I'm ashamed to say this is my second thread in a row but I just recently switched to a Xaela and I am COMPLETELY lost in what I should draw from for her new backstory because she's a dark horned lady now.

I'd take a step back and ask why you chose Xaela. Is there something in their lore that intrigued you in the MSQ? Did you like a tribe? The Stepps were pretty awesome.

 

Once you've got that figured out you basically have the beginnings of a concept that can start to form and take shape.

After readings a bot into their lore and such, I really got into the aspect of them being farmers but also warriors and nomads and I don't know but that really grasped me if that makes sense ??

If you haven't made it to the Azim Steppe in stormblood, you're in for a fun treat. They're essentially Mongolian inspired and have a lot more lore to them than just being farmers/warriors. Overall, nothing's stopping you from having a civilized Xaela just as you would any other race. At the same time, the oppurtunity to be a tribal Xaela is definitely more popular given what stormblood has brought in terms of immersion. I strongly advise continuing the MSQ, talking to NPC's and maybe even doing a few quests in the Steppe when you get there. You're still free to write a Xaela just about however you want; but as far as tribal cultures go, the Steppe is an excellent source to view first hand if you meant to go that route.

I just went through the MSQ as fast as I could so I should probably go back and finish side quests, I watched the Nadaam scene and that's about it sadly. Thanks for the tip!
