All poise and decorum, Mihk'a's confident posture gives justice to his sinewy physique. Standing at a respectable 5'7", he's on the taller side where Miqo'te are concerned, with pale brown skin colored by the blue undertones that Keepers of the Moon are known for. He's thin and lean, with a runner's legs and a sleek, black-furred tail. Blades of ears stand from a wavy mop of carefully styled loose curls, and the strong line of his jaw and sharp edge of his chin give him a decidedly masculine face. The bright hues of his eyes stand as a stark contrast to his otherwise shadow-toned figure.

Scars & Markings: Traditional Keeper warpaint. Modernized by use of aether-conducting inks, he sports varying sigils on his body and marks his face in keeping with the customs of his people.

Voice: Sharlayan propriety, haughty indifference, and clear, modulated tones. It has a broad range, calculated and practiced to span from barbed, scornful admonition to soothing, honeyed praise.

Clothing: Modern professional. Button-up shirts, slim ties, peacoats, and dress shoes. His tailored attire sees precise adjustments to better suit his build and is always clean, pressed, and orderly.

audacious - academic - austere

  • In addition to the years of schooling required by Sharlayan law, Mihk'a has twelve years of college education to his advantage. With magic sciences as his major, his has a broad knowledge of the different schools of spellweaving and their potentials. While known to dabble in a bit of everything, a much of his skill is purely academic. Even so, he is a promising student of Arcanima, and is an effective practitioner of the arts of sigilism and red magic.

  • Those well-versed in Sharlayan theatre may find the name Mihk Epocan to be a familiar one. His mother has been a playwright in the Old World for the past twenty years. Her plays, revolving around drama, romance, suspense, and horror, have garnered both praise and the critical eye of conservatives. Her first play, The Winter's Ghost, was well received for its depth of character, but chastised for the lack of humanity displayed by the star role. Seven Hearts on a Chord was more drama than romance despite its name, with The Dastardly Schemes of Princely Turtanne being a chilling romantic drama featuring macabre comedy. The Bridge Between Heavens and Hells tells the tale of a father who rises and falls through the fourteen planes in search of his lost daughter, and is by far the most appreciated of her works.

  • Mihk'a has been journeying the Eorzean countryside for the past decade, spending much of his time prowling about the Shroud. His studies often lead him into such dangerous places as ancient ruins or the back alleys of Ul'dah's less than savory districts, though he proves to be just as much at home resting in the comforts of an embellished lounge.

  • Despite a lengthy text-focused education, he shows himself as an effective survivalist. Well prepared for a life in the wilds of the Twelveswood, he's far from squeamish when it comes to hunting and butchering his prey and has an extensive knowledge of the edible and medically useful flora of the Shroud and Orn Wilds. He shows formidable skill with a knife and is practiced in stealth and ambush tactics.

◢ Common Rumors - Easily overheard. Use these freely!

    "The Keeper? He shows up every once in a while. Orders himself a cup of coffee late in the day and sits down for a read 'til sunset. He doesn't tip big, but he's very polite."
    - Unassuming Waitstaff
    "He comes around for a drink now an' then. Lookin' down his nose at everybody. Seems like an arse."
    - Alehouse Loiterer
    "Pretty nice clothes for a Keeper, am I right? Always so crisp and well pressed. Not a stain on them. How does a guy who spends his nights running about the wood manage to keep his clothes so neat, huh?"
    - Gossipy Maiden
    "You know? He comes by my stall all the time, poking and prodding at my plants, SNIFFIN' on 'em, and not once does he purchase a damn thing!"
    - Irate Botanist

◢ Uncommon Rumors - A little more difficult to hear. Use sparingly or ask first!

    "Ah. The Keeper from Druthers. Played a game of cards with him. That was a mistake."
    - Disheartened Duskwight
    "Oh, I've seen him. Caught red-handed donating to the food drive last winter. He had all sorts of cookies and pies for the little ones who lost their folks in the Calamity."
    - Enchanted Elder
    "Yes. I know him. He spent a few days enjoying the clan's hospitality. Can't say where he's off to now, though."
    - Laid-back Poacher
    "Found him wandering outside city limits a few nights ago. Not unnatural for his kind, but the goggles he had over his eyes were... something else. Said he was "studying" the aether."
    - Wary Wood Wailer

◢ Rare Rumors - Very rarely overheard. Please ask before using!

    "Don't owe him money, do you? Him and that - bastard he travels with - you don't screw with 'em. They're bleedin' sadists."
    - Sketchy Alleygoer
    "Sure he can help with your magic troubles, but how much does he charge you for it? He's a damn thief. And an arrogant one at that."
    - Glowering Thaumaturge
    "He hangs around sometimes. In the infirmary. He was here when the Garleans came storming in... I remember his face. Dunno why he'd come back. Maybe he's got as much trouble accepting our losses as the rest of us."
    - Modest Ala Mhigan
    "Funny guy. We've had him suspect in a few missing persons cases, but never managed to turn any evidence to connect him. His problems just seem to disappear - and always when he's got the perfect alibi."
    - Unamused Blade
