Henley Isabelle KemperNickames
Hen (by family only)Age
Henley has brown hair, naturally straight with little work, but can dry with natural waves as well. She prefers not to have short bangs, it's less of a distraction when she can tuck the stray strands behind her ear. She has blue eyes and eyebrows that arch up near the ends, and has been graced with a clear face after having some acne issues at a young age. Her lips are average, and aside from the comments about how her eyes sometimes stand out, it's her smile that most people remark over. Henley is proud of her physique, having kept up with her fitness and has strong calves (she is semi-thankful for her heels for that as well.) She has simple curves, Henley never achieved for looking muscular, and was never one to try to tan, even a day in the sun would give her a little burn.Personality Traits
Henley has always been a hard worker, having been raised by parents who started with nothing. She worked her way through life with doing odd jobs alongside her hunting career and it's made her a busy body who isn't used to prolonged breaks except behind closed doors. She happens to be overly ambitious, only wanting the best out of situations though she tries to understand some of those scenarios aren't possible. She is dedicated nonetheless, work and family are her priority so she's rather reliable and responsible.Skills
Despite all these positives, she doesn't like to make permanent connections to others as easily as she did in the past. People die, and others betray you the second the wind blows the wrong way. She has let some past that superficial barrier she has up, but it has taken time.
Combat: She is well versed in hand and knife combat. It was hands on experience from her parents and side-hunting with them as a teenager that she bettered herself. She is agile due to her smaller figure, and being dedicated is why she continues to practice on bettering herself to prevent future injuries.Weaknesses
First aid: Her mother helped her to learn basic first aid and how to treat wounds specific to what she would encounter as she grew up into the profession she has now.
Perceptiveness: She is good at reading faces and trying to understand the way people react as they do or say the things they say. Sometimes she thinks she could have made a career out of this skill set alone if it could keep her busy enough.
Claustrophobia: She freaks out at the thought of being trapped in a room, especially one where she hasn't scouted the entry/exit routes beforehand. It draws her attention away from anything she could have been doing, and it makes her obviously uncomfortable.History
Superstitious: Despite knowing there are supernatural beings in the world with her, this woman is superstitious. She hasn't broken a mirror, stepped under ladders, she won't keep walking if a black cat crosses her path, whatever it is, she believes in it. It makes her look rather ridiculous.
Petite: Her size is a weakness and advantage, really. While she comes off as small in size, she knows how to use it to her advantage, but it does make her suseptable to being attacked first or maybe even more often.
Lack of trust: She doesn't trust in most people unless they've stuck around long enough to prove their worth. The last time she trusted in someone, it nearly killed her. So if it's you or her getting out alive, good luck trying to get her to save you.
Henley didn't grow up with much aside from having a loving family who taught her the possibilities that came from hard work and dedication to getting things done. Oh, and hunting the supernatural. Being in a city like Detroit, you had a lot of crime that was actually caused by them. Her parents aside from that, worked mundane jobs and she learned skills from them in their free time. She would listen to their stories about what they did when they were out until she was old enough to tag along, and then was seated after her younger brother was born.Misc.
Her mother decided to step back and raise her brother a few years later, letting Henley learn the trade from her dad, and Henley was now the sidekick to her father with hunting. This continued for her until graduation, to which she chose to continue the same path of her parents, and with other fellow local hunters, branched out further past just hunting in Detroit.
This was how she to came to meet a man named Beau. The stereotypical getting to know one another, falling in love and marraige thing happened, and it lasted for the first 5 years of her twenties. And then during a hunt she was too sick to participate in one winter night, he was part of an ambush from vampires, and the group didn't make it back, human at least. When he did, he was changed, and it took everything in her to kill him and the few others who returned the same way. And then she sought out the clan who did it. She returned back to Detroit briefly to see her family for a bit, before she decided she was happier out there doing what she did best. She just does it now with not as many relationships to other people. Anyone who asks, she just says she is divorced rather than widowed.
