Name: Tiu Feir
Class: Laguz (disguised as a thief)
Race: Cat Laguz
Appearance Description: Stands at 5 foot tall, she is slightly shorter than the average for her age. Her Laguz form is quite large, standing at almost 3 feet at the shoulder and weighing in at almost 250 pounds.
Personality: Tiu is a very methodical and close to the chest type of person, as for the last portion of her life she's had to hide almost everything about herself from others around her in fear of being attacked or captured. Everything needs to be thought out, planned for and executed perfectly for her, as she refuses to let her freedom be taken from her. She dislikes violence and will only fight if she has to, or if someone she cares for is threatened. Even then she carries no weapons and fights with only her hands and feet, using her speed and strength from her Laguz blood to catch people by surprise.
Biography: Hailing from Mirivia, Tiu spent the first 8 years of her life quite happily, growing up in a small tribe that kept on the move, avoiding trappers and other groups that meant them ill. This quickly came to an end when the tribe moved too close to Cesadas' border and attracted the attention of a large trapper group. The attack was fast and brutal, leaving many of the older Laguz dead or injured and the younger ones captured to be trained and traded, Tiu included. After almost a year a buyer from Ibion took interest and purchased her to have as a slave maid, the traders promising that she had been broken in already. This was proven wrong as when the ship had almost reached the shores of Ibion, she managed to pick her cage lock, knock over a lantern and flee the burning ship, swimming to land before disappearing. Over the next 7 years, she struggled to survive with no one to help, no family to rely on or friends to speak of. She learned to hide everything about herself that might give her true nature away, from never making eye contact so others wouldn't see the slight glow to her eyes to eating in small bites to keep her sharp teeth concealed. Her hair was naturally unruly and easily covered her ears if she keeps them folded down while her tail was kept curled around her waist. However, on a chance encounter, she ran into none other than the Crown Prince Eli. While wary, a small part of her mind began thinking, becoming more dangerous as time went on and the two of them eventually met a number of times away from prying eyes, sharing some of her wanderings and adventures to the curious Beorc. While she never told him her full secret, she began trying to make him her friend, in hopes that when he some day ascended the throne, he might have a better outlook on her kind.
Inventory: Tiu travels light, only carrying around a set of lockpicks at all times, as well as a small purse of coins.
Other: Tiu retains a mild fear of direct contact from her year of 'training' by the trappers, as well as being afraid to let anyone close enough to touch her head in case they feel the odd shapes in her hair. This often has her sleeping in out-of-reach areas such as trees or rafters.
