    Elisia Auredane

    Elisia is an adventurer by trade, and has nothing to do behind a bar. Yet her adventurer's innate curiosity compelled her to broaden her horizon and try something new. She learned the craft at an uncanny speed.While she may feel stern and professional at first, she can entertain you all day long with all the stories she has to tell, either circulated or lived firsthand.

    Lyallty stands proudly behind the bar, doing his best to overcome the anxiety that the owner's gaze and the guests' expectations lay upon him.He is used to working quickly and efficiently, but within the slower environment that the Retreat provides, he can take the time to hone his craft and convey his love through his drinks."I have twenty-three tiny wishes, but you probably won't remember them all, so I put them all together into one... I'd like to spend more time with you."

    Souda Shiki

    - coming soon -


    Souda was born and raised in Doma - The Land of The Samurai, Swordsmanship wasn't particularly Souda's expertise as he believed his true power was within his fists alone, when Doma subjugated by the Garlean Empire, Souda took refuge is a Doman Yakuza group called the Black Lotus instead of going out to fight as apart of the resistance, due to the times being very rough, lots of people fell under the Yakuza and got dragged into a life of crime they never wished to be apart of.Souda could handle death if it was justified but as time went on, the Yakuza got less and less lenient and understanding with people, as Souda was a guard, all he could do was stand and watch and make sure no one attacked the Don of the family but eventually... This life wasn't fitting to Souda, he saw lots of innocents suffer and plead for forgiveness in their last moments, So Souda left...He went to seek refuge elsewhere and use his skills in other areas, he picked up sleight of hand and such from the Yakuza and this was nothing new to him so he turned himself into a magician with the skills he acquired but he didn't truly feel like he was helping people, so he entered the Raiders Retreat and hopes to be able to impact peoples lives for the better there and put a smile on peoples faces no matter there past and allow them to avoid crime where possible.

    Nairoh Xhula

    Nairoh belongs to the many people that can boast of being one of Kayla's "children", having been adopted in her protective care. Yet why exactly would Nairoh be chosen to work at the retreat, is a question on many people's minds.The girl is hyperactive, impudent and impetuous. She can't read, write, count, cook or serve, and will break everything she touches. But her heart's in the right place, and she will do her best to be useful."Names mean nothing, I won't remember yours. I remember, like, things, and facts. It's really not against you, bald ugly grandpa... what's your name again?"

    Kayla Thelbourne

    Owner and designer of the Raider's Retreat, Kayla takes care of running the business and making sure that everyone's needs in her house are met.Always looking to meet new people, she is easy to approach and eager to chat. Be warned though: on subjects she is passionate about, she can talk incessantly."It's remarkable how easy it is to turn someone's bad evening into a good one. Sometimes, all that is needed is the right nudge, from the right person. Lives can be changed just as easily."


    This discrete Lominsan upstart has seemingly overnight risen to prominence in the merciless jungle of the Ul’dahn luxury goods market. So much so that she recently treated herself to one of the most highly sought-after houses in the whole Goblet, testament of the fortune she seems to have at her disposal.She turned her estate into a free public venue, gaining a growing popularity among adventurers and mercenaries of all trades. Speculators believe it is an attempt to grow her business empire even more, to allow her to conduct her shady dealings on her own territory in the very heart of the capital, and to recruit her own private army.If you were to ask her though, she would most certainly paint a more altruistic picture of the Raider’s Retreat, with a strangely empathetic glint in her eyes, unbecoming of the ruthless shark she is made out to be by the word on the street.

She is an empathetic and bubbly individual that values her freedom and her friends above all.However friendly she may appear, she holds some things sacred, such as her independence, and her territory. Disrespecting her boundaries was the last thing that many people did in their lives."You misunderstand: my patience is vast and my morality is vertuous. However, there are things I do not compromise on: set one toe behind my bar and you shall lose it."


    Alune grew up in a nomadic family of merchants in the Azim Steppe. Hearing tales of the travellers that passed by the area she grew up in, made her yearn for the world outside her home.One day, she met a traveller from Kugane, willing to have her join on his adventures to Eorzea. The sight of the local community prompted her to settle there after all, having performed on the Limsan streets for the gil to maintain the travel expenses.Her great interest in all corners of the world makes her quite chatty, so make sure to lend her an ear!

    Alivas Crestmourn

    Alivas resides behind the bar counter, where he toils to unite his three loves together: magic, cocktails, and Alune. He enjoys going the extra mile, in order to surprise and satisfy his patrons.Alivas is an avid adventurer, and revels in both sharing his experience, and listening to new ones. Wherever you tell him you have been, chances are he will go there after you."If I learned anything in this life, is that nothing is impossible. Striving to prove that results in the greatest wisdom a person can achieve."


    Alivas was born in Aleport, heiring from a family he barely remembers. After an accident that cost the lives of almost his entire neighborhood, he thought he would spend his days homeless on the streets, but was able to sneak in on a boat bound for Sharlayan.There, he met his master, who pitied the hand fate had given him, and respected his curiosity and guts. He spent a good sixteen years of his life on the island of scholars and sages, becoming versed in arcanima and alchemy.He eventually returned back to Eorzea, seeking to escape the constraining lifestyle of Sharlayan. He first did arcane consultation work in the various guilds of Ul’dah, but it didn’t take long for him to be accepted in a Free Company managed by a fellow man, and eventually a good friend, also from Aleport.There, he engaged in all manner of adventure, visiting many places of Eorzea as well as the East, his curiosity always getting the better of him in the face of adversity. He used the information and knowledge he obtained from those ventures to further his own research.He found his way to the Raiders Retreat with his adventuring party after a tiring expedition and the rumors about hidden secrets he learned there made him apply for work the same night. Every week, he puts his alchemical skill to good use producing drinks to help the Retreat's patrons find relaxation and healing, adding his own magical twist in each one. He has several stories of adventures to share, in exchange for more rumors and hidden secrets of the realm, so do not hesitate to speak.

    Erean Blackburn

    Whenever you are at the Retreat, you are on Erean's territory, and thus lie in his care. He loves contact with his patrons, and will tirelessly seek out new ways to guarantee the quality of their experience.Erean is a busy man. He has had a long and eventful life, and has many a tale to tell. He is hard to approach, as it is very likely that he will be the one to approach you first to entertain you."Thal's Balls, I'm sick and tired of those knobheaded, gunpowder suckling, tin canned Imperial bastards on my Twelve-damned trade routes!"


    Erean is a veteran ex-mercenary that hails from the islands of La Noscea, a second generation Wildwood Elezen from the Shroud, who knows little about the traditions and customs of his tribe. He grew up in Aleport, an important haven of the Admiralty, so he fostered a loving and respectful relationship with seafaring from a very young age.During his teens and early adult years, he served in various merchant and military vessels as a hired sword, polishing his skills as a Defender, wielding his sword and shield with flair and determination to get the job done, as well as protect his precious companions.Due to many years of training and fighting, his physique is chiseled and sturdy to this day, although his knowledge of aether and its applications is lacking, thus prompting him to distrust or poke fun at magic users.Nowadays, he can be mostly found knee-deep in paperwork, ensuring the steady, smooth function of his free company on a day-to-day basis. He makes sure that his companions and employees all have the supplies, material, personnel and information they require to successfully accomplish any endeavor they may undertake, be it mercenary work, trading or exploring any profitable ventures.Besides that, he maintains his position as an officer of the Maelstorm, utilizing his free company's and his contacts' information network to the benefit of the Admiralty, as well as rarely lending a hand personally in defending the sovereignty of the island nation.

    Ruki Okai

    Ruki is a cunning smooth-talker, that revels in the enjoyment of people around him. Be it by bringing drinks or by sitting down and keeping the patrons company, there is nothing he wouldn't do to put a smile on your face.Ruki may seem happy-go-lucky, and by all accounts he is. But don't judge a book by its cover, he knows how to treat serious matters with the solemnity they require. Give him a wave, and he will be right there for you."Let these eyes be a lighthouse, Let these arms be a safe harbor, Let this heart be a long-awaited shore."


    Hailing from La Noscea, in a family of merchants, he was surrounded by wealth, jewels & gold ever since he was old enough to walk. On a clear summer day, his father took him on a walk by the ocean, showing its boundless reach and telling him how it connects different places together, and all that is needed is a ship. These are words he would always hold dear as he grew up.A few years down the line, things just didn't sit right with him. Why do the people's conditions keep getting worse & worse as their family's house gets wealthier, he wondered. Digging into his family's ledgers, he discovered the corrupt & unlawful deals that his house has been conducting. Angered by his find, he left under the shroud of night, never to return, leaving the evidence he found on his desk for his family to find, along with a note to not look for him any longer as he had dis-owned their name.He then started his own operations, tracking down illegal dealings & taking their goods, only to leave it on the shores or plazas of slums, hoping that this may improve the residents' daily lives in any kind of form. As he sets off to sail, he remembers the words of his father, that the ocean connects us all, one needs but a ship. He ventured forth on his journey to help people to provide for their own, as well as searching for his partner, "the one".
    Hearing of the the Raider's Retreat's existence, he decided that there was no better place to gather information on his next target.
