: Caraina is a petite cat with a slim and lean build . She doesn't harbor any noticeable muscles on her body. She's built more for speed than strength if anything. Her tan brown hair falls to down to her shoulder blades. Her body's fur is wheat colored in contrast to her tan colored hair. Her ears have the Caracal's signature tufts of hair at the end. Her tail starts off matching the color of her hair and then fades into her fur's wheat hue and fading back into tan at the end of it's 3.5 ft length. Her stand out attribute would probably be her wide bright sky blue expressive eyes. Above those eyes on her forehead are two curved patches of tan fur, one on each side of her forehead. They're typically cover by her bangs and the tiara she wears.
Caraina doesn't dress like a typical thief. Instead she dresses in frilly clothing with puffy sleeves and even wears a jeweled tiara that adorns her head. On her hands are a pair of blue fingerless gloves and golden bangles worn on her wrists. Her dressing style could give the false impression of her being of an important high class family and that is exactly the reason she wears them. An attempt to open a window of opportunities and to be retreated with respect. Speaking of windows, there's a reason for the breast window on her top. It's easier to pickpocket if a male's eyes are focused on something else. This is something she has learned.Personality
: Caraina has a cute, bubbly and hyperactive persona. Yeah, mostly she is labeled falsely as just a ditz, but of course theres more to her than that. Caraina isn't stupid at all. She is a feisty charmer with an ever present gleam in her eyes. Naturally, she uses this charm to manipulate whatever situation she's in towards her favor. Whether it's getting others to do her bidding or trying to wiggle her way out of a tough spot. She views herself as a sexy cat and proficient thief that is able to con and scheme her targets out of whatever is in their possession that she's got her eyes on. Heck, even if Caraina is caught red handed, she will still smile knowingly that she will inevitably discover a way off the hook.
Although she is a thief who gets through life by lying and tricking others, Caraina is not at all a completely horrible cat. Sometimes she is even prone to perform heroic deeds. She doesn't steal because she wants
to...well, okay, she does, but the only reason she steals in the first place is because it's the only way she's known how to survive growing up. Those who actually spend enough time around her will actually discover that she is indeed a reliable ally and caring friend. It should be mentioned that she does have a habit of showing off the dark humor she possess under that cute and happy facade. It's also really subtle warning sign in that Caraina shouldn't be brushed off or taken lightly because she's small and isn't a typical warrior. If she wants to mess someone up and teach them that lesson, rest assured she will find a way to do it and it will be in a way to make the lesson stick to her victim's memories.Likes

: She purrs whenever she's hugged and she can't help it. After losing her parents at a young age, she appreciates any kind of compassion she receives. She likes the warm feeling it gives. She's also a klepto for nearly anything blue. Hell, she'd probably even take someone's blue eyes from their sockets if it wasn't so creepy and gross. She's also claustrophobic. Trap her in a tiny area and she will freak out. She will also freak out if a bug crawls on her.Talents
: She's an exceptional gymnast, and because she is a thief, naturally, she's stealthy and good at swiping things. Her charm can also be a gift too as well as her ability to wield daggers. She's a pretty good fighter. She may not be as good as those who have been formerly trained and disciplined in martial arts, but she knows how to use her skills and wits to hold her own long enough to make an escape. She's got a nice set of pipes too that allows her to sing beautifully and a graceful set of arms and legs that makes her a good dancer. If she's not stealing, she will perform on the streets to actually earn her money....but stealing is preferred as comes with more thrills and earns her more stuff.Occupation
: Caraina once belonged to a well established family. While they weren't extremely wealthy, they were at least of upper middle class status. Her parents had a love of traveling the world, which provided a fascinating life in her younger years. While camping outside the kingdom of Thundera. Their camp was approached by a group of lizard mutant bandits. Listening to her mother's advice to hide, Caraina hid up in a tree. Only at the tender age of 9, she watched the savage murdering of her mother and father. A seed of hate for the mutant race was planted in her that day.
Caraina found her way back to Thundera, as it was not located too far from where her family had taken their last vacation. And so she used the only talent she knew to survive: stealing. She started out by just stealing small things. Just food so she wouldn't starve and as she grew older, she moved on to swiping more precious items. The very daggers she carries with her today were part of her more daring thefts, which she pulled on a palace guard. A her courage grew, she began to even break into the King's palace for items.
Naturally, with the palace and other places being heavily guarded, Caraina had her run ins with soldiers. She didn't just learn how to steal, but she learned how to fight. Now her days are pretty much spent stealing and trying to avoid jail.Weapon(s)
: Twin Daggers; KatarsSpecial Ability
: Acrobatics. Yes, she has daggers on hand but her gymnast skills is her true weapon in fights and being able to evade capture. Her motor skills are superb and allow her to flip, bend and swing flawlessly making her able to dodge most normal attacks and objects with relative ease. She hardly blocks punches and kicks when her body is flexible and quick enough to just bend backward to avoid it or just flip away completely.Style
: Caraina spends more of her time running away from a fight than actually participating in them. However, when the time does come for her to fight, her style can almost be described as more of a dance with Her graceful movements. She likes to incorporate a lot of flips in her moves. If she ends a flip kick on the floor in a split, it's not her showing off, it's just how she fights. Since she doesn't have the muscle mass to inflict heavy damage with her punches and kicks, she spends most of her time just dodging until her opponent is exhausted. When she wants to inflict serious damage, that is usually when her daggers come into play. Caraina also uses her surroundings. Running up walls and jumping onto and off of objects in her surrounding is a common thing in her fighting since she pretty much does it on a daily basis.
