Profile of Kai: Details
Appearance
Kai is virtually untouched by her wolf heritage; her looks are not reminiscent of any wolf you'd find in the wild. Depending on your taste in aesthetics, some might find the cur beautiful and exotic or jumbled and odd.

She is tiny, particularly in comparison to her lupine brethren, with slender limbs and small paws that forever seem to be on the move. Her form is ectomorphic with a high, gamine waist and coated in soft, feathery fur that more closely resembles a dog's than wolf's in texture. Her skeletal structure is smaller than a wolf's, combined with her mysterious demeanor and silent communication; the naiad seems particularly gentle in demeanor.

The wolfdog's coloring immediately marks her as a canine. Much like her father, Kai possesses a "leopard" coat consistent of a mixture of deep gray and various shades of brown. Her underbelly is fawn, blending into the pale grey that swathes the the length of her body. Black patches, accompanied by speckled russet, mahogany, coffee, and dove grey, are scattered all over. A pair of "glass" eyes, inherited from her paternal grandmother, peer out of her face - the right one "cracked" with vivid cerulean.

She is a ragged creature - feral in looks and mannerisms. Her body is carried low, hunched, like a jungle cat on the prowl. Her body speaks for her, for she has learned to communicate effectively with others by body language though she is capable of broken speech. Her ruff is matted by locs that extend along her spine to her tail, often dirty and tangled with natural debris. At times, Kai will tuck flowers or scented herbs into her dreads for decorative effect. Her muzzle and paws are stained from berries - used to create dyes - and at times her face is painted with the juice as well.

Kai travels with a small kingfisher named Tula, who is almost never absent from her side. She is seen riding on Kai's back or flying overhead, or even perched nearby.

"I am iron and I forge myself."

"This world is too small for you."


A neurotic woman with a highly balanced personality. Possessing reasonable fear, and a vast intellect, she wisely does not hold herself as immune. Instead, she forever keeps herself a student of the world around her, and is always at attention, as she should be. She has a tendency to have bad nerves and react with anger towards her insecurities. Kai is an eccentric and joyful girl with a bizarre and zany air about her and is often the source of entertainment among friends. Though this is arguably a facade to hide the more serious and emotionally troubled girl brooding beneath the surface. Nonetheless, she is sincere in her loyalty to those who have won her heart and is respected for her sharp intellect and wisdom.

She is a devoted servant of her gods(vague nature spirits that she believes inhabit everything in the natural world) and has been known to experience spiritual "visions" in her dreams. The girl is practically feral and uses few words. She has little grasp on language and chunks are missing from her memory, a result from her plunge into the sea. The words she does utter are used mostly for emphasis and she speaks mainly through vocalizations and body language.

She's been known to travel with animals in the past, something akin to familiars or friends rather than pets. Most would find this queer if not for the remainder of her oddities. Indeed, her fascination with all things related to nature is the least notable of her quirks.

Notice: Recent developments have left the sea wolf shaken to the core; she lacks a spark that was once burning. Combined with the violent wounds now coating her form, it's clear some horror has occurred to disturb her inner peace.
Biography
Born to a swarthy sea witch, she was chucked over a cliff moments after being born. Kai would never know this nor the reason why she was so unceremoniously tossed away but it might have been her runt status or perhaps she was merely unwanted.

It's by sheer luck that a predatory hawk snatched up the girl, leaving her 'Hawk-marked', intending to eat her. On its way back to a safe place to scarf down the infant, Kai's hawk was attacked by a hungry rival and in the chaos, she was dropped. Caught in the underbrush and on the broad leaves of tropical plants, the child found the ground with hardly a scratch to show for her misadventures. It was then that she was found by a nursing vixen who Kai would later know as Elin, who rather than eat the scrumptious morsel, took it home to raise alongside her kits.

As her foster siblings came of age, they dispersed but Kai remained, content to stay in the cove where her vixen mother had raised her. She was happy here until Elin disappeared, unbeknownst to Kai she'd been swept out to sea after swimming out just a tad too far from the coast. Kai searched, but unable to find her foster mother, she gave up.The dryad stayed in the cove, hoping to cling to some semblance of her home.

As her first birthday passed, the naiad moved on, unsatisfied living alone. She decided to see the world and travelled alone in peace for two months. Recently, she was attacked by a band of pirates and found herself backed against the precipice of a cliff as they closed in. Between surrendering to the mercies of the pirates and surrendering to the sea, she chose to throw herself at the ocean's mercy once more. After washing ashore and meeting the brooding Kjalarr, she wanders south with Tula further inland and bumps her head in a tumble on the mountains, furthering her speech loss and her strange behavior.

After a brief stint with a fledgling pack, Kai was attacked by a stranger (hence her disappearance) and though she appears to have been held hostage and tortured, she remained inland to hide out and heal after escaping.

Once better, she wanders again to the ocean where she meets Cry.

Profile of Kai: Additional Information
In order to explain Kai's disappearance IC, and because who doesn't love angst-filled plots, it can be assumed she was taken captive by a stranger and tortured.

*This character is currently and will be undergoing reconstruction. I also plan to get her involved in some plots if anyone is interested.
