Basic Character History:
Born into a tribe of Seekers living in Gridania, X'ouya is the son of a songstress, X'an Tyaka, renowned for her sappy ballads. X'ouya moved to Ishgard with his mother at the behest of nobles seeking "exotic" courtesans and he quickly assimilated with Ishgardian culture. Over the years, X'ouya learned the learned the art of the blade from both Doman refugees and Ishgardian knights — developing a synergy between the chivalry of the West and Bushido of Othard. Taught among the squires of knights and nobles, he found a strong sense of justice and felt inspired by the stories of Saint Reinette to be a force of change in the world. Believing deeply in the Halonic faith, X'ouya eventually became involved with the heretical Black Order, an esoteric Halonic cult dedicated to protecting the poor and weak from the ails of the world, seeking to shield them from its most immoral or dangerous inhabitants. While he holds the title of Friar, X'ouya is not recognized by the Holy See. Dismissed as a heretic by the Orthodoxy, he maintains his own humble chapel to Halone in the Lavender Beds at his apartment in Lily Hills. There, he hosts any who seek Halone's blessing or Her aid.
Character's Current Goals:
- Establish an abbey in Gridania;
- Share his music with the people of Eorzea;
- Protect those who cannot protect themselves;
- Spread his heretical Halonic faith
The Black Order of Halone:
A select few among the knights and clergy of Ishgard are those who follow the heretical teachings of Saint Ebonaire, a former squire of the beloved Saint Reinette who declared no allegiance to Ishgard but rather to all people from all nations, even the righteous among the dragons and beast tribes. As a knight, Saint Ebonaire painted his armor and crests in soot black, openly displaying he aligned himself with no house above any other. Like his mentor before him, Saint Ebonaire took up arms to defend the downtrodden. He also delivered divine judgment on corrupt priests and wicked knights. Saint Ebonaire was eventually burned as a heretic for attempting to foster peace with Gridania, with whom the Holy See had a long and troubled relationship. His teachings were kept by an esoteric cult known as the Black Order of Halone and compiled into the text known as the Faucheuse ("Reaper").
Personal RP Limits
■ I will play mature content and themes (violence, sexuality, drug/alcohol use, self-harm) as long as they're logical in a plot-driven encounter, including coarse and excessive language or temporary injury and incapacitation. Walk-up encounters and /tell's are welcome.
■ I won't play permanent character death, permanent injury, pregnancy, sexual violence, or rape plots.
■ Adventure! Mystery! Intrigue!
■ Meaningful connections for X'ouya to make with fellow believers or open-minded adventurers. Conversely, someone very opposed to Halone or the Twelve would make for interesting interactions.
■ Events or venues that prefer to have live music present.
■ Characters with hobbies or interests in religion, music, adventuring, and/or general do-gooding.
■ If an aspect of RP makes you uncomfortable in a scene we're playing, please send me a /tell, letting me know. Communication is very important, more important than potentially keeping immersion. I always want my RP partners to be comfortable!
