Physical Description

Kara stands just below average height at 5', and weighs a modest 97 lbs. Her body is pear-shaped, with wide hips and B-cup breasts. Her body is fit and toned from rigorous training. She has a rounded face with full lips, and small, pointed ears. Her golden eyes are almond-shaped, and her skin is a rich azure color. When on duty, she wears her jet-black hair in a single braid that reaches down to the center of her back, but she normally drapes it over her right shoulder so as not to interfere with the SPINE interface.

Kara's voice could be described as somewhat low in pitch (think Angelina Jolie), and she loves to wear perfumes with a light, floral scent.

Personality

During socialization training, Kara was found to be very energetic and outgoing; an alpha-personality with a slight tendency to act in a “motherly” fashion to those of lower rank within her “pack”. However, it was also noted that this excess energy could also lead to impulsive, cocky, aggressive and even abrasive behavior, coupled with a competitive streak. This “if you're not first, you're last” attitude caused very poor reactions to failure, such as anger and aggression. Much of the negative aspects of her personality were tampered down in basic training, where she learned how to deal with failure and mistakes in a more healthy fashion, and how to be a team player. But sitting just below the surface of military discipline, her old ways remain; sedated, but not entirely gone.

Likes: Martial arts, competition, gambling, moving at dangerously-high speeds, rock music, cute animals, children, pomegranates, humor, dressing nice, and the color of gold.

Dislikes: Sitting still for extended periods, classical music, caffeinated drinks, cooking, passive-aggressiveness, suck-ups, failure, and isolation.

Goals: Have a few epic adventures with a family to call her own, whether that be her crew or otherwise.

History

Kara “Gravity” Sifsdottir was born in YE 39.

Kara was created on Planet Yamatai by Ketsurui Zaibatsu in early YE 39. Her energetic and sometimes abrasive attitude made the early stages of military training difficult, but she eventually learned to control herself after several long hours of push-ups and cleaning the barracks. She excelled at and even enjoyed her hand-to-hand combat training, with her love of competition and aggressive nature, but wasn't the best with firearms. With this in mind, her superiors came to the conclusion that she was a natural-born fighter pilot.

She was not.

She could fly, sure, but… not at the level required to operate a fighter in a dog-fighting scenario. The inherent instability of a fighter craft made her wobbly in flight. There was even an instance during an atmospheric exercise where she momentarily forgot that she was not in a vacuum and thus couldn't simply bring the craft to a full stop in mid-air. Gravity did it's job, and while she recovered from the stall, her new nickname stuck, and it was decided that she should find a different career path.

Kara fell into a slump, unsure of where to go. She wasn't very good at fixing things, hated the monotony of computer work and logistics, she didn't want to spend her days in a foxhole, and she wasn't the best fighter pilot. But she still wanted to fly, darn it!

Then, one day, she was given a chance to step into a Fuji-class Expeditionary Gunship simulator. She didn't have the experience of other starship operators, but after feeling the heavenly sensation of her weight shifting when she boosted the ship's powerful engines to maximum, she knew that this…

…This was home.

Social Connections

Skills Learned

Military Training

Starship Operations

Kara has received intensive instruction in the piloting of large vessels, most notably the Fuji-class. She has just over 1000 hours logged with this type of craft, and is competent in combat scenarios.

She also has some experience with smaller crafts, such as fighters, but does not have the proficiency of a fully-trained fighter pilot.

Fighting

Kara has taken up martial arts as a hobby, finding immense pleasure in the competitive aspect as well as the adrenaline rush. Her favorite style is Neju Koyu, which she melds together with her Star Army close combat training. While she's just a beginner, she's always willing to learn something new from more experienced practitioners, or spar with friends.

Entertainment

Kara is an extremely upbeat and outgoing personality. She loves to bring light to any situation, no matter how dark, and always has a joke on hand. She's also not beyond the occasional prank or two. She's an excellent conversationalist, and always willing to listen to a friends' issues.

Domestic

Since creation, Kara has had a deep love of children, and they in turn love her pleasant nature. Kara can be trusted around children, as she knows how to keep them happy and tend to their basic needs, and will absolutely destroy anyone who means to do them harm.

Communication

While in the Ayenee universe, Kara was sent on a mission to reunite dragons with their long-lost descendants. In the process, she got to actually meet a dragon. Dragons do not have a spoken or written language, and one must interpret their motives and emotions by careful examination of their movements. Kara spent time learning- through trial and error- the dragons' ways.
