Mid to High-level Imagineering
-------= Can use some instances of high-level imagineering, but usually utilizes mid-level imagineering magicks instead.Personality||
He's a bit of a busy-body when it comes to people, and loves to guess what others are thinking, though he doesn't always get it right since he has a habit of guessing often. He loves long-lasting bonds and connections because of his amnesia("if he forgets some he can remember the rest" mentality).
Said amnesia is brought on by his need to drink at least eight bottles of water everyday so that his steam engine works. If he doesn't drink enough water, he'll slowly stop functioning and the steam he vents will slowly become less and less, consistently slowing down his movements and coherency. If he's completely dehydrated, he will shut down.
When and if he shuts down, he gets a case of amnesia: the severity of the amnesia(how much he forgets) varies randomly.
He's very strong even for an automaton in terms of physical strength(which would explain how he manages to swing around a huge, heavy anchor in a fight).History/Background||
Kait was built by a 17-year old girl, "The Lady", in her lonesome shack in a forest unreachable by simply walking on foot unless you didn't mind the interruption of several obstacles(such as man-eating plants, a moat-like river, serpents, etc.). She worked three years to complete her first creation, Kait. He was originally designed after a fictional character in one of her story books, who roamed the land seeking danger, adventure, and gold, finding love and friendship along the way. And, he was designed to be fitted to her. He was a BRIDE. Just for her.
However, The Lady soon grew sad of seeing Kait's face: he was, she understood, not a perfect replication of the man in the storybook. She had grown to see, accept, and love that. But deep inside, she saw -- or imagined she saw, in any case -- a great desire within Kait, to travel the world as the man he had been based off had done. So, she made a decision. She would give herself a time limit for his company.
Carefully, she pieced together her second automaton: a puppy. The time she had taken to build it -- 2 weeks -- had been her 'time limit'. She christened it BUNNY00-X, and presented it to Kait. She then instructed him to go out into the world, travel, explore, discover... and never return.
Kait had been developed as the perfect partner, whether or not he had any 'feelings' to her or anything like that. And as the perfect partner, he was obedient. He perched the puppy on his shoulder, kissed The Lady's hand, and waved goodbye. He walked out into the world, the puppy staring, back at the shack they were leaving behind, over Kait's shoulder. Neither said anything, but as soon as Kait had stepped out of the Forest Where They Lived, he held Bunny up high over his head and grinned. "We'll be back," he said mysteriously.
Bunny, of course, said nothing, and licked his nose.
Going back on her word, The Lady accepts Kait as a visitor every so often, though she perseveres to turn him away firmly if he returns three times in the same year.
She has since built two more automatons who take care of her in her shack. She is, at present time, 42-years old. Still very weak, but still very alive.Job||
-------= Kait catches fish, hunts animals, and sells the meat to towns he passes by. He does not require animal flesh for sustenance, and so doesn't keep any on him at any time. However, in extremely dry places he may store the blood and thin it with a little water for emergency use. If possible, he disposes of it once he's back in a water a-plenty place.
Kait has no need for furs to keep warm, either, and so sells on skins as well. However, should he find his own furs getting a bit dirty or the like, he keeps the prettiest-looking furs of the lot to himself.Likes||
Exploring and discovering new things
Shiny objects(he thinks they're really pretty when they sparkle in sunlight)
Bunny's key (see: "Shiny objects")
Cool, windy places, with a view of a lake, river, or ocean when possible.Dislikes||
Hot, dry places
People forgetting he's an automaton (it's not difficult to miss the steam, which becomes an almost completely transparent white when he's content and relaxed) (it makes him sad)
People asking/wondering about his right eye (it's sewed shut, like the character in the storybook, but The Lady always called it ugly and Kait's developed a trauma)Info||
His serial number, BRIDE17, is not actually anything more than a label. There were no BRIDE automatons before him: The Lady simply gave him that number because it was her age at the time of his completion.
Surprisingly(or not), he doesn't seem to care if you mistreat Bunny, since Bunny is an automaton and is particularly difficult to break since the parts are all so close together in a compact object. However, he will react if you notice Bunny's keyhole or go straight for Bunny's key.
Bunny's key is attached to a string around Bunny's neck; both of which are hidden under his fur.
As an automaton he can't actually get scars, but The Lady designed him with them "because they make [him] look cool".
The back of his neck and his left thigh also have 'scars', but they are not often noticeable because they are covered by his clothing.
