Lady Kaia Bisland
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
Description: Petite and lovely; this young lady possesses a fair complexion and a slender curvy body. She inherited her flawless rosy fair skin from her mother’s side; and, a beautiful mane of long, soft and silky wavy tresses of a dark brown shade - which are usually adorned by luxurious and exotic ornaments that hint a glimpse of her personality. Her gentle mouth is doted with heavy lower lips, that blend well with her fine dainty nose and striking big blue-grey eyes. Overall, she’s a simple beauty; and, her stride and movements as supple and elegant as it’s expected from a noble of her class.
(Kaia's hair has been carefully stylized into a half-up half-down up-do with braids and carefully placed wavy strands falling to both sides to frame her delicate face. Her lips have been gently tinted with a soft red-rosy shade.)
Personality: Kaia takes after her mother in many ways: particularly in the aspects of organization and a sharp eye for aesthetics and all that requires being creative. At her young age she is found to be a very competent and insightful intellectual that relies mostly on reason, knowledge and intuition when it is time to act. One would agree that she would make a reliable subject to take care of diplomatic affairs - if guided properly through the upcoming years. She has come to be known by many for her devotion and generosity; and, though sometimes she may appear to be a bit self-centered, in truth she's a kind-hearted and frisky spirit that looks up to the world and everything around her as an opportunity for gaining knowledge and adventure. She values honesty and is often very courteous to those around her - yet, she's not afraid to speak her mind and be straight-forward and feisty with her retorts if needed. However, as daring and witty as she may be, her flaws are laid empty when it comes down to the matters of the heart. She's a naive sucker for love; and therefore, a victim of it and the perils it brings with it -especially if she's against the compelling bad-boy sort of type.
Background: The youngest daughter of Samael and Sabitha Bisland. Showered in wealth and a long military heritage, Lady Kaia Bisland --just like her eldest sister, had the finest education growing up. Her father was one of the finest lawyers in the Compact, which does, of course, mean that he wasn't around very much. For her mother, life was a constant flurry of social occasion and diplomacy. She spent most of her younger years in Pridehall, apart from the occasional trip, with Sabitha and Zoey, to the Oathlands to visit their Laurent cousins.
Her chatty spirited nature contrasted to that of her quiet and soft-spoken sister. Who -unlike her- would spend long hours of study in the library, along with their cousin Lailah –in hopes to toss aside her fears of not measuring up to the Bisland firstborn standards and expectations.
The sister’s relationship was a good and healthy one. If Kaia was ever in trouble, she knew she could confidently trust on Zoey to have her back and protect her. Nonetheless, she’d suffer her sister’s occasional exasperation and _’THE LOOK’_ if she followed her for far too long. Leading her to keep her distance as well as trying to give her sister as much privacy as her frisky nature would allow her --in hopes of avoiding being a constant nuisance. Overall, Zoey was the perfect role-model for Kaia -who loved and admired her deeply. Still, there were times in which she would toss all that aside, only to become her cousin Michael’s partner in crime, when it came to pranks.
Not pressured at all by the weight of being a Bisland firstborn; and, caring too little for the family’s long list of formalities, she would often sneak out into the Pridehall gardens where she would find herself daydreaming about the: adventures, fabled romances and faraway places she had only read about in the less scholarly books.
When she was 16, her sister Zoey moved to the city of Arx. The distance made it hard to communicate; still, they made it work. It wasn’t long before she got word of her sister’s engagement to one of the Kennex’s. She was happy for her sister; but also, reasonably and genuinely apprehensive with the recent development. Having her parents, horrible, marriage as a direct example; she had grown to be a bit apathetic regarding the concept and nature of the noble’s wedlock –and yet, she hoped that when the time came for her and her sister to take part on the dreadful -but necessary- ceremony, they might get lucky enough to correspond their respective suitors.
Two years passed, before she was finally summoned to the city of Arx. In the aftermath of the Lodge, duty to the family called: securing economical and financial positions, assisting to the minor tasks offloaded onto the rest of the family, etc.; she was instructed to journey fast and settle in the Bisland Manor located in the Grayson’s district. It was a fact, she had already come of age and was old enough to take part on the dreaded marriage market. Now that she was in Arx, she expected to be of use to the family; but more than so, she hoped to find more about herself and her inner desires. The Society of Explorers certainly seemed like a good start.
She used to have a secret crush for Killian Ashford since the first time she saw him during his stay in Bisland as a squire; although, he never learned of it. Naturally, when she arrived to Arx and news of his death reached her she was a little overwhelmed; but she got over it quickly.

|Aiden||A cousin of mine from the House of Bisland. It's been a while since I've seen her and I really hope she doesn't prove me wrong about shooting herself in the foot with an arrow. It's good to see yet another of the Bisland family coming to the city to become more active in the Compact. I do admire her humor and her understanding of responsibility.|

|Dariel||My lovely and also sympathetic cousin who most certainly deserves a more enjoyable nights out!|

|Domonico||Kaia Bisland. Cousin to the scholarly Lailah. Attractive, diplomatic and rather easily embaressed it seems.|
|Emrys||Once a student, now a Lady of age and a newly minted explorer. Some would dismiss the courtly arts with such in mind, yet not her, and for good reason. It always pays to be polite when knocking on the door of the unknown.|
|Erik||Lady Kaia is great company for an evening of drinks and light conversation, she has a penchant for adventures, which is always welcome. I'd love to her about her future exploits at the Society of Explorers.|

|Luca||She carries a beautiful blade. What can I say, I'm a sword man. I can't say if it suits her seemingly sunny disposition, but maybe I'll find out one day. She's skilled enough in easing herself into conversation like she'd always been there. Perhaps she's just as subtle with a weapon?|
|Maddox||A young and somewhat starstruck lass, new to the city. She is a bit bright eyed, and young at heart, but refreshing. I am hoping that we will become close friends.|
|Magnus||Lady Kaia is an explorer to the bone! Always eager to know more about distant lands, she has a talent for creating maps, which might come useful when I want to map my own lands. In return, maybe I can show her the best Bonespire has to offer to an avid explorer.|

|Saverio||Very familiar, though never be mislead that the familiar can not also be dangerous.|
|Sebastian||We met under rather unusual circumstances. Well -- quite normal circumstances with odd accompaniment. It would be poor form of me to judge her from that one event, especially as she seems to have weathered it well.|
|Selene||The lady has an easy, sunny sensibility about her. How very hard not to laugh when enjoying her company! Her sense of humor readily comes to the fore, and someone who can take the world in stride with a warm giggle or rejoinder to a joke will go far.|
|Sophie||Well, sometimes you meet someone and you declare. "This person will be my friend!" I did, and she is. Simple enough.|
