Kirima has dark brown eyes and tan skin, which she often covers up, in hopes no one sees her as a southern pirate, both these traits come from her parents, however, her white hair didn't come from either strangely enough. She often wears her hair natural, as it's somewhat a pain to deal with, sometimes, for special occasions, she styles it however. She looks a lot younger than she actually is, which often makes people underestimate her talent. She wears somewhat strange clothing, which makes her seem even more childlike somehow.
Kirima, though generally putting on a ruse of innocence, should not be underestimated for her looks, being quite swift and skilled for someone of her age. She isn't inherently sadistic, but does enjoy her time when she absolutely has to kill someone, however, what she craves most, is power. She respects loyalty above all else, so long as they don't break her trust, she won't betray them, because of this, she despises those who would betray anyone for their own self-gain. She has great interest in both weaponry and first-aid, often practicing her skills with each.
Kirima was born to the quite successful pirate and his wife, both of whom were waterbenders, her mother being a healer, a trait Kirima, unfortunately, would not inherit . During her earlier years, she was trained to be tough, to not show mercy towards anyone, especially if they were traitors, because of this, she would become a highly effective fighter. As she grew older, she began to show much skill in single combat, using only two small daggers with curved hilts, even against a longer blade. She was always trained to be a pirate throughout her entire childhood, making her rather charismatic and crafty. She was also taught to respect loyalty, making her surprisingly loyal as well.
At about the age of 10, she would be allowed to become a fully fledged crew member, being quite mature and merciless for her young age. She'd often be forced join her father or a well trusted crew member when they raided a village as her mother didn't want her getting hurt. More often than not, however, she'd sneak away from those who were meant to guard her and tricked villagers into situations in which she had all the power, and managed to steal from them that way, rather than simply killing them, though if she was forced to she would kill them. She'd sometimes be forced to stay back and provide first aid to those who needed it when her mother was preoccupied, giving her much opportunity to practice both her combat and first aid skills. As she grew, she began to use a variety of other weapons along with her daggers.
When she was 13, the girl was sleeping on her father's ship while they were out at sea. While she was sleeping however, the ship was attacked by a much larger group of pirates. The other group had been seeking more pirates to join them, however, her father refused being the prideful man he was, decided to fight the large group of pirates, an action which would prove to be fatal for his entire crew. The fighting was gruesome, numerous people getting killed While the fighting was going on above deck, Kirima's mother woke Kirima, although, Kirima was still half asleep, and got her away in a small raft, using her bending so as to glide quickly across the water. Kirima eventually fell back asleep, and only after she awoke would she find her mother's body, dead from the wounds she had received on the ship.
She had washed up on the shore of the Earth Republic, and quickly left her mother's corpse behind so as to forget her former life carrying only her daggers and the outfit she had on. She'd steal and cheat her way back into decent living, traveling numerous places within the Earth Republic, during which she'd hear talk of something called the 'Citizenship project' or something like that. Seeing this 'project' as an opportunity to get the power she so desperately craved, she began to lie and cheat even more, so as to make the money to make it to Republic City. She, of course, eventually made the funds and made her way to Republic City by foot
