Cooking, Farming, Working with Children & Animals, Leadership, Sewing, Intelligence...can do some basic fighting.Personality:
Kayla is very sweet and generous to those who deserve it, but can be dangerous and scary to those who don't. She has a true redheaded temper, but it takes a lot for her to get really angry. Most of the time it's just little tantrums that go away in a few minutes. She's intelligent, but very much in her own little world most of the time. She also has more book smarts than common sense, but the viral outbreak has forced her to have both. She is witty and funny, but often awkward. She is almost naively fearless, but she has very strong opinions on certain things that she doesn't like. She is creative and resourceful, and more of a problem "fixer." She can be a bit of a drama queen, but she's not selfish or greedy....simply charismatic and a lover of attention. She is naturally flirty and sensual, but more of a tease. She doesn't often follow through with her teasing.
She is very motherly, and as her father is the leader of the group, she has taken over the mothering role to a certain extent. She will always defend and care for those around her. She isn't the traditional sweet and quiet girl, as she is extroverted and friendly...but she is surprisingly domestic. She can cook, clean, sew and care for anything. If something needs to be done, she'll either do it or learn how. She is a bookworm, but as supplies are limited, she has to settle for a few of her old books that she managed to grab...and writing in journals that she keeps. She is inventive and can make almost anything, especially as her dad is a handyman.
Family is very important to her, and when her father had to shoot her mother, her heart broke. For a long time, she wouldn't talk to anyone, and many worried that she'd never come out of her depression. However, she knew her mother wouldn't want her to sit around and sulk while the world needed her, so she snapped out of it and is now her father's right hand man...well, woman. She loves her father dearly, and as they are the only ones the other has, she is very close to him.
Born and raised in a small town, she is definitely more of a rural girl than a city girl. She prefers the wilderness and wide open spaces to anywhere with too many people. Of course, now everyone wanted to be rural, as cities were hotbeds for the infected. She can be overly trusting, but she's trying to work on that, as in this world you have to be wary of everyone.Bio:
Born to Brian and Susan Connors 20 years ago, she was a precocious and lovable child. Although she was never spoiled, she never wanted for anything, and had as much love and support as she could want. She was always a daddy's girl, but she was very close to her mother as well. She made straight A's in school and was well-liked, although she could be a bit of a loner...preferring time with her family and books than that of parties and the like.
When the virus hit, she was at college (majoring in English), but came home right away. She had to witness her father shooting her mother. Although she knew it was his only option, she also still had nightmares about it. After her depression eased, she helped her dad however she could, and now she is an integral part of the team.
