{ PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION }
With the build of someone physically quite active, Nalani makes no effort to hide the fact her muscles give her a little extra bulk. She dresses in often baggy clothing, and enjoys adorning herself with a mix of bright colors and duller ones. She has, though, a deep curve to her waist when it’s better displayed, and is no stranger to showing a little more skin during performance or a night out and about. She’s rarely seen with her hair undecorated with a flower or ribbon she found during her day or in her drawers. She always carries just a few too things wth her.

{ PERSONALITY }
Stubborn Quick witted Hot headed Bubbly

Nalani is first and foremost bright, both in intelligence and her outlook on the world. This is something she tries to emulate in every aspect of her socialization with varying levels of success. While somewhat naive in the way of social interaction, she tends to do it rather well due to her exuberant interest in others and their happiness. Very inquisitive she’s a constant time waster and during this seems to find herself in quite a few social situations. Despite this she’s still hopelessly awkward with socializing when she overthinks it, which is all too often especially when speaking with continental Americans.

That said, wherever she goes, Nalani tends to exude a certain familial vibe to those she feels fondest of, and they tend to find her very welcoming, she often gives a little too much of herself away to this family of hers, but it also becomes her lifeblood. She loves other people who love the ocean how she does. She’s quick to fall in love and it takes a lot to convince her to leave someone who has hurt her. That said, she tends to want things her way with those closest to her. She bosses her loved ones around and tends to take the matriarchal role in any group of friends. Nalani likes to be in charge and when her role as ‘in charge’ falters, she tends to lose her temper over it.

Not unknown to temper tantrums, Nalani is incredibly passionate and has a hard time subduing her expressions of her passions, good and bad. She’s indulgent and sometimes selfish, although never insincere. She is honest with her own wants and wishes, and with her thoughts of others. She despises people who she sees as liars or those who put fake faces to the world and has a hard time trusting them.

Nalani is also known for her grudges, her growing distaste for anyone who has wronged her enough to legitimately hurt her or her friends, knowingly and at all severely. She will never let go of a grudge once formed, just as she never forgets her debts.

{ HISTORY }
Nalani was born on Hawaii’s big island, but always felt boxed in anyway. As a kid, there were no shortage of other kids to play with, and she was born in the bad part of town. The part tucked away a bit from tourists where the poverty set in. Her parents were drug addicts, her father did carpentry and her mother did hula performances for tourists. Nalani spent endless hours on the local beaches with children of all kinds, but largely kept to feeding fish and watching everyone else. Even from a young age she was painfully awkward and naive when socializing with others. Even if she knew drugs and the dangers of her little home, she couldn’t even hope to foresee her social dangers.

When she was five Nalani began hula classes and never really stopped. She branched out into other styles of dance as soon as she was made aware of them, learning most avidly hip hop and animation styles from internet videos and tourists alike. She loved dancing from the beginning, and her inquisitive nature always made her hungry to learn more, even if it took a good few years and her hips coming in fully for her to find the right balance.

Nalani slept with a guy for the first time at thirteen, not unusual for island girls, and didn’t really ever think about it. It wasn’t ever an issue with her small group of ragamuffin island kids, and when her best friend, honorary sister, Kalua started using kava when they were fifteen, it only felt like a natural progression of life. It was, where she’d grown up. When kava became kava-and-heroin, and then kava-and-heroin became kava-and-meth, it was another ‘natural progression’, in Nalani’s mind. Her perceptions wheeled away from reality and flunking out of high school she had two options; give up, or keep fighting.

Kicking a meth habit was no easy task, the kava, she gave herself a little leeway with that. She needed a stepping stone, she said to Kalua when she tried to quit. Then Kalua had a near fatal overdose and the island felt far too small for Kalani. There were drugs behind every corner, easy. There were all the things she could do wrong stagnating on a tiny island surrounded by the biggest expanse of unlivable space known to the earth. As soon as she kicked the meth, Nalani was gone. Flying off to University, to audition, to see if she was good enough to find a stable spot in her own world. And she did.

{ THOUGHTS ON WDU }
Fleeing from her homeland, Nalani always wanted a safe place, but she wasn’t necessarily looking to university for that. She never had much faith in it, but feels that maybe WDU will give her a chance of a profession in dance in the future, and that’s all that matters to her for the moment. She’s hopelessly hopeful, but also cautious. She’s never been to a school like this before.
