Miqo’te ( ミコッテ [ miqo’te ] in japanese ) is a slipstream of cat-like people in Final Fantasy XIV. They have their equivalent in mithras in another game. Miqo’te are for the independent separate female ( identical few males are born to either tribe ) and have cat-like features such as ears and a tail, sometimes besides slitted pupils. There are two separate and quite distinct tribes, the Seekers of the Sun and the Keepers of the Moon .
The first Miqo’te ended up in Eorzea during the Fifth Umbral Era ( Age of Endless Frost ), chasing their raven over the frigid seas. Finding effective hound grounds ( and for Sun Miqo’te, possibly besides for other reasons ), they stayed. initially there was a draw of conflict with the local Elezen who viewed the land as theirs .
Seekers of the Sun
The Seeker of the Sun ( スンシーカー [ sunseeker ] in japanese ) tribe of Miqo’te are diurnal ( they are wake up chiefly during the day ). They are more ‘earthy ‘ in coloring than the early Miqo’te tribe ; their skin varies from pale to very dark brown and their hair colors are largely shades of brown, blond and red. additionally, heterochromia ( having both eyes different colors ) is more common on the Seekers of the Sun, even though Miqo’te in general have it more normally than the early races in Hydaelyn.
Reading: Miqo’te – Chrysalis
The Sun Miqo’te live in preferably close-knight tribes, and keep up bloodlines through the beget quite than the mother. only very few males among them are given breeding rights, and the rights fall to whoever defeats the last breeding male ( Nunh ) of the tribe. This is to ensure lone the strongest have children. Nunh are generally not given an crucial character in the kin aside from breeding, they are rarely ( if ever ) leaders. Their number depends by and large on the size of the tribe, with one Nunh for every 10-50 females.
additionally, Nunh seem at least reasonably bound to a sealed area within the kin ‘s hunt grounds. A transient ischemic attack who wants to become a Nunh has the option of claiming newfangled grounds for the tribe, either by going to unclaimed footing and claiming it for his tribe or by going to ground claimed by another tribe and claim that. If he can hold the anchor for his tribe for an extend period of time, the Tia becomes the Nunh of the area for his tribe .
While other tribes elsewhere exist, the Seeker of the Sun tribes who came to Eorzea during the Age of Endless Frost ( Fifth Umbral Era ) numbered 26. They found that their count equalled precisely the number of letters in the eorzean linguistic process, and decided that this was a augury that they should stay. Each tribe took on the letter of the eorzean rudiment nearest to their name. The tribes are listed below, along with their totem and the pronunciation of the tribe mention.
other, smaller and newer tribes may besides exist apart from the ones listed. however, such tribes are broadly not very durable and are always small. They are always formed by one male deciding to go off to become Nunh, and suspicion seems to be that it is because they can not win over a Nunh of their own tribe to become one. identical few females follow such a male, and even fewer will admit to belonging to another tribe than one of the master 26 .

Keepers of the Moon
The Keeper of the Moon ( ムーンキーパー [ moonkeeper ] in japanese ) tribe are paler than their cousins, and are nocturnal ( they are wake up chiefly during the night ). Skin color ranges from pale to pale pink, but besides very benighted grey tones and even pure black. assorted shades of silver and other pale colors are common on their hair. Compared to Seekers of the Sun, the pupils of a Keeper of the Moon are orotund .
Keepers of the Moon are more loners and live in little kin units, at most in gatherings of 2-3 families. They are a matriarchal club, and stick to bloodlines through the mother. Males are not even given a distinctive name but take on the name of their mother with some additions .
not a lot is known about the original Miqo’te terminology. however, it is known to have been unpronounceable for the other races .
A leftover of the language can be seen in the numbers of the letter H in Miqo’te names ( confront in Sun male first name and Moon female first names ). This is actually not H as it is in the Eorzean terminology, but a slender hiss or spitting good specific to Miqo’te, their mouths being slightly cat-like in some features. The Miqo’te H seems to be pronounced as it was in the first place by the Miqo’te themselves, but the other races, being incapable of producing the sound, read it as a silent H ( Bhee – > Bee, Kuzh – > Kooz, Pahsh – > Pash ) .
Another reading are the Seeker of the Sun tribe names. The original Eorzean writing of the tribe names was bare estimate of the Miqo’te terminology for social reasons. however, by and by on the pronunciation of the kin ‘s name came to more closely reflect the Eorzean read of the letters. How close the current-day kin names are to what they used to be is anyone ‘s think, but they might still provide a hint as to the structure of the terminology if this is kept in mind .
seeker of the Sun Names
The beginning part of any Seeker of the Sun name is always their tribe ‘s name, followed by an apostrophe. The names of the 26 major tribes are listed above in the incision detailing Seeker of the Sun company. directly following it is the given name. The tribe appoint seems to be thought of as share of the given name or a polite summation to it, for merely a person ‘s close friends might use only person ‘s given appoint without the kin name attached .
male given names consist of only one or two syllables, while female given names seem to have 2-3 syllables to them .
The practice for last name varies between males and females. It is considered an identifier of which family you belong to, and as each male is considered the headway of a modern family, males do not get last names per so. Each female ‘s last name is the given mention of their founder ( the originator of their family ).
In place of a last name, each male has a title. This title is either Nunh ( pronounce ‘noon ‘ ) or Tia ( ‘tea-ah ‘ ). Nunh is a breeding male, one allowed to make children within the kin. Tia is anyone else, and is the nonpayment appointment for any male. Nunh title can be lost angstrom well as gained, Tia can only be gained .
As for pronunciation, cosmopolitan English rules can be used except possibly for the case of the tribe names. See tribe name ‘s pronunciation above in the Seeker of the Sun society segment. additionally, the tribe name normally flows into the given identify .
O’raha – o-RA-ha not OH.raha
Y’shtola – yash-TOE-lah not ya.shtoe-lah
