Kendra Clayton – where’d she come from?

Kendra spends a lot of time at RIT – Oak & Rowan, the gaming club, Interfaith Council, Go club, anime club – for someone who has yet to take a single class at the college and does not show up on the rolls – not only not at RIT, but at any college currently.

Kendra is a ringer, of sorts – she enjoys college life, enjoys college people, but hasn’t, herself, been college-aged since a time when they didn’t allow women into most schools. She has no interest in taking classes, finding the social life to be far more educational.

Kendra isn’t the name she was born with, but it’s the name on all her current paperwork. She has a house near campus, and spends most of her time there, attending clubs and gatherings – she has a job which she works from home, allowing her an excuse for her house-and-income more than actually taking care of the bills.

She’s been at RIT for about 10 years, in the way that she is “at” a school, floating from club group to club group; if the apocalypse had not come when it did, it would have been about time for her to move on.

She’s an average-to-short girl at about 5’4″, slender but athletic in build, with straight chestnut hair cut close and eyes that seem to be almost red in the right light. She’s a halfbreed; she has a fae-like Change that she never, ever shows, and an ability to shift the temperature of a room or area by up to 100 degrees Celsius.

She has found that she’s attached to the Oak and Rowan group, with its misfits, and isn’t quite sure what to do with that.
