Name: Issa

Class: Water Bender

Age: 17

Gender: Female


Sexuality: Straight

Family: As far as she is concerned: only Toklo. They are brother and sister. By blood, however, they do have a half-dead mother and a missing father. Their mother - Sura - was just a woman that showed up every couple of weeks demanding whatever money or goods they had been able to attain during raids. She used it for herself, and somehow couldn't ever find enough to drink.

Appearance: Issa is quite small for her age – the very opposite of her brother. She has dark brown hair that falls rather messily below her chin. Similar to her brother she has two sections of hair on her right and left that are longer than the rest, also held together by a blue strap. However, hers stretches all the way to her shoulders. Her eyes are deep blue, like the expanse of the ocean under a blanket of dark grey clouds.

Height: 5’0”

Weight: 95 lbs

History: Members of the Southern Water tribe, or what once had been, Toklo and Issa were raised as pirates as soon as they were old enough to be of use. While Issa thrived on the thrill of battle, Toklo despised every part of their life. Their father had presumably been killed or taken captive during one of the raids. That was when Toklo was ten, and Issa was nine. Because of that, Toklo feared leaving for a raid despite his perfectly capable skills as a warrior and bender. At home all they had was each other, and a few morsels that hardly counted as meals, but it was enough for them to survive. Still, Toklo hated going home because that brought the very possible chance of Sura showing up and taking what he and Issa had earned for themselves. Granted, they earned it by stealing, but there was no other way of life for them. Toklo wished desperately for a change – for an honest life without the need to hurt others and steal what little they had. Issa was less bothered by their situation, however she was not fond of hurting innocents, either. She loved to fight, but would rather it be a target a little more menacing than a few townspeople simply trying to defend their livelihood from pirates. It remained that way for years, without the hope of gaining a new life, a new start. That is, until word reached Toklo’s ears about the Citizenship Project. As soon as he heard about it, he researched the Project until he was sure that it wasn’t a fluke, and then he told Issa. His sister was skeptical, but when he mentioned moving far away from the pitiful hierarchy of Wastelanders, and Sura, she agreed quite enthusiastically. As soon as they could they packed the few things they had and left, without even a single word to Sura. They just left a note in the middle of the floor of their makeshift shack. It had four words written on it. – Good luck without us –

Personality: Like their appearance, Issa and Toklo are opposites in personality as well. Toklo tends to think things through, while Issa forces her way past any obstacle that might arise. She is hot-tempered, free-spirited, and despite her small size scary as hell when she is angered. Only Toklo seems to have a knack for calming her down when she is in a rage. She has an icy exterior to strangers, and often speaks and acts rudely around those she does not particularly care for. Toklo is cautious, but Issa is downright suspicious of anyone she meets, and she is not afraid to show it. She speaks her mind and gets into a lot of trouble that way – of course Toklo is always there to get her out. She is quicker to bend the rules than Toklo, which can also lead to disaster, but there have been many times that her thinking has proven useful for the greater good. Despite all of her fire and ice, however, she truly cares for humanity and would rather not hurt others. Currently only her brother knows her soft side, but in a new environment that could change quickly.
