CHARACTER PROFILE

Character Name: Corona Xrephnia
Character Source: OC, Final Fantasy XIV universe

Profession: Storm Captain, Assassin, Instructor-at-arms

Spent Essence: 1850
Base Fund:

Physical Tendencies:
Power (P): 15

Corona doesn’t go out of her way to exercise brute force, mostly due to her physique allowing her strength to come naturally in whatever she’s trying to accomplish.

Toughness (T): 15
The assassin prefers to avoid hits as opposed to taking them. Washing blood out of her tunic is a real hassle! That being said, she is equipped with protection under her tunic for when she can’t help but take blows.

Quickness (Q): 35
Corona heavily relies on her nimbleness during combat, often taking it upon herself to quickly slip behind enemy lines or right into an adversary’s blind spot during more personal encounters by hiding or casting Shukuchi.

Skill (S): 35
An assassin without finesse is little more than a blundering fool who found their way into the cutlery drawer. Corona is well aware of this and opts to employ numerous techniques to not only outwit but overpower her opponents.

Personality Tendencies:
Aggression (A): 10

Corona has learned to keep a level head, especially with her position as an instructor. Such patience is required both in the barracks and out on the water. That being said, she does have a tendency to get a bit frustrated if things don’t go as planned, but she doesn’t let that deter her from getting things done!

Cunning (C): 40
To Corona, playing a tense situation like a game of strategy is just par for the course. Exploring any possible scenario is nearly a necessity to ensure the smoothest (or in some cases, the most entertaining) outcome.

Diplomacy (D): 40
Corona is known for having quite the silver tongue when she doesn’t let her blades speak for her. The woman will try to talk her way out of sticky situations whenever possible if it means avoiding conflict or any other negative consequences.

Support (S): 10
In Corona’s line of work she’s used to operating alone. As one might expect, bounding around an enemy ship with an entire squadron would surely turn some heads. Despite her solitary tactics, however, she certainly doesn’t mind company otherwise! Not only is having friends around a plus overall, but she has much to gain from blending into the crowd...

Items:

Abilities:
Sea Cutters [300]

Damage 3 (300)

Corona’s signature melee weapons, a pair of folding blades she mainly holds in an icepick grip. Both of the blades are shaped like rather shallow axes, their crimson red steel folding for ease of sheathing. Despite their rather unique design and use, they closely resemble the daggers of an experienced rogue.

Still, Corona’s rather imposing size and strength make these blades outlandishly damaging, akin to the strikes of a sword more than small hand-axes or daggers.

Armor [400]
Protection 2 (200)
--Ongoing (200)

In order to make sure that the correct blades are entering the correct bodies, Corona takes precautions to guarantee that standard weapons that find their mark on the assassin's form aren't as dangerous as they would be otherwise. The woman's tunic is draped over a fitted gambeson that secures her upper half, while her legs are guarded by a pair of steel greaves. Her outfit also features a lone steel pauldron, however this is mostly a cosmetic choice than anything else, even if it has been known to deflect a few loose blades from time to time.

Shukuchi [750]
Teleport 3 (900)
--Finite (-150)

With a snap of her fingers, Corona can disappear in a puff of smoke and appear within 40 feet away from her original location in a near instant. Wherever she plans on going must be within her line of sight and completely accessible by normal means. This is not a teleportation and more of a means of moving extremely quickly, so she cannot complete the action if her legs are bound or she is otherwise incapable of movement. After a single use, Corona must enter a state of brief yet intense meditation before she's able to perform this ability again.

Hide [400]
Concealment (Sight) 2 & (Sound) 1 (300)
--Ongoing (200)
--Limited (Slow, Can't Attack) (-100)

Corona can vanish seemingly into thin air, allowing her to sneak around undetected. Given that her footfalls are quite heavy, someone with more acute hearing could easily determine her location in an otherwise quiet environment. For this reason she has to move quite slowly while hidden, at a normal walking pace. If she moves any faster she will begin to quickly become noticeable once more. Furthermore, any form of attacking will give away her position, if not due to her sudden swinging movements, then from the scream that would inevitably come soon after.

BACKSTORY
Birthed into the Hellsguard clan of the Roegadyn race, Silent Corona was born in the wealthy city-state of Ul’dah to a pair of sellswords, a profession common with Hellsguard members. Her parents had met on the job, sharing a few drinks together at the local tavern one night. Calling the girl’s conception a mistake wouldn’t be entirely correct, but neither of them could deny the fact that several mugs of ale were a deciding factor for the way things went that evening.

Due to the couple’s line of work, it quickly became evident that the two were unfit to raise the child, unless they were content with bringing an infant into the rather grisly world of mercenary work. Needless to say, this wasn’t the case, and Corona was taken in by a Hyur woman from the La Noscea port of Limsa Lominsa, a neighboring city-state across the Rhotano Sea.

It was here that Silent Corona’s life truly began. Her adoption impacted the rest of her life even at a mere few weeks old! For starters, her foster mother saw fit to change the girl’s name to something that strayed from the typical Hellsguard convention of naming children based on the sights and sounds of nature, complete with adjectives. Instead, she insisted on referring to the girl under her new family’s surname, naming her Corona Xrephnia.

Aside from her rather unique name and unconventional beginnings, Corona had a generally unremarkable upbringing, living out her life as any Limsa-born girl would. Given that she resided in a port town, most of her late teenage years were spent fishing and learning to sail. As she crept into adulthood, she would eventually set her sights on the city-state’s naval Grand Company, the Maelstrom. Serving under the Thalassocratic Navy, the Maelstrom would operate in open waters, upholding maritime law and serving in times of war, specializing in naval combat.

Such an endeavor gave the girl a purpose, something she had long since been seeking in an otherwise uneventful life! Corona was recruited at age eighteen, steadily working up the ranks for nearly an entire decade. When she wasn’t out on the water putting pirates in their place, she could instead be found in the Maelstrom barracks, working as an instructor for new recruits who had hoped to join the Grand Company’s ranks! Her years of active service would eventually earn the woman the title of Storm Captain, one of the most prestigious ranks offered to only the most loyal of company members.

Sure, the woman could command fleets and sail ships, but she particularly excelled in the arts of stealth and close-ranged combat. Equipped with a pair of daggers, Corona specialized in quick, discreet business while still proving to be quite the adversary in proper battle. Given her physique, one would be hard-pressed to find any of her crew members who could call her the sneakiest, quietest woman you’d never see, but the Corona had ways of performing her duties in plain sight, even if it meant playing dirty!

However, on one fateful day, life as she knew it would quickly come to change forever. During one of her instructing sessions she was stricken with a sudden headache capable of bringing even the strongest to the floor, and she was no exception to this! As she collapsed, the last thing she could recall was her group of trainees rushing to her side in a futile attempt to come to her aid while she lost consciousness. After waking up what felt like mere seconds later, Corona would find herself in uncharted waters, the Crossroads.
