the gilded gladiolus
💖 🐝 🍯 🐝 💖
Kana's a hard worker that throws herself into any project she's given. She's a ball of sunshine to anyone that meets her, and is an absolute delight to be around. She's a social butterfly who can make friends with anyone and everyone, and somehow always has the latest gossip floating around. However, her overly sociable nature gets annoying: she crowds into other people's personal space without realizing it, and her ditziness is especially grating to folks who aren't used to it. She's also extremely fickle to people who aren't in her immediate circle on a bad day, turning hot and cold on a dime.
Kana's story starts with her mom. With the help of an illegally-made portal, Harin Averi fled her war-torn homeland, the flowerbud that would become Kana in tow. Unfortunately, the journey damaged the flowerbud, and Harin realized if she didn't make it bloom now, it never would, and her last chance to have a child would slip through her fingers. She poured whatever magic she had into the bud, the bud slowly opened its petals, and Kana was properly born.
Kana has had to stand on her own two feet at an early age, after her rapidly-aging mother passed away. Fortunately Kana was surrounded by a supportive community, and one of her mom's closest friends adopted her soon after. She learned how to keep her nose to the grindstone, and her work ethic has carried her through high school, community college, and all her jobs.
