General Information

Usually a friendly face, Theo oftentimes attempts to surround himself with others. Overall, Theo seems to have a healthy, yet sometimes cynical outlook on life. Oftentimes seeking new adventures, he's seemingly unable to stay in one place despite trying to "retire" and stay relaxed. The mention of any sort of adventure usually is able to grab his attention!


Long ears lead into his purple hair, stained with pink highlights. His hair ever-growing, he tends to wear it off to the side, trying to keep it out of his face where he wears a golden pair of glasses. His aqua eyes tend to dart around the crowd during a conversation, seemingly seeking an escape route if needed. Due to his time with Krizette, he is also often seen with gold makeup smeared by his eyes, highlighting the contrast.

    Early Life


    Raised in the Muthru Bazaar, Theo would often assist various traders and caravans in exchange for goods while his parents worked further into the city. Often setting up collections of wares to attempt to sell, he'd rarely sell and usually ended up bringing more home than he came with.


    After an accident that resulted in the loss of his mother and the disapperarance of his father, Theo took the increased imperial aggression as an excuse to flee. Ariving in the far-away Ul'dah, Theo met many traders that he'd often work with, thriving with adventurers.

    As he grew older, Theo started to blame himself more and more for his mother's passing. After meeting a Miqo'te named T'kuri Magum, he learned to accept that he wasn't responsible for the accident and that sometimes fate goes at its own pace. The two became very close friends, often spending weeks at a time with each other, day and night. T'kuri was the sole person to know Theo was a Viera, helping him to conceal this with glamour potions made from her research.


    Destabilization in the Ul'dah martplaces quickly led to Theo deciding to leave Ul'da, with a slight distaste in his mouth, and began traveling. Being unable to tell T'kuri, he left in the middle of the night. Taking only her name, he branded himself as "Theo Magum" for years to come. Along his travels he'd meet friends including Rae Misha, as well as Blaise Swiftwind before eventually meeting Krizette. Taking any job available, Theo would often be called a criminal, though he'd always manage to get his way out of these claims...

    After meeting Krizette and slowly falling for her, Theo decided to settle down a bit. Upon returning to Ul'dah and the Goblet, he created the Lodge for the Lost & Curious, a free company formed to house any who may need refuge. Though the Lodge has had its patrons, its operations are questionale, given the owner's past. It wasn't long until T'kuri ran into Theo, immediately recognizing her, where she learned he stole her name.
