Born to a moderately wealthy pair of Dunesfolk, Langston's emergence as a Plainsfolk Lalafell was the source of a major row between both parents, with accusations of infidelity flying towards his mother. In spite of the falsehood of those claims, his father won custody of both children, but not before his mother named him Ilyigu Selayigu. The following sixteen years of his life would be highlighted by the sort of education one might expect of the wealthy; a rigorous regimen of education on trades and etiquette. Such business, however, could not hold his interest, as he was more fixated on his grandfather's culinary talents. This, alongside his growing disgust for the lifestyles of the wealthy, eventually culminated in the departure from his father's home without a word.

He spent the next five years under his grandfather's tutelage, though it was undeniably harsh at first. He also became more humble by his experiences in the harsh desert away from the city of Ul'dah, learning how to hunt, gather, and fish while also learning to communicate with people of different backgrounds and speech patterns. Upon the completion of his education, he chose to wear the name "Langston Clevers" to distance himself from his father and to make it on his own with a name that was not already showered with a history of coin and decadence.

The outside world proved harsh without the support he grew up with. Indeed, for all his time learning skills from those who raised him, he was good at restraining his emotions but not good at handling them once they let loose. Employment was also rough at first; he had the talent, but had to slowly build the reputation from working in kitchens around Eorzea. Within the next six years, however, he would become the owner and head chef of his own establishment, The Blossom and Blade, providing affordable and even free meals to those who were in need of a full stomach.

rp hooks


  • Cook for Hire - Need assistance in catering some event? Or perhaps you found an esoteric recipe that require's an expert's touch? He's your man.

  • Adventuring - Long journeys require meals as well. He's not the best in a fight, but he can hold his own... to a limited extent.

  • Face in the Kitchen - Perhaps you've seen him in some restaurant, whether he served you or worked alongside you.

  • A Luxurious Past - Though it's been years, there is the off chance that you could have known him during his youth, through some socialite gathering. Addressing him by his birth name may invite some hostility, however.

  • A Disciplined Future - As he is set on the path of the Pugilist, he seeks a need for people to spar with or learn from.

Current Events


  • The Court - Due to a number of technicalities and unresolved issues in Langston's inheritance, he suddenly finds himself in debt due to his father's negligence. With the aid of his brother's knowledge, and perhaps a better head upon his shoulders, he appears before the judges and works to find a solution that would hopefully please his whole family.

  • The Sentence - The judges, while just barely balanced on the scales of justice, manage to strike a deal with Langston. While his father is imprisoned as the fault lies with him, Langston is spared from such a fate. Instead, he finds himself in a prison of his own making, working for the Platinum Mirage. His talents are currently being used to serve gamblers and fighters in order to work off his own debt and to lighten his father's sentence.

  • The Armed - Robbed by an unknown pair of Brass Blades, he redoubles his training at the Pugilists' Guild. With his aether unlocked at last, his notorious violet eye has returned to normal. The fruits of his training are readily apparent by his improved physique and solid techniques, but also apparent is his frustration with this situation; he is far less patient with those around him.
