Appearance & Personality


S'khai was raised within a tiny sept located in the canyons of Thanalan just south of the Sea of Spires. As a child, S'khai was forbidden from helping his mothers hunt, and was instead delegated the tasks inherent in raising his sisters and caring for the tribe. Quickly learning a vast number of skills from traveling merchants and caravans, S'khai took quickly to the lot afforded him by his father, though sought constantly to learn to fight, hunt, and provide in what he felt was a more 'direct' manner.

Sea of Spires Sept
The Sea of Spires Sept is, or rather was, an incredibly miniscule, primarily matriachial sept of the Zu Tribe (nominally) led by S'raha Nunh. Composed of a single nunh, three female warriors, and their children, the Sea of Spires Sept was, on the whole, unknown to most other Seeker of the Sun tribes and septs. Numbering nine in total, and living an almost nomadic lifestyle, the group existed almost entirely off of the radar which suited the nunh, S'raha, just fine.
The Sept began after S'raha Nunh, then Tia, left the Zu Tribe after accusations of aiding an Amalj'aa raiding troupe that decimated the sept's population. After an argument ensued with the Zu Tribe nunh, S'raha was chased from the tribe and branded a traitor, never to return.
S'raha spent the next five years wandering Thanalan as a nomad trading, stealing, and hunting what he could to survive. Over the course of those five years two young women, (T')Wabati Jirho and (R')Nhapla Hyun, also outcasts from their respective tribes, joined S'raha in his vagrancy, with the three eventually settling in the area just south of the Sea of Spires.
S'raha soon became complacent about his position as leader, and began to allow hunting duties to slide onto the shoulders of the two women while he took on the role of caretaker for his now three children. While S'wabati and S'nhapla began to take control of most larger duties and decisions, they allowed S'raha to keep his title as nunh, having more-or-less stripped him of all other nunh obligations beyond breeding.
S'khai was the first child, and only son, of S'raha, born to S'wabati shortly after their arrival in the Sea of Spires. While the two women took duties of hunting, S'khai was raised by his father. By the age of five, S'khai had learned basic survival skills, and by eight was caring for his sisters, now two and one. As S'raha fell into a melancholic state of depression, S'khai took on parental duties including cooking, cleaning, mending clothes and caring for injuries. By the age of ten, S'raha had removed himself almost entirely from his role as parent, and S'khai, instead, held the burden with a distinct sense of pride, taking great elation at each of his sister's achievements, and swallowing bitter jealousy as his father forbade him from hunting with his mothers.
Along with his duties of keeping camp and foraging, S'khai learned quickly the ways of trade, convening with each passing merchant, and trading what pelts and woven fabrics he could spare for books, buttons, and various goods, as well as lessons in reading. As a child, he took instantly to the art, burying his craving for adventure between the pages. It was here, as well, that he learned both sleight of hand and Amaljic, seeking to further his abilities to provide for his tribe through trickery or simply expanded trade.

"He has a thing for coeurl-print. How do I know? <giggle>" - Anonymous Barwench
◢ Rare Rumors (Very difficult or rarely overheard)

◢ PC Rumors (Rumors from the characters of other players)
"Khai? Well he doesn't pay his tab, can't hold his drink, tries way too damn hard...but he's alright. Do me a favor and if ya run into the lil' guy, tell him Arch will help get him to round thirteen sooner or later!" Archemides Fontaine
"That mangy stray owes me more gil than he hopes to achieve, and I will get it." Flynt Reddard
"Light on his feet. But he doesn't seem very ambitious. I want to tie him down and make him bleed... Tell him so if you catch him before I do." Teld're Eska'aldren


Romantic Interest     Platonic Love      Good Standing     Poor Standing
Cilia Frostwyght : "That crazy bitch nailed me in the junk and then kissed' me! After, might I add, nearly throwing me over a railing at the Ul'dahn ball. I don't know what the hell she wants, but if it's me, I'm not interested."
Archemides Fontaine : "Arch? Probably the best friend I have right now. Plus, he keeps paying for my drinks before I can so much as get out coin, so I really can't complain."
Flynt Reddard : "Shitdick cocksucker."
Alwyn Tia : "I haven't seen the tia in quite a while; I can't particularly say I noticed until you brought it up."
N'ouleh Tia : "Ishgard, you said... yeah, we'll make a mint."
Lacey Orwell : "I don't know what her issue is with me, but she'd better get over it."
Ama'drien Amaro : "Liar. Thief. Scoundrel. Fuck 'im."
Teld're Eska'aldren : "Ratbastard. I don't understand him. He's like twelve different people; some excited kit, some too-mature-for-'is-britches mother, moody, manipulative... If he weren't a friend of Zeean's, I'd probably have nothing to do with him."
Zeean Wraithor : "Zeean? Bumbling idiot - don't tell him I said that. Love 'im to pieces, but I'll be damned if I don't hate him some days too. Likes to meddle; try an' make shit right. Don't always go 'bout it th'right way though..."
