So I just finished the Dvalin Quest… please don’t make me do that again qwq
I will make a detailed post about this eventually but! Y’SHTOLA IS 100% BLIND ON BOTH EYES. While she can see some things based on the very aether [life-”energy] a person consists of, she did, in fact, lose her eyesight after the events of Final Fantasy XIV: “A Realm Reborn” [at the end of 2.0, relatively close to the beginning of XIV’s general story]. Please keep that in mind whenever your muse addresses her especially when she is a) in a different FF-realm which might cause her aether sight to weaken or become too tedious [in which case she is completely blind] or b) whenever crossovers are concerned. It’s kind of obvious since her eyes are white / basically burnt out BUT I had people in the past kinda not catching the drift either way.
to clarify: to her, the PEOPLE SHE ENCOUNTERS APPEAR IN THE FORM OF A WHITE SHAPELESS MASS OF GLOWING AETHER AGAINST A BLACK BACKGROUND. She CAN’T i.e recognize facial features, expressions, colors, details of clothing or anything intricate really. What she CAN see is i.e the rough outline of a person, the approximate height of someone, magic radiating in or outside of someone & whenever they are carrying an object [weaponry, etc] or not. The same applies to animals & nature in general. Though the latter seems to be a special case granted how nature is often full of a more refined aether that allows her to i.e see a tree’s roots woven through the very soil beneath her feet, etc.
Sometimes whenever she is around people, the color of the aether changes; it can have hues of red, blue, yellow, green, [or mixtures thereof] etc. – it depends on the person’s personality or whatever element i.e their magick assorts with. As mentioned above, Y’shtola can trace down said “magical energy / aether” in or outside a body; i.e.: if someone casts a fire spell, she is able to “see” it materialize & move [same applies to VII’s materia. She sees no color differences in that regard though].
