What is your character's personality?
Rhiadi is reserved, friendly, confident, organized, simple, and likes to help others where she can. She rarely gets visibly excited, but usually has a cheerful attitude.
What things does she like?
Teaching, Card Games, Strategy Board Games, Classical Cyantian Music, Small Quiet Gatherings
Laziness in her students, as shown by either their unwillingness to put in the work to achieve what they want, or by setting their goals well below their potential. She takes a particular dislike to those who would leech off others.
People who are flashy but fake.
Being interrupted during times of study.
What are the strong points of your character?
Strong confident upbeat personality and high aptitude in math, sciences and languages
Little physical presence (tends to get lost in background), little technical aptitude.
Name one thing your character would never do and why.
Rhiadi would never belittle another person. She is sensitive to the feelings of others. (She will call out people acting in shallow or hypocritical ways, though.)
Rhiadi would also never try to take the spotlight. She prefers the sidelines and doesn't like a lot of attention.
How does she interact with others?
Rhiadi's tutoring technique focuses on having the person work through problems step by step, with guidance as needed. This forces the other person to think about the material.
Rhiadi is polite and upbeat, thoughtful in her comments and usually encouraging in what she tells other people. She doesn't often display strong emotions, however.
She is good at keeping secrets in most cases. The exceptions are cases where the secret is harmful, such as a major medical issue or potentially dangerous actions someone has planned. In these cases, she usually tries to encourage the person to speak up (or to give up the dangerous plan).
In personal matters, however, she prefers to stay out of it, aside from giving advice. She will try to intervene if she strongly suspects a harmful secret being kept. Again, though, she would first try to encourage the person to let someone in authority know, and to handle the situation.
She will call out those she feels are being insincere or emotionally abusive. She will place herself between a bully and their victim should it seem necessary, telling them to back off. If this is not an option, she will seek help, with security being at the top of the list. Aside from stepping between an abuser and the abused, she won't act aggressively.
What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at?
Excellent teacher, enjoys studying various useful languages, and keeping track of science. She enjoys playing card games and strategy games in her spare time.
MENTION if they carry some sort of weapon.
Give an example description of your character.
White female mouse with straight short cropped light brown hair and emerald eyes, 4'8" with moderately petite build. Rhiadi tends to wear simple clothing in subdued shades of color, with earthy brown being a favorite color.
What qualities or traits does your character have that would be useful to the Mars Academy currently, or in the future when it becomes a colony? This includes skills, and for those that would need to apply, qualifications.
Rhiadi is a highly effective teacher with a strong grasp of the sciences and language skills.
Why does your character want to be at the Academy rather than at another Academy, or some other location?
Primarily the fact that language plays a much more important role in Mars Academy.
What goals does your character have for the future?
Rhiadi wants to help as many as she can to achieve their fullest potential, with self-sufficiency being a good measure.
She would like to learn the flute when she has time.
Leikki is a special project as she believes she can build his confidence so that he doesn't constantly second-guess his ability to interact with others.
What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of his/her species?
There are Mice who are good, decent people, and those who are not. She takes them on an individual basis, as a first look doesn't tell you which a certain person might be. As Wolf culture is very centered on education and doing the honorable thing, she is highly supportive of it. (She grew up in Wolf lands as a citizen.)
What is his or her view on other species?
Like Mice, there are good apples and bad apples of each species. Her opinion is people can learn a lesson from any cultural pasts, good or bad. As such, she refuses to assume anything about a person based on where they came from, and tries to keep an open mind about everyone she meets.
As for specific cultures, she likes the philanthropic nature of the Mounty, but is greatly saddened by the abuses of the Fox government up to a decade ago. However, she believes that societies move on and are capable of change.
Please answer the following in a couple paragraphs: What is your character's history? Who is or was your characters family? What were the important events of your characters past? What kind of life did they have before they arrived at the academy?
Rhiadi grew up in the Wolf states the eldest of 4 children. Her father employed as a physics professor. He emphasized the importance of learning in achieving ones goals, and took an active interest in Rhiadi's schooling. While Rhiadi was a quick study and didn't need a lot of help, her father's warm encouragement pushed her to try to reach her full potential. Rhiadi enjoyed learning and her father gave her his full support, no matter what she decided to pursue.
She developed a love of languages at the age of 10, when she befriended a Fox girl who had moved into her school, a Fox who taught her Khaasi. Her friend was often ridiculed and occasionally bullied. Rhiadi stood beside her friend, and suffered many of the same things. Because of this, she feels compelled to help when she sees others in a similar situation.
At the age of 13-14, she began to help classmates who sometimes struggled with some of the classes. Until now, she hadn't considered teaching as a profession, but she enjoyed helping others to understand the coursework. Her father encouraged her new found interest in teaching proud to have a fellow educator in the family.
Her placement tests showed high aptitude in the sciences and linguistics, and after graduating, she was accepted into a prestigious academy in the fields of education and linguistics, taking science courses as an additional teaching field. She continued helping fellow students learn the material in the meantime. At the age of 20, she received her basic teaching degree, and qualified to teach basic linguistics, mathematics, and science.
After graduating with honors, she opted to continue her education, and chose Mars Academy because of the unique role languages played there. She is currently pursuing an education masters, and supplementing the coursework with advanced science and math classes. She uses money from tutoring to support herself at the academy.
Her parents still live in a major city in Wolf territory, close to a major academy.
Her oldest sister is 18, and taking introductory classes for a medical major at another academy.
Her brother is 16, and about to graduate with honors. He is interested in engineering.
Her youngest sister is 15 and has a year to go, and is on her way to graduation with honors, and wants to be a botanist.
Rhiadi has recently made a project out of Leikki, desiring to bolster his confidence. She's rather fond of him.
