KENZI WAS A LATE BLOOMER WHO WAS TALL AND AWKWARD WELL INTO HIGH SCHOOL CAUSING HER TO BE BULLIED FREQUENTLY FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL TO HIGH SCHOOL FOR BEING A TOMBOY WHO WAS OFTEN CONFUSED FOR A BOY AND LABELED AS A MISLABELED AS A LESBIAN. BECAUSE OF HER COMPLETE SOCIAL DISCONNECT, IN SPITE OF "BLOSSOMING" BETWEEN JUNIOR AND SENIOR YEAR SHE MISSED HER SENIOR PROM TO STAY HOME AND PLAY WORLD OF WARCRAFT, THOUGH AS PER HER FATHER'S RULES, SHE WASN'T PERMITTED TO DATE ANYWAY. SHE WENT ON A FEW DATES EARLY FRESHMAN YEAR IN COLLEGE, BUT NOTHING QUITE PANNED OUT FOR HER AND SHE WAS CONFUSED BY THE SUDDEN ATTENTION SHE RECEIVED FROM BOYS AS IT WAS STILL COMPLETELY FOREIGN. BECAUSE OF THIS THE ONLY BOYS SHE SPENT TIME WITH WERE FRIENDS, AND AS AN EXTENSION OF THIS SHE REMAINED A VIRGIN UNTIL SOPHOMORE YEAR AND ROMANTICALLY STUNTED UNTIL JUNIOR YEAR.
has struggled with anorexia / bulimia since middle school, only formally "came out" about it in 2017, prior to that she blamed her constant weight fluctuation on stress, suffering from panic attacks and having a dysfunctional schedule. she was diagnosed with major depressive disorder the same year and has since been under close psychiatrict treatment as well as having her weight closely monitored.
WAS INTRODUCED TO GAMING VERY YOUNG VIA HER BROTHER JESSE'S CONSOLE GAMES. WHEN HE BRANCHED INTO MMO'S, SHE DID TOO. AT 15, SHE WAS RECRUITED INTO HER BROTHER'S GUILD AS A HOLY PALADIN AND HIS GUILDMATES AGREED TO TAKE HER INTO THEIR RAIDS. EVER THE OVERACHIEVER, HOWEVER, KENZI QUICKLY LEARNED THE ROPES OF RAID HEALING BECOMING THE GROUP'S TOP HEALER. THE GROUP WENT ON TO ACHIEVE THE REALM FIRST KILL FOR HEROIC MADNESS OF DEATHWING, BUT SHE SOON WITHDREW FROM THE PVE WORLD WHEN EXPERIMENT 12-B DROPPED AND SHE WON THE ROLL WHICH CAUSED TENSION IN THE GUILD SEEING AS HOW SHE WAS STILL NEW TO THE GAME. FROM THERE SHE FORMED A THREES TEAM WITH HER BROTHER AND ONE OF HIS FRIENDS WHICH IS WHERE SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH THE PVP SIDE OF WORLD OF WARCRAFT.
AS FATE WOULD HAVE IT, JUST A YEAR AFTER FORMING THE TEAM, HER BROTHER MARRIED HIS HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART AND SUBSEQUENTLY QUIT THE GAME TO FOCUS ON REAL LIFE THINGS, LEAVING THE GUILD IN KENZI'S HANDS. SHE SPENT THE NEXT YEAR OR SO LOOKING FOR A NEW ARENA PARTNER AND EVENTUALLY FOUND ONE IN CUTTER (MUHAMMAD) WHO SHE'D DEVELOPED A FRIENDSHIP WITH THROUGH THE GAME. THEIR TWO'S TEAM STRUGGLED THROUGH TWO MAIN CHANGES ON KENZI'S BEHALF, BUT FINALLY ACHIEVED THE GLADIATOR TITLE IN SEASON TWO OF WARLORDS OF DRAENOR, BUT THEIR RATING WAS NOT THE ONLY THING TO CHANGE. SEVERAL MONTHS BEFORE THEY GOT THEIR TITLE, ADMISSIONS OF FEELINGS FOR ONE ANOTHER WERE SLIPPED THROUGH A LATE NIGHT IN DISCORD AND THEY WERE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY “OFFICIAL.” THEIR ONLINE RELATIONSHIP LASTED APPROXIMATELY A YEAR BEFORE SHE BROKE UP WITH HIM MID-AUGUST 2016 DUE TO EXPERIENCING CONFLICTING FEELINGS FOR A FRIEND.
quit WORLD OF WARCRAFT MID-NOVEMBER 2016 AND RETIRED HER "MAIN," SERENITY, AN UNDEAD HOLY PRIEST CITING VIA A YOUTUBE VIDEO THAT SHE NO LONGER ENJOYED PLAYING THE GAME AND WISHED TO FOCUS HER STREAMING TIME ON MORE INDIE HORROR TITLES.
KENZI ENJOYS PLAYING AND STREAMING MANY GAMES THOUGH SHE LARGELY FOCUSES ON INDIE HORROR GAMES AND THE PRIMARY GAME SHE STREAMS IS DEAD BY DAYLIGHT. SHE PRESENTLY IS PART OF A SMALL TEAM OF STREAMERS CALLED THE ENTITLED ELITE AND HAS A SUBSCRIBER COUNT OF JUST OVER 4000. HER CHAT EMOTES ARE THEMED ON A MIX OF HER PETS AND HORROR MOVIE SYMBOLS (SUCH AS A JASON VOORHEES MASK).
SHE WAS GIVEN A REAL LIFE REPLICA OF FROSTMOURNE BY HER BROTHER, JESSE, FOR HER 16TH BIRTHDAY. SHE HAS NEVER REMOVED IT FROM THE DISPLAY CASE. IT IS HER MOST PRIZED POSSESSION DUE TO WRATH OF THE LICH KING CONTENT BEING HER FAVORITE AND NOBODY IS PERMITTED TO TOUCH IT.
VISITS HER PARENTS IN MAINE ALMOST EVERY HOLIDAY, BUT ESPECIALLY OVER WINTER BREAK. HER FAVORITE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE GOES BACK HOME ARE PLAYING ICE/STREET HOCKEY, SLEDDING AND ICE SKATING.
SHE IS ONE HALF PALESTINIAN JEWISH ON HER FATHER'S SIDE AND PARTS DUTCH, SCOTTISH, FRENCH, IRISH, AND FINNISH, ON HER MOTHER'S; SHE IS A PRACTICING JEW AND TECHNICALLY, FIRST GENERATION AMERICAN ON THE NAZARI SIDE.
IS STILL A TOTAL SPORTS JUNKIE, FORMERLY PLAYED ON USC'S WOMEN'S LACROSSE TEAM BEFORE QUITTING IN 2017. HER FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH, HANDS DOWN, IS BASKETBALL AND DURING MARCH MADNESS, HER FINGERNAILS ARE IN THEIR ABSOLUTE WORST CONDITION DUE TO NERVOUS BITING WHICH ALSO HAPPENS TO BE HER WORST HABIT.
GOES THROUGH PERIODS OF "RECHARGING" DUE TO THE FACT THAT SHE IS AN OVERCOMPENSATING INTROVERT. DURING THESE TIMES, IT'S NOT UNLIKELY TO NOT SEE HER OR HEAR FROM HER AND APART FROM HER TENDENCY TO LOOK AT THE FUTURE RATHER THAN THE PRESENT, SHE CONSIDERS IT ONE OF HER GREATEST WEAKNESSES.
DRIVES A 2015 DODGE CHALLENGER THAT HER PARENTS HAD PAINTED METALLIC PINK AS ONE OF HER HANUKKAH PRESENTS.
has 4 pets. an orange tabby named general nazgrim who hates everyone but her, including lo unless he gets confused; a grey tabby named garona halforcen, and two shiba inus she adopted with her ex-boyfriend and later renamed, samael aka lightbringer and tom ellis.
"victory or death" and its orcish counterpart "lok'tar ogar" above a horde symbol on her right hip, got on her 18th birthday, matching tattoo with her oldest brother, jesse (his is on his upper right bicep). a small blue open half moon on the outside portion of her left wrist, matches johnny's which they got together in spring of 2017. the arabic word for forever also in blue ink ( إلى الأب ) inner right wrist, blue ink. the tolkien based dwarven word, "amralime" in script wrapped around her right ankle, at the close in faint red ink is the number 20, johnny's former hockey number it is also a nod to her favorite song by the decemberists, red right ankle. "norma jeane" behind her left ear in very small writing, it is her way of paying homage to elton john's song candle in the wind and her understanding of marilyn monroe's struggle with depression at the same time as kenzi feels it mirrors her own.
rais nazari ⁄ father executive chef, michelin star. comes equipped with an overprotective streak, dad jokes, and an inherent need to fix everything, kenzi inherited the latter of the 3. still daddy's little girl, but up until recently left him clued out of her personal life.
ruby nazari ⁄ mother yoga instructor / studio owner. out of all 4 nazari children, kenzi most resembles ruby in her youth and gets along with her least. kenzi inherited her emotional streak and habit of crying over the littlest things. "the cool mom." asks way too many personal questions and has always tried to be more like a friend than a mother.
jesse nazari ⁄ older brother game developer based in denver, currntly employed at illfonic, transferring to california soon! taught her gaming and emo music. they speak nerd together and share an extremely close bond which includes daily facetime, often with his wife, tia and their baby (her neice!!!) gemma.
lorelai nazari ⁄ twin sister night and day, but their differences balance each other out. older than kenzi by 10 minutes.
bradley nazari ⁄ younger brother family baby, not particularly close.
