Appearance & Personality
Gilawafe always wears a neutrally saddened expression on his face. The first thing that several people would notice is that Gilawafe is very tall. His face is covered in various scars, particularly one across his left eye. His left eye also bears an eyepatch. Like his face, any visible skin bore many scars from his long career of battles. His back contains some of the most gruesome of the scars. If his back is exposed then he will go through a great deal to hide it.
Gilawafe can often be seen in heavy armor, carrying around a massive two-handed sword. Occasionally he can be seen dressed down in a light battle harness, and sometimes he can be seen wearing more casual, loose clothing when around Limsa. Those who are aetherically attuned might notice a very strong darkness emanating from him. Outside of combat, it is rare to witness this darkness in action.
Gilawafe's daunting presence often conceals a softer side.
Gilawafe does not speak often, and remains quietly tucked away at a slight distance usually. When approached he is very brief with conversation, unless he is approached regarding contracted bodyguard work. There are a few times that people have spotted Gilawafe carrying on conversations at great length with some of the individuals that have approached him.
In response to any instance where someone has stared at him with hostility or for a length of time, Gilawafe will meet the gaze and fall still. A similar response is seen when he or someone else is confronted with hostility.

- ♥ Yhah Dazkar - She frequented his table at the Wench for a long time. Over the course of several months Gila would finally open up to her. His displays of affection are usually very brief in public, but there is no doubt that he is doing his best to keep her happy.
- ♥ O'kovasi Maar - She approached him one fateful day at the Wench, looking for a story that might convince her to change her path. Gilawafe was willing to oblige the Mi'qote and forged what would become a very powerful friendship.
- ♥ Devilish Sarracenia - A very hyperactive and energetic Hellsguard that constantly torments Gila. The two share an almost sibling-esque friendship despite the rarity of which they speak.
- ♥ Travanaire Levesque - Gila met the Elezen man and the two became strong acquaintances after several contracts and missions together. Over time, their fates would inevitably become entangled along their journey.
- ♥ Amerida Baker - Amerida and Gilawafe share a very strange bond. Both have a very similar upbringing and share many feelings and beliefs in common than he had first thought. The two are often seen speaking to each other regarding the several misadventures that arise in their "adoptive family".
- ♥ A'khebica Ranu - Gilawafe's relationship with Khebi is a very brief one. He has seen her actively torment Zana'to to no end, and often sees the two together. Khebi and Gila do not interact often, but nonetheless he sees her as a strong ally.
- ♥ Zana'to Ranu - A Mi'qote with a strong fighting spirit. On their many misadventures these two developed a rather humorous "battle bond", sharing a similar degree of recklessness and rage as they charged into battle. As an added bonus, Zan often brings Gila fresh spring water by the keg.
- ♥ Lyon Mercury - Gila has observed Lyon in the act of protecting others and considers him a valuable ally for that reason. Though the two are very quiet, they both share the same sense of protective justice.
