There is not an art or craft that a Menehune is not proficient in. While the certainly specialize in a few crafts that they really enjoy they are fully capable of crafting beautiful pieces of art and architecture. Menehune are incredibly fast at whatever project they are working on and when working with other Menehune they can build entire structures in a nightís time.
Crafting Weakness: This increased speed only happens when non-Menehune are not looking. Menehune are fickle with their projects and if they cannot finish it within a nightís time they lose interest and leave the project unfinished.
Menehune are magical creatures. They cannot cast spells like a wizard or a witch, but they can imbue specially crafted items with magic that they use to cast spells.
Artificing Weakness: If a Menehune does not have the item on their person they cannot use the spell within.
Menehune are shy creatures by nature and have the ability to turn invisible at will.
Invisibility Weakness: A Menehune can only turn invisible of another intelligent creature is not looking at it.I am into::.

Menehune are traditionally a shy race and really Kelani is no different in that regard. She has certainly learned to work with others and even enjoys the company of other races, but still she does love to spend time alone working on her own projects and does not tend to seek out the company of strangers. She is kind and helpful to her students, but a bit of a pacifist. Kelani prefers to talk through problems instead of fight through them. She will not attack another race unless she needs to protect herself or her students, in which case she pulls no punches even resulting in damaging magic if the situation is life or death. Thankfully that has never happened. Away from the classroom Kelani is inquisitive about any creative endeavor and enjoys the occasional prank or two on unexpecting faculty or college age students.If You Must Know::.
Kelani is wary of some of the more violently inclined races. Her race has lived in hiding for much of their existence, it is a survival trait that has served them well, so putting herself near other potentially dangerous races goes against her long engrained racial memory. Kelani is more comfortable around humans and Fae, seeing the Fae races as being closely related to the Menehune.We All Have Our Story::.
Kelaniís family has old royal blood in her veins. Most would think that it is from the ancient Hawaiian kings and Queens, but in reality it is much older. The Menehune lived on the Hawaiian islands long before the people that would be Hawaiianís pulled their Māliaía onto the sandy beaches of the islands. Kelani is a member of the Menehune royal family. Why those outside of Hawaii think that is a big deal she doesnít really know, but it seems to mean a lot to the families that founded the school.
It may seem strange that the Menehune, a notoriously shy species of supernatural creature would send one of their daughters to a school dedicated to bringing the existence of the supernatural to light in the modern day and you would be right. Many of the Menehune felt it was a really bad idea, but Kelaniís parents argued that it was going to happen with their participation or without and it might be best to have someone they trusted attend and tell them what it was like. Besides it is plenty far away from Hawaii and most people still think of the Menehune as folk and fairy tale. Once her collective people calmed down, not an easy thing when an idea goes against a core reality of your existence, they allowed Kelani to attend the school.
She was of course a painfully shy student for her first few years, but gradually managed a few friends and ultimately enjoyed her time at the school. Sure there were trying times and as expected there were groups of creatures that felt superior to others and the cliques were probably a thousand times worse than a human high school, but she survived and even thrived (with only one display of power to keep the worst of the students looking for easier prey). Through it all she remained a pleasant smile and happy demeanor and continued her college level courses at the school where the students were more mature and even more dangerous. When Kelani graduated she felt the school needed a calming presence, one that did not breed paranoia among the most distrustful races or appear a threat to the softer, squishier races. She applied for the positions of Professor of Arts and Professor of Charms. Much to her surprise she was given both jobs. This will be her first semester as a professor at the school, but many of the faculty and even some of the students will be familiar with her from her time as a student and grad student.Just Their Smile::.
