Questionnaire 21. How does your character interact with the others within a group?
While Kiva tends to work by herself or with one other adventurer, as opposed to a solid group, she's not opposed to it. She's willing to trust first, and only argue later if her companions are shown to be inept through their actions. If someone proves themselves to be really badass, she'll tend to fall in lockstep behind them, because oh wow that is really cool.
2. What is your character's role in a group?
Melee Damage, Low Maintenance. She's a front-line fighter, albeit one that doesn't require enchanted weaponry or armor, which shores up more funds for the squishier members of the group. She can throw her mindblades at a short distance, but it's not very far.

In leadership terms, she's the second fiddle. Someone will tell her what to do, she may or may not question it, but at the end of the day she'll go along with what everyone else seems to think is great. It's probably not worth arguing over, and if it is, she's probably not the best voice to argue it. She's not the party face, as she knows she'll eventually say something off-putting that causes people to stare blankly at her in confusion.

3. How is your character not as they seems? I want one or two skills that would surprise others if they found out he knows them. Also include personality traits, positive or negative, that would similarly surprise others.

4. What are your character's goals, conscious and, perhaps, subconscious?

5. How easily does your character love? Have they been in love?
Love is too strong a word for her. She gets smitten with people, but it's nothing as strong as that. Young love, if you will.
6. Is your character racist at all, either now or in their past?
Not in a harmful sense. She takes keen appreciation of what makes different races strange, but doesn't use it to judge maliciously. She does tend to like the skinnier races though, as a matter of personal beauty.
7. All people believe something that is not true, both about the world around them and about themselves. What lies/untruths does your character believe about themselves and the world around them?
She has a definite sense of It's a Small World. She's lived all her life that she knows of in Korvosa, and doesn't really seem to get the idea of an outside world. Someone says that they're from "far away", and she'll think of the other side of town.

In less serious terms, she does not know where food comes from, and assumes that it comes from underground. All the food storage she's seen around the inn is in the basement, so perhaps that's the best place for them?

8. How is your character about material possessions?
She doesn't get too hung up on things of luxury, preferring instead to value items that are comfortable or convenient. Yes yes, you have your fancy ball gown, but this jacket has pockets enchanted to hold twice as much stuff. That's handy, dammit.
9. What does your character perceive their major problems to be?
She has a minor case of serious brain damage, and the absolute assurance of her brain that she knows who did it. It's these sorts of things that keep you up at night, wondering who you might have been, or who you really are.
10. What does he perceive the solutions to those problems to be?
Gaedren knows something, and like all bad people, he is best solved with violence. It's likely she'd get very lost and confused if he didn't actually know anything about her, or gave her information that was contradictory to what she'd like to believe.
11. What are your character's religious beliefs?
She's not really beholden to any domain of worship. The gods are really large people in the sky, who are symbolic and such. Kiva doesn't get why there needs to be people symbolic of stuff. Why can't people just have the stuff, and call it what it is, rather than attaching a divinity to it?
12. What does your character fear?

13, How much of a temper does your character have? What sorts of things set them off?
It's a calm sort of temper. Injustice, people being jerks, that sort of thing can cause her to get really snippy. This is a warning sign that she's preparing to make it clear she doesn't tolerate that sort of thing, and has the mindblades to make a stand over it.

Before I continue reading and come up with some questions and comments, I wanted to ask you to change your font to black. I'm colorblind and the blue makes it very difficult for me to read .

Done! Sorry about that, hope it's legible now.

How does she know that Gaedren is connected to her memory loss? Is it a name she remembers, a note she found in her handwriting, a vague memory, or did someone tell her?

Kiva feels incredibly ill-at-ease with her own body, whenever she stops to rest.
What do you mean by when she stops to rest? Can she not sleep well? Does she not sleep?

Could her feelings towards Ur'Kosh really be just a childish understanding of being attracted to him?

It's a name she remembers, and an incredibly strong gut feeling. She doesn't remember specifics, but she's utterly sure that he's involved somehow. Given how little she had memory wise, the fact that there's something there means that she's rather sure it's important, and not at all the product of an addled mind.

The whole "committing violence for money" thing is a good distraction. It's basically whenever she's got time to herself, and isn't preoccupied with other things that the feelings surface. She sleeps as well as any person with serious brain damage can, though bizarre nightmares are more common than with a well-adjusted person.

Quite possibly. Both Kiva and Ur'Kosh would be mortified if this were actually the case.

So she remembers a name and a gut feeling, but for all she knows (though she doesn't suspect), Gaedren could be an ally and friend, instead of a villain?

Yes. *whatatwist!*

She lives in a back room in Surt's bar/inn. It's not a very wonderful living arrangement, but it serves as a good place to crash. He feeds her too, given that she technically works through him in her roughhousing job.
