Character Info

A mouse girl, basically. She's small, only half a foot tall, and weighs in at a whopping two lbs. That and she shares a great many features with a mouse except she prefers two legs, has opposable thumbs, and overall is much more talkative and animated. A mutant who's mutation left her in a rather awkward situation has made the best of her life and is currently working on her own version of education while doing her best to protect those that she can.

* 2001: Kaida Connolly is born to Sakura and Shaemus Connolly.

* 2006: Kaida's father starts to encourage her in martial arts and even starts training her what he knew of sword play, he also signs her up for fencing lessons once a week.

* 2011: By this time, Kaida is fluent in English, Mandarin, Japanese, and Gaelic at this point. Her mother keeps pushing her to learn.

* 2013: Kaida starts High School two years early, having skipped a couple of grades.

* 2014: Kaida loses her mother to a rare heart condition. Her father starts to slip into alcoholism.

* 2016: Kaida encounters muggers in an alleyway while trying to save someone. Her mutant power kicks in and she shrinks to the size of a mouse.

* 2017 (early): After spending time trying to adapt to her new powers and understanding things, Kaida finally tries to go home. She finds her father devastated and in a drunken rage he attacks what he assumes is a hallucination (given his daughter is the size of a mouse and looks mouse like). She flees and doesn't return.

* 2017 (Later): Kaida finds a group of homeless people who are doing their best to survive in an abandoned building. When they are attacked, Kaida saves them. They take her in as their little guardian. A kind hearted young man there gifts her with a hand-made, tiny sword. It seems normal enough but Kaida quickly finds it cannot cut anything organic (though it causes pain like it does). The young man simply vanishes soon after.

*2017 to Present: Kaida continues to live with that group while using a nearby high school to continue learning as well as sneaking into Columbia University to watch lectures and read text books so she can continue to learn.

Kind, fierce, cocky, spunky, and add a dash of melancholy all are a good description for Kaida. Like many people, she's a mixture of all of it. She's a girl who seems to have lost everything who has chosen to make the best out of a bad situation. Partially out of not knowing what else to do and partially to completely avoid the fear that has settled into her since her father attacked her. She was raised to help people and so she is protective of her new home. It might be an abaonded building but the people there care for her and she cares for them as such. She cares for family and wants to be helpful. She wants to learn and grow and become and yet she worries she'll never become much due to her changes. Further, she continuously avoids her father because she's worried about what might come of them meeting again.

Despite all this conflict, she puts on a brave front most days. Spunky, talkitive to those who will listen and take her seriously. She tries to spend her days smiling and treating people well. Helping where she can and keeping busy. Those that know her would think she's happy as can be at her size and shape but secretly she kinda wants to just be back to normal and go home to her dad. For now, she's doing what she can.

Character Sheet

Physical Enhancement:
Despite her size, she can actually lift just under 10 kg (20 lbs), is as tough as a concrete block (capable of taking upwards of 8 tons of force), and is incredibly agile to the point where she can even dodge arrows or crossbow bolts. She's actually fast enough to dodge someone firing a gun if she can see them using her speed to dodge the shooter more than the bullet. In small bursts and in straight lines she can hit speeds of upwards of 300kph. Maintained speeds, she can travel faster than most cars are on a freeway at speeds right at 130 kph. For her, moving at that speed is similar to someone doing a solid run. She can maintain it without hestiation for up to 30 minutes but mainly cause she needs to eat.

Her sense of smell and hearing are enhanced greatly, as powerful as a mouse's sense of smell and hearing. She can pick out scents across an entire room and use scent to find someone or something as easily as someone might use sight. Her hearing is not simply enhanced as far as distance goes (capable of hearing most sounds throughout an entire house) but her frequency range is greatly increased to hear from 1000 hertz all the way up to 90,000 hertz. As such she can not only hear at a distance but pick out very quiet sounds as well as incredibly high pitched ones.

Teeth and Claws:
Ok, her claws won't be doing anyone any real damage as they are far too small for that but they do give her an uncanny climbing ability to the point where she can climb basically any surface that isn't sheer (such as glass or metal) by grasping any tiny imperfection in the surface and scrambling up. Her teeth, while not built for damage are incredibly sharp and not anything that you'd want chomping into your flesh, especially with a bite force that can exceed 13 kg over a very tiny area.

Being small has its advantages. At only 15 cm tall, she can slip into many places that people can't and easily slip by people that might otherwise see someone of normal size. Further she's just generally a harder target to hit due to size alone. Not to say being small doesn't come with its weaknesses, but the advantages are there and she takes them.

While she has done her best to keep up with studies via sitting in on classes in a nearby high school, she's been focusing much of her time to increasing her knowledge in biochemistry by sneaking into more advanced classes and learning what she can. She's not far into it but she knows far more about basic biochemistry than most first year students.

She has a great deal of basic knowledge of fencing and traditional sword fighting. She has also been taught to throw basic kicks and punches. She hasn't been in very many real sword fights outside of practice and a couple of tournaments. She has used her skills to fight some street riff raff but has no real experience. She also has started to learn how to use her speed and agility along with her durable form to not just cut but also simply slam into people. Overall, she's a skilled novice but learning in the area of combat.

While by no means a super genius, she's a very smart girl. She's a fast learner and likely would have finished High School two years early with AP credits had it not been for all that took place in her life. Even so, she's done her best to teach herself through study and sneaking into classes she isn't a part of using her abilities.

She is fluent in English, Gaelic, Mandarin, and Japanese. She has a beginning understanding of Spanish, French, and German though she never got far with any of them. She has a natural talent for languages, picking them up much faster than most and able to swap between them quickly.

While she has no formal training in stealth, between necessity, her size, and abilities, she has an incredible talent for stealth. Most already don't look down to begin with but her abilities further enhance things. Due to her speed and agility she can move between hiding spots fast enough to likely not even be noticed. Her size allows her to find more places to hide and move locations to move through than most could.

Custom Pack & Clothes:
A sweet older homeless woman was able to sneak a bit of cloth and string and fashioned her a little backpack. It's big enough that she can pack in quite a bit of food into it and yet it still sits on her well enough to not get too much in the way when she's running. A custom backpack for a mouse girl. Further, she made a nice little cloak, shirt, and pants for the girl out of available scraps.

Thanks to a kind hearted young man, she has a sword that is fairly unique. It looks like nothing much more than a simple piece of metal that has been fashioned into a blade and with a grip wrapped in a thin strip of leather. Along each side though is an inscription in a language that is unfamiliar to Kaida. The blade radiates with an enchantment for those that can see it. The blade itself is incredibly tough, far tougher than it has business being. It's sharp, capable of cutitng into steel. However, it won't cut anything organic. Those cut by it feel like they've been cut but no real damage is done. As far as Kaida knows, that's all there is to it.

This is a bad thing for her. She's a tough little thing and can do more damage than most people ten times her size but she is still very tiny and very weak comparitively. She is beyond brave and it can get her into many situations that are far over her head.

She eats...a lot. Mice eat a lot during a day and she's amplified in that respect. She eats upwards of four to five lbs. of food a day and sometimes more if she's using her powers actively. She gets hungry fast and typically eats hourly, often keeping snacks nearby or with her so she can always have something to gnaw on. If she goes too long without food she can start to get exhausted fast if she is actively using her powers to move quickly. Her powers convert food quickly in her stomach to stored energy that is pushed into her very dense form, giving her the ability to eat far more than her size should allow.

Her Father:
Her Father is still out there, wishing his daughter would come home and in a lot of ways she wishes she could go home to him. Frankly, in many ways she could but she is afraid to even try. Will she make things worse? Will he hate her? Blame her? Be terrified? Be broken by knowing the truth? It's just unclear to her and the thought of it haunts her.

Her most obvious flaw is her size. Being only 15 cm tall means she simply can't do what larger people can do. She can lift ten lbs. but anything larger is beyond her. She has to jump up or climb up to places that a normal person could just lean on. Everything around her is huge and nothing is really built for her size.

Seemingly, Kaida is stuck as a mouse girl. She isn't really sure how to turn back or even if she can ever turn back. As such she is very small (as mentioned in another weakness) and stuck looking like an anthromorphic mouse. She has made the best of the situation but it has been a rather guiding point in her life. She would like to pretend she has accepted her fate but a part of her really would like to get back to normal.
