Ok, I'll give this a try because I'm excited about this game. Heehee writing this was fun, Ive always wanted to do a history of a character in FFXI so I will do it for FFXIV!
What race will you be? With what characteristics will you customize your character? Where will you live? What discipline will you follow and within which of its classes will you start?
Limsa Lominsa is where I am from, my name is Siosai and I am a young Miqo’te, only in my twenty-third year. My grandmother was of the diurnal Seekers of the Sun and was being trained in the ways of the Healer; my grandfather was a hunter of the village. When she was still newly pregnant my grandfather perished in a hunting accident… my grandmother, in despair, left the village and began to wander. It was a few moons later that she found a home within Limsa Lominsa, having my mother. She went on to teach young children within the city the ways of the Healer while running a small inn near the port.
My mother was only five when an Elezen came to the city, worn down by many battles that he had partaken in. Grandmother said she instantly took to him, giving him a place to stay within her home. Wanting to leave the path of the warrior behind and find peace in his life, he took a job as an apprentice shipbuilder. It was less than a year later that they wed, and he took my mother on as his own daughter.
As my mother grew she wanted to see the homeland my grandmother had left behind, and at fifteen she made her way across the lands to see it. There she met a young Miqo’te warrior who took her in while she stayed in the village. They grew close, and when she told him that she would depart that week to return home to her city he decided to follow her. Upon return to Limsa Lominsa they married and I was born shortly after, with a younger brother to follow just a few years later.
I am on the shorter side, taking after my mother, with pale gray hair that falls to the middle of my back. I usually keep it pulled back in a bun, braids wrapped around the outside of it. I have soft honey-milk skin, and my father says my eyes are like the clear blue skies that lie above us. I usually wear looser, light clothes, not liking to be restricted as I wander the country on my journeys.
I am not one who stays to one path and my mother and grandmother knew this. I was taught the ways of the healer from them, the white magic that would aid me when needed. My father taught me the way of the hunter so I would never go hungry on my journeys. My grandfather taught me the way of the fighter, knowing that with this knowledge I would always be safe in battle. My true path is of the Healer, above all wanting to protect my friends and family… but I know I’ll always be safe on my own because of my families teaching.
Although I wander throughout the land, not contented to stay in one place forever… I always return home to my family, to Limsa Lominsa to the ocean I love and the sweet smell of the salty air that brings a smile to my face and a twitch to my nose. It is my true home. Edited, Aug 7th 2009 10:03pm by YfandesofBismarck
