attlashands said: Kaila for the OC Meme! :D
1. The color of their eyes: Green. Like really fucking green.
2. How old they are: 29 at the start of Mass Effect 1, so 32ish by Mass Effect 3.
3. One strange thing/quirk/defining characteristic of their body or physical appearance: She has a tattoo of a three poppies on the left side of her back—the flowers start just below her shoulder blade and the stems/petals wrap around her ribs a little bit with a couple of the petals in the process of falling off. Her dad’s DOB and DOD, and Ash’s DOB and DOD are written out next to it.
4. One strange thing/quirk/defining characteristic of their personality: Despite what you might think, her being the savior of the galaxy and all, she’s pretty quiet by nature. When Kaila was younger, you were more likely to find her in her room fiddling with tech than out partying. As an adult, however, she learned that she has to sometimes be loud to be heard, but requires some quiet down time to just be herself.
5. How their parents met: Both her parents were Alliance, and met on a group “date” out to a local dive. They started to chat and hit it off right away.
6. Who their first love was, and why they loved them: There was a boy named Matt that worked on her grandparent’s farm when she was 16 that she was head over heels for. They stayed close after she signed up, but she knew he didn’t want to get mixed up with Alliance, so she decided to end it with him.
7. How/why I came up with the concept for them: Kaila is one of those characters that I did put a lot of me into. Her background (Spacer kid) came from being a military kid myself. So when I write about her in that sense, it comes a lot from my own experiences.
8. Who they eventually end up with: Kaidan
9. Their favorite animal: She really likes dogs. Like adores dogs.
10. Two question of your choice – anything you want!
