M O T I V A T I O N

Qara is Hellsbent on fighting for people she sees as less fortunate. She could not save her tribe, so she fights for groups in need of saving wherever she finds them. Refugees, salves, the poor and the victimized. It's like a noble addiction because no matter how many she saves, it never brings back her beloved tribe, but she can't bring herself to stop until her deeds make it so the Hotgo are never forgotten.


Q U I R K S

Qara is a clear introvert, and despite her near-reckless bravery in danger, she is not bold to speak up in conversations. She can appear quiet, judging or even stoic, but her true feelings and thoughts are often far different from her outward demeanor.

She has a soft accent since the common Eorzean tongue is not her first language, but even in the Azim Steppes, she learned it well enough.

She keeps much of her skill, capabilities and primary job to herself, so during first impressions, many might assume her nothing more than an average civilian. When not expecting a fight, she will be dressed casually, or for the field, but not in armor, and her only weapon might be a concealed Ishgardian mail-breaker dagger. To many, she is just that courier girl. To some, she is a privateer working for the Maelstrom. To those who know her very well, she is a Knight.




Qara's Colors

Different colors of face paint have different meanings for Qara. Once someone gets to know her, they'll begin to see the colors almost like another form of body-language. Qara's family's paint color definitions may be different from other family units that lived in the Hotgo tribe.

Colors
Blue
Qara's spirit color. She wears it when she feels her best, and most confident.
Black
Her rage color. She wears it when preparing to fight, or when she gets angry.
Red
Her love color. Be it platonic or romantic, she'll wear red when her passion grows strong.
Green
Her joy color. Not to be confused with blue, green is applied when she feels innocent happiness.
Yellow
Her sadness color. She doesn't like to show her sadness despite what she was taught, but she'll often wear it to help show sympathy for the suffering of another.
Purple
This color is righteous fury. Her warpaint when on the job.
White
Her diplomatic color. She wears this to make amends, or show that she will remain peaceful.
Pink
Her humility color. She wears it to show when she is embarrassed, or bashful.
Orange
Her fear color. She only really wears it as a display of caution to others. Not all instances of fear will have her painting her face orange.
Silver
Hope and Will. In remembrance of Ucugen Hotgo who tragically died soon after meeting Qara. Silver was Ucugen's spirit color.

Because paint colors change shades due to drying and whether, she does not use different shades of the same colors to represent variations of her general emotions. Instead, she usually marks the strongest emotions she is feeling in a general sense. However, different color combinations can give greater detail to her emotional state, but it is less common for her to use more than one color at a time.

Combination examples
Blue and Purple
Confidence and Fury. The Warriors of Qara's family would wear this combination of colors when in a battle they prepared for. Qara wears the combination in battle often.
Red and Pink
Love and Humility. Often worn in rare instances of public displays of great affection; such as a marriage ceremony.
Red and Purple
..."Greatmother use to say; the best part of a couple's fight is making up..."

The marks of paint Qara makes are simple smudges or lines. Only in ceremonies or special occasions does she make coherent symbols on her face using the paints.

The paints do not replace facial expressions or body language for her. They are used for emotional honesty and clarity as taught by her culture.

  • Zanzan Yanzan: "No one else tries so hard to help me. He was there when I had no one else."
  • Chakha Hotgo: "My sister. I love her... Even if the world doesn't."
  • Khaidu Hotgo: "A survivor from my tribe."
  • Tyo Panipahr: "The world is hard for her. I won't give up on her yet."
  • Rebeccah Price: "Nicest Hyur I ever met. So nice I see most people not trust her. I think she just wants to help the world.]]
  • Liadan Summerfield: "She is like a tree... Uh... Maybe not..."
  • Khunbish Adarkim: (Avagnar)"He is a good man. Member of my crew most of the time. A Shaman from a lost tribe."

I M P O R T A N T   T R I N K E T S

A violet-bladed short-sword made by the Kagon tribe. Either kept on Horsebird or Qara's belt.

A Mythrite Zweihander rewarded to Qara after she delivered a message from Whitebrim Fort to Dragonhead during the Dravanian siege of The Steps of Faith.

A bracelet made of polished bone segmented into four parts. At its center rests a purple, lightning-attuned crystal within a simple gold frame. It is said that the materials of bone and gold made excellent catalysts to help channel one's aether. A starlight gift from Zanzan to Qara to aid her in her magical training. Worn to this day.

A silver chain that is made with an eastern design. The main pendant itself has a gold sun-like frame with blue hues that weaved along its edges like ribbons. Within the frame was an obsidian black backdrop with fragments of Moonstones shaped into small circles as stars. The indentations inside gives the illusion of the stars and the sky moving as one would see it. There is a second hidden feature. Held up to a full moon, the pendant will expose a hidden message for any who can see.

"For Qara Hotgo and Zanzan Yanzan. May their love be as endless as the night sky itself." Crafted by Arala Makeo.

A ring crafted in the Xaela style with Xaela runes that read "Forever loyal Ajaa". It's part of a matching pair. Chakha Hotgo has the other ring that reads "Forever loyal Doyi".

Player-Character Rumors (click here to edit>)

Shria Kagon: "Qara...? She was a dear friend for many years. I always felt I needed to teach her how to lighten up a little, but her focus on the job at hand was one of the things I loved and miss about her."

Zanzan Yanzan: "Qara... She lost everything dear to her. Yet, here she stands. A passionate and undying fire. She is quite beautiful, yes? What captured my heart, however, was her own. There is not another person I love more than her. What a star she is..."
