Ok, I'm really dying to know answers to these 2 questions. They are cooking in my mind for quite some time already. So I guess I'm willing to take the risk of been defaulted to oblivion just to get the answers

1) Ok so the story goes that the ancestors of the Miqo'te made their way to Eorzea during the Age of Endless Frost, traversing the frozen seas in pursuit of the wildlife, blah..blah..blah.. So basically they are predators in the early days. Question is, are Lalafells a basic part of Miqo'te diet?

2) On average, how many times a Miqo'te gets their tail stepped on during crafting?

(>...>

Answers are appreciated

Certainly. Cloe tells me she likes them roasted.

**** hath no fury like a catwoman scorned. No one dared step on Cloe's tail, yet.

Lalafells actually have complete domination over Miqo'te.

In first War of the Cat Lalafell botonists and alchemist discovered the secret of Miqo'te Maddening Potions and Super Absorbant Kitty Litter +8. The Maddening Potions common name is Catnip Extract. Apparently Lalafell tears of laughter is a key ingredient in the potion.

The second War of the Cat took place when the two tribes of Lalafell fought a battle over exclusive rights of distribution. The two tribes accidently dumped a years supply of Maddening Potions on the Litter that needed recycling. The cleaned up version in the history books just state that both tribes swore eternal peace afterwards. The culinary guild's annual cookie tossing party is in rememberence of these dark times.

The third War of the Cat was attempted overthrow of the Lalafell overlords. The hypnotic swaying of the lalafells ended the war before it started along with certain other discoveries.

The free people of the world have since pasted the Lalafell too cute act banning more that 20 lalafells from sitting down in a 10 yalm radius.

That's so far in the past that many might have forgotten. However.
It depends how you cook them. Some even like them raw but that's kinda barbaric. Some time ago I asked Lyngasth Doesfalksyn, the culinarian guild chef, how he'd prepare a Lalafel. He asked me how I could even think about something like that, but after a few glasses wine and some bottles more he came up with something very tasty.
I've already asked several Lalafel if they would assist me with a new revolutionary cooking reciepe but they only told me that they don't like the expression on my face and ran away.
If I'd just know what they mean...these little, soft, meaty, tasty,...I'm getting hungry...

I usually craft with a wall or something else in my back to prevent that.
But one time there was this Roegadyn...big, ugly face, not taking notice about his surroundings and not even noticing the delicate young Miqo'te trying to trim some expensive high quality leather for a pair of new boots. I cut the leather in half when that brute stepped on my tail.

I am Lalafell, so I can only really answer number 1, though I really shouldn't as it is something we generally prefer not to discuss.


Miqo'te do not eat Lalafell, though their primitive ancestors might have liked too. When Lalafell first encountered the Miqo'te they where only a small semblance of what you know (and often love) today. There where both Male and Female Miqo'te and both sexes where extremely primitive and violent with limited ability to communicate among them selves, let alone with us Lalafell. They only used the most primitive of tools, mostly crude spears and blunt clubs.

Unfortunately, the males where extremely violent and territorial to other races. At first, it caused us little problem as our mages and advanced knowledge of the sciences such as alchemy and metallurgy where all we really needed to protect ourselves from these primitives. The true problem, as you alluded to, is their food supply. As a hunter/gather tribal species, they had no real ability at creating a sustainable food source for themselves, nor the ability to learn the necessary skills. Eventually we realized, a little too late, that their fast reproductive rates, females at the time where observed to have up to 8 offspring in a liter, and fierce physical abilities, they would eventually over run us despite our advanced skills. This became more and more apparent as their food sources dwindled. They also had a large impact on our own ability to maintain our own crops and farms as they fiercely began raiding for food.

Around this time, I wont go into detail on to how this particular "research" began, a Lalafell scientist discovered that Lalafell and the Miqo'te where genetically compatible mates. Further more, female offspring of a Male Lalafell and Female Miqo'te mating where born with vastly superior intellect and a much more "tame" disposition, though they could still be somewhat fierce compared to Lalafell or Hyrul females. These results where very surprising, but unfortunately male Miqo'te/Lalafell offspring did not receive what ever genetic gift the new breed of female Miqo'te where being gifted with, despite our courageous females best efforts to mate with these beast. Testing indicated it would be highly unlikely any of the "new breed" of female Miqo'te would ever be able to produce a "tame" male Miqo'te and we did not have the time needed to wait until they matured to adulthood for further testing.

Not long after the first confirmations of the cross-breeding research results a Council of Male Lalafell voted to enforce a population control measure on the primitive tribes of Miqo'te through the introduction of a biological agent our best government Alchemist determined would drastically reduce the Miqo'te reproductive rate by limiting them to one offspring per reproductive cycle. Unfortunately... there was a unforeseen outcome after this agent spread through the Miqo'te population, which now included some dozens of "new breed" Miqo'te... After the introduction of the population control measures, all Miqo'te offspring where born female.

Eventually the Male Migo'te went extinct and only females remained. Not long after the males died out, the last generation of primitive female Miqo'te also died out. Over time, the issue of the blunder with the population control would grow into one of the biggest Lalafell conspiracy theories and a source of shame to most of our race. In the modern day, this history is hardly ever discussed, even amongst ourselves, though not necessarily a secret either.

All Miqo'te today are the offspring of a Male Lalafell and to this day, all offspring are female. As a result, over the years it has become traditional for some Lalafell males to take a Miqo'te concubine or if he is particularly affluent; a harem of Miqo'te concubines, though we generally only marry other Lalafell. Concubines typically live independently and always raise their offspring without assistance from males, they insist on it, a carryover of their fierce and territorial maternal instincts to protect their young. When young Miqo'te come of age, they will seek out Male Lalafell suitors to bind them selves too, typically seeking out the largest dowry in exchange for a three to five year commitment.

You had your doubts??? We pioneered Thaumaturgey, most of the darker magics, and Alchemy. The devil is all about presentation, and loves to wrap his gifts in pretty packaging!

Luckily, most of us no longer practice the darkest of the dark arts and prefer to leave the past in the past. Move onward and upward, as we like to say! Of course, this saying may be popular more because of our stature than our progression through the centuries changes in civilized society.

Why don't Miqo'te's tails flip-flop when sitting and crafting? So little secondary animation for those tails is disappointing!
