Name: She's got a lot of names, but the one she's using lately that's easiest to say is Kura.
Age: Technically she was created in a place where time has no meaning, so really, she's ageless...but she appears to be about 21 or 22
Species: Goddess (lower-level)
Appearance: At first glance, while it isn't clear that Kura isn't of this realm, it's clear that she's...strange. She stands at about five foot three or so in her bare feet, and she's all pale white skin and dark, dark red hair; it's only in the right lights that it's clear that her hair isn't a dark shade of brown. Everything about her seems delicate, breakable; she gives the impression of being made of glass, from her skinny limbs to the way she walks like she thinks she should be floating. Her face is fine-boned and, like the rest of her, seems delicate, like she should bruise in a stiff breeze. Large, dark blue eyes set a little deeply take up most of her face, rimmed with thick black eyelashes. Her lips are soft pink, and she bites them as a nervous habit when she's not paying close attention. Her hair is smooth and gently wavy, hitting at just past her shoulders; she usually lets it hang loose, but when she needs to get it out of the way, she braids it.
As far as her clothes go, at the start, Kura is dressed in...well. Not much. A long, winding piece of shimmery silver cloth that wraps around her several times. In general, she likes soft things to wear and dress in (really, soft things in general, ha ha) and she's not particularly picky as to what she wears.
When Kura slips out of her mortal self and into her goddess being, she looks...entirely different, and yet much the same. She glows softly when she goes into her power, her eyes a bright and cutting blue and her skin an almost painful white. She adds an extra joint to her limbs, giving her a spindly, eerie look, as well as more dexterity. Her fingers lengthen and gain little spines that allow her to climb up walls, and she loses most of her body weight, sucking her skin closer to her bones, leaving her looking like a skeleton with a little flesh and some space for her organs. She becomes much stronger, despite the thinness of her frame, and can carry up to five times her weight. She is also nearly unstoppable in her goddess form, though the wounds she accrues will harm her greatly when she returns to her "maiden" self.
Personality: Kura was only created for the purpose of stopping a war between the humans and dragons a short time ago (since she was born in the realm of the gods, where there is no time, she's not sure how long ago that was...but she knows it's been a relatively short time), but in this time, she's progressed enormously; she learns about humanity and dragonkind whenever she sleeps, meaning that even if she's only lived a little while, she's learned enough for longer. That doesn't necessarily means she knows what it all means, or how to use her knowledge... But she's excited to actually live her life, now that she has it. She's enthusiastic and naive, believing strongly in ideals and excited to actually get to walk around in the world she's been dreaming about for the few years of her life. She's kind without thinking of it, in part because that's what she was designed to be and in part because it's just her.
When she shifts into her goddess self, though, all of that is gone, replaced by cold calculations and an animalistic drive to survive. The goddess self is designed as a way to keep herself alive in times of extreme danger, and it has little notion of anything that isn't attacking or fleeing. She can't usually remember much about being in her goddess self, meaning that when she goes back to her 'maiden' self, she can remember vague blurs and general concepts, but no details.
History: Kura was "created" a short time ago by the Forces that Be, ((lame name for the overarching deities, I know. DX)) who designed her to stop the coming war between the dragons and the humans, since they love both peoples equally and must not favor one over the other. She stayed in the Otherrealm for her entire life up until the present, learning what she could of the rules of this realm from the upper-level deities before she was sent down. She really doesn't have much in the way of history, really...just future, ha ha.
Special Talents: The goddess form has already been mentioned as a form she slips into in times of physical danger in order to protect herself and ensure her survival. She can't choose to go into her goddess self; it comes over her with or without her permission. In her goddess self, she's faster, stronger, and more magical; she can lift about five times her weight and leap very high distances.
In her maiden self, her powers are there, but much more...graceful. She can levitate small things, nothing heavier than about twenty pounds, and she can heal wounds, though she can't bring someone back from the brink of death. She can heal broken bones or organs, however. She also glows very slightly in the dark, enough that someone may think that it's a trick of the light if he doesn't know better. Anyone with any magical ability can also see that she's constantly radiating a steady level of magic, and she uses that to create small bursts of energy as a minor attack. If it's drained, she must recuperate by sleeping until her magic reaches normal levels again. This normally takes about 24 hours or so.
Other: Kura can sometimes speak to the Forces that Be, but only when they wish to speak to her and give her some direction. Upon coming to this realm, she lost most memory of the details of the Otherrealm, recalling little other than the physics of this realm and the vague sense that she has a Greater Purpose...even if she doesn't remember any details. She knows she needs to stop a war between the humans and dragons, but she doesn't know how and she barely knows why.
