I was going to make a human Kanaya but I decided not to so you get this bean instead-
Name: Kaine Ceres Altera (goes by 'Kay' since she thinks her name sounds too masculine)
Abilities: A combination of item enchanting and glyph magic. Uses many different tools to cast her spells.
Appearance: Kaine is 4"7 and has honey-colored skin. She has narrow shoulders and toned arms, a weak torso, and slender legs. She gives off a somewhat mystical feel, and she stands straight with an excellent posture, which doesn't do anything to change the fact that she is most likely the shortest person in the group.
Her hair is silver, nearly white, curly, and rather unkempt, and she wears it in a bob that just reaches her jaw and puffs out. The tips of her hair are a color and sheen that looks like liquid mercury.
She has a lean face with a rounded jaw. Her eyes are wide and expressionless, seemingly taking in the world without bias, though they seem to look right through you at the same time. Her irises are a very pale grey, to the point of being mistaken for white, with darker grey flecks. She has very long, thin eyelashes, and the veins and tear ducts are the color of quicksilver instead of normal red. Her nose is pointed and she has narrow lips.
Kaine wears little to no color in her outfits, and when she does, it's usually precious metals or gems from the antique jewelry she collects and wears proudly. She dresses in a Victorian Gothic style. Usually, she wears a long-sleeved white blouse and a high-waisted black skirt with a crown pattern. She wears a black ribbon around her neck, pure white tights, and black flats.
On her left arm, she has a sleeve of tattoos in black and white. The tattoo shows planets, stars, astrological and astronomical diagrams, constellations, faceless figures, clocks, tarot cards, books, strange artifacts and glyphs sprawling above a Gothic manor in which a girl (who looks suspiciously like Kaine) looks up at the sky with no expression.
Due to her eccentric fashion sense and the tattoos on her arm, she is very easily recognizable.
Personality: Kaine is selectively mute and comes off as emotionless- she averages about four words and six facial expressions a week. She holds herself by the philosophy that "actions speak louder than words" and subsequently supports the group without complaining about anything that she's made to do. She occasionally talks to herself when she's alone.
At first, Kaine appears to be focused on something else at all times, and she comes off as rather unapproachable. Her selective mutism reinforces that perception. However, she is quick to help at the first sign that somebody needs it.
Kaine's mind is always active, and she's always hungry for more knowledge. If you saw her alone, she wouldn't look like the strong, silent type she acts like, but she'd look more like a mad scientist, throwing herself into whatever studies piqued her interest at the time and more often than not attempting to mess with forces that aren't to be messed with.
Even in public, she's very intellectual, observant, meticulous and a great problem solver. She's a good listener and is good for keeping secrets. She tries her best to mediate arguments with mixed results, and she's rather supportive. While she doesn't show any emotion, she's very quick to fight for others.
Kaine follows unconventional thought processes and does most things in a way that strays from the norm. She's obsessed with everything Victorian Gothic, as evidenced by her outfits. She's also interested in arts and crafts, writing, ancient writing systems and the occult.
If any complex sentences come out of her mouth, they're most likely
a) to somebody she really trusts,
b) explanations of various terms, studies or equipment (or otherwise sharing knowledge useful to the Watchers),
c) driven by necessity,
or d) all of the above.
Kaine refuses to admit it, but she finds herself drawn to certain people, but she's not sure what draws her to them. These people she will trust and protect until she's given a reason not to, and then she simply treats them as she would anybody else.
Kaine's rather determined, she stays calm and performs well under duress, faces problems head-on, and she doesn't flinch at things that other people would consider disturbing. She would sacrifice almost everything for knowledge.
Kaine's fatal flaw is her lack of consideration for her own welfare, combined with her tendency to defend others with her life. She will repeatedly put her life on the line for the people she's close to until she is mortally wounded, and then some.
She can also be very fussy and she's a little of a hypochondriac. She has a phobia of disease and when an illness is mentioned, she projects the fear she feels into her magic, producing faulty enchantments on inconsiderately-selected items and typos in intricate strings of glyphs.
Under her calm, unruffled facade boils strong emotions that she never willingly lets out, even when she's by herself. When her bottled-up emotions finally surface, her negative traits are exposed and amplified. Her meticulous attitude makes her attempt to be dominant over any project or other undertaking and lash out at people who oppose her ideas. She displays a very sharp tongue and will occasionally use her magic against people. This period can last anywhere from a few hours to a month.
After one of these outbursts, she withdraws and becomes rather depressed. Many perfunctory attempts to fix the damage she's done are made, but in all, she's a self-hating ball of depresso espresso. Expect her not to get anything done.
She always carries a notebook with her in which she writes down everything she observes.
Crush/Ship: @Galaxian Explosion, would it be okay if we shipped Kaine and Aeolus?
Other: Return Home Soon
