Daughter of Grace Revlis and Zalen Damaichu, Kalila was born in the confines of New Dawn when it was still banded together. Though the daughter of the Alpha, she was born out of his mated relationship with Raeka Rain, making her something of a stigma upon her family – though not one that truly let it bother her. After her father's death and mother's disappearance, she wandered alone until she met a floppy-eared dog who told her about Sapient. She joined them spring of 2015 and became fascinated with the prospect of inventing new things.
Specific conversations, particularly anything that could affect further RP.
Species: True to her wolf-heavy heritage, Kalila appears to be a wolf; there's no traces in her size or shape of her sparse coyote and dog roots.
Fur: Her fur is short and well-kept, always thick and with a velvety texture. She grows a second coat during the winter, shedding marginally when spring returns.
Optime Hair: Type 3A. Voluminous and very curly, her hair is temperamental (especially in the face of humidity). Styled only on the rarest of occasions due to how unruly it is.
Facial Features: A broad muzzle and small ears typify her wolfy features, though her predominantly black muzzle gives her the appearance of being only eyes at a distance.
Build and Size: Statuesque describes Kalila well, heralding back to old human ideals of beauty from their Roman age; she boasts a classic display of an "hourglass" shape, with wide hips and a pronounced bust, though she's no contemporary waif. She lacks in bulky muscles and has her fair share of shapely chub, offering her a solid feature when coupled with her taller height.
Humanization: Though born in New Dawn, Kalila is highly humanized, as per Sapient's habits.
Likes: Making things, Sapient, reading, swimming, having conversations.
Dislikes: Being made to feel ignorant.
Creating useful things for the betterment of Sapient and its higher living.
Packs: Incredibly fond of Sapient, she prefers packs with similar mindsets; Krokar is her favorite outside of her home, due to their love of water (as she enjoys swimming very much), and she's fascinated by Midnight Shores, having only just found out there was a pack on the island.
Non-Luperci: Born in a pack dominated by people walking on four legs rather than two, Kalila holds very little of the disdain that Sapient possesses. Non-Luperci, or those who choose their Lupus form over their Optime confuse her, as the Optime body offers greater levels of dexterity.
Though she's beyond sexual maturity, she's thus far avoided the issue of romance, knowing only that she does find males physically attractive. She's never participated in sex and has no opinion of it, positive or negative. Her libido is low.
She undervalues physical appearances; Kalila strongly prefers males with distinct character who are emotionally compatible, as she can be distant and awkward when faced with emotions of affectionate nature.
Her upbringing in New Dawn shows in her preference of monogamy, though she doesn't stigmatize the lack of it, due to the prevalence of non-monogamous births/relationships within Sapient – and her status as an illegitimate pup.
Kalila would be considered an atheist, though not because she truly doesn't believe in higher powers. Instead, it's due to the fact that she's simply never considered how she feels about it, not concerning herself with the possibility of the afterlife, deities, or religious beliefs. She's not been exposed to many.
Grace Revlis: Kalila's mother was attentive and loving, taking good care of her then-youngest daughter; she even took her out to explore, on occassion. In spite of that, she did eventually disappear, though not on her own volition. This has left Kalila a bit confused on her feelings about her mother, who she doesn't realize is still alive.
Zalen Damaichu: Her father had a mate at the time she was born, and it wasn't her mother. Because of this, and New Dawn's laws about children between mates and the importance of monogamy, she wasn't entirely welcome in Zalen's home. Still, he would watch her when Grace needed time to herself, and it was because of him that she remained in New Dawn until his death.
