Today’s topic: Abilities
1. What would your character’s best attack be in a fight?
Nyx granted her children the ability to camouflage themselves in the darkness, to meld into shdadow and become nearly invisible. However it was Kieran who's mastered this ability. His favorite "trick" to use during a fight, is this. To melt away into shadow and strike quickly and powerfully with an element of surprise.
2. Have they studied any fighting techniques?
Kieran is a lover, not a fighter at his core. Therefore he received the standard training that all demigods get at camp half blood; but hasn't pursued or displayed an interest in getting additional lessons in fighting techniques.
3. What was their best subject at school? How good were they?
Kieran was pretty average during school. He did his best to get good grades and mostly brought home c's or b's. One area he excelled at however, was art. This boy could lose himself in painting, sketching, you name it. His love of art has transferred into his profession of a tattoo artist.
4. Would your character have the capacity to kill someone?
Kieran does not and will never posses the ability or capacity to kill someone with premeditation. In all the fights he's been in, Kieran only defends himself to the point that is required. Could he kill monsters, or even other demigods during a fight? Of course. Especially if he's trying to protect people he loves.
5. Have they ever won an award? What was it?
Kieran has not won an award.
6. Do they have any unusual powers? How do they work?
As a child of Nyx Kieran does have unusual powers. Like all children of Nyx he has the standard perfect night vision, the ability to construct near unbreakable shields out of darkness, darkness agility and healing, the ability to bring shadows to life, astrological knowledge, and darkness camoflauge.
all children of Nyx, Kieran was gifted with the rare ability to manipulate nocturnal animals. He can communicate and control them to a certain extent. He has a sort of pet raccoon he calls Meeko.
7. How are their social skills?
Kieran's something of a social butterfly. He loves to chat with people, strangers and friends alike. He's generally of a very pleasant and amiable disposition so people don't tend to find him difficult to get along with. However, he can get anxious and when he gets anxious he tends to push people away and would rather be alone.
8. Are they good at any sports / physical activities?
Kieran is actually pretty decent at physical activities. He loves hiking, skateboarding, biking, swimming- you name it. He just can't stand organized sports so you won't really catch him doing that. He prefers physical activities you can simply just enjoy with friends, without competition.
9. Are they a good employee?
Kieran's a pretty decent employee. He does what he's asked, when he's asked. He knows how to do his job and he does it to the best of his ability. However, he doesn't always take initiative, or go above and beyond what he's supposed.
10. Are they a good student?
Kieran isn't a fantastic student, but he's not a bad one. When he was in school he wasn't much of a problem child, paid attention to lectures (for the most part) and turned in his schoolwork. He has issues with ADHD like many demigods which impacted him a little.
11. Can they run very fast? What about distance?
Kieran isn't very fast, save for when he's in darkness and has the enhanced agility. However, he can run long distances without issue- in fact does quite well running distance.
12. Do they have a lot of stamina?
Yes. Even though he doesn't like to fight, Kieran does enjoy working out and doing physical activities. Over the years he's built up an impressive amount of stamina.
13. Are they very physically strong, average or weaker?
Kieran is quite strong physically, even when not enhanced in darkness. This comes as a surprise to people because of his gentle, nurturing demeanor. Often people forget that he's come and gone from camp half blood since he was eighteen- and it takes strength to do that. Physically and mentally.
14. How is their eyesight?
During the day, Kier's eyesight isn't that great. He often wears sunglasses to help with that. In the night, thanks to his mother's domain, his eyesight is perfect.
15. Do they have a very good sense of smell?
Yes. Because his eyesight is terrible during the day, its sharpened his other senses a little bit. So his sense of smell is sharp.
16. Do they have any hearing damage? Is their hearing very sharp?
Kieran doesn't have damaged
hearing, he has selective hearing. He tends to sometimes space out when people are talking to him and when that happens you may as well try talking to a wall.
17. Are they good at researching?
I mean, he's good at vetting his sources, and googling things but that's about it. He also doesn't care for research very much, he finds it tedious.
18. Are they resourceful or do they rely on their own strength?
This demigod definitely tends to rely more on their own strength than his resourcefulness.
19. Are they good at making friends?
Absolutely. Kieran loves people, and he loves making friends. He's always down to talk to whoever wants to, or who needs someone to chat with. His sweet, gentle nature tends to attract people to him; and he's quite a good listener.
20. Are they desirable as a dating partner?
If you ask Kieran, he'll say he's nothing really special. However, he's always underselling himself. Kieran is patient, loyal, caring, and humorous. He's devoted and it wouldn't be a stretch to think that some people would find him a desirable dating partner.
21. Do they have a good sense of fashion?
People don't always expect this- but yes. Kieran takes great pride in how he presents himself to the world. He likes nice things, and he likes nice clothes. You can usually find him in "fashionable" or trendy clothing- even though he tends to favor more... alternative styles of dressing.
22. How well do they look after theirself? Do they practice self care?
Kieran is so busy trying to take care of other campers and siblings, family and friends he doesn't really look after himself all that well. He's a notable insomniac, tends to eat junk food, and while it's not inherently bad likes to smoke marijuana. His version of self-care is rolling a joint, taking a catnap in the sun, reading some poetry, and going to town to shop around and ride his skateboard. Maybe pet a dog or two if he's lucky.
23. Are they a good problem solver?
Kieran is good at solving other people's problems. When faced with his own internal struggles or issues he tends to do a couple things. The most usual thing for him to do is just shut down. Not acknowledge a little problem until it's become a big one. If it's a problem with someone else he is completely conflict avoidant.
24. Do they work better in a team or alone?
Definitely in a team. Sometimes Kieran tends to get a little... sidetracked. Therefore he always works better, and a little more focused, in a group. He likes splitting tasks up and making work feel more manageable.
25. Do they use any weapons? How well?
Kieran can wield the sword his mother gave him, and Xiphos sword in general.
26. What is the extent of your character’s first aid abilities?
Kieran's extent of first aid abilities extends to Tylenol, and band-aids. Anything more serious and you'll need to go to the infirmary- not him.
27. Do they have any valuable allies? Who?
Kieran considers his friends valuable allies. He has a few closer ones in general like Kai who Kieran knows he can count on for just about anything. He also knows he can rely on his family, though he doesn't really consider them allies in the whole fighting monsters thing.
28. How much weight could your character lift up?
Kieran's workouts don't typically consist of weight training, but he can lift 230 pounds for the squat, 175 pounds for the bench press and 290 pounds for the deadlift.
29. How much could your character carry?
About up to 290 pounds of stuff.
30. Is your character very organised or efficient?
Efficient. He needs to make conscious efforts to be more organized, otherwise he'd lose his head.
