Opalene’s story begins like many others: she was born to loving parents and had a rather idyllic childhood. Her parents were kind, loving souls who instilled in her a passion for kindness and peace. They fostered her love of art and music and encouraged her to follow her heart. Opalene enjoyed an almost story-book childhood until illness took her parents far too early in life. Devastated and lost, she turned to conjury and the healing arts to try to mend her wounds of grief and loss.
Without the guidance of her parents, Opalene wandered Eorzea. Along her journey she aided hundreds of friends (and foes) in need — curing illnesses and healing wounds. While this mission in life was always very fulfilling to her, she felt incomplete; a sense of longing for family overwhelmed her.
Opalene wandered for many years before she began to put down roots of her own. She has started a new quest - one of self-discovery. She has revived her passion for music and art, and has begun to explore the Eorzean nightlife. She has found a sense of self-confidence she didn’t know she possessed, and has been able to embrace the darker side of her own personality, which has been forged by pain and loss.
Being able to photograph what makes you you is the BEST feeling ever. Let me capture your happiest moments so you can treasure them always.
Housing decor and design has become a fulfilling way for Opalene to express herself creatively. She prides herself on her venue design, but would be overjoyed to create a personal space you'll love to call home.

My public statement regarding Elana Astrea and Moonlit Kiss.
I was about to log out of FFXIV Monday, December 14, 2020 when my friend on Aether asked if I’m available for a voice chat because she needed to talk. I popped into her Discord server and was told Elana Astrea has been trash talking me to RP venue owners on the Aether datacenter. One of them joined the VC and told me how Elana sought her out, asking if she owned a venue, and then Elana proceeded to bad mouth me (completely unaware that this venue owner and I are acquaintances on very good terms).
Up until now, I haven’t really shared the whole story behind why I left Moonlit Kiss, and how it contributed to me leaving the Crystal datacenter. The truth is that while I was still with Moonlit, Elana admitted that her motives for running her venue were to destroy other venues, be “the best'’, and further her personal vendettas. She told me that her “Infinite Love” / “Spread Love Not Hate” campaigns are simply to copy and be better than A’ley Bristanne and the “Vibe Tribe” movement. All of this is pettiness, hostility, and vindictiveness are counter to why I roleplay, so I immediately left her venue, staff, and Discord.
Since then, I have tried to put Moonlit, Elana, and all the negativity that goes with them behind me — focusing instead on my friends and playing the game for its content. I have not uttered Elana’s name except for when people come to me to ask about the rumors and lies she’s been telling. I ultimately decided to transfer to the Aether datacenter to put distance between myself and people like Elana Astrea, only to discover that’s not possible.
I try to follow the mantra “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” It’s what I teach my children, and how I try to live my life. Despite everything, I won’t sink to the level of cyber-bullies who make it their mission to tear others down. That said, I won’t hold my tongue and keep the truth to myself either. And so, I am sharing my story with you here.
If you should have any questions, or wish to discuss any of this, feel free to contact me. My DMs are always open.
