Your motivations are laughable. You can rant about your master plan to kill all "normal folk" all you want, but have you once considered you may be the problem here? You're a bully who fights for a xenophobic grudge and nothing else. I fight because I know there are things worth fighting for. I fight because I know people are counting on me. My buddies, my sister, my parents, I fight in their name for their safety. I can stand up to you...and I can win!
~ Kayden when initially confronting Simon.

You know, I always considered myself laid back kinda' dude. Never once letting my emotions getting the better of me. Why? Because I heard horror stories about how my anger and sorrow could end all of civilization as we know it. But when You tried to kill my sister, when your goonies tried to slaughter my buddies, when you had the gall to try and make me switch sides like we were best buds, you best believe I restrained myself. But here? I finally get to go all out and see strong I really am.
~ Kayden's last stand against Simon

Summary

Kayden Heart is the main protagonist of Vintasia: A school of magic and a student of Schimmerwitz. He is the leader of House Phoenix, which resides in the Vinz District. Like the focus of his house, Kayden has no real strength above all else, but has the potential to grow into anything.

Personality

Kayden Heart is a good natured and high spirited teenager with a heart of a child. Kayden is very noble, kind, caring, charitable, yet also suffers from a degree of recklessness and lack of care for his own being. Growing up, Kayden was [and still is] a devoted son and doting big brother who works to the bone to keep his parents and little sister happy. Due to this, he picked up several odd skills along the way, such as cooking and cleaning.

Kayden is generally friendly and mild mannered and gets along well with others. From day 1 of moving to Schimmerwitz, Kayden became good friends with Beatrice "Blossom" Belmadere, Victoria Gilbert, Dylan Nova and Alionis Noverous. One of Kayden's most striking personality traits is his sheer competitiveness. He's willing to turn anything into a competition, sometimes even if his opponent does not. This drive for competition makes him a natural rival to both Aerith Lutter and Chase Carolina. This competitive spirit is both beneficial and harmful however. It has been beneficial in the sense that it has genuinely driven Kayden to perform better and learn more skills, but has been harmful in the sense that it drove him to view serious events as games.

Another striking personality trait is his sense of humor. Always cracking jokes and one liners, even in dire situations to "lighten the mood". He's also very playful, and is one of the few people who not only understands, but appreciates Lucious odd sense of humor. While not everyone -- or many people in general -- enjoy Kaydens sense of humor, his jokes tend to land a soft spot in peoples hearts. Though not as pronounced as his humor and competitive spirit, Kayden is also very adventurous. Growing up, Kayden went on many hikes and camping trips with his father, Norman, these trips would fuel a desire to explore for many years to come.

Though while generally lax (when out competing, that is), Kayden does know when to step up his act and act like the leader he is. As a leader, Kayden always puts his team above himself, attempting to assure their safety above all else, with little regard for his own. In contrast to his high spirited nature, Kayden is a very slow and tactical leader, often employing tactics and strategy instead of bum rushing. This stark contrast in his personality catches friends and foes alike. Despite his general charitable and generous demeanor, Kayden can be selfish at times, feeling what he's earned is his and his alone, but will eventually do the right thing in the end.

History

Early Life

Kayden was born in Kings Heart to Veladoco Ulb-Vinz and Melody Olb-Vinz and thus is a descended of Vinz Ulb-Yot. Veladoco and Melody were proud and young parents who loved each other and loved their son. Veladoco in particular was proud of his bloodline and lineage and knew his sons potential was phenomenal. Unfortunately, when Kings Heart was attacked brutally by Simon Johnson (Then known by "The Ringleader"). Knowing that their bloodline would make them valuable targets, they were forced to flee. They fled to the United States of America. They dropped off Kuu to be raised by Melody's sister, Nelly. The couple returned to Kings Heart to fight the good fight. Though injured, the two survived and with the effort of other wizards, drove off Simons forces.

The two made the difficult decision to leave Kuu to be raised by Melody's sister, as to not draw and violence his way. After a few arrangements, the two would enter Kuu's life again (now named Kayden to fit in) under the guise of his aunt and uncle rather than parents. Kayden would be raised by his aunt and uncle, believing they were his biological parents, along with his cousin/little sister Katie Heart.

Childhood

From there, Kayden enjoyed a mostly stable childhood. His aunt and uncle treated him as if he was there own and never once showing favoritism towards Katie. Growing up, Kayden assumed a typical big brother role towards Katie, protective and a bit doting, but also competitive with her and the two shared a fierce sibling rivalry. He lived in "the boonies" and didn't have any neighbors and occasionally expressed a level of loneliness due to that.

Kaydens school life however, was always a bit odd. He never really stuck to any group, but he did have a few friends he was quite close to. They were Alfred Jones, Samantha Colins and Benny Benedict. They were the only friends Kayden ever really had growing up, sans Katie. They hung out often and Kayden invited them over every now and again.

Can spare with Aerith, who tore apart Kim's pocket realm, which contained a mirror image version of Kings Heart) | High Universal (Had infinite power and mass) | Class EJ (Sparred with Lucious mono e mono, who could take a direct hit from the Kuma-Gora.

Virtually Limitless when empowered by "The Solution" (They were said to be capable of fighting "until the sun went kaboom")

Range: Standard Melee Range physically, up to Several Acres with Telekinesis (Should have comparable to range to most wizards of his level, which can cause ruin to city blocks and forest). Townwide with Weather Manipulation (Filled roughly 6 km^2 of land with clouds by accident) | Townwide with Telekinesis (Can affect objects roughly 2 kilometers away).

Citywide with Telekinesis (Roughly equal in range to Nolan, who can destroy small mountains). At least Citywide with Weather Manipulation at peak showings (If his emotions were to reach unstable levels, he was stated to be able to create a typhoon larger than a fleet of ships) | High Universal (Can warp the entirety of the Dreamscape) | Countrywide (Shook the Isle of Monsters with physical strikes only. Wizards specializing in weather are said to be able to create "civilization destroying" storms in the past) | Countrywide. Continental with Weather Manipulation (Generated so many clouds that Ashley's pocket realm was overloaded) | Planetary (Clairvoyance allows him to see anywhere on earth, and an affect anywhere he pleases. Created a storm strong enough that it filled the entire Aetherial Plane and was ferocious enough to shake it)

Intelligence: Relatively high. Kayden never really considered himself a "thinking type", which leads him to underestimate his own intelligence. Because of this, Kayden occasionally surprises himself if he ends up doing something "pretty smart". One of Kaydens biggest strengths is his ability to quickly address the situation at hand, while not necessarily an analytical mind, he can "read enemies" and predict and they'll do next. He's also shown himself to be a quick study, able to blaze through magical textbooks. His ability to read enemies eventually made Kayden a strategist of sorts, though no where near on the level of some of his peers such as Victoria, Aerith and Atherious. Kayden is also a great leader in battle, even if he didn't except himself to be at first. His leadership skills were put to the test many times, but with his selfless attitude and quick thinking, he almost always got through with his team unscathed.

On the battlefield, Kayden is a skilled user of spears and staves, as well as a competent hand to hand fighter. Being able to fight toe go to with the likes of Aerith and Alionis, two of Schimmerwitz greatest fighters. In terms of overall skill, Kayden is nearly on par members of House Behemoth, but still considerably behind them. He's certainty not the greatest fighter in Schimmerwitz and has been defeated by several members in both fisticuffs and magic based duels. Due to his "Normal Folk" heritage, Kayden isn't as initially well versed in the arts of the mystical, but catches up somewhat fast. Even after catching up, Kayden is still behind on both complex and simple aspects of wizardry. Despite this, Kayden is still an overall competent wizard, especially for his age and can clash with even teachers.

Work in progress

Weaknesses: Kayden was born and raised in "Normal Society", so his magical knowledge is initially very low. A bit to specialized in telekinesis and weather magic to really make use of his other spells, which occasionally forces him to "brute it". Doesn't really excel in any skill form [a general problem with members of House Phoenix]. His emotions can be flared and manipulated easily if you know what buttons to press.
