Raik is a mid-twenties Seeker Miqo'te with black fur/hair with blue highlights. Like most Seekers, and having originated from Thanalan, he has a bit of a tan. He's usually wearing his sunglasses, which were crafted to change how dark they are based on the lighting. Behind these glasses he has blue eyes, which due to a aetherial incident his right eye is a lighter color. He also generally has a yellow choker and earrings of Allagan design. He tends to wear a pair of dark blue fingerless gloves and a matching blue coat, which holds large pockets that he keeps most of his stuff in. He'll also occasionally wear armor if needed, but prefers not to. Due to training with various different guilds, he carries around different weapons or most of the time just goes weaponless.
Currently he is still regaining his memories from before the calamity, but he recalls being in a orphanage when he was young, where they did various types of testing on him, which lets him use some of his special abilities. He also recalls being a mercenary before the calamity and the dark, or evil things he's done, but refuses to tell people about it, chosing to instead act like he doesn't remember.
Likes: The colors Blue, and Black, Food, helping his friends, training and fighting, teasing Aaron Glacier, working for the Pumpkin Cafe,etc.
Dislike: Jerks, Intolerance and racist people, Violence around innocent people, his friends being in harm,
Other: Favorite creature:Wolf(sometimes believes he's part wolf instead of feline like most miqo'tes), Loves trenchcoats.
Raik is naturally stronger then most Miqo'te, being able to fist fight Highlanders and Roegardyn and be evenly matched in strength. He is also slightly faster then normal people, but unlike most Miqo'te, he is quite clumsy.
He is able to use his aether to "charge" his body to in a few different ways:
Speed- Advantages: Raik uses his aether to make himself move faster, causing him to be able to charge enough to outspeed even the fastest of enemies. Weaknesses: The more charging he does, the less overall aether he has until he rests. Using this type also makes him tired a lot faster. Due to his natural clumsiness, he tends to fall/miss. His resilience is also lowered, so he has to rely on dodging.
Strength- Advantages: Raik infuses the muscles in his arms and legs with his aether to bulk them up, adding muscle mass to make himself stronger. Again, depending on how much he charged, he can easily break weapons or shields or armor with a well placed hit. Weaknesses: His natural speed is lowered a bit due to the added muscle mass, and due to this he has to rely on thinking ahead of where to hit.
Raik is able to combine the two forms to a extent, but it tires him out even faster so he tends to not do this.
Lancer/spear fighting- Raik originally trained with the lancer in Gridania after losing his memories, using solely a spear until it broke in a fight. He then resorted to brawling, later deciding to join the Pugilist guild because of that. He has recently obtained a new spear that he's been training with again.
Fist fighting- trained with the Ul'dah Pugilist guild and then later with various other martial arts teachers. He usually prefers more of a brawler style way of fighting. He sometimes uses a pair of blue armored gloves.
Marauder/axe fighting- started training with the Marauder guild in Limsa to build his strength more by using large axes. Due to his previous axe breaking, he currently uses a giant axe made of stone that he infuses with his aether to prevent it from breaking and to further his strength training by making it heavier. he has also obtained another large crystallized axe, which he sometimes dual wields with his rock axe.
Thaumaturgy- While working as a mercenary in Ul'dah, Raik received multiple comments about the abnormally high amount of aether he has, which caused him to go to the Thamaturge and Arcanist guilds to learn how to use their magic. Thamaturgy came as a second nature to him, to the point where he developed various tricks using it, such as heating or cooling off clothes and armor for himself and others. He generally doesn't carry around a staff, but he has a few laying around in his room with his robes.
Swordfighting- After being in Ul'dah for a while, he became interested in the way different swordsmen, including his later friend Aaron, fought. This caused him to train for a long period of time with a sword. His current sword is a relic from one of his jobs. It was a old handle that he had repaired and modified to be able to infuse his aether to create a blade,which he sometimes uses as a two handed sword. He's also shown talent in dual wielding various swords easily.
Archery- recently started learning archery and almost immediately nearly shot himself in the foot.
He is also talented in making, or learning new skills while fighting.

When fighting, or even training Raik is usually alot more serious and quiet. May also sometimes go beserk or lose all reasoning if someone close to him, or innocent gets harmed.
