Pronunciation "VAL-ə-ree VOSS"
A mistress of the red, this arrogant duelist hunts wielders of forbidden magicks.

Born to a wealthy Ala Mhigan family, Valerie Voss lost her parents to the King of Ruin's bloody purges of the nobility. She was spared this fate by her grandfather, an Archon of Sharlayan and member of the Crimson Duelists, though it cost him his right hand and future as a red mage in the process. After Garlemald took Ala Mhigo, Valerie escaped the country with her grandfather and traveled across Abalathia's Spine to the colony of Sharlayan. There, she attended the Studium but was involved in a scandal that led to her expulsion not long before her graduation. This, in turn, led to a falling out with her grandsire, whose abusive teaching style resulted in her cutting ties to him altogether. She made a new name for herself in Ul'dah, not only as a mercenary and adventurer specializing in hunting cultists, ashkin, and voidsent, but also as a student of its signature trades: weaving, goldsmithing, and alchemy. Her varied skills and interests, as well as several successful publications on subjects ranging from magic to history to fashion, have helped her carve a place within the elite merchant class of Ul'dah.

Shire Philosopher:

A red coat made of griffin leather, adorned with rose gold and hardsilver, and affixed with titanium rivets. Valerie's attire is noticeably Sharlayan in make, as it was created for her in the city of scholars. A pair of black, leather gloves and boots, as well as leather pants, keep her warm in colder climates. The outfit is fashionable yet durable, and does little to interfere with her red magic. On the contrary, the astral silk undershirt helps maintain the flow of living aether throughout her body. The outfit has been treated with a high-level alchemical intelligence dissolvent, removing elements detrimental to her spellcraft from the attire and allowing her to better attune to the remaining beneficial elements.

High House Attire:

This ornate attire is a design popular in Radz-at-Han. Crafted from wind silk and rare chimerical felt, this crimson bustle is threaded with crawler silk and decorated with hardsilver adornments. The breeches worn beneath are of the same make, although the metal fastenings lining either side are made of rose gold. The boots, belt, and fashionable cloche are made of dinosaur leather with two chocobo feathers and two wildfoul feathers attached to the hat. While more commonly used as formalwear, Valerie is perfectly capable of combat whilst wearing this billowing noblewoman's attire. Two heart-shaped earrings, forged from gold and set with rubies, are typically worn with this outfit, though her hair often hides them from sight.

Best Man's Suit:

A sharply-cut, masculine suit, both the jacket and comfortable slacks are made of vanya silk and woolen cloth. A white, silken shirt with matching white tie is worn under the jacket, a small white handkerchief in the outer coat pocket to the left of its shawl lapel. A pair of jet black Gyuki leather boots and matching black gloves complete the set. Valerie is sometimes seen wearing a black cloth eyepatch over her left eye when wearing this suit, a fashionable accessory inspired by those of Mhachi black mages that provides protection from Voidsent gazes.

Duelist's Attire and Murgleis:

For their willingness to fling themselves into battle and stand toe-to-toe with danger, red mages were often referred to as "duelists." The description became so commonplace that it was eventually appended to the name of their traditional vermillion attire. The lavish feathered ornamentation on the chapeau was fashioned after a style historically popular amongst the Elezen. The tabard features a cape that not only provides warmth but ample space for weaving arcane geometries, allowing Valerie to take advantage of their boons without committing to a cumbersome full robe. The breeches are augmented with protective leather on the sides of the thighs and are belted snugly to the leg to prevent their becoming a hindrance in frantic combat. Valerie received her set from her late grandfather, but refused to wear it until recently due to her tumultuous relationship with him. She usually keeps it tucked away in a special wardrobe. More recently, she has acquired her grandsire's Murgleis, a masterpiece rapier styled after the favored weapon of Count Ganelon.
