She fully expects to die young with a hook through her throat, but she'd like to make a difference for other half-breeds before then. Probably not so much stop the ministry from ever catching them as she doesn't think that's possible. But making life better before then. In summary: Make a difference before I die.

Getting ready to start the adventure, so lets see if we can fill in the last few details of your character sheet.
Here are my suggestions:

Feature: I still recommend "Svelte," like Kara, since you're identical twins and all. ;)

If you want something to distinguish Keira from Kara, I'd go with a scar or some sort of tic like "intense gaze" or "restless."

Tragedy: Never knew my parents

Destiny: (condensing what you wrote) Accomplish some good before I die.

Yeah might go with that. Originally kad didn't sound interested in them being identical which is why I wasn't trying to match up like that. I don't think Keira has any sufficiently obvious scars to warrant a trait.
Tragedy: Never knew my parents
Hmm, don't think that quite fits. I've got some thoughts but I haven't quite picked yet.
Destiny: (condensing what you wrote) Accomplish some good before I die.
That fits well, but it's pretty broad. More importantly it's basically the same as the drive.

I'll make decisions on the necessary details tonight sometime :)

Edit: That said about the Destiny, she doesn't really think she can achieve anything more than that so it fits. Destiny's are pretty malleable anyhow and actually discovering a specific thing to aim for could work for character development, so good enough.

Ok I've got everything but tragedy sorted. I think part of it ties into how she snapped and I haven't quite nailed that down yet. Given the backstory we've been working out I decided that the formal clothes prop would be a good fit and I used the remaining AP to bump her resources so she could have the cat. Who cares about gameplay usefulness, she needs a cat :D

(Oh yes, and I ended up going with the Svelte feature.)

Yo, I'm in the process of writing a monolith of backstory (because this is what normal people do in the middle of the night, right?), and I'm about to kill off the Mistlets' mother. I'm defaulting to, "Died in childbirth," for the moment, as it's the least disruptive option, but this would be very easy to edit. I mention this because I was looking at your sheet before I started writing, and if you want to incorporate the mother's means-of-death into Keira's tragedy/snapping, that would be very doable (murder by Skaa, murder by Noble, murder by Ministry, murder by crows, shockingly-not-a-murder, whatever clicks). Everything should work out smoothly either way, so I figured I'd throw you a free prompt for tragic ideas XD

Thanks :) My current thinking is that the mother died in child birth, or early enough that the mistlets never really knew her (I think that's the same page Kad is on). As things stand I'm thinking her tragedy is more a combination of factors culminating in a specific instance that lead to her snapping around the age of 10, still working on some of the details of that. But one thing I am fairly sure about is that, whatever details I finalise about it, she never told anyone else, even Kara about it.

Edit: Which is part of why I've been pretty vague about it so far ;)

Sounds good! Monolith is officially done (so far, anyway). Look on ye mighty, and despair!

Anyway, it sounds like you have a stealth-plan coming together. How dark are you thinking?

Yay! :) Time for some reading.

I'm thinking pretty dark, but not super dark. I don't want Keira to be as messed up as some other character's I've designed ;)

Is it weird that I feel more competitive as Kara, especially with regards to Keira? Like, the fact that Keira is better with money (+1 Resources) is really bothering me for some reason. Not that Kara will ever admit it.
