■ Sunbathing. But no one has ever seen her do it... Vervara is very fond of the outdoors, preferring a hike to shopping, a swim to shmoozing and a roll in the grass to the life of any courtier. She was perhaps too indulged as a child, and she has her suspicions concerning why, but this allowance to roam away from the city has given her fair endurance and a mind content to be alone with her thoughts.
■ Children. But she has none of her own... Nothing can bring a smile to her face like a child's mirth. Where appropriate she will treat any child as if they were her niece or nephew, with due respect and affection. However, on the occasion she becomes more involved in the life of the child, she will often become a bit more austere, watching from afar but always available and ready to listen.
■ Tonberries. But so many think it some uncouth desire... The woman has taken in a fair number of these creatures and they live with her of their own volition. Those with her are generally self-sufficient, but too misunderstood, too few and too green to live as a true part of the Eorzean alliance, even in the capacity of a beast-tribe. Thus, they have a mutually beneficial relationship with Vervara.

■ Leeches. In particular. Vervara doesn't have many qualms when it comes to creepy-crawlies, enjoying the company of many, but also not shying away from stepping on what needs to be stepped on. These suckers, though, can make the woman turn green and even squeal in terror. No one has asked why.
■ Bell Peppers. Ick. Despite liking spicy food in particular, and vegetables, bell peppers that haven't been cooked into oblivion repulse her. The simple smell of them will make her nose turn up in distaste.
■ Prejudice. Too easy? If you take the above into account, she doesn't have many deep-seeded hatreds that actually carry any true weight with regard to her character. Despite seeing some things in her life as a once-vagabond, she has really only developed some run-of-the-mill, cliche dislikes. She has been fortunate. Perhaps it could be said that she hates when others remind her she has been so lucky in her life. As if that life doesn't mean as much in contrast.

■ Flirtatious. It gets her in hot water. Any who think to look into the habit will notice she tends to use flirtation in self-defense, as if to disarm an opponent. Others have pointed this out to her, as if she didn't know, and she reacts in a rather nonplussed fashion as there is no lie in any professed affection. Friends are not exempt from certain attentions either.
■ Taking in Strays. Mom said no to her critters too often. Aside from her Tonberry friends, Vervara is very likely to take on causes and individuals that aren't doing so hot. She has realized there are some who do not want her as a champion, but sometimes she just can't help herself.
■ Over-eating. Are you going to finish that? She'd be the first one to tell you she can eat her feelings. What are you going to do about it?
