- Marking/Tattoos: Vash has traditional Miqo'te male markings on his face. Vash has a falling feather tattoo on his upper left back. He got it only recently to remind himself of the freedoms he has that others do not. Vash also has two striped tattoos on his cheeks he got when he was a young man in his tribe and was considered old enough to hunt and be a man.
- Complexion: Vash spends a lot of time outside in the sun wandering around. So Vash is naturally tanned.
- Build: Vash is not the biggest Miqo'te nor the strongest but he does have a toned body. However, Vash relies on being agile and quick so he's more lean than bulky.
- Voice: Vash has a British accent however the way he speaks sounds like he's drunk half the time. He tends to leave off the ends or beginnings of words. Much like a pirate.
- Style: Vash has an array of different outfits. His life as a thief giving him wealth he never had, he can afford all sorts of clothes. He loves black, white, teal and red for colours sticking to black mostly. Vash also and loves knee-high boots and baggy almost ragged outfits for adventuring rather already ripped up clothes get destroyed then something meaningful. Vash enjoys a more casual style when not adventuring preferring to be comfortable over fashionable. Vash cannot stand dressing up especially in formal attire as he feels like it's not who he is as a person so he avoids fancier occasions such as balls and weddings if he can.
- Misc: While not a sentimental person normally, Vash has a Genji Katana and a pair of Yoshimitsu's he carries one or both of them with him wherever he goes as they have deep meaning and value to him. Vash cares deeply for those weapons going as far as to risk his life for them a few times. He also usually has a flintlock pistol on him that's gotten him out of many bad situations. Vash also sometimes sports a rogues guild ring left finger a lot of the time to show his allegiance to one of his many employers.
- Vash is a wild card with what he does and, cares about changes on an almost daily basis. One day Vash could be infatuated with a lover about to marry them the next day he could care less. Vash's attitude changes like the wind which makes trying reign him in quite the chore. One top of that Vash's almost magnetic pull to trouble and anything that remotely resembles it always makes people who have to deal with him and his antics practically exhausted. Other then driving his friends crazy. Vash does enjoy adventuring and new experiences as he grows bored quickly with things.Also something he really enjoys is to prod at most of his friends to see their reactions. Vash is a very straightforward person however when it comes to people. He will tell them exactly how he feels with no holding back. This sometimes leads to some romantic involvement, however, Vash is not very good at maintaining romantic relationships unless they mean something to him.
- While Vash is normally not seen as a serious person he always has a goal in mind, whether people can see it or not is another thing. Vash is his own brand of crazy but he does mean well deep down. Vash does have a serious side to him however it is almost never if very rarely seen. Vash doesn't like to take things too seriously as he likes to find enjoyment in the little things. Vash has no loyalties to anybody and while he cares for people at the end of the day self-preservation and his goals will always come first. He will do what he needs to reach his goals. Whatever those may be.
- Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
- Morals: Vash marches to the beat of his own drum. He does what he pleases and has no regrets. Vash lacks a good moral compass finding it hard to separate right from what other people would consider wrong. This tends to lend Vash in a lot of trouble due to him not seeing or understanding why other people would consider some of the things he does as wrong and not alternative paths to some goal.
- Messing with People
- Do Gooders
- Most authority figures
- Person: Carlon
- Color: Black
- Food: La Noscean Oranges

- A nimble fighter Vash relies on quick successive attacks to wear down his enemy. He aims to tire them out and strike when they are worn out. Vash is not above fighting dirty and could care less about honor in a fight.
- While fast Vash's combat style is very high risk, high reward. Vash can take a few hits but a few is the keyword. He scrafices more protective armor for speed. Vash can be downed if the opponet can get some hard hits off.
- A lot of Vash's crafting skills are used for survial or practicaly then for the love of the craft. He does enjoy making some odds and ends for things but Vash would much rather be doing anything then sharpining a blade or boarding up walls.
- While Vash can make some items his knowledge of crafting overall is very limited. Since Vash finds crafting unenjoyable a lot of the items he does make come out sloppy or incorrect.
- Absurdly Lucky
- Vash was trained in the art of the rogue and shinobi both from a young age. Vash has relied on thievery for most, if not all of his life. It's been the only constant and he actively uses and practices his skills.
- While Vash is a very well trained thief, his hubris somtimes is his downfall. Vash has a flair for the dramatic which dosn't always work out in his profession.

- Abaigeal Causland- One of Vash's friends, they click quite nicely. Vash enjoys her not just because of all the energy she has, to rival his own. Although, maybe it's because she melts every time he gives her "ear wuggles". Whatever it is he loves to be around her.
