— has shortened his name to kai to blend in with "modern ages"
age. appearance wise he looks to be 13 months
like amun, cairo is a jaguar, though their pelt greatly contrasts amun's black counterparts. while cairo used to be of normal coluring, a warm sandy brown with darker brown markings, his pelt is now almost white with beige markings. through their journey to follow amun, a great deal of stress was placed on their shoulders, having lost not only a lover but also their best friend the stress eventually caused their pelt to change colour. their eyes are almost haunting, and while are generally viewed as a hazel, sometimes seem to change to a warm purple, but this is never for more than a flicker of a moment.
cairo, much like a teddy bear, is warm and strong, at least, they used to be. there's a part of kai that has always cared for others, cared for life in a way that many are incapable of understanding. they absorb things in a way many cannot. they have a habit of picking out small details, an odd stitch in a rug or an old scar on a leaf. the way someone's tone or movement has changed, for some reason, unbeknownst to even them, they are always able to pick up on it. there's something about kai that makes him incapable of detaching himself from emotions, he easily sympathises with others, but this also leaves him easily hurt. it is when someone he has begun to care for seems to be in the way of harm that another side of him begins to stir, see, in his quest of locating his lost love, he was forced to take measures he had never wished to. he had absorbed a part of Sekhmet's soul. this gave him not only his immortality, but it also gave him the strength to do what he must. when those he cares for are threatened, he becomes violent and unstable, a part of himself that claims to be sekhmet rising to the stage, although, in reality, it is simply a different personality he has developed in order to deal with the stuff in life he can not. as of late, he has become increasingly unstable and sad, at first this is not noticeable but after a while it becomes obvious.
disorders. multiple personality disorder, bipolar
cairo grew up in ancient Egypt, he was a scholar and a soldier, someone who wished for peace but was left no choice but to fight for his ruler. it was during this period in his life where he met amun. cairo had never felt love before but, it wasn't long after they'd met, that he did. he fell hard and fast, though it was when amun grew sick that he began to change. while cairo assumed that his alternate personality is sekhmet, it actually developed during this time. scared of losing the only one he'd cared about, he went to great measures to find an old ritual that would bind amun's soul to one of the gods/goddesses. though this ritual required sacrifice, and cairo was not the sort of man to kill another for something like this, and thus, the alternate personality was created. a defence mechanism against the evils he wished he did not have to commit. though it seemed that, even after all his troubles, that cairo would not be able to see amun again. cairo was heartbroken, but, his love was still strong and he vowed he would find a way to follow amun. it was during these times that his alter-ego became more prominent, more and more blood being stained onto his paws. in search of a solution, he'd become a serial killer, and perhaps that was why it was Sekhmet who came in his time of need. in exchange for a hundred hearts, he was offered the chance to take part of Sekhmet's soul. absorbing that amount of power though changed the jaguar's body and very nearly killed him, but, afterwards, he was able to follow Amun to the world he inhabits now.
