Mothering

It's kind of his existence

Give a two or three word description of yourself.
“Human and demon”.

It took me a long time to admit to myself that this is what I was… At first, I was ashamed of my demonic heritage—I wanted to live up to the expectations of my project managers--the men who had essentially raised me—while at the same time being no different from then. Then, after what happened on the plains, and when I realized everything that happened to her, I… I wanted to shed my humanity, which I thought was disgusting, and disturbing, and egotistical….

Now… I’m starting to realize… it’s all of these pieces that make me who I am. It doesn’t take away the harm that was caused to create me, the harm that I’ve done in existing, but… I’m loved for who I am, as a whole, complete being. I think I can do good too, as this person. So, I want to be all of myself, present every part of myself as honestly as I can be, in order to accomplish that.

Do you have any nicknames, street names, titles, nom de plume?
… Kaichii is the first one that comes to mind. As annoying as it is, it… has kind of grown on me. It comes from Malba’s nickname for me, Kai, which is also a very affectionate name. Both names make me feel loved and wanted… I don’t fight them much anymore.

My highest rank within the army was captain. By the end of my service, I’d been demoted to sergeant, so… I suppose that’s my lasting military title.

What is your full birth name?
Kailas Mitali. I… was told that my mother named me, but I don’t know if that’s true. My family name comes from one of my project managers, Dr. Mitali—I’m his legacy, so he gave me his name. I can’t say I have any interest in keeping it.

Where do you live?
I live in an apartment with Nia and Ikenna. In Tevrra, as it were.

Why do you live there?
Because that’s where my family is.

What is your citizenship status?
Ah… I’m somewhat of a special case. I suppose I’m categorized as a documented immigrant, but… really, I’m regarded as more of a thing than a person, aren’t I? A dangerous weapon in the hands of Ikenna Nuiwa. He’s tempered me well.

What is your most obvious blessing or strength?
My physical strength. Even without Huisto’s… serums… I’m incredibly strong. My body was made for destroying others, but… I’ve found it’s just as good at protecting them.

What do you perceive as your greatest blessing or strength?
In all honesty, when I think about what makes me special, I… I’m very lucky to have met the people that I have, to be loved by the people that I am, to be cared for by my family. The love and warmth I’m surrounded by… that’s what I’m blessed with. It makes me stronger, too.

What is your most obvious flaw or weakness?
I would say that my illness would appear to be my weakness. Even though it’s gotten better, its left a mark on my appearance. I’m nowhere near as strong as I used to be, and I’m susceptible to getting sick again.

What do you perceive as your greatest weakness?
I’m learning how to protect, but… I can’t repair. I can’t heal. I want… so badly, to be able to restore things, instead of simply damage them. I know that’s counter to who I am, but… still, I….

Was there any event or cause of these weaknesses?
The chemical attack on the plains, and… my heritage, I suppose.

Physical Traits

How old are you?
Thirty-five.

What is your gender?
I’m a man.

What is your species/race?
Half-human, half-demon.

How tall are you?
6’1”

How much do you weigh?
150lbs. I’m… really excited to have hit that mark again, but I’m still a bit short of my goal.

What is your general body type, frame, bone structure, and poise?
Fairly ectomorphic. Long limbs, slim frame. Before, I was… a little more mesomorphic, but it remains to be seen what of that was naturally my body, and what of that was Huisto’s efforts.

What is your skin colour?
I’m fair.

What is your hair colour?
“Strawberry blonde” is what Nia’s called it.

What is your hair style?
Medium length, naturally wavy… When I style it, I kind of let it do what it wants, within reason.

Do you have any facial hair?
I don’t grow any.

What is your eye colour?
Blue-green.

Does it change?
In warmer and cooler lighting, yes.

How attractive are you?
According to who? I would say… not very. I’m awkward and strange looking, especially by Huistonian standards. Even in Tevrra, I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb. But… Ikenna tells me that I’m beautiful. He has strange taste, but… I believe he’s telling me the truth when he says it.

What is your most distinguishing feature?
My eyes have a natural red outline. I was told these are inherited from my mother.

Do you have any scars, tattoos, or birthmarks?
Lots. I have more than a few scars on my torso from different injuries. There’s some rough spots here and there from heavy collisions with the ground, a sharp line across my back from a slashing on the field, and of course… ah, the scar from the gunshot wound.

Aside from these, I have an identification number tattooed onto me. It’s on my upper leg, left side.

Do they have any special significance?
Most of them don’t. I would suppose my most recent scar has… significance to Ikenna. He’s always staring at it forlornly. The tattoo, too, keeps me tied to Huisto, no matter what.

What is your handedness (left/right)?
Right.

Do you resemble some currently known person?
Not that I’m aware of.

What is your hand size/description?
Long fingers.

Do you wear a uniform?
No. Not anymore.

What kind of clothing do you wear?
I usually wear a standard suit. Something with a little flexibility, though. I let Ikenna help choose the colors….

What is your clothing's style or level of sophistication?
I match the tone of whatever event Ikenna’s attending.

What size are you for various pieces of clothing?
Typically a large. An XL, if I’m in something that runs smaller. 32” waist, 38” or so chest… we’re working on these numbers, of course.

Do you wear makeup?
No, not unless Malba or Nia are feeling like experimenting.

What sort of vocal tone do you have?
Usually, I’m very quiet and deadpan. Around the ones I love most, there’s… a bit more life in my voice, some genuine emotion. I like to tease and be playful with Ikenna, Nia and Malba. I can also sound very petulant if Ikenna is getting on my nerves.

Do you get sick?
… Yes.

Maybe you catch the flu twice a year and that's it?
I try not to catch anything, but….

Or maybe you have a weak immune system and catch anything that goes around?
… unfortunately.
