CHARACTER NAME Kairi Johnson
- Tell us a little about yourself.
Unfortunately, I’m an orphan. I don’t know anything about my family—and I really wish I did! I’m also a student at the University of Colorado where I have an awesome boyfriend, Josh and my best friend Dakota.
- Tell us why you’re embarking on this adventure?
My adventure all started when I went with Josh on a spring break road trip to Padre Island, TX. I actually found …an engagement ring when I was packing the car! But it really went downhill from there when we ran into a tornado and then I got stranded by the side of the road. So, as for the ‘why’ I basically had to, I had to figure out what was going on so I could save myself and my friends.
- Do you have a moral code? If so what might it be
I definitely have a moral code. Since I don’t have a family, my friends are precious to me. I would do anything, and I do mean anything, to keep them safe.
- Would you kill for those you love?
- Would you die for those you love?
- Who is your greatest friend?
My greatest friend is Dakota, she’s my sister from another mister. We met in the foster care system and I’d do anything for her.
- How do you define ‘heroism?’
Heroism is showing up and standing up to difficulty even when you don’t understand what’s going on or you’re not sure you can succeed.
- Tell us about your family?
I wish I knew.
- What is your greatest skill/asset
I keep on going no matter what! Is that stubbornness? I guess it is.
I’m starting to get an inkling, however, that I might have a special power which might turn out to be my greatest skill/asset.
- What is your greatest weakness (we won’t tell).
I am much more insecure than I seem. I’m also very lonely. I get envious of other people who have families.
- How would you describe yourself?
I would describe myself to others as fiercely loyal and tough. With no family I’ve had to be tough and depend on myself.
- How do you think others see you?
I think others see me as a regular woman, but they’re wrong. Josh says I’m pretty…
