➤ Y'URAQ TIA. (pronounced Yah-oo-rak Tea-ah)
Y'uraq is a half miqo'te seeker of the sun who was born into a union between a seeker of the sun, and a keeper of the moon. Unlike the majority his kind, Y'uraq was spared into the privileged life in thanks to his sire's success as a trader.
As such, Y'uraq's childhood was afforded many luxuries and opportunities outside the conventional seeker of the sun and keeper of the moon tribal standards. By his mother's will, Y'uraq was able to enrich his education and his talent for spellcasting while he grew up the civilized world. He further acquired a taste for cultures as he came to explore across Vylbrand through his adolescence, and meet folk from all kinds of walks of life across Eorzea and Hydaelyn under the relative safety of Lominsan laws.
His blissful and mostly care-free life carried through into his early adulthood, until the wheels of fate turned and burned with the night of the Calamity. Despite this tragic fate, it was Y'uraq's defiance against his dark destiny that set him on a grand journey of self-discovery and adventure those following years.
Although Y'uraq survived from his ordeals as a dark knight reborn, the experiences and knowledge he gained through those times have left him reconsidering much of his past perceptions between the light, the dark, the realm, and his place in it. Y'uraq intends to seize his second chance to live, thrive, and learn what it means to live and love again. To explore and pursue the vast reaches of the arcane. Unravel the mysteries behind his Mhachi ancestry. And further understand his knowledge over the dark arts on his own terms.
Regardless of the terrible risks and dangers these pursuits may pose on his future. Y'uraq braves toward his destiny into the unknown and new frontiers in search of his heart's deep desire, his freedom.


by Incansun/Y'uraq Tia
Y'uraq stands at just an ilm over six fulms, appearing slightly taller than the average male miqo'te. His darker complexion strongly suggest he is indeed no stranger to the sun.
Despite his mixed heritage, Y'uraq bares seeker of the sun traits, with the exception of his enlarged fangs that reveal when he grins, akin to keepers of the moon.
Y'uraq's stands with a lithe frame and height that makes him notably lightweight.
Y'uraq has been seen with varying hair lengths that hang down on both opposite sides of his head with his pointed ears slightly leaning toward the back of his head. And smaller fangs that reveal when he smiles.
Over the last couple of summers, Y'uraq has let his hair grow longer than it's ever been, currently reaching past his shoulders and half way down his back. For him it's a symbol of the growth and changes he's made since the start of his journey.
Since his travels, Y'uraq's interests have protruded in the finer things, which soon reflected on his casual and battle attire. Y'uraq enjoys outfitting himself with his own defining style while also keeping comfort and practicality in mind. Y'uraq keeps an extensive wardrobe filled with clothes and attires ranging from casual to elegant. He's often seen wearing the colors white, black, and/or red.
Numerous scars over his arms, back, hips, and torso. Each one tracing memories of the trials and hardships he’s faced throughout his life.
On his face, a long scar runs down his right brow, over his eye and a few ilms down his cheek, There is a smaller scar running down the left side of his face near his lips. Over the course of his journey Y'uraq has since added two black stripes over both sides his face and three smaller ones running down the bridge of his nose.


by Sarah Cleary/Z'laish Tia
Y'uraq has been regarded by many as 'morally grey' by many over the actions, and choices he's made over throughout the course of his journey.
He considers himself a man who simply driven by his personal passions and will do whatever he must to get what he seeks.
Despite Y'uraq's upbringing in the civilized world, he has been noted to exhibit aggressive and viciously feral tendencies. Notably in the heat of battle.
In the midst of the dangers stacked against him, Y'uraq has never been the kind to go quietly into the night. it was rather his defiance against the odds the with the best of his abilities that led him into some triumphant moments in the end.
His experiences, origins, and heritage have inspired him through the struggles of his journey. At times his pride would flip an imminent defeat into a moment of triumph in the blink of an eye evoking an incredible strength and constitution against what ever opposed him. However, misplaced pride served only to nourish his darkest aspects.
In his brightest moments, Y'uraq has been noted to exhibit exuberance, joy, and confidence through his vibrant, queer and cheerful demeanor toward the world around him.
Y'uraq's voice makes him incredibly easy to read from his high spirited and melodic, to calm and soft-spoken, to withdrawn, confused and melancholic.
Despite the destructive power Y'uraq became notorious for, he would at times surprise people with how caring and understanding he could be toward friends and strangers in need. In the end, it wasn't his sense of 'justice', but his empathy for the misfortune and suffering of others that revealed who he truly was.
As an 'academic enthusiast', Y'uraq leans toward an open mind. As such, he is eager to hear and learn about anything and everything from the world of spellcasting without immediate judgement.

YuraqDRKweapon1.png"Lacrimosa" : (pronounced Lah-cree-mo-sah) In his time of extravagant wealth, Y'uraq commissioned none other than the distinguished services of Brithael, Guildmaster of the Lominsan Blacksmiths' guild for a weapon fit for a dark knight of his fighting caliber. Specified with maneuverability, weight, and durability in mind, a zweihander was masterfully forged from the finest Ishgardian nightsteel ingots Y'uraq could afford those following moons.

Despite weapon's sheer beauty and craftsmanship, Y'uraq later named it 'tearful one' in his native tongue to finalize the weapon as his very own. Lagrimosa reflects Y'uraq past reminder that absolute destruction will lead to nothing but tears and misery in its wake.

YuraqBLMweapon2.png"Kattra" : Handcrafted in collaboration between himself, the Arrzaneth Ossuary, and the Goldsmith's guild of Ul'dah. Y'uraq was able to put together a neo-Ishgardian styled staff. The staff is made of electrum, chromite, and an a large, spherical augmented deep sapphire resting in the staff's core. The combined infusion between the umbral infused staff and the conductive properties of electrum allow for an evocation of a mass of umbral ice in a flash when needed. However, it lacks the stability to evoke or retain astral flames.

The staff was named after its beautiful golden body and blue crystal resembled a long forgotten friend that Y'uraq once knew and admired through his early adolescence during his travels at sea.

Yuraqflameringbrands.png"Ninataki Ringbands" : Armed or unarmed, Y'uraq is almost never seen without his pair of augmented ruby ringbands secured over the back of his hands.

Named 'The firesong' in his native tongue, allows Y'uraq the ability to draw and evoke aether from the astray leys with his bare hands without risking self-immolation. However, they do very little to protect Y'uraq from the pains and frostbites of evoking umbral ice with them.

YuraqPLDweapons1.png"Sunfury" & "Sunshadow" : The sword and shield that Y'uraq wielded through his fateful summer moons as a rising duelist across the Eorzean rings. Y'uraq has retired them since the end of his days as a paladin but keeps them displayed on a miqo'te-sized mannequin posed along with the armor he wore to combat in those times.

Although he rarely uses them for anything other than the purpose of exhibition. Sunfury and Sunshadow represent some profound and intimate lessons to Y'uraq that he will vow to remember forever.

Yuraqitem3.png"Broken Star's Heart" : Once an important relic to Y'uraq's past. This necklace was created with his mother's help, made and adorned with platinum, pearls, and an peculiar deep purple amethyst locked at the brooch. It once served as a symbol to a great promise of something great and wonderful ahead for Y'uraq, before it was lost in the Calamity. It was eventually unearthed by Y'uraq not long before it found itself in the wrong hands, and revealed but a sliver of the potential hidden inside. A mhachi soulstone.

Since its second recovery, the necklace has since remained broken since the incident that revealed its hidden treasure, Y'uraq has buried the broken necklace in an undisclosed location where it will rest as a monument to his mother's deception and betrayal. It would be another year before Y'uraq would recover the weathered necklace with the intention of restoring it for a new purpose.

Yuaqitemberylcrest.png"Beryl Crest" : Though the original Turquoise necklace he once wore from his Beryl Point has been lost in his travels. Y'uraq has chipped and cut through small turquoise rock to serve an eternal reminder of his origin, and the life he once had.
Yuraqitem2.png"Ch'buk" : (pronounced Cha-book) Formerly his sire's lance. Since it's recovery, Ch'buk has proven to be a sturdy and resilient piece of Lominsan steel in Y'uraq's duel with Kim'ahri. In time, Y'uraq reacquainted himself with the weapon, but has ultimately chosen to keep it stationary and serve as a memento to the sire he once looked up to.

YuraqPldstone.png"Soul of the Paladin" : In the summer of his time as a champion, Y'uraq became confident in his specialty with a sword and shield enough to challenge his skills and prove himself worthy to his Sultanguard mentors in a mere matter of moons. Y'uraq ascended as an initiate free paladin with his earned soulstone to guide him in the future.

However, Y'uraq's lust for battle and vainglorious tendencies often made him forget his creed as a protector. And it wasn't long before his soul of the paladin began to lose its luster and conceal itself the more he turned to rage for power in combat. Until it became unresponsive the day Y'uraq fell to the dark.

Y'uraq's soul of the paladin has remained unresponsive since that fateful day.

YuraqBlmstone.png"Soul of the Black Mage" : Since his first-hand experience on the receiving end its hellish powers, Y'uraq became ever-conflicted over the revelations his mother's secrets and deceptions left behind. Despite all of the dangers and consequences for possession of a forbidden relic, Y'uraq has guarded his inherited soulstone closely since.

Despite having found the guidance of a mentor, Y'uraq's quest to immerse himself into the world of black magic those following summers were met with many more dangers and turmoils. Regardless of his sincere efforts to unravel his forgotten potential with spellcasting, Y'uraq has steadily become more disillusioned as nothing but dead ends, and more bitter turmoils followed over his ancestor's mystery.

It wasn't long before His personal quest was diverted by the call of relic hunting. However, Y'uraq's choices have unraveled a string of consequences that have temporarily forced Y'uraq to cease, and reconsider his purpose in the world of black magic.

YuraqDRKstone.png"Soul of the Dark Knight" : In the midst of an unholy ritual, Y'uraq's spirits were broken from the terrible visions after coming face to face with the concentrated darkness that yearned for freedom, his darkside. Y'uraq was forced suffer the effects of his madness unleashed for moons before fate would spare him from his dark destiny.

With a lot of help from his friends, Y'uraq managed to face, and survive his trials, and tribulations his 'long strange trip' brought with it. After two, long and arduous summers of sweat, blood and tears. Y'uraq completed his joining ritual, earned his soul of the dark knight. Though Y'uraq found the redemption and forgiveness he long sought for, his journey in the path was far from over.

Three summers came and passed since Y'uraq was entrusted to study and advance further in the path on his own terms, and reflect on the dark knowledge he gained since his initiation as a dark knight. His risky 'trials and errors' have forced him to realize how important it was to remember the best examples through the other souls he came across his path, and to handle the worst with care. Y'uraq relies on the visions that ring deep in his thoughts, and the example of love, and courage to guide him to the next fragment of knowledge his soul crystal has in store for him.


Y'uraq was trained in several armed arts through his childhood. His training included his once favored one-handed swords, greatswords, rapiers and bladed weapons alike. Over time, his training with weapons extended toward lances, daggers, and battle-axes. While no means a master of the latter, Y'uraq is able to pick up and wield them as emergency weapons in a pinch.
Through moons of nightmarish trials and dark rituals and unspeakable deeds, Y'uraq has learned much from the Lambs of Dalamud and his former master in the forbidden arts. His abilities with void magic include evoking and manipulate aether from the land into a volatile and destructive force. Y'uraq's knowledge extends to forbidden alchemy, necromancy, shadow and blood magic. To this day Y'uraq has vowed to reject using his darkest and terrible knowledge as a force, but retains them close as a means to study, understand and identify it with clarity.
Note: Resistant to void/dark-aspected magic and effects.


Y'uraq training.png
Gifted with a strong affinity to aether, Y'uraq is able to evoke, manipulate, and channel aether with his bare hands should he need to.
Y'uraq's preferred school of magic. Years of studying and practicing basic aetherology through his youth has strenghtened Y'uraq's knowledge over both the astral and umbral leys. He is acknowledged by the thaumaturges guild as an adept in their ranks, Y'uraq continues to demonstrate and reflect the great and volatile powers of the fire, lightning, and ice elements.
Since childhood, swords have been Y'uraq's weapon of choice. Years of mastery and enthusiasm for swords and most of their variants have enabled him to drive, slash, swing and maneuver his blades with agility, and percision.
Y'uraq's will to fight pushes him to defy his odds, and fight past his known limits.
Despite his deceptively thin and light frame, Y'uraq's has proven the power to evoke a great physical might through sheer emotion alone. When his darkside is evoked, Y'uraq also gains an immense constitution, allowing him to withstand heavy combat at close quarters, while retaining an array of volatile and powerful spells at his disposal.


Y'uraq has been prone to underestimate his foes too lightly before learning a harsh lesson in his current limitations, and situational awareness.
Y'uraq suffered a heavy injury to his right leg in early adolescence. He is likely to fall with a firm and direct strike to his right leg.
Despite Y'uraq's set of skills and abilities at his disposal, he is very light for a man his height.
Y'uraq is vulnerable without a weapon, or his augmented ringbands to evoke spells with.
Y'uraq's greatest strength is a great double edged sword. Y'uraq's aether is easily sensed by voidsent, aetherscopes, and potentially gifted individuals.

Since his mysterious awakening in the wastelands of Eastern Thanalan with nothing but the rags on his back, Y'uraq embarked on a grand journey, or his 'long, and strange trip' as he endearingly puts it. In his search for answers and lost memories, Y'uraq's journey to rediscover himself as a wanderer yielded their moments of discovery and wonder, unanswered questions.
Before long, fragments of his memories began to return to him in the moons he took on the life of a sellsword in his travels. Y'uraq was able to rediscover some brighter things about himself including his way around swords, and his potential for spellcasting. Despite the heat of combat he faced at times, Y'uraq maneuvered himself with the best of his abilities and with intense focus. His past experiences in combat and sparring seemed like something he felt he enjoyed before he lost the rest of his memories.
His dreams however, were becoming haunted by dark and violent visions and from his forgotten past. Despite the terrible things Y'uraq felt before his twisted reflection, he also felt trapped realizing there was no one else he could trust enough with his predicament to turn for guidance at the time. Embracing his darkside as his instinct, Y'uraq became akin to evoking and harnessing the dark will and power to obliterate, it was everything and more to betrayed his promise as a full-fledged free paladin someday.
Y'uraq's pursuits for forgotten memories through vain contests of power and conquest yielded more than he bargained for. With more fragments of his shadowed mysteries surfacing, Y'uraq became haunted by dark memories, events like the mournful eve of the Calamity and the chains of the devastating memories led him to recall the moments of his dark deeds and his initiation as a dark knight. Those following moons became difficult for Y'uraq, as more conflicting visions and whispers from his own dark reflection that shadowed his further he sought guidance from his growing darkness.
Over the following moons, Y'uraq became increasingly influenced by his darkside. As such, he became viciously intimidating in combat. While times of peace left him restless and ready for more. Before long, it was his wrath against a murderer and thief that exposed Y'uraq and his friends to bear witness to his cruelties. To his own appall, Y'uraq was revealed to his own dark past deeds, and realized the high and great price he gave for the dark and terrible power he had awoken once more.
With the dark revelations that followed, Y'uraq found himself unable to run as forget like he once had. Instead, he was faced to struggle with his past memories as the force of suffering and destruction he had become. Despite the agonizing turmoils that stirred to tear his heart and soul apart, Y'uraq became determined to fight for his second chance and reclaim his freedom any way he could think of. Convinced he could simply hide his 'dark gift' from everyone around him, Y'uraq resumed his life attempting to pursue and reignite his past passions for spellcasting and the arcane. Only to discover his turmoils risen to further twist his reality into conflict once more, for himself and those around him.
Despite the odds and stakes raised against him during his darkest days, Y'uraq was still able to recover a lost heirloom passed from his mother that he kept closely that offered as much comfort as it troubled him to remember both fond and unwanted memories of her. Regardless of his dark burden, Y'uraq handled each of his trials and predicaments the best way that he could. And despite his evident flaws and struggles, he was never alone in his battles against the forces that sought to claim him as their tool of destruction.
Through it all, it was the examples of kindness and patience of his friends that reminded him of the good, the light he had inadvertently kept trapped in his own shadow. And at the hour of his most defining trial as a dark knight, it wasn't his ability in combat that quelled his darkside. It was the best lessons Y'uraq learned from the kind and caring individuals during his quest for redemption that saved him in the end. Y'uraq learned to show his shadow, himself the choice to show the kind of honesty, empathy, and forgiveness he had denied himself for so long.
Since completing his joining ritual and closing the darkest chapters of his life for good, Y'uraq made it his purpose to start his life anew, find his place in the world and seize the bright opportunities waiting out there. With the Eorzean alliance in need of hands reclaiming Ala Mhigo, Y'uraq answered Grand Companies' call for adventurers before fate brought him into the arms and care of a close relative aiding at Rhalgr's Reach. Following his fateful reunion with his extended familiars. Y'uraq returned home his bid to rebuild his life in the relative safety of civilization as far from certain dangers as possible.
In those following weeks, he delved into the world of artists, performers, and craftsmen across Eorzea. After a few moons between testing his talents between performing and working apprenticeships around a handful of theatres, guilds and kitchens, Y'uraq took it upon himself to establish his own humble label as a craftsman with the immediate aid of his adopted family. Even though Y'uraq and his adopted family enjoyed a great wealth and success together those following moons. The abundant Luxury and material gains did not fill the lingering void in Y'uraq's heart for long, not when he knew something far more important was still missing in his life.
After weeks of searching between the free city states of Eorzea, Y'uraq concluded the true solution longing thrhis days of turmoil. Over
He knew that he had a promise to keep to himself, it was his best to be healed from within. Without any more direction, and little motivation to move forward, He spent his days reflecting and his nights wandering the cities and wards to ease his tired mind since recovering more great memories as a promising spellcaster.
The mystery behind his inherited soul crystal and his inability to commune with it left him troubled and confused. Determined to uncover the mystery of his lineage Y'uraq has set on a journey to Yafaem, and look to the past once more to find his true destiny as a black mage.
Though his progress was steady at best, it wasn't long before Y'uraq found himself at struggle with

In the following moon since completing his joining, Y'uraq came across a peculiar, yet chipper xaela man whom was quick to assess his talent as a thaumaturge. It wasn't long before the stranger confirmed Y'uraq's suspicions, but the man didn't seem remotely as dangerous as black mages were thought to be. In the end, Y'uraq took a risk and revealed his soul of the black mage to the man who would become his new mentor.

NPCs (Vol 1)
Y’turo Tia:

Y’uraq’s Sire. In life, Y’turo was able to accomplish much since leaving tribal life in pursuit of success as a trader. He had since grown from his humble beginnings into affording only the finer things the civilized world had to offer one as him. Y'turo was noted much for his brute strength and skill with a heavy weapon in hand, but also diplomatic when he needed to parley with brigands and privateers on the high seas.

Y’uraq spent much of his childhood aspiring to be just like his sire someday, but his aspirations waned as conflicting truths came to light about Y'turo. Regardless, Y'uraq stayed and lived in Beryl Point with his father until the fateful night of the Calamity, Y'turo met his end defending the settlement in the midst of a pirate raid

Lia Iral:

Y’uraq’s mother. Lia was a miqo'te keeper of the moon born and raised by her mother among her kin, until she was spirited away by her none other than her sire. Under his mentorship, Rulia became initiated in the ways of her mhachi ancestors, the ways of black magic, and the terrible knowledge of the void. Lia has since grown accustomed to a life of secrecy, even from the rest of her family.

Despite the unconditional love he once had for his mother, Y'uraq's relationship with Lia soured after she banished his brother for pretenses Y'uraq protested as unfair. Lia went on to spend her final days asserting her dominion over her family, and the community of Beryl Point, going as far as antagonizing, emasculating, and abusing her way as the self-titled authority of Beryl Point over everyone that chose to remain.

Though Lia perished in the night of the Calamity, she was consumed by bitterness her pride. She left behind many mysteries, fragments, and myriads of her past deeds as a black mage. Among them was a mutual ancestor's soul crystal that Y'uraq came to unearth and possess she went out of her way to hide under her family's noses.

Y'nida Tia:

Y'uraq's older brother. In childhood, Y’uraq spent as much of his young years as he could at his older brother's side, between playing games to sparring against one another in sibling rivalry. They however began to drift further apart during Y'uraq's adolescence as Y'nida left to study abroad in Sharlayan under his mother's orders when Y'uraq was but 15 summers old.

Y’nida chose to follow his mother’s pressures, spending many of his years away from home while he learned and studied under some of the most distinguished names from across Hydaelyn. After ten long years of arduous studies, Y'nida managed to exceed and prove himself among the top of the newly received masters in aetherology and arcanima before making his grand return for Beryl Point under Lia's summons.

However, Y'nida was banished for expressing his unwillingness to undergo with his mother's demands any further. It was but a few moons from the Calamity when Y'nida's banishment came to pass, and fate was unknown to Y'uraq since. It wouldn't be another five years later when Y'uraq would recieve a letter by none other than his brother's hand. Since reconnecting with his older brother, Y'nida and Y'uraq have been able to exchange as many pleasantries as much as they were able to compare and share their advances between thaumaturgy and arcanima.

Though Y'uraq remains uncertain of his brother's exact whereabouts, he is relieved that Y'nida has survived since their tragic separation. He hopes to reunite with his brother in person again, someday.

Kailee Jeren:

A Hyurian Midlander Y’uraq once came across during one of his many young excursions around La Noscea during his late adolescence. Before long, Y’uraq and Kailee fell into their first romance that would lasted nearly two years before their inexperience and discourse drove them far beyond repair. Kailee departed Y'uraq's life with a bitter goodbye some years before the calamity.

It'd be many years before Y'uraq learned Kailee perished some time between their separation and her fateful reanimation at Rune Fury's side. Though she was possessed with the madness of a succubus, she retained many of her living memories. Embittered to live as a voidsent, she was promised her freedom in exchange for ending Y'uraq's life. She was defeated and slain by Kim'ahri in combat before she was swallowed into the depths of the Tam-tara Undercroft.

Y'uraq mourned her second death, he eventually found solace knowing the girl he once knew had perished long before runefury found her again.

Kina Nas'gul:

A keeper of the moon, and one of Y'uraq closest friend in his days before the Calamity. Y'uraq and Kina spent much time together venturing to Limsa Lominsa together from barhopping to partaking in many festivities together, and the company they had found. Despite not having the same kind of academic experience, Kina was a self-taught spellcaster and a force that at times gave Y'uraq a run for his money in the evocation of astral flames, but Y'uraq's own experiences with umbral ice made him formidably distinct from Kina's. Kina was happy to share her knowledge with Y'uraq which in turn did improve his own mastery over astral flames, even responsible for her part in creating his ery first augmented ringband of flames. She was however, relunctant to accept any tutorship from Y'uraq in the ways of improving her skills over umbral ice.

Despite having survived Bahamut's wrath over Eorzea. Kina was found and struck down by Y'uraq in cold blood shortly following his initiation as a dark knight. It was a deed that wrought dark and terrible turmoils that further complicated his struggles against his dark reflection. Y'uraq met her corpse reanimated as a succubus at Rune Fury's side. Kina fought and unleashed the flames of her fury at Y'uraq and his friends with the promise of revenge, and freedom to live free once. But she was struck down, taking one last bitter look of betrayal at Y'uraq, as the first time he murdered his friend and vanished into the depths.

NPCs (Vol 2)
Rune Fury & The Lambs of Dalamud:

A vile, cruel, and vainglorious witch whom worked her magic from the shadows since pledging herself to the Lambs of Dalamud's 'crusade against heretics and non-believers.' Before long, she was able to gain followers from the cult gathered under her mantle to carry out the will of the void through her voice. After their fated meeting, Rune Fury spared Y'uraq's life, but not without taking a special interest in a "sacrificial lamb's" ability to survive a deadly bloodletting ritual-by-combat, and dismember her former champion with raw darkness.

Rune Fury wasted no time inspiring the worst of Y'uraq's fears, rage, pains, and sorrows into a vicious force to be reckoned with. In the long run, it was Rune Fury's ill guidance and backhanded comfort that kept the feeling of bitterness and hatred alive to consume what hope for a bright future remained in her dark apprentice. Y’uraq loathed and despised Rune Fury for the torment her example and training subjected him to over those coming moons. It wasn't long before as the hopes for a bright and peaceful future in freedom dwindled into a twisted desire for freedom through vengeance.

Many moons passed before Y'uraq would finally find the opportunity he long waited for. In the midst of another bloodletting ritual-by-combat identical to his first encounter, Y'uraq approached Rune Fury close enough for him to drive and slash his blade into his dark mentor. Only to discover she was something much more. Unaffected by an otherwise vital stab through her chest, Rune Fury revealed herself as an undead lich and unswayed by mortal weapons. A vicious duel ensued between the reborn lich, Y'uraq, and the battered slaves that took arms against Rune Fury. Until a display of her power and promise of freedom tore half of the confused and desperate slaves to take arms against each other. Unable to overcome her terrible force herself, Y'uraq only managed as much as disarming Rune Fury, before he could lose her in his escape to the surface

Several reports and sightings of the Lambs of Dalamud were confirmed across Eorzea in the following years, be Rune Fury's fate was uncertain. Until her reunion with Y'uraq confirmed his worst fears as she revealed herself physically intact without a trace of injury, or the slightest tinge of death and decay on her complexion.

In her bid to reclaim her 'prodigal son', Rune Fury forced Y'uraq to take her trial before her cultists took Ca'yita as a means of 'motivating' him. With the help of his friends and allies, Y'uraq went on to confront and survive her trials without succumbing to the madness she thought to have ingrained in him. She was finally Tam-Tara to put an end to her madness and suffering over the innocent once and for all, before she sacrificed herself to become a dark eikon of suffering.

Although no trace of Rune Fury remains, Y'uraq continues to learn to free himself from the dark memories and torments of his former master's example. Though Y'uraq will remain a traitor-heretic in the eyes of the remaining Lambs of Dalamud, they've also deemed Rune Fury and her coven of cultists unworthy in their god's eyes.


Ironwing was found and retrieved in the wilds after having managed to flee and miraculously survive the tragedy of Cartenau shortly after losing his previous master and rider in the midst of Bahamut's wrath. The white feathered, and ill-tempered chocobo was re-issued under Y'uraq's care after his enlistment to the Immortal Flames. Despite their rocky beginnings, Y'uraq was patient with his steed, and refused to give up on gaining Ironwing's trust. Many moons passed before Y'uraq was able to build a bond with Ironwing and the Chocobo has since learn to open it's heart again.

Today, Ironwing carries strong bond with his new rider and caregiver. As well as becoming much calmer, and friendlier toward people and loud places that once made him feel very anxious and cornered. As a war chocobo, Ironwing is eager to speed Y'uraq across battlefields and dangerous territories. The chocobo has resorted to going as far as furiously pecking and kicking anyone or anything who would threaten Y'uraq or his friends.

Sena'li Mujuuk:

A morally-broken cutthroat hired by an Ul’dahn mogul following Y'uraq's unprecedented string of victories and conquests over the Grindstone and the Eorzean arenas one fateful summer. Sena’li was sent to break into Y’uraq’s home and steal anything and everything of value stashed somewhere inside. The thief bid his time carefully calculating his time before breaking and entering into Y'uraq's house in the Goblet, only to find Arzu still inside. Sena'li forced himself violently over Arzu, after she refused his demands to open Y’uraq’s safe. Arzu bravely defied, having struck and managed to fight off the intruder long until Sena'li's sentries warned him of Y'uraq's return. Sena'li stabbed Arzu right over her womb before his craven escape, hoping her mortal wound would buy him the time he needed to slip away.

Sena'li lived the following moons attempting to complete his contract, only to realize his mission was became increasingly complicated with his crew beginning to fail to report back after an attempted murder. Knowing Y'uraq was now mutually after his trail for vengeance. Sena'li went as far as dispatching contacts and assassins to kill Y'uraq, cutting his losses with the former employer.

Y’uraq, Arzu, and Altonio were eventually captured after a confrontation with Sena'li's thieves. They were brought into Sena'li hidden hideout in the desert for execution before Sena'li went into great and descriptive details over the day he made Arzu his, and his plans for her after he and Altonio were dead. Sena'li but turned away to lay his hands on Arzu just before Y'uraq was able to free himself and seized his moment of vengeance. Sena'li spent his final moments in tears and suffering with every moment he begged Y'uraq for forgiveness while Y'uraq continued deny him until he finally died. Y'uraq looks back at those moments, still disturbed by the dark and terrible extremes he was capable, he's since vowed to never let vengeance become a part of his decisions again.

He found much peace when the news of her death eventually reached his ears, he was surprised to learn she was downed by none other than Gyo Shouzhen

NPCs (Vol 3)

Ca'nipe Nunh:

Though Y'uraq hadn't suffered Ca'nipe's tyranny like Ca'yita, her family, and tribe had. Regardless, he vowed to strike Ca'nipe down after he discovered Ca'yita bleeding, beaten, and battered to an inch of her life. Y'uraq was convinced there was not going to be a more perfect opportunity to exercise and unleash the wrath of his shadow in the name of justice.

In the end, Y'uraq had indeed served the Ca Tribe as a proper Dark Knight, and a defender of the downtrodden. While inadvertently earning his Nunhship title.

Ca'geh Zihde:

Since stumbling upon the curious and self-appointed "little shadow", Y'uraq's darkest hours took a heartfelt, yet illuminating detour upon discovering none other than Ca'yita's estranged little sister. Despite Y'uraq's optimism to reintroduce her to her family, Ca'geh plead him to keep her a secret from the rest of the Ca's. Y'uraq agreed to the little girl's terms and resumed meeting with the little shadow at her discretion.

Before long, Y'uraq was able to learn much about the Ca's through Ca'geh's life and the recent past. She often kept a close watch, stalking and observe Y'uraq leading her tribe through their recent hardships. When Y'uraq made his plans to step down as Nunh, Ca'geh immediately begged Y'uraq to take her to the civilized world with him. Y'uraq did not need much convincing. Y'uraq however struggled much to convince the child to accept the opportunities a new life in Civilization could offer her, she did not sway from remaining in the shadows.

After a brief conflict with the troubled child, Y'uraq was able to dissuade Ca'geh from nearly killing her own sister in a bid to keep her asleep forever, and even trust him into waiting until her sister awakes. Watching the two sisters reuniting brought Y'uraq memories of the his own long-lost brother.

The following moons have improved as the two were able to bond awhile before their friendship became adrift and distant. Though she is still wary of the rest of the world knowing she exists, he hoped to help Ca'geh come out of her shell. While Ca'geh has indeed become more and more outspoken those following moons, Y'uraq feels his lack of having been a proper role model has made her rather difficult to deal with.

"The Ca" Sisters:

Ca'yita's half sisters, named Ca'yume, Ca'rina, Ca'khuna, Ca'ohmo, Ca'dalaa, Ca'towi, Ca'mia, and Ca'sanra. After Y'uraq stepped down as Nunh of the Ca tribe, eight women from the Ca tribe swore fealty to Y'uraq and followed him back to civilization. In the following moons, Y'uraq had helped them settle in Gridania, and establish a steady living as his retainers and huntresses.

Since then The Ca's have each made their own efforts to adjust living in the modern world while and explore the possibilities they couldn't had found back in Southern Thanalan. Including the new friendships, and adventures they went on to have on have on their own. Over time, Y'uraq's relationship with the Ca's steadily shifted from traditional tribal conventions and more into a more civilized and professional partnership. In the end the Ca's hard work and dedication to Y'uraq's enterprise yielded everyone involved a lot of wealth.

Since expanding his business out further East into the city of Kugane, the Ca's were assembled and dispatched to gather and collect the exotic and valuable raw materials from the recently liberated region. As the Ca's expedition moved further northwest into the Azim Steppes, they were met by Xaela and their vast and diverse cultures at the settlement of Reunion.

Before long, the sisters voiced their wish to resign as Y'uraq's retainers and settle down to live among the Xaela. Y'uraq obliged happily to the faithful sisters before gifting them with the deed and the properties of Rosepetal Fineries, assuring they can return calmly to Eorzea as the hardworking entrepreneurs they proved themselves to be.

Ziho Lizuh:

Following the series of events in Southern Thanalan, Y'uraq shared a fateful encounter with a keeper of the moon miqo'te girl he remembered meeting and befriending once upon a time before the Calamity. Like the rest of Eorzea, the tragic events had claimed the life Ziho once knew as well. Thought she was unwilling to speak of her missing years, Y'uraq's days in Gridania became brighter as the two spent the following week re-kindling their friendship before things took a much more intimate turn.

However, Ziho's intentions proved murderous in the end. The turned-succubi's attempt to end Y'uraq's life in the midst of their moments in bed togeteher. Y'uraq was able to overpower Ziho and took a dark pleasure in tormenting the voidsent a taste of her own medicine before consuming her aether for himself, but it wouldn't be long before he discover the terrible repercussions of his dark deed.

The inadvertent efforts of sylphic magic and alchemy allowed Ziho to re-emerge from Y'uraq madness as monstrous arachnid, before she was immediately confronted and put down by Kim'ahri, Syf, Ca'yita, and Ca'geh.


A former leader of a pod of touched ones. Kitxio bared witness to Y'uraq undoing his twisted 'prank' to feed him and other 'walking ones' to a mutated morbol. During Y'uraq's rampage, Kitxio was able to sedate and imprison him with aim to control the 'scary one' and unleash the monster he witnessed on little solace. Before his plans were thwarted by Katxia, with help from Ca'yita, Ca'geh, Syf, and Kim'ahri coming to rescue Y'uraq and his 'pod' from his shortsighted plan.

In their following encounter, Y'uraq found it in himself to forgive the disgraced sylph, to his sister's approval. Kitxio spent much time ashamed of his past deeds that following year, until he and Y'uraq fought side by side in attempt to defend the remains of his pod from a unit of Garlean deserters. He was slashed down by a magitek reaper in effort to save his kin.

NPCs (Vol 4)

She immediately took it upon herself to soothe, cure, and switch her own medicine to help him counter and resist sylphic illusions. Since his rescue from the Sylphlands, Katxia has been grateful to Y'uraq's friends for saving her kin from the monster her brother unleashed. She was compelled enough to venture beyond her homeland and join Y'uraq on his adventures to lend her healing hand.

Since Ca'yita's rescue, Katxia returned to her home at the southern reaches of the Sylphlands where she was able to recover from Y'uraq's dark ordeals in relative peace that following year. Until the rage of conflict in the neighbouring Gyr Abania brought a unit of Garlean deserters to trample and occupy her pod's new settlement. Despite Y'uraq's aid, Katxia lost much of her pod in their battle for freedom from the Garleans.

With nowhere else to turn, the touched sylph has agreed to live incognito under Y'uraq's protection.

Ronzoix Joubert:

A disgraced Ishgardian nobleman whose deceptive ways earned him a place as a slave master among the Lambs of Dalamud. Y'uraq was helplessly tormented under Ronzoix's boot in attempt to break him.

Since Y'uraq's escape. Ronzoix's corpse was retrieved and reanimated as Rune Fury's new champion. Ronzoix sought vengeance on Y'uraq, driven to take what he valued most. However Y'uraq's might proved to be the greater once more, and Ronzoix was forced to into a last resort, With the immense aether evoked by the stolen soul of the black mage.

Despite resistance by the huntresses and defenders, Jemomo's crew crushed and murdered those that resisted the pirates and capture the remaining survivors of Beryl Point, including Y'uraq.

Y'uraq still looks back at Jemomo, and people like him with scorn. It would be many summers since the Calamity before Rune Fury would offer Y'uraq his vengeance on his slaver. Y'uraq willing walked himself and his friends into her trap, only to survive certain death thanks to them in turn. Jemomo revealed his connections to the lambs and his place as a pupil of Rune Fury. He too was promised with freedom and more riches waiting for him, with the end of Y'uraq's life.

In the end, Jemomo was overcome by his darkside's greed and unleashed his fury on Y'uraq, and Zisa'a in vicious combat. Before he was sliced and severed in half by Y'uraq's blade.


Memories of an elder Y'uraq once knew during, his final moment beneath skylight before venturing toward his destiny deep in Tam-tara. Though the tribe elder passed away during Y'uraq's early childhood, he remembers her loving and patient example along with lessons she had to teach him whenever he was sent to her council for his misconduct.

Y'tita taught Y'uraq to live an honest life without ulterior motives, or needing to control the world around him. More notably, Y'uraq remembers the parable she told him of the love, humility and kindness white jaguar that stood for, and everything the bitter, prideful and hateful black jaguar could be if he ever stopped and listened.

Y'uraq built a second mammet after 'Ronny' with intent on making him the bass guitarist of his new band. His absent demeanor often clashes in contrast with Ronny's own eccentric demeanor, lacking a share of vision. He is also much more patient, or simply just too care free to care about anything other than playing his instrument. Whether or not other people would come watch and listen to him.


The final addition to the band. Y'uraq designed and built a slightly larger mammet around his torso in order deploy and retract his drum set from his storage compartment between performances.

Between the battles and the escalating bitter rivalry he once felt Kim'ahri instigated, Y'uraq has in part failed to keep his own pride out of their argument. Because of their gross misunderstandings, Y'uraq currently holds an uneasy truce with the giant, but hopes they can bury the hatchet sooner than later.

Zisa'a Yguara:

Despite the poor impression Zisa'a has left on his friends for being part of Ca'yita's kidnapping, Zisa'a plead to redeem himself for his actions has struck a soft spot in Y'uraq's own quest for freedom and redemption. Y'uraq has since allowed Zisa'a to prove himself through his actions to help bring Ca'yita back from her capture. Over the course of their adventure to save Ca'yita, Zisa'a was able to gain Y'uraq's trust, and friendship... To some extent

Aoki Kha:

Y'uraq met the eccentric, yet curiously insightful man after following the scene of moko grass into a railway tunnel across the Coffer & Coffin. Though Y'uraq was immensely cautious around Aoki, he has since grown to trust the man's offer in guidance into improving his potential for spellcasting while mentoring him in the fine arts and philosophies of black magic. Despite being a male Xaela, Y'uraq finds him incredibly easy on the eyes and hopes to learn much from his new mentor.

Scenes and Ambience (Vol 1)

Scenes and Ambience (Vol 2)





✦ I consider myself to be a medium to heavy roleplayer, I'm a sucker for long-term character development and story continuity. I also consider as a dynamic roleplayer, this means that I keep my IC and OOC knowledge between myself and Y'uraq well apart, this keeps the fourth wall nice and sturdy.

✦ This also means that I do not, and will not do or accept any 'fast forwarding of major character developments' between Y'uraq and your characters or permit 'metagaming' of any sort.

✦ However, due to the length of some scenes taking potentially longer than a couple of days depending on scheduling. OOC discussions to establish a time lapse after a scene without disrupting each other's stories is the only exception to the rule above.

✦ 'Retconning' is only limited to retyping a post before giving other people in the scene a chance to respond. Otherwise, I will not negotiate it. Part of character development is things may not always work out perfectly, but it's up to your character to overcome the obstacle. Own up to the consequences!

✦ In addition, 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.

✦ With that said, I reserve the right not to engage or RP with someone I wish to avoid. This goes back to the whole "dynamic" RP thing, forced and unwanted interactions are never a good thing.

✦ Though I may not always be IC or available while I'm online, please be sure to send me a tell before initiating roleplay with me. Unless I'm already committed to something else, I would be happy to drop things aside and set up for a scene with you. If I'm already ready RP'ing, feel free to walk up and join in. I don't ignore people unless they're trying to grieve RP.

✦ I generally use /say as my default designated RP channel, but I also use /tell, /party to IC when the circumstance or distance requires it.

✦ I am an M/RPer, meaning I am fine with the possibility of being part of a story arc that includes violence, sexuality, drug / alcohol use, dramatic, obscene aspects, scenes and plot points. In addition, I am fine with Y'uraq facing his own moments of weakness, and defeat. However, keep in mind I do not want to have this happening every day/week/month. I expect these to be nothing more than certain scenes and important plot points and helping someone progress their story development and/or my own.

✦ Scenes with moments of levity are always welcome where possible.

✦ I am okay with some lore-bending. If the lore does not explicitly state something cannot be done and you have a valid reason for doing it, then I have no problem. I have some of my own head cannon that fills in areas where the lore team was not as detailed as I and others would like, the gray areas that are perfect for bending without breaking. However, complete disregard for lore limits and continuity is not okay.



✦ Death/ Rebirth - If Y'uraq dies, he dies. No one is allowed to kill him unless the circumstances are set for his life to end that way.

✦ Ask about long-term injury and disfigurement. Long-term captivity or imprisonment.
