General Information

Staunchly devoted to making new friends and acquantances laugh, Yur is a light hearted but oftentimes sarcastic man of a Miqo'te. More often than not one could find him hanging out on the back wall in the Quicksand pretending to be part of the decor.


Yur is a rather fashionable Miqo'te as far as those from the Shroud are concerned. Rather than dress himself in tattered rags or tribal garbs, he values more simple/modern clothing such as sweaters and other basic shirts. As far as his figure goes, he's rather par for the course when it comes to male Miqo'te. Lean and somewhat tall, he's often described as being almost "statuesque" by those around him. (Probably because he's often spotted hanging around the walls of the Quicksand.) His face, as he would tell you, is his bread and butter. Stunning crystal blue eyes with a somewhat inviting gaze, he often finds himself being the target of unwarranted and unprompted compliments and advances. His hair as of recent has gained a bit more shag as he usually neglects to solicit a haircut. Not that he minds of course. One constant theme with Yur is his propensity to clad himself in Royal Blue. Hence his nickname of "Blue" by those he associates with.

At first Yur seems rather distant and cold, but that's usually often enough because he's not actively paying attention to his surroundings. He earned the nickname of "Statue" as result by patrons of the Quicksand which irks him slightly. When someone finally speaks to him, he's rather jovial and warm to engage in conversation. It's known that when he talks, he sometimes will emphasize words with hand motions. Outside of that, he often fidgets with his hands when not actively engaged in conversation.

Philosophy & Ideals

Yur is a believer that people should be who they want to be and that no one has the right to tell another how they should live. He believes in free society, one that benefits all people rather than those at the top. Which is why he helps run a facility that nurtures those who hurt or find themselves down on their luck. From emotional to physical, pain is something to be forgotten within the walls of his Company house. He even goes far enough to offer free food and drink within the bar he owns and operates within the walls of the house. In addition to his belief that people should be who they want, Yur himself finds himself never one to turn down affection from any gender.

Early Life


If one can tell Yur about his childhood, he'll be even more excited than one who'd inquire. Yur has no recollection of his childhood outside of being isolated and separated from his family. He doesn't recall much about anything during this time outside of being shipped off on a merchant ship bound for Kugane. With no rhyme or reason, he found himself in the care of a sponsor who would never make themselves known. Thus Yur spent most of his childhood living on his own under what he presumed was the watchful gaze of the sponsor and their contacts.


Yur struggled with his surroundings due to how fundamentally different it was from what he was taught. From early in his adolescence he found himself in boarding schools in Kugane, often unsure of who it was that was sponsoring him. The thoughts continued to plague him as he grew, but he knew for his own sanity that he would need to banish such thinking in order to focus on making it for himself. It was there that Yur discovered he had a knack for initially "ghosting." Yur found that because he was so uninteresting, he had a knack for often or not being nearly nonexistent with his presence. This led him to make many a Gil for those who wished to procure information on the happenings around. Not one to turn down income, Yur found himself employed by many different factions in an attempt to take down the others, never once mentioning that he was already on the take for another. He saw this as a chance to manipulate the flow of information to his advantage and basically made himself untouchable to those rogue elements. As the years went on, the factions steadily declined in power and such Yur found himself with a slowing of income. The young Miqo'te with a slowing income would then find himself bouncing around doing various odd jobs for the local folk, building a sort of trust among them to give himself a sense of belonging he often went without.


Adulthood was kinder to Yur. With enough money saved, he eventually traveled back to Eorzea to forge a path of his own in what he learned was actually his homeland. An eager Yur set out to prove himself in a vastly unknown land as a renewed sense of adventure took hold of him. Becoming an adventurer of sorts allowed Yur to travel between all the City states to figure out which one would be preferable for his talents. Eventually settling on Limsa Lominsa, Yur found himself in the employ of various locals in an attempt to build up a reputation as someone who could be relied upon. With that trust established, Yur was basically always seen as someone who one could come to to handle problems that would arise that were out of the scope of the Yellow Jackets and Maelstrom.

It was also in Limsa where Yur found his love of bartending, having learned a thing or two from old Baderon. With a new skill in hand, Yur eventually met up with some like minded individuals and with them he found himself a home and family that he longed for. Together with them, they purchased a fairly sizable house in the Mists essentially cementing his citizenship to Limsa. Yur put his skills to the max as the lead designer of the house, and with a fairly interesting idea for the theme, Yur created the abode that the group lives in now.

Recent Times

Nowadays, Yur serves as a barkeep in his own bar he constructed: The Reticent Recluse. The bar currently resides in the house that the company uses known only as a "Fortuitous Respite" by those who've stayed within its walls. Gone are the days where Yur would actively seek to provide information to those who sought it with money. Yur lives freely doing what he likes to do best, helping those who need it. Recently, he finds himself spending most days aloof inside the Quicksand in Ul'dah. Not sure himself why he does so, he probably values the amount of foot traffic that graces its walls.

  • Eiai Airi

    Short. Foul mouthed. And one who's always a good sport when it comes to his jokes. (Most of the time.) Eiai hired Yur many moons ago to help her gather information at her behest. He likes to think he did a good job as she keeps coming around to speak with him.

  • Aiza Epocan

    The owner of a company, and one of Yur's good friends from a long time ago. He's forever linked to her company due to being the one that offered a generation donation to her so she could acquire a base for her company's operations.

  • Ashen Kit

    A once distant mercenary Miqo'te Yur happened upon during an oft vigil in Pearl Lane. Getting to know her, they dated for a short time before they called it off so that she could deal with personal issues. He still cares deeply for her well-being, and hopes she reaches out to him at some point once more.

  • Sabrinn Beggiens

    A fellow Keeper who consistently peppers Yur with requests to spar daily. Although he loses his fair share, the time he spends unwinding with her company in his bar is some of the most precious time he has lately. The two can most often be spotted sparring in Central Thanalan.

  • Unknown Mother

    Yur's birth mother who he never really got to know. He's not even aware of if she's alive or not. He doesn't hold a grudge against her for giving him up. He figures she had her reasons.

  • Mhyles Prowa

    Yur's only known actual family who he recently discovered he had. Mhy as he calls her is someone he actively tries to avoid being together with in public. He would tell others it's for her sake that he does it, as he doesn't want to potentially bring harm to her via outside parties coming after him for one reason or another.

RP Hooks

  • The Color Blue

    This is a good way to get his attention, a mutual respect for the color Blue. In fact one could possibly find out the reasoning why Yur likes the color blue, and even then a bond of camaraderie would be formed regardless.

  • Need a hand?

    If someone finds themselves in need of a hand or some protection from certain individuals, feel free to approach the blue fella. Yur absolutely loves the chance to help those who need it. If he takes a liking to you, he may even sometimes offer full time bodyguard services at no charge if he feels the need to keep vigil around a trouble prone person.

  • Drinks

    As a barkeep, there's nothing Yur enjoys more than meeting a friend for a drink. Heck, even a stranger would be preferable when a friend isn't readily available. Yur enjoys the company of others despite how he may be perceived.

Player Info

Hello! I'm pretty much available most of the time for RP. You can literally find Yur sitting on the back wall in the Quicksand. I tend to respond rather quickly when prompted with a tell or walk up RP, and I can pretty much adapt to any style preferred by you. I usually am in RP mode all the time regardless of if the "RP" tag is on or not. So no need to worry about if I am IC or not.

My Policies

  • Real Life

    Sometimes things happen. If they do, I'll try to let you know if I have to duck away for a bit rather than just vanish without a word. In the event I do poof suddenly, it does by no means mean that it's because I found anything boring or undesirable.

  • Courtesy

    Sometimes, I won't be able to RP with you due to made plans either ingame or IRL. I would appreciate if I wasn't lambasted for such things. I try to get around to any and all who wish to RP, but sometimes I simply can't. So by all means, if it feels like I'm dogging you please let me know. And please, if it's not too much trouble, try to be a bit understanding if I suddenly blank out and it looks like I ignored you. I do my best to make sure I don't skip out on people purposely.

  • Literacy

    Not really a huge issue for me. But sometimes, if I can't read what you wrote I have a hard time responding properly to what was said. This is not meant as a knock, but more along the lines of "If I can't read it, I'm sorry." So by no means is any offense meant when I ask you to clarify what was said. x.x
