➤ FIRST IMPRESSION. Seitsuda may stand taller than his 6'5”, if he didn't slouch. A messy mop of straw-gold hair may stand to make him even taller. The Raen seems and sounds perpetually tired, from the nonchalant in every step and motion and rasp to his voice. Seitsuda is often contradictory-- doing his best to keep a distance from all, but a reckless sort to help all in need.
The Raen is often garbed in leathers and a scarf. He wears a white-gold armor akin to something found in the Far East, but only in pieces. With broad shoulders and arms, it may be an easy guess he knows how to properly wield the pine-green barbed blade on his back. A single umber gaze carries a shadow of tiredness, sometimes even that is barely visible in the rough, blonde hair. Sharp, gold-tan horns tipped slope back from the Au Ra's hair, and on one side, two black horns poke out. The other side, with a gaze covered in blonde, those black twins are gnarled and growing oddly..
➤ SCARS. Nicks and scratches litter his horns. Scars riddle his body, though that would yet be seen with how many layers he wears.
➤ QUIET. Typically the silent observer until things cross a line, and the man has lives to protect. He cares not to share his opinions otherwise, as that leads to attachment in some form or another.
➤ LONER. Born and raised a black sheep of a flock would have its drawbacks. The man has a hard time making friends, and history dictactes he struggle still. Now it's out of a fear for others getting hurt.
➤ GLOOMY. Seitsuda has a lot of burdens to bare-- or ones he won't let go of, anyway. It's left him with a haunted feeling and often a cloud hanging over his head. There are few instances where the sadness would arise, but as it does, it's difficult to pull the man from his dour attitude.
➤ PROTECTIVE. Despite all aspects of him above, Seitsuda absolutely can't help a true nature deep down to protect others who can't help themselves.
◆ He rubs the back of his neck a lot out of a nervous habit.
◆ Try as he may, that hair of his is untameable.
◆ An alert sleeper, and sleeps very little.
◆ Reckless with his life to a fault, as long as it doesn't put others in danger.
◆ The ocean is an unsettling thing for Seitsuda, still after all these cycles.
◆ “Absolutely sucks the joy out of the room when that one comes around. He gets his drink, sure, but I wouldn't try a conversation with him. You'd be better off with Jolly Jameson over there.” - Barkeep, Tavern in Ul'dah
◆ “I like him. He does what he's told without a word, nothing like the nagging beggars.” - Smug lalafellin merchant, Horizon
◆ “Tall, lanky fellow? Aye, took up the leve maybe a bell ago. Not sure with that blade though, it seems more ornamental than practical.” - Receptionist, The Adventurer's Guild of the Quicksand
UNCOMMON (INFREQUENTLY HEARD, REQUIRES SPECIFIC DIGGING TO DISCOVER)
◆ “For as hard as he worked around here, Seitsuda-san made it difficult to approach him. We keep records, you see, for the refugees. He would give nothing but his name, not even a surname, mind you. I suppose some see this as a way to start anew.” - Doman refugee, Revenant's Toll
RARE (NEARLY UNHEARD, REQUIRES OOC PERMISSION)
◆ “Seitsuda--... As in-..? It's such an obscure name, you know. Who else could it be? Kami above, I thought he passed on....” - Worndown Raen, Limsa Lominsa

"It haunts me to think the state I've left my mother in. She's a strong woman though... I don't know if I could face her again, to reveal the truth-.. that I'm still here."
♥ ● Matsu Shizunawa
"My best friend... I .. can't help a feeling that ... I'll never see him again."
"Nazyl reminds me of much that I wanted to be. He's a caring man with a drive and goals. We worked together with the Dauntless, and... I don't know how many summers it has been now but... we spoke again. I don't wish for him to carry on how I do. I wish I didn't extend that invitation..."
"A gentle, lalafellin healer. She has a big heart to care for all. I have so much regret that I did not show or speak more of just how important, and how much she did for all. She seemed so scared and uncertain that night outside the Goblet. I am.. happy she has the pillar that is Nazyl."
"I met her in the Thanalans... we took shelter from the rain. Little did I know, that Sun would be the last I see her a time, but not before bading me see to her free company. I helped them reunite with Siha and a few others. It feels so long ago now. She... does much for others, kind and caring and.. is no stranger to forgetting herself, I think, if... she's anything like I am. I.. really would do anything to keep her safe, if she wasn't already in Amra's capable hands."
"A man I trust. He's energetic, contagious with the attitude, and headstrong in whatever adversity comes. He's one of the few I'm able to work with well, someone I trust like I would a brother again..."
I'm not looking to attach myself to one particular person; I want a wide spectrum of players and personalities! While I consider myself a heavy RPer, work and personal projects (as well as doing PvE dailies) keep me busy sometimes, so if you're looking for an RP partner with whom you can spend most of your time, I'm afraid I'm not for you. I'd still love to meet your character and develop a story, but possessiveness and jealousy are huge aversions for me.
➤ COMMUNICATION AND RESPECT.
Want to RP? All you have to do is mention it in my presence, and I will try to make plans. It's that easy, don't be shy!
If you're uncomfortable? Tell me; I will do the same for you. There is little that can happen in an RP that will make me squeamish, so long as it is OOCly consensual among all parties involved. I prefer my RP to be a little gritty and I ask that at least an attempt is made to be lore-consistent, but otherwise I am open for all kinds of RP.
➤ CHARACTER DISASSOCIATION.
Seitsuda Gladepetal was a previous reiteration of the character, Seitsuda Hironiwa. Some reboots and revamps have been made and rumors and relationships have been adjusted accordingly and are accurate on this page. They may not be accurate on other pages where he is found!
All of my characters are located on the Balmung server. My timezone is MST. Working from home means my schedule is typically flexible. I just need a little bit of notice but I'd be happy to RP whenever, usually! I also enjoy Discord RP, for those who have a busy schedules/time conflicts, enjoy para-posting, or want something laid-back that takes place over casual windows of time.
Please don't be disheartened if we can't RP right away! It's best to set up a day with me in advance instead of sending me a whisper/message and wanting to set up a scene immediately. Walk-ups are always fine if you see me with the RP tag up, but if you find me in the middle of nowhere, just send a quick whisper first!
