Appearance & Personality

With a strong back and broad shoulders, it's no surprise that Piers grew up on farming. The lean muscle packed onto his gymnastic frame makes it readily apparent that Piers' build is just as much the product of his own determinations as his labor intensive upbringing.
Often being described as a "floof", Piers' dark blond hair perpetually looks like he intends to get it cut the next day (though he never does). Mossy green eyes and a warm smile can be easily found whenever his hair hasn't fallen across his face.
While Piers carries himself confidently, the near constant look of curiosity and wonder betrays the fact that many experiences outside of the Twelveswood are still new to him. Easygoing and compassionate, he's always quick to share a warm smile with friends and strangers alike. Some people have unfortunately come to misunderstand Piers' positive outlook and emotional honesty as simple-mindedness.

  The Sledge ( ) - The 'Mhigan Mongoose
Piers had an unfortunate encounter with this physically imposing Highlander during his first visit to Ul'dah. One thing leading to another, Piers found himself backed against a cliff by an Amalj'aa. Nearly a year later, The Sledge seems to have plans to turn Piers into a Coliseum contender.


  Cailleagh Hayward ( )
Piers' younger sister. In the years leading up to the loss of their home she worked alongside her brother, looking after livestock and helping with the harvest. After moving their family into the city proper, she began working at a nearby tavern to help pay living expenses. Cailleagh has only recently begun speaking to her brother again.
  J'lyneth Khal ( )
Being both Piers' best friend and the other half of what's arguably the worst adventuring duo that Eorzea's ever seen, J'lyneth Khal holds more of Piers' trust and affection than anyone else in the world. A mixture of time and current events has cooled the romantic facet of their relationship, but Piers has a million other ways to love her besides.
  Isuke Ejinn ( )
Just barely reaching Piers' chest in height, Isuke is an Auri woman who Piers used to harbor romantic feelings for. Still as good of a friend to him as ever, Piers will never stop appreciating Isuke's quiet sincerity.
  D'ranmaia Shenn ( )
Piers has a great respect for D'ranmaia as the proprietress of the Rendezvous Host Club. While it's taken a while for Piers to get to know her, it became quickly apparent that the two are kindred spirits. If you ever find yourself caught up in one of their conversations, it'd be best to brace yourself for a whirlwind of colloquial rambling.
  Batu Qalli ( )
The woman behind the Rendezvous Idol Project; Batu is a grouchy Xaela who (luckily) has a soft spot for Piers. Impressed by his natural dancing ability, Batu has appointed herself as Piers' vocal coach with the hopes of turning him into one of the key players in her side project. Despite her crotchety nature Piers still counts Batu among his friends - as evidenced by his willingness to aid her in personal matters far beyond the doors of Rendezvous.
