Omniyoji started out as a mule for my main character Toyo. Toyo was initially an experiment. I used Toyo to test out Final Fantasy XI and see if it was truly the game I wanted to play. Within about a month, I soon ran out of inventory space on Toyo. Toyo was mainly used to make gil and harvest (I was addicted to harvesting lol >_>). I soon ran out of storage and created Omniyoji to help out Toyo with his business. Having realized I was going to stay in Vana'diel for a long time; I started over with Omniyoji (he had a better name).
Onmyoji, the original spelling of my future character, but was taken by some other schmuck. I had to opt for an alternate spelling which fortunately for me wasn't taken. I chose the name Omniyoji for its meaning and to define what my character was soon to be. The Onmyōdō☆ did exist but I focused more on the Japanese mythological sense of the word. An Onmyoji was a master of both the Yin and Yang, which were the negative and positive forces that balanced the universe. Having a name as such, Omniyoji was to be solely a mage.
At first I wanted Omniyoji to become a SMN. While leveling in the early stages right outside your starting nation; I saw for the first time the SMN job in action. I fell in love and saw it was really cool having mythical beasts battle for you just like the Onmyōdō and their Shikigami. Being a n00b and not knowing about advanced jobs, I settled for BLM. Having liked Black Mages in past Final Fantasy games, I turned to the dark arts. Since then I spent my Vana'diel life training and perfecting my BLM skillz.|}
