RELATIONSHIP WITH PARENTS: affectionate disapproval; slightly strained as mum thinks I should be in a more staid and stable job; also you're working at a game shop, what? And Dad just doesn't get it, but he does get my passion for photography.
RELATIONSHIP WITH SIBLINGS: closer. Raina and I are a bit at odds, because I'm energy to her stuffiness. Reagan's the absolute best brother in the world. Melody is quiet and I love her to bits but we have a quiet affection. .
really secretly (quietly) adores her older sister, raina; the two are similar, but different, as the other carrigan offspring were sorted into gryffindor (reagan) and hufflepuff (melody) while both kira and raina are ravenclaws by nature. but kira also really adored her older brother, reagan, who was mischevious, protective and funny - basically, a good older brother. kira got to goof off with reagan a lot growing up, and he may have assisted or inspired a few of her... "experimental live-action art displays" (or pranks, depending on who you ask).
RELATIONSHIP WITH REST OF FAMILY: paternal grandparents are muggles, affectionate but not that close.

MORE ON CHARACTER:
- a basic restlessness & insatiable curiosity, drawn into the study of profound subjects, am willing to travel great distances in order to further my knowledge.
- I am self-sufficient, lively and outspoken.
- discerning, authoritative by suggestion, and I set high personal standards.
- a secret romantic who can be sensitive, vulnerable and self-critical; being a quatre-veela gets in the way of forming meaningful relationships
- crave love & affection; it's not always my motivation, but it lurks in my heart
- Keenly perceptive, I have an eye for detail
- I don't get angry easily, and I respond to insults with laughter and quips. It's prejudice, inequity, and blatant disregard for others' well-being. In such cases, I'm sharp-tongued and - courtesy of my veela-blood - my palms grow hot.
- i have distinct capacity and urge for revenge, humiliation;
- wicked tongue and sometimes I say things before thinking about them
- I struggle within myself around self-worth. I often think I'm not doing enough for the world.
