Freya Kylan was born to two of the strictest Foxfire mentors teaching there - Dorian and Lilliana Kylan, both part of the Nobility - and that really shaped her future. As a child, unlike other young elves, Freya would be forced to roam in her own house, pushed to help her parents with schoolwork and other such stuff. While she silently mourned not being able to go out and enjoy living life like a kid should, Freya grew to realize that her parents had been helping to mould her into a perfect "image" others would want to look up to. It wasn't until much later - around her young teens - that she found out that it wasn't for her own sake, but rather, for their own.
As Freya matured, the strictness thrown at her increased to such heights it flew through the roof. Dorian and Lilliana pushed for her to be the best at everything - school, extracurricular activities, even things like kindness and being polite. Whatever it was, Freya had to excel at it, and it would be the understatement of the century to say it put some pressure on her shoulders.
Once she hit the age of ten, her parents' had another child, who essentially became her younger sibling. At first, Freya was ecstatic about it. She finally had someone to play with! Someone who wouldn't shove so many expectations in her face. Someone who would just let Freya, well... be herself.
Yet when reality punched her in the face once more, it came as a not-so-shocking surprise - if you can even call it that - that her parents' preferred George, her baby brother, over her. While he was showered with affections and gifts and parents who wouldn't even hesitate for a single second to spoil him, she was stuck in her own room with piles of "before-school" work to finish to "show her worth". It maliciously sparked a hint of jealousy in her and she'd often give her brother a cold shoulder, not deeming herself as the older sister he didn't deserve. Poor George had to live with the one person who he truly looked up to look down upon him. Freya knew this was a selfish thing to do and she'd lay in bed wondering why her life had to be like this and hoping she could still change her attitude.
Once the time for her to start Foxfire came around, her future had already been set up for her. It was around this age that she started to wonder if her parents' assurance that them forcing her to be the best was really just a whole bunch of lies to convince themselves that they were doing the right thing.
Fast-forwarding to her as a student in Foxfire, Freya quickly became one of the more popular kids. With her stunning looks, fiery personality, and genius mind, others' came to love her and adore her, especially other mentors. And this is where the change came in.
Once hearing this, Dorian and Lilliana started showing off their daughter, as if she were some trophy to be put on display. It really, really hurt Freya, knowing that her parents' thought that little of her, yet she still stood with it, being the "perfect" daughter she is. Except, of course, little acts of rebellion. Just little ones, okay? She swears that setting the Silver Tower on fire had not been her fault! Neither was flooding the cafeteria. And that boy was getting on her nerves, all right? The severely broken face will heal. They're elves, after all.
A few weeks after her fourteenth birthday, Freya was chilling by the lake, one of her favourite spots from when she was little. RIght then and there, she felt a draw to the water, as if it was calling her. In a trance, she walked over, eyes dazed, and touched the drops of water when they suddenly flew up and fell into a sphere. Freya's eyes widened as she realized what this meant: she was a Hydrokinetic.
The only person she truly connected with, though, was Zoran, and he and Freya were best friends until the end. Perhaps even longer, They knew each other better than they knew themselves. Freya had thought that they would never get separated.
Until the day she found out that Zoran's family - and him - were all involved with the Neverseen and turning out to be the traitors Freya never would have thought they were.
And then she found out that Zoran himself had been betrayed as well then sent off to be killed - never heard from again.
Ever since that day, now at the age of 17, she closed off from people, often pushing them away. She'd hide behind her sweet and charming mask, and behind it, there was an entire storm raging about. To this day, she struggles with ever finding someone she can truly hold in her heart. Sometimes, she even wonders if she's forever meant to be alone for the rest of her life.
