Q u i o
(Quio, pronounced Kyo, or Key-yo)

A p p e a r a n c e

R a c e Yludih
F u l l N a m e Quiome (pronounced Key-yo-may), meaning 'Of Eternity' (named for his father Quaome (Kay-yo-may), also 'Of Eternity')
O t h e r T i t l e s Quio (a nickname); Eloquoi* (pronounced Ehl-oh-koi), a family-given title, essentially indicating the last born child); Ruq Qy'ihadi (pronounced Rook Key-ih-ha-dee, a Biqaj alias); Iaan Krome (a second, Rymere-specific, alias); Earnest Freeman (Quio's 'mercenary' alias, picked up in Rynmere)
G e n d e r Male
B i r t h d a t e 18th of Cylus, Arc 694
B i r t h p l a c e Outside the walls of Ne'haer

*The Eloquoi
The Eloquoi is an 'Ome--' family tradition, a self-proclaimed duty passed down from one generation to the next. Started a few generations before on his father's side, it was a title earned from desperation. His father's great-ancestor had been born the child of a defector, one who had done a part in committing the greatest atrocity known to the Yludih people. Thus, he was looking for redemption for his family line.

In the end it all came down to sacrifice: he and his children and his children's children would act as humble purveyors of knowledge. While it is a Yludih's goal to learn the humanoid races and end up immortalized in Uleuda, it fell to their cursed family to learn the opposite: the animals. Each of the great-ancestor's five children would select a world biome and begin their study; the sixth child, named the Eloquoi, would compile as much of the other children's knowledge as he could, along with a knowledge of all the humanoid races, and would ascend to Uleuda as a teacher, spreading his wealth.

In this way the majority of the family line was punished for their prior wrongdoing, as most of the children would not be allowed to ascend; the last would be a servant forever to the whole of the Yludih race. Quio's great-ancestor believed that amassing such knowledge would be a benefit to the Yludih, as they could rely on the Eloquoi as a teacher to make learning animal forms easier. Having one --or many-- animal forms was necessary, he thought, for their races' survival.


Scars and Injuries
Note: Most if not all of Quio's scars tend to show up on his original human form, not his Biqaj form, no matter which form received the injury. Those that show up on the other, or both, will be noted.

Winter, Arc 705 PERMANENT Quio is attacked and wounded with a knife. A long line is dragged along his side, from a point in his back to under his ribs. The wound is through only the skin, but receives no proper medical attention and leaves an ugly scar.
Image

16th of Saun, Arc 716 Quio is gut-punched by Dumont, a crooked docks guard. His stomach is sore for a day.

1st of Vhalar, Arc 716 Quio is wounded on his leg, his right calf, when a shadowbeast bites into him. It will take 12 trials to fully heal.

15th of Vhalar, Arc 716 PERMANENT Forced into a rage, Quio attacks his shipmates and earns a sickle-shaped burn on his arm. Along with myriad small bruises and cuts, any injuries earned during this time will heal within 15 days. However, due to the psychological nature of the burn, a vivid scar of the injury will appear on Quio's right shoulder in his born human form.
Image

31st of Vhalar, Arc 716 A creditor sends a mercenary after Hart and Quio takes the beating in his place; Quio is battered and bruised and will be in considerable pain for the next 4 - 5 trials. This will fade over the following 8 - 10 trials.

10th of Ymiden, Arc 717 PERMANENT Held as a captive by men who hate him, Quio's right ring and pinky fingers are amputated with shears. Throughtout his captivity (into early Saun 717), it is assumed he suffers various forms of torture, though no other amputations.
Image

1st of Saun, Arc 717 PERMANENT Remaining a captive, Quio is seriously injured when one of the men take an axe to his unconscious form, hitting him in the shoulder and cleaving through his collarbone. Though hit only once or twice, the damage is deep and brutual, and the seriousness and position of the injury is enough to greatly weaken him, potentially threatening his life. Recovering from this injury will take at least the rest of Saun into Vhalar, and perhaps longer depending on healthcare and setbacks.
Image

6th of Saun, Arc 717 Ingestion of lantern oil and sea water has caused moderate/severe irritation of Quio's mouth, tongue, and throat. These injuries are visible and will heal slowly. His mouth and throat are burned and he has temporarily damaged his voice. Due to his circumstances, he's at risk of further dehydration/malnourishment, exhaustion, etc. He has lost a lot of weight during his captivity and does not have a lot of energy.

9th of Saun, Arc 717 Quio further damages his already-damaged voice by yelling and screaming. He loses his voice for a few days, and will continue to be hoarse and sore for more after that. He also takes out old stitches using a stone knife and his teeth. The wounds bleed a little but do not reopen, and will take a handful of trials to heal. The wounds will remain sore during that time.

Quio is typical of all Yludih in form, with a crystalline build and bulk. He is relatively thin and tall for his species, and tends to envision the 'feel' of his being --his reflective crystal-- as made up of clear-white, red, and golden, like sunstone or rutilated quartz. In reality he is still young yet to have developed any true color at all.

UPDATE: As of Ymiden 717, Quio has started to develop some lasting color in his crystal; by Saun 717, how he envisions the 'feel' of his crystal has changed. No longer does he think of his crystal in terms of sunstone or rutilated quartz, all shining red and gold; instead, the colors he's taken on are bruise-like, purples and browns, though there are parts of him flecked in bloody red.

Quio's born human form is that of a tall, gangly young man with pale, red-gold hair, a light smattering of freckles, and crisp greyish eyes. When he projects his chosen form, whether human or (eventually) animal, he tends to rely on a red and gold color palette, sometimes washing into browns and greys. Due to his unique upbringing, first as a Yludih in the wilds and then as a Biqaj, he has little sense of body modesty and is not afraid of showing skin. Even in nudity, however, he will always, always wear a braided necklace displaying a sunstone, a symbol of his lost love. And even when he presents as a human, he dresses Biqaj and speaks Rakahi.

Quio's second human form is that of a man in his mid thirties, dark of hair and eyes. Unlike his other forms, which Quio created from instinct or trial and error, this form first belonged to a real person: a man named Earnest Freeman who worked --and perhaps still works-- at the Fighting Pits in Andaris, Rynmere. When Quio seeks to do something unlawful, Earnest is the form he usually chooses.

Earnest Freeman is shorter but built more strongly than either of the Yludih's first two forms, with a thicker neck, arms, legs, and trunk. With muscle designed for use rather than beauty, Earnest's form gives the impression of a strong man and hard worker; he's a man of intimidation, judging by the old lines of anger upon his face and the countless other scars, large and small, which marr his body. While he has many scars, the most telling of these are a slice against the side of his neck, and a small, sword-shaped brand just under the far corner of his right eye, proclaiming him a freed slave.

Compared to his first two forms, the form of Earnest Freeman seems altogether more dark, competent, and dangerous.

Quio's Biqaj form was originally intended to be a backup plan, used occasionally as Quio saw fit. However, he soon found himself using it more and more, and eventually adopted it as his dominant form. Somehow when he's in this form he seems more comfortable, more happy, perhaps because his promised one, Hart, loved the form and had a hand in designing it. Contributions such as 'longer hair', 'tanner skin', and 'smile!' were well listened to, despite some of the requests violating his usual color scheme. Shorter and more solid on his feet in this form than in his born human shape, Quio finds it's great for living on a ship, especially during high seas.

R a c i a l A b i l i t i e s Has color-changing eyes and slightly pointed ears. A true Biqaj's blood is silver, and so in this form Quio's false blood runs silver too. Every once and a while, under the moon, this form seems to glow with a faint silver light.

E m o t i o n C o l or C h a r t In Biqaj form, Quio's eyes perform the same color-changing tricks that natural-born Biqaj display. When not experiencing any particular emotion, his eyes remain a warm brown.

EYE COLOR EMOTION
matte black cold focus/intent
brown base eye color/default
dark red confusion
light red turmoil
dark purple pain, hurt
light purple determination, perseverance
dark pink friendship, warmth, desire
light pink love
silver-white fear, anger
silver-tinted extreme negative emotions
flat grey tiredness, exhaustion, apathy
gold-tinted extreme positive emotions

light green other desire, envy

C h a r a c t e r C o n c e p t

P e r s o n a l i t y :

A w k w a r d
The standout characteristic of Quio's personality is his awkwardness. He has lived a very sheltered life not once but twice, first with his mother in the wilds, then with his Biqaj family. The people he feels comfortable around could be counted on his hands. In everyday interactions, he tends to speak too quietly and uncertainly for someone who could otherwise pass as Biqaj, and has been told he has an eerie stare.

F r i e n d l y
Underneath the layers of awkwardness lies a friendly core, and something of a bleeding heart. Living the second half of his short life on a ship full of the kindest, most open-hearted people, he has developed something of an appreciation for all types. He is willing to help anyone in need if able, despite the bad things that have happened to him often by stangers' hands.

C u r i o u s
Quio is interested in all things human and animal, through a mixture of natural curiosity and outside pressure.

D a r i n g , o r F o o l h a r d y
Despite having learned the cruelty of the world while young and then again later on, this Yludih retains a readiness to overlook or underestimate danger. He sometimes doesn't realize his own oddness, or that people might perceive him to be out of place. He bumbles through social interactions and tends to be too honest, a dangerous trait for one of his kind. Because Quio has been tempered by fear and loss but also by great kindness, he is unwary for a Yludih, more neutral towards the sentient races than fearful or careful, which has already gotten him into serious trouble.

A n g r y
Within Quio is a hurt, a rawness that has been buried deep within him for many arcs, untouched since the terrible events of his childhood. This anger --which at times feels uncontrollable to him-- causes him to act out in unpredictable or uncharacteristic ways.


B e h a v i o r :

Quio does not have many behavioral ticks, though in general he is much more awkward in cities than on a ship or in the wilds. To strangers he comes off as a rather odd, subdued Biqaj, crude in sociality for one of that race.

---

1 8 th of C y l u s , 6 9 4 Quio is born the sixth child to his father, the first to his mother. Despite being only a half-sibling to the rest of the family, he is named for his father and is looked to as the Eloquoi (meaning last born), a successor of knowledge.

He is born in the wilds between Treth and Ne'haer and throughout his childhood arcs is encouraged to study animals and to understand nature. He lives only with his mother and is kept isolated from society, much as his siblings before him. It is the way of their family. It is their father's duty.

3 3 rd of Y m i d e n , 7 0 0 As a child, Quio first arises to the Uleuda. This date is commemorated as a second birthday; in his family, it is more important than the day of birth. He promptly begins his studies with his siblings under the careful proctorship of his father and many other teachers.

H o t C y c l e , 7 0 0 Quio begins examining the ways of animals in earnest. The coyote is his favorite animal, and so they focus primarily on canines. His mother uses her wolf form, and though he is a boy they live purely as animals for much of the next few arcs, exempting in the winter. This is how they study.

H o t C y c l e , 7 0 4 Quio is allowed to enter the city for the first time in his life. His mother is not allowed to come on the trip; earlier she had an argument with his father. He spends the day with his father and a couple of his elder siblings. They watch people. His father lets him play with other children, real children. 'Learn them,' he is told. Quio has never known a friend but he finds after some hesitance that he makes them easily. He dazzles the other children, quite literally. His father catches him projecting rainbow colors of light for a little girl, awing her, and then he is in trouble. He is not allowed back in the city. He returns home and his mother wraps him in her arms. His parents have another shouting match.

The boy weeps that night from sadness. Before, with just his mother, he had been content. But now he keeps thinking of all the people. Their different faces. Their smiles.

C o l d C y c l e , 7 0 5 He goes back to the city with his mother for some errands after much begging and pleading. There he meets the little rainbow girl again, but she runs away from him. He thinks she must not remember him. On the way home someone tries to follow them. But it is cold and there is a storm and they make it home in peace. His mother leaves the lights out that night, and they cuddle together for warmth.

C o l d C y c l e , 7 0 5 The men have come from the city. His mother tries talking to them. But something is wrong. They grab his mother and there's a knife. She's hurt. She screams in their native tones for him to run! They're doing horrible things. One of them descends upon him and hits him when he tries to help her. He's not certain what's happening and he seems to blur through chunks of it; he blinks and suddenly he is stumbling through the forest, a man with a knife at his back. He realizes he needs to run! like his mother had told him, and he does, in the process getting slashed deeply by the man. The man gives chase through the woods. But these are Quio's woods and eventually he loses him. Later, when he's hidden, he smells smoke. After the sound of their voices fades, he goes back to the house. It's burning up, gone. His mother is gone too. He's afraid to go to the city. He stays and waits for her for many, many days but she never comes back.

R e b i r t h C y c l e , 7 0 6 There's someone in the woods and the boy is weak from hunger. At first he hides because he is afraid that it is the men again, hunting him. But it's just another boy, digging for rocks, shining them, putting them in his pockets. Quio watches him throughout the day. He can't help but watch. He is in love with that face. He has not seen faces, smiling faces, in so long.

The boy has food and Quio sneaks out to try and steal it when the boy wanders away. But the boy is waiting and Quio whirls on him, about to attack. He stops; he realizes that the boy does not want to hurt him. They talk. The beautiful one smiles at him, and they eat, and they search for rocks together.

The sun is fading and they walk towards the city, but Quio balks. Afraid. He is so afraid. He tells the boy that he has no home, that he is not welcome. They wait until night and sneak to the water, where there is a large boat. The beautiful one calls it Andresmarie. This is the beautiful boy's home. Quio is fed and clothed. When the boat leaves in a week, he remains on it. It is his new home.

3 3 rd of Y m i d e n , 7 0 9 He tells the boy what he is and expects to be thrown to the currents. But they are friends. And Hart is beautiful. And he accepts Quio.

S a u n , 7 1 0 It is a big night. Hart and Quio grip hands and stand in front of their family. There is a great reveal, two, followed by even greater silence. The boys are prepared: packed and ready to leave if necessary. Quio trembles, thinking that he has lost a second home. But there is nothing to fear. Quio is accepted doubly by these kind people. 'You are our son.' They swear to keep his secret. And they have no prejudice against two boys in love.

Arcs pass and they are good arcs, full of open skies and freedom and Hart. During this time Quio creates a second humanoid form, one of a Biqaj, to match his beautiful boy.


H i s t o r y C o n t i n u e d

P o s t - C r e a t i o n :

S a u n , 7 1 6 Quio and his promised one Hart come to Andaris in their little sloop, the Jovy Akor. They discover the kingdom of Rynmere is on the verge of a civil war and though Quio wants to leave, to just sail away on their ship, Hart convinces him that it's safer to stay.

It is not. Throughout the remainder of the season Quio is hurt, loses his ship, is attacked by monsters called shadowbeasts, is separated from Hart, and is ultimately forced to kill to survive. Worse yet, after the civil war a newer, greater war arises: the immortals' war.

V h a l a r , 7 1 6 The shadowbeasts continue to attack and Quio, having been left trapped outside of the city for some 20 days, finally comes back to Andaris when the gates reopen, hoping to find Hart. But before he can he meets an immortal on the streets, U'frek, who tells him to follow-- and Quio does. With U'frek and other champions of the immortals Quio is whisked away on a ship, The Humble Son, to Ne'haer-- but along the way something terrible happens, completely crippling Quio's sense of self. The ship is attacked and Quio, unbeknownst to him, is targeted by a pair of evil immortals called Kata and Mastes; Kata turns him into a giant shadowbeast, full of rage, and Quio is forced to attack his shipmates in a haze of bloodlust.

When the fight is over and Quio turns back he no longer trusts himself. He is willingly taken to the brig and held captive for the rest of the journey, though U'frek stops by to give him a special gift, two pearl seashells that can be used to communicate through far distances.

Once at Ne'haer the champions from Rynmere find the city is a warzone, buildings completely demolished, people hurt, and everything on fire. Quio does his best to help them despite his history with Ne'haer, but eventually an army of Aukari come, setting everything once more alight, and Quio and the others escape through a portal to the final site of the war: a field of ice, Oscillus, where the champions must fight to recover Treid's heart.

Quio joins the battle towards the tomb and loses himself again in the chaos. The fight plays out, insanity ensues, and the evil immortals are finally defeated but not before many losses on both sides. For his efforts Quio is blessed by Qylios. Then he and the others are sent home.

After the war, Quio remains plagued by uncertainty, self-hate, and self-doubt. This culminates in him breaking down and revealing his true identity as a Yludih to a group of people --Tristan, Faith, Elyna-- at a ball commemorating the war, which as a Yludih is an act of self-harm.

Z i ' d a , 7 1 6 - C y l u s , 7 1 7 For the next two seasons, Quio falls further and further into a depression. He spends little time with the people he loves and isolates himself, hyperfocusing on a task given to him at work: to make a case to save a man and his son, Vernon and Derek Smith, from the Fighting Pits.

A s h a n , 7 1 7 In Ashan, 717 Quio finally snaps. He realizes he wants --no, needs-- to go to Ne'haer, the place his mother was killed which he visited during the war; he needs to find the men who hurt his mother, but he also feels he cannot leave until he finishes his job. In a burst of criminal activity, he stakes out the Fighting Pits and traps a man who works there, Earnest Freeman, along with his family. Armed with Earnest's face --having taken the time to steal it-- and the information about the Pits the man had given, Quio breaks into the Fighting Pits and ultimately ends up freeing Vernon and Derek, committing many crimes along the way and burning his Rynmere identity Iaan Krome-- but it seems he's too late, as Derek has already been grievously wounded in a fight.

Still, Quio takes the freed man and son on his ship, the Blackheart, and sails west towards Warrick, hoping to drop them off there. However, Derek dies before they can get him home and soon after Quio is told by his sister Yanaqi that in a fit of jealousy and anger she had killed Hart, Quio's promised one.

In a state of advanced depression, Quio drops Vernon off in Warrick, buries Derek, and then sets sail with Yanaqi towards Ne'haer.

Late in the season Quio arrives in Ne'haer and quickly seeks out the men who wronged him. He finds one, sparing the man's life in exchange for information on the others, which leads him to Treth, where he finds another-- a man named Tedrik, one of the worst of the bunch. In Treth Quio confronts Tedrik but ultimately lets him go, feeling that killing these men is not the answer-- only for the men to turn on him some fifteen days later, and ambush him as he's finally trying to come to terms with all that has happened. Quio is shot through with arrows and beaten unconscious, and along with a Treth girl, Tei'serin, is taken hostage by the men who wish to do them both harm.

Y m i d e n , 7 1 7 After being taken captive by the men, who have no intention of ever letting him go and indeed wish to torture and kill him, Quio finds himself taking refuge in Uleuda. He's lost for a long time in his thoughts and when he emerges he begins, once again, to isolate himself from others. The men do awful things to him when he's awake in a quest to discover the Yludih's bodily secrets
--like amputating some of his fingers-- and so Quio spends most of his time in Uleuda. There he is given a guard by some of the Ancients, who fear that under duress he may turn traitor and spill their race's secrets. If he does, his guard will have no choice but to kill him.

S a u n, 7 1 7 By this time a pattern of behavior has emerged, and Quio follows it to a t. Self-isolation and depression turn once again to vengeance, and Quio snaps once more. This time, he is certain he will kill the men who have tortured him; he has lost his compassion for those fleshlings who do harm.

A r t i f a c t :
Quio's artifact is a sunstone wrapped in braided string, intended to be worn as a necklace (worth 15 gn). He also has a complementary piece: a peach moonstone wrapped in string in the same manner. This he never removes, no matter what form he's in.

Note: The moonstone necklace is not a part of the artifact, and thus has been deducted from Quio's ledger.

HOUSING : SP Description: A one-masted sailing sloop (boat) with a mainsail and jib rigged fore and aft. The sloop has a small hold and living quarters under the deck, enough room for a single bed, table or small writing desk, chair, storage chest, and shelf.

UPDATE: As of the 16th of Saun, Arc 716 the Jovy Akor was stolen and replaced by a repurposed pirate vessel, named by its previous owner the Blackheart.

The Jovy Akor
Image

The Jovy Akor is a small, happy, one-to-two person sailboat with typical cream sails and a nice navy finish. Purchased secondhand and in poor condition as a rite of passage for Hart Qy'ihadi by his family, it took dedication to bring it back to seafaring shape. From the time they completed the rite of passage to the time they ended up in Rynmere, Hart and Quio manned the restored ship together as they sailed with their small family fleet, conducting business.

Now refurbished and kept in loving condition, The Jovy Akor hosts a sleek and shining deck complete with storage hatch. Underneath the deck lies a cramped, cozy set of living quarters. These quarters include a single bed (set into a shelved alcove), and a converted kitchen-type area. In the makeshift kitchen, a small trunk doubles as storage and a table, with two sacks of grain serving as cushions. Cups, a pot and pan, a cooking lantern, and other items (like tea and salt) hang from hooks or in bags on the kitchen-side wall.

The back third of the hold houses the leftover storage area. This space has been utilized to its very capacity, with a hammock rolled and tied to the ceiling (lowered as needed), a built-in storage cabinet pressed on the right side of the hull, and a pair of buckets on the left, leaving a small bit of open floor space. The open space has been lined with a tarp, strawed, and gated off with a small fishing net, acting as a pen for a trio of fluffy chickens.

The Blackheart
Image

The Blackheart is an excellent ship. It is, though Hart would have never admitted it, a serious step up in terms of room, quality, and maneuverability from the Akor. Requiring anywhere from two to six to crew her and holding up to ten passengers, the Blackheart is a much more complex vessel, and also extremely beautiful.

Above deck, the Heart hosts two masts, under-deck storage, and a luxurious cockpit, complete with extra living room; below, twelve separate bunks are able to fold out from the walls, with six more comfortable primary beds on the port side and six less comfortable secondary ones on the starboard. In these quarters, the Biqaj have set up everything quite similarly to how it was in the Akor, though the ship has a proper kitchen area with table, countertop, and sink. In the Blackheart there is much more storage, though most of that room is usually left empty, leaving a larger space for the chickens to roam.

CELARION : 
Image
Celarion is the Mark of Qylios, granted to Quio after the war with shadowbeasts and the Battle at Treidhart in Vhalar of 716. Though Quio doesn't remember recieving the mark except as a blur of exhaustion and a glimpse of shining light, he was granted this blessing just after the battle was won by the side of mortals, before he was wearily sent home to rest.

Manifesting as either one, three, or five bands of glowing light around the Blessed's forearm (depending on the level granted), the mark of Celarion can be adjusted in color and brightness to suit the person who wears it. However, the mark can not be made completely invisible, nor can it reach a brightness greater than that of simple candlelight.

While not a follower of Qylios when given this mark, Quio would spend a couple seasons after the war lost within the dark of winter before beginning life anew in spring, gone in Ashan of 717 on a journey to discover who he is at heart. As a being of Uleuda, a creature inherent of light and battle, Quio most definitely falls into Qylios' domains of Bonds, Leadership, Light, and Courage, though he may not see those things in himself. Nonetheless, the groundwork for him to become a true follower was laid within the immortals' war, when, despite his shortcomings and pitfalls, Quio did his best to fight for what he thought was good and right.
DEVOTION : Though he doesn't yet have a true relationship with Qylios herself, Quio and the immortal share some similarities. Both somewhat estranged from certain members of their family and both with a love of travel, it would be easy for Quio to identify with the immortal of Light. In the Uleuda, Quio becomes his truest self physically: a person made of crystal whose blood is composed only of light. There in the homeland of his people Quio has had his ups and downs, his training and failures and battles with the dark. Perhaps it will be within Uleuda, then, that he might find a use for Qylios' guiding light.
ABILITIES & KNOWLEDGE : A b i l i t i e s :
NAME QUEST ACQUIRED DESCRIPTION
Bond (minor) N/A The Favored can Bond with 1 other person. In doing so the Bonded individual gains a single glowing band around their left forearm. The Bond remains as long as both the Favored and the Bonded allow it. The Bond only functions within 300 feet of the Favored, and dissipates shortly beyond that distance.
Illustrious Skills N/A Add an extra three skill points to one of the following skills: Blades, Leadership, Discipline, or Endurance. Any skill points granted by this Mark can break the 100 point cap on skills.
Bound in Battle N/A The Favored and those Bonded with them are better able to fight together. Their tactics and movements flow almost seamlessly with little-to-no spoken communication. The Bond passes insights and slight thoughts between those Bonded while in combat together.

K n o w l e d g e :
  1. Celarion: Can glow in a variety of colors and levels of brightness
  2. Celarion: Cannot be made completely invisible
  3. Celarion: Lets the bonded move and work together without speaking
  4. Celarion: Lets the bonded share simple insight
  5. Celarion: The glow of the mark may reveal your position to the enemy

YANAQI : 
Image
F u l l N a m e Yanaqi (pronounced Yah-nah-key, meaning 'One Truth')
O t h e r T i t l e s Fara (an assumed human alias)
R a c e Yludih
G e n d e r Female
B i r t h d a t e 1st of Ymiden, Arc 692
H e i g h t 5' 11"
W e i g h t 170 lbs
S k i l l s Field Craft 26, Deception 25, Hunting 24, Trap Making 15, Stealth 10
R e l a t i o n s h i p In their childhood Quio and Yanaqi had been close, and despite Quio being a half-sibling, Yana had been closer to him than to any of her other brothers. Seeing each other was a treat, as Quio lived alone with his mother, and Yana with her eldest brother. Their father was their common link, bringing Yana to visit every once and a while, perhaps six times an arc.

After the death of Quio's mother, he fled the life his father had prepared for him in favor of a life with the Biqaj. When he did this, he cut off all ties with his family and even with the Uleuda itself. For many years he was presumed dead by his Yludih family; that is, until recently when by accident he connected with the Uleuda in his sleep.

Meeting again (in Saun of Arc 716) after not seeing each other for more than ten years, Quio finds that his sister is not who she once was. Now she parrots the old teachings of their father, acting as an antagonist, pushing him to give up the life he now has to resume his old life of isolation and study. She looks at him with resentment, believing that he has been shirking his duty to their family for many, many years.

Update: As of Ashan, 717, Quio believes Yanaqi to have killed his promised one, Hart. As such, he views Yanaqi as a murderer and harbors deep feelings of hate and grief which revolve around her involvement in his life. And yet... she is one of the only people he knows he can rely upon.

P e rs o n a l i t y Yana, or Fara as she is now called, is hard-working, dedicated, and ruthless, doing what she needs to survive, driven towards accomplishing the goals her father set out for her. When she was young she was like any girl, sweet, naive. Now that she is grown she has sharpened and become loyal only to her family and people. As Quio has forsaken the place of honor that their father left to him, she finds it her duty to reclaim his attentions using whatever means necessary. She is not above fighting dirty; in fact, that's the only way she fights. When she has a goal there is no distracting her from it: she will get what she needs, in her mind there is no other option.

Make no mistake, Fara is a predator and predator alone. Under a biting smile hides feral teeth.

H i s t o r y After Quio left the family, their father wrongly assumed that his youngest son had been slaughtered along with his mother, their corpses burned away. Suddenly the family was incomplete, and Quaome felt it was too late to beget another child. The title of Eloquoi, once Quio's, was thrust upon Yana.

It did not sit easily.

The Eloquoi was the recipient of knowledge, and Yana was years late in her practice. She had not been learning the races as the Eloquoi was wont to do, and had only been learning animals of one biome. Suddenly she had the immense task of mastering all the humanoid races, as many of the animals in her biome as she could learn, as well as the animals that her four elder brothers had been learning.

It took much discipline and punishment to conform her to the idea of being the Eloquoi. She slowly grew to secretly hate her deceased baby brother. How could he have died and done this to her?

To learn of Quio's survival, his betrayal, was like salt in a wound.

F o r m s As her chosen biome had been the grasslands, Yana's preferred forms stick to that area of expertise, including the maned wolf and mountain lion. From each of her four older brothers she has learned one form: wild dog (desert), alligator (aquatic), black bear (forest), and grey wolf (tundra). She has only one humanoid form, that of a young human female.





HART : *UPDATED November 2016 (Vhalar, Arc 716).
UPDATE 2: As of Ashan 717, Hart is officially a PC and he and Quio will have no further connection.
Image
N a m e Hart Qy'ihadi
R a c e Mortalborn (Immortal and human; raised by Biqaj)
G e n d e r Male
B i r t h d a t e 19th of Saun, Arc 692
H e i g h t 5' 9"
W e i g h t 145 lbs
S k i l l s Sculpting 39, Seafaring 26, Navigation 20, Jewelry Crafting 15
R e l a t i o n s h i p Promised one ; husband, lover.

P e r s o n a l i t y Hart is kind-hearted and free-loving, generous; he cares about people, and especially about their happiness. Innocent in a lot of things, especially violence --being a pacifist and optimist-- he nonetheless has his faults, namely his addictions-- sex and gambling being the two biggest. However, it is true that perhaps his actions can't always be helped; people just seem drawn to him and him to them, quick to share a smile and their lives. Due to this, Hart often gets pulled into things that he might not otherwise have expected, but he is far from one to say 'no' to anything-- women, men, food and booze, attention, etc etc etc.

O t h e r Hart, though unwitting of the fact, is the son of the immortal Edasha (Beauty, Jealousy, Sight, Adultery), abandoned by his goddess mother shortly after birth. Raised by a family of Biqaj, he believes the sea is where his maternal heritage lies, and has lived as a seaborn all his life.

A b i l i t i e s
N E E D
F u f i l l m e n t
Hart can sense when a nearby being is in need of help, and what it is the being needs. If pressed, he can also sense what the being wants, though this will double the severity of drawbacks he experiences.

D r a w b a c k s : Once having discovered a being's needs, Hart feels compelled to linger until those needs are met, one way or another. Leaving a being in need weighs heavily on him for trials or even weeks after, depending on the circumstances. Depending on whether or not he fulfills the being's need, he may experience obsessive thoughts, depression, or mania. Likewise, when Hart uses this ability to assess want, not need, he feels compelled to respond to that want-- especially if the being wants something of him, specifically.

G L A M O U R S
L i v i n g G l a m o u r
Once a trial, Hart can effectively turn himself and anything inanimate that he is wearing or carrying (ie clothes and a backpack, or whatever is in his pockets or hands) into a living glamour. His body becomes briefly incorporeal, for up to two bits. During this time it is obvious he is no longer a solid thing; his image does not change shape or form (he will still look like himself) but it will flicker like a candle about to go out. During this time he can take no physical damage as his body is no longer on the physical plane, and neither can he deal physical damage to any object or person. Using this ability, Hart can go through inanimate objects but not animate ones, but neither can he be held or grabbed.

D r a w b a c k s : During this state Hart is particularly vulnerable to nonphysical attacks, especially magic. Hart also has to be careful not to materialize while still within an inanimate object; should he do so, he will take crippling damage to his body (for instance, if his arm was still within a wall, the wall would likely break or sever his arm upon materialization).

P L E A S U R E

Using this ability, Hart can bring someone to the pinnacle of pleasure; thrust into pure bliss the target is rendered unable to feel anything else. During this time the target is in such extreme bliss that their mind becomes clouded, making it hard to focus. The effects are similar to being high or drunk and last as long as the target is within Hart's presence (within 100 ft of Hart), or, should the target remain in his presence for an extended period, for up to one break per day. Hart's touch, in this way, can cause an intense high. Because of this he has to be careful how often he uses this ability on a person or risk them becoming addicted.

D r a w b a c k s : About ten bits after using this ability Hart will become extremely exhausted and have to rest to regain his strength. How long he needs to rest depends on how long he has used the ability (using the ability for 1/2 a break = 1/2 a break or more of rest). At minimum he needs to rest 10 bits.

Bliss can be used up to three times per trial, but for each use without proper rest in between the ability becomes half as powerful.

O t h e r D r a w b a c k s : Using any of the three abilities, Hart will experience aging. Physical symptoms also include those similar to the flu, ex: general weakness, aches, pallor, dark circles, fever, etc. Typically, Hart will remain sick at minimum for as many days as times he used his powers (so, if he used his powers twice in a day, he would be sick for two days or more). Using his powers while still sick from the last use typically worsens his illness significantly.

JACK : UPDATE: As of Ashan 717, Quio has left Jack's care to Hart and Quio will never see her again.

N a m e Jack
B r e e d Unknown, mixed
G e n d e r Female
B i r t h S e a s o n Unknown, Arc 709
S i z e / H e i g h t ( at shoulder ) 1' 5" (or 43 cm) (full-grown height)
W e i g h t 25 lbs (full-grown weight)
C o a t T y p e Short-haired, fluffy

P e r s o n a l i t y Jack is a merely an average dog, a mixed breed with no significant abilities or attributes. She is laid back, sometimes limps on her front right side due to a perpetually sore paw, and likes all people, strangers and friends alike. Jack's a smiley sort of dog, always with her mouth open, and easily loyal. An extremely low maintenance animal, she appears to have received no vigorous training in any field, but seems to know enough to follow her master without being told. Whether or not she's trainable is yet to be seen.
CHICKENS : UPDATE: As of Ashan 717, Quio has left the chickens' care to Hart and will likely not see them again.
Image Image
N a m e s Corinne (buff), Jonesi (brown silver-laced), Starre (darker silver-laced)
B r e e d Orpington
G e n d e r Female
B i r t h S e a s o n Ashan, Arc 715
W e i g h t ( each ) 6.5 lbs (full-grown weight)

P e r s o n a l i t y Though generally sweet in personality, these chickens can be noisy hecklers. They babble through the day and night (only stopping to eat and sleep), and get especially rowdy if they don't get time out to stretch their legs around the ship. While these chickens always adored Hart they only ever tolerated Quio; sometimes they'd even accept scritches, though one might just as well like to give reaching hands a quick nibble.

In general, they will lay eggs at a rate of once per day (though occasionally will lay two) for three to five years, before slowing down.
