Personality: Karina is a more preserved, to-herself type of girl. While not at all talkative, she is capable of opening up more about herself as you get to be around her more. She gets strict when it comes to organization and will refrain from slapping you if she sees something out of line.
Background: Her parents moved to Asheville, North Carolina to be closer to their jobs at an airfield before Karina was born. Karina was their only child and as such she was pretty sheltered for most of her life. She grew up with a lot of kids who were also children of military parents; most of whom were women but in Karina's case, it's both. Now while her mother was out for long periods of time, this allowed her and her father to bond more. He taught her how to speak Russian on the side so she could communicate with her father's side of the family for either holidays or video chats. Karina's parents seemed to have noticed she grew a liking to playing on computers (which her mother claims came from her father) and even taking them apart (with a hammer).
By her middle school and high school days, Karina excelled in computer science and mathematics yet struggled with a few other classes. She did get picked on by a majority of girls for being a "nerd", but thankfully there were a couple other girls that had her back. She even did a lot of side projects with her father in reverse engineering a computer for when she moved on to college; and because of her father's being a professor at said university, she got a discounted tuition. One day while both her parents were working, she finished reconstructing one of their computers and the minute she rebooted it, a message popped up on the screen. She knew for a fact they were sure the computer would be ten times more secure from the firewall they installed but when she clicked on it to make it go away, a bright flash of light enveloped the room.
When she woke up, she found a ball of fluff sitting on her chest. The ball of fluff's eyes blinked at her and was just about to introduce himself when Karina screamed and attempted to crawl away from it. When she calmed down enough, the fluff introduced itself as Beekomon, and told her about who he was and why he was here. She looked at her watch to see how long she was out when she found it all purple and... modified? Beekmon then explained to her about a group within the Digital World called Sol and that she would be a perfect fit for them, considering he gave her the Knowledge shard. She heard her parents call out her name and they found her scrambling around her room wondering where to hide Beekomon but her mother took a better look at him and just about fell in love with him, even calling him cute. Her father was skeptical of the situation even when both Karina and Beekomon told them briefly about why he was here. Even though her father was reluctant on his only child to stay here, her mother seemed to get the idea of protecting the Digital World thanks to being a pilot for a military.
Weeks go by and Karina, 19 now and in college, was on her way home from her night class when some drunk college kids assaulted her. She told Beekomon to stay in hiding in her backpack but busted out when he heard Karina screaming to make them go away. He headbutted one of her assailants but was quickly kicked back and into some bushes. Karina fought and fought, wishing Beekomon would help her again; and that right there was when her watch, her Digivice, began to glow and Beekomon as well. He came running at them with a cry of "DRACO SCRATCH!!" but Karina knew that wasn't Beekomon. He scratched at her assailant's faces, drawing a little bit of blood and had them running. When all was calm, Karina looked down at her Digimon and saw he was as tall as her hips, had a torn sash around his waist and had a fluff at the tip of his tail. Her partner turned to her and he gave her a happy look, saying he wasn't Beekomon now but Zemeymon. Karina got to her knees and hugged Zemeymon tightly, thanking him for saving her.
