Kazakov Ira Yanovich (a.k.a. Kazzy, Kaz, Yannie)
Kazakov Ira Yanovich goes by many titles- the mechanic, the engineer, the gay snake, and the secret softie. All are true. While she seems rough-n-tough on the outside, she wouldn't hurt a fly that didn't deserve it, and tends to have a quiet, soft aura. While she struggled for most of her life on many aspects, she tries to get better and be better, even if there's down days.
General Physical Condition
Kazakov is a rather well-toned, "butch," tall woman, easily intimidating to many people. The only visible physical affliction is poor eyesight, signified by glasses. Internally, Kazakov has a weak immune system and gets sick quite easily.
Her skin tone is dark, contrasting silver-white hair. Her hair is often kept in a high ponytail and is rarely ever let down, though it may be kept in box braids on occasion. Kazakov tends to have stiff body posture, either crossing her arms or sticking them in jacket pockets.
Kazakov has a general square-shaped jawline with a rounded chin. Her nose is rounded and sort of big. She has two sets of eyes, the bottom being smaller than the top, sort of slanted. Her eyebrows are affixed in a way that gives her a stoic, bored look. Her mouth is in a permanent frown, but when she does smile, her fangs will poke out.
Kazakov has several natural markings; the gaia/metal symbol that takes up the entirety of her back, facial markings, and the light green stripes on her arms, legs, and face, which is a result of being feral. She only has two matching tattoos of ball pythons, circling her upper arms on both sides. Her ears a elf-like, and both have lobe piercings and her left ear has an industrial piercing. She also has a tongue piercing. Aside from those, Kazakov has a variety of scars from battle wounds, accidents, and self-infliction. The most notable scar is on the left corner of her mouth; it's in a mostly straight line, but larger in the middle. Atop her head is curved horns, small in size.
Kazakov dominant hand is left, but is overall ambidextrous. She also has a severe chocolate allergy, though tends to forget.
Due to being a gaia-metal mix, Kazakov has metal morphing abilities and a natural green thumb. The double set of eyes enhance perception, though she usually keeps the bottom set closed.
Apparel & Accessories
Kazakov has a rugged look about her in public; leather jackets, dark jeans, combat boots, fingerless gloves. Her glasses are square-framed and a dark olive colour. Typically, Kazakov likes over-sized sweaters and hoodies, favouring comfort clothes at home and workless days. She doesn't wear much jewelry, aside from a ball python pendant, earrings, and gold-coloured rings on her horns.
Due to being a motorbike rider, she carries a visor that transforms into a helmet. Aside from that, she carries a badge and gun on work days, but generally has no other weapons or specialized items.
Kazakov's life became difficult after she fell into her grandfather's hands- who napped her before she turned six. She became feral from being in an abusive environment, later found by an officer named Glasha, who returned her to her family. Her parents struggled to reform her properly, causing her in turn to struggle developing relationships with other people. While she managed to pass the school years, she was usually left alone, but maintained a close relationship with her family.
During the last few years of the Aystrian War and when she was 32, Kazakov enlisted into the Afoyan military, becoming a skilled sniper. She met her best friend- Leia, and later, her fiancee, Yakusai Kenta. However, Kenta died later from sickness during K3113, a year before the war ended. In K2114, Leia suffered from a mine explosion, resulting in the loss of her arms. Kazakov was also injured and hospitalized after her attempt to rescue Leia. Both of them were eventually discharged, and the war ended soon thereafter.
Kazakov was unable to return to Akai, not ready to face loneliness following the death of Kenta. Leia offered a room in her home, until she could get back on her feet, but Kazakov eventually moved in permanently. Later, she set up a small mechanic shop, though eventually followed Leia into police work, keeping her shop as a side-job.

Accomplishments & Achievements
Kazakov's goals were quite simple- survive school and graduate. So she did, and for a time, it was a big accomplishment. Then, it became surviving on the battle field. Which again, was a big accomplishment. Later, it became the little things that other people probably wouldn't have considered- having friends, managing to get out of bed everyday, opening up to close friends, seeking help- that became massive achievements.
Failures & Embarrassment
Generally speaking, younger Kazakov's inability to socialize and social anxiety always made her feel like a massive failure- she couldn't do group projects, she closed herself off, and everything she did she felt would amount to nothing. If she ever did screw something up, it felt like a massive embarrassment, even if nobody was really paying attention or cared. Older Kazakov hasn't felt this as heavily, but it still lingers there, causing her to be rather cautious over her words and actions.
One failure that haunts Kazakov is her failure to save a little girl from drowning. Unable to get to her in time, she refused to forgive herself for the girl's death and carried the guilt even after the war ended. It took awhile, but she eventually forgave herself after admittedly being told that the girl couldn't have been saved in time regardless, and ended up becoming rather protective of children. Kazakov still thinks about from time to time, though.
Due to her grandfather's physical and verbal abuse and isolationism, Kazakov went feral, an affliction that happens with Saphirians and Joix in those situations. It also caused life-long problems with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and psychosis, as well as developing autophobia (fear of loneliness) and angrophoba (fear of anger). Eventually, dependent personality disorder was also discovered, sometime after meeting Leia. Overall, most of them became manageable overtime with the use of medication and therapy.
Intellectual Humility, Fair-mindedness, and Perseverance.
Morality & Philosophy
Kazakov attempts to be somewhat neutral, wishing to understand both sides of the argument and how to meet in the middle, though she is rather biased when it comes to her closer friends. While mainly unaffected by small-time criminals, even sometimes sympathetic for "stealing bread" thieves, she shows a high disregard for crimes against children and young adults. Kazakov also dislikes the notion of "tough love" from her personal experience, claiming it's contradictory and used to justify abuse, and she doesn't agree with negative reinforcement, either. Regardless, she has her heart in the right place, though her execution may have bad timing or is just bad at conveying emotions. Overall, Kazakov has a "I'm trying my best" tone, as well as a "do no harm but take no shit" policy.
Kazakov remains in her culture's societal norms when it comes to taboos- such as not dating ones' own family, "dating" a corpse, eating somebody unless in a very, very, dire situation (such as being lost for a long time or shipwrecking on some distant island, as long as they're dead before being consumed), and committing awful crimes, etc. Despite what can be considered common sense and justifiable, she also has internalized older norms, such as Joix avoiding pursuing Anifs as mates. Kazakov attempts to get over this old taboo, but sometimes slips up.
Kazakov's motivations come from the underlying need to earn her own forgiveness and prove herself to not only other people, but herself, about how she's not a bad person and deserves the love she receives from people. Other than that, motivations vary depending on the day.
Savvies & Ineptitudes
She's very good with growing plants and operating on machinery and automobiles, as well as metalsmithing. She's also good at sewing, picking it up from her mother, is a mostly self-taught bass guitarist, and is actually quite adept at singing and dancing- preferably to swing, being rather bad at most Akain jigs. Kazakov isn't the greatest when it comes to video games and tends to lack patience with puzzles, even if she could do them.
Likes & Dislikes
Kazakov has a love for snakes of all kind, but generally favours pythons, owning two. She also loves hagga- a fruit akin to a pomegranate-, rice, and meat. She prefers coffee, juice, and tea, disliking soda and alcohol. She favours the colours purple, green, gray, and while typically disliking bright colours, is actually quite fond of orange and yellow. Kazakov tends to enjoy sci-fi based entertainment, as well as adventure and mystery, but dislikes horror in general. She gravitates towards jazz, electric swing, regular swing, and alternative rock when it comes to music, though doesn't really dislike any other genre. She also loves motorbikes over cars, though is fond over her work car. Kazakov is huge into physical affection, preferring cuddling and hand holding over sex- though doesn't dislike the notion of it either. Kazakov absolutely hates child crimes and her grandfather, as well a general dislike for swimming.
Virtues & Personality perks
Kazakov is a rather charming person, dutiful and protective, as well as caring and patient towards people. She tries to be sympathetic and open-minded as often as she can be. Kazakov is dedicated and loyal to her close friends and family.
Vices & Personality flaws
While choosing not to act upon it, Kazakov is a bit of a sadist and is unintentionally dominating. She tends to fall back on pet-like behaviour around specific people or with certain moods. She's also rather self-critical and self-punishing on occasion, which had result in self-harm and suicidal thoughts/attempts in the past. Kazakov also tends to repress memories, leaving many parts of her childhood blank. She gets urges to bite something when anxious or angry, taking it out on her tongue, lips, or fingers. This is often countered by a certain type of cigarette, and while it's not entirely harmful, it's still a problem.
When listening to music and not spoken too or acknowledged for a while, Kazakov will begin to quietly sing along. While she's focusing on something, she'll stick her tongue out or bounce her leg. When frustrated or impatient, she often pinches the bridge of her nose. She often covers her mouth if she laughs.
Due to her side-job in dealing with automobiles, Kazakov has a permanent fuel and grease smell about her, but keeping plants around the house and working with them also give her a flowery plant smell as well. She tends to shower on a normal basis regardless. While her room is a mess of clothes, the rest of the house is typically clean.

Kazakov is not wholly devout, but certainly believes in the deities.
Kazakov is socially reclusive and prefers to stay quiet and observe. Sometimes she'll butt in with a advice or her opinion, but otherwise lacks confidence to speak up. Her politeness and speak-when-spoken-to mannerisms may be a result of her anxiety.
Hobbies & Pets
Kazakov makes metal sculptures and jewelry to sell on the side. She also plays bass guitar when she's bored or having trouble sleeping. She owns two pet snakes, Kirilka and Sputnik, and a cat, Roku.
Her voice is actually quite deep and she has a thick accent, akin to some version of Russian. She hardly ever raises her voice, either. Kazakov has broken Fepsuin, omits words, and sometimes switches back to her mother language when forgetting words or phrases. She has a stutter when nervous, mixing words up or mispronouncing them.
Wealth & Financial state
Kazakov isn't very wealthy, generally middle class.
