Strengths:
Kind - A warm soul, she has a generosity about her that could save the world were she in the position to do so.
Trustworthy - A keeper of many secrets, once Kaya's word is given to maintain silence, it is one she would never break, even under durress.
Clever - As a woman living in a man's world, Kaya must be clever to keep from others taking advantage of her business or trying to steal away the good she has done.
Resourceful - With her kindness, Kaya has secured herself a small legion of helpers to ensure her business can run smoothly. With her rapid-fire wit, she tends to find ways out of trouble quite readily.
Dislikes:
Abusers
Funerals
Liars
Rough Textures
Flaws:
Stubborn - Once her mind is made up, even the brute force of a dragon can't change it.
Impulsive - Trusting her instincts, she tends to make snapshot decisions.
Competitive - Never one to back down from a challenge, Kaya has a fiery drive to succeed even if others wish for her to falter.
Immoral - In the eyes of many, Kaya may be considered one of the drudges of high society with her secret back-room happenings and whispered deals.
Habits & Mannerisms:
When Kaya is deep in thought, she may bring her finger index finger up to her mouth in an unconscious shushing gesture to encourage those around her to quiet down.
General Personality:
Kaya is a naturally kind-hearted individual. She frequently practices altruism expecting no reward. She is reverent of her supposed responsibilities towards others. Raised as a healer, she believes she is honor-bound to care for those who come to her for help, whatever they may be. Even those who others would deem evil are treated with kindness. This is not to say Kaya is a fool; rather, she can be quite devious.

Kaya carries herself with dignity and grace, but she is not always forgiving. She carries a long memory and those who have sought to harm her or hers may find themselves without her help in the future, though it aches at her soul to deny it.

One thing her grandmother never could quite temper in her is Kaya's impatience. She can be readily frustrated when things do not go as she plans which makes her prone to outbursts that seem rather explosive in the normally demure woman.

Secrets:
It is whispered about among the women of the Hold and even outside its borders that Kaya has knowledge young women out of wedlock may find beneficial should they find themselves carrying unwanted seed.

Kaya's departed husband was sterile. As a youth, Kaya spent an evening with a young man which resulted in a pregnancy that she terminated to save her family's reputation. Despite multiple attempts over the course of their marriage, fruit never came to bear and it was assumed she was the barren one. Kaya has never attempted to rectify the rumors.
Known:
Kaya is the owner of a shop within Igen Hold by the name of Anahata Apothecary. She supplies various herbs, tonics, and concocted medicines available for sale and fair trade.

Kaya is known to provide meals to orphaned children every other evening.

By some, she is seen as an inappropriate spinster who is barren and therefore undesirable to be wed.
Important History:
06.26.706. (0).
Descended from a long line of wandering desert traders on her maternal side, Kaya was raised as all the women in her family had been for generations. By tradition, every girl had been taught the ways of healers and wise women regardless of what their husbands wanted while the boys were left to the whims of their fathers. In a nod to her father and her grandmother, her name was taken from both.

706-710. (0-4)
After the premature death of her parents, her father the year she was born followed by her mother four years later, Kaya was primarily raised by her grandmother, Kadija, who had accompanied her parents in their move to Igen Hold before Kaya had been born. Despite being an older woman raising a little girl on her own, Kidija maintained the Apothecary Kaya's father had originally built for her mother.

710-721. (4-17)
Kaya grew quickly, taking to learning like a bird to flying. Under her grandmother's tutelage, Kaya was taking care of patients of her own by the time she was 17 years old and gained her own following from there.

715-716. (9-10)
During the time of her tutelage, there were many things happening within the Weyrs. News that dragons had caught the plague spread like wildfire. Those who lived within the Weyrs retracted, returning to their bases and closing borders to outsiders. The following year, the dragons and their riders disappeared. While panic was widespread, there were many grateful for no longer having to pay tithes and higher taxes. Small businesses flourished, the Apothecary among them.

721-730. (17-24)
Kaya spent these years refining her practice and skills, coming out from under the watchful eye of her grandmother to work mostly on her own, though Kadija still saw her own patients who preferred the older woman's experience to her granddaughter's youth and vigor. Though there were suitors, as one would expect, Kaya had no interest following a fling when she was 16 years old that resulted in an unplanned pregnancy, and her grandmother saw no need to marry her off when they were doing quite well for themselves as they were. For those who were most insistent, Kaya found ways to spread rumors about herself that would make her less of a candidate for unwanted affections.

730-732. (24-26)
By the time Kaya had become marrying age, a young Holdman, Kijani, had become enamored with the young healer and asked for her hand in marriage. He spent two years courting her as she spent most of her time tending to patients instead of partaking in romance. Despite his ability to decline, Kaya had made her own counteroffer that she would only accept his hand if he embraced who and what she was, including continuing care for her aging grandmother.

732-735. (26-29)
Married in 732, Kaya and Kijani had experienced the love of a lifetime. With their roles switched, Kijani served as a pupil to both Kaya and Kadija, though he ran the Apothecary in the public eye. The pair seemed to have life figured out and were living it to their fullest. Their business was thriving and healthy enough that even the return of dragons, and the subsequent tithes, did little to affect their practices. It wasn't until 735 that Kijani was killed in a freak accident involving a merchant cart that Kaya's life was turned upside down.

735. (29)
Grief-stricken after Kijani's death, Kaya struggled alongside her ailing grandmother to pick up the shattered pieces of her heart and carry on. Without Kijani in their lives to make things smoother, Kaya suffered many unwanted advances and offers of marriage until she started a rumor that she was barren and unwanted. After that, the offers dwindled before finally ceasing altogether.

736. (30)
The hard hits didn't stop coming for Kaya, and she suffered the second-biggest loss of her life when her grandmother finally succumbed to chronic illness at the age of 75.

736-Current. (30-Current)
On her own, Kaya struggled to maintain the Apothecary on her own for the following year but managed to find her feet once more as she grieved properly and allowed herself to move on. Since then, Kaya has been fulfilling the needs of her community with the confidence of a skilled merchant.

740. (34)
Kaya rekindled the spark of affection with the young man from her childhood. Only now, he is the Lord of Igen, wedded to another with other mistresses. Kaya is unbothered by the other women, understanding his position. She is convinced she had her shot at love. What she gets from this relationship is company and a balm for loneliness that strikes from time to time.

Education
Craft:
Healer (Unofficial)
Date(s) Tapped:
N/A - Kaya did not receive an "official" education and was tutored by her grandmother.
Speciality:
Women's health
Strengths:
There is no greater strength for a healer than experience. Kaya has served as a surgeon, midwife, dentist, and so on for those without great means to afford healers with formal educations. She is unafraid of doing everything she can to help another, which truly makes her an asset to her community.
Weaknesses:
No formal education. Kaya relies on older remedies or those she has self-taught and learned over the years. She does attempt to maintain relations with healers in the Weyrs and other Holds, but her lack of formal education often bars her from obtaining knowledge by direct routes.

Pet Details

Atin (ah-teen) - 11-year-old dapple grey stallion. As he was raised among a herd of mares, Atin is very polite among mares and geldings. He can be incredibly combative with other stallions. Anyone who attempts to use heavy-handed techniques with him may find themselves dumped unceremoniously on the ground and further attempts at violence can lead to vicious kicks. He was a gift from Kaya's late husband and she dotes on him endlessly.
