To judge a book by its cover, the outgoing and lively character that is 'Star' is nothing more than a loud, attention-seeking Miqo'te as crass as she is peppy. Why walk when you can skip? Why stand when you can dance? A mischief-maker and fun-loving young woman who insists that the world is her friend--They just don't know it yet.
Yet the mask that spews out tall-tales and rattles the cages of anyone's quiet, mundane life is a fragile thing barely covering the broken strings of a woman who went through too much, too fast. Those whom come to know her are often exposed to the volatile nature of the woman's fractured psyche but few really know how to handle the sudden, unexpected spurts of emotional instability.
Mika'ial Lynxion ( ♥ ● ) - The Evil Brother
Mika'ial Lynxion : Niko'lai's twin brother who faced a far worse fate that Star and Niko. Raised like the others at the wicked hand of Honoroit Dolet before being passed off to the Garlean Empire as a weapon for their army he did not suffer the fortune of his twin and remained under the corrupt control. He is obsessed with capturing Niko'lai and returning him back to 'Father'.
Honoroit Dolet ( ● ) - Foster Father
Honoroit Dolet : An Elezen Scholar who defected from Gridania over 30 years ago when his research was shunned has found santuary across the Jade Sea. He lives in a Garlean occupied territory and shares the bounty of his research with the Garleans in return for test subjects and the freedom to do as he pleases. His favorite test subjects are young Miqo'te believing that the creatures, like beastkin, are lesser beings and if the forfeit of their lives and well being saves countless others it is an acceptable price to be paid.
Emreg Belthen ( 💔 – ) - Master Hat
Emreg Belthen: Best friends with Ignee for over a year Star was considered the 'crazy woman' that sometimes adorned Ignee's arm but through a complication of drama Star began to get to know Emreg through mild flirtations. The two became increasingly closer and it became very apparent to Star that in spite how the world viewed Emreg as a womanizing asshole she found his blunt candor refreshing and he was always reliable to get her back when she needed a real friend. That friendship blossomed and for once in her life Star found someone who didn't try and change her. Still the haunting memories of Ronin continue to impact her fears that her trust in him will inevitably be betrayed. These fears were eventually realized when Emreg betrayed Star's trust and told her it was her own fault--he'd warned her that he wasn't a very good guy so she only had herself to blame when her heart was smashed into pieces.
Deli De'sara ( ♥ ● ) - The Frienemy
Deli De'sara: Once a secret lover of Ronin's before a hostile Star threatened to bash her head in she did her very best to protect this innocent woman from the wicked and manipulating ways of men. She dated Emreg for a long time though likewise Deli's taste in men had a tendency to run in line with those undeserving of the woman's giving and monogamous nature. Often underestimated Star sees a lot of herself in the other woman and would do anything to protect a girl she desperately wants to be her sister yet life choices and personal selfishness often puts them at odds.
Niko'lai Lynxion ( ♥ ♥ ● ) - Big Brother
Niko'lai Lynxion: In one of her random chance encounters she approached Niko at the market. She teased him, knocking his hat off and flirting and the Miqo'te took mercy on her. He took her on a tour of all of Eorzea and opened Star's eyes to a lot of things. They even dipped a toe into Garlean territory giving her the biggest fright of her life! Through repeated travels the two companions became very close and in sharing their dark past discovered a wonderful truth--that they were actually siblings. A bittersweet reunion the two have continued to form a very close bond.
Yune Tabrisviel ( ♥ ♥ ● ) - Big Sister
Yune Tabrisviel: It's hard to believe this shy, quiet and demure woman could be the older sister to someone like Star but the sheltered scholar grew up adopted by a pair of loving Lalafell parents enjoying a life of relative luxury until she came of age and set off on a quest to find herself and discovered a nutty family she never knew.
Zanin Briggs ( ♥ ♥ ● ) - Brother from Another Mother
Zanin Briggs: Niko'lai considered Zanin a brother and for that reason Star latched on to the mild-mannered Hyur as a surrogate father-figure. He's one of the few people who she will trust and listen to no matter what and much of the goodness fostered in the Keeper is because of his influence.
N'Khai Nunh ( ♥ ♥ ≈ ) - A Friend like Nunh Other
N'Khai Nunh: When others of the Company began to throw around slurs and insults about Nunh stereotypes Star stepped in to defend Khai. Do not judge a book by its cover! Though they have never talked about their individual checkered pasts the two shared an understanding that sometimes you just want to make light of life. Darkness and suffering happens every day so why not be a little silly. The ongoing conflicts between Ronin and Khai have always strained their friendship even to the point that Khai once attempted to murder her mate. Over time Star has come to realize just how precious Khai really is and of all her friends he is the one who remains loyal no matter what. She doesn't always trust him, she believes he'll put the tribe and his personal interests first but that bit of selfishness she can understand. One thing is for certain, if Khai ever needed her she would be there for him.
Raelyse Dan'thion ( ♥ ● ) - Once Loved - Twice Betrayed
Raelyse Dan'thion: A lover of Ronin's when Star met the woman she did her best not to be jealous or violent towards the mild-mannered woman. To Star's surprise she showed a compassion and understanding toward the Keeper no other of Ronin's 'other women' had. She grew to love and trust Raelyse until the woman became pregnant by Ronin and the duo then began to lie and hide their romantic interests from Star. Their relationship was growing behind her back as they spun a web of lies and deceit until one evening Star overheard their private confession. To learn that the two people she trusted most in her life were lying to her was devastating and drove Star to the brink. Over time she began to trust Raelyse again only to learn that after her return she and Ronin had begun their affair again. Raelyse confessed the truth to Star and shortly after Ronin threw Raelyse off a cliff. Star cannot fully let go of her love for the first woman to show her unconditional compassion but twice betrayed her faith in love is shattered.
Gen Quickpaw ( ● ) - The Ear That Listens
Gen Quickpaw: Met randomly in the snowy slopes of Coerthas the courageous though whiny man has always generous with his willingness to listen. He and his mate Tikka remain good friends with an open offer to take Star in whenever she needs a break from Ronin.
Ignee Flametongue ( ♥ ● ) - The Romantic
Ignee Flametongue: If flattery had calories Ignee would turn Star into a very fat cat. Fate would cross their paths and from the first moment they met Ignee was smitten with Star's happy-go-lucky attitude and seems bound and determined to change her negative view of love. She has her doubts he'll stick around and warns him often how terrible she is and yet he continues to do his best to make the woman feel appreciated. While the romantic feelings are in their infancy he's never given Star a reason to doubt him.
Ronin'ra Jinehga ( 💔 ♥ ● ) - First Love
Ronin'ra Jinehga: Never has there been a tale of love so twisted as the tale of Ronin and Star. They met while both working for the Kindred and though they were in other relationships at the time a secret affair blossomed as violent as it was romantic. The duo went through a lot together and Ronin was one of the best and worst influences on the woman's life. For a long time she was unable or unwilling to separate herself from him. At times he can be a sweetheart and at other times he is violent, possessive and abusive but equally so Star's fear of abandonment has caused her to become temperamental and territorial of her mate.
Aelfred Siegmundson ( ● ) - The Broken-Hearted North Man
Aelfred Siegmundson: From a chance encounter in the Quicksand to a drunken brawl in the desert the two struck an instant bond over a carefree, selfish attitude toward life and a similarity when it came to broken hearts. A notorious player and lover of Miqo'te, Star finds herself becoming swift friends and part of a larger group of women that seem to flock to the knowledgeable petting-fingers of this Highlander. In spite her attraction to him however the similarities in personalities between Aelfred and Ronin'ra have made her cautious to put anything more on the line than just her unconditional friendship. However after confessing the true nature of her childhood trauma the man's reaction was deeply scaring and the subsequent conflict between the two ended in a fight nearly to the death and they became bitter enemies.
Adokenai Kodomo ( ♥ ● ) - The Orphan
|Adokenai Kodomo - Star's very first day in Ul'dah she was stood up for a date. Distraught she ran all over searching for him when she came upon Ado in the Quicksand. She explained her plight to the young boy who proceeded to try and help. He played the perfect little matchmaker hooking her up with Rhashi Zahra. She mistook Adokenai at first for a very quiet, odd Lalafell and thought he was a genius. Still convinced the young man is vastly undervalued and is very intelligent she has started to make secret plans involving Ado in her antics.|
Rhashi Zahra ( ● ) - First Kiss
|Rhashi Zahra - Upon her first day in Ul'dah she was stood up by a date. Ado took sympathy and hooked her up with a nice man that sparked an on again, off again relationship with Rhashi Zahra. A kind man with good intentions but his inability to ever appreciate Star's ability to defend herself always considering her someone who needs to be protected caused numerous fights and culminated into the eventual final breakup after dodging duels with Star tried to take her place in a match against a strong Roegadyn woman. The slight at her fighting prowess and public humiliation was too much for her tender ego.|
Zaiaku Kurai ( ♥ ● ≈ ) - The Misunderstood Mage
|Zaiaku Kurai - After being told that he attacked Adokenai Kodomo, Star nearly started a tavern brawl with Zaiaku. She had to be hoisted and carried out of the tavern by her brother Niko. Later she ran into Zaiaku hiding out in Gridania and after talking to him became convinced the man was only mean because he was sad and lonely. She stalked him for weeks until finally she broke through his cold exterior and the two began a secret affair. She made promises to Zai that she couldn't keep and though she never loved the man she did try for a time to make him happy. Eventually however as others began to wear down on Star's personality she recognized that -she- was the monster and not wanting to hurt Zai any further in the long run pushed him away for good. After her break-up with L'aenoh it was Zai who found her in the wilderness and brought her back. His sentiment however that she'd betrayed him by leaving planted a seed of fear at being made into a captive of his affections. She broke up with him a second time, this time for good. Later Zai began to work his magic invading her thoughts and dreams trying to convince her to come back to him. With the aid of L'ysion she managed to subvert such images and the memories of Zaiaku were all but removed but at a cost. In the past he stalked her to the detriment of her emotional state but have since grown very distant.|
L'aenoh Tia ( 💔 ● ) - First Crush
L'aenoh Tia: He was introduced by her brother Niko when the man stated that he wasn't Star's type she became determined to convince him otherwise. L'aenoh's brooding nature and darkness attracted Star to him as she found a recognition of his self-loathing within herself. She confessed her past to him and his sympathy endeared him to her. L'aenoh became her first real crush that she believed for awhile was actual and true love. She went so far as to compromise her belief that she didn't want to settle down into a monogamous relationship. L'aenoh told her several times that if only she were that sort, the monogamous sort, that maybe they'd have a chance. In spite being fearful of throwing all her eggs in one basket and risk losing herself and her heart she gave it all up for him. Yet in the end her happiness barely lasted a week when L'aenoh broke up with her without warning on the idea that he had a very dangerous journey to make. Star had known men were out to get him, yet she was not deterred and even offered to go with him and remain at his side. He was afraid he would lose all his memories and she wouldn't like the new him but she was undeterred still. How she poised the question however was... if you like me, I'll go with you. L'aenoh's denial of allowing her to go with him made Star believe she never truly cared to begin with. (Short Story: A Shattered Heart). Star fled the city and began to train non-stop in Coerthas until eventually Zai came after her, the only man who noticed she was missing. She was finally convinced to return home and L'aenoh tried to patch things up to become 'just friends' but she pined for him anyway. Their friendship was a rocky one but as things began to take a turn for the worst between the haunted dreams being left by Zai, the altercation with La'neta and the increased alienation from everyone she knew it was during a date that L'aenoh crossed her path and in a bout of anger insinuated Star was a slut and a traitor. The following day when she confronted him (with a punch to the face) he insulted and embarrassed her causing a scene in front of the Quicksand. In front of her date he called her a slut that would sleep with any man that asked for it and implied that she couldn't be trusted. When her date decided it was best they didn't continue their outing... perhaps believing L'aenoh's words... Star fled the city in an outrage, seething and plotting her revenge on L'aenoh. Salem eventually calmed her down enough to promise not to try and kill the man but she was done pining over him. Finally L'aenoh tracked her down and managed to calm Star's rage and talk through things. Star gave him three tasks to complete in order to win her friendship back but she was done loving him. L'aenoh's last bit of advice as a friend was to tell Star that she did deserve to be loved... that she should try again with someone else, someone who would appreciate her better and love her the way she deserved to be loved.
Salem Nunh ( ● ) - The Kind Nunh
Salem Nunh: Aided Star when she was new to Ul'dah and new to her training. She picked a fight with a large tortoise and ended up badly injured. The man patched her up and she rewarded him with affection and a friendship both fleeting yet pure. She later mistakenly trusted Salem with a secret that he ended up not holding on to but rather confronted the man about it. Star learned that while Salem is a sweet man he was also perhaps a little too innocent for the 'real world'
Syleion Zereius ( 💔 ● ) - The Ex
Syleion Zereius: He was the reason Star ever joined the Kindred. A sweet yet shy man who was kind to Star and struck up a strong relationship between the two that had its ups and downs. The fall was primarily Star's fault as her constant push and pull of emotional drama was often escalated by the Seeker male and they argued almost as often as they made up. In the end however Star found fault in the man's posessive nature when he started to show hostility towards her male friends even when they had done nothing wrong. It was an attitude that eventually led her to leave him altogether.
