Vikohla's look was evolved from the Flappers of the Roaring 20s, along with a few silver screen makeup conventions. Hopefully I can track down some attire close to the fashion of that era while still giving her something suitable for the setting and her circumstances. So FFXIV goth flapper is the fashion goal basically. I thought about making her a very quiet or bashful character (silent movie era, get it? eh? eh?) but decided against that. Vikohla being the silent type wouldn't help other RPers or their characters much. It can be done, but I'm not confident enough to try that yet.
I wanted to give Vikohla the most wonderfully massive schnoz I could find, I thought it would look cute seeing her nose poke out of her hood or from under her mage hat. The in story reason relates to the idea that having a magnificent nose is often viewed as a regal trait denoting royal ancestry, or at the very least being descended from blue blood.
Vikohla was born into the poor side of a rich family and her parents didn't share the traditional obsession of crushing highborn family rivals. They planned to raise their daughter in a direction apart from the traditional family dogma and the politics which came with it. However, due to Vikohla's gargantuan beak, her grandparents thought she was a good omen ushering in a new era for the lowborn side of the family. It's for these reasons that she was named Vikohla, which means 'victory over the past' or 'victory at last'.
