Kaya: Outstanding skills and abilities
Balanced. Such Kaya is presented to members of his foster family. She is always calm on the outside. Kaya readily undertakes homework, she is friendly and smiling. The girl was quiet and calm. In moments of painful experiences, Kaya lost control of herself, but relatively quickly she returned to a stable emotional state.
Merciful. Kaya, knowing in advance that there were enemies in front of her, was ready to help them. She offered Gaby and Falco a roof over their heads, food, and the cozy atmosphere of trust and acceptance on the Braus family’s farm. Later, Kaya also showed mercy by forgiving Gaby for killing Sasha Braus. The girl did not betray her friend to the Yeagerists, lying to the soldiers.
Closed. External low-emotionality came to a lesser extent from emotional stability and to a greater extent from closeness. The girl’s psyche was traumatized by grief experienced in childhood. Because of this, Kaya was not completely open even with her foster family. That is why the brothers were surprised at her intemperance in communicating with Gaby and Falco.
Kaya: The appearance and personality of the hero
Body type. Kaya grew up on a farm, which explains her lopsided physique. The Braus family also tried to provide foster children with adequate nutrition. Kaya has never played sports. However, the girl has been helping on the farm since early childhood. This was to make her hardy and strong.
Appearance. Kaya is a blue-eyed blonde. As a child, her hair only reached her chin. Later, the girl grew them to shoulder blades. Kaya also has straight bangs. Her eyebrows are slightly darker than her hair. The nose is neat with an upturned tip. The roundness and softness of facial features betray Kaya’s physical immaturity.

Sometimes the girl could be seen in a green dress and a brown sweater. For a trip to the restaurant, Kaya wore a pink frilled blouse, skirt and shoes. The image was complemented by white socks and a red ribbon under the collar, tied with a bow.
Less emotional. Kaya’s adoptive siblings rarely saw Kaya emotional. The girl is used to not expressing them outwardly. Only situations that pierce her old spiritual wounds could bring her to emotions. For example, a girl openly cried while talking about her mother.

Innocent. Kaya did not hide from Gaby and Falco that she knew their secret. She could carefully keep silent about it and wait for a favorable moment.

Kaya: Interesting Facts and Quotes
