Baroness Kima Saik
"Let us be moved, you and I, by the things themselves. Let us discover each other."
Description: Kima is neither overbearingly tall nor pathetically short. As a knight with any modicum of skill, her physique is toned without being too brawny or too thin, yet still maintaining ample womanly charms. With her mane of blonde hair, and strikingly radiant eyes, Kima is more than aware of these charms, too. Upon her lips can often be found a grin that suggests she knows something the viewer does not.
Personality: Kima is known as a fiery, passionate woman. Which is a polite way of saying that she chases after that which gives her pleasure with little regard to what others may think about it. It's not that she wilfully disregards such concepts as honor or loyalty, rather, for Kima, those things are much more fluid than they are to some others. By and large she is stalwart and dependable, just don't expect her to cleave to the traditional notions of chivalry.
Background: The Saiks are a poor branch of an already poor barony, holding a small stretch of land and, thankfully, the title of nobility. Kima's father, a well-meaning if entirely boring man, is the younger brother of the baron himself - which is the only reason at all the penny-pinching codger ever even considered paying for her knighthood. It took half a year and more of convincing, but he eventually acquiesced and from that moment onwards it was brighter days and greener pastures for Kima.
The young woman began to cultivate her future reputation first by slaying Shavs close to home, then, by travelling throughout the city-states. During those years, Kima could be found in the company of three other youths that styled themselves as up and coming in the world. Fierce, exceptionally skilled, and eager to make coin, coin, and more coin, the Pride of Lyceum became its own sensation. That is...until disaster struck. A combination of ill-luck and poor decision making, and only one of the lionesses walked out of a particularly nasty raid alive.
Kima laid low for a while after that, only appearing in Arx itself a few years ago where she took up the role of instructor. This isn't to say her flamboyant nature or lust for life has been at all dampened! If anything, she's living up to her name as the Lioness.
