❝ Anyone can become a star in the middle of a tornado. ❞


A man who prefers research and the company of books over other people, Stein is a rather quiet man. He enjoys listening to others converse as he merely watches, barely giving information about himself. Some question if 'Stein' is even his real name and when approached with said question, he gives different answers each time; Usually a shrug or a smile. He hails from Ishgard, working with the Venmortis Family, a noble house known for their crafts of clothing and jewelry, presumably the House's Doctor yet is seen within Ul'dah at the request of a house member.


The elezen stands tall, usually towering over others that surround him however, he does occasionally hunch over when his hands are within his pockets, a usual sign that a experiment went wrong someway and he might be contemplating how or why. He is pale but not a soft ivory shade or anything of the sort. It is a tad of a sickly pale color.

Silver with a mixed of grey hair is grown out, leaving to question what the natural hair color is or was. At the front, there is more silver while in the middle it is dark grey with a nearly black shade to it. His hair goes to his shoulders and conceals his left eye, leaving it unseen by the public. His eye color is also one to question. It is assumed he has violet eyes but his right has a scar across the top, damaging the eye and leaving it a milky violet. Along with the scar on his eye, he also has one across his nose, on his left cheek and left jaw.

Even though he is a man of study and education, he is rather well built for one that has chosen the path of knowledge over sheer strength. He possesses more scars across his body and holds no notable tattoos. His body is usually hidden away with coats he uses to study such as a long white coat resembling that of a doctor or scientist. On the rare occasion, and with recently residing in Ul'dah, he can be found in an open shirt due to the humidity. But this is only when it is unbearable, thus making it rare.

He wears a pair of glasses usually, despite the fact that his left eye is hidden behind hair.

Aspects That Stand Out:
On the rare occasion, he can be seen hunching.
It is believed that his left eye is a deep purple, peeking out from behind his hair.
When finding something [Or someone] interesting, he will approach them and simply look them over carefully before proceeding to ask deranged questions such as their blood type.
The man is a chronic smoker.


The man is very withdrawn from others. This becomes quickly known when one meets Stein for the first time and often question if they are boring the man or if he always looks disinterested. Many have said that they feel strange or even unsafe around Stein and who is to say they're wrong? Stein has gain a reputation for being eerie, deranged and even psychotic with some of his achievements. Even when the man smiles and science isn't involved, it is enough to make others shy away from him more, his smile never reaching his eyes, making them look dull or like he is planning something.

Question of sanity aside, very few people have managed to see a truly rare side of Stein. While the man is involved in his experiments and studies most of the time he can show a more caring, concerned side for the well being of those he calls friends. He has stated before that while how he practices his talent is a tad extreme, it is done because he wishes to aid others which has become apparent that it is simply shown in a different manner than others.

A member of the noble house he is employed under has stated that while Stein prefers solitude he is still prone to loneliness like any other person and is not one to speak about his personal issues so easily.


Weapons. The man enjoys older weapon pieces and is known to have a small connection, even though he does not necessarily use one or how to use some weapons.
Coffee. Be it hot or chilled, the man enjoys at least two cups of coffee a day.
Sweets. One might not have guessed it but the man enjoys his sweets, especially in his coffee. It's also a great way to get on his good side or to make him forgive someone easier.


Failing. Stein possesses a deep hatred for any type of failure that he himself makes yet is understanding when others do.
Desert. Spending most of his life in Coerthas, Stein has grown to despise the desert heat.
Loud Noises; Shouting While Working. Noise is a hatred that followed him since he was a child, finding it more difficult to work with sudden bursts of loud noises.


Alchemy. While more of a necessity, the man does enjoy working with alchemy even outside of work.
Experimenting. Experimentation is a favored thing with Stein even when there is no specific request.
Drawing. A bit of a hidden talent, Stein has quite the knack for drawing and painting.


Quick Learning. The man is a fast learner than most and is a quick thinker in time crunching situations.
Patience. After dealing with annoyances such as colleagues and clients, the man has built up quiet the patience.
Simplifying. He takes pride in being able to take something difficult, such as a subject of study, and simplifying it, making it easier for others to understand.


Empathy. The man simply does not know how to connect with others all that well, keeping his circle of friends very, very small which he is content with.
Portraying Emotions. It is very difficult for the man to portray the correct emotions. Or emotions at all.
Anger. While it takes a lot to get him to this point, he possesses a large anger issue.


Knowledge. Believing knowledge is the key to many this, it is one of his biggest motivations to learn everything.
Relations. While the pool of friends is small, they are a driving force to keep the man rather sane.
Lost Soul. He seems to be looking for a missing item and comments on how 'a part of his soul feels missing'.


❝ Anyone can become a star in the middle of a tornado. ❞
The man has not been seen possessing a weapon within his grasp as of yet or if he has used magic before. Many assume that his only profession in skill reside in alchemy and medical knowledge. That is all people know thus far, that is.
OOC Note: To learn more about what Stein does use as a weapon, it is best to either keep an eye on him or listen to his conversations if one is prepared for what they might hear.

Player Note
To kick it off, always remember OOC and IC do NOT blend with me. Even if my character, for whatever reason, may not get along with your own ICly, does not mean the feeling is the same OOCly. But this also means even if the characters are in a relationship, that does not mean we are OOCly as well. If you have any issues with anything stated in the profile or roleplay, please do not be afraid to approach me! I want the RP to be fun for everyone. We all play the game to enjoy the different aspects and interactions with others, right? That being said, do not be afraid and have fun.
Personal RP Limits
I don't have very many hardcore limits honestly as I feel consequences must be adhered to when RPing any character regardless of whom they might be. However there are a few exceptions to this and they are as follows.
I will play Almost anything however there are a few 'no gos' To see what they are, please check the next segment.
Ask about Death and maiming, (MRP all together) plot-hooks and ERP. While I do not mind such things happening, with given consent, please also understand this isn't a 'target over my head' for simply that. I have to be able to trust you and also know you rather well for these subjects, mainly the first and second and last. The game is not all sunshine and rainbows after all. However, I also do not ERP just for the hell of it. The characters would have to build towards it with a relationship already involved and a deep one at that. If the second is something you'd want to do, understand that she does have friends and family who will come after you if they learn and I would prefer a 'fade to black' scene depending on the person.
I won't play Anything where the above rules are not observed.
If you're ever uncomfortable, do not be afraid to tell me. I have stated this before but please, do not feel like you should be afraid to tell me that you are bothered by something or wish to know something. No one is perfect and I am certainly not but I do try to make sure others are comfortable.


Potential Plot Hooks
While the below is by no means comprehensive, it's a kind of spring board for walk-up RP.
Stein is rather open with his studies for the most part and is a doctor outside of the Company as well. If you're injured, need someone, Stein is there.
He does take on students for what he practices; Alchemy, History, Medical and Aether Studies.
Character Lore Adherence
