Basic Info

One could easily best describe Loui as many things. Aloof and evasive. But the most accurate would be to say he's a man of pensive silences. An ambivalent overthinker trapped within an eccentric entertainer.Having come from the Pillars of Ishgard originally, Loui grew up with a very clear and direct understanding of what nobility was like. After the loss of a life he cared for dearly, he stole away from Coerthas and made his way to The Shroud. From there he's wandered Eorzea to his hearts content. Almost two years ago, he settled down in a cabin in the shroud. He was lucky enough to find a woman he cared for dearly, married her, and hoped that it would be a chance at a happy ending.It was not.As of late. Loui's personality has obviously shifted. While once he was a jovial and lighthearted sort, now multiple things have taken hold. Divorce, Crisis of Faith, Jealousy, Anger. None of it has been good for him or his mental health.He rarely if ever smiles now. And when he does it is painted on at worst, and a simple distraction for the moment at best. He has lost much. Over and over and over. He prays that he won't have to suffer such again.

Brief History

RP Hooks

  • Seeker of Magic: While Loui is well versed in Red Magic, his interest in matters aetheric hardly stop there. Anyone with more to teach him of other forms of magic are welcome distractions.

  • Rebel Soul: A malcontent to some, idealist to others. Louinaut once fought to change the order and way of things in Ishgard. Now, following the recent ecumenical council, his tune seems to have shifted? Where once a man stood in opposition to the church, now he seems to stand along side it. For what reason?

  • Musically Minded: With music being not only his job, but primary source of income, Loui's very mind is doused in music. Anyone with any interest in song, learning more of music, or tales from near and far will find what they're after.

  • Triple Triad: Of all his hobbies and pastimes, Triple Triad is the one that he takes the most pride in his skill at. With a collection of cards that could rival or even dwarf some professional players he's always happy to take on a match. Just don't expect him to hold back.

  • Defiant Duelist: Louinaut was trained with blades of many shapes and styles since he was a child. Be it a longsword, sabre, or his preferred weapon of choice, a rapier, Loui will gladly take on any request for a duel.

  • Voidsent Slayer: Any form of work or outing that involves the killing of voidsent will quickly gain Loui's attention. The bard seems to have an almost undying hatred of anything spawned from that foul plane.

  • More Power: In one's goal to fight those that are possessed of great threat such as the beings of the void, one must gain strength. The real question though, is to what lengths one would go to become stronger? How much power can one hold while still maintaining their humanity?

Description Through Music

For a character so deeply ingrained with music as a bard like Loui, perhaps it is better to take a different approach to explaining him. Instead of spelling it out with words on a page I'd rather do it though songs, with each song or group of songs representing an important life moment or, more likely, a state of mind. With that said. Most of it all should be listed out below!

The Egomaniac

"The limelight, the stage, your atention. Call it what you will. I won't just claim it. I demand it."

The Duelist

"I find your conviction wanting."

The Anti-Socialite

"A performer who hates crowds, The irony right? But it's true. These people, this crowd... It's all grown so very trite."

The Rebel

"I am payback for those who died, even despite their obvious innocence."

The Broken

"All those lillies have turned black as I've weathered out this storm... and all I feel is cold."

The Shattered

"To find love after all the both of us have endured was the greatest miracle I witnessed. But you couldn't bring yourself to love me with the same intensity I felt...""I wasn't enough."

The Hunter

"After everything those monsters have done... every last one of those malformed voidspawn deserve nothing less than extermination!"

The Madman.

"Don't die on me too quickly now. I wanna gorge myself on this sense of fulfilment till I fucking vomit."
