@Necro: Thanks for your help! I'll provide an alternative in the form, and also the original idea (which I'm just throwing out there because i really like it and didn't explain the BASIC functions well, so just in case it's actually acceptable I'll put it on the table.)
Name: Astrid Polaris (<
Hero Name: Winter Owl
Age (13-15): 14
Appearance: Astrid has pale skin and a bit of a golden tan from being outside. Her hair is a nice platinum blond that she inherited from her Scandinavian parents, and she usually has it in a braid, ponytail, or bun. She has distinct cheekbones and bright gray eyes. She is decently tall, around 5' 4 and a half inches. She has a medium build, but on the lithe and willowy side with long legs and normal shoulder width. She usually wears black yoga pants or pale blue jeans, a blue, grey, or white top, and a grey or blue-and-teal sweater/jacket. At school, she has a dark blue backpack or purse. Sometimes has a teal or dark-blue scarf, too, and is always wearing her Miraculous choker and blue-or-grey stud earrings.
Personality: Her main traits are intelligence and problem solving. In the past, she was very defensive and easily riled up. People liked to tease her about who she liked, her looks, and all that. She even got unsettled/self conscious when someone suggested that she should cut her hair. Now, she has begun to open up. She no longer reacts as violently/obviously to harsh comments, because she has built an emotional facade that hides when she's actually annoyed or distressed at someone. She is now more sarcastic, joking, and likes to join in conversations. Sometimes she accidentally hurts someone with her sarcasm and academic pride, and she knows that in the past she's made people really angry by the way she acts (that the school problems are quite easy, etc) and tries not to boast as much. She tends to tell long stories and is still a bit self-conscious that people will get bored or jealous. Her deepest wish is probably that someone likes her romantically. She enjoys reading, playing computer games like Minecraft, and sketching. She likes to ski, swim, skate, and sail. She has a part-time job at Arvid's Classic Water Tours, which is a small but successful tour company that runs tours on the water. Sometimes she feels out-of-place among her classmates, and drifts off.
General overview: Intelligent. Has changed a lot in the past year: is still quite self-conscious, now she is stable and open. Does not like when people tease her, but she can generally brush it off. Quite proud of her academic skills, perhaps more than she should be, but likes to help people with school (usually.) and is sensitive about how her actions affect other people and how they see her. She rarely makes decisions she regrets because she thinks it through and considers all the angles.
Hero Appearance: Winter Owl's suit is mainly bright white. On her arms, chest, and legs, there are black barred patterns like those of a snowy owl. Her shoulders and sides have a feathered pattern. At her waist, there is an array of snowy owl feathers (white with barred black) like a tail: kinda like one of those fancy coats that splits in two at the back, but it's only one sheaf of feathers and there is no coat. There is also an array (I'm using this word way too much) of snowy owl feathers attached to her arms, to make them look a bit like wings (which are not functional. Purely decorative.) Her mask is also white, with more black patterns. She has flexible boots that fit very well to her suit. Like the rest of her, they are black and white.
Hero Personality: Winter Owl is more confident, stable, and unflappable than Astrid. She's sarcastic and ready too fight, but also doesn't pursue or engage until she's worked out the best plan and style of attack. however, she still sometimes feels out of place among the heroes, and doesn't always agree with their plans. When someone is hurt, she will generally sacrifice their pride and get them to a safe place or hospital, because she knows they might be injured further in the fighting.
Weapon: (I guess just pick whichever one you think works better.) Option 1: A set of throwing knifes. Each are well balanced and shaped like feathers, and are in hidden sheaths around her body (mainly on her legs, are, and waist.) IF there is a hero who can repair everything, like ladybug, can they be sharp enough to sink into stone? She does have to run around during the battle to pick them up (unless this can be like a cheesy TV show where everything shows up when it's all over) Option 2 (which tbh I don't like as much): a set of sharp 'talons' that extend from her fingertips (no, not gross that way), and she... slices with them. The talons accentuate her style-less martial arts.
Powers: Night Vision, typical Hero agility and speed, very very stealthy (very silent), and IF IT'S NOT TOO MUCH, slightly enhanced eyesight hat lets her see details farther away.
Special Power (Cataclysm, Lucky Charm): Northern Gale: Winter Owl summons a sustained high-power blast of very, very cold air and (when Ukpik is strong enough) ice/snow particles. She directs it with her arms at enemies, pushing them backwards, into another hero's hands, etc. This miniature windstorm lasts for (I don't know which is acceptable: 30 seconds, 1 minutes, 1 min 30sec, or 2 min: can you please tell me which is best?) and afterwards/during, her Miraculous pendant counts down.
Miraculous Appearance: Winter Owl's/Astrid's Miraculous is a silver pendant on a black choker. It is shaped like an array of five feathers. Each has a strip of crystal down the center, which becomes black and when Ukpik is inside. Every minute after Northern Gale is activated, the stone inlay in a feather turns pale blue and then fades to clear when it's all over.
Mental Strengths: very intelligent and like to problem-solve. Doesn't make bad decisions very often- Ukpik and years of thinking analytically have helped with that.
Physical Strengths: A proficient runner in PE and in general. Good balance.
Emotional Strengths: Is now more emotionally stable and doesn't get as upset when she's distressed.
Mental Weaknesses: not very good at managing a group. Prefers to lead herself and follow herself instead of work with others in school. Want more? sorry my brain is dead)
Physical Weaknesses: Not exactly... Strong. uhhhhhhhh, doesn't have good stamina or good aim with a ball. (Throwing knives, yes, other projectiles, no.)
Emotional Weaknesses (Akuma prey): Her deepest wish is too have someone romantically like her, and sometimes that chafes when no one sees her as pretty or attractive. She also gets lonely sometimes when she's drifting between people. Also gets rather annoyed and upset when someone beats her academically.
Other: Sorry the entire strengths/weaknesses section was really rough
Name: Ukpik (Inuktitut word for Snowy Owl)
Animal: Snowy Owl
Personality: Ukpik is a rather intuitive Kwami, and he/she can easily pick up when something even minor is bothering Astrid. He genuinely cares about his hero; when she's down, Ukpik will be trying his very hardest to make her happy. However, he is a rather stereotypical owl. He is very wise and knows a thing or two about tactics: when Astrid is sitting in her room or in a corner, trying to make a desicion, he'll argue it out with her. Sometimes she gets a bit annoyed of his constant counter-ideas, but he's just trying to help her make a de scion she won't regret later and that will be the best for everyone.
Appearance: Ukpik has the same large head and small features of other kwamis. He is white, with a round head and very short antennae things. If allowed, he has small wings instead of arms OR his arms are a bit longer than normal and have tiny white feathers draped on them, and both him and his body are barred with black stripes and patterns. He has golden eyes, and a bit of a beak. Instead of small legs, he has an array of tiny feathers like a tail. (Sorry I couldn't really focus on that section)
Food: Ukpik likes fish and small mammals, but neither of those are readily available to Astrid. Instead, she started giving him jerky and has a stash in her backpack, locker, and room.
Other: So are Kwamis that are a different gender to the hero allowed? If not, i'm cool with her being female.
