder have found their way into the pirating world.

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 Action and adventure, long plots, short plots, humor, drama, mystery, mild blood and gore re: action and adventure, friendships, instanced PvE rp, world PvE rp, friendships, romance, rivalries
Ask about Private lore-bendy rp, actions that would cause significant psychological or physical damage
I won't play Rape, abuse, lore-breaking rp, exclusively erp-focused rp, insta-romance
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 almost always looking for RP, unless I'm actively spamming PvE content.

Player Note
Olixandre is a very new character. This wiki will be a near-constant WIP! 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.
