Reasonably physically attractive, made more so by physical grace and the fact that she's completely unaware of her own attractiveness. If she uses her looks at all, it's to intimidate men who she believes think she can't really be much of a fighter.
Personality-wise, though, she's detached, stubborn, and opinionated. She wants to save the world, but she wants to do it HER way. She doesn't really understand other people's point of view, or want to. She is what she is, and other people can just deal or get out of the fuckin' way.
She's physically restless and intensely religious. These two characteristics have combined in her to make swordwork her chosen form of worship. It isn't a practical skill for her - it is the end-all be-all of her spiritual life. Not that she'll shrink back from running in and lopping off some hydra heads, but that's not really the point of it all.
People tend to bore and annoy her, especially if they start going off about mundanities (politics, weather, small talk, etc.). When traveling with a group, she usually just spends a lot of time by herself, though she will work with them to accomplish specific things without too much trouble.
She's the youngest daughter of minor nobility from the fringes of Ivalice. At the age of 16 she made a pilgramage to the Holy City of Murond and joined the Templars (the army of the Church). After a couple of years there, she was transferred to 'special duties', partly due to her extraordinary abilities and partly to her, erm, independent streak. She's now officially a bodyguard to the cleric in the party.
At 6th level she's going to take Spring Attack and Whirlwind Attack and another rank in intimidate. Then at 7th level she will be come (*drum roll*) a Weapon Master.
As a Weapon Master she will get to do Ki Damage (maximum damage with weapon of choice) 1/level/day, deciding after she hits. At higher levels I will get a larger critical range and get to do Whirlwind as a standard rather than a full action. Yummmmy. Automatic 19 points of damage, ohhh yeah.
