Slave, ex-thief

Physical Description
Khero has fair skin and pale, piercing blue eyes framed with thick lashes. Her hair is straight and black and streaked with teal and deep purple, worn shoulder length and a little choppy, an obvious attempt at fixing whatever she did to it when she used to cut it herself. She has a thin scar over her right eyebrow, and more on her hands from a life of hard work.

And though it typically remains unseen, there are scars crisscrossing her her back, shoulders, and buttocks from a flogging years ago.

She has a slender build, though she's a bit on the scrawny side from a rough life on the streets, her ribs, hip-bones, and clavicles more prominent than they should be. If she were better fed, she'd be curvier, for she has wide hips and a modest bust.

Khero is an emotionally driven person with a great deal of empathy for others, though this is often hidden behind a tough, serious, and slightly paranoid exterior. She's a bit of a stickler for morality, and can act rather maternally around others, adopting her role as the mature one--because she was forced to grow up young in order to survive and raise her siblings. She had to be tough. That said, though she can be serious, she's passionate--when she does something, she doesn't do it halfway; she tends to pour her soul into it.

Playing such an adult role early on gave her a domineering streak, and she is usually the one in any given situation to take on a leadership role--and insist her way is the right way and that she knows best, which can lead to self righteousness. She is stubborn and argumentative and not afraid of speaking her mind, as she is used to being the one in charge!

Khero is slow to forgive, and tends to hold grudges for a long, long time. It's perhaps because she pours her heart and soul into things that she feels this way, because betrayal stings all the more. She's a very suspicious, cautious sort, and tends to assume the worst of people at first glance--for the sake of self-preservation, as mistakes can be costly and it's just best not to trust other people.

Though she's not at all a fighter, and would by far prefer to be a pacifist, Khero possesses a great deal of bravery and determination. She will fight like a wildcat if she has to, though she doesn't like it, and tends to adopt a very practical view when it comes to high stress situations. She doesn't normally act on impulse, but prefers to think things through and do whatever is necessary. She generally prefers to try several other options before resorting to violence.

Though she lived most of her life as a thief, she justified that to herself by saying she only did it to survive and raise her siblings. Having to steal went against her own moral code, but she had no choice, and she always tried to steal from those she felt could afford it, and told herself it was only temporary (even though it got harder and harder to stop the deeper in she got). That, at least, laid easier on her conscience!

Healing abilities. She couldn't save her parents with them, as she can't heal illness, but when it comes to healing broken bones and cuts? She's fabulous at it, and kept her siblings alive that way. |: However, she can't heal herself, and healing other people really taxes her strength, more depending on the severity of the wound, since she has to lend her own strength and energy to the process.

Gwendolyn - the woman that captured her. Khero quite hates her.

Has a 13-year-old sister and 15-year-old brother.

Khero was 13 when her parents died of illness, leaving her alone with her 8-year-old brother and 6-year-old sister.

With no other family to look to, they had to make do on the streets of Cerenis, Serendipity. As the oldest, Khero adopted the parental roll, and took to petty thievery to keep them all alive.

As Khero grew older, and more mature, she started to entertain dreams of starting her own business. She never liked to steal, and always felt horrible for it, and told herself that once she'd saved up enough money, she'd start up a business and earn an honest living. Or something! Truth be told, she wasn't even sure how to go about looking for honest work, much less how to start a business or what it would be! She thought about going into healing and practicing medicine, though, since it was already something she was pretty good at.

Those dreams came crashing down, however, one terrible morning when a group of slavers found she and her siblings, sleeping in an alley. No one would miss a group of dirty street rats, right? Khero managed to fight just long enough for her brother and sister to escape, but she was taken in the process.

Khero was taken to Adela, and she has no idea where her siblings went. It's been a week since she was taken, a week to get from Cerenis into Adela, where she is due to be sold.
