Bender type: Airbender
Kairo stands at a modest 5'11, sporting a somewhat muscular build. He possesses red hair and eyes. The airbender often wears his favored black hoodie and fingerless gloves, typically just throwing on whatever shirt or pants he has laying around. But he dresses differently whenever he's performing vigilante work.The 2nd suit he wears provides minor protection with a composite chestplate and wristguards. While his gloves and boots are made from composite and leather to protect his arms and feet during attacks. The belt is composite as well. On his right shoulder is a grey Faceless symbol.
Kairo is quite a few things, a social butterfly, charismatic leader, hardworker,brave to a fault and a stubborn hot head. The airbender is the bold leader of the vigilante group known as Faceless, he works to lead, expand and protect the faction. Being the courageous do-gooder he is, Kairo throws himself into danger and strives to make the city a better place for the unfortunate so the people in the city don't have to struggle to survive like he did. This is a goal he is more than willing to fight for.
With a strange ability to befriend many, Kairo has inspired and recruited many to join him in his war on crime. He truly respects and admires his comrades, especially since they've fought to protect him before. Kairo is a pragmatic hero, committing seemingly immoral actions: Murder, theft,breaking and entering, assault and soundbending all for a good cause. His use of one of the 4 illegal bending arts and willingness to spill blood has been used as a tool to remove dangerous scum from the world and even save people (i.e. dashing into a burning building and using soundbending like a sonar to detect everyone he needs to rescue.) He is fully aware that there are many who would prefer to see him dead/in prison and would go to great lengths to make that dream a reality, but his valiant heart and faith in his teammates drives him to say "They're welcome to try."
Aside from that, he's still a teenager with his own faults. His stubbornness and short temper can potentially get him into bad situations and arguments with teammates. He tends to brood about his failures which can throw him into depression. Can possibly succumb to his carnal desires if he knows the girl well enough. Remains at risk of becoming possessive and quite jealous in his next relationship. On top of all of that he can possibly overwork himself at times and forget how to relax. He is an aspiring hero with a heart of gold, but still has some things to learn.
Jugo and Karin were a young married couple who recently arrived to Republic City. At first their lives were amazing, but due to unforeseen pregnancy. They had to make some sacrifices, both being no older than 23. The two weren’t ready for parenthood. They named their firstborn son Titos. Jugo worked hard at a local factory to support their child. Sometimes the two struggled to make ends meet, but they had eachother.
A few years later, Titos was 5 and he even had a 2 year old brother named Kairo who was born on Wushao 22nd. Jugo and Karin’s marriage began to falter when she suspected him of cheating on her. She tried to get him to admit to it, but he just wouldn’t and there was no evidence. Bills began piling up and the family was in debt again. Jugo kept disappearing and Karin began getting immensely stressed out. It even got to the point where Karin started beating Titos. Too young to try and do anything.
Next year it only got worse, Titos began to live in terrible fear of his mother. Their father having long since abandoned them. But one day when Karin tried to torment Kairo, Titos’ firebending made itself known. He fired a powerful stream of flame which led to his mother’s demise.
Kairo being 3 at the time would never retain these memories, only Titos had the burden. When the police arrived, he claimed they were robbed. The cops present weren’t that bright, so they believed his story and were given up to a local orphanage. But Titos wasn’t willing to trust anyone. If his mother repeatedly beat him and his father just abandoned him, he couldn’t place his faith into more adults. He had to protect Kairo, he wouldn’t trust anyone else to do so.
The brothers spend about 5 years there, so Titos was 11 and Kairo was 8. When he discovered his airbending, the workers attempted to give Kairo up to the nomads at Air Temple Island. But he violently refused and Titos wouldn’t stand for it either. Kairo denied any offer to live at the Temple unless Titos could come. But they only wanted airbending orphans of course. So they remained there and even with their meager conditions. They were happy just to have each other.
Over the next 3 years, the boys rejected any offer to get adopted unless the other could come. Every time a possible parent interviewed them, they’re first question was “Can my brother come?” None of them were interested in getting two boys, so they stayed at the orphanage. Kairo began to bond with Mr. Tamaguchi. One of the workers there, seemed to act a father to him. Titos didn’t like it one bit. Unfortunately he ended up abusing Kairo quite often when Titos was out helping with groceries.
When Titos returned, Kairo was mortified. But his young psyche suppressed the painful memory. So all he could do was comfort him. The next few weeks, Titos noticed Kairo was terrified of Mr. Tamaguchi. Even lacking the memory of the accident, he still associated strong feelings of fear and terror with him. It sadly occurs with many children who suffered like Kairo, Titos had decided to silently pursue his brother, thinking something was fishy. When the sick man attempted to violate Kairo once more, Titos used his firebending to brutally murder him. It was terrifying, relentless screams and the smell of burning flesh. Kairo was in horror to see his brother wield such rage, so he subconsciously suppressed this memory as well.
At the tender ages of 14 and 11, the brothers ran away and began to live on the streets. Whenever Kairo asked why they couldn’t live at the orphanage, Titos just said they were secretly mean people and that they were better off. He had lost any sort of trust in any adult, his lack of trust for others and protective nature of Kairo only grew. They began stealing to survive, Kairo found out he was quite the talented pick pocket.
They began taking random jobs to get by, growing up like that Kairo learned a few things. Life should be enjoyed, even they’re terrible situation he always tried to keep a happy demeanor. He enjoyed rule breaking, so Titos was really the only person he listened to. He was a free spirit with a big heart.
Eventually they managed to get a small apartment on Kairo’s 16th birthday. It was small, all they could afford. But Kairo was excited and incredibly grateful. A few months after, Titos managed to become a cop. Working hard to provide for his little brother. Kairo on the other hand struggles to keep a job.

Notes & Trivia
Kairo was the first character I ever made, he is also the first player owned character to be made an airbender. Out of all my characters, Kairo has been in the most relationships: 3 and soon to be 4. To this day he remains my favorite and is quite possibly the most i've ever rped.
