2.1  Forms

Lupus

Appears as she does in all forms, but with a noticable "crouch" to her hind legs from her GSD heritage.

Secui

Same as other forms, just bulkier.

Optime

Kaiolohia's hair is long (to her rear), black and sleek and shiny. She rarely will ever tie it back.

2.2  Build & Species

Her lean, curvaceous, toned wolf-like build comes from her wilder, paternal genes. She has a longer, narrrower snout, taller ears and slightly longer but powerful rear legs thanks to her domesticated, maternal genes. She is built "bigger boned" with a little more "meat on her bones" but she is not overweight.

2.3  Coloration & Fur

Predominantly colored more like a GSD, her base coat color is a rich brown. Markings include defined black that covers the entirety of her tail, all four legs, her underside and the whole of her neck with a stripe going down her entire back starting from between her shoulders. Facial markings include black backed ears and a stripe running from the back of her head and blending into her muzzle. Under her eyes is a wide, black, "v" shape that also melds into her muzzle. Directly over top of this "v" are six small, brown dots varying in size from smallest on the outsides and growing slightly larger in the middle. Her eyes are a bright, expressive teal which remind many of the ocean.

2.4  Modifications

  • Scars:
    • During her time as a slave, Kaio receieved many lashings which left thin marks all along her back. They are now almost completely hidden beneath her fur but can be felt if touched.
  • Tattoos:
    • None yet but she one day wishes to get a tattoo of a sea turtle somewhere.
  • Piercings:

2.5  Accessories

She wears a fake, pink hibiscus flower tucked behind her left ear, multiple necklaces, one on a leather cord with a polished hematite sea turtle on it, another with a real starfish pendant, another made of puka shells, another one with small conch shells, and finally one with a fake plumeria flower on it. Upon her wrists she wears various wood and shell bracelets, and an ankle charm bracelet made of various shells upon her right ankle and another ankle bracelet made of pearls on her left ankle. Not all items of jewelry are worn at the same time, they are usually mixed and matched on any given day.

3.  Personality

Kaiolohia is a girl you never forget. If not for her unique name and appearance, for her winning personality. Kaio is a free spirit, an Island child. She has a carefree, laid back way of looking at the world and is not often to be found in a down or sour mood. Some traits that best describe her are generous, kind, loving, enthusiastic, bright, accepting, creative, curious, helpful, protective, adventurous, loyal, respectful, playful, cheery, determined, flexible, forgiving, optimistic, naive, innocent, flirtatious, fun, insightful, intuitive, empathetic, honest and sincere.

With such admirable traits, not many would believe that Kaio was once very much the opposite of what she is today. Due to cruelty and abuse in her past, she used to constantly be fearful, shy, sad, closed off, anxious, and easily put down. A lot of these traits are still easily triggered in certain situations and she often still suffers through long lasting bouts of such emotions. Rarely is Kaio angry. She can become agitated or frustrated but she has never purposely verbally attacked anyone and has never physically harmed anyone except in self defense. When faced with difficult things, she will put her best effort into it. However, she can be easily discouraged and show signs of a hidden, inner, low self confidence issue. She is one of those people who doesn't know how truly wonderful they are, how valued they are as someones friend. She is extremely nervous around strangers but warms up fairly quickly. Despite her age, Kaio is still very childlike. She tends to view things differently and might not understand some of the "why"s in the world. She retains a childlike innocence and simple mindedness about some things while a very adult perspective on other subjects. Kaio can also be a little oblivious to some more obvious social cues.

A lover of all things natural, and an artistic being some of her favorite activities are dancing, playing the bongos or tribal drums, swimming, cooking, poi dancing, singing, racing, drawing, painting, carving, exploring, horse-back riding, star-gazing, romping in the rain, romantic walks on the beach, telling jokes, and just having a good time with friends. Kaio does not however enjoy violence of any kind (although she knows hunting is a part of nature), pain and suffering, loud noises, snakes, thunderstorms and cold weather. On a moral standpoint, murder, stealing, drinking, drugs, rape and slavery are bad but she is known to easily forgive people's wrongdoings. Rape and slavery she finds the most heinous due to her personal experience.

3.1  Demeanor

MAY BE FILLED OUT LATER

Discuss how your character treats others here, and their general "presentation." Although less a defined appearance quality, think about the way your character presents him or herself -- are they open, outgoing, and social, or introverted, quiet, and aloof? Considering and jotting this down as part of their appearance can help you as you're roleplaying -- keeping this small but vital detail in mind can give you major clues as to how your character would act and present themselves in situations in terms of body language.

How do they react to certain situations -- newcomer at the borders, a stranger with bad attitude in the neutral territories, a lost puppy? Do they have a strong sense of right and wrong, or does their morality shift to accomodate the situation and their best interest? What motivates them, and what frightens them? What do they enjoy and what do they dislike? Although this is a lot to think about, considering these aspects can help you fully flesh out your character. It's helpful to make sure that aspects of their personality mesh well with their biography -- thus, try to think of a plausible reason why a character acts a certain way.

3.2  Outlook

MAY BE FILLED OUT LATER

Optimist/pessimist? Submissive/dominant? Introvert/extrovert? A character who is more introverted might cross his or her arms while talking or avoid eye contact more often. This can also assist others in “reading between the lines” of your posts. While you may not take the time to detail how your character presents him or herself every time they make a move, having a general idea stated in your profile can help players fill in the blanks if they don't know your character so well.

5.  History

As a young child, Kaiolohia was the unfortunate victim of some very unkind circumstances. Kidnapped from her parents at the age of three months, she was then shipped across the sea with other children her age to the united states where she was sold as a slave. For a year she was used and abused, meant to do everything she was told by her cruel master. She served as a worker on his plantation by day and a sexual toy for him and his other twisted, sick minded buddies by night. She was whipped if ever she dared to fight back or misbehave and so has old scars from her mistreatment on her back to this day. During this time she had all but lost hope of ever being freed from her dire situation. She only tried escaping once, but was quickly 'cured' of any desire to leave. It was the life she had come to know. She had all but forgotten her birth family.

By age two however, Kaio's suffering was to come to an end. A family group of mercenaries were sent to raid her master's plantation one night when they discovered her in the basement, chained up, starving, battered and scared. They quickly rescued her and after a month of slowly earning back her trust and letting her recover from the ordeal, the group took the time to teach her a few survival and self defense skills such as how to use a bow and arrow, a knife and some martial arts. It wasn't long however before she had to part ways with her saviors and she found herself adopted into the family of a relative of one of the mercenaries who happened to be from her home, Hawaii. Given a second chance at a happy life Kaio lived and traveled the country with her new loving family, learning how to love life again and unlock her true self. She learned more of her culture, language and was taught the art of fire-play and other traditional aspects of Hawaii. She was given her own horse and a golden eagle to raise for herself. All was well.

It was at the age of three that Kaio finally went off on her own to face the world as a new, revived person. She made her way Northeast seeking to find a place where her talents might be of use or appreciated. She encountered many new faces on her journey, making friends everywhere she went and was gifted with many items for which she is grateful for and treasures to this day. She eventually made her way to Nova Scotia, a land richly inhabited by other Luperci. Eager to learn more about the packs that dotted the lands, after a couple months as a loner Kaiolohia decided to join up with the pack she found most intriguing, the one that seemed to suit her best. Cercatori d'Arte. Here she resides today, settling into pack life, learning, and hoping to put her skills to use. She one day hopes to find a way to return to her homelands in Hawaii.
