ἀρχή
Name : Quistis Trepe
Age : 18
Gender : Female
Height : 172 cm
Blood Type : A
Birth : 4th October
Weapon : Chain Whip.
Fighting Skills : The only woman with very strong physical attack.Her chain whip is so powerful that sometimes,it can even cause as much damage Squall's R1 gunblade.Strong against physical attacks but weak against magic attack. Her magic is average.Her draw ability is rather weak.However,her desperation moves is very strong.
About She joins the SeeD at the age of 15 and is a teacher of Squall.However, she is not strict and often as a counsellor for squall.And to be a teacher at SeeD, she is considerably strong as she is a woman and her strength lies in her chain whip.

:edit: Just something I found on Quistis tongue.gif - have no idea if this inspired the name or not.

xrninja and edsgirl got it. biggrin.gif *offers GP cookies* Well, at least, it's what I strongly think is the right way to say it.

What I believe to be the correct pronunciation is indeed "Key-stis", where the "qui" is pronounced like it would be in "quiche." This is due to the fact that the character's full name, Quistis Trepe, bears a certain semblance to European names (the "Trepe" looks French), like the other name "Laguna Loire" in the game.

Also, the fact that FFVIII has apparently had a lot of European influence adds to the argument as more supporting evidence. You'll see that the architecture in many parts of Deling looks very much like the stuff you'll see in Europe (the Deling arch looks like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris; the Tomb of the Unknown King has a similar design with ancient temples of Greece/Rome).

Yes, arche, that's the character that inspired the name. biggrin.gif

i remember that....i'd glance at a post that had an avatar like mine, and half the time it would be one of ailuro's posts and i would get confused because i didn't remember posting the post i was reading. :wacko:

Ah, I apologize for that. o_o The same color scheme was unintentional(how many times have I said this word? o_O). XD

And it's pronounced Kwi-stis. :D

EDIT: Haha, oops. I was late posting this. And when I look at my pronounciation-thing, it makes it look like the 'i' is short when I meant it something like "Kwee-stis". >>
And now I'm just confusing everyone. XD

Given that it may be a bit french, I'd say key-stee

But that's just my bad understanding of french tongue.gif

Hee, you never know. It might be. But since it might not be all French, I thought it might as well be half French.

Cool cosplay stuff you found there, edsgirl. biggrin.gif Reminds me of how I came ot associating myself with Quistis in the first place: I was playing FFVIII and my mother walked by during the FMV of Quistis in the beginning of the game, and she said, "Hey, that looks like you." And if I clip my hair up the way she does, I actually kind of do look like her. mellow.gif

There you go, kids. The full story behind my pseudonym. biggrin.gif

I thought you kind of looked like her too when I first saw your pic. Your just missing the blonde hair and the chain whip.

my grandpa walked by the tv once when i was watching pokemon, and he pointed at misty and said, "hey! she looks like you!" and then the screen flashed to ash, and he said, "that sort of looks like you too!" so i'm a mistyash (which i don't see. at all). mellow.gif

I thought you kind of looked like her too when I first saw your pic. Your just missing the blonde hair and the chain whip.

Hee, thanks. Though I'll probably never dye my hair blonde. But I'm working on the whip thing.

And Misty is also a redhead. laugh.gif I think you'd look more like Misty than Ash though.

Bah, I dunno what Ailuro and ninja are talking about. I get confused with their current avatars now, all the time.

And Goldfish, I think of you as the guy in your sig. ^^

Ailuro, your Ed avatar is just so feminine, I have to think of you as that. Ninja's isn't as much.

I don't feel sleepy either. And what are you going to do with your dear daughter tomorrow? And what do you mean by "ramp up", and why? mellow.gif ph34r.gif

Well, I'll need to make sure I'm an official member of both the Quistis fanboy and fangirl club tongue.gif

I don't know what we'll do. Probably role play some adventures: rescue Peach as Mario or save people as either love angels or steel angels. Also Anime network on demand has new shows on Mondays, so we'll watch any new Azumanga, Wedding Peach, and others.

That piece has to be part of a larger set. I just can't find it on any "works" lists either, which I find odd unless it's a sub-name of a larger piece.

Anyway, if I can, I'll continue on my futile effort to get 6 measures down at 1/8 speed for Liszt. When I get tired of that, I'll work on some lead sheets or something. I've got to start putting up melodies for songs and re-harmonizing them to make them more interesting. I'm just too lazy tongue.gif

- Disregard for sig rules and contributing to constant "shock and awe" is grounds for suspension in my opinion. The sig should be taken down and if it comes back up, he doesn't need to visit the forum anymore. People who can't respect others can all be round up and shot for all I care tongue.gif

On the plus side, n00bs won't see it coming when Gashole attacks!

@Quistis:
Odysseus was a pansy laugh.gif ...but you got to feel a little bit bad for some of his troubles. After all, he also had the n00biest crew ever seen in western literature. Odysseus' very lack of forsight in choosing crew members must have tacked on 2 decades to his journey. laugh.gif

Would it be bad if I didn't feel bad for him at all? The guy is a pompous moron, so arrogant that he even shed tears because his own story and misfortunes (that he usually brought upon himself) touched him so much. dry.gif

"n00biest crew" is right, too. But at least they knew better than Odysseus (evident in the fact that they tried to stop his Cyclop taunts). Too bad they all died. Odysseus' lack of foresight period is basically why there's even a story!

But I guess, in the end, I blame Zeus for it all. If he hadn't been fooling around with Leda (as an ANIMAL, no less), they wouldn't have produced Helen, and the Trojan War wouldn't have happened, since Odysseus made quite a few enemies in that war.

If Odysseus didn't make so many enemies, he'd be home by now, and I wouldn't have to deal with his pansy-ness while he's on a journey with a ship full of men and sleeping around on various islands. STUPID ZEUS.

All he wanted was just a little bit of fun. On thing I enjoyed about these stories of gods was how similar they are to humans. Really, the only difference was that they could escape the consequences. Funny, people used to believe in this stuff.

Can't blame him for being that, no, but at the very least, he could be a tiny bit more manly about it. "Oh, no, I'm stuck on this island. Boo hoo hoo. I don't wanna sleep with this beautiful woman every night. Oh no oh no oh no."
