Kanya has a standard shape for a young homin woman, with a shapely thin waist and thick thighs. By some of her peers, her body shape is often compared to that of a pear.
She has an tawny complexion with a few freckles on her legs, shoulders and cheeks. Her dark brown hair is frizzy with tight wiry curls so she often leaves it out as an afro or combed into dreadlocks.
The hair on her tail is the same color but is straight and the typical length for a Homin. Her eyes are colored brown and they have the flat monolids characteristic to her jungle homin heritage.
Born and raised in a hot humid environment, Kanya is comfortable without wearing any clothes and being nude is relatively common in her home village. However when it is appropriate for special occasions or large groups of people, she wears a popular two piece outfit introduced to the village by Si'lat Jinn culture.
This outfit is a beige, chest length cropped top with fitted sleeves matched with a large sash of the same color wrapped around her lower body like a loincloth. Both are adorned with a sky blue stripe and dark blue circles.
Her most casual wear is a simple pale yellow cloth tied to her waist like a short skirt and sometimes one tied around her chest as well.
Kanya was born in Erisija Village residing in the Zomia Tropics. She was born with a very light complexion which ostracized her from some of her peers around her early childhood as she had to stay in on very sunny days. As such, she was more inclined to hang out with the woodland faye at that point. The magic done by them encouraged her to practice her own magic and martial arts skills which later encouraged her to join her village's performance group.
Her later friendships with non-humans has led her to wonder what lies beyond her. She also wonders about the family with the Jiniri who came to her tribe and found the settlement that her family lives in. That is why when she heard that Suleiman, the jiniri's son was returning, she became interested in meeting him.
Kanya is a determined woman open to finding new experiences. She likes to live in the moment and focuses on the here and now. She has a rebellious streak, as seen by her taking on a foreign nickname so that she could stand out. She is also very assertive when she is fed with those she knows like her younger sisters and brother.
Despite this, she is less sure of her self in a new situation or around new people. For example, she was interested in Suleiman when they first met but was nervous around him.
However encouragement from her best friend was enough to make her passionately kiss him at the end of her first date.
Adriana- Wood Fairy friend that lives within the trunk of the tree that her family calls home.

Fascinated by her magic, Kanya practiced her own people's magic and martial arts with her.
