McOlster; Kaylin; Meister
Name: Kaylin McOlster
Nickname: Kaylin, Kit, The Energetic Meister
Class: One Star
A Strong Body
Appearance: Kit holds a shorter stature of a young female, barely getting herself over the five foot marker. Not a model when it comes to looks, yet her confidence gives her that attractive flair that others can’t seem to put their finger on. There are hints to her physical features that give off a sort of untamable feel. Pale skin, but a faint glistening tan to it, a rebellion against the white color that her skin should actually possess. An overall smooth look to her frame, yet muscles that lie just beneath her skin show their strength when in use. Calm with a deadly center.
Short brown locks are that which belong to Kit. Choppy hair, layered sporadically throughout, and barely reaching her shoulders. The hair frames her normally smoothly outlined face, gentle-like features for the most part, but with the jagged hair contrasting the ‘sweetness.’ Brown that matches her hair is found in the color of her eyes, an always interested and playful look seen clearly within her gazes. Lips just a faint shade darker than her skin, thin yet always holding a smirk of varying meanings.
Broad shoulders belong to the young woman, at least for her height and figure, giving off the sense of strength. These shoulders connect to arms that hold the same message, power and strength. Muscle lines her arms with ‘gentle’ toning, seeing faint movements of muscles beneath the skin at all times. Kit’s hands are surprisingly thin and long, a much more feminine and dainty sort of look to them. (which may explain the gloves?)
A short height mixed with a medium physique, yet somehow seems to work for Kit and she prides herself in what she can. The young female’s chest is not to be denied, protruding from her upper body in a decent size and shape. It seems to fit her body type well, average in the fact that she is not flat chested, but not all that noticeable that it‘s the first thing noticed. Moving down along her stomach, faint lines of muscle can be seen as well, lightly outlined abdominals seen from time to time. Larger hips just below her waist, that feminine strength, the hips to bear children! Thicker legs with a trace of muscles here and there, often easily found along her calves.
Kit wears boots. That’s right, boots. Not thick and warm for winter reasons, but sturdy and light that she can use almost at all times. Try thinking along the lines of a stretchy rain boot. She enjoys the look and feel of them, making them a main part of the woman’s wardrobe. The boots are viewed of mostly shades of greys and whites, with added dark blues for decoration. These stretch to just an inch or two below the knee, not restricting her movements in the least (or else she would go without shoes altogether!). Something that is composed very similar to these boots are her gloves. These come to just below her elbow, the colors are basically the same style, same as their making. A tougher material lines her body, with a softer and stretchy material at her ankles, wrists, and fingers. This allows her to move the muscles that are covered with the least limitation as possible.
The outfit that covers her body is also somewhat odd. The shirt that covers her chest is almost always a dark blue color, with its sole purpose being covering her chest. The ‘shirt’ is cut off at the shoulders, has a slight v-neck, and then cuts off just beneath her chest with a one inch strand of elastic-like material to keep it set in place. The rest of her outfit is composed of a one-piece ‘suit’. Think of a scuba diving sort of suit, dark grey and light blue in color. It sticks close to her skin, but cuts off at the upper thigh and at her shoulders. Kit keeps it unzipped to give herself some freedom, but a black belt is fixed into the suit, crossing and fastening firmly across her middle and keeping everything in place.
Lastly, she keeps one item from home that is very close to her. Her whip. It fastens to the black belt around her body, keeping the whip secure against the right side of her body. Rolled up a few times and at her side, it’s easily accessible and most always with her. It’s her good luck charm, her weapon, and a reminder of home.
Weight: 120 lbs
Fighting Style: One of the only weapons that Kaylin is able to wield is a whip. She also has the basic ability to shoot a gun, but it has never been proven if she could even hit the side of a barn when under pressure. No, the technician’s best bet is a whip. Her lean form and flexible body create similarities between her and her weapon, from that she naturally tends to think of the weapon as an extension of herself. Her flexibility helps her to move in whatever way she wishes, giving her an almost unlimited range and a large variety of ways that she can twist her body to strike and maneuver. Speed and reaction time are also a big part of her weapon wielding. Reaction means nothing without speed, and a combination allows her to make her way around opponents. Placing her steps just right, being able to strike and then recoil just as quickly, react to the enemy’s movements, and use her scheming ability to find how best to react. A dance of concentration, fluidity in her movements and thereby transferring it to her weapon.
Reaction, speed, and flexibility are some of Kit’s greatest strengths. Her reaction time and speed work together to get her out of tough situations but also to get in and out of an attack quickly and efficiently. If someone comes at her, she reacts quickly, though not completely with the knowledge of what she should be doing. It is a simpler form of reacting, more primitive in a sense. She knows she wants to avoid a hit, therefore her body tries its best to keep her uninjured. Speed helps her not only in reaction but in offense. If she wants to attack, she can get in there quickly and brutally, the enemy might not even see what’s coming. Flexibility. It gives her a greater amount of options for her body to take. Not just simple movements, but greater body manipulation that can help her in tough spots.
Weaknesses that stand out greatly are her inexperience, obliviousness, and lacking ability to learn. Kit… isn’t the smartest gal in the bunch. Her scattered thoughts don’t really help when she should be studying or paying attention in class. The meister doesn’t exactly know what she should be doing in a fighting situation, and doesn’t really see the severity of it. Because of this and the fact that she does not have a partner, she does not have a lot of experience in the field. Experience is a great learning means for her, a better way for her to get a grasp of concept. Without going through it herself, you may as well expect her to fail if it’s her first time.
Kaylin is a very outspoken individual. If it comes to her mind, she will speak it. Though she doesn’t use many words, she blatantly expresses herself without holding back if she feels words are needed in the situation. Never will she hold back what she wishes to say, it all comes out on the very whim of her being.
At the center of this young woman is her ability to NEED fun. Her whole being is about it, that she must have fun, that everything is a game, that she wants people to smile and laugh with her. Kaylin is all about the joy around her. It is the core of who she is and never once has she strayed from it. Anything she does or says is because she finds it absolutely entertaining.
Because of her love of fun and nothing holding her back, the girl often comes across as confident. She is strong in who she is and constantly is doing only what she feels like doing. The female is strong in her abilities, fully assured in herself no matter what almost to the point of delusion.
Kaylin is also very much energetic and free. The girl’s energy is not bound by anything. Running for hours upon hours with no stop, she constantly gets drive from her addiction to joy and fun. Her energy pushes her forward with its own sort of momentum, and in that sense, she is free. Her freedom also comes from her self-assurance and joy. The girl has nothing to hold her back, at least nothing that she fully realizes. Through out life she has constantly done what she wishes, constantly being free of any restraint.
If it hasn’t come across quite clearly yet, Kaylin is a very happy individual, but is also easy to please. The girl can find joy in anything. Absolutely anything. She wants to be happy, she wants to find joy, and because of this drive, she will be happy. So anything anyone presents her with, she will most likely be pleased. A smile is constantly found on the female’s face.
Combine her energy and confidence, one will see the obviousness in her being sporadic. Out of nowhere the girl may just scream about the fairies she was thinking about and take off for another place. Her thoughts are all her own, and no one has quite found a way to follow or decipher them. This sporadic tendency in action and thought aren’t exactly unique to people, but to the level she takes them to… can take many off their guard.
Sadly, a negative side many people see is the insensitive part of Kaylin. It’s not exactly that the female doesn’t care about other people, she is just WAY too focused on her own energy and joy to sometimes notice that she is harming other people or their feelings. She does not exactly observe how she might affect others. In this way, she is disconnected. The meister doesn’t have a good idea on how to connect with how others feel. Seeing as she is always happy, other emotions don’t ‘click’ with her. She doesn’t understand.
A thing about Kaylin’s happy persona is that, while she may enjoy games, it is not for the competitive aspect. She is not competitive in the least. Kaylin is all about fun and enjoying herself. The pressure of battle doesn’t get to her, the pressure to win doesn’t drive her, she plain and simply wants to smile and enjoy herself.
The simplicity of Kaylin’s being carries on throughout her. The girl is oblivious, often to the point of not even registering if the person she is around is male or female. Obvious and crazy things stick out to her, at times, but only in moments of energy or switching attention span. The girl can not focus her thoughts, often leaving people to believe that she is a complete idiot. And while this may have some ring of truth to it, the girl can formulate amazing thoughts. Only if she were to focus. Which, generally speaking, Kaylin can not. Her slow ability to learn is a result of her short attention span, her getting easily distracted, and her decision that most of the time it is no fun.
The girl is quite an individual.
Inside the Soul
Abilities: As of now she has not discovered any abilities.
Out of your Mind
Strengths: Speed, Flexibility, Endurance
Weaknesses: Learns Slowly/Stupidity, Obliviousness, Inexperience, Ignorant/Apathetic
Hobbies: Kaylin is a person that could be persuaded to do just about anything. The girl is centered on enjoyment, so if she can find a way to smile about it she will do it. She has no continual hobbies from day to day, more just sporadic events that she calls upon. She has been seen making chalk art in the street, painting her room, dying her hair (and her whole self in the process), baking what was supposed to be cinnamon rolls, destroying a friend’s house, making ‘music’…. The list goes on and on. Kaylin’s way of life is a smile. Anything is possible.
-Sticks in the Mud
Aspirations: Smile. Kaylin… has no real lifetime goal. She exists to be pleased and please others.
History: The McOlster’s are indeed a unique family. They bring smiles and laughs to people all over the country! Such is the way of a traveling circus. Now… the McOlster’s are not the only ones to be in the circus, far from it. Hundreds of people working together for a greater goal, to entertain. Isaac’s Wonders, Oddities, and Discoveries. A home to all that were in this specific entertaining business. They were all family, all extremely close.
This is the atmosphere that Kaylin was born and raised in. Surrounded by community and love, but also bounding happiness and energy, this is most likely why her mind works the way it does. Though she may not have absorbed everything from her atmosphere, she obtained some of the oddity and strangeness of the circus. The smiling faces she saw, the personalities that were shown to her, and even some qualities that were demonstrated.
Kaylin was not the only one of her actual blood family. Obviously she had her parents, both mother and father. They loved each other deeply and were as kind as kind could get. Her mother was a wirewalker. A wonderful display of balance, fluidity, flexibility, and control. Abilities that may have proven to be heightened because of meister blood flowing through the woman's veins. Though this has not been yet tested nor looked into, it has been speculated that Kit's meister ability came from her mother's side. A trail never taken or known by the woman. But as blood would have it, meisterhood and some skills were passed on to Kaylin, at least the capacity for these skills. She, Kit, is able to gain these skills (and has to a degree), but has to train herself further. But even with time, she may not ever be able to get to the perfection that her mother had. She watched her mother perform, loved everything she did, but especially loved the reaction that she could get from people. To a point, Kit envied that. She wanted to make people smile, to make them happy and joyful the way that her mother could.
Her father, on the other hand, took care of animals. He worked behind the scenes, made sure everything worked properly when it came to his beasts. Kit found much of her outspokenness and out of the box thoughts coming from observing him. Watching him and helping him with whatever he may need, and in return he always accepted her with a smile. Feeding, cleaning, grooming, training, and bonding with these animals, Kit found herself growing closer to her father and herself. She was forming her own personality, her own way of life, and creating her own beliefs and thoughts just by these interactions.
As she grew older, and could actually control her own actions and movements with greater precision, her father decided to show her a bit of their world. Her parents had decided together, that they would try and combine their worlds, behind the scenes and performance. Animal training. It would allow her to interact with the animals in deeper ways than her father, but also show off what she had been taught and learned in front of an audience.
So she began her lessons. She actually didn’t learn all from her parents, she learned from the previous animal trainer, Jack. A man a bit older than her parents, but full of life and wonder like the whole circus. He wasn’t a patient man, he demanded a lot from even such a young girl. They began with just themselves. Teachings on how to sense reactions from the animals, to think of all possibilities. The first steps were to train her mind. Kaylin needed to know how to keep herself safe in case something went wrong. She also needed to know what caused things to go wrong, what she did that caused certain reactions and what she would need to do in return.
Next a whip was presented to her. A riding crop. One that took the least amount of control to handle, a long handle with a simple bat on the end. It furthered her concentration in the mind, but also allowed her to use an extension of herself as well. That’s how he wished her to think of it, a part of herself. With this, he taught her to move as if she were part of the whip. But also wanting her to get more responses out of the animal. Knowing how and where to move and/or strike to get the desired response.
All through these steps, she was also taught to keep a relationship with the animals. Not all reactions should be made out of fear or pain. Teamwork is also essential. This is partially where her father came in. He knew the animals, knew more about them than anyone. He spent time with Kit and the beasts, showing her their own personalities.
As well as animals, her mother taught her how to control her body. Strengthening it and expanding it in order to give her flexibility. All ranges of motion were opened up to her, in time. Control and concentration were taught, low wire walking helping her to accomplish this task and skill.
The last step before her performance was moving to another kind of whip. One that seemed to awe people to a greater level than the riding crop, the bullwhip. A long and flexible, braided leather whip, that can be used in a variety of different ways over that of the riding crop. Greater movement, greater strength, greater concentration… All of this was a much greater battle for the young McOlster. But over the previous training that consisted of three years, both her parents and Jack found her ready.
Years of training went into this as well. First without animals. Kaylin had to gain control on her own. Know how this whip would react to her movements. She needed accuracy to know where to strike. She needed strength to be able to handle it. And she needed a greater reaction time in order not to get injured. When her skills had developed enough to handle herself, her mother stepped in to teach her the ways of performing. How to grab a crowd’s attention, what she should wear, how she should act, etc. And onto the show she went!
To put it simply, Kit loved it. She wasn’t perfect for the first many times. She messed up a great deal, she got nervous, she miscalculated movements and responses. But the smiles were worth it. The freedom she felt in moving in front of others was worth it.. The laughs were worth it. Performing is something she could do the rest of her life.
Until she came to Death City, she never did think her life would change. She wanted to live in the circus for as long as it remained, performing and drawing smiles from anyone that came to watch. But that didn’t seem to be the plan for her life. She came to fall in love with something else. Death City was unique, it had a school that specifically focused on partners and talents. Kaylin found herself wanting to stay. Wanting to experience this odd sort of… education?
But on with the show at Death City it went, Kaylin forgetting all about the strange school! She was just as enthusiastic as ever, still loving entertaining just as much as she normally would. The smiles, the laughs, the joy. It ran through her veins just like the adrenaline rush she had. It wasn’t until they were packing up to leave the city that she got some interesting news from her parents. She had been invited to enroll at the very school she wished?
Apparently... someone had attended the show and noticed specific abilities in her. Her mother understood the situation slightly better than the rest, hearing stories of her ancestors since she was young. A special soul, different abilities... Someone from this school located in Death City had taken interest in the young McOlster. Someone had seen her soul?
Kaylin was ecstatic. She didn't understand, but she was excited. Her parents were not ones that would keep her from something that she wanted this desperately. So after a few conversations, with them, Jack, and the ringleader, Kaylin was given permission to stay in Death City. They would keep in contact, that was a must, but she was allowed.
And to school she went! It was a rough road for Kaylin for the first while. Granted, she didn’t fully REALIZE that it was a rough road. But through skipping classes, or accidentally tormenting students, she didn’t exactly get a great reputation. Teachers knew to beware, especially since she had been ‘punished’ once to help in the library, and ending up making a book fort and stamping all the students. She was a force no one understood. Except… one teacher caught her attention. The man focused on hands on training. Giving them something to do instead of trying to force her head into a book or focused discussion. It was something that rang with her from her history. A strict trainer, needing results and work. Just like Jack.
She flourished under this one teacher. Thoughts of expelling her had actually been passed around, but doubts began to cease as the girl continued to grow and understand (in her own way) just what the whole meister/weapon thing was about. In her time there, she found herself growing from the NOT class to the EAT class. Able to battle, and.. some would say… pretend that she was able to formulate a plan of attack. The girl remains a riddle to many, yet she still is attending school and climbing the ranks.
The real question is… Can anyone stand to partner her and trust her to take them farther?
Extra Notes: Only once has she had a partner in her past, and in that case she didn’t realize that was what their ‘friendship’ was. Their first meeting included them racing on the roof of his apartment. Making his apartment a mess because she can’t drink hot chocolate, or make it, without being sloppy. And even once… she tried to make out with the poor sucker because she couldn’t understand why this other pair of people were doing something so strange.
Kaylin is a transfer character, if applicable. Though she’s not much stronger than a beginning character here, on the site I had her I had accumulated 430 points with her.

Face Claim: Asuka Kazama/TEKKEN
RP Sample: He didn't say anything. It was odd. He was sort of wordy. Cocking her head to the side a bit, she looked more curious than anything. Here came beast, not another thing came from him. Odd... Cause he wasn't a joybringer today. People were like that. All random.
But a smile never left Kaylin's face, she was excited! Why? No real reason. It was sunny, this non-joybringing joybringer was here, she had her whip. It was a good day! The closer he came, the more she wondered why nothing was being done. Someone may have thought that was creepy, a male just slowly approaching with nothing else as to hint what was going on. It only intrigued Kaylin. It made her excited and anxious. What next? Should she hug him? Could they jump rope? Was he looking for a fairie? Many things ran through her mind.
That's when the man moved. His palm facing towards her, moving quickly straight at her. A high five? She raised her one hand as well, like she meant to recieve it, but at the same time her foot position shifted. She moved to the side. Well... more spinning to the side.
"You're too slow!"
The words were in reference to that high five joke. Up high, down low, then someone pulls their hand away and says they're too slow. But.... it never really occurred to her that it wasn't funny unless the rest of the joke was present. Laughing in her normal attitude, it still hadn't clicked yet. There was no fight going on, merely a more active male than she recalled.
Kaylin's eyes were following him. Though she didn't seem calm or less energetic, the fact that he was moving about was putting her in a slightly different mindset. It was like performing at home, or that dance that she went to. His movements and energy were helping her to focus, to see what was actually happening. Those times when people said paying attention was important.... Jack always said'If they're fast, you have to watch and be faster.'Though she never really got the underlying reality that he meant she had to protect herself from people willing to hurt her, she took the challenge that she had to be faster! What she learned was to pay attention so she could react. A normal day allowed her to be oblivious and still react in that mode. When someone challenged her senses, she kicked it up a notch from her training at home.
Now... that didn't make her smarter. Just pay attention. Like when the man dropped low, Kaylin's first reaction was to follow that movement. Why kneel? Was it secret time? DID SHE GET A SECRET? She couldn't keep secrets... silly man...
But her thoughts didn't throw her off a bit, she noticed him going for her legs. Trying to take her basis out. It was a close reaction. The man was fast. But she was too. He caught her a bit, but seeing as she forced herself forward, right at him, her hands using his shoulders as a stable point as she attempted to do a sort of handstand/flip over him, him catching her foot didn't really cause any danger to that action.
Laughing, Kaylin would enjoy this burst of energy from this man. She didn't know he was fighting, didn't think about it. She just knew this was fun. Her energy was being used, which always created more! Wasn't it great how life was? Full of grins and wonder, the Energetic Meister was beyond happy.
