Keelyn is a waif of a girl. One of those sorts that could eat a whole pizza or carton of ice cream by herself, and never gain a pound of body fat afterward. At barely 5' 5'' and 120 pounds, it's no wonder her parents always called her 'bean pole' during her awkward childhood years. She's got the lanky, turn-sideways-and-disappear bone structure that many models would kill for, but has never considered modeling as a career option herself. <br>
Though her mother sported blue eyes and her father a murky shade of brown, Keelyn was born with green eyes. In all else she was an even mixture of her parents, with her father's strong chin, and her mother's delicate nose, and because of this there was no question as to the girl's true parentage after her birth. Her hair is natural strawberry blonde, though Keelyn wishes that her hair would have chosen one end of the spectrum or the other, and holds a natural wave to it that is occasionally the bane of this nineteen year-old's existence. It doesn't take kindly to humidity and doesn't hold a curl well, either. <br>
When it comes to style of dress, there are some who jokingly refer to Keelyn as "grandma," or "hipster." Her favorites are often of cuts and colors which are far better suited to the elderly, what with their high waists, pleats, lace and other odds and ends which make the girl appear to have stepped out of her grandmother's wardrobe and into the year 2016.

</div><div id="tabs-2" class="ui-tabs-panel">

Keelyn has, at her core, a heart of gold. Like a Disney Princess, she would often bring home stray animals or broke-winged birds for tending, she befriended those few students in school who seemed unable to make friends on their own, and she would gladly give over every scrap of food or spare change on her person to each beggar on the street, if they asked. <br>
She seemed to have a knack for knowing when a person needed her friendship the most, or when they were pretending their distress in an effort to take advantage of her, or when they were hiding their distress to prevent others from knowing. Her parents jokingly called it a 'Sixth Sense,' but sometimes Keelyn suspected there was something more to it than that. <br>
But gold is soft and malleable, and like it, Keelyn could easily become upset over unkind comments or actions made by others. Even an ill-timed sarcastic comment intended to amuse rather than insult could have Keelyn feeling insecure or uncertain about herself. It is a trait she has vowed she will change for the better. Often times she knows full well she should not be upset by a thing, and yet end up in tears over it anyway. It's possible that her untrained Empathy ability is the root of this problem, but until Keelyn has learned to use this ability (and protect herself from the strong emotions of others), she won't be able to do much about the way it affects her. <br>
She will give fully of herself to those friends and family members she holds closest to her heart, and often times will go out of her way to assist a complete stranger out of simple kindness and concern. If Keelyn had a motto by which she lived her life, it would surely have been "Pay it forward", for the girl tries very hard to give selflessly and expect nothing in return, except that the person she has helped do the same for someone else, in the future. Sometimes, however, her untrained Gifts affect the way she reacts toward friends, family and strangers alike. Her brain possesses the ability to read information about them that she would not otherwise have, and this can sometimes color her opinions of them, even if she doesn't understand why. <br>
Because she is so young, she lacks experience in the real world. The school campus is not much like living on one's own, and this is a lesson Keelyn will have to learn sooner or later. It will most likely come as a rude awakening. For now, though, Keelyn sees the world through rose colored glasses. The atrocities which happen on the news every night aren't really "real" to her yet.

</div><div id="tabs-3" class="ui-tabs-panel">

Born and raised on Earth, Keelyn has spent the last 19 years of her life simply existing on a day to day basis. School, homework, keeping up with friends and extra-curricular activities were all of the concerns that Keelyn really had before turning 18. <br>
Brian and Kalia Chasseur were those rare, elusive creatures that the modern world rarely saw anymore: supportive parents who did their best to raise their child right. Thanks to them, Keelyn has a healthy respect for her elders, does not intentionally damage other people's property, attempts to manage her money rather than spend it on a whim, and to top it off, the girl knows how to wash laundry and cook, too. They were firm in their disciplinary policy and demanding when it came to good grades in school, but in all else they were quite charming, and Keelyn loves them dearly. <br>
There was one subject upon which they would not budge, however, and that was that Keelyn would be expected to move out of the house upon her graduation, and move into a place of her own. All went quite well, until recently Keelyn's roommate picked up and left one day without paying her half of the rent or utilities. Keelyn had been forced to come up with the cash herself, and because the two-bedroom apartment was too expensive for Keelyn to maintain on the wages the library paid its part-time associates, she began to search for somewhere else to live. <br>
That was right about when the strange dreams started. One night, Keelyn experienced a dream so real, that when she woke up she spent several moments staring at the ceiling in confusion, because for some reason it felt absurdly <em>wrong</em>to be laying in that bed, in that room, in that decade. She had eventually sorted herself out and assumed that she would no longer experience such things, but roughly a month later, she experienced another. This one was just as real as before, and in each dream Keelyn was the same person. <br>
The thought that some sort of supernatural force might be affecting her dreams caused Keelyn to become reluctant to sleep, and she soon developed a habit of drinking large amounts of coffee and other caffeinated beverages just to avoid sleep altogether. It was a bad habit, she knew, but she dared not bring so frivolous a matter up to her parents, who would likely believe she was hoping for a chance to move back in, and let the habit grow. <br>
But Keelyn couldn't avoid sleep forever. And when she did finally nod off, it was to dreams of a grand manor house, wide open spaces and rolling hills, the crash of the sea against rocky cliffs, and a life such as she could only hope for. There came, too, an inexplicable yearning to SEE those places, to walk the sandy beach and feel the wind in her hair, to run her hand over the smooth balustrade of a grand staircase or to watch the ground flash by as her horse ate up the distance at a gallop. <br>
She spent weeks searching for the place on the internet, and then more weeks traveling by bus from city to city, until at last, Keelyn arrived at the Village at the Crossroads, exhausted, out of cash, but with the feeling that she had finally reached <strong>home</strong>.

</div><div id="tabs-4" class="ui-tabs-panel">

<p><b>• Iron Willed</b>
<br>Being stubborn is probably how Keelyn has made it this far, so young. She refuses to give up.</p>

<p><b>• Big Heart</b>
<br>Caelan loves easily. She lets others into her heart and gives them all the love she has in return.</p>

<p><b>• Optimist</b>
<br>Sees the glass as half full. Always trying to find positive things in every situation.</p>

<p><b>• Determined</b>
<br>Part of being Iron Willed. When Keelyn makes up her mind about something, she doesn't give up.</p>

<p><b>• Well Educated</b>
<br>Keelyn had the benefit of attending an excellent school.</p>

<p><b>• True Innocence</b>
<br>There is not a speck of malice in the girl's body. She sees the best in almost everyone.</p>

</div><div id="tabs-5" class="ui-tabs-panel">


<p><b>• Physically Weak</b>
<br>Frail and thin. Keelyn cannot hold her own in a fight, or carry heavy things.</p>

<p><b>• No Street Smarts</b>
<br>Growing up a bookworm, Keelyn knows very little about the real world.</p>

<p><b>• Lacks Experience</b>
<br>Sheltered by her parents, Keelyn never got out much. She has a romanticized view of the world.</p>

<p><b>• Easily Startled</b>
<br>Sneak up behind her and shout, “Boo!” You'll likely scare the daylights out of Keelyn every time.</p>

<p><b>• Insomniac</b>
<br>Due to strange and startling dreams, Keelyn has trouble sleeping through the night. Sometimes gets less than 4 hours sleep a night.</p>

</div><div id="tabs-6" class="ui-tabs-panel">

<p><b>• Empathy - Moderate</b>
<br>The ability to sense and manipulate the emotions of others. This ability's effectiveness is increased with physical contact. Keelyn does not currently know how to control this ability, and often picks up the emotions of others without realizing what she's doing. Conversely, if Keelyn feels strong emotions, she may accidentally project them to others in the immediate area.</p>

<p><b>• Untrained Healing Magic</b>
<br>At present, Keelyn can't use this ability either. She doesn't even know it exists. Once it's discovered, she might be able to train it and use it tto help people, but for now it will only help Keelyn if she sustains extensive physical damage.</p>

<p><b>• Sensitive to Magical Energy - Passive</b>
<br>Keelyn can tell when magical energy is being used. She gets the goosebumps, or a sensation of buzzing in her hears, or occasionally feels as though the floor suddenly dropped from under her feet. This ability only works if magic is used within 10 meters.</p>

<p><b>• Has Visions of a Past Life - Passive</b>
<br>These mostly happen when Keelyn's sleeping. They occur as vivid dreams, many of which are disturbing. Once in a while, however, the young girl experiences waking visions. This usually happens when she steps foot in the same place her previous incarnation had.</p>
