Kendo is the only club Kalaya has time to participate in because she still trains and competes in MMA fights on occasion.Personality/Background:
Kalaya is considered by traditional types to be a "tomboy" because of both her more muscled figure and her love for fighting or more specifically Mixed Martial Arts. Kalaya has always been passionate about martial arts and competitions. This makes her unafraid, outspoken, and strong willed. These combined traits are what have fueled the tomboy label. Kalaya doesn't fight the label and just focuses on being herself. She has a good mind for business and an aptitude for being a leader. She is also brave and never backs down from a conflict.
Kalaya is the third generation of her family to live in Japan. Her great-grandparents traveled from Thailand to Japan because they wanted a different opportunity for their family. They were not alone when they traveled from their culturally colorful homeland of Thailand and there are decently sized neighborhoods full of Thai expats in Japan.
Kalaya's upbringing was filled with a whole lot of family. Since, in Thailand, multiple generations tended to live together under one roof, her family didn't think moving to Japan would mean a change for that practice. Because she had tons of family around all of the time, from grandparents to uncles to cousins, Kalaya never had much personal space and is used to having all kinds of opinions shoved in her face and also enormous amounts of food because her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother seem to do nothing but cook, with more cooking, and yet more cooking still for the 50 plus members of her extended family that are almost always around.
As a non-Japanese living in Japan, Kalaya faced some racial discrimination and frequently got into altercations over them. This began in her elementary school years and this is what sparked her passion for martial arts. From that point on, Kalaya begged and pleaded with her parents to let her attend a martial arts class. At the time, Kalaya's father was still getting his small business (a small Thai restaurant called Bampot Kitchen
) started and so the family couldn't afford the traditional martial arts schools in Japan. However, Kalaya's uncle was a Muay Thai boxer and he had absolutely no problem with teaching his niece the national sport of their homeland. Thus, Muay Thai boxing became Kalaya's first martial art.
By the time Kalaya was fourteen however, her family's financial situation was more improved and after getting tired of their daughter's relentless begging, they paid for Kalaya to begin training in Kendo. She still practiced Muay Thai but also enjoyed the challenge of learning an entirely different discipline.
Kalaya's whole world can seem to evolve around being physically fit. She most often wears exercise clothing, tank tops, shorts, yoga pants, tennis shoes, versus super girly things like skirts or dresses (outside of school). That's not to say Kalaya won't wear a dress (and obviously in school she has to conform to the uniform standards) but she knows what she's comfortable in and doesn't let fashion magazines dictate what she should wear.
Kalaya's passion for fighting does not make her angry or mean. She is confident in her abilities as a fighter and possesses a teasing wit that those who are acquainted with her often see. Guys and girls alike might consider this wit a form of flirtation and it might very well be, but it can be a challenge fitting into her crowded world.Likes:

Animal abusers, being underestimated, cigarettes, bad drivers, assholesSpecial Powers: Precognition
, Sailor Uranus can potentially anticipate possible major/shaping events of a person. Usually this happens in the way of dreams but can also sometimes happen with direct contact with a person who is expected to experience something significant. All visions are possibilities though because the future is never set. Flight
, Sailor Uranus can soar through the skies. She can leap into flight or jump off of high platforms to achieve it for short periods of flight. If Sailor Uranus uses Shockwave while descending from being in flight (ie: she plummets to the ground) the effected area of the attack will be expanded (which is great for fighting against large groups of combatants).Shockwave
, as her main attack, Sailor Uranus can summon the powers of her crystal and plunge her fist into the earth. This sends out an earth-rending shockwave of energy that tears through the crust of the planet towards her unfortunate nemesis.Weapon:
A single, broad-bladed Dha which is a Thai sword, very similar to a machete. Sailor Uranus' dha is gold or bronze looking with colored gems embedded in the pommel.Guardian:
Miranda is an Egyptian Mau
and has the breed's lovely spotted coat. They are lanky cats and are considered very exotic. Egyptian Mau's also have pretty almond shaped, jade colored eyes.
Miranda has an outgoing personality. She is very social (intrusive
) and prides herself on being a both a companion and personal alarm clock. She is doting and loves all members of her family, though she tends to be cautious initially with strangers. If she does like someone a lot, she will often ride on their shoulders or become a refrigerator vulture so that she can pounce on them when they least expect it. Overall she is incredibly curious and fiercely loyal to her loved ones.
If absolutely necessary, Miranda can transform into the form of her ancestor breed - a leopard.
