Xi Li KaiSpecies:
"I swear I won't eat you!" and "Oops! Sorry!"How much experience do you have with role-playing? How much time have you spent on MUSHs/MUXs/etc.?
Just getting started.What is your character's personality?
Friendly, intelligent, outgoing, fairly athletic, playful, impulsive, and somewhat quirky. Dignity goes out the window when it comes to having fun.What things does s/he like?
Music, literature, swimming and athletics, dancing, trying new foods. She also likes warm weather. She's fairly fond of foxes in general, since she was raised by them.Dislike?
Getting sick alarms her, since she's lost so many loved ones to disease. Basically, she's had her entire family wiped out by disease, birth and adopted alike. Someone showing obvious signs of being ill will cause her to take a step back, but not run screaming from the room. Also, she would be fairly concerned about the individual that had taken ill. "Um, maybe you ought to see a doctor about that..." *inches back a couple of steps*
She's annoyed by people looking down upon her, considering how the stereotype of her species tends to portray them as uncivilized.What are the strong points of your character?
She's very determined. She'll work hard to get something she wants. She's friendly and outgoing and as a result became popular pretty fast in her old homes.Weak points?
Xi Li is very impulsive. She occasionally regrets her decisions, though more often she ends up wondering what possible reason she could have had for doing one thing or another. She also has a tendency to get lost.Name one thing your character would never do and why.
Give up the culture of high technology and return to living with native Rifier, since she was raised in this world and among its people.How does s/he interact with others?
Xi Li is friendly and outgoing, and she's moderately affectionate. She is also not above giving someone small enough that she's really close to a ride on her back, though she finds it a bit degrading. If someone were to hurt themselves, for example, she'd be willing to carry them to medical this way. Someone too big would be out of luck, and would get dragged through the halls.What are their abilities, hobbies, things they're good at?
She's multilingual, and she's fairly athletic, and a very good swimmer.MENTION if they carry some sort of weapon.Give an example description of your character.
Standing at about 4' 10" not including her large ears, Xi Li Kai is a pretty Rifier with creamy beige fur and cream colored stripes in intricate patterns. Her toes are cream colored as well. Her fur grows the tiniest bit darker around her green eyes. The backs of her ears are black, with white at the very tips, and the insides are cream colored. She has a cream spot on each side of her muzzle, and her chest and belly, as well as the insides of her legs and arms are lighter in color than the rest of her body, aside from the cream and white areas. She used to dye herself a uniform tan color, but has stopped, in favor of letting her natural pattern show. Her hair is a shade between cream and beige, and comes down against her lower shoulders, though she entertains thoughts of cutting it really short. She's fairly fond of a slightly reddish brown shirt with a tan paisley-like pattern, and other shirts that match her fur. Most of the time she wears nothing. (Her incidence of wearing shirts increased when some technomages gave her a pouch-full of ice cold drinks, complete with ice. For their efforts, the technomages earned a nice set of matching black eyes. That is, after the Rifier sat there with her fur standing on end and one eye twitching.)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.
She is studying to become a linguist, and is multilingual, already fluent in the Rifier language and Khasi, as well as English.Why does your character want to be at the Academy rather than at another Academy, or some other location?
She was told by a wolf that Mars Academy was the best place to be, so she decided that she would go to the best place to be. She knew about other schools, but the prospect of diversity and the idea of being on a developing world were quite appealing to her.What goals does your character have for the future?
Xi Li is fascinated by languages, and wants to find a way to improve the peace between races, hoping that her own unusual species works to her advantage, so that she can be seen as a more neutral party. (After all, they would have a hard time accusing her of siding with her own species, since they will not likely be involved in any politics between the "advanced" races.) She intends to work hard at disproving the stereotype that her species is made up of savages, though that may be hard if she continues to sock prank-playing technomages.What is your characters nature and thoughts on others of his/her species?
She thinks they're a little bit too set in their ways, and that the marvels of technology are greatly under-appreciated.What is his or her view on other species?
They're utterly fascinating. How can they walk on just two legs? Having been raised by foxes, she's quite fond of them. She didn't have an awful lot of experience with other species, as she spent most of her time with the foxes, so she doesn't have fully formed opinions on them. She tends to think that mice are supposed to be smart, wolves are benevolent but meddlesome, and though she doesn't really have a problem with them, she's wary of them, and mounties vary from one region to the next. She wants to learn what they're like while at the academy. Rabbits, rams and the rest haven't really been in her life enough to form opinions on.
As for Jiliac, she's only heard vague descriptions of them, and is admittedly curious about hunting them, but due to being in a more "civilized" society, would not pursue those avenues of curiosity.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?
Xi Li is descended from Rifier slaves in the fox lands, but was not a slave herself. Her parents died when she was very young, and she was raised by a family of orange foxes, as if she were one of their own kits. She insisted on learning both the Rifier language and Khasi of foxes. She also took a great interest in reading and literature. When the fox plague struck, the family raising her perished, leaving her completely alone while the Irincos invaded. Luckily, the invasion didn't reach her, but she decided to move away anyway.
She spent a while living with an impoverished young red fox couple, a time she describes as "enlightening" and refrains from commenting further upon. After spending a few years with them and helping them to raise a couple of kits, she moved on again, this time ending up with a single blue vixen not much older than herself. She began learning English, and a little bit of other languages, and began focusing on becoming a linguist. About the time she was nearing the end of her education, she spoke a wolf who sang the praises of Mars Academy, and she grew determined to further her education. The wolf was a fairly well-trusted acquaintance, but not especially close. Since this wolf declared that Mars Academy was the best of the best, it only strengthened her determination to go there, and when the opportunity came up, she seized it and soon found herself marveling at the wonders of her new Martian home.
By the way, the young red fox couple ended up having a couple of little girls named Kahli and Tahli, and the blue vixen she stayed with went by the name Vivian.
Age 1, parents die of illness, Xi Li taken in by a family of orange foxes.
Age 9, fox plague, adoptive family perishes, Irincos invade. Taken in by a young red fox couple.

Age 17, goes to Mars Academy.If you're applying for a character that's been at the academy a while, what's happened to them at the academy? How have they spent their time here?
She has been at the academy just long enough to get lost several times.
She has grown fond of role-playing as the villainous Madame Cassandra. (see this thread (http://shivae.org/cyantian/index.php?topic=505.0
)) Just thought I'd mention it.
