Background:

Narengawa’s family was attacked while traveling by another tribe. Most were killed yet many of the younger females were taken as slaves by the tribe attacking them. Narengawa was chosen to be a slave, and quickly learned to simply do what she was told. Over several years she had many masters as she was traded around like any other goods. At her second master, she was taken under the wing of his preferred slave. She thought her all about how to please your master, and she took this wisdom with her when she was traded once more.

Her life varied with her master, from the almost kind to the cruel and she couldn’t even count on two hands how many times she had wished that they would simply have killed her. Even if she did her best, some of her masters would beat her to an inch within her life, cutting her skin and her scales just because they could. At a point she tried deliberately to make one of her masters kill her, but even that she managed to fail at. By this time she no longer remembers her name, or who she was, she was just a slave, nothing more.

Her life finally changed when she was traded to an elderly master. Although not exactly kind he treated her fairly, and unlike most did not abuse her in any way. It was through him that she first heard about the lands of Eorzea, as her master seemed interested in traveling there. She found herself encouraging this, hoping that maybe she would be taken along away from the homeland she felt no love for. Alas her master health declined rapidly, and it soon became apparent to her and him that he would die. She expected to be sold or traded once more, but to her surprise when she was called to his room, she got a ticket put in her hand. Her master telling her that he was too old to go to the market with her, and had no use for trading her and that the ticket had already been bought so it might as well have some use.

A month later after her master had died; she stood at the dock looking at the boat. She had stolen some ragged clothing from his closet, making her look almost like a walking bag of some sort. It had taken every ounce of willpower she had just to go to the boat and it would take just as much too actually get on it. Where she found it, she could never really understand, but weeks after she found herself going off that boat in Thalanan wondering what to do now. All she knew in life was how to serve someone, and although she knew she was free now, she simply had no idea what that meant or what to do with it.

She is also a bit of a dreamer, and can often forget time and things she is supposed to do if her mind gets caught up in something else. She is quite intelligent.

SKILLS

Talents/skills:

Healing:
Ineyo is a strong healer, with an almost unlimited ability to tap into aether. Also she has the rare talent of being able to pull aether back out of a patient after it has done its healing. This way she can avoid aether poisoning if a person is so badly injured normal healing would not save them. This action drains her for all her energy though, and quite often leaves her sick for days, so she prefers not to use it.


Her tolerance to Aether also brings a secound downside. Due to her body's high Aether tolerance, she can not be healed by aether herself. Why she isn't sure, but it has been the same for everyone in her family who has the ability to pull aether back out of someone's body.

Archery –
Trained in archery alongside her healing and quite skilled with a bow. Being ambidextrous she often changes between how she holds the bow, sometimes giving her an extra edge.

Massage:
Part of her training with healing, also involved getting to know the anatomy of the bodycompletely. As her training progressed, she also started to learn the art of Massage, something that could often help a patient when healing was not really needed. She learned several different types of massage, and also how to make differently scented oils to use to help people in different ways.

Background:


Being born into a luxurious life, Ineyo hasn’t had too many struggles in her life. The hardest ones had been when her own stubborn side has clashed with her father Tadashi’s equally stubborn side. From a young age she was trained into a proper lady, and as soon as her healing capabilities were discovered she was put into training for this as well. Her teachers soon realized she had an almost uncanny ability to learn fast, and that she had a great love for helping people. Often to her father’s annoyance as she would invite poor hungry people home for dinner from time to time. As she grew up and understood how her father felt about it, she resorted to sneaking food out, instead of people in.
As she got older, she started learning more things, taking a special interest in massage to complement her healing skill. Learning how to use it to help people without having to resort to aether was something she had great fondness for.  Due to her frequent trips outside the house, her mother resorted to hiring someone to be her guard. Not because she thought badly about everyone, but she was not about to take any chances with her only daughter. That way Itsuki came into her life when she was 20. Over the years the two have become good friends, and even on his off days, he could often be found keeping her company.
On one of her many trips into the city she literally stumbled across Galagan. Fascinated with his inventions and the man, she managed to coax her father into getting interested (not that it took much, as her father was quite fond of inventions that could make him more money) and eventually hiring him as his personal inventor.
Ineyo started to spend most of her time with Galgan, at first thinking he was Raen like her, but the way he talked, and some of his ideas seemed very strange for her kind. It was only when she snuck out one evening to see him that she learned that the person she had fallen in love with was actually Xaela. To be able to blend in he had been coloring his black scales the golden color that Raen ones had. She was shocked and worried when she found out. She knew her father well enough that he would not accept him around his daughter, he already didn’t like that she spent so much time with him. For a while though, they managed to keep the truth hidden from her father (with good help from her mother) but in the end he found out. Both that her daughter had gotten engaged behind his back, and that Galgan was Xaela. In a desperate attempt to split the two, and get rid of Galgan he came up with an offer that was too good to refuse. He simply gave him the option of getting fired and expelled from the city, or travel to Eorzea to learn of new inventions to send back for his regular pay.
Needless to say, this did not go down well with Ineyo. Unlike what her father had thought (apart from a long harshly worded fight with plenty of shouting) she left her home only days after braving her fear of water to be with the one she loved. To keep her only daughter safe, her mother sent Itsuki after her to accompany her on her travels. After (at least in her mind) a horrible boat ride, she found herself in Eorzea, where a new life could begin.
