Kalia was born to a noble family, one of a large 'flock' of children. She had several older and several younger siblings, and it is perhaps for this reason that her Gift manifested so suddenly and decisively. At age 12, she could feel and experience every emotion going on around her as though it was her own, and often times she experienced many at one time.
Anger and sorrow, love and hate, joy and irritation - all of it flooded the girl until she thought she was losing her mind. And to make matters worse, her telepathic abilities sprang into life around the same time. So not only could she feel their emotions, she could hear their every thought. It would not have been so bad, if not for the fact that her family's Keep was crammed full of her exuberant siblings, the staff, and her parents.
Thankfully, Kalia's family knew what to do. They began bundling the girl up with her possessions and an entourage of about a dozen servants, and they sent her off to Saint Antistia's Monastery the moment the spring thaws arrived
She spent eight years learning there - not because she was uneducated upon her arrival, but because she had so much else to learn besides what was expected of a nobleman's young daughter. Kalia learned that there was more to life than preparing to make someone a good wife. She learned survival skills, how to fight with a bo staff, how to properly aim and fire an arrow, and more. By the time she emerged from the Monastery at age 24, she was ready to take on the world.
That brings us to today, with Kalia traveling all over Geheim and occasionally Aerlion. At her side, her familiar Brielle, and a new, more experienced view of the world.
As one of the Monastery's prized horses, Brielle was bred from specialized stock and trained alongside Kaliatharian as she studied to become a fully-fledged Argent. Kalia was the one who trained the horse, or in other words, taught the mare to accept saddle and halter, and then the pair worked as a team to learn battle tactics, survival skills and other useful abilities.
Kalia's telepathy allows her to have a limited sort of communication with Brielle, though the horse does not speak in words that humans can understand. She does, however, have the ability to convey emotions and basic imagery that helps her partner understand what's going on in the mare's mind. For example, she can understand directions given to her by Kalia across a larger distance. She can convey confusion, excitement or fear. She can understand basic directions given to her in single words, like “Watch, stay, down, slow,” and so on, but not more than one or two words at a time.
Brielle was originally selected for Kalia because of the girl's upbringing. Kalia was the daughter of a nobleman who needed a Familiar that was steady, dependable, and solid. Not a horse that was prone to jumping at its own shadow, or one that was hard-headed or stubborn. Over the years, the two have become fast friends. Brielle loves her human partner, and defends her as though Kalia were her own foal.
