Have you ever been introduced to something new and fallen entirely in love with it? Well that's the base of where KairiStrive comes from. Sort of.
One day, when I was bored out of my mind, a friend of mine told me about this game called 'Kingdom Hearts'. I'd heard the name before and knew somewhat of it's origins, but never had I played the game.
After a few days of research, I had known nearly all there was to know about 'Kingdom Hearts' and had found myself bound by it's amazing fantasy about three friends by the names of Riku, Kairi and Sora.
After I found out about Kairi, I discovered I loved everything about her. Her name then became my favorite name.
During my research of Kingdom Hearts, I had been thinking of writing a story based on a character I had been dieing to write about. Being known at the start as only 'the terribly cursed', she was then named Kairi.
After a few days of plotting out my storyline, I had chosen her last name based on her beliefs, personality and lastly, her willing to never give up. The last name then came to me as being 'Strive', as in Kairi strives for what she believes in.
Anywho, after I had written the storyline and the first few pages of the story, my character, Kairi Strive, became an inspiring character and I decided I wanted to be just like her. Even if she really is just a fictional character.
Finally, after finding out about Protagonize, I wanted my Protagonize name to be as great and angelic-like as my character, Kairi Strive.
