(I normally play her as wearing bandages and a scarf or blindfold over her eyes)
Name: Laia Thalin
Age: 14+ (depends on the story)
Powers: Shapeshifter (genetically engineered)
History: Laia was created by a geneticist named Dr. Matteo Thalin. He had run out of funding, and only had enough supplies for one last attempt at creating what he called a synthetic Shapeshifter. This attempt resulted in two births, Laia and a little boy named Diego. The two were raised by the doctor and his wife, Julia, who unfortunately died while the children were still young. Laia and Diego were close growing up, and she was the only one who could calm him down when he got mad (which happened a lot).
One day Diego got so angry that he lost control, and changed into a giant monster. He killed the doctor, destroyed their home, and attacked Laia when she tried to calm him down. Unfortunately, when he attacked her, two of Diego’s claws pierced her eyes. When her screams finally got through to Diego, and he started to change back, her eyeballs were pulled out of her head as his claws retracted.
After taking Laia to the hospital and making sure that she was ok, Diego returned home, changed into a dog, and drank a serum that trapped him in that form. He now acts as Laia’s guide, and helps her get around when needed.
